Libby Carmichael has just met her Soulmate. It's just too bad he's behind bars. When you only see the world in black and white until you meet yours, it's pretty easy to figure out when you've found your Soulmate. What Libby can't figure out is why fate, destiny, or the powers that be have decided that Andrew McCormack is her one, true match. Libby is smart, organized, and always has a plan for what's coming next. So when she sees Andrew for the first time and her world is instantly filled with color, she's thrown for a loop. Namely because he's in a dingy grey jumpsuit. And handcuffs. And being booked into a juvenile detention facility. Surely a boy who's been convicted of a headline-making, violent crime isn't who she's meant to be with. There's no way she belongs with someone like that...right?

 

Review:

“What’s A Soulmate?” is a contemporary romance with one of the most unique premises I have ever read in the genre.

The world of the book remains in black and white until a person finds their soulmate, at which point everything turns to color.  As you can imagine, that is quite disorienting and the author does a great job of showing the types of sensory challenges something like that could present.  It’s also how I’ve found love to feel.  Everything looks different when you’re with “the one.”

Unfortunately for the main character, Libby, she meets Andrew at possibly the worst time in the worst place imaginable.  Her meeting her soulmate in juvenile detention presents for a plot full of challenges.  The dialogue is snappy and there is a lot of humor mixed in with the seriousness of the situation.

I recommend “What’s a Soulmate” for anyone looking for a unique young adult romance that is steamy without being too over-the-top.  I enjoyed it a lot and would love to get something from Andrew’s point-of-view sometime.
