What's a Soulmate?, Lindsey Ouimet

Netgalley copy in exchange for an honest review. 

The Blurb 

Libby Carmichael has just met her Soulmate. It’s just too bad he’s behind bars.

When you only see the world in black and white until you meet yours, it's pretty simple to figure out when you’ve found your Soulmate. What Libby can't figure out is why fate/destiny/the powers-that-be have decided that Andrew McCormack is her one, true match. Libby is smart, organized, and always has a plan for what's coming next. So when she sees Andrew for the first time and her world is instantly filled with color, she's thrown for a loop.

Namely because he's in a dingy grey jumpsuit.

And handcuffs.

And being booked into a juvenile detention facility.

Surely a boy who's been convicted of a headline-making, violent crime isn't the person she’s meant to be with. There's no way she belongs with someone like that... Right?

My Thoughts

Hold your horses:
  1. The cover is outstanding.
  2. I love this book.
I’m a sucker for a good romance that will make my heart beat madly and will left me grinning like a fool. This book is everything I was expecting, and more. 

I love the main idea of soulmates. I think it is a beautiful theme, and it was handled beautiful. The descritions of the world are written incredibly well, and the words are full of poetry and wonders. 

Libby, the main character, is a strong and wise young woman, and she’s so loveable that I would love for her to be my best friend. I loved how she analyses everything and sees the world, and how much importance she gives to details. She’s witty, clever and flawed, and that makes her a perfect main character, in my opinion. 

The story was intense, fast-paced and realistic, and I could not put the book down. Libby and Andrew have a perfect connection, and the dialogues are snappy and witty and perfect. 

One of my favourite moments in this story were the processes in which the characters got acquainted with colours, and they truly feel like a character in themselves. I found it incredibly beautiful and raw. Somehow, it made me realise that we need to appreciate the little things of life.
I loved it, it was a rollercoaster of emotions, I could not stop reading and I loved the ending, so I don’t see why you wouldn’t want to read this book!
