About this deal

Bee has a thing about not getting pets or forming meaningful romantic relationships because all these bonds will end up breaking her heart one way or another. And then after the halfway mark, suddenly she adores him and they’ve had all these cute and not totally contrived moments together and they’re 69’ing three bloody times. Not-Main-Love-Interest asks her out BUT SHE OBVIOUSLY DOESN’T SEE EVEN ONE OF THE VAST NUMBER OF BLUSHES AND FLUSHES AND SWALLOWS AND PANIC MOMENTS THAT LEVI HAS IN HER PRESENCE NO SHE DOES NOT. This is absolutely sweetest, quirkiest, smartest, geekiest, sexiest and STEMinest romance I’ve ever read!

I find her writing style to be supremely entertaining and her focus on science and women in STEM to be refreshing. While some of her dialogue sometimes felt forced (as if she had to act like someone her age), she still had a lot of moments where she was realistic, funny, and a supportive friend.

Love on the Brain follows Bee, a neuroscientist who lives through asking “What would Marie Curie Do,” has just gotten the opportunity to work on a new collaborative project with NASA, a literal dream.

I loved trying to figure out our hero's thoughts and feelings, and I loved that it has a similar vibe to The Love Hypothesis (both standalones) while also feeling distinct and original. When Ali is not at work, she can be found running, crocheting, eating cake pops, or watching sci-fi movies with her two feline overlords (and her slightly-less-feline husband).this book it way more sexier than The Love Hypothesis and i wasn’t fully expecting that and i’m not fucking complaining.

that was such a minus point in TLH for me and Ali is repeating the same mistake again that Levi is confessing his love for Bee, but Bee is only thinking it when she says she loves Levi in the epilogue.But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school - archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away. I found the pacing of the book perfect, I was pulled right in from the beginning and I didn’t put this down until I read the very last word. I won’t pretend that these characteristics are unique to Hazelwood’s romances, nor were they entirely exempt from her previous works. Sometimes it felt like I was reading multiple diary entries Bee wrote, which felt very in character because of her few immature tendencies.

En definitiva, creo que me declaro una fan incondicional de las historias de Ali Hazelwood y, como necesito más en mi vida, creo que voy a leer muy pronto las tres novellas que sacó exclusivamente en ebook y audiolibro porque quiero romance en vena en este mismo segundo. Originally from Italy, she lived in Germany and Japan before moving to the US to pursue a PhD in neuroscience. If I had a nickel for every time one of Ali’s protagonists decided to operate based solely on presumed slights and imagined beef, I’d have 25 cents—which isn’t a lot, but it’s weird that it has happened five times. The bright, bubbly woman is now a little more closed off, though she's incredibly excited about the career opportunity that has come her way.I'll continue to read books and novellas by this author, but I seriously SERIOUSLY hope she tries something new with her heroines.
