Happy Monday Bookworms! I had a great reading week as I had a holiday for four days so I ended up binge-reading two books! I also wanted to discuss this particular genre I read. So, I read The Love Hypothesis and The Love Deception, I must say… I loved them. It’s been a minute since I binge-read and I had a great experience reading these two. Well, a fake dating trope spree it was! Let’s dive deep into these books!
The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood.
Age Limit: 17+
Olive does not believe in lasting romantic relationships, but her friend Anh does. Olive broke up with Jeremy and it was a mutual break-up. But, when Anh is interested in Jeremy but denies dating him because of the girl code, Olive tries to convince Anh that she is happy with another man. In the process of it.. she kisses the first man she sees at Stanford. The man is none other than Adam Carlsen who is the professor. He agrees to fake date her, but in the course of that Olive starts having feelings for him…
This book was everything! I loved the chemistry between Olive and Adam. Olive is shown to be chaotic and thrown into weird situations by her best friend. It was very funny to read those! After a long time, it felt like falling in love with reading all over again. At some points the story is heavy, but it was well handled by the author. This story is set in a scientific environment which was very interesting! A perfect fake dating trope read!
The Spanish Love Deception by Elena Armas.
Age Limit: 17+
Catalina Martín’s sister’s wedding is near. Catalina announces to her family that she will be bringing her American boyfriend as a plus one to the wedding. The only thing is, he doesn’t exist. While explaining the situation to her best friend, her arch-nemesis overhears the situation. He is none other than Aaron Blackford. The person who boils her blood, offers her to be the plus one for the trip. She has no other option but to say yes. Will the hatred turn into love for Catalina?
A funny and cute romance read this was! I did take away one star in this one since I felt that the conversations between characters felt repetitive and they were going back and forth over the same thing. Other than that, I love the chemistry between the characters and Catalina’s family was awesome! This is a great read with enemies to lovers and faking dating tropes.
Have you read these books? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Also please recommend me a fake dating or a enemies to lovers trope book! Happy Reading! Rabhya.
