Love on the Brain: From the bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis
About this deal
those are all things that are unexciting, but things that can be overlooked, but recycling scenes again is just lazy writing at this point. However, I can totally see the pitchforks coming out for this couple—how it's completely unrealistic, how there's no way it would take her this long to come to her senses. Ojo, sí sospechaba del "villano", lo que me sacó de onda fue LO QUE LE QUERÍA HACER A BEE, se me hizo muy forzado, como que muy fuera de las vibras del libro). Bee and Levi are FANTASTIC together, and it was easy to see all of the ways they're perfect for each other.
At this very moment i wish i was one of those sophisticated reviewers that had fair but true critiques of this book, and don't get me wrong there are very many. She’s everything I ever wanted and I want to inject her into my veins and also to never see her again. But when she realizes she’s going to work with grad school arch-nemesis Levi Ward: tall, dark haired, piercing green eyes, a brainy Adonis, she curses her luck! It would have been better to have had a male narrator too but she did a great job and made the story better anyway. Things that weren't rage and masochistic tendencies and a desire to throw a book-shaped object at a wall?There is no information about this book anywhere online yet, but what I gather from the first chapter is STEM + You've Got Mail trope.
I wanted to love her sophomore novel, but this was one of the most mind-numbing/soul-crushing/coochie-drying experiences of my life and I have to speak my truth. 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. Add a sh*t-eating determination to make every love interest Dark And Broody And Boring And In Love Quietly For Years with their quirky, colorful-haired, deeply immature and at best adolescent (but really toddler-esque) counterparts. My other problem was the fact that Hazelwood made it uncomfortable by forcing, yes forcing, situations which became misogynistic when there's absolutely no requirement to do so.Even the novellas, which were disappointing in almost every way, brought some smut to the table that I thought was worth reading. Bee has a thing about not getting pets or forming meaningful romantic relationships because all these bonds will end up breaking her heart one way or another. Often I would find myself grinning from cheek to cheek, chuckling to myself while Bee held some amusing and sarcastic conversation or inner dialogue. Not-Main-Love-Interest asks her out BUT SHE OBVIOUSLY DOESN’T SEE EVEN ONE OF THE VAST NUMBER OF BLUSHES AND FLUSHES AND SWALLOWS AND PANIC MOMENTS THAT LEVI HAS IN HER PRESENCE NO SHE DOES NOT.
