I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.Zoe Adams is an audacious author exploring the layered ups and downs of love.A passionate writer, she draws her inspiration from a variety of sources. Her admiration for romance books, her understanding of human character, and her observing eye for exciting scenarios are a few of them. But above all, her greatest writing gift is her bold, unapologetic love for love itself.

Overwhelmed by her mother’s addiction to gambling and her brother’s constant request for money, Maya Bloom finds herself broke when her boss offers her a promotion she can’t refuse. She is a young and talented scientist working at a research lab who is more comfortable with theory than practice. Because of her family and money struggles, shy Maya leads a study on a technology that could change the lives of millions.

Matthew, a crippled but handsome Berkeley professor, is assigned to audit her research when things seem to be improving. He is rude to her at first, but as they get to know each other better, they become friends. However, when their relationship starts to grow into a more serious one, Maya discovers he has serious issues with intimacy and trust. She feels drawn to him and his terrible life story, but at the same time, what if he just wants to take advantage of her caring selflessness like her family once did?

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, or some crap like that.”

Maya is doing everything she can to care for her mother and brother. When a huge opportunity comes up, it allows her to get her family life under control and brings Matthew into her life.

This was very sweet. I love how Maya and Matthew connected over their love of food and science. Their connection was so pure and honest.

I found their story sweet. I liked that Matthew wasn’t the typical romance male lead. It added depth to his character and showcased what a true caregiver Maya is.

I like that this series stays connected with little moments between the friend group. It’s charming.
