About the Book

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

A commitment-phobe and a hopeless romantic clash over and over again—until heartbreak and unexpected chemistry bring them together in this clever enemies-to-friends-to-lovers debut romance.

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

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.

Praise for You, Again

“Fresh, witty, and utterly romantic, this is the deliciously offbeat modern reimagining of When Harry Met Sally I never knew I needed. Kate Goldbeck is an absolute star!”—Ali Hazelwood, New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis

You, Again is a knockout. Ari and Josh are my favorite type of couple—funny, flawed, and complicated, with prickly exteriors hiding tender hearts. I’ll be first in line for anything Kate Goldbeck writes from now on.”—Ava Wilder, author of How to Fake It in Hollywood and Will They or Won’t They

You, Again reads like a modern rom-com classic in the making, and Kate Goldbeck is my newest auto-buy author—what a voice! I’ve never read anything like it. This book is raw and sexy and radically vulnerable, and I’m already desperately missing Ari and Josh.”—Rachel Lynn Solomon, New York Times bestselling author of Weather Girl and The Ex Talk

“Equal parts a studied homage and decisively modern, Kate Goldbeck debuts with a masterclass in banter. This is a luxurious contemporary romance to savor. Every character is as sexy as they are gloriously messy. I’m officially a fan and can’t wait to see what Kate does next!”—Rosie Danan, author of The Roommate

“Not your average romantic comedy. Ari and Josh’s love story is raw, chaotic, unconventional, very funny, and very sexy. An edgy, modern, slow-burn love story, with nipple piercings.”—Georgia Clark, author of It Had to Be You
