Modern romance novels are my weakness – seriously, I’m addicted to drama, anticipation, flirtation, sex, and happiness forever – and Christina Lauren’s novels never fail to delight. Comprised of writer / best friend duo Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings, Christina Lauren is the bestselling author of 27 books and recently published the The soul mate equation, which stuck in my head for days after reading it.

She’s working on independent stats (and gossip with her best friend Fizzy), and River comes in every day at 8:24 am to order an Americano, complain about everyone, and leave. So when Jess submits her DNA to matchmaking company GeneticAlly and is matched with one of its founders, she’s definitely not happy that he’s a cranky cafe guy. Surely he can’t be her soul mate, can he?
