The Love Hypothesis

The Love Hypothesis Summary

The Instant New York Times Bestseller and TikTok Sensation!

As seen on THE VIEW!

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.

exciting and a can't put down down5 star

I really enjoyed this book it had moments that were up and down but still provided a happy ending.. the writer did a wonderful jobs by letting the reader almost assume what's going to happen without it being completely true. I read this book very quickly, and it's a nice light-hearted read to enjoy. also i love adam carlsen55

Only the best olive character. Enjoyed the stem perspective from an intellectual woman. Must admit that I wanted an escape book and this was it. Thoroughly enjoyed the dialogue, thoughts, and conclusion of this read.45
