The Soul Mate by Kendall Ryan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Didn’t quite meet my expectations
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😳🤬😏🤓
The heroine: Bren – she doesn’t believe in relationships. Her parents had been deeply in love and after her father died, her mother fell into a deep depression and has been miserable ever since. She is determined not to let that happen to her.
The Hero: Mason – a hot, sexy OB-GYN. He is looking for his soul mate. His parents have a love that has lasted and they set an example that he wants for himself. He dates quite a bit but has yet to find “the one”.
The Story: Of the four books, this one has my favorite premise. I love the pregnant from a one-night stand trope where a couple has to get to know each other because they will be parents and end up falling for each other.
Thought this one is a bit different in that they decide to not to find out the results of her pregnancy test for a month in order to get to know each other and see if the connection the felt the night they met persists. Though it seemed a bit weak to me, since Bren initially went to the doctor because of the nausea she was experiencing. Plus that unopened envelope with the test results would be on their minds the entire time. It just didn’t make much sense to me.
I ended up never really getting “in” to the story and I liked it the least of the four books in this series I have read so far. It wasn’t bad and may just be me since I was getting over a migraine when I listened to it. I didn’t like the path it took at one point as well.
The book was told in Dual POV with dual narration and like The Room Mate, the first book in this series, this one was narrated by Jeremy York and Ava Erickson. I love Ava Erickson’s soft and smooth voice and Jeremy York is a good narrator and his voice fit the character of Mason.
