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.

    My friend and I love this book and we can’t stop talking about it. I think we have read it at least five times each. We love Adam Carlsen and the humor in the book. Can only say good thing about this book. And maybe I like it more because of my friend but I promise it is a good book if you love romances

    A really cute and funny love story. No surprises and at times a bit slow in the story. But I definitely enjoyed it a and a perfectly feel good story. One would have a heart of stone to not fall a bit for Adam.... Or feel the heat in a specific chapter.

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! There were times when I was frustrated with Olive but 99% of the time I was screaming(for joy), happy, crying, FREAKING OUT. But mostly swooning over Adam Carlsen. Her writing was so relatable and I literally didn’t want to put the book down but at the same time was forcing myself to put the book down so that it wouldn’t end so quickly. LOVE LOVE LOVED! Will recommend to all my friends. I need more!

    I’ve only ever heard good things about this book, so… am I missing something here?? I forced myself to keep going even though I was bored throughout the entire story, holding onto a thin thread of hope thar it would get better. And it didn’t. The characters were so bland; I couldn’t care less about any of them. The storyline was so nothing. Every “big event” that happened was so anticlimactic and blown past so quickly. This didn’t feel like a romance one bit. I really wanted to love this book.
