Although the book definitely delivers on its premise and I had a decent time reading it, I just couldn’t bring myself to really like it.There were aspects of the story I truly enjoyed –like the church fighting and the whole newspaper atmosphere but, ultimately, I wasn’t invested on the relationship. I think I just didn’t like the couple at all. Not even as individuals. The writing style was fine –it was your typical contemporary kind of telling but yeah, didn’t like the romance.I hop [...]

I really liked the unique angle of this book. An experiment to determine whether 36 questions asked and answered honestly between two strangers can spark the emotion of love. It's an interesting theory and I enjoyed reading about how these two completely opposite co-workers attempted this challenge. For the most part, I really liked reading this story. Watching two MCs go from enemies to lovers is always like book crack for me and made for some great push and pull. I do think this book could hav [...]

3.5-4 Stars. The writing was beautiful and hot, but it took me a while to warm up to the hero. He was a total ass for the first 25-30%, and then all of a sudden he was amazing. I'm happy with how it all worked out, but I thought it wrapped up a little too quickly.

4.5 starsThis book lived up to my hopes of an office love-hate and more. After reading the blurb, I knew this had potential and what I found was a funny, chemistry-laden office scenario, with characters who were superb. The story of THE LOVE EXPERIMENT built through the pages into what eventually became an intense love story.Derelie (pronounced like merrily) was what seemed to be a mousy reporter doing lifestyle pieces. She slipped under the radar in meetings and in the office. She was commissio [...]

I heard about this book from Lucy Parker when she retweeted a link to it. I read the summary and was immediately intrigued. As much as I adore romance, there’s no denying that there’s sometimes a lack of creativity in the genre. So, the concept of The Love Experiment was a breath of fresh air. I just loved the idea of two people who would otherwise never connect falling in love through a proven survey experiment, and I thought Ainslie Paton worked with the concept beautifully.One of the reas [...]

I could break this up into thirds, I think: the first third was rough and choppy, and didn't build the enemies-to-lovers effectively for me. It's not that I couldn't sense the chemistry, I wasn't sure I cared at that pointThen, the 2nd third came. We're a crash course in chemical attraction. we're lab rats let loose and juiced up on conversation. We're as ill-advised as we're inevitable. And I thought YES.There is wonderful banter throughout, and Derelie may not appear tough, but she is tough- a [...]

First read: September 2017 (4 stars)Also on Romances Ever After.Derelie Honeywell and Jack Haley cannot be more wrong for each other. Derelie (“rhymes with merrily”) writes light-hearted, lifestyle pieces (that Jack snottily refers to as “clickbait”) for the online version of the paper they both work for, while Jack’s the star of the print version and has been dubbed the Saviour of the City for all the investigative reporting that he’s done. It took a while for them to get in sync (e [...]

If you like snarky banter, strong heroines and thought-provoking stories, then you need to add Ainslie Paton to your reading list. In The Love Experiment, she’s taken a psychological study meant to enhance intimacy and paired two opposites in a sexy, unique romance.36 Questions. 4 minutes of sustained eye contact. 1 love match? That’s what rookie reporter Derelie Honeywell is out to discover when she’s assigned the task of participating in a ‘love experiment’ as part of her lifestyle s [...]

Enjoyed it a lot! The ending felt a bit rushed, I would have love an epilogue, but other than that is was quite nice - fun and smart and serious.This was my first book by this author and I enjoyed it a lot. It's a modern day sort of opposites-attract romance with complex character, a love story full of twists and turns unfolding at the background of the desperate struggle of old-school newspaper against going digital edition only. I'm in general wary of office romances but here the hero and hero [...]

4.5 stars, rounding up. Ainslie Paton is a new-to-me author, so I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this!I liked the premise of two journalists at the same newspaper being thrown together by their superiors for the "love experiment," which refers to a (real!) questionnaire that is supposed to develop intimacy with a series of questions that two people ask each other. This felt like an original twist on the newsroom romance. I do want t [...]

3.5 Stars, mostly because I felt like the relationship happened too fast but was sort of slowburn at the beginning, however once the relationship happened it moved waaaaay too fast, I still enjoyed it a lot because both main characters were complex and we got to know a lot about what made them act the way they acted, I'm also taking points down because I love epilogues and this one didn't have one!!!!! GIVE ME ALL THE CUTE YOU CAN POSSIBLY FIT INTO WORDS BRING IT ON I AM READY

Ainslie Paton is a completely new author to me and it is always exciting to find a new author to admire and read. The Love Experiment was such an unexpected pleasure for many reasons but perhaps especially because it never followed a predictable plot. While it begins with a light-hearted and pretty hokey questionnaire that forces two very different and even antagonistic co-workers together to test their ability to withstand artificial forced intimacy, it goes to places I did not foresee. It is q [...]

I struggled with the writing style of this at first but, I liked the premise and stuck with it, and I'm glad I did! Once I got used to the writing I really enjoyed the characters and their story. This is a simple, cute romance that is low on unnecessary angst (yay). I also appreciated having a likable heroine that didn't make stupid decisions (double yay). If you're looking for something light and sweet, this is a good one to try!

This book had me turning the pages what a story it engages you from the start the banter and whit is so very entertaining there will be laughs and smiles as you get to know hero Jack Haley who is an investigative journalist with the Courier newspaper in Chicago, and new to the city journalist Derelie Honeywell who also works for the same paper although in the online department, sit back and enjoy.Derelie was the girl from the country loved dogs comes from a fabulous family and was determined to [...]

I adored this novel with my whole, whole heart. THANK YOU Lisa and Nick for letting me know about this beautiful novel via Twitter, because what would my life be like without Jack and Derelie (rhymes with merrily).Jack, though an utter arsewipe at the start of the book, turned out to be this magical human being that I wanted to roll up into a ball. He made some bad choices towards the end of the novel, but I could see why he did even though I hated him for it. But at the same time he was SO BLOO [...]

I loved reading about the characters of Derelie Honeywell and Jackson Haley in author Ainslie Paton's newest novel, The Love Experiment. A feel good read that I could not put down. Ms Paton is fast becoming my go-to author for unmissable reads.Review copy received from Carina Press via Netgalley

Ainslie Paton has the gift to create a page turner. I loved this story from beginning to end. The hero is broody and mean, ala James Dean, yet you can't help but fall in love with him. The heroine is sassy and strong. She takes no nonsense from him, but when he does bruise her heart, boy, do you feel it like an arrow through yours. The emotional ride is spectacular, the characters come to life on the page. Ms Paton is a genius storyteller, and if you like hard-hitting, edge-of-the-seat, gritty-y [...]

The premise of this book is quite interesting but I had a hard time getting into it. I felt detached from the main characters and I think that is mainly because of the writing style. There was (too) much focus on journalism and the changing times, where papers are starting to get obsolete and the internet is taking over. The Hero is old school, writes investigative pieces. He is thrown together with the heroine for a piece called The love experiment and they start a relationship, but when he enc [...]

I had never heard of Ainslie Paton before and I only picked up The Love Experiment because Nick reviewed it and said it came on her radar because of Lucy Parker, an author I love, so I had to check this out. I preordered it and everything. I have no regrets, it was a swoon-worthy and addictive read I wasn't 100% I'd love but went in optimistic.It all revolves around two reporters at a struggling newspaper answering questions to an experiment to see if it can forge a connection between them.

Copy received from the author for an honest reviewAn Aislie Paton book is like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates - you never know what you're going to get.I love that they are a little bit left of centre, that the characters are quirky and fun.Whilst The Love Experiment is a little more "normal" than her other works, I adored it just as much.You can't help but love both Derelie (rhymes with merrily!) and Jack. Their relationship is not all fun and games, and you know it is going to be a loooong t [...]

There was a section in the middle - after they got together (!!! yes there are CHAPTERS of them after they've gotten together!!! my fave kind of romance!!!!) - where I was certain I'd be giving this five stars. The way the leads settle into each other and keep learning about each other while knowing each other at a gut level at the same time was kind of wonderful. I especially loved seeing the building confidence with their relationship, from both sides; and how both of them were equally capable [...]

Why did I let this sit in my tbr pile for so long? This book was amazing! Jack and Derelie both work for a Chicago newspaper. Jack is a cynical Investigative Journalist and Derelie is a country girl in the big city doing the "click bait" info-tainment stories for the online paper. They both get roped into doing a story about The Love Experiment, a set of 36 questions said to promote intimacy. Jack is adamant about not getting involved in this fluff and he is quite an a$$ to Derelie for a large p [...]

This is a fun one called The Love Experiment by Ainslee Paton with an Investigative Journalist and a ClickBait writer at a newspaper in Chicago. The humor was lively, especially in the beginning, when they are thrown together for an article about an Intimacy Experiment. There is insight into the changes in the newspaper publishing business as well as a farm girl adjusting to living in the big city.

I enjoyed the two main characters and their give-and-take dialogue. They built an interesting dynamic through the novel. Derelie developed as a character throughout and proved to be a nice balance for Jack. Sadly personal dislike of certain background concepts prevent me from rating this higher—that said I can understand why I’ve seen a few people compare this to “The Hating Game”. It’s not the same but the dialogue has a certain spark that is lacking in other books.

Took me a while to finish this book (2 months!!) and that had nothing to do with the book. I really liked it. Jack and Derelie's story was wonderful and I got a nice look inside journalism. The romance was sprinkled through perfectly and I loved the Marta bits! I always love Ms Paton's writing and this one again didn't disappoint.

I had to think about this for a bit before writing my review, because while I really enjoyed this book, I flip-flopped between what star rating to give. There were parts of the book where I loved it so much that it was getting 5 stars from me, but then there were other parts, particularly when the hero was being a giant pain in the rear, when I was going down to 3 stars. Ultimately, though, what rounded it out to a 4-star rating was the fantastic writing by Ainslie Paton. Absolutely superb, kept [...]

I liked this very much. I think there are moments when it moves too close to the hero being an irredeemable ass to the heroine, but it never ultimately crossed the line. And it was a very feeling full book, which is something I've been looking for lately. Big emotions. I want them.
