Sunny Shelly’s Review: Love According To Science, by Claire Kingsley


Love According to Science

Dirty Martini Running Club # 2 by Claire Kingsley

For psychology researcher Hazel Kiegen, science is everything. 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.

Author’s note: Stand-alone romcom featuring a hot nerdy hero in hate-lust with his sworn enemy. A heroine with book smarts and a fluffy cat named Erwin. So much awkwardness and geeky banter. Super hot hate sex. Badass lady friendships with a widening circle of trust. And an HEA that will leave you swooning with happiness and your heart exploding with glitter.


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Hot nerd alert! Corban is unlike any other Claire Kinglsey hero. He’s a of a bumbling, awkward introvert, super brilliant but super low on the self-esteem. He’s crafted a brilliant questionnaire about the science of love, but seems to be the one test subject it won’t work on.

But Corban really meets his match in Hazel. This enemies-to-lovers romcom is everything. Snarky comments fly between two people that are so alike and perfect for each other, but insanely stubborn about it. The copy room sex…. I think I needed a co-down after that!

Little by little, these two catch feelings for each other, but admitting those feelings kind of blows up spectacularly. It all leads to an adorable reconciliation when Corban goes all out to put his heart on the line.

And as a long-time CK reader, I loved all the cameos/references to some of her previous books! Ivy works at the same college as Corban and Hazel; Corban plays basketball with “the dads” from the Book Boyfriend series and Everly and Shepherd’s wedding is at the Miles family’s vineyard. Two of my favorite moments were Weston’s mic-drop “Marry Her” and Corban calling Shep “Satan”!!! Brilliant!

She’s his penguin!! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
