Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
Funny, occasionally silly, & filled with lots of science, Marie Curie, and cat adoration, Love on the Brain wears its nerdiness proudly and I love that. Then there are those hot scenes & a hero who is *very* clearly into the heroine & she has no clue.
Really. She has no clue ;) .
Ordinarily, I love that too. But in this case Bee’s cluelessness feels like a bit much, especially after the other lead, hunky engineer Levi Ward, tells our Bee over & over again that he’s never hated her & she keeps insisting again & again that he did & he does.
Not to mention the other moments in the book when Bee is oblivious—like about a certain item she wears that would be confusing to a lot of people.
In some ways this book & Hazelwood’s writing style give me Mariana Zapata vibes. Approachable, quirky heroine who doesn’t always see the writing on the wall but in this case some of the things about the heroine & the story itself lose their charm after a while.
I will gladly take a STEM heroine, pining, & an opposites attract couple who actually are pretty similar (right?!), but I would have liked more subtlety from the story itself, especially on the miscommunication front.
3.5⭐️. Out now!
CW: Her previous fiancé cheated on her with BFF. Sexism in the workplace.
Give me that HEA, please.
