I don’t want to alarm all of you, but it’s been a year and half since The Hating Game ruined us for all contemporary romance novels ever. We’ve been sitting on our hands, ever so patiently since, watching author Sally Thorne tweet about horses and eating and sleeping and things that are definitely not … writing our next favorite novel.
But just this week, she turned a corner and gave us some super good news.
Really excited to share that my next book will be titled ’99 Percent Mine’ and it is now available for preorder on Amazon and iBooks! As soon as I thought of this title, I got goosebumps and happy shivers <3

It’s actually happening. Sally is bringing us something new this year, and it has a title, and she is excited about it, so we are too. More news from her twitter feed tells us that she’s really happy with the way that things are going. You guys, IT IS GOING TO BE SO GOOD.
Sally also did a recent Facebook Live where she got her makeup done, Lucy Hutton style, and basically was just the cutest while answering fan questions. During said video, she answered the ubiquitous author question, “Who would you cast in the movie version of The Hating Game?”
Look, I love Sally. I’ve loved her since she was writing Twilight fanfiction that none of us could stop talking about. But the correct answer to the question – “Who should play Joshua Templeman?” is NEVER EVER … Liam Hemsworth.
Liam Hemsworth is not Joshua Templeman. He’s too pedestrian. He’s too basic. He’s too bro. Joshua is cunning, thoughtful, witty and chiseled. Liam Hemsworth isn’t even the 3rd best Hemsworth brother.
No, no, no, no, no.
Joshua Templeman is … Kevin Love for Banana Republic.
I don’t know anything about Kevin Love, except last summer I was at a beach house with friends and the men were watching a basketball tournament and he was playing and suddenly I was riveted. Kevin Love is a professional basketball player and a total dreamboat.
Also, his face is Joshua Templeman’s.
Don’t believe me? Are you blind? Ok, then, let me prove it to you.
Here is Joshua starring down Fat Little Dick for looking at your chest again.
Here is Joshua’s First Day at B&G Employee Badge Photo that Lucy relentlessly mocks.*
*this should have been in the book, Sally. I’ll leave it for the sequel you are writing where Lucy and Josh mock each other as foreplay for 50,000 words
Here is Joshua watching Lucy when Julie calls to ask for an extension.
JOSH JOSH JOSH JOSH JOSH JOSH JOSH
Josh is waiting for you to join him on the couch (inexplicably with a basketball).
Josh actually smiling at the corporate retreat basketball game.
Josh in the mirrors of the office. This is too much, Josh.
ALL JUST TOO MUCH JOSH.
That hoodie looks familiar. Like he just zipped it all the way up to keep us from seeing his pectoral girdle. *shakes fist at sky* JOSH!
So … Sally. Hi. I love your book. I love Joshua Templeman. Joshua Templeman IS Love. Joshua Templeman is KEVIN LOVE. See how that works?
PS: I’m excited about 99 Percent Mine. (Guys … go preorder it now! It’s out in October!)
