Book Synopsis



The Instant New York Times Bestseller!

As seen on THE VIEW!

A BuzzFeed Best Summer Read of 2021

When a fake relationship between scientists meets the irresistible force of attraction, it throws one woman's carefully calculated theories on love into chaos.

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.

About the Author



Ali Hazelwood is the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis, as well as the writer of peer-reviewed articles about brain science, in which no one makes out and the ever after is not always happy. Originally from Italy, she lived in Germany and Japan before moving to the U.S. to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience. She recently became a professor, which absolutely terrifies her. When Ali is not at work, she can be found running, eating cake pops, or watching sci-fi movies with her two feline overlords (and her slightly-less-feline husband).

Besides the fact I'm a hopeful (hopeless) romantic, this book touches on the topic of Pancreatic Cancer, the cance that took my sister at the age of 14. I know this book is a book of fiction but I am hopeful that some day we will find a cure for that type of cancer!

It’s a no for me... I bought this book based on good reviews and it was soooo slow! And way too predictable. I tried to fall in love with the characters but olive was slightly annoying and immature for her to be 26.... and an undergrad at Stanford. As for Adam.. I wish there was more to him than just “dark hair and big muscles”. I really tried to give it the benefit of the doubt I made it half way through and I couldn’t make myself want to even finish the book. The whole book reminded me of a early 2000’s Disney channel movie starring Lizzy McGuire... I’m 27 maybe I’m too old for this book. After reading Colleen Hoover and sally Thorne, this book was simply boring. I will be returning this ASAP.
