Loved It: Searching For Perfect by Jennifer Probst

Series: Searching For 2
Format: Paperback
Release Date: April 29, 2014
Publisher: Gallery Books
Source: Publisher
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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?

Jennifer Probst gives us another winning contemporary novel in SEARCHING FOR PERFECT, book two of her sparkling series, Searching For. This time around the geeks are bringing the sexy! And you know I love geeks, echoing Kennedy's sentiment, geeks are underrated so it gave me so much pleasure to read an aerospace engineer, aka rocket scientist, fall in love with the girl of his dreams. 
"Did you always want to be an aerospace engineer?"
"No, I wanted to be a superhero. I always felt I could make Batman's cave a heall of a lot better. and the Batmobile needed some tweaking."
Nathaniel Ellison Raymond Dunkle. I was already crushing at the dude from the first mixer despite his foot-in-mouth style of flirting. This man is determined to find himself a wife. A wife! A man who isn't afraid of commitment! Isn't that so refreshing?! Anyway, I can't help but adore Nate, he's really trying to be suave, going for what women want most based on his research and the quizzes he took in Cosmopolitan, Marie Clare and other girly magazines. He also reads erotica, Fifty Shades, Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, and the Kama Sutra to increase his knowledge and skill in pleasuring a woman in the sack. In short, Nate took dating to a whole new level, made it almost a science, too bad it wasn't flawless because he was still a trainwreck which prompted Kennedy to step in and take Nate on as her personal quest. 

Kennedy I already liked in Searching For Someday, she was Kate's sexed up bestfriend and the perfect contrast to complete this not-so-opposite-attracts theme that JProbst wrote. Kennedy's a man eater, a serial dater, emotionally unavailable, and has a love/hate relationship with carbs and sugar which makes her grumpy sometimes. Obviously the girl's got issues which explains her commitment phobia. What endeared Kennedy to me is her brains. Despite the airhead facade, Kennedy is smart. Not Nate Dunkle smart but close enough for them to carry on a genius conversation. I was simply impressed because Kennedy carried Geek in a very chic way.

SEARCHING FOR PERFECT is warm, cuddly, romantic, and funny sequel. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart, I swoon over stories where love prevails especially the ones where the underdog wins the girl. JProbst's Searching For series always delivers fuzzy and hopeful romances with a little sprinkle of magic to make it sparkle even more. *lets out a happy sigh*
"[Love is] A Mirage. A perfect night of pleasure is realistic" [Connor, Nate's brother]
"Actually, that's the real mirage," she [Kennedy] said. "The dark hides a lot. no one has to tell secrets, get messy, or deal with morning breath. Daylight is the hard part. The realistic part."
