Summary

What if you already met the soul mate you were destined to be with? And you didn't even know it?

After losing her best friend to cancer, Corinne's life is in flux. She has moved back to Chicago, is considering her next career move (or temp job), and has absolutely no time to look for love--until a mysterious dating app called Met suddenly appears on her phone, and with it, an invitation for Corinne to reconnect with four missed connections from her past. One of them, Met says, is her soul mate...

Corinne doesn't believe the app for a second, but when she very quickly finds herself with back-to-back blasts from the past, she'll have to consider if maybe she's wrong about it. The thing is, Corinne's also been introduced to a really great guy outside the app's influence. As their feelings for each other grow, Corinne has to wonder: With her apparent true love still out there, should she tap yes to the next match?

With help from a new group of friends, her loving if annoying family, and maybe a touch of fate, can Corinne come to terms with the loss she's still reeling from, take control of her career, and find love along the way?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Corinne is back in Chicago, moving from temp job to temp job, all the while mourning the loss of her best friend Joelle to cancer. Making friends is tough, and finding a boyfriend is even tougher. Then a persistent app called Met shows up on her phone, unable to be deleted and always sending her push notifications. It promises that she will reconnect with four men from her past, one of whom will be her soul mate. Corinne is not convinced until the app proves true to its word, and she meets men from her past--some great, some not so much--she is forced to think twice. Baker's debut is funny, steamy, and heartwarming all at once, as she wraps together a judgmental family, new friends, and some blasts from the past that probably should have stayed that way. From an elementary school art teacher to a theater buff to a sexy physical therapist, Corinne has her work cut out for her to find her perfect match. A great read that's perfect for those with reunions on the horizon."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Baker's heart-wrenching and addictive debut follows a 27-year-old Black woman as she learns to regain hope and trust in the wake of her best friend's death. After Joelle dies, Cori Evans drives from Houston to their hometown of Chicago. Her car breaks down upon arrival, and while waiting for repairs, she visits her cousin Tiwanda and gets drunk. Later, she finds a dating app on her phone that she doesn't remember installing, and it tells her that her soulmate is one of four people from her past. A series of serendipitous meetings with them ensues. There's Justin, a fellow UT alum, but he's married; Anthony, her high school sweetheart, is a selfish lover; and Devin, a nonbinary art teacher with whom things go swimmingly until Cori demonstrates an interest in Cory, a bisexual man who makes Cori jealous by bringing around his ex. Then she finds a package left behind by Joelle, which contains clues to the mysterious app, which, when it reveals her fourth match, brings tension to her new friend group. As Cori pursues love, Baker shines in engaging portrayals of friendships old and new. Readers are in for a treat. (July)"
