Hildy and Paul each have their own reasons for joining the university psychology study that asks the simple question: Can love be engineered?
The study consists of 36 questions, ranging from “What is your most terrible memory?” to “When did you last sing to yourself?” By the time Hildy and Paul have made it to the end of the questionnaire, they’ve laughed and cried and lied and thrown things and run away and come back and driven each other almost crazy. They’ve also each discovered the painful secret the other was trying so hard to hide. But have they fallen in love?
My Blurb- one overly eccentric girl and one stereotypical aloof boy answer 36 questions about their lives.
Wow. Okay this book was pretty awful. I mean, I got through it okay so it was an easy read in that sense- but it was…bad. I couldn’t relate with the characters . Oh and the guy was not attractive , the girl was so insecure. I like tattoos as much as the next guy, if not more- but a face teardrop tattoo? (Spoiler Alert- he was NOT in a gang!) A girl who dated her gay best friend and whines incessantly that she was so unattractive that he is now gay… Am I making you want to run and pick up this book? Ya, that’s why it’s 2 our of 5 stars.
The most interesting part about this book is that it was based on a true study to see if you could facilitate people falling in love, which was popularized in the New York Times. Maybe there’s another book that would interest me about this psych study… a better book.
Skip this read and move onto the next on your TBR list!
