Looking for a contemporary romance in which the hero and heroine are both struggling with issues that many of us face, yet who both find the bravery and faith to give love a chance?

Then Jennifer Probst’s SEARCHING FOR PERFECT is the book for you.

Read my 5-Lime review to find out more 🙂

Review: SEARCHING FOR PERFECT reels you in with the ‘nerdy’ hero, Nate, on a speed dating experience from hell – you’re sure to go ‘Oh no, he didn’t just say that’ then find yourself laughing out loud 🙂

‘Hooks’ you when the heroine, Kennedy, has to drag Nate away from one woman in order to spell out to why it’s a bad idea to talk about a woman’s fertility so bluntly.

And never lets go as you follow these two on their bumpy, funny, heartwarming, journey to their very own HEA.

This is book #2 in Jennifer Probst’s “Searching For” series about three best friends who pool their talents and resources to open Kinnections, a dating service with a ‘magical’ twist. However each book can be read as a stand-alone, so you don’t need to worry if you haven’t read book #1; SEARCHING FOR SOMEDAY.

Nate was the one ready to settle down and did his (awkward yet honest) best to achieve the desired results 🙂 His ‘playboy’ brother’s poor dating advice certainly doesn’t help though.

Recognising someone in need of her skills, and some serious guidance on the best ways to interact with women, Kennedy uses her skills to give Nate the best chance possible of making a lifelong ‘Kinnection’.

Kennedy, on the other hand, may look perfect on the outside, with no interest in ‘settling down’ but she has some serious mental and emotional scars from issues in her adolescence, including bullying and struggles with her weight.

Nate recognised something special in Kennedy and set out to be with her but oh no, no, she was not  having that. At first. But as the Borg say in Star Trek, “resistance is futile”, and these two end up hooking up in the best possible ways 😉

I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Searching for Perfect cover 1Synopsis: 

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?
