SO F*CKING CUTE. This is exactly what it claims to be, The Unhoneymooners meets The Hating Game. A hate to love romance where they are both up for the same promotion (much like The Hating Game) and they are forced to go on a company cruise together (which feels similar to the honeymoon situation in Unhoneymooners). Henley and Graeme have the best banter, the best chemistry, I was literally giddy the entire time I was reading this and smiling like an idiot. Graeme is my ideal male love inter ...more
When I saw this book was compared to 'The Unhoneymooners' and 'The Hating Game' I was a little nervous. I mean. those are some big shoes to fill. After reading, I've got to say... it's accurate. If The Hating Game (my favorite enemies to lovers romance) and The Unhoneymooners had a love child, Shipped would be it! It was an exceptional enemies to lovers/work place romance that had that destination aspect.
Henley has never met Graeme in person, but she knows she can't stand him. And ...more
And let’s raise our glasses (actually I already finished another bottle during my read: sorry, I got my thirsty when I get excited!) to those brilliant characters: Henley and Graeme - even though name choices are a little strange, Henley is shining like a rock star and Graeme is deliciously charming to consume with marshmallow and dark chocolate during ...more
Still, it was a generally good read.

This had me at Unhoneymooners and The Hating Game. And oh baby, did it deliver!!! Henley is intelligent, ambitious, and a work-a-holic. Hard work must pay off because she’s up for a promotion at work. Bad news is that she’s competing with her nemesis, Graeme, for the position.
Two weeks. Galápagos. Cruise. Yes, that’s right. Henley will have to spend two weeks on a cruise with the man she wants to take down and beat. Only problem is, is that he’s much different tha ...more
I haven't read The Hating Game, well I tried but I couldn't pass more than 5 chapters because I think all the characters are pretty childish for my own taste so I stopped. I never read The Unhoneymooners or even try to but maybe in the future I will since this book is marketed as “The Hating Games” meets “The Unhoney ...more
Shipped is a delightful story of two characters that are vying for the same position within their company. Yup, it's an office roman ...more
Not since ‘You Deserve Each Other’ did any book ever come to par with ‘The Hating Game’ and when the blurb of ‘Shipped’ was released, I was like YAAAAAAAAAAAAAS! This might be the next big thing but… yes there is a but—it didn’t live up to the hype and now all the hopes and dreams I had had for this love child is now shattered and blown to smithereens.
Sure, it’s justifiable as to why this book is marketed for fans of ‘The Unhoneymooners’ by Christina Lauren and ‘The Hating Game’ ...more
Between MBA classes and working as a full time marketing manager, Henley Evans rarely takes time for herself. But when she's put up for a promotion, she feels as if all her work has been worth it. The only problem? To get the promotion she has to go on a cruise with Graeme Crawford-Collins, the bane of her work existence, and her direct competitor.
This book was lovely to read. It had a unique setting, touched on larger issues of conservation and climate change, and had some great tension fi ...more
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this arc in exchange for an honest review. Shipped had all the remnants of an amazing contemporary romance similar to the Unhoneymooners. Two rivals vying for the same promotion must go on a company cruise with one another in order to come up with a proposal that will grant them the job. Only problem is they get along better than they thought they would.
The first thing that really stood out to me was that the content had clearly b ...more
I requested this because when a book compares itself to The Hating Game, I have to. Shipped does nothing to hide the influence of the former book, given the similar tropes, but even beyond that it's so refreshing in other ways and both characters are so ADORABLE that I loved it more than I thought I would.
Henley Evans wants nothing more than to feel successful in her life, to earn a spot in an executive's board meeting and belong there on her own merit. W ...more
The thing that grabbed my attention initially about this book was it being considered a mash-up of The Unhoneymooners and The Hating Game: two of my all time favorite romances. Let me just say... it was a PERFECT combo of those two. This book is now added to my all time favs romance list!
This had EVERYTHING. It had hate to love, a fun summer setting, all kinds of sexual tension, an AMAZING hero, and a badass heroine. I was seriously hooked and in love from that very first chapter. T ...more
This novel is billed as “The Hating Game” meets the “Unhoneymooners” which are two of my favorite romances. That billing is correct, jut the two other books are better. I liked this one well enough and had a fun time reading it, but the plot and characters were not developed well enough for me. I think another round of editing and some fine tuning of the characterization could have helped this novel in a big way. Which since I read an ARC could have been updated in the final copy.

Right away, we start with Henley and her work atmosphere. We get to know more about her as she's navigating her life at 28, working full-time, and trying to earn her MBA. I liked knowing more about her and her relationship with her sister and co-workers. However, when it comes to the rom ...more

Shipped is marketed as the love child of The Hating Game and The Unhoneymooners, two of my favourite romance novels. As soon as I saw the titles and the synopsis, I never clicked the ‘Request’ button so fast and was delighted upon seeing that my request was approved. There and then, I downloaded the ARC and began to vorac ...more
