The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood is an adult fiction, rom-com.
Olive Smith, is a third-year Ph.D. candidate with a best friend who is obsessed with meddling in Olive's love life. To get Ahn off her back, Olive does what any other sleep deprived, inexperienced people-pleaser would do, she panics and kisses the first person she sees outside of the lab. Only, that person happens to be Professor Adam Carlsen, known hard-ass and ballbuster, who just happens to be built like an adonis. And Olive keeps digging herself in deeper when she blurts out that they are dating. What's more surprising is that Adam decides to go along with the ruse for his benefit as well.
As all rom-coms go, what turns out as a mutually beneficial plan blows up in smoke. What will happen when "real" feelings get involved? Will Olive be willing to put her own heart "under a microscope" or will all systems fail?
^that attempt at wit, totally doesn't work, but I am keeping it :-)
This was such a cute read. So light and with just the right amount of steam, humor and awkwardness. I truly loved both Olive and Adam's characters; I only wish we got a few more chapters from Adam's perspective. I totally blew through this book and listened to it almost non-stop for three days. It was the right read, at the right time for me.
That being said, I don't have a whole ton to say about it. Hot, awkward scientists. Quirky girls with few filters. What's not to love. This one gets five star from me.
That's all for now!
