As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn’t believe in lasting romantic relationships–but her best friend does, and that’s what got her into this situation. Convincing Anh that Olive is dating and well on her way to a happily ever after was always going to take more than hand-wavy Jedi mind tricks: Scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting biologist, Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.
That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot professor–and well-known ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when Stanford’s reigning lab tyrant agrees to keep her charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, putting Olive’s career on the Bunsen burner, Adam surprises her again with his unyielding support and even more unyielding…six-pack abs.
Suddenly their little experiment feels dangerously close to combustion. And Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood Review
This book is all over bookstagram and booktok and after reading it, I can see why it’s so hyped up! This fanfic story about Rey and Kylo Ren (seriously) is really good. If you’re into romance, you’ll love this one. A fake romance between two scientists makes a great story.
Olive is a PhD student who kisses Dr Adam Carlson, just to make her friend think that she is NOT still in love with her ex-boyfriend. Why? Because her friend is really into him. Olive is a good person and wants her friend to be happy, plus she really isn’t into her ex.
Dr Adam Carlson is known as the super blunt and sometimes cruel, Dr who students fear! However, as we learn more about him, we learn he’s the exact opposite of what we thought.
I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a fun read!
