Review- Searching For Someday by Jennifer Probst

Summary-

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.

Review-

I truly enjoyed Jennifer Probst's Marriage to a Billionaire series so while I was sad that it got over, I was excited for its spin off, which is Searching for Someday. I enjoyed Searching For Someday, I'm not denying that I didn't but I didn't love it as much as her other series. It was a fairly good book.

In Searching For Someday we have Kate. After several horrible dates she has given up on finding true love for herself. Kate has a unique ability to detect the perfect love match. She with her two best friends own a matchmaking company. I liked Kate. She was a nice person and she had her insecurities like all of us do. But I didn't totally love her.

Then we have Slade. Slade is a divorce lawyer. He thinks that Kate and her friends are out there to sham people giving them false hopes of true love. He sets out to prove her wrong by signing himself up for Kate to find his true love. Too bad he's attracted to the match maker herself. Slade was a hard ass. A complete cynic who was hard to warm up to. He was against the institution of love and it took me time to like him.

Kate and Slade together were hot. There is no doubt in my mind that they had chemistry. Jennifer Probst writes amazing intimate scenes with the right amount of sexiness. We get to see all that. What irritated me though, were Kate and Slade. They were highly indecisive, changing their mind about each other after every page. All that denial got repetitive after a while.

What I loved the most about the book though, was the tiny glimpse we got of Wolfe. I am still lusting after him and I really hope he gets a book sometime in the future. I liked Kate's friends Kennedy and Arilyn. Kennedy's book is next. Though I have to say, I didn't like the epilogue very much. If you like contemporary romances you can give Searching For Someday a try.

  1. I don't think Slade was indecisive, he was just stupid to go along with whatever Kate wanted (i.e. to go on random weird dates). He could just have said F it to all of it and waited for Kate to realize her feeling for him. Regardless, I still think it was such a fun read and so Jennifer Probst-ish. Only she can pull of these type of romances so well. And I agree with you on the epilogue. This was the first time I was weirded out by a epilogue, usually I'm a fan. Great review, Janhvi!

  2. I enjoyed the Marriage to a Billionaire series as well. The first book the best. Sometimes, that back and forth can get frustrating so I can see why it would annoy you. Nice to see you enjoyed the book in spite of that. Great review, Janhvi! :)

  3. I loved the Marriage to a Billionaire Series! I still have to review this one, but am sad that there's only a little bit of Wolfe! I hope he gets his own story. Great Review Janhvi. Hopefully, you'll like the next book in the series better.
