"Loathe at First Sight bursts with humor, heart, and great energy. I loved it! Park is a hilarious new voice in women's fiction." -- Helen Hoang, author of The Kiss Quotient "Hilarious and poignant, Park's debut sparkles as a great addition to the new voices of the rom com renaissance." -- Roselle Lim, author of Natalie Tan's Book of Luck and Fortune "Park gives us the story that only she could create. It's hilarious, smart, and the rom-com we need!" -- Alexa Martin, ALA Award-winning author of Intercepted "Park has created a wholly original, smart, fierce heroine (with a hilarious inner voice) who takes on an industry hell-bent on underestimating her...Just like the "entertaining, fresh, snarky" video game she conjures in her novel, Suzanne Park has written a fast and fun debut, putting females in the lead." -- Amy Poeppel, author of Musical Chairs and Small Admissions "A genuinely funny and charismatic heroine shines in Loathe At First Sight, the delightful and eye-opening debut adult novel by Suzanne Park. Park - a former stand-up comedian - negotiates her energized plot masterfully... a multi-layered happy-ever-after." -- NPR "A smart, funny workplace romance set in the world of video game design." -- Popsugar "[A] punchy adult debut set in the world of video game design. Park makes tough topics go down easy by couching them in wry humor and lighthearted romance, and her fierce, snarky heroine is irresistible. This smart rom-com is a winner." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Park's first book for adults is a funny and feminist geek novel... Readers into both gaming and women's fiction will scramble for this fast-paced charmer." -- Booklist "Melody's characterization and voice shine throughout. Smart, punchy, and memorable." -- Library Journal.
