The Love Hypothesis

Author: Ali Hazelwood

Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Fiction, Adult,


Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length: 352 pages

So, this is my new favorite book. I was immediately hooked by the first page. I fell in love with Adam Carlsen and Olive. I could read this book for the rest of my life and I would not be upset. It is witty, adorable, funny, a little spicy, and angering. You get to watch Adam and Olive's relationship grow, and yes you get frustrated with Anh and other characters. But, this book is worth it. I recommend putting down your phone, computer, or tablet right now, going to your closest bookstore and buying it right this very second. It made me squeal, laugh, cry, slap my hand over my mouth, you name it, I did it while reading this book. Ali Hazelwood is a genius!


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.
