About the Book

When Oscar finds a new job helping Jack clean out his deceased grandmother's house, the two attempt a frenemies-with-benefits situation only for things to take a turn.

Book Synopsis

"This is a delight." --Publishers Weekly

This arrangement is either exactly what they need--or a total disaster

Oscar is a grouch.

That's a well-established fact among his tight-knit friend group, and they love him anyway.

Jack is an ass.

Jack, who's always ready with a sly insult, who can't have a conversation without arguing, and who Oscar may or may not have hooked up with on a strict no-commitment, one-time-only basis. Even if it was extremely hot.

Together, they're a bickering, combative mess.

When Oscar is fired (answering phones is not for the anxiety-ridden), he somehow ends up working for Jack. Maybe while cleaning out Jack's grandmother's house they can stop fighting long enough to turn a one-night stand into a frenemies-with-benefits situation.

The house is an archaeological dig of love and dysfunction, and while Oscar thought he was prepared, he wasn't. It's impossible to delve so deeply into someone's past without coming to understand them at least a little, but Oscar has boundaries for a reason--even if sometimes Jack makes him want to break them all down.

After all, hating Jack is less of a risk than loving him...

Review Quotes

"A tender but still thrilling romance. This is a delight" -- Publishers Weekly

A "boldly sensual M/M love story that compassionately yet honestly incorporates issues such as mental health and body image into a romance that also proudly extols the values of inclusivity, family, and friendship." --Booklist

"While The Hate Project depicts a lot of struggle, including a fair and realistic amount of backsliding, it also showcases lovely moments of hope, steadfastly suggesting that troubles can be overcome with loyal friends." --BookPage
