Synopsis from Goodreads
Chemistry is my love language.
I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.
And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.
I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.
When: approximately five weeks ago.
Who: one night stand.
How: prophylactic malfunction.
The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.
Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.
And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.
I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.
But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.
And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.
Katherine is utterly adorable, in a lot of ways she reminded me of Janie in Neanderthal Seeks Human. Plus Katherine is a LIBRARIAN – how could I not love her.
Katherine’s upbringing was a little unconventional to say the least, which has resulted in Katherine requiring routine, order and structure in her life. A role she took upon herself to fulfil from a very young age, resulting in the feeling of being emotional drained by other people. A true introvert requiring solitude in order to replenish her emotional wells. Unfortunately, the control Katherine has had to exert over her life has resulted in her also believing she is unable to sustain relationships. The consequence of which is akin to a self-fulfilling prophecy and reinforces the emotional; walls Katherine has built around her heart.
Theo is a total sweetheart, I loved how he challenged gender stereotypes with his dreams of marriage and a family. Although the latter is achieved prior to the former when Katherine becomes pregnant following a one-night stand. I adored the way Theo held firm to his belief that he and Katherine were ‘well suited’ beyond the bedroom. His patience and unwavering affection added to his overall appeal, beyond his hotness, it is his heart that truly shines.
Everyone has a story to tell and that is apparent with the family situations of both Theo and Katherine. It also shows how much the way in which we, as humans, are influenced via the way in which we are brought up whether it is to be like our parents or completely different.
It is Katherine’s character development and the slow but sure way in which Theo is able to break through her barriers that take Well Suited beyond your typical romance.
Well Suited is a fantastic conclusion to the Red Lipstick Coalition series with each of member of the friendship group having achieved their goals and gained their happily ever afters. Remember red lipstick can change your life 💋💄
