Book Review: Searching for Perfect (Searching For #2) by Jennifer Probst

Nate and Kennedy have more in common than they realize. On the surface, they couldn't look more opposite. He's the nerdy rocket scientist with stains on his shirt and she is the gorgeous co-owner of Kinnections. When she watches Nate crash and burn at one of their speed dating events, she feels compelled to make him her personal project. After all, makeovers are her specialty. Nate knows that a woman like Kennedy would never want to be with him, but that doesn't stop him from wanting her. When she starts to develop feelings of her own, she tries her best to ignore them.

In Searching for Someday, we see Kennedy as the beautiful, sexy woman who prefers to hop from one man to the next. But here we get to see who she truly is under her carefully constructed facade. It is so easy to relate to her as her self image issues are ones that many women share. And Nate? Well I tend to be partial to geek's since I am a bit of one myself. You just know that underneath the ill-fitting clothes and bad hair is a sexy man and damn if I couldn't wait for him to come out.

True to Jennifer Probst's style, Searching for Perfect was filled with easily loveable characters, humor, sexiness and just a fun story. What I really loved about this book was the witty comedy because it didn't just make me chuckle, it had me full out belly laughing. (Just wait till you get to the scene with Nate and Ming. Priceless). When you can make me laugh out loud in one chapter and then pant in another, well then you have a big winner. For those who have read her Marriage to a Billionaire series, we do get brief appearances from all of those happy couples and I loved catching up with them all. I absolutely adored this book and once again cannot wait for more from Jennifer.

Favorite Quotes

"I want to fuck you, Ken. Slow and hard, in so many ways there's not a part of your body I haven't used and pleasured. Don't think this is going to be a quick round with sweet kisses and politeness. I've waited too long. Understood?"

"What were the last three books you read?"
"The Kama Sutra. The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty. Fifty Shades of Grey."

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?
