Review ❤️ Below Zero by Ali Hazelwood

July 6, 2022


It will take the frosty terrain of the Arctic to show these rival scientists that their chemistry burns hot.

Mara, Sadie, and Hannah are friends first, scientists always. Though their fields of study might take them to different corners of the world, they can all agree on this universal truth: when it comes to love and science, opposites attract and rivals make you burn…
Hannah’s got a bad feeling about this. Not only has the NASA aerospace engineer found herself injured and stranded at a remote Arctic research station—but the one person willing to undertake the hazardous rescue mission is her longtime rival.
Ian has been many things to Hannah: the villain who tried to veto her expedition and ruin her career, the man who stars in her most deliciously lurid dreams…but he’s never played the hero. So why is he risking everything to be here? And why does his presence seem just as dangerous to her heart as the coming snowstorm?

is injured and stranded on a remote work assignment. She thinks it is game over but she is rescued by the one man she can’t stand. Ian and Hannah have a long past and they must figure out to move forward.

I liked this one better than the last story but it still felt off. Hannah is a hard character to like. She is very rude and crass. She kept pushing people away from her. Mara and Sadie were lucky she liked them. The thing is that the author never really gave me a full understanding on why Hannah was like that. She had no real reasons to push Ian away each time but she did and expected him to have sex with her. Just an odd concept for a woman to be so smart and logical. I didn’t care for her at all and thought Ian could have done better.

However, the chemistry between was intense. It just happens to be purely sexual. They have known each other five years prior to the present day and met up multiple times. Each time it was so much sexual tension. I was waiting for the romantic emotions to pull in. They barely knew each other outside of that sexual pull.

I loved that Hannah was a boss chick and knew what she wanted in her career. Ian being nerdy and top of the food chain made him sexy. I just wished that the characters had time to be developed more. They didn’t change from the first time they met despite a minor miscommunication between them.

Overall, a light read for fans of geeky romances.
