The Love Algorithm by Camilla Isley

Camilla Isley’s new book was a delightful read. As with all Isley books, it flows smoothly and offers a lighthearted and fun reading experience.

What is it about?

At 28, with a Ph.D under her belt and a meteoric rise to head of Research and Development at Mercer Robotics, Reese feels her decision to put her career first has worked out pretty well for her. Sure, she doesn’t have many personal relationships to speak of, but she does love her team and they like her too.

So when she’s called to the Big Boss’s office and told she will be looking after his son while he does a rotation in her lab, she’s not thrilled that her hard work and achievements have boiled down to being a glorified babysitter – especially to a billionaire playboy with zero experience of mechanical engineering.

But then tall, blond Thomas walks into her office, and Reese realizes this assignment is going to be even harder than she thought. Because the CEO’s son is not only extraordinarily gorgeous, chiseled, and charming… he’s also on course to become her new boss one day, and so extraordinarily out of bounds. As the pair get to know each other, can Reese hold her nerve and her beliefs, or will she fall victim to the billionaire charm?

I always like reading about women in STEM and loved reading about Reese. She’s a career-focused woman passionate about her job who wants nothing and no one to ruin it. But along comes Tom, the billionaire heir to the company she works for. Tom is the epitome of a golden retriever man. He’s pure smiles, positivity, and sunshine. I love reading about their dynamic, growing attraction, Star Wars references, and little notes they left for each other.

However, I didn’t like the instant attraction between them. This was supposed to be an enemies to lovers and it was nothing like it. They were already into each other as soon as they met, and that’s not something I usually enjoy.

Nonetheless, it was a fun, quick and lighthearted read that I know many people will enjoy.

Thank you so much to the publisher and Camilla Isley for the eARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

love, Lin xo
