“It’s a love story that is well overdue and much anticipated by Probst’s fans such as myself.” ~ Under the Covers
The cover and blurb may tell you this story is of a runaway bride, but I beg the differ. The heroine may be a runaway bride, but Searching for Perfect is really a friend-to-lovers story. It’s a love story that is well overdue and much anticipated by Probst’s fans such as myself.
Genevieve is to be married to the man who in the world’s eyes is the perfect man. But no one knows how manipulative and mentally abusive he can be. Last minute decision brings her to the arms of her good friend, Wolfe, who whisks her away to think things through. In their little getaway, their true feelings come out. Feelings they’ve had for quite sometime. Well, it’s about time they come out with it.
We first met Wolfe in Ms. Probst’s Marriage Merger (Sawyer and Julietta’s book). His real name is Vincent, but Wolfe suits him better. Even back then he has already captured readers’ love and attention. I clearly remember him and his part in that book broke my heart. He didn’t have a good childhood. In this novel, not only that he gets the girl he loves, he also finalizes a few matters with his family background. He will get closure from his past and a whole new beginning.
It was really nice to see Wolfe mature to a very sexy and responsible man. This is not the lost teen who wouldn’t even pick up his laundry off the floor. No. He is more than what I expected. He dealt with his past quite well. Thanks to Sawyer. Gen, on the other hand, came from a very close-knit family and her issue was breaking free from what was expected of her. Though, I would’ve like to see her relationship with Wolfe go about it in a different way, Probst still did a good job making the union right.
Searching for Perfect is not my fave of the series, but still a very good read. On that note, I’m reading Searching for Always next. =)
