“Match Your DNA” was started about ten years ago, with the premise that we all have a genetic match. All we need is our DNA to find The One. Send for a DNA kit, and they will send you the results for only ten pounds. Five different people have just met their match, but sometimes things aren’t what they seem, and even your perfect mate will have secrets or won’t be what you expected. Follow along with Jade, Ellie, Christopher, Nick, and Mandy as they meet their match and see how far they are willing to go to be with their soul mate.

This book was amazing! I want to give more details in the summary, but I really can’t without giving away spoilers. The premise of this book is so incredibly interesting. It makes you wonder what would really happen if this was possible. The writing was fantastic. Each chapter was from one of the five characters’ viewpoints, but it never came across as disjointed. You could easily follow the storyline, and it was very easy to get sucked up into it. The characters themselves had depth, grabbing hold of you and bringing you along for the ride.

I feel like this book could be more accurately described as a science-fiction story with psychological overtones. It wasn’t as much of a thriller, but I didn’t find that disappointing at all. As I said before, this book really grabs ahold of you and doesn’t let go. It is definitely impossible to put it down. I definitely recommend this book to anyone–just be forewarned that there are sex scenes, though not graphic, and quite a bit of murder. The plot idea itself is more than worth your time. It’s already a word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom; let’s make it one here too.

Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
