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 her new client, Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle, rocket scientist and nerd extraordinary. Kennedy vows to 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 harbours deep-seated insurcuitites from her tormented past. When she realises 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's?
Thoughts on the book: Searching for Perfect is the second book in the Searching for Someday series by Jennifer Probst. It focus is on Kennedy Ashe, director for Kinnections, the matchmaking business that she and her two friends run in Verily, New York, best friend to Kate who we met in book one and Nate 'Ned' Ellison Raymond Dunkle, the biggest nerd around, hello he is a rocket scientist who wears the geeky clothes and has no clue about women and how to treat them. Enter Kinnections and mainly Kennedy who decides to take on Nate as her own special project. But what she thought would be a fun, easy situation sons turns into something she can't handle, Kennedy may actually be falling for her client which simply isn't allowed. Will Kennedy follow her heart and find her happily ever after with Nate or will she follow her head and be lonely forever?
Searching for Perfect is the perfect fit into this series and I loved learning more about Kennedy after being introduced to her in book one of the series. It is a fast read, with many laugh out loud moments but also touches on some topics which some readers may be able to identify with. I loved the main man in this book Nate. As with most people we never really would have looked twice at him but upon reading more about him, we learn that there is so much more to people than what is on the surface. It was also fantastic to see how the others characters that we had met in the previous book were going with their lives and I also loved the unlikely friendship that Nate developed with one of these characters. Personally I can't wait to rip into the next book in the series and see where the author takes us next.
