Beschreibung

' Your world is about to be rocked.' Elena Armas, author of The Spanish Love Deception

'Hopelessly, brilliantly, wonderfully romantic. I loved it even more than The Love Hypothesis, and I didn't think that was possible' Cressida McLaughlin

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.

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?

'Ali Hazelwood proves that science is sexy as hell, and that love can 'STEM' from the most unlikely places. She's my newest must-buy author.' Jodi Picoult

'I cannot get enough of her brand of brainy romance! Writing with an emotionally brilliant and witty pen, Hazelwood is an absolute romance powerhouse.' Christina Lauren, author of The Unhoneymooners

' Gloriously nerdy and sexy, with on-point commentary about women in STEM.' Helen Hoang, author of The Heart Principle

' Proves that STEM can be sexy!' Red

What the five star reviews are saying about The Love Hypothesis:
'Did I read this in 24 hours? Yes.'
'Funny. Snarky. Intelligent. Real.'
'If you're even slightly thinking about getting this book to read, just go a head and do it'
'Adam is just *swoon*'
'Ali Hazelwood has made herself an auto-buy author'
'It was just... perfect.'
'A heroine you will instantly fall in love with'

Hopelessly, brilliantly, wonderfully romantic. I loved it even more than The Love Hypothesis, and I didn't think that was possible Cressida McLaughlin

after reading TLH, I just cannot reccomend this one

Bewertung am 20.09.2022

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Usually, I do not write reviews, but with this one I had to get things off my chest. This novel was a mess – even more so after coming from THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS. Don't get me wrong, I loved Hazelwood's debut novel, so I definitely didn't start reading this one wanting to hate on the author or the book. I did have expectations, TLH really set the bar high. But this one was not it, and I'll try to explain why I think this book was so bad and break down everything that went wrong. So, first off, the first dozen pages were extremely hard to get trough for me. You're introduced to the female protagonist, Bee Königswasser, a neuroscientist. So far, so good. She is immediately described as extremely quirky, which by itself is fine. However, the author does push it to the limit. You'll see when you read it, I am certainly not going to spoiler, but every single cliché will be reinforced sooner or later. This is a repetitive pattern throughout the entire novel, and I found this to be extremely annoying over time. This brings me to the next issue I had while reading: the characters. Or more precisely, the lack of. Again, very annoying to me. The characters and the plot were too similar, if not a copy, of Hazelwood's first novel. Nothing new to the baseline of the story, no additions whatsoever. The entire plot basically stayed the same, with a few minor tweaks here and there. It took the excitement out of reading and made the story more or less foreseeable. You just knew what would be happening the next chapter, there was no space left for a story unfolding in front of you. It was at this point I realized Bee felt like an idolized and more glamorized version of the author. Just read the last pages of the book, where the author is introduced, and make of that what you will. Speaking of the author, who is a scientist herself, I really don't get the whole men bashing here. I loved the STEM aspect in the first novel, it was very subtle and a great introduction to readers that don't have a background in this field. Compared to TLH, it was absolutely not justified and didn't sit well with the plot. I get it, being a woman in a male dominated work environment is never that easy, but the way this was portrayed here didn't sit well with me. Again, very repetitive, but I did enjoy the little scratch on the surface of another issue, which is connected to Bee's “secret”. Speaking of Bee and her “secret”, this was a complete mess itself and is somewhat tied to the last part of the story. The third part of the book was just… laughable. It didn't help the plot, it didn't contribute to the development of the relationship between the two main characters, and it definitely wasn't a good addition to an already messy and flat story. To put it plain and simple, it was just unnecessary. I had really high hopes for this book, but was ultimately disappointed. Not even the ongoing romance between Bee and Levi could salvage that. There was no real development of their relationship, especially when compared to TLH. What took me by surprise however was the fact that the male main character admits to having gone through years of therapy. I found this to be a new, but very pleasant little detail in the world of romance, it just made it clear that the female protagonist didn't suddenly heal her love interest issues simply by loving him. A detail that is every so often swept under the rug, even in other novels with similar or even different tropes. Yes, the rough upbringing is kind of cliché at this point, but I enjoyed how Hazelwood took the opportunity and be somewhat innovative. What wasn't very innovative was whatever the hell happened between Bee and Levi. Knowing what the author could have done here, everything felt terribly rushed. To be a little more specific: the sex scenes described were incredibly bad, and there were three of them. Compared to TLH, it really was horrible. TLH focused a lot more on the intimacy and the “everything in between”, the awkwardness between two people head over heels exploring each other for the first time, the excitement of doing so; it was realistic, it was raw and most importantly, it wasn't badly written smut like you would expect from a teenage girl getting her fantasies out on Wattpad. However, I did like the little chapter titles and the parallels between Bee and Marie Curie were nice. It pains me to say, but spare yourself from the disappointment this novel will bring if you enjoyed TLH.

Erwartungen nicht ganz erfüllt

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Ich habe das Buch mit großer Vorfreude gekauft, die Erwartungen konnten aber leider nicht ganz erfüllt werden. Die Romanze hat eine sehr lange Vorlaufzeit und das Schema Enemy to Lover hat mich in diesem Fall nicht ganz überzeugt. Die Protagonistin Bee fand ich schön auserwählt und im großen und ganzen habe ich mich gut unterhalten gefühlt.

What would Marie Curie do?

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

According to this book, Marie Curie would take a job offer to work at Nasa, even though she has to work with her college enemy. She would love cats and she would be miscommunating with said enemy, up to the point of thinking he would kick her off their joined project. And she would also start a friends with benefits relationship with him, even though he wants more. To be honest, I hate the miscommunication trope. But in this book? Ohh, I really enjoyed it in this one. And the chemisty between those two... they could set something in fire within nanoseconds. Bee is somebody who doesn't believe in love, especially after her fiance cheated on her with her best friend. And Levi never really learned how to communicate with people because of his military family. Now they have to work together on a project, and somehow all goes wrong. Bee thinks, Levi might have sabotaged her, all the while Levi is on cloud nine. So you better be prepared for some good laughs and even better, a few exlicit scenes. Ali Hazelwood really knows how to write a great rom-com that includes some whit.
