49. Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren
Hazel is loud, brash, kind of crazy, and a lot of drama. Josh is quiet, reserved, and likes everything just so. After being thrown in each other’s paths multiple times during college under circumstances that did not engender a deeper friendship including Hazel throwing up on Josh’s shoes at a party, they never thought they would see each other again. Now 10 years later fate has caused their paths to cross once again. They finally strike up a real friendship but decide there is no way they could ever be more and set each other up on increasingly terrible blind double dates to prove it.
This was a cute little romance novel. The characters were certainly caricatures, but they were lovable characters nonetheless. I’m not big on romance novels, but I found this one endearing so I imagine people who do like romance novels would really like it. I give it a 7 out of 10.
