Summer of Love Buddy Read 1: The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren {Stephanie’s Review}


The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren has 100% put this author duo on my autobuy list. I had pre-ordered The Soulmate Equation on Audible and had the hardcover coming too. I read In a Holidaze back in December and it automatically hit my holiday annual reading list. I had high hopes for this story as well.

I was able to really identify with Jess. I found her inability to trust herself or the happiness that she was starting to find with River uncomfortably familiar. Unlike Jess I haven’t had only myself to rely on or a child to raise. It didn’t mean that I couldn’t empathize with her situation.

River was also easy to like. At first he seemed anti-social and an automaton. But it turned out that his mind was frequently busy and in other places. River certainly had a lot on his plate.

That doesn’t mean that there weren’t frustrating moments. I know that a lot of people (including myself) get frustrated when problems or issues can be resolved with frank conversation. I also know myself well enough to know that I have trouble with those conversations so why would I expect better from a character?

Lauren writes a beautiful love story that involves both math and science and my nerdy little heart couldn’t have been happier with both aspects of the story. I also really enjoyed the way that River and Jess had to build their relationship from the ground up together, in front of an audience, with Jess’s daughter Juno, both of their families and friends all on the peripheral and in the fallout if it didn’t work.

It was a lot of fun to read The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren with Lenore and Lillian! Make sure to check out their reviews today as well!

    1. It really was in the best possible way!!


  1. Fantastic review! I love the nerdy and business aspects. I listened to the audio and also gave it 5 hearts. The author is a must read for me too.


    1. Thank you!! Honestly I wasn’t sure if those aspects would work but they really appealed to me. I’m going to read whatever they put out from now on. No questions asked.
