Book Review – The One by John Marrs @johnmarrs1 #BookReview #BookBlogger #suspense

This was one kick-ass of a book. A gene discovered and matched would tell you who your soul mate was – The one you are supposed to spend your life with.

2 million people and more went through this test. It broke a lot of marriages, and it brought together many of them. This was a story of 5 such matched ones.

John Marrs is a fantastic author, he can go beyond all realms to write a story which is as fantastical as it is thrilling. Having read The Passengers in the last few days, I knew I had to read this book. The story brought out the truth of human nature as well as the hidden longing.

The 5 love stories of matched couples had its own suspense because in every one of them, all was not as it seemed. I was quite in awe at the way the author twisted the stories to make them wicked. I couldn’t stop reading till 4am as I had to know how it all ended.

Oh my, what a thrilling ride which brought a deliciously evil smile in my face and a rush to my thriller-y heart.

One of my fab midnight reads.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

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…
