The Love Hypothesis
The Love Hypothesis | Laura Steven
5 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
An LGBT romantic comedy with a twist from the Comedy Women in Print prize winner Laura Steven, author of The Exact Opposite of Okay. A hilarious love story with bite, for fans of Sex Education, Booksmart, Becky Albertalli's Love, Simon and Jenny Han's To All The Boys I've Loved Before. Physics genius Caro Kerber-Murphy knows shes smart. With straight As and a college scholarship already in the bag, shes meeting her two dads colossal expectations and then some. But theres one test shes never quite been able to ace: love. And when, in a particularly desperate moment, Caro discovers a (definitely questionable) scientific breakthrough that promises to make you irresistible to everyone around you, she wonders if this could be the key. What happens next will change everything Caro thought she knew about chemistry in the lab and in love. Is hot guy Haruki with her of his own free will? Are her feelings for her best friend some sort of side-effect? Will her dog, Sirius, ever stop humping her leg? Laura is the author of fiercely funny feminist comedy The Exact Opposite of Okay and its sequel, A Girl Called Shameless. The Exact Opposite of Okay was a bestselling young adult debut in 2018 and won the inaugural Comedy Women in Print prize, founded by Helen Lederer, from a shortlist including Gail Honeyman's Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and Why Mummy Swears by Gill Sims. Praise for The Exact Opposite of Okay: 'A brilliant social satire . . . disarmingly charming and relatable . . . it was hilarious. Laura Steven is an explosive talent on the page!' CWIP judges Marian Keyes, Kathy Lette, Katy Brand, Allison Pearson, Shazia Mirza and Jennifer Young 'Laura Steven simultaneously destroyed the patriarchy and made me laugh so hard I choked. I will protect Izzy O'Neill with my life.' Becky Albertalli, author of Love, Simon

Finished this book last Monday. It was a great one. Loved the STEM aspect. And what a funny journey. Kinda a grumpy/sunshine trope. The hype is real.

Hated it. There was way too much talk about food and lying and how tall Adam was and not enough plot or character development. Everybody was bland, there was no story besides “Olive lies, fake dates Adam, and no one can communicate”. I only read it bc my sister asked me to annotate it, since she also hated it. Also it‘s Reylo fanfic, and I‘m not here for it.

This was so cute, witty and wholesome, I loved it. Definitely one for a summer contemporary pile of must reads.
