Love on the Brain
Love on the Brain | Ali Hazelwood

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 Knigswasser 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 Knigswasser do?

I can tell the miscommunications being set up are going to frustrate me but I am also sure I will tear through this audiobook regardless

Not a pick because I liked some parts hated others. But could relate to overthinker Bee, I think that‘s why I couldn‘t stop reading it.

Love this book!!! The plot was good. I love the idea of women being supported in the science field. I rated this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

I liked it but it wasn't my favorite. I thought the story was missing something. I was a little bit bored. I loved Levi but didn't care about the other characters .

I'm quite disappointed with this one. I loved The Love Hypothesis, but this didn't deliver the charm.
I found Bee incredibly irritating. The amount of times she mentions Marie Curie annoyed me but nowhere near as much as how she rambled on about veganism and every food was "vegan *insert any food item ever here*" we get it. Bore off.
Levi was cute, but he seemed to be a complete copy of Adam from TLH.
I couldn't decide between a so-so and a pan.

I think I liked this better than Love, Theoretically but I think I just liked the heroine a bit more? After reading two of Hazelwood‘s books in a row the male characters are SO similar and not fleshed out enough it left me wanting. But I think I like Levi better than Jack?? Also is it said like “levy” or like the jeans? Someone tell me!

julesG I think the narrator of the audiobook pronounced the E like in "me" and the Y like in "my" 8mo
SupiciouslySmall Ah thank you!! So the jeans it is! 7mo

A quick romcom for a break. The neuroscience bits were very interesting, thus “pick”. The banter was ok. Other than that it was pretty much just like any other book by this author that I‘ve read, even down to character‘s physiques and turn of events🥱. Mature content. But it was a quick read, and now I can hopefully settle on my next book.

Book 2 in the Love Hypothesis series. This book is completely independent from the first one. Enemies to lovers romance book. The field of neuroscience is very dear to my heart so I loved all the references and chapter titles. The misunderstandings between Bee and Levi were a bit frustrating at times but overall I enjoyed the book.

This was cute. I found myself rolling my eyes with some interactions between Bee and Levi, but that's OK. The story was good enough to keep me invested. I don't read much romance, but I enjoyed this one and also enjoyed the love hypothesis. I might check more of her work soon.

The Love Hypothesis was much better, but if you are looking for something similar this is it! The end was pretty predictable.

I finished this book late last night. I did enjoy the book, but not as much as the Love Hypothesis. It was still a good book to read. I enjoyed Bee and Levi very much. I will be reading more of this author's work. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars!!!

Bee‘s selected to lead a NASA project along with her nemesis, Levi. While they‘re working together, she realizes that maybe he‘s not her nemesis, and starts to have feelings for him. How will that affect the project?

I really enjoyed this one. Levi‘s character as the love interest was perfect. Him and his chemistry with Bee was just beautifully written. The plot wasn‘t like any other I‘ve read. I just wish there was more diversity in race.

Seriously soooooo good! Highly recommend both. And on the topic of recommendations, I am obsessed with my Bookworm Life Planner from Peanut Butter Taco 😍 it‘s adding in so much fun to my book tracking for the year!

I loved The Love Hypothesis, but this was horrible. The characters were so annoying and the plot was absolutely ridiculous. Bee is supposedly the best neurosciencist in her field, but somehow no one wants to work with her and her university is threatening to fire/replace her? And Levi is working on innovative projects at NASA, but can't be in the same room as a girl he thinks is cute? Don't even get me started on the sabotage at NASA. Ridiculous!

With every work of this author I‘m reminded there are certain things you can‘t “unnotice”, like her size difference fetish 🙈 It gives all the smut across her books a same-ish feel (no matter how she tries to vary it), but otherwise, the story was engaging, and the writing style was fun. Then the MC—who started likable—devolved into a bit of an asshole, which lowered my enjoyment 😞 Plus, I knew who the villain was the moment they walked in 😕 3/5

#novelnovember #readathon after a short break from Litsy (ok, a long one - 4 years) I decided to see what‘s up again. A great day to come back as I see this fun short readathon happening! I don‘t have a plan per se because I read what I feel like reading so never plan ahead. I started this one today. It‘s my second by her. I‘ve already figured out what I‘m sure is supposed to a big surprise so we‘ll see if the ride is enjoyable.
