Raised by her grandparents—who now help raise her seven-year-old daughter, Juno—Jess has been left behind too often to feel comfortable letting anyone in.

    I'm a huge Christina Lauren fan, and this is one of their best! It's such an interesting premise — a genetics-based dating app — and the chemistry between the main characters is off the charts. I stayed up way past my bedtime to keep reading this one. ...more

    I got to read this early, and all I’m going to say is that C and Lo are amazing at what they do. This book gave me so many emotions, lovable characters, and enough nerd love to make my science-loving butt happy. Do yourself a favor and PLEASE read it.

    Best book of 2021, already calling it. ✨

    This is it. This is the book I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been on a string of duds lately, and this book was just SO happy, fun, uplifting, and LAUGH OUT LOUD funny. Christina Lauren usually never disappoint and I enjoyed this one so much more than there last book; it’s possibly my new favorite of there works.

    This book just had such a great story, and allll of the characters were fun and so well developed. Fizzy is my favorite CLo character now by far. Fizzy and Jess are friendship goals. I coul

    This is a rounded up 3.5 stars, because I'm always going to round up a Christina Lauren book. The things this book has going for it are many:

    1) A love interest who is compared to Keanu Reeves repeatedly.
    2) A best friend I believe in.
    3) Science nerdiness as foreplay.
    4) A cute kid who is recognizably 7 and not moppet-like precocious.
    5) An allusion to Mia from the Wild Seasons books!
    6) Good, solid chemistry between the protagonists, but it's earned - it takes a while to get there but I believe in e

    Sounds like The One. Which I loved. But I obviously expect this one to be more romance and less thriller.

    Oh my heart.

    Y'all this is might be my favorite CLo book.

    The realness of characters is my favorite part. The single mom struggle was so real. The incorporating of a child into the storytelling added so many layers.

    Fizzy and Jess are friendship goals.

    Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    A single mom holding it together the best she can (whose attention is) divided by an adorably precocious kid plus a scientist who looks like Keanu Reeves trying to get to the (square) root of DNA's role in compatibility equals a delightful romance. Forced dating is not a trope I often enjoy, but it was very well done and the consequential relationship hiccups felt natural given the parameters. Bonus points to the world's best best friend -- Fizzy

    I loved the science, the statistics, the storyline...but most of all, I loved Jess and River. They are both such awesome characters on their own, but together they are better than 98% of all other book couples!
    Love starting the new year as a crying, snotty mess 😭

    This was okay. The chemistry between the love interests was great but the premise of the story was ludicrous and the tension felt forced.

    Thanks to Gallery and NetGalley for this eARC.

    This was cute! Jess, a single mom and freelance statistician and River, one of the founders and scientists in a new dating company based on genetics are matched by the algorithm - at the diamond level, which is almost unheard of. This is kind of a P&P retelling River and Jess need some time to get over their first impressions, even after their impressive match numbers. I LOVED the side characters. Juno, Jess's daughter, and Fizzy, her best friend, ar

    Honestly, I'd give this one 3 stars based on its current format. There were lots of weirdly repetitive words (so many laughs were choked out, so much wincing happened), and some typos.

    BUT, it won't get published for six full months, and the actual story was lovely, so I'm hoping they'll fix those things in editing in the next six months!

    I did love the synchronicity of Jessica, the main character, having a 7 year old named Juno who loves to snuggle, because I am a Jessica, who has a 7 year old J

    OMG did I love this book! I fell head over heels for the characters. I felt for Jess and her struggles as a single mom. I laughed out loud at Fizzy and I need her to be my BFF. Fell in love with River and his shy, dorky, HOTness! And Juno was just a mix of Jess and Fizzy in a tiny 7 year old body. I can not say enough about this book. Buy it! Read it!! You will not be disappointed.

    Review copy courtesy of Edelweiss.

    I am in awe of the Christina Lauren machine that churns out 2 romcoms a year, but honestly although the synopsis of the last few books have been very intriguing, the execution has left me lukewarm. This one especially lost some steam midway through and I had to drag myself to finish it.

    Wowza! I rarely feel like a romance is worthy of Five Stars! However, this book was amazing!!! Laugh out loud funny at times, steamy chemistry and wonderful characters! Can’t wait to hand sell this at the bookstore! Our customers are going to love it!

    I was lucky enough to get an ARC of this book, and while the ending felt a bit rushed and could've used even 50 more pages to really explore what was happening, this was one of the duo's best releases in the last two years. ...more

    I won an ARC copy. This is my first book and 2021 and it was fantastic, I couldn't put it down and read it all in one day. The Soul Equation is so sweet, funny and thoughtful. I loved the science in the book, and that both hero and heroine are hot science nerds. I highly recommend.
