About this deal

Once you understand how impactful soulmate relationships can be, it’s easier to see how they can help our lives. Even though soulmate relationships can be painful, they always help us to grow and to evolve. From the soul’s perspective, all of our soulmates are here for our good. From a soul level, they only want to help us to succeed. Gabe has talked people off that ledge more than once. In fact it has happened so often they've even received coaching from the local police on the proper steps to take when they encounter a possible jumper.

Soulmates by Holly Bourne (9781409557500/Paperback

Then the ending happened. And I was... quite shook? Really disturbed? Disappointed? Angry? All of them at once and more? Two interesting POVs and the Then and Now format give readers the full story. I enjoy this for the most part but the reveal and ending were sort of eh for me. I know most friends love this one so I'm definitely an outlier. I mostly enjoy this so I think you should try it to find out for yourself. Honestly, I almost wish there was more angst, which is kinda insane to say, and not something that usually comes out of my mouth! Nonetheless, with the power of Asian parents, a hint of the pressure that Korean idols and actors face in the industry, and some appropriately dramatic scenes, this book successfully filled all the necessities of the perfect kdrama book!!Basically, the plot just reminded me of the famous line from one of Walter Scott’s plays: "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!" The whole book can be summed up in this quote, because that is what every single character does till we reach The End. Featuring ~ dual timeline ~ now and then & before and after, suicide, infidelity, mental illness, short chapters Pippa is horrified, of course, but what confuses her is that it LOOKS to her like the victim didn't take a leap...and Gabe's chat with the female stranger seemed different than most. The police determine the jump was indeed a suicide, but the victim's husband is adamant that his wife would NEVER have intentionally ended her life. Pippa then learns that the stranger wasn't exactly a stranger to Gabe...and that final conversation may have been a far cry from helpful. Could the perfect man, the man she knows inside and out, her very best friend be hiding a secret so dark, so dangerous, that it was worth dying for....or even worth KILLING for?

Thanks to Sally Hepworth, St Martin's Press, Macmillan Audio and NetGalley for the ARC and audio copy. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review*I would absolutely recommend Hepworth's work to anyone who enjoys twisted Domestic Dramas with enough scandals, lies and secrets to keep your head spinning. Could Pippa see things from different perspective? Even though the woman’s death is ruled as suicide, there’s something rattling Pippa that she cannot put finger on! But then Nate does what everyone else in Hannah’s life seems to do—he leaves her, claiming they have nothing in common. He and all her friends are newly obsessed with K-pop and K-dramas, and Hannah is not. After years of trying to embrace the American part and shunning the Korean side of her Korean American identity to fit in, Hannah finds that’s exactly what now has her on the outs. It’s a very clever dual narrative mostly from Pippa’s past and present POV, but also from the victim Amanda’s past and present POV AFTER her death. It was extra fun to see things from her now omniscient perspective! They are pleasant to be around. You feel safe and able to be your authentic self around kindred spirits.

Kindred spirits are those that we connect to on a personality level rather than soul level. Here are some common qualities of kindred spirits: First off, let me just say that if you don’t believe in reincarnation, you’re probably going to have a hard time buying into the idea of soul groups. So you may just want to stop reading this article right now. However, if you believe in past lives, then this may be a concept that you can get with. I guessed every single twist...not because I am savvy but because it was so damn predictable...all I knew that it had to be both ridiculous and unbelievable...I only did not get the final cliffhanger (hint hint) and when my poor reading eyes read it I actually laughed out loud...like severely. Be still my failing heart. And here’s another interesting thing. The same soulmate who is a lover in this life might have been your best friend or a sibling in another life. Our soulmates play different roles in each lifetime. So the idea that your soulmate is a romantic partner who was also a romantic partner in all of your past lives is probably not true. Soulmates compared to other types of relationshipsSecond, it was very slow-paced and the story didn’t really make sense to me most of the time. There were a lot of scenes that aren’t needed in the story and are just waste of time. I was almost done with the book and I can’t still find any logical explanations as to why things on the book happened. The book could have been better. It was sci-fi, yes but it didn’t feel it. It was more of a contemporary young adult romance with twisted parts that science can’t explain—like a natural phenomenon. I wish she just made the book shorter because it was like 95% of boredom and 5% of awesomeness, and it wasn’t even that awesome, and it annoys the hell out of me. The plot twist wasn’t that catchy simply because it was revealed late. I just scanned and struggled to finish the book because I want it done already because it didn’t work out for me. The dialogues are also sometimes idiotic. Like, if I am talking to someone of my generation (say, my husband or my friend), why would I say something like “We didn’t have the internet then’ or ‘That was before social media’? Don’t they know it, duhhhh!
