Searching for Perfect by Jennifer Probst, review by Dee

My rating: 4 of 5 hearts

Searching for Perfect (Searching For, #2)

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?

I love that this book brings in all our characters from previous Jennifer Probst books. This book didn't disappoint in any way. It follows typical JP style of wanting something you can't have and having to push the other person to see love. I also love that we get a little more of the love spell. We also get to see our characters from her other books. I also really liked that for once, it wasn't the girl who needed the makeover, it was the guy. It wasn't the girl who was nerdy, it was the guy. It wasn't the girl who fell and the guy wasn't ready, it was the guy who fell. So its almost like the roles are reversed from all the normal romance books. It's almost like a male version of She's All That...cause let's be honest.. He's ALL That. Nate is HOT! He's got everything going for him, he just didn't know how to work with what he had. Thanks to Kennedy, he does now. Only now he's working it on her , and falling for her. Kennedy just has so much baggage she couldn't see past it. Nate does an amazing job of helping her work past her issues. All of them. I thought this was a good book and flowed in the typical Jennifer Probst smooth style.

I give this 4 hearts
