"Combative coworkers on the road trip from hell: one smart, sassy heroine plus one yummy, cantankerous hero multiplied by plenty of misconceptions. Susannah Nix nails the perfect blend of hilarity and sexual tension. I loved it!" —TAMMARA WEBBER, New York Times bestselling author

Adam Cortinas may be gorgeous, but he's made it clear he can't stand Olivia—and the feeling is one hundred percent mutual. Too bad, because in order to bring the company's new power plant online, they're stuck with each other for the next week.

When their travel plans go horribly awry, Olivia finds herself stranded in the middle of nowhere with Adam, AKA the bane of her existence.

He's in her space and in her head. All the forced proximity is driving Olivia insane. That's the only explanation for these FEELINGS she's suddenly having.

But it doesn't change anything. They still hate each other.


Applied Electromagnetism is the fourth full-length novel in a series of standalone rom-coms about women in STEM fields.

I absolutely love the Chemistry Lessons series by Susannah Nix! Every book is spectacular. I love how witty and smart her heroines are. Olivia may her quirks, but she owns them and is resilient. Adam puts on this front of, well, a stubborn, arrogant a$$, but underneath that, he has is own heartbreak and is just trying to protect himself from it happening again. In doing so, he has basically cut himself off from everything and everyone. When they are forced to work on a job together, it seems everything is against them arriving to their destination. During all the delays, they begin to see each other in a new light. The walls begin to crumble, and they truly see each other. I loved the banter, the wit, the deep conversations. The way they start to develop their relationship and open up to each other was beautiful. Susannah Nix has a true gift of bringing her characters to life and making them relatable and personable. They turn into more than just characters in a book, but people you want to know. This is a series you do not want to miss!

I loved this 4th book in the Thermodynamics series by Susannah Nix! Adam and Olivia were very believable coworkers/kind of enemies-to-lovers. Their banter was hilarious and tension off the charts! I loved seeing little bits of past characters from this series that can also be read as stand-alones. Loved it!!

Susannah Nix has done it again. I love this book! The protagonist, Olivia, is intelligent, career-driven, and has rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD). I liked her instantly. I hadn’t heard of RSD before, but Nix made it easy to understand and sympathize with Olivia. Adam is Olivia’s blunt but sexy coworker. After Adam denies Oliva’s request for a work recommendation, they find themselves alone on a work trip. A work trip where the forces of nature are seemingly conspiring against them. Forced to spend several days essentially alone together in a high-stress, high-stakes work trip, Olivia and Adam open up to each other in ways they haven’t opened up to in others. They are obviously attracted to one another but can’t stop themselves from arguing. Their journey from dislike/indifference to love is a sweet and fun ride. The thing I like about Nix’s stories are, yes, the characters have misunderstandings and miscommunications, but they handle them like the adults they are. Therefore, I never get frustrated with the characters or their actions. This book is a prime example of that. If you’re looking for a smart, sweet romance, this is the book for you.

I am new to Susannah Nix's books but I will certainly be reading more! Her Chemistry Lessons series features heroines working in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) careers. How awesome is that?!? The heroine in Applied Electromagnetism is Olivia, an electrical engineer. I absolutely love the way Nix developed Olivia's character through the book. She was so fleshed out that I related to her remarkably well. Olivia receives a work assignment at an off-site location and her coworker for the job is her arch-nemesis (whom she also happens to find pretty hot), Adam. Watching these two banter and get to know each other was awesome! The forced proximity and hate to love tropes are definitely two of my faves! It seems everything that can go wrong on this business trip does and (insert evil laugh here) I loved it! The mishaps, delays, and catastrophes that Adam and Olivia endure through this work assignment propel their relationship in the direction that we're all dying for it to go! ❤️ This book is low on the steam factor (we experience all the build up but then the scene fades to black). I love my steamy scenes and I would have loved more of those moments in this book, but I still loved Applied Electromagnetism. If you don't like much steam in your romantic reads, this book is perfect! I am so thankful to have received an ARC of Applied Electromagnetism and I'm already excited to read through Susannah Nix's other books!

In "Applied Electromagnetism," Olivia Woerner and Adam Cortinas are colleagues forced together on the road trip from hell when they are assigned to work together to bring their company's newly acquired power plant online. I'm a sucker for a good road trip story, and when combined with a dash of office romance and a touch of enemies-to-lovers thrown in for good measure, the result is delightful. Adam and Olivia make for incredibly likeable, endearingly awkward, and relatable protagonists, and I loved watching them get to know each other better and slowly come to realize that they are perfect for each other. Their banter is a lot of fun and provides quite a number of laugh-out-loud moments over the course of the story. Overall, I loved this book and can't recommend it (and the rest of Susannah Nix's books) highly enough. *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Wow. I laughed. I cried. I laughed while crying and cried while laughing. As you might have already guessed, I found this story to be a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. I love Olivia, just like I’ve loved every one of the heroines in this series. I can so easily relate to these geeky, socially awkward nerd-girls. They are totally my people. It was really, really easy to dislike Adam at first. I was Team Olivia all the way, so I was one hundred percent behind her desire to inflict bodily harm on him. I loved watching him open up to Olivia, becoming more real, more human. I both love and hate that we don’t get the chance to live in our hero’s head. I crave knowing what’s going through Adam’s thoughts, but I don’t think it would be quite the same story if we weren’t experiencing Olivia’s angst at not knowing what’s going to happen next. And speaking of “what happens next?”, I can’t wait to see who the next couple to fall will be. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book from the author.

Road Trip from Hell! If it could go wrong it did on this fantastic funny road trip from hell. Loved Olivia’s sass and how Adam brought her sass out when she was determined to keep her true self tapped down at work. Loving the ladies in these Chemistry Lessons books!

***I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*** To be more accurate, I basically begged for an ARC of this book because I Love (capital L Love) everything this author has written, and I not so patiently await new-release dates. This book, thankfully, didn't disappoint. Adam and Olivia are coworkers who intensely dislike each other and end up stranded together on a business trip. As they spend more time together, they actually begin to enjoy the bickering and actually start to like and respect each other. I know this sounds like a common romance book theme - and I read a lot of them, so I'm aware it is - BUT the wonderful differences are what makes this book (and really every other one of her books) worth reading. As you can probably guess by the title, Applied Electromagnetism, the heroine of our story is intelligent. I truly enjoy reading stories where the author isn't afraid to make the female lead smart. And not just tell us she's smart, but actually have the level of writing reflect this. (I'm not saying you need an advanced degree to read it, just that it's very witty.) I also love the fact that although Olivia has had a crush on Adam for years, she doesn't act like a love-struck idiot who will put up with being treated badly; she stands up for herself. And Adam, while definitely being a swoon-worthy book boyfriend, has faults and makes missteps; however, he owns up to them and apologizes. I LOVE this aspect. Sometimes, to me, books fall a bit flat when the male (or female) lead only realizes his faults at the end of the story and does some huge romantic gesture to make up for it (don't worry, there's a romantic gesture and you'll love it). Adam, on the other hand, actively listens and evolves into a better person throughout the book. Finally, this is a romantic comedy that is actually funny. The banter between the leads is fabulous and doesn't feel at all forced, which I so greatly appreciate. I actually found myself smiling through most of the book...and, really, can you ask for more than that? If you haven't read any of this author's books, what are you waiting for?? If you have, you already know the great read you have in store, and you're not going to be disappointed.

OMG - I absolutely adored this book! Olivia grabbed my heart right away with her anxiety about her career and the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated field, and then Adam, however gorgeous, comes off as a total jerk, and I thought - well, that’s it. I hope there’s another hero in this book because I’d NEVER forgive that! …Except that of course I did, and that’s because of the way Nix writes and the humanity of these characters, and suddenly you see things from a different perspective, and it melts your heart. I had so much in common with Olivia, and while Adam learns from Olivia, I felt like I was learning with her from Adam: maybe I don’t always have to carry a sewing kit around “in case.” Maybe I don’t have to carry one around in case someone *else* needs a sewing kit…. I love road trip rom coms (my favorite type of Romance book!!), and this had all the fun of one of those trips where everything that can go wrong does, and there’s just the right balance of seriously high stakes and comedy. A sheer delight from beginning to end!
