Book Review: Stuck With You by Ali Hazelwood


Logically, Sadie knows that civil engineers are supposed to build bridges. However, as a woman of STEM she also understands that variables can change, and when you are stuck for hours in a tiny New York elevator with the man who broke your heart, you earn the right to burn that brawny, blond bridge to the ground. Erik can apologize all he wants, but to quote her rebel leader—she’d just as soon kiss a Wookiee.

Not even the most sophisticated of Sadie’s superstitious rituals could have predicted such a disastrous reunion. But while she refuses to acknowledge the siren call of Erik’s steely forearms or the way his voice softens when he offers her his sweater, Sadie can’t help but wonder if there might be more layers to her cold-hearted nemesis than meet the eye. Maybe, possibly, even burned bridges can still be crossed….


I loved The Love Hypothesis so had to give Stuck With You a try. While it wasn’t as good as the author’s first offering, it was still an enjoyable read. Ali Hazelwood knows how to write a worthy romance story in 2022.

Stuck With You is a much shorter story, which some will appreciate and others not so much. Personally, I liked the injection of a happy book in between my usual murder mysteries. I liked how the story was told, flitting between the present day and Sadie and Erik’s 24-hour fling. I’ve read some reviews that said the book wasn’t long enough to have good character development but, to be honest, I was happy with what I got.

Of course, I also love that the author’s books promote women in science. I feel she does a great job of balancing the job aspect of the character with other elements of their personality. You might not be a scientist yourself, but there are other ways you will relate with the character.
