Finally a hyped book that was actually good! I am so scared of them cos hype books usually turn out to suck. But not this one (though wtf tiktok was talking about this one being smutty I do not know).

Olive is one busy woman and then well she needs a pretend boyfriend and her "victim" turns out the be the strict professor everyone is scared of. She is fun, sweet and I liked her.

Adam, well yes he is super grumpy, but also super sweet behind that facade. And him with her, oh I liked it from the start. They were perfect for each other, and the pretend relationship needed to be real!

Awww these two. A sweet book and I loved the stem world, I truly need to read more of her books...all of them!!

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.


  1. So glad you enjoyed it. I had fun with these characters :)

  2. YEA!!!! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It's scary to go into an over-hyped book. I really loved it, and all of her other stories so far have been fabulous.

  3. Oh gosh I think I'd like to read it after your review.

  4. I read this long before it got hyped and loved it. Definitely NOT smutty though lol

    1. Yeah it was so weird but tiktok being all SMUT, and me wtf?

  5. I've been putting this one off b/c I was wary that I'd feel it wasn't as good as other people thought, but I'll get to it eventually.

  6. Ooh, I'm not savvy about romance books, I didn't even know this was hyped.

  7. Yay! I loved this one too! I know what you mean about hyped books though.
