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.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. No payments made between me and the publisher.
I’ve read this book a while back and I’ve been meaning to write a book review but I can’t make myself to. I’m not sure how to express myself on this. The Love Hypothesis is a hype! and all I could say was it was worth it. I end up buying a Book of the Month copy before finishing the other half of the story and I end up reading from the start so I could put the tabs. This book is a fast, enjoyable and funny read. I’d definitely read this again if I got time! And, FYI there’s an Adam POV!
The book is really awesome! I loved every parts of it! But, it’s funny that Olive didn’t realize right away that the guy (Adam) is the guy she already met all those years ago. Olive and Adam is such a perfect match. It’s not everyday you’ll find someone like them, right? It’s fun to see them together. I’d love to read more about them and their love story. Olive is just an overthinker woman and Adam is the guy who put all things together, he’s calm and he understands his assignment well.
Some people thinks the book is too cheesy, or something, but… I think, it’s the kind of book that you’d want to read when you think you need a good romance and a good laugh. This romcom book made me laugh a lot and made me want to read things over and over. I keep telling my friends to read it too! I hope this book gets a book 2 though! It deserves another story with Olive and Adam in it!
