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.

    This book had me kicking my feet like a schoolgirl! I could not put it down. It’s been a while since I’ve read for fun and I feel this brought back that joy.
  • Nice romance in the science scene

    I liked the setting and characters of the story. A pretend relationship turned to a real one was the reason why I read this novel. But one thing I didn’t like was their first love making felt awkward and complicated with talk. Definitely not like other romance novel scenes.
  • Absolutely wonderful

    Don’t get me wrong- This is a amazing book. Although I guess I should say if you’re a kid, Maybe wait a bit to read this? It’s a great read otherwise and I think the characters are great!

    I’m a simple girl. I like a little rom com that has me glued to my iPad like a hydrogen atom glued to it’s twin. This book was so amazing, it pulls you in and doesn’t let go. It’s funny, sexy, heartwarming, and witty. What more could you ask for? The answer is nothing.
  • Amo todo
