ABOUT THE BOOK: From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com that you do not want to miss. Bee Königswasser and Levi Ward are scientists and nemeses forced to work together on a project for NASA. The results are filled with the steamiest tension and the most explosive chemistry. Ali Hazelwood has outdone herself.
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 - 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. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school - archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.
But when her equipment starts to go missing and the staff ignore her, Bee could swear she sees Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas... devouring her with those eyes. 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?
“You were always in my head. And I could never get you out.”
Love on the Brain is Ali Hazelwood’s newest novel and it was one of my most anticipated reads this summer. I was so excited to read it and I’m happy to say I enjoyed it.
Bee is a woman in STEM who is passionate about other women in STEM. She’s going to work on an exciting new project with NASA and is thrilled. Until she realized she is co-leading the project with her college nemesis, Levi Ward. Levi never seemed to like Bee and she doesn’t know why, but she’s not going to let it dull her spark. She’s too thrilled to do this!
Levi is the best thing about this book. The absolute best. I couldn’t have loved him more. True MVP, top tier book boy status. Who doesn’t love a grumpy hero who has had it bad for the heroine for so long. The LONGING in this book. It was my favorite thing. I also loved how Levi stood up for Bee and the other communication they had (though was completely unsurprising to me) was fantastic and sweet.
‘The Love Hypothesis’ was one of my favorite books last year, and while I liked this one in a lot of ways, it didn’t give me those love feels like that one did. Though it had one of the most amazing heroes, it was a bit predictable and felt disjointed to me at times. It could be that I don’t 100% understand all the science talk, but usually I’m fine with that. This was not a bad book at all, a 4 star rating is still great, I think I just expected it to be a new favorite and it wasn’t.
If you’re looking for a grumpy hero that deep down is a softy, a book with pining (sigh) and if you enjoy good banter and a You’ve Got Mail plot, pick this one up! I think so many will love this book and it had a lot of fun times!
