This was an adorable enemies-to-lovers story featuring another wonderful STEM female. Bee is a neuroscientist who is awarded the opportunity to partner with NASA on a new project. Her excitement quickly wanes when she realizes that her co-lead is someone who hated her all through school.
There were some mysterious things happening on this project, and I really enjoyed that little bit of wondering that the mystery provided. It was fun to try to figure out what was happening.
The romance between Bee and Levi was great, and I definitely enjoyed their banter, and their growth as they learn and understand each other. Levi is absolutely a love interest that readers are going to fall for. He’s quiet, brooding, and amazing!
For me though, this book is about celebrating women in science, and about pushing for equitable treatment of women in not only this industry, but really all industries. I loved the focus on Marie Curie and how the twitter account gives a platform for women to discuss their career battles. It was just a really great story, and I highly recommend it!
Where to Find This Book:
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Love Hypothesis comes a new STEMinist rom-com in which a scientist is forced to work on a project with her nemesis—with explosive results.
Bee Königswasser lives by a simple code: What would Marie Curie do? If NASA offered her the lead on a neuroengineering project – a literal dream come true – Marie would accept without hesitation. Duh. But the mother of modern physics never had to co-lead with Levi Ward.
Sure, Levi is attractive in a tall, dark, and piercing-eyes kind of way. But Levi made his feelings toward Bee very clear in grad school – archenemies work best employed in their own galaxies far, far away.
But when her equipment starts to go missing and the staff ignore her, Bee could swear she sees Levi softening into an ally, backing her plays, seconding her ideas… devouring her with those eyes. The possibilities have all her neurons firing.
But when it comes time to actually make a move and put her heart on the line, there’s only one question that matters: What will Bee Königswasser do?
