"This was such a cute and fluffy story. After reading “Love on the Brain”, I was nervous that I wasn’t going to enjoy the story, however, I was wrong. This novel, although the premise was about scientists, it was not oozing scientific terms that someone outside of the field of study would struggle to comprehend. The story does indeed have a slow burn, but I promise the drama and the pulling of the heartstrings happens once you hit the half way mark. This novel was my first “sunshine grumpy trope”, and although the whole entire storyline stems from a single lie.. I had to remind myself this is supposed to be a cheese rom-com, not real life. As soon as I wrapped my mind around this, I was able to enjoy the story and become invested in the characters and their relationships and friendships."
"Yes I totally did get obsessed with it and yes I am one of those that find Adam hot especially in house of gucci younger scene when him and lady gaga first fell in love and boy did I envision him reading this book. Although I will add I don't feel compelled to read any of the others in this series"
"This was a good slow-burn book with lots of representation for women in STEM. I liked the sunshine x grumpy trope but I feel like we never really got to know Adam. That doesn’t make it any less emotional, though. I’m also not a big fan of romance books so that might make me a little biased. Great book nonetheless. "
"I love the way this book is written and the banter between characters. My one complaint is it feels like a miscommunication troupe because neither of them will admit how they feel for almost the entire book. I felt like screaming “just tell them how you feel!”. I get the need to build tension but it’s more tension then I prefer. "
