More mini reviews from books I’ve enjoyed to varying degrees over the last few weeks.
The Push by Ashley Audrain
Release Date: January 5, 2021
The Soulmate Experiment by Christina Lauren
Release Date: May 18, 2021
In the Soulmate Equation, we follow freelance analysist Jess Davis as she gets back into the dating game after being matched with Dr. River Pena, the CEO of a revolutionary new Dating App, GeneticAlly, where people are matched on capability based on their DNA. Jess and River’s chemistry is palpable, and they are both struggling with their match and want to make sure their feelings and choices are their own, not dictated by the App and the pressures of a pre-launch in a few months.
Another win in the book came in the form of all the amazing side characters: Fizzy, Jess’ romance novelist best friend, Juno, Jess’ precocious seven year old, and her loving grandparents who are good for a laugh and spoiling Juno. They really rounded out the world and helped ground the light sciencey and math topics in the story.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
Twice Shy by Sarah Hogle
Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 Stars)
Release Date: April 6, 2021
Well this was sufficiently cute. While I couldn’t really related to our main girl, Maybell, (she was a big daydreamer, and I cannot relate) I liked that she had a big heart, a ton of optimism, and a happy and positive outlook. Our hero, Wesley is also a soft, anxious, precious person and I thought he paired with Maybell exceptionally. The two of them growing closer via forced proximity and both learning to stand up for themselves and make assertions in their personal and romantic lives was great to see.
Second First Impressions by Sally Throne
Release Date: April 13, 2021
