“Is there something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?”
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?

This was a good book okay. Despite the bright colors in the cover there were some parts that also hit those deep moments. And the writing of the romance between the two MCs was very unique.
It’s just that, well. . . I’m not a fan of the writing style. It didn’t grip me and the only thing that was keeping me going was the plot (it wasn’t that unique, but I enjoyed it).
BUT what I really liked was the theme of this book as well as the characters in it. The characters were just lovable that I was okay with reading through the whole thing just because I loved the characters (I’m that kind of reader). The theme and the air of the book is also a bit refreshing and light and it worked out great for me when I was reading this book. I was also fairly amused with this book and I did find it very entertaining. It reached my standards when it came to the writing of the characters. Though, the character depth was missing.
The questions were too much if you ask me. Maybe abut 20 questions would have been okay?? I have never been a fan of books that had too many “questions” or “reasons” for the book to happen and what not because when it is too much, the writing will also seem rushed. Sadly, this is also why happen in this book. For the first 26 questions it was still going great but for the last 10 or so that’s when the writing started to feel rushed.
The romance did seem pretty long and prolonged if you know what I mean? I actually wanted to see the two main characters interact more in real life rather than just fall in love but you know, that might just be me.
