Well Suited (Red Lipstick Coalition #4) by Staci Hart

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 impressive. 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.

I've been seeing people talk about how great Staci Hart's books are for a while. So naturally I've been meaning to pick one up but was too intimidated by hype to follow through. But then I was scrolling through KindleUnlimited and stumbled upon Well Suited...and it actually sounded like my kind of thing that I was exactly in the mood for. So I did the thing--I downloaded it and gave it a try. And while it wasn't a new favorite, it was good!

The best thing about this book for me was the tropes. Friends to lovers and surprise pregnancy, both of which done well. They were fun and entertaining and complemented Kate and Theo's dynamic in a way that kept me caring about the book even when I knew it wasn't going to be a fav.

I really liked Theo and Kate. Theo is a kind, understanding guy with top notch patience. Really, his patience was perfect. And of course that was exactly what Kate needed. I liked Kate too. She was such a smart, interesting character. And together, Theo and Kate made the perfect pair--they (and by they I mean Kate) just needed time to see and accept it.

But while there isn't much I can pinpoint and say I did not like about Well Suited, you may notice I'm not exactly sitting here raving either. For me this was one of those books that was good and I liked it, but it was kind of forgettable. I'm not going to be rushing to re-read it, nor am I really itching to pick up other books in this series. Not to say that I won't, but this particular book didn't really leave a prominent mark on my mind.

Overall, Well Suited was a good book full of tropes that were my cup of tea. And though I liked it, it ended up being a forgettable read. I guess this one just didn't mesh as well with me as it could have.

3 stars - Great tropes & cute romance, but not a fav for me.
