The Love Hypothesis Summary

When a fake relationship between scientists meets the irresistible force of attraction, it throws one woman’s carefully calculated theories on love into chaos.

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.

Ali Hazelwood

Ali Hazelwood is a multi-published author—alas, of peer-reviewed articles about brain science, in which no one makes out and the ever after is not always happy. Originally from Italy, she lived in Germany and Japan before moving to the U.S. to pursue a Ph.D. in neuroscience. She recently became a professor, which absolutely terrifies her. 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).

I devoured this in one day (in-between family gatherings and kids). I couldn’t put it down.

Olive is the best kind of mess. She’s frazzled from her PhD. She’s grieving the loss of her mother to pancreatic cancer (which is fueling her research into easier/cheaper screening methods). She adores her friends and will do anything for them… which is how she ends up kissing Dr Adam Carlson.

Adam is the resident grump/beast – instilling fear into graduate students (but all in the name of scientific excellence, of course). He agrees to a mutually beneficial fake dating relationship with Olive after the whole kissing-incident.

Both Olive and Adam are navigating the challenges and obstacles of academia in their own unique ways – research, funding deficits, grants… i.e. lots of work, questionable returns. But science! Meanwhile juggling their fake-relationship and not at all (!!!) catching feelings.

Did not enjoy this one. Sorry! I know everyone is loving this book but me!


TW: sexual harassment / assault

I could tell at 30% into this book I was not liking it. But I paid for it & everybody seems to love it, I kept reading to see what the hype is about. I should’ve stopped at 30%.

First, it was just so much AWKWARD. Not cute awkward. I am not here to try to relive my awkward teenage first kiss years. So painful. I hate being embarrassed. LOATHE. It is my least favorite feeling next to getting blood drawn. So much second hand embarrassment in this book. I was literally cringing on behalf of Olive.

Second, realizing about myself that I am easily super annoyed with insecure & clueless females. 100% over it. I can’t get past the inner monologue of these heroines.

Third, this book would have been better without the sex scene. I said what I said.

How did two awkward almost virgins go from their third kiss (first genuine kiss) to banging? WITHIN MINUTES. Oh, and the super awkward science nerd, WHO SAID NO 3 TIMES, who seems to have no experience with women – of course is a rockstar in the bedroom. Because that makes sense. 🙄

BIG issues with the consent in this book.

The book opens with Olive, our heroine kiss-assaulting Adam with out his clear consent.

There is a moment before they get down that he is saying “No” for various reasons, and then the big reason is a lie that Olive has told in the past. He gives her an opening to come clean, tell the truth and be honest. SHE DOESN’T. And then they decide to do the deed… AND I WANTED TO THROW MY KINDLE AND DNF RIGHT FREAKIN THERE. The whole chapter 16 is a mess of a disaster. The whole thing is out of character FOR BOTH CHARACTERS. And then Adam is asking “Can I F*** you?” TWICE. Ugh. Such a gross and crass way to ask this. Why? Just Why?

I have tried to sleep on this review, think about it, re-write it in a nicer way. But every time I start thinking about it, especially Chapter 15/16 I get irrationally irate. I still want to throw my kindle.

First things first: I have loved this story since it was first published on AO3 as Reylo fanfiction. It was impeccable then. But Ali has made it even more poignant and timely by incorporating Title IX and Me Too into an already compelling STEM academia setting. Olive, for all her strengths, finds it impossible to believe in herself, both as a scientist and as a person. This book is as much about Olive coming into her own as it is about her changing her mind about Adam once he opens up to her (and humors her panicked scheming). Suffice it to say that I found it impossible not to fall in love with both Olive and Adam!
