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. Like an avenging, purple-haired Jedi bringing balance to the mansplained universe, 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 after years scraping by on the crumbs of academia--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. And sure, he caught her in his powerfully corded arms like a romance novel hero when she accidentally damseled in distress on her first day in the lab. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school--archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.   Now, her equipment is missing, the staff is ignoring her, and Bee finds her floundering career in somewhat of a pickle. Perhaps it's her occipital cortex playing tricks on her, but Bee could swear she can see Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas...devouring her with those eyes. And 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?… (more)

Marie Curie devotee, Bee Konigswasser, has finally landed her dream job at NASA helping to design and implement a neuroengineering project, but everything sours when she hears that she will be working with her grad school nemesis, Levi Ward. Bee knows that Levi hates her, and that knowledge is reinforced when it seems as though he is trying to sabotage her part of their project, making her attraction to him more than a little inconvenient. However, when it becomes clear that other forces are at work, Bee discovers that Levi might be more of an ally than she ever could have hoped.

Love on the Brain is a fun rom-com set in the world of STEM. All of the characters in the story are bright, intelligent people, especially the leads whose quirky personalities are well developed, but are at times, annoying, making them difficult to like, particularly at the beginning of the story. Supporting characters are less developed, but add depth and layers to the plot. While the ending is a little far-fetched, and somewhat predictable, most of the story is entertaining. Overall, Love on the Brain is another successful addition to Ali Hazelwood's growing list of titles. ( )

I enjoyed this enemy to lovers romance so much. Ali's writing is gloriously funny. The main character Bee had adorable quirks, she's neurotic, she was so loveable. Major events of the plot were foreshadowed but I immensely enjoyed Bee's journey and the writing was very entertaining. It was a delightful read. ( )

Love on the Brain is a glittering romp, embracing ador and academia in equal measure. Science turns sexy in Hazelwood’s second novel, flipping old cliches upside down and putting a modern twist on the adages of romance. When neuroscientist Bee Konigswasser lands her dream job only to learn that she will be co-leading the project with her grad-school nemesis Levi Ward, she has no choice but to thrust their history aside to focus on the biggest assignment of her life. Unfortunately, the past doesn't like to stay buried, and soon secrets begin spilling out. Determined to not be a damsel in distress, Bee struggles to accept Levi’s help when sabotage suddenly begins affecting their work. Soon, the former archenemies are in the technological race of their lives, where they start to see that working together will be the only path to success. A spicy liaison woven artfully with social commentary on the politics of science, this novel is a love letter to STEM, classic Hollywood romance, and to anyone who has ever raised the question, “What would Marie Curie do?” ( )

3 hours into the audiobook and the MC and LI both still refuse to use their words. MC thinks LI hates her and despises her. MC overhears conversation where LI tells someone else that MC is great at her job and deserves support. MC has conversation with LI about this, but then stamps off for the umpteenth time without listening to LI. LI does not tell MC what's going on for like 8 conversations, doesn't follow up on missed communications, and is confused when his good intentions aren't given credit.

I can't. This is young adult behavior from people wearing adult clothes. DNF. ( )
