My Thoughts

**I received a copy of ‘Formula For a Perfect Life’ through Prism Book Tours, in exchange for an honest review**

‘Formula For a Perfect Life’ tells the story of young love, and the consequences of having a careless approach to life. This particular love story has both characters figuring out how to move forward now that a child now intertwines their lives. It’s a journey filled with realizations about life needs, and how one’s personal values can shape the future of others.

This story has heavy religious overtones, but this didn’t sway me from appreciating the message of Kayla and Ben’s life journeys: patience and the willingness to build trust can benefit everyone’s well-being in the end. I really appreciated a different approach to the traditional love story!

Rating: 4/5 Stars


Two practical strangers. One fateful night. Two pink lines.

College senior and obsessive romantic Kayla Cummings’ dreams of a storybook life are spun off course by an unplanned pregnancy after a one-night stand with her secret crush. Devastated, Kayla turns to her roommates and best friends for advice. No matter what she decides, no matter how deeply embarrassed, she has to tell the father.

Ben Strickland’s future is written in stone—as long as he gets a decent score on the Law School Admission Test. Feeling pressure from all sides, Ben struggles to juggle his upcoming finals, another shot at the LSAT, and his needy girlfriend Darcy. When the girl he spent a memorable night with weeks ago shows up at his doorstep pregnant, his already chaotic life spins out of control.

With the clock ticking, decisions to make, and a boatload of people to disappoint, Ben and Kayla embark on a journey neither anticipated—a journey where falling in love might be the biggest surprise of all. But when old hurts and buried secrets pose a greater threat to their future than impending parenthood, will Ben and Kayla go their separate ways or forge a new path to happy ever after?
