Sophie Jones is a physics prodigy on track to unlock the secrets of the universe. But when she meets Jake Kristopher during their first week at Yale they instantly feel a deep connection, as if they’ve known each other before. Quickly, they become a couple. Slowly, their love lures Sophie away from school. 

When a shocking development forces Sophie into a new reality, she returns to physics to make sense of her world. She grapples with life’s big questions, including how to cope with unexpected change and loss. Inspired by her connection with Jake, Sophie throws herself into her studies, determined to prove that true loves belong together in all realities.

Spanning decades, The Love Proof is an unusual love story about lasting connection, time, and intuition. It explores the course that perfect love can take between imperfect people, and urges us to listen to our hearts rather than our heads.


Rating: 2 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

Jake and Sophie. They fell in love fast and hard until one day, they left each other. But, no matter what, they would always find each other, no matter if time goes by or no time at all. But, when Sophie’s passion for physics and world revelations dwindles, she must choose between her love for Jake or her love for physics.

I gave The Love Proof two stars, not really a fan of the plot point. While I am a big fan of books, I’m not a fan of the fact that Sophie sort of gave up on her love of physics to pursue her relationship with Jake. Why couldn’t she have pursued love and pursued her education? I also found their relationship lacking emotion. That first love and instant connection just seemed too stiff and not enough emotion seemed to be put into the relationship.

I found that Jake and Sophie after leaving each other, their relationship benefited from them breaking up. While that initial romance was good and strong and they both had each other, them coming back to each other many many years later didn’t seem to work out. One of the issues that really stuck with me is the “one or the other” situation. “You can have Jake but not physics” situation or the “you can have physics but not Jake” situation. It irks me that Sophie just suddenly lost interesting in physics the moment she started a relationship with Jake. Passion isn’t gone in an instant. It’s slow and fizzes out. You don’t find something and immediately forget about why you loved it.

The Love Proof was just too unrealistic for me to really enjoy it and during my read through, it just wasn’t very interesting for me to get into it. And although Sophie is a genius, she just was a little immature for most of the book and I couldn’t like The Love Proof.

Thank you again to NetGalley and Atria Books for inviting me to read The Love Proof in exchange for an honest review and for providing me with an eARC.
