“There was just something about these two that clicked and made my inner nerd squeal. And can I just applaud Kingsley on writing this story? The amount of research alone that she had to have done. Wowza.” ~ Amity Book Blog
“Corban is adorable. Disheveled, distracted, caring, full of animal facts, a BOSS in bed, and secretly jacked- what more could you want?” ~ Romance Reviewed
For psychology researcher Hazel Kiegen, science holds all the answers. Her decision to swear off dating? Totally backed by her own calculations. Just don’t ask about her missing orgasms. She hasn’t been able to science her way out of that little conundrum. But her biggest problem? Corban Nash. He’s frustrating. Infuriating. And deliciously adorable, but that’s neither here nor there. He claims to have cracked the code to falling in love, and Hazel is determined to prove him wrong.
Corban Nash created the theory of accelerated intimacy after numerous successful tests on his friends and family. Every couple who used his questionnaire fell in love, until Corban found himself the last single guy in his social circle, and a groomsman in dozens of weddings.
The only problem is, it’s never worked on him. And science hasn’t explained why.
Despite being the lone aberrant data point, Corban believes in his research, and with his new job, he’ll have the resources to prove it. Verifying his theory right under the nose of his nemesis, Hazel Kiegen? Even better.
There isn’t a theory in existence that will make Hazel fall in love with Corban. Not even with his sexy half-smile and temptingly muscular body. But from the moment these two rivals meet, sparks fly. And when they put his questionnaire to the test, the results aren’t what either of them expect.
Hazel and Corban are both brilliant and scientific. She is a college professor and researcher. But they are online nemeses. Of course Corban is hired at the college also to continue his research, and they are forced to work together.
There is so much I love about this book. The dialogue is on fire. The tension between the two is blazing. You know what they say about the thin line between love and hate… My favorite parts were rage yoga, fist unicorns, the friendship between Hazel, Everly, Nora, and Sophie, the entirety of the half marathon but especially the finish line. And penguins. And Satan (you’ll know when you read it).
You all really need to read this book. It’s hot and sweet and hilarious and girl-power inspiring and just everything.
