Josh and Hazel’s Guide To Not Dating Review

“I learned a very important thing that day: my mom would never try to change for a man, and I wouldn’t either.”

– Christina Lauren


Hazel Camille Bradford knows she’s a lot to take—and frankly, most men aren’t up to the challenge. If her army of pets and thrill for the absurd don’t send them running, her lack of filter means she’ll say exactly the wrong thing in a delicate moment. Their loss. She’s a good soul in search of honest fun. 

Josh Im has known Hazel since college, where her zany playfulness proved completely incompatible with his mellow restraint. From the first night they met—when she gracelessly threw up on his shoes—to when she sent him an unintelligible email while in a post-surgical haze, Josh has always thought of Hazel more as a spectacle than a peer. But now, ten years later, after a cheating girlfriend has turned his life upside down, going out with Hazel is a breath of fresh air. 

Not that Josh and Hazel date. At least, not each other. Because setting each other up on progressively terrible double blind dates means there’s nothing between them…right?

My Review


This book is funny, flirty, sweet and absolutely adorable! I so want to be BFF’s with Hazel! So is hilarious, and absolutely no filter- my kind of person! Not only is she super amusing, but she has such a strong and confident sense of self, she is compassionate and so supportive. I absolutely admire her for that!

Josh well he’s not too shabby himself. Very swoon worthy.

The other thing I absolutely loved from this book is the strong family connections! Both Hazel and Josh have a strong sense of family that are so accepting.

This is an amazing friends to lovers love story that I COULD NOT put down! Overall, it’s beautifully written, had it all- friends, romance, animals, humor, all of it!

Could not recommend this book enough!
