But his newly married life is turned on its head when his former major, Evan Holloway, is invalided home from the continent.

Nobody Like You

PGg0IHN0eWxlPSJjb2xvcjojNjY2OyB0ZXh0LWFsaWduOmNlbnRlcjsiPkdlbnJlOiB7QGZlYXR1cmVkX2dlbnJlfTwvaDQ+ Yeju Hwarng no longer believes in love. After breaking up with her long-term girlfriend and watching her parents divorce over the summer, all her passion disappeared, including her passion for science that got her into her microbiology PhD program. When a new roommate moves into the apartment, Yeju recognizes her as more than just a familiar face; she is an enemy that needs to be chased out of her life. Lia Choi does not need love. Her parent never gave her any, and confessing to her childhood best friend over the summer only caused a fall out. Love has proven to be both unnecessary and a liability, and all Lia needs instead is to do well in college and get into a prestigious research position in the microbiology department. Unfortunately, this turns out to be difficult when her research mentor is also her new roommate who is hell bent on ruining her life. Tension escalates both at home and in the lab, but the more they work together, the more they realize: they have a common goal, and they need each other to achieve that. All they need to do is to open their hearts. Love is hard, but life is harder without love. *** THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS meets DELILAH GREEN DOESN’T CARE; a STEM-oriented college sapphic romance about struggling adults navigating love despite their broken hearts.
