This was such a cute story! I loved it so much!

I needed a palate cleanser after reading Lazarus by Lars Kepler, and this was absolute perfection!

The characters were loveable, the plot excellent, the character development superb! I was hooked from the beginning, I ended up reading this book in two days!  

I kept smiling at myself while reading this, it was embarrassing! But I adored it so much! However, it took a while for the story to progress to the good parts…

The ending was great! I wish this was a series and I could get my Adam & Olive fix in the future! Ali Hazelwood also wrote Chapter 16 – Adam’s POV. You must go and read that as well!

The only thing I hated about this book was how Olive put herself down so much! I just wanted her to be confident and not let anyone tell her otherwise! I understand though that was part of her character development in this story.

I really relished every moment of this book! Go read it now!


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.
