An Instant New York Times Bestseller
A #1 LibraryReads and Indie Next Pick!
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.
Like an avenging, purple-haired Jedi bringing balance to the mansplained universe, Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project—a literal dream come true after years scraping by on the crumbs of academia—Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.
Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. And sure, he caught her in his powerfully corded arms like a romance novel hero when she accidentally damseled in distress on her first day in the lab. 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. Perhaps it’s her occipital cortex playing tricks on her, but Bee could swear she can see Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas…devouring her with those eyes. And the possibilities have all her neurons firing. But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there’s only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do?
Best Nerdy Book ♥️
POV: Bee only
Trope: Enemies to lovers (kinda)
This story was one of her best yet! I absolutely loved The Love Hypothesis and this book definitely has the name nerd type of love. I adored that Bee wasn’t the typical lab woman some picture, she has the soft rock vibe about her that just makes you love everything about her.
Unlike The Love Hypothesis you don’t get Levi’s POV and it kind of makes me sad cause I would have loved to hear his side of things.
As two very smart and important people it was great to see how they handled issues as adults which seems to be lost in some writings. If you want another spicy Love Hypothesis without the teacher student dynamic this is it! Everything was perfect even the parts about Texas and random facts.
The narrator was a 10/10 gave the story depth when it was needed. And gave me the same reactions I would get from reading the book myself.
So cute 10/10
So cute 10/10
The narrator makes women and men both sound completely unrealistic and terrible. I can’t tell if the book itself is bad or the reader is so terrible it makes me not want to even finish the book.
