Year of Smut 2021 - An author’s debut book ( )
  bookjunkie57 | Nov 17, 2021 |
So I have stayed up too late reading 3 days in a row. 2 of the 3 were the fault of this book.

This book made me feel. From the meet-cute, which I loved, to the weird scene 3 years later (which I admittedly didn't love) to the highly specific discussions on Adam's way of speaking and his voice-even heavily relying on that for their first meeting-I just ate this up.

I was expecting to hate it I have become very picky on the STEM heroine. The STEM setting, the fact that this is a professor and a student were why I was avoiding it, and finally, I heard it was Reylo fic, and I am so tired of subpar novels flooding this market after starting as fic. However, this was a well-conceptualized novel that gave me characters and relationship to root for (and frankly I felt very addicted to).

I simply loved the humor. I loved Adam's dimensions and in particular that he was gruff and abrasive in his humor while being loyal as heck to the few people he loved. I related to both characters in their struggles to navigate, particularly in the fact that they both chose very few relationships in their lives. I loved the portrayal of a woman's insecurities and the mysterious hero being revealed and broken down by the relationship he finds himself in. I loved the way that Olive thought about sex, which is to say not much, and liked that she had difficulty being attracted to people.

I know a lot of people can't stand withheld conversations and missed communication opportunities. I do not disagree on the whole, but I don't agree either. That missed connection here and there did not bother me in this book, and all the while the characters really were saying it without really putting it out there. I do wonder, though, why someone who could be so forthright with an intimidating stranger couldn't tell her best friend to fuck off from time to time, so the whole fake dating set up was stupidly contrived even if the motivations below it were sweet and believable. I did appreciate that rather than gloss over a normally-for-me yick of faculty/student it was a solid source of conflict for the characters, and that it was often at the forefront. In dealing with her friends, it could become more like a conflict of interest that would seem to be unsustainable to me. I still don't recommend it as a pairing that's easy to navigate through a relationship, and found it odd that another was introduced in this novel.

There was a bit of a plot wrench that was maybe a 'try to do too much' that I both appreciated (emotional!) and didn't know if was necessary. The follow-up to that, for me, was a bit cheap and unfortunate and made ever-so convenient in ways that remind me "this isn't real life" (view spoiler)

Anh and Malcolm - I think I could write a whole whole bunch on this topic. Rep. But is it good rep? It definitely pinged a lot "I wish this was done better," feelings for me throughout the book, but it didn't spoil the relationships or enjoyment of it overall. To be fair, however, I can also see it ruining some readers' experiences.

Finally, at the end of the novel, I realized this isn't likely REYLO so much as Real PERSON FICTION about Adam Driver. I have qualms about that, without a doubt, especially given this cover, because first, I just don't like RPF as a concept. I can understand influences/how you picture a character, etc etc, but this didn't come off as an echo. It makes me deeply uncomfortable that celebrities often time give up privacy because of their profession. No small part of my issues here in particular are about Adam Driver's particular drive for privacy.
And sidenote: I will amplify Meg here, too much of Adam's being tall. It really really doesn't come up all that much.

In the end though, hero as a mystery and some of the developments here were simply my most favorite types of things in first person POV romance. And it made me cry and it made me laugh. So it's a win in my book, but with reservations.

I look forward to seeing what the author does next. (less) [edit] ( )

“Hypothesis: If I fall in love, things will invariably end poorly.”

5/5 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! Absolutely loved this book and could not put it down. As a woman in medicine, I really appreciated this book as it was great mix of contemporary romance while authentically describing STEM programs/culture. Also, I love romance books that poke fun at rom-coms and other romance books. Olive’s inner monologue was super relatable and likable. Where can I find an Adam? Do they sell that on Amazon?

Ali, we need an entire book from Adam’s POV. But thank for chapter 16 from his POV 😉 ( )

I hesitated to start reading The Love Hypothesis because it has been SO hyped! I am happy to say that it lived up to the hype for me. I thought the academia setting was different than most contemporary romances out there. I also loved that it was male love interest, Adam, who was the one pining away for years. It was the right amount of slow burn. One chapter of steaminess that can be skipped and not take away from the overall story. So I wouldn't categorize this as a "clean" romance. I was pleasantly surprised with Ali Hazelwood's first book and look forward to her next. ( )
