Descripción

“Bursts with humor, heart, and great energy. I loved it! Park is a hilarious new voice in women’s fiction.”—Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient 

“[A] punchy adult debut set in the world of video game design. Park makes tough topics go down easy by couching them in wry humor and lighthearted romance, and her fierce, snarky heroine is irresistible. This smart rom-com is a winner.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In a debut perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Sally Thorne, a junior video game producer finds herself getting closer and closer to the one person she hates most after a mass troll attack online almost ruins her life. 

Melody Joo is thrilled to land her dream job as a video game producer, but her new position comes with challenges: an insufferable CEO; sexist male coworkers; and an infuriating—yet distractingly handsome—intern, Nolan MacKenzie, aka “the guy who got hired because his uncle is the boss.”

Just when Melody thinks she’s made the worst career move of her life, her luck changes. While joking with a friend, she creates a mobile game that has male strippers fighting for survival in a post-apocalyptic world. Suddenly Melody’s “joke” is her studio’s most high-profile project—and Melody’s running the show.

When Nolan is assigned to Melody’s team, she’s sure he’ll be useless. But as they grow closer, she realizes he’s smart and sexy, which makes Melody want to forget he’s her intern. As their attraction deepens, she knows it’s time to pump the brakes, even with her Korean parents breathing down her neck to hurry up and find a man.

With her project about to launch, Melody suddenly faces a slew of complications, including a devastating trolling scandal. Could the man she’s falling hard for help her play the game to win—in work and in love?

    This story was entirely too long for no reason and full of random, pointless events better suited to a movie script than a book. The love story didn’t inspire cute fluffy feelings and the narrators voice for men is GRATING. They all sound like nasal Neanderthals. Racism and sexism are rife in the book, but I think that’s an accurate depiction of life and the corporate world for so many people - myself included. Still, this book didn’t resonate with me at all. I’m at chapter 19 and just groaned when I saw 10 chapters remained. Hate to rag on someone’s art - but this was not well executed and the loathing to loving part was lacking.

    I'm trying to get through this book but the amount of sexism/racism the main character experiences is just.. really draining. It may be cathartic for some, but the focus of the book seems to be more "workplace sexism nightmare " than any romance. It feels like a bad dream you want to wake up from, and I don't read romance looking for that experience.

    Also, the narrators voice is quite grating when she's voicing the men's lines. Like it's difficult to listen to because it's so bad. Her voice is nice otherwise, it's just the men's voices that are distracting.

    1.5 stars. This was a chaotic mess and not in a fun way.

    Enjoied this book quite a bit, however, it was very hard to tell which guy she was falling for/end up with as there were 3 guys that she loathed at first sight. I honestly assumed it was a different guy for almost the whole book. I also didn't like all of the everyone is sexiest and racist parts of the book. If you ignore those things it's a pretty good story.

    Loathe at First Sight by Suzanne Park.

    > A woman takes a job working for a gaming company. Her boss is an ass, her coworker is an ass. Her friends are getting married and her parents are on her to find a man. When she gets an opportunity to develop a game geared towards female gamers, she starts getting trolled by male gamers and her life gets thrown upside down.

    This isn’t your typical romance. There was way more to this story than a woman falling for a man. This was a love letter to female gamers. Us women have been talked down to, told we’re not good enough or told gaming is ONLY for men. Well guess what? GAMING IS FOR WOMEN TOO!

    I loved Melody’s take no sh*t attitude at work. She didn’t care who she was talking to, she spoke her mind. It was a breath of fresh air. As for Nolan, I think I fell for him right away. I can’t explain why, I just got a good guy vibe from him and I went with it.
