Review: Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood


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?

Rating: 5-stars


Love on the Brain by Ali Hazelwood is by far the best STEM novel for women. I also love how it features a strong, independent women in a STEM field but also taking charge of her own feelings. Romance, humor, and intelligence is the new sexy. Ali Hazelwood presents great topics in a way that is more than just interesting. I am hooked. This is the first of her novels, I have read. I love the banters between the archenemies and the way Levi keeps coming to the rescue. Laughing and falling deep for these characters is impossible not to do. Levi is my all-time favorite hero. I love a guy who is smart, caring, and can still blush. He is so swoon worthy! Then, there is Bee who wants her own lab and works hard for what she wants. But as with everything, things get complicated by the page and heat up fast. I love all the elements in this novel. There is so much to love. This tale does not have one boring moment nor any flaws. It is forever staying on my shelf to re-read anytime I want. Overall, Love on the Brain is not just a character driven novel. It has depth, has an emotional roller-coaster, intrigue, and so much more. I cannot wait to read more by this talented writer!
