Between a troublesome client and my fake-girlfriend-for-my-sister’s-Cancun-wedding canceling at the last minute.
I’m having the day from hell.

So one of my superstar employees is boarding the same plane.
With her help, I could kill two problems with one tequila shot.
That thing about never mixing business with pleasure?
I should’ve remembered.

We’re after the same client.
I’m after her heart.
The trick is how to win one without losing the other.
Because when love has you by the balls, it’s time to play dirty.

Something Like Hate by Claudia Burgoa is the extended full length story from The Accidental Hookup novella. The full length novel is a doozy of a story. It steps over the line for any Human Resources Department, oversteps employer/employee relationships, business protocol, and redefines friendly professional competition in a cut throat market.
Miller is forced to attend his sister’s destination wedding in Cancun. He doesn’t have time for the wedding let alone all of his family nonsense even though he loves them dearly. His mother is trying to set him up with the bridesmaids so he tells a little white lie and says he is bringing a plus one. Now he needs to find a date for the weekend. He gets his best friend to line one up for a price. At the last minute she backs out. He’s at the airport without a date and the plane for Cancun will be boarding soon. When he spots Claire, his superstar employee from the media advertising department, he devises a plan. He is going to make Claire his plus one.
Claire is finally taking her much needed vacation that “almost” didn’t happen because of her greedy bosses. Now her one of her bosses is trying to bribe her to be his weekend girlfriend at a wedding. At first she wants nothing to do with him until she realizes this is an opportunity to get more vacation time and an all expenses paid trip to Tuscany.
What starts out as a business transaction turns into a fun vacation hookup for both of them. Miller decides to spend the week with Claire in Cancun. Paradise doesn’t last forever and business butts it’s ugly head. Miller leaves Cancun and Claire without an explanation.
Claire is not only embarrassed and humiliated but she’s also mad. Her exotic beach vacation was ruined by her boss. She’s dreading returning to work but never imagined how bad it would be. While she was away on vacation she lost her account, her promotion, her job, and Miller. Nothing can fix this kind of humiliation and heartbreak.
What happens next is more than Miller doing a little groveling, it will take years for him to gain her forgiveness.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book because love wasn’t easy. Claire and Miller both had to work really hard for their professional lives and love lives. They had to learn things the hard way in order to fully appreciate their feelings for one another. There is a thin line between love and hate. Which side will they end up on? Read the book!
