The Love Hypothesis


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.

Good rom com

I read this book in a day and really enjoyed it, it wasn’t mind blowing writing but it’s a fun read that you can reread and always enjoy, it does have a few moments I thought were cringy but what romcom doesn’t have the occasional cringy moment

a slow burn rom-com the will leave you wanting more after every chapter.

A beautiful book about an unlikely romance, its sunshine girl meets grumpy half. Both characters struggle and blossom through the journey of fake dating with a fresh take on life in Academia and the adversity it brings.
