Book Review: The Hating Game
Ever thought of mud-wrestling your ex-boyfriend? How about staying in a caravan with two of your ex-boyfriends? What if you unwittingly had a second chance at romance with 'the one'? Would you take it? These are just a few of the scenarios Mattie Johns must overcome to win the £200,000 prize money for the reality show ' The Hating Game.' And if you're a fan of Chicklit and Romantic Comedy, pull up a pew, - this could be a book for you.
Mattie Johns is a young business woman whose recruitment agency could go under, -unless she signs up to a reality game show. Enter, Nate - a very ambitious media type who is very keen to make his name in the show biz world. This is like X-factor and Mystery Date rolled up in one, even though you know who the candidates are, you really want to find out which one Mattie may or may not give a second chance of the happily ever after with.
Now - being a fan of reality shows I enjoyed the jostling behind the scenes of the Hating Game, the bickering between producers and crew - does this really go on? *whispers* It could. I don't know but it was entertaining. This is a chicklit book which delivers funny scenes, a touch of snark, and love -lost,found and unrequited.
