Love on the Brain: From the bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis
About this deal
Not only that, but before that, there was your traditional miscommunication trope added just to create unnecessary emotion and conflict in the story that could have easily been solved if Bee allowed Levi to show her he was serious. When Ali is not at work, she can be found running, crocheting, eating cake pops, or watching sci-fi movies with her two feline overlords (and her slightly-less-feline husband). I bring that up because my thoughts here are going to be undeniably ranty and I want to re-establish the fact that I have not been, like, hate-reading Ali Hazelwood from the start.
I'll continue to read books and novellas by this author, but I seriously SERIOUSLY hope she tries something new with her heroines. Get the three irresistible short stories, Under One Roof, Stuck With You and Below Zero together in one book for the first time, with an exclusive extra chapter. Unlike The Love Hypothesis, I felt like Bee’s support system did not feel forced, annoying, or frustrating.I don't want to be lectured about gender stereotypes and oppression and misogyny while reading a romance novel. Yet, there is no further detail on this aspect, which is very unfortunate because the author had the opportunity to provide some sort of awareness for an issue that is pretty big around the world. I can appreciate Hazelwood’s passion for the topics she includes in her books and the importance of writing characters who are equally excited about them.
A face attached to a large, solid body—a body that is pinning me to the wall, a body made of a broad chest and two thighs that could moonlight as redwoods. I've loved both of her full-length novels (I'm a little iffier on her novellas, but I'm generally not a fan of novellas). From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis--with explosive results.Y adoré que fueran tan tontitos como para no darse cuenta de que estaban hablando el uno con el otro! it’s the same shit but different font and you’d think i’d be sick of this shit at this point but i completely devoured this book. Me gustó mucho Love on the Brain, mi problema fue que sentí que estaba leyendo The Love Hypothesis otra vez, ¡porque es EXACTAMENTE LO MISMO! Ali Hazelwood books cannot function for more than two consecutive paragraphs without inserting both. With regards to Bee, she thought about poisoning, stabbing, drowning, impaling, and biting Levi at various points.
Told exclusively from the heroine's point of view, one of my favorite parts was intensely analyzing the hero's every thought and action.But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school-archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.
Now, her equipment is missing, the staff is ignoring her, and Bee finds her floundering career in somewhat of a pickle. The whole book is low angst but friction-filled, with enemies to lovers vibes and tons of sexual tension. Every interaction they have is just wonderful, from witty banter to swoony tender moments, this couple is everything I want in a rom-com couple. It felt like everything was turned up a notch - the personality, the science, the chemistry, the pop culture references. This is absolutely sweetest, quirkiest, smartest, geekiest, sexiest and STEMinest romance I’ve ever read!
She liked talking to him for sure, but there was no "Do I like Levi or do I like this internet friend?
