Summary

USA Today best-selling author Claudia Burgoa spins a new romantic comedy. This hot office-rivalry romance will have you swooning and laughing your panties off! 

Claire 

Know that saying about how what happens in paradise, stays in paradise? Yeah, no. 

That other one about first impressions? 

Check this out: tall. Broad shoulders. Fine butt. No manners. 

Expensive aftershave I could swear I’ve sniffed somewhere before. 

I should keep my mind on the sun, the sand, and the tequila and keep my hands to myself. 

But it’s Cancun. And there’s sun and sand and tequila...and when Mr. Annoying turns on the charm, I can’t resist. 

That crucial thing about never sleeping with your boss’ boss? 

Yeah. Too late. 

That promotion that I was a shoo-in for? History. 

If it’s the last thing I do, I’ll make Miller regret he made me his competition. 

But I can’t stop thinking that thing about keeping your enemies closer....

Miller

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. 

Then I spot Claire. 

Sexy. Smart. Sassy. 

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. 

Now the hottest one-night stand I've ever had is my biggest business rival. 

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. 

It's an enemies-to-lovers romance with just the right amount of heart and humor.

One of my favourites!

Adored Miller and Claire's story the first time round I read it. This was a thoroughly enjoyable 're-read' and I loved being surprised by the storyline again, as it's been a few years since I read the book.

Claire is strong, courageous and confident. She's not afraid to push her boundaries. She's a good person and generally only has people's best interests at heart. Miller has been burnt by love in the past, which makes it difficult for him to trust women. In his heart, he knows Claire is one of the good ones and one mistake cost him his happiness - a happiness he wasn't even looking for. However, I loved how hard he fought for her when she was back in his life. Their story was sweet, super sexy, amusing and also emotional.

Teddy and Stephanie do a brilliant job of bringing them to life. I loved listening to their voices. Thoroughly recommend.

A Fine Line Between Love and Hate

I had read the ebook awhile ago and had forgotten how much Miller was a jerk to Claire. I applauded her for standing up for herself and telling him she deserved better. He did redeem himself by eating crow to get her back. I lived hearing the characters brought to life by Teddy Hamilton and Stephanie Nemeth-Parker. I have not listened to these narrators before. They are paired well and well suited to this book. I have to say Teddy's voice is sexy. I could listen to him all day lol!

Something Like Hate

I always love picking up one of Claudia's books, and was excited to read Miller and Claire's story.

The two of them work together and things get complicated when real feelings develop between them after spending time together at his sister's wedding. They had a great connection and fun banter, and I enjoyed seeing how they would work through everything to get an HEA.

The story moves at a good pace and I thought the characters were nicely developed and interesting.

Claudia is a great storyteller and this was a great book to listen to on audio. The narrators were great, and I especially liked Teddy Hamilton as Miller.

So much heart!

Oh my word… talk about feels. Teddy Hamilton and Stephanie Nemeth-Parker had me hooked on this book with their performance. I felt EVERYTHING! The author wrote the words but these narrators performed it with so much heart. I couldn’t get enough of them as Claire and Miller!! This is absolutely a wonderful audiobook!

Loved It

This was such a great story. I loved the storyline and how it evolved. The characters weren't the usual hero and heroine in how the story went on. The time lapse was such a great touch.

Hilarious, Heartfelt, and Steamy Romance!

I fell in Love with Miller and Claire when they first appeared in the vacation anthology collection, Spring Fling. I am so, so happy that Burgoa gave us more of their fun, and steamy, forbidden/second chance romance!
Claire Solis is hardworking and extremely talented at creating social media campaigns. She is about to embark on a vacation with her friends when she happens to run into the very demanding and sexy CEO of her company on her flight. Miller is on his way to his sisters wedding at the same tropical location. He is desperate to convince the very beautiful Claire to help him avoid his mothers matchmaking. Claire is determined to enjoy her vacation. When Claire gives in to help Miller for the weekend, she never expected to have fun with the surprisingly kind, loving, and swoony man who put her before everything. Miller knew Claire was smart, but he was seduced by how in tune and protective she was with him. When they agree to a casual, no strings weekend, neither wanted it to end. But when work gets in the way and unexpected and shocking events happen, they are torn apart, breaking both their hearts. Years later, they meet again under very different conditions. Miller was a changed man thanks to Claire, and now he needed to break down her walls, to earn her forgiveness and trust. He is determined to prove to her that they are meant to be together, forever. Burgoa took Miller and Claire on a very unexpected journey that was so engaging, fun, and sexy. I loved Claire's strength, and sass, and Miller was so kind, patient, and swoony, and their chemistry leaped right off the page! I really loved their family who were all so loving, and supportive, and added some of the most hilarious moments!
This is a wonderful, witty, and steamy story was made even better by the wonderfully talented narrators, Teddy Hamilton, and Stephanie Németh-Parker. Their easy delivery and inflections make me feel like I am right there with them, getting totally lost in the realism of their storytelling. They really brought out the push/pull between both Miller and Claire, and allowed us to experience their strengths and vulnerabilities, and their sexual tension was palpable! I loved everything about this heartfelt, charming and sexy romance!

Amazing!

The combination of the story and the narrators really makes this story amazing! Claire and Miller are fire together and the narrators really did them justice by bringing them to life. There are several tropes at play here that balance out the story with the sweet, sexy, and funny.

Freedom to choose

Loved the narration, Teddy and Stephanie brought the characters to life. Dual narration is a favorite of mine. Falling in love too quickly, followed by poor communication seemed to be the end of the story, but it was just the beginning. One of the best parts of Something Like Hate is how long the main characters were given to find their way to their happy ever after.
