Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “This gender-swapped When Harry Met Sally retelling is for anyone who craves romance novels with realistic and flawed characters. Ari and Josh circle each other for years in the kind of delicious, slow-burn tension that only comes from a well-executed enemies-to-friends-to-lovers arc.”—NPR

“Fresh, witty, and utterly romantic.”—Ali Hazelwood, author of The Love Hypothesis


Can they stop hating each other long enough to fall in love?

When Ari and Josh first meet, the wrong kind of sparks fly. They hate each other. Instantly.

A free-spirited, struggling comedian who likes to keep things casual, Ari sublets, takes gigs, and she never sleeps over after hooking up. Born-and-bred Manhattanite Josh has ambitious plans: Take the culinary world by storm, find The One, and make her breakfast in his spotless kitchen. They have absolutely nothing in common . . . except that they happen to be sleeping with the same woman.

Ari and Josh never expect their paths to cross again. But years later, as they’re both reeling from ego-bruising breakups, a chance encounter leads to a surprising connection: friendship. Turns out, spending time with your former nemesis is fun when you’re too sad to hate each other—and too sad for hate sex.

As friends-without-benefits, they find comfort in late-night Netflix binges, swiping through each other’s online dating profiles, and bickering across boroughs. It’s better than romance. Until one night, the unspoken boundaries of their platonic relationship begin to blur. . . .

With sharp observations and sizzling chemistry, You, Again explores the dynamics of co-ed friendship in this sparkling romantic comedy of modern love in all its forms.

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“I adored this boooookkkk!!! When Harry Met Sally is a total comfort movie and has a very special place in my heart. And this was such a fresh take on the idea! I’m sure I could find issues or problems with the book that don’t sit well with me but frankly I simply don’t care nor do I want to try! This had me hooked from page one and squealing like a little girl the whole time. I will say though… I really didn’t like how often the author used the phrase “my mind’s eye”. No I will not elaborate 🤣🤣”

Thinking Face“I have mixed feelings about this book. Maybe I went into it with too high expectations of it being a reimagining of When Harry Met Sally, a film that I adore! Ari and Josh just annoyed me, their banter wasn’t enjoyable for me. While I can appreciate them both being two flawed individuals that find one another and choose to make a commitment to each other despite those flaws is endearing, but I feel like it was just a mediocre love story.”
