 Jess Davis loves data and statistics; she also spends most of her time with her seven-year-old daughter and has no eye for dating. But a new dating service, GeneticAlly, gives her pause. Can her DNA really predict her soulmate? When she is a 98% match for the company’s founder, River Pena, she can’t believe it; although handsome, River is much too stuck-up for her. Desperate for money, however, Jess agrees to be the face of the company’s success and play up her love match with River for the tabloids. She doesn’t expect to fall for the man behind the statistics, who secretly wants to find love just as much as JessVERDICT With the laugh-out-loud voice that Lauren’s die-hard fans adore, this sweet, charming, and humorous book is a perfect match for readers looking for a low-stakes, high swoon-factor romance, but some readers may have concerns about the ethical implications of DNA-based matchmaking.—Reviewed by Jacqueline Rammer, Lakeview Community Lib., Random Lake, WI , May 1, 2021
