I could feel braincells dieing as I read this

I'm absolutely baffled this is a NYT best seller. If I read one more sentence about how tall and broad he is or how she can survive off of nothing but vitamin gummies and a pack of gum for days at a time, I'm using this as kindling.
Then the author throws in some light science terms to try and make it less demeaning and twee. It didn't work.
I cringe so much it causes physical pain every time there is a heavy handed ridiculous forced romance scene. Which is EVERY PAGE.
I'm 200 pages in and there is zero plot, which would be fine if there was beautiful writing, a slow burn storyline, character building. Literally anything salvageable. But there is not. It's just oh no! They have to kiss, or cuddle or rub lotion on each other in public because they are fake dating and if they don't no one will believe them!!!! Ridiculous.
