The highly anticipated second novel in the new Searching For series from Jennifer Probst, “one of the most exciting breakout novelists” (USA TODAY)—a spin-off of the bestselling Marriage to a Billionaire series—featuring a sexy matchmaker, and the rocket scientist who becomes her special project…
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 absolutely LOVED this book!! I thought Jennifer Probst’s Searching for Someday was wonderful – and it was – but SEARCHING FOR PERFECT was even better. I loved the storyline, an awkward, forthright, misinformed but well-intentioned, extremely intelligent (hello, actual rocket scientist), horrible dressing NERD in every way, including his name Nathaniel Ellison Raymond Dunkle who very sincerely wants a wife and a family hires the very sophisticated, charming, completely put together and stylish Kennedy Ashe as his matchmaker. Only these two seemingly mismatched opposites have sexual chemistry off the charts and fall for each other. Nate of course is all for it, but Kennedy fights how she feels for Nate for all she’s worth.
The friendship and camaraderie of the three women who run Kinnections, Kennedy, Kate and Arilyn is what every woman wants in a friend and makes for many laugh out loud scenes. Ming, the Asian masseuse and Benny, the stylist add more hilarity to the mix, and Nate himself, just being himself will keep you smiling. He’s wonderful. Honest, sincere, kind – when he’s not sticking his foot in his mouth, sexy, an athletic body from golf, and well-versed and willing to please his woman. Over and over and over. And then in the midst of all this humor and falling in love, JP throws in the fallout of a serious health issue and it’s effects on a person. I loved the way she handled it and didn’t glaze over it. All I can say is this story was brilliantly written and I enjoyed every word. I am eagerly waiting for the next book in the Searching For series and hope that it is Wolfe’s story and that he finally gets his girl!!
