The Soulmate Equation Summary
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.

The Soulmate Equation Reviews
3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly not a balanced equation
Reviewed in the United States on May 19, 2021
I am sad to give this 3 stars. I’d give it 3.5, but the ‘Zon doesn’t allow it. Let me preface this by saying I could not wait for May 18. I preordered. I have read everything by CLo. Love them. Love the laughter. Love the sizzle. Love the charm. So I was primed and ready for Soulmate Equation. It just never really grabbed me. They seem to have really toned down their trademark sizzle. The build up/ set up took too long. The complicating factor was so complicated in its explanation (I don’t want to give anything away), that my eyes glazed over. It bored me when I should have been most engaged. And then the resolution of that arc just lacked punch for me. I didn’t feel their characters’ usual chemistry, except in a few places. I didn’t laugh out loud as I’m accustomed to doing with CLo novels. I didn’t feel the heat (although the first kiss was a lovely scene). I really debated about writing this review, but since I’ve loved everything else they’ve written so much, I thought I owed it other potential readers. If you love CLo, you may still want to purchase this. If you haven’t read their other work, don’t let this one deter you. They are immensely talented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun premise
Reviewed in the United States on May 21, 2021
Jess is a single mother working as a freelance statistician when her best friend signs her up for a new dating service that finds matches by DNA algorithms. She is matched at 98% with the head of the company, Dr. River Pena, a man she’s met previously and dislikes though she admits he’s good-looking. Still, she needs money and the company offers her enough to try dating the scientist.
It’s a fun premise where DNA predicts the likelihood of a long-term romance. Once they get past their initial dislike for the other, Jess and River have a lot in common. I like that there was a slow build. I also liked how much River got along with Juno, Jess’s adorable daughter. There are some misunderstandings and some chicanery, but I was pleased with the ending. A good and quick read.
2.0 out of 5 stars Could not hold my interest
Reviewed in the United States on May 29, 2021
The book dragged. I abandoned it 35% of the way into the story and it took me over a week to get that far. During that week, I read 2 interesting books. I read Love and Other Words by the authors and didn’t put it down. This book is dull, the characters are not even remotely credible and I did not care for, or about either of them.
Enemies to lovers can be done well if the initial conflict is meaningful. Jess disliked River because he came into the coffee shop at the same time each morning, got his coffee, and left without making conversation with anyone. I bet that thousands of working people do that daily and are unaware that it would spark dislike in an observer. By her own admission. She is disheveled and unkempt, why would a busy executive want to seek her out on his way to work?
Jess is neither credible as a mother, nor as a love interest for River, the stingy tipper who also muscles her out of a parking space and refuses to hold the elevator for her.
I was drawn by the DNA match premise, that is the interesting core of the story. Biological science meets romance, and probability statistics are thrown in for good measure. The characters were not sufficiently well-developed enough to support that story.
5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked yet again
Reviewed in the United States on May 23, 2021
I have a thing for Christina Lauren’s writing . They seem to hit the right notes this reader needs at the time she’s reading their books . Yes- Soulmate Equation is no exception. I really really liked it — all the characters- the storyline – the conflict – all of it . River is a fave of mine although admittedly-these ladies write lots of fave boyfriends—
I had doubts simply because of the title and premise – was not sure I could keep up with any science or if I even wanted to .
I needed a good read this week as life as a teacher was reaching peak challenges – I simply just dove in. And so glad I did . I was hooked on it from the girl friend angle to the writing in a coffee shop and yes – even the “stats”. I even really really loved the ups and downs and misunderstandings- which , for me- need to be real and not just dumb –
This was simply a good book – a great solid time – a nice feeling after the read and a definite want – desire to re read .
In fact I am still basking in the warmth of River and Jess
