A Wall Street Journal Best Science Fiction Book of 2018

“Just try to put this gripping thriller down once you pick it up.” —AARP

“A shock on every other page.” —Wall Street Journal

How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.

I really enjoyed this book. I don’t usually read thrillers and this one kept my interest the entire book. Loved all the twists for each story line. Nick/Alex and Jude/Kevin/Mark were my favorite characters and I loved how their stories turned out. All the other storylines were great though. I felt the worst for Maddy as her storyline was kinda sad. Though I hated the casual racist remark about potentially being matched with someone black…..completely unnecessary and just disappointing.

Give it a chance!

Kept me entertained the whole time! Each story life made me feel like I was a part of their life. I couldn’t put the book down. Easy to read and worth your time. Check it out

Great Read!

I was absolutely on the edge of my seat throughout the story. (I’d seen and enjoyed the show as well, but hadn’t connected it with this book.) I would love to see a “Machine of Death” style short story anthology set in this world-so many ripe possibilities for interesting stories.
