Summary

A man whose future is assigned. A heart that yearns to be free.

There’s a reason why Lee Kennedy is still in college - and it has nothing to do with his academic performance. He’s switched his major repeatedly and stalled on his Master’s thesis, but there’s only so much longer he can hold out. And once he graduates, it’s time to trigger the Algorithm.

Everyone in Lee’s family has allowed the Algorithm to match them with a spouse. As has everyone on his block. His neighborhood. In fact, everyone he’s ever known. Pairing with his own Algorithm match seems inevitable...until, at his sister’s wedding, he meets Roman.

The waiter lives in the Taxable District, a neighborhood that’s only a brief train ride away, but feels like another world. The seedy District is governed by different standards - different expectations - so it’s not exactly a surprise that Roman isn’t married. But it’s definitely a shock to taste his lips.

One forbidden encounter leaves Lee questioning everything. He longs for the freedom to choose not only his own partner, but his own destiny. When defying the Algorithm will cost Lee his livelihood, his family and his home, is he strong enough to take another path? 

This coming-of-age story will appeal to listeners who enjoy character-driven science fiction. It’s a complete standalone novella.

So intriguing

I am in awe of Jordan Castillo Price’s skill at world building and Joel Leslie’s ability to make that world so vivid. This is so much more than a romance it is a journey of self discovery Lee has to take if he is ever to be happy. The concept of having your partner chosen by an algorithm, state arranged marriage, for the purpose of repopulating and no recourse was so intriguing it kept me hooked. I love Joel Leslie’s ability with voices. There are times when it seems there is more than just him narrating the story. I will definitely be listening to this book over and over again.

The Impefect Match is the the PERFET MATCH

Jordan Castillo Price can do no wrong in my book when it comes to creativity in her Stories, and how she tells the Story in her unique style with Wit, Heart and Humor. This Author spins a wonderful Story in this novel of a future world that is believable and where Romantic Matches are determined by a Mysterious System that matches couples for life. However, the heroes of the Story are about two Men who are able to transcend the System that would declare our Heroes as Imperfect Matches. Of course, the talented Joel Leslie does his usual magic as Narrator giving voice to the written word and Characters of Jordan Castillo Price. Ms. Price has been blessed also with the gifted Gomez Pugh, Narrator .in the Psych Cop Series!
