The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren 

Hello readers,

I was in need of a good romantic book and while I was scrolling in Instagram, I found some posts about the Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren.

If you don’t know, Christina Lauren is the combined pen name of two long-time writing partners/best friends Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings. They have a lot of books published and some of the most well-know are the Beautiful Bastard series and who can forget The Unhoneymooners? I talked about that book a few months ago, click here if you want to read about it.

I was ready to fall in love with a new romance and The Soulmate Equation came in the right time!

I love this book! It was a fun reading – it has science, which I always like in a book and romance! The female leader was strong and thought in a rational and smart way! The concept of the data base dating app and the 98% match along with the couples chemistry made me a slave to its reading. I finished it in record time, but you know when you finish a book and you are happy about it but at the same time you are sad that it’s over? Yeah, totally me with this book!

It took a while for the relationship between the characters to develop but once it did, wow hot! It was also nice to see the support system Jess had – her grandparents and her friend Fizzy (which we need a book about her ASAP) – and how they help her, a single mother resigning her daughter. 

The Soulmate Equation has some twists that I wasn’t expecting, and it was interesting because normally with this type of books (contemporary romance) we feel that we know exactly what it’s coming and then boom! Surprise! Love it! Looooveeee it!

It was predictable but a surprise! 

River was such a good character, I didn’t like him in the beginning but ended the book wanting him for me! Jess was amazing! She’s strong, and charismatic! A great heroin with a well written past. I don’t have kids and I love my mother (she’s the best) but I immediately connected with her and her family story. I don’t know why. I think the authors created a  character so lovable and with thoughts and ways of behaving that are so lovable that we can see ourselves in her. 

I don’t want to go into it too much because I feel it will detract from the enjoyment of discovering for yourself how good this book is, so I will end this post with the synopsis of The Soulmate Equation from Goodreads. Let me know what you think about it.

“Single mom Jess Davis is a data and statistics wizard, but no amount of number crunching can convince her to step back into the dating world. After all, her father was never around, her hard-partying mother disappeared when she was six, and her ex decided he wasn’t “father material” before her daughter was even born. Jess holds her loved ones close but working constantly to stay afloat is hard…and lonely.

But then Jess hears about GeneticAlly, a buzzy new DNA-based matchmaking company that’s predicted to change dating forever. Finding a soulmate through DNA? The reliability of numbers:This Jess understands.

At least she thought she did, until her test shows an unheard-of 98 percent compatibility with another subject in the database: GeneticAlly’s founder, Dr. River Peña. This is one number she can’t wrap her head around, because she already knows Dr. Peña. The stuck-up, stubborn man is without a doubt not her soulmate. But GeneticAlly has a proposition: Get ‘to know him and we’ll pay you. Jess—who is barely making ends meet—is in no position to turn it down, despite her skepticism about the project and her dislike for River. As the pair are dragged from one event to the next as the “Diamond” pairing that could launch GeneticAlly’s valuation sky-high, Jess begins to realize that there might be more to the scientist—and the science behind a soulmate—than she thought.”

After finishing post, I feel like I need to read The Holidaze as soon as possible! I have it in my iPad since last year and I feel this is the right time to do it!

Let me know in the comments what is you favorite Christine Lauren book! I would love to now.
