Book Review: Searching for Beautiful (Searching For #3) by Jennifer Probst

Today is supposed to  be the happiest day of Genevieve's life. So why does everything feel so wrong? Should she listen to the voice in her head telling her to get the hell away or should she keep ignoring it, like she has been for years. Wolfe has a horrible past that he doesn't share with anyone. Not even his closest friend, Gen. They may have drifted apart recently, but he will always be there for her. Especially when he sees her climbing out of a window. He'll take her away from everything for a few days to get her head on straight and hopefully get his best friend back. Only he gets more than he bargained for.

Oh how I have missed Verily, NY and this amazing cast of characters. It is just one big extended family that all have each other's back I've been waiting for this story since the end of the last novel hen something seemed terribly off with Gen. I wanted to see her get back to being herself. Her fiance, David, is the most awful man ever and I wanted nothing more for her than to run away from him. For the first half of this book I was crazy anxious, just waiting to see if he would get worse. But I was also thrilled to see Gen and Wolfe get back to where their friendship once was before David. Anyone and everyone could see there was more to them, everyone except those two of course.

As the tension continues to build, it is only a matter of time before they reach their breaking points and finally give in. They were so beyond hot together and the image of Wolfe's beautiful serpent tattoo will be ingrained in my memory for a long time to come. Along with his other, ahem, assets. I loved seeing Gen get her confidence back and grow stronger each day. But could Wolfe give her what she truly needed? What they both deserved? It was a fun, emotional, angsty roller coaster ride and I enjoyed every single second of it.

Favorite Quotes

"Tonight I'm going to fuck you. All night. If I was a true friend, I'd walk out that door and give you the space to rebuild your walls. You deserve that. But I'm a selfish prick who needs you in my bed so bad I'll trade my soul to the devil for one taste of you."

"We don't apologize to each other. Not for what we do together or feel. We own it all, Gen. And I intend to do every filthy, dirty thing I've imagined without fucking apologizing."
