As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn't believe in lasting romantic
relationships but her best friend does, and that's what got her into this situation.
C onvincing Anh that Olive on her way to a happily ever after was always going to be
tough, scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting woman, Olive panics and
kisses the first man she sees.
That man is none other than Adam C arlsen, a young hotshot professor and well-known
ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when he agrees to keep her charade a secret
and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, their little
experiment feels dangerously close to combustion.
Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting
her own heart under the microscope.
