(Synopsis) The smoking-hot one-night stand I was never supposed to see again? 

Yeah, well, I might be pregnant, and he’s my OB-GYN.

Like all the other installments in Kendall Ryan's Roommates series before it, The Soul Mate was a fun, sexy, easy read. Sometimes you just need a book like that - one that captures your attention right away, isn't too heavy or drama-laden, and isn't tome length so that you can finish it in one lazy day. Every book in this series is like that, including The Soul Mate. 

Bren is a woman that I took turns loving and being incredibly frustrated with. I love her job as a zoologist. She's awesome with animals, and I enjoyed when she would tell Mason all these interesting facts about the animals she takes care of. But, conversely, she has serious commitment issues that cause her to miss all the wonderful things that are right in front of her. 

She's not opposed to one-night stands. Hence - her one amazing night with Mason. But, as you can imagine, when she suspects she might be pregnant a few weeks later, she reaches epic freak-out levels. This is way more commitment than she ever wanted. Luckily, there's no chance she can hide it from Mason (which is a HUGE bookish pet peeve of mine), since a weird chance of fate makes Mason her OB-GYN. 

Where Bren might be completely opposed to creating ties to another person, but Mason is convinced his one perfect person is out there, and he wants to find her. In fact, after his one night with Bren, he's sure it's her. When she shows up at his practice wanting a pregnancy test, he's even more positive. But, she throws up roadblocks left and right, and Mason looks for any way possible to get to know her. 

Bren's commitment to being commitment free got on my nerves at times. Mason was so amazing and incredibly patient with her. He's sweet and attentive. Even when things in his own life get distracting, he stays the course when it comes to Bren, but she is such a tough nut to crack. I get why she has the hangups she does, but how many times does one person need to show you kindness and goodness and sexiness before you learn to trust?

Despite my frustrations with Bren, I loved how her relationship with Mason developed and how they slowly learned to trust each other with the good stuff and the hard stuff. It was a good way to spend my day.
