"This is a delight." —Publishers WeeklyThis arrangement is either exactly what they needor a total disasterOscar 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…The Love StudyBook 1: The Love StudyBook 2: The Hate ProjectBook 3: The Life RevampCarina Adores is home to modern, romantic love stories where LGBTQ+ characters find their happily-ever-afters.A new Carina Adores title is available each month:The Hideaway Inn by Philip William StoverThe Girl Next Door by Chelsea M.

About the Author
Kris Ripper lives in the great state of California and zir pronouns are ze/zir. Kris shares a converted garage with a kid, can do two pull-ups in a row, and can write backwards. (No, really.) Ze has been writing fiction since ze learned how to write, and boring zir stuffed animals with stories long before that.
