Review: Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst
Review for Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst
This was not the first book I read by Jennifer Probst. I loved her Marriage to a Billionaire series and decided to give this book a shot. The book itself is several years old but that didn’t hinder the story at all.
The novel begins with Kate, the owner of a matchmaking agency called Kinnections. She, along with two of her best friends, strive to help men and women find love. When a new client arrives, Kate begins to help and find the perfect man. However the client’s brother, Slade, doesn’t believe in love and will stop at nothing to expose Kate and her scam of a business.
I enjoyed the banter between Kate and Slade in the beginning. Of course, there is that instant connection that we all know and read about. Slade has two sides in the story. The adoring older brother who watches over his sister and will stop at nothing to protect her. Then, his alpha side, whose only goal is to give Kate the best sexual experiences of her life.
The story is fairly predictable; nothing that I haven’t read before, but I still enjoyed it. The heat level is extreme for those who love a good sex scene. I would say, it did take me a while to finish. I kept finding myself a little bored at times, as I knew what was coming.
Overall, I still liked the story. This is the first book of the series. The next stories are about the secondary characters. I will continue the series, hoping the next ones are a little better.
Blurb for Searching for Someday
Kate has given up on love—at least for herself. She is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense a romantic connection between two people—a gift that her family passed down for generations. When Kate launches her own matchmaking company, Kinnection, with her two best friends in a cozy New York town, she has to put aside her own romantic disasters to make her business a success.
But when a furious man stalks into her office and accuses her business of being a scam, Kate is given the ultimate challenge to prove herself. Slade puts himself in her hands and asks Kate to find him love. Enraged at his arrogance but stubbornly eager to prove herself, Kate agrees, dedicating herself to the journey of finding him love… only to find herself falling for him along the way.
The up-and-coming matchmaking agency Kinnections is the hottest thing to hit Verily, New York—just like Kennedy Ashe, social director for the service she owns with her two best girlfriends. A coach, consultant, and cheerleader rolled into one super-sizzling package, Kennedy creates dream dates, encourages singles to shine, and never refuses a challenge—not even Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle, rocket scientist, nerd extraordinaire, and Kennedy’s newest client.
Kennedy vows to work her magic and transform this hot mess in a lab coat with a disastrous relationship track record into the most wanted man on the Verily dating scene. If only she could turn the wand on herself . . .
Though she radiates confidence and sex appeal, Kennedy harbors deep-seated insecurities from a tormented past and lifelong struggle with weight issues. When she realizes she and Nate are cut from the same cloth and might be perfect together, can Kennedy learn to let her heart lead the way? Or will her fears sentence her to the sidelines as Nate finds love—with someone else?
