The True Love Experiment

Listeners return to the setting of The Soulmate Equation as that story’s protagonist’s BFF embarks on a journey to find her One True Love. Best-selling romance author Felicity “Fizzy” Chen has been stuck in a romance rut since her last relationship ended over a year ago. Battling writer’s block, she sorely needs a dose of love—or at least lust. Connor Prince has no clue where to start when his boss tells him to produce a reality TV show instead of his regular documentary. Enter Fizzy and an idea for a show in which she looks for her soulmate. As the two work together, they realize how close their happily ever after is. Cindy Kay and Jonathan Cole narrate alternating chapters from both Fizzy’s and Connor’s points of view. Kay completely captures Fizzy’s personality—flirty, witty, with a tinge of anxiety. Her seamless switches between Fizzy’s and Cole’s accents will keep listeners engaged. Cole’s slightly raspy voice is a pleasure to hear; however, there is little distinction between characters, regardless of gender and age, and his American accents frequently drift into a more British sound.
VERDICT A sexy, fun listen that will be welcomed by the author’s many fans.
