Fiction – Romance

Goodreads Summary

Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun.

Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air.

Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?


Five reasons why I loved Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating:

  1. It was a fun and entertaining read. It didn’t make me think too hard but also had plenty of good content that kept me reading.
  2. I loved that Hazel was a quirky and different character. The fact that she kept her vases in her oven to keep them from falling and breaking just added to my love for her.
  3. I was left laughing out loud on numerous occasions thanks to the hilarious dialogue. Christina Lauren knows how to do humor well!
  4. It was short and sweet! I always love a book that isn’t drawn out or overdone just for the sake of adding some extra pages.
  5. I’m a sucker for a love story.
