About THE HATING GAME: When man-eater Mattie Johns agrees to star on a dating game show to save her ailing recruitment business, she's confident she'll sail through to the end without letting down the perma-guard she's perfected from years of her love 'em and leave 'em dating strategy. After all, what can go wrong with dating a few losers and hanging out long enough to pick up a juicy £200,000 prize? Plenty, Mattie discovers, when it's revealed that the contestants are four of her very unhappy exes. Can Mattie confront her past to get the prize money she so desperately needs, or will her exes finally wreak their long-awaited revenge? And what about the ambitious TV producer whose career depends on stopping her from making it to the end?
Talli Roland's debut is a rollicking can't-put-it-down read. The characters are well-developed and believable; you find yourself rooting for nearly all of them by the end. The dialogue rings true and it was fun to see both sides of the story, from Mattie's point of view and that of the producers 'backstage'. I stayed up way past my bedtime turning the pages as I couldn't wait to find out how Mattie would extract herself from her latest scrape – and which man she would ultimately choose.
If you happen to catch my name in there... Let's just say I had no idea that was coming. Thanks Talli!
