“I love every bit of this book. Searching for Perfect is sweet, witty and outright hilarious. Jennifer Probst has outdone herself with this sequel to Searching for Someday. This book had me laugh out hard, swoon over the sexy hero and sigh over the very romantic storyline.” ~ Under the Covers

Kennedy is one of the owners of Kinnections. She is on a mission and her special project is one hunk of nerd named Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle. A tough one at that since this Aero Space engineer can be the super nerd of the year. Given that Kinnections is a matching agency, her goal is not only shape Nate to be a perfect candidate but to Search for his Perfect mate. Soon, Kennedy will learn that perfection is having imperfection and not only pertaining to her client but herself.

I love every bit of this book. Searching for Perfect is sweet, witty and outright hilarious. Jennifer Probst has outdone herself with this sequel to Searching for Someday. This book had me laugh out hard, swoon over the sexy hero and sigh over the very romantic storyline.

I love Nate, it’s hard not to. This guy is just so adorable. He’s not what you would usually expect in a hero and not your typical nerd cliché either. Yes, he’s looks and acts like a classic nerd. But this guy is a real hunk just hidden under a façade of a gorilla who has a social expertise or a hyena (Don’t ask me where I got the comparison). However, Nate cleans up pretty good and once you find out what kind of books he’s been reading, you’ll be very impressed. I’ll tell you this much, his reads are not only for enjoyment but to learn techniques for pleasuring a woman. Oh, the things he can do with food. *fans self*

And obviously, Kennedy was totally impressed with him. After seeing him for the first time at a dating/social function, she couldn’t stay away from him. Despite the sparks between them, Kennedy refuses to give them a chance at forever, silly girl. Given her past, I don’t blame her but there were times when I just wanted to smack her to show her how good she got it. What I love most though is how Nate convinced her. Their courtship was absolutely sweet and romantic.

Secondary Characters were ever so present; Kate, Slade, Arilyn and of course Wolfe. Oh boy, the set up for Wolfe’s story is there at our grasp. Probst’s fans have been waiting to get their Wolfe fix and in this book, there is enough of Wolfe to drool over and want even more. Watch out for characters named Ming and Benny. Those two had me reeling. I was most certainly entertained.

If you like Emma Chase’s Tangled or Alice Clayton’s Wallbanger, you sure will enjoy Searching for Perfect. Though this is book two of the series, I can assure you that it can be a standalone read. Well done Ms. Probst!

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
