I've hated Chase Mathews from the first moment I saw him.
He's arrogant, cocky, and far too obnoxious for anyone to deal with.
But our best friends are married, so escaping him isn't exactly easy.
Did I mention he's also my new roommate?
You see, life hasn't exactly gone to plan recently, and I'm out of options.
But just because I'm stuck with him doesn't mean I have

    “I always thought something would bring me to my knees, I just never thought it would be you, Georgia. But man, am I sure glad it was.”

    This was my first book by Scarlett Hooper, and I think I couldn’t have loved it more. It was an easy and fun read, with a bit of humor.
    The male protagonist, Chase, used to be a NHL star until an injury made him sidelined. He is cocky and spoiled, but also funny and a good friend. And Georgia, she’s what Chase would describe as a “spoiled princess”, wh

    This book is amazing. It is the story of Chase and Georgia. If you have read Scarlett Hopper's other books, you will recognize these two. If you haven't, this can be read as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the other ones first as it will spoil some for you.
    Chase is a spoiled, cocky, NHL star until injury has him sidelined and lost. While Georgia is what Chase would describe as a spoiled princess until her father's mistake turns her life upside down. Even though their lives are so di

    From the moment they first met Georgia and Chase disliked one another, but there also this tiny niggling feeling of attraction too, that neither would openly admit to. Chase sees Georgia as a spoiled princess with high expectations that he can never measure up to... so why try right? And Georgia sees Chase as an arrogant athlete that thoroughly enjoys the player lifestyle a little too much. But what if their wrong about one another? What if their first impressions were a case of mistaken identit ...more
    Right off the bat, my curiosity was piqued with the implications in the synopsis including my favorite trope, enemies-to-lovers & another trope I’m partial to, forced proximity.

    In its current state, it was kinda cute. I liked SH’s starting concepts in Misery Loves Company. Starting with - 1. beginning with bickering enemies; a cocky player(Chase) & the rich little princess(Georgia) who happen to be lifelong besties with happily married with a baby(whose godparents are said player & princess aka

    Scarlett Hopper's books are always easy, fun reads with a bit of humor and unexpected twists.
    Chase, hot, cocky hockey player and Georgia the gorgeous rich little princess hate each other and go out of their way to make each other's life miserable. They both come up against unexpected life changes which make them both more irritable. Their mutual friends are leaving and both Chase and Georgia will be house sitting, what could possibly go wrong. There is a fine line between hate and love and these

    Misery Loves Company is a delightful forced proximity, enemies to lovers romance! It is my first book by this author and it most definitely will not be my last as I enjoyed this engaging story with its likable and relatable characters.

    Chase is your cocksure hockey player and Georgia is a rich girl with a vibrant personality. Their worlds are unexpectedly turned upside down and these two opposites find themselves as reluctant roommates. The author does a remarkable job at illustrating just how m

    Thanks to netgalley for the copy of this.

    I enjoyed this book, I would have liked a bit more hockey and for the playlist at the beginning of the book to have relevance, but that's just personal preference.

    Love a enemies to lovers arc: this one was good in the fact that both main characters faced difficult issues which brought them together. If I was to make any criticism I would have liked a bit more exploration into relationships with other characters but overall this book was enjoyable.

    Can't wait for readers to read this enemies-to-lovers' story.

    Misery Loves Company is a fun, enemies-to-lovers contemporary romance. It also has a bit of close proximity that turns these enemies into really sweet friends.

    Chase is a NHL hockey player and at the beginning of the story is injured during a game and won’t be able to professionally play again. Georgia recently lost her job, apartment, and fancy lifestyle after her dad’s business (where she also works) gets bought out. Georgia & Chase are both dealing with changes in their life when they find the

    I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange of a honest review.

    This is an enemies-to-lovers story. Chase and Georgia do not get along at all at the beginning, and how. Forced to share living spaces due to circumstances, they get to know each other and realise that the image they had of each other is not exactly correct.
    Although I felt that the story did not flow smoothly at times, I had a fun time reading it, and it was peppered with surprisingly poignant moments.

    Another winner from Scarlett Hopper! This book has all the good book magic I’ve come to know and love from this author!

    This enemies to friends to lovers is one of my favourite of hers to date. I think what makes this book extra wonderful is the friendship that ensues. The beginning is all the dislike/enemies part, and is quite funny. Through this, Georgia and Chase realize they actually kinda en

    Georgia and Chase have not had the most amicable relationship despite their shared friends. Yet, love is very close to hate, and beneath their dislike, simmers a strong attraction. Chase believes that Georgia is spoiled, and she feels that he is filled with self-importance. Yet when they find themselves house-sitting for their friends, their close proximity means that they have to show their true selves. The difficulties that both Chase and Georgia experience, seem to become far easier to face w ...more

    This is Chase and Georgia’s journey. Chase is an NHL star who is feeling lost after being side-lined due to an injury, and when Georgia’s life is tilted on its axles, their mutual best friends arrange for them to stay in the same house for a month. These two are total opposites and they are like petrol and a match, totally combustible. Much to their surprise the longer they are roommates, they move on from enemies to become friends. This is a well written story which is a fun and sweet read, wit ...more

    This was a new-to-me author and I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a standalone, but we got to see Ash and Logan from an earlier book Missed Encounters. They are friends with Georgia and Chase who were the main characters in Misery Loves Company. It was so entertaining, that I reached the end before I knew it. The enemies to lover troupe was certainly illustrated with all of the hilarious pranks Chase and Georgia played on each other and all their witty banter.

    This started horribly. The 2 main characters are absolute brats and awful, spoiled individuals. It went on for chapters and I could not care about their HEAs. The characters eventually decide to put down their hatred for each other and enjoy each other's company. Uh, what?! After that, the characters put down their weapons and made nice. Problem for me is, this started so bad and then went to blah (an upgrade) but still not worth my time. ...more
