Book Shelf: Searching for Someday (Searching For #1) by Jennifer Probst

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.

Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst is an electrifying romance that features sizzling chemistry, sexual tension and outstanding characters! Fun, fresh and addictive, this book is perfect for those who love Alice Clayton or a good rom-com!

Searching for Someday introduces readers to Kate Seymour and Slade Montgomery, two people who have very different views on love, but whose lives are about to collide with sizzling results. Kate Seymour runs a successful matchmaking company called Kinnections alongside her two best friends. Featuring a magic touch passed down through her family, Kate has the ability to know when two people are made for each other and with the help of different techniques and services Kinnections has to offer, has managed to bring love to the lives of many of her customers. Too bad the only person she can't find love for is herself......

Enter Slade Montgomery, a confidant, hot-tempered divorce lawyer and someone whose view on love is pretty much non-existent. Slade's beloved younger sister is Kate's latest client and he's determined to prove that Kinnections is the fraud he thinks it is. Yet what happens when the two meet and sparks erupt, pretty much literally between them? Can the matchmaker and the divorce lawyer prove they are the most surprising couple out there? Or will their fears see them lose out on the chance at love......

Boy, was Searching for Someday a brilliant read! Unexpectedly so. I jumped in headfirst with no expectations and Jennifer Probst caught me hook, line and sinker from the very beginning. Wonderfully told through both Kate and Slade's POV's, Searching for Someday was a highly addictive, electric read that smoldered with chemistry, sexual tension and had all the humor, romance and flair to make it gold!

Both main leads in this novel won me over from the moment I met them. They're both intelligent, successful people in their own rights and the chemistry that sizzled between them was fabulous. Sharp dialogue and banter litters Searching for Someday, and Jennifer Probst supports her story with a great cast of minor characters I'm already dying to learn about.

It was very easy to quickly come to care about both Kate and Slade and I have to give Probst props for including a tiny bit of magic in the story with Kate's ability, but not making it too overpowering. I much preferred focusing on Kate and Slade and their relationship together rather than anything else.

As such a powerful man, Slade practically oozed sexual appeal, and I have to say, I certainly wasn't immune. There's something so sexy about seeing a well put together, calm, calculated and restrained individual loose control and become a slave to their emotions and feelings. Kate was capable and smart and more than willing to hold her own against Slade. Jennifer Probst has created a dynamic pairing with these two and there was nothing I didn't love about them as they sorted out their issues and became better people for it, both individually and as a couple.

Expertly written and sooooo, so good Searching for Someday is a brilliant read and I'm already eager to continue on with the series and discover just what Jennifer Probst has planned for Kennedy, Arilyn and Gen! Fantastic read--definitely recommend!
