Waterstones Says

From the author of The Love Hypothesis and Love on the Brain comes another sharp and witty STEMinist romcom as theoretical physicist and fake-girlfriend-for-hire Elsie prepares to do battle with her physics department head.

Rival physicists collide in a vortex of academic feuds and fake dating shenanigans in this delightfully STEMinist romcom.

The many lives of theoretical physicist Elsie Hannaway have finally caught up with her. By day, she's an adjunct professor, toiling away at grading labs and teaching thermodynamics in the hopes of landing tenure. By other day, Elsie makes up for her non-existent paycheck by offering her services as a fake girlfriend, tapping into her expertly honed people-pleasing skills to embody whichever version of herself the client needs.

Honestly, it's a pretty sweet gig - until her carefully constructed Elsie-verse comes crashing down. Because Jack Smith, the annoyingly attractive and arrogant older brother of her favourite client, turns out to be the cold-hearted experimental physicist who ruined her mentor's career and undermined the reputation of theorists everywhere. And he's the same Jack Smith who rules over the physics department at MIT, standing right between Elsie and her dream job.

Elsie is prepared for an all-out war of scholarly sabotage but... those long, penetrating looks? Not having to be anything other than her true self when she's with him? Will falling into an experimentalist's orbit finally tempt her to put her most guarded theories on love into practice?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Your world is about to be rocked. - Elena Armas, author of The Spanish Love Deception (on Love on the Brain)

Hopelessly, brilliantly, wonderfully romantic. I loved it even more than The Love Hypothesis, and I didn't think that was possible - Cressida McLaughlin on Love on the Brain

Ali Hazelwood proves that science is sexy as hell, and that love can 'STEM' from the most unlikely places. She's my newest must-buy author. - Jodi Picoult on Love on the Brain

Gloriously nerdy and sexy, with on-point commentary about women in STEM. - Helen Hoang, author of The Heart Principle on Love on the Brain

Proves that STEM can be sexy! - Red

Contemporary romance's unicorn: the elusive marriage of deeply brainy and delightfully escapist. - Christina Lauren, author of The Unhoneymooners on The Love Hypothesis

“I inhaled it, loved it and immediately reread it.”

It’s rare that I reread a book as soon as I finish it. I've gone straight back to the beginning with Love Theoretically. I was so excited to get my hands on this and it absolutely did not disappoint. Ali... More

“When is too soon to reread?”

At this point I will read anything Ali Hazelwood writes because it’s always the perfect combination of witty, flirty and clever, and Love, Theoretically feels like a book I’ll read time and time again.
