What a unique idea! What if you can find your perfect match by doing a simple mouth swap?  Doing this simple test and paying afterwards for the contact details and you live happily ever after?

 

A scientist found out that you share a special part of your DNA with just one other person on this planet. And this one is your perfect match. Almost immediately after meeting this person you feel the connection and fall in love with them. You just do this little test and the computer finds your other half. It sounds too good to be true. And actually it is. What if you perfect partner is a psychopath? Or the one is of the same sex as you although you were never attracted to the same sex before?

 

At first I was confused to all the characters appearing in alternating chapters. But soon you get to know them and theirs special situation. All of them were informed of their Match recently and all of them have to learn that there is not necessarily a happy ending waiting for them. They all encounter extreme situations. Especially in Jade’s case it is also quite melodramatic. Sometimes a little bit too much. It also shows how this scientific matching alters society. What if you are already in love and think you found your soulmate without taking the test? Everybody in your surrounding expects your relationship to fail because you are not proofed to be the perfect match.

 

There are a lot of interesting ideas in this book. As I mentioned, the situations are extreme and it is a little bit too melodramatic. But it is an easy read with a unusual story. I really enjoyed reading it.
