A book about a biochemist and computational biologist with loads of biochem references – I’m pretty much the exact target audience for this book, so it’s no surprise that I loved it.
I adored Olive’s nerdiness and her passion for her work. I also liked the way Adam was baffled by her. Explicit demi-sexual rep too, which you don’t see that often in US set romance.
Olive doesn’t date, but she needs to persuade her friend that she’s dating someone, so she kisses the first guy she can find, who just happens to be Dr Adam Carlson. Fake dating is always a fun trope. I liked how they gradually became comfortable in each other’s presence. There was a good side note about sexism in academia, too.
Very much my kind of book.
