The Soulmate Equation

Single mom Jess Davis is a data and statistics wizard, but no amount of number crunching can convince her to step back into the dating world. 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.

But then Jess hears about GeneticAlly, a buzzy new DNA-based matchmaking company that’s predicted to change dating forever. Finding a soulmate through DNA? The reliability of numbers? This Jess understands...until her test shows an unheard-of 98% compatibility with GeneticAlly’s founder, Dr. River Peña. This is one number she can’t wrap her head around, because she already knows Dr. Peña, and that stuck-up, stubborn man is without a doubt not her soulmate. But GeneticAlly is offering to pay her to prove their methods work, and Jess barely is making ends meet; she might just have to put the science to the test.
