While I haven’t read all of their books, this may be my favorite. Jess Davis is a single Mom and can’t find the energy to date. Her and her best friend are thrown into a chance to have their DNA tested to find their soulmate. Is this a hoax when Jess is matched up with the founder River with their highest scored match ever? As a statistician she is skeptical, but with a chance to earn some much needed cash, she is willing to test their compatibility.
Does this book reinvent the rom com genre? No, but it stays within its lane perfectly and even adds in some emotional moments. I really did like the DNA plot. I’ve read a few books in the last year trying to do matches based on DNA, but this is my first romance. The plot is usually used in Sci Fi and thrillers. And the authors briefly describe the math behind it, to make it seem possible.
The authors do a good job of making Jess and her cutie pie daughter, Juno, relatable and you just hope for good things to happen to them. You feel for them through their struggles in the book and keep hoping Jess warms to River.
And even the supporting characters are well developed and lovable. I wish I knew Jess’ BFF Fizzy and had Nana and Pops in my corner. My grandparents died before I was an adult, and their storyline made me yearn for them.
I think this is a great romance to start off the summer beach read season. I’d definitely add it to your TBR list.
