Overview

First in a sizzling new series from Jennifer Probst, the USA Today bestselling author adored for her “fresh, fun, and sexy” (Romancing the Book) storytelling!

In charming Verily, New York, Kate Seymour has a smashing success with Kinnections, the matchmaking service she owns with her two best girlfriends. But Kate’s more than a savvy businesswoman: She’s gifted with a secret power, a jolting touch that signals when love’s magic is at work. It rocked her when she picked up a strange volume of love spells in the town’s used bookstore . . . and it zapped her again when she encountered Slade Montgomery, the hot-tempered— and hot-bodied—divorce lawyer who storms into Kinnections demanding proof that playing Cupid won’t destroy his vulnerable sister, Kate’s newest client. The only way to convince this cynic that she’s no fraud, and that love is no mirage, is for Kate to meet his audacious challenge: find him his dream woman. Can Kate keep their relationship strictly business when her electrifying attraction nearly knocked her off her feet? Or has the matchmaker finally met her match?

Editorial Reviews

The Bibliomaniacs and their Playlist
This is a story about love, but just like in her other series (Marriage to a Billionaire), I appreciate how she tells the readers how important a family's love is... there were parts in this book that really tug at your heart.
RT Book Reviews
Witty dialogue and passionate characters… a sophisticated,sexy romance with an intelligent business savvy heroine at its center and a super hot love interest

USA Bestselling Author Alice Clayton
Probst nails it, pun intended and acknowledged, with this sassy and sexy tale. I never wanted this story to end! Jennifer Probst has a knack for writing characters I truly care about —I want these people as my friends!
Publishers Weekly
10/14/2013
Kate Seymour runs a successful matchmaking business, Kinnections, using “science and skill” as well as her inherited ability to find a soul mate with a magic, electric touch. Cynical divorce lawyer Slade Montgomery thinks love is a by-product of oxytocin and that Kate’s agency is a fraud that preys on the desperate and lonely. When he becomes a Kinnections client to prove his point, his list of traits desired in a woman makes it clear that Slade and Kate are beyond incompatible, and she dutifully tries to find him a partner. But the literal crackle of electricity when they touch tells Kate that Slade is her destined love. Bestseller Probst (the Marriage to a Billionaire series) creates a likable cast, refreshing female friendships, and a slight paranormal element that enliven this otherwise predictable opposites-bicker-their-way-into-bed story, and Kate’s paraplegic pit bull, Robert, steals the show. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (Nov.)

Searching for Someday


  • I’M MOVING OUT.”

Slade watched his sister drag her oversized floral pieces of luggage down the hallway and drop them at the front door. A strange panic roared through his system, but he stood frozen in the foyer, watching the scene unfold. Hell, no. She wasn’t ready to go anywhere on her own yet, but somehow he needed to convince her without looking like a crazed control-freak brother. He kept his voice gentle and firm.

“Jane, I don’t think it’s a good idea. I know you want a place of your own, but I don’t think you’re ready. Besides, I’ll get lonely by myself. Give it some time, and I’ll help you find an apartment.”

Jane turned fast, hands on hips, that furious female scowl he knew well. Bottom line, he’d screwed up his words again. “First off, give me a little credit. I’m ready. I appreciate you letting me live here, but I should’ve moved out a year ago. And the only reason you’re lonely is your refusal to stay with a woman past one night.”

Slade winced. Unfair. He was always discreet when it came to women, not needing his sister to try to bond with any of them, since long-term commitment was doomed from the start. The statistics alone of marriage breakups caused a shudder.

She marched into the open living room and headed toward the bookcase to grab a few off the shelves. Crap, was that The Chew’s new cookbook? He hadn’t even looked at the pictures yet. “Be reasonable, Jane. You have nowhere to go, and I don’t want you staying at a crappy studio in Manhattan. It’ll cost a million dollars and won’t be safe. Are you still upset over your breakup? We can go slash his tires, get drunk, and watch chick flick movies. That’s what women do, right?”

Jane tipped her head back and laughed. “God, Slade, if I didn’t love you so much I’d murder you. I have a place already. I rented an apartment in Verily on the river. I quit my job and lined up a new one at the local community college there.”

The room spun. He stared at his normally shy, logical, steady sister and wondered what she’d drunk to turn into Mr. Hyde. “Quit your job? You were working on tenure!”

“And I hated it there. Stuffy, pompous, and boring. I hate Manhattan, too. It’s crowded and hurts my head most of the time.” Jane dragged in a breath and walked over, stuffing the books into her tote bag. Her long jet-black hair sprung into a whirlwind of curls, and her cocoa-brown eyes peered at him sadly from behind thick black glasses. “I can’t do this anymore,” she said. “I need a fresh start on my own terms. Verily is small and quaint, and the college focuses on using creativity in literature. I can grow there. Maybe meet a man who won’t wring me dry and dump me.” Her laugh was totally wry, and Slade’s heart squeezed in sheer fear.

He couldn’t let her go. If something happened, it would be his fault. Again. At least if she were under his roof, he could easily gauge if she was down-spiraling. Slade swung into lawyer mode. Being one of the top divorce lawyers in the state had to be good for something other than money. “I understand you want to be on your own. I agree it’s time, but quitting your job and running off to a town you don’t know is dangerous. I’ll go with you to Verily this weekend. I’ll help you look, maybe meet some people there so you’re not alone, and we’ll figure it out together.”

Her voice rose to a dangerous level. “I don’t want to figure it out together! I want to figure things out myself. Oh, for God’s sake, look at this place.” She flung out her arm and gestured to his expensive loft apartment situated in the coveted location of Tribeca. The huge open space was split into two levels with a sleek glass staircase connecting them together. Windows lined the walls and overlooked the city of Manhattan. Pricey art, bamboo floors, edgy glass tables, granite counters, and huge leather recliners completed the look of bachelor in the city.

“What’s wrong with it? We have plenty of room here.”

“This is your place! I haven’t had anything for myself in the past three years. I’m twenty-eight years old. It’s time I do things on my terms without anyone worrying if I’m going to emotionally lose it when something goes wrong.”

He winced. Jane was extremely sensitive and had always struggled in such a brutal society. He watched a long line of men crush her like a gentle flower under their heels until there was nothing left but a few stray petals. He’d sworn never to let anyone hurt her again. He had to make her stay.

“Sweetheart, I know you’re much stronger now. Don’t ever think I’m waiting for you to implode. I just think it would be better to wait.”

“I don’t.” Jane opened the closet door, grabbed her black wool coat, and stuffed her arms into the sleeves. “When I get settled, you can bring the rest of my stuff and visit. I think you’ll like it in Verily. And I won’t be lonely for long. I’ve decided to sign up with a matchmaking agency.”

Yep. She’d definitely slugged the Mr. Hyde punch. “Are you kidding me? Do you know how many of those get closed down for fraud? There’s no such thing as the perfect match, and you know it. What is going on with you?”

She stuck her chin out. “I’m tired of being afraid and meeting the wrong men. Kinnections is a well-respected company. I like the women I met there, and I trust them. So don’t worry about me holing up in my apartment and getting depressed. I’m going out there and meeting people. I’m different this time.”

“This place is going to take your money and give you false expectations. What if it doesn’t work out and you crash? I’m not going to stand around helplessly while you’re destroyed again by some ruthless people out for your money.”

She let out an outraged squeal. “Are you listening to yourself? God, stop protecting me. I’m a different person than I was three years ago and you’re stifling me! Mom and Dad wouldn’t want me to live tucked away in your man cave while I watch life happen to other people.”

“Mom and Dad never found you on a bathroom floor overdosed on pills. Mom and Dad didn’t hold you in their arms, praying you wouldn’t die!”

The silence shattered around them. Slade closed his eyes briefly, grief cutting out pieces of him. The words entwined with a blame and a plea that twisted his stomach. The memory of finding her suicide attempt changed him. He wanted her safe. Couldn’t she understand?

His voice broke. “I’m so sorry, Jane. I didn’t mean to bring that up.”

Hurt carved out the lines of her face, and her lower lip trembled. “Yes. You did. I’m sorry I put you through that. But I’m not the same person anymore. I deserve happiness and I’m going to take it. Yes, I may get hurt along the way, but I can handle it now, Slade. I’m stronger.” She tossed her tote over her shoulder and grabbed the handle of her suitcase. “I don’t blame you for not trusting me. But I’m going to prove myself. You’re not responsible for me any longer.”

“For God’s sake, let me help you. I’ll buy you dinner and we’ll talk more about this.”

She threw open the door. “No. The doorman is meeting me downstairs.”

“But I need a number, an address, something.”

“I’ll call when I get settled. Love you.”

She left. This time, he didn’t stop her. Part of him recognized it was important she carve her own way. The other half decided he’d rip apart anything that tried to hurt her. Or anyone.

With a low curse, he stalked to his computer and typed in the words.

Kinnections. Matchmaking. Verily.

He stared at the screen for a while and made his decision.

    This is the 3rd Jennifer Probst book I¿ve read and I have to say

    This is the 3rd Jennifer Probst book I’ve read and I have to say- it’s one of my new favorites! I love that she incorporates magical realism into her novels because it adds a little extra flair that really works for her storylines. This book gave me ALL the feels and I enjoyed watching Slade and Kate’s relationship progress into something more than either one could have ever imagined.


    Kate is such a sweet, yet strong protagonist. She is career driven, has a good head on her shoulders, and genuinely believes in her business. She is the owner of Kinnections, a matchmaking agency in the small town of Verily. Yet, Kinnections is a different type of agency- it really believes in the matchmaking process and the idea that there are two people out there meant to be with one another. While Kate handles most of the managerial aspects of the agency, she also has the touch. The touch has been passed down through generations, where she can touch two people and determine whether or not they are soulmates. She doesn’t let her gift manipulate her business, but she does casually use it to find out if two people are compatible. Her mother says denying the touch will lead to negative consequences.


    Kate is a romantic- she believes in love and forever and wants to find someone to be with for the rest of her life. She only has her sweet dog, Robert, to keep her company and she finds herself lonely at times. After a string of bad dates, Kate is determined to just say the hell with dating. Her friends that co-run the agency, Kennedy and Arilyn, won’t let her give up so easily though. Kate has worked really hard to be a confident woman, having learned how to control her stutter. However, she still gets nervous and my heart went out to her when she would feel flustered or intimidated. She is such a gentle, loving soul and we see that in her undying devotion to her paraplegic dog, Robert. He was hurt to the point of death, but she refused to let him go. She saw a kindred spirit in that dog, and knew that he needed someone to love and protect him. Let’s put it this way- the epilogue will have you in tears!


    Slade Montgomery storms into Kate’s life and ultimately turns it upside down. When we first meet him, he is a cynical divorce lawyer who is not happy about his fragile younger sister joining Kinnections. Having lost their parents, Slade feels Jane is his responsibility and he won’t let men hurt her like they have in the past. He is hell bent on exposing Kinnections as fraudulent and ends up joining as a client to prove that it doesn’t work. Slade has been burned in the past by love and now doesn’t believe in it. I hated how jaded and cynical he was, and he has encased his heart in a wall of armor. He never imagined beautiful, sweet Kate would be the one to chip away at it bit by bit. He is relentless in his pursuit of her and I loved their back and forth banter. After an earth shattering kiss, he can’t help but want and desire her. Yet, she is determined to set him up and find him a match, to prove their agency works. However, the lines really begin to blur, as she can’t get him out of her mind either. She knows dating him would be wrong, but she is distraught upon thinking of him with these perfect dates. I really felt for Kate, as Slade is completely the opposite of what she is looking for. Yet, sometimes love will find you when you least expect it and you have to choose whether you will embrace it or run from it.


    I ended up loving Slade. Beyond the cynic, he is a good hearted man, who doesn’t liberally let people in. He cares for his sister very much, and we watch his armor start to melt upon interacting with Kate and then later Robert. Working as a divorce lawyer, he sees the injustice and the damage a marriage can do to a person, and he really zones in on the mess that can result from a failed marriage and opposing spouses.


    Kate and Slade do a lot of embracing as well as running in this book, as both have their own hangups and issues to overcome. However, as Kate’s mother said, denying the touch will lead to grave consequences. Continuing to deny her electrically charged connection with Slade could lead to much worse things…


    I really liked Kate’s friends. They make a good team and really value each other’s friendship. Kate’s best friend Gen was also great (She is Alexa from The Marriage Bargain’s younger sister!) and I am anxious to see how her storyline will play out, as I think there’s much more to her relationship than meets the eye. And I am also very curious about her twin sister, Izzy, who we see briefly and is a bit of a hot mess.


    It was also awesome to see some of the characters from the Marriage to a Billionaire series make a cameo too, as this is the spinoff series. However, it is to be noted that this can be read as a stand-alone.


    Overall, this was just the love story I needed to fill my heart to the point where I thought it would burst with emotion. You will fall in love with Kate and Slade (and doggie Robert too!) and the sweet story behind it all. Definitely a must read!

    First Impression .... Gorgeous cover. I'm curious about the hero

    First Impression .... Gorgeous cover. I'm curious about the heroine's "magic touch". Will she use it for good or for evil. Hmmmm....

    The Story... Searching for Someday is a spin-off of the Marriage to a Billionaire series. I've only read one book from that series, and was hoping I could easily read this without the backstory, and I did.

    Kate Seymour has the magic touch, one that determines true love. She uses that touch at her matchmaking company, Kinnections. When Slade Montgomery learns his once fragile sister is seeking Kinnections help to find a love connection, he is livid. A divorce lawyer, he is determined to prove Kate, and her partners, as fraud. But...turns out that Kate's touch indicates these two are soul mates. Spade doesn't believe in enduring love. Kate wants it all. Will she convince him? Does she even want to try? And what happens when you try to deny magic?

    The Characters ... The two main characters, Kate and Slade, were so well-written. It was a really fine line Probst walked with these two.Spade was a very sexy man, but he was also grumpy and condescending. But, he never truly veered into jerk territory. I was happy Probst managed to always keep me in mind that Slade was misguided, very much so, but not an awful person who didn't deserve Kate.

    Kate, on the other hand, was a charming and lovely heroine. With a lifelong stuttering problem that led to self-esteem issues, Kate has worked hard to become the success she is. She has dedicated her life to helping others find true love, with the help of her gift. I love how Probst developed this part of the storyline, and here's why: Kate's gift, a gift all the women in her family shares, reminded me of an all-time favorite, Practical Magic. This story was more magical realism and less fantasy, but with its strong sisterhood and belief in the power of love, it shared a similar vibe.

    The Writing .... Searching for Someday had a quick pace with a great flow that had me flying through the nearly four hundred pages. With it being quite long, I expected it to be overly long or with too much dragging or subplots. Wrong on all counts. The story did justice to Kate and Slade and the issues they face. The story never seemed to drag or frustrated with indecision or hesitation. The various subplots all worked to enhance the story and promise more to come. What really excited me was the inclusion of Wolfe from The Marriage Merger. That man is going to have a DELICIOUS story to tell. Yay!


    The Heat ... Was nice and steamy. I knew that Probst could bring the sexy, and boy did she! I love a man with a dirty mouth, and Slade seemed more than willing to fulfill. The story wasn't all sex, though. They had a nice build-up, with plenty of anticipation. The physical aspects of the relationship didn't override the emotional, but fit within the natural progression.

    Could I Put Searching for Someday Down? .... Searching for Someday isn't a book that grabbed my lady bits and refuse to be let go, but it was a story that I didn't want to put down. I did find myself thinking about it when I couldn't read and I will definitely be recommending it to friends.

    In the End... With its charm and Practical Magic-esque vibe, I'm very happy Searching for Someday came my way. If it hadn't shown up unexpectedly on my doorstep, I probably wouldn't have picked it up for ages. And now, having enjoyed this book and knowing I have Kennedy's book, Searching for Perfect, to look forward to, I have a new series to anxiously await. Best Reader Feeling Ever.



    Favorite Quotes:

    A violent rush of possessiveness claimed him, making him want to give this woman excruciating pleasure, to give her a memory she'd never forget, to demand her complete surrender of everything she was, good and bad, light and dark, inside and outside until there was nothing left he didn't own. ~pg. 249


    Her scent still haunted him, and Slade swore he'd never be able to go to a carnival again without remembering her heady sugary scent, like spun cotton candy in his mouth when he tasted her. Instead, he did the right thing. Tucked the blanket carefully around her legs, smoothed back her tumbled hair, and pressed a kiss to her forehead. She smiled in her sleep, and if he had a heart left to give, it would've broken right there. ~pg. 299

    Fantastic beginning to a new series!

    I was really excited to get this book for review because I am a big fan of Probsts' writing. I loved her Marriage Bargain series so when I saw she was writing a new series of books I couldn't wait to pick it up. Searching For Someday was flirty, fun, sexy, sweet and romantic all in one!




    So Kate is a matchmaker. Not just any matchmaker though, she has what her family considers a gift in that she can touch two people and determine if they are soul mates or not. She doesn't have the same feelings about her gift because she's lost several potential dates to other people due to her touch ability. Always the perpetual bachelorette she can't seem to find what she's looking for. When Slade Montgomery walks into her office in order to protect his baby sister from Kate's matchmaking business the universe throws her a curve ball. Trying to find a match for Slade is a piece of cake for her until she accidentally touches him and feels "it". That spark she gets when she knows she's found someones soul mate. The only problem is he isn't what she wants. AT ALL. Denying what she knows deep down and Slade's many advances despite her attempts to hook him up with other women, Kate faces losing something she has relied on to run her business.




    Kate was the typical laid back, independent young woman just trying to run a business and live her life. I really enjoyed her character. She wasn't overly annoying as most females can be. She was sassy and had an inner vulnerability about her that made me want to protect her. I usually relate to women who are strong and tough but Kate proved I can also connect with a woman who is mild mannered and kind of quiet, especially around men. She's been so busy finding love for everyone else that she hasn't taken any time to really find what she wants. I loved the idea of her being able to touch a couple and tell if they were meant to be together. This made for some interesting scenes especially when she was out on a date with someone and ended up losing out to someone else when her gift acted up. She's had some bad relationships in the past that has made her kind of retreat into herself and that was something I could absolutely identify with. She needed someone to break down her defenses and open her up a bit and Slade was that perfect person.




    Ah Slade. He wasn't a guy I liked all that much at first. Being a divorce lawyer he was very controlled and liked his life in order in every sense. When he first comes into the picture his intentions are to find a flaw in Kate's business model so his sister doesn't get hurt. SO yeah he comes across as a giant penis wrinkle but the more he spends time learning about her business and seeing how her and her friends run things he becomes a little more likable. He wasn't expecting Kate to get under his skin and his outlook on love and forever has been skewed by his own nasty divorce not to mention the cases he works on a daily basis has surely given him reason to stay away from emotions. I loved his interactions with Kate even though he tried so hard to keep his feelings in check it became more difficult the more he learned about her. They had explosive chemistry and the more they denied it the hotter it seemed to get between them. Watching Kate slowly open him up made me like him a whole lot more than I originally did. Plus it didn't hurt that he genuinely cared about her disabled dog Robert. You have to love a man who loves dogs!




    I was pleasantly caught off guard by the fact that this turned out to feature some of my favorite characters from Probsts' previous series. Specifically a character named Wolfe who captured so much of my attention in The Marriage Merger, the last book in the Marriage Bargain series, that I was hoping he would get his own story. From the hints given in Searching For Someday I have a distinct feeling he will most certainly get his and oh how juicy it will be! I love when characters from one series I love cross over and we get a look at what they have been up to. In a way it's almost like their story isn't over, even if it's only a brief look. 




    Searching For Someday was a romantic roller coaster ride between Kate and Slade. Stories of opposites attracting remains one of my favorite types of stories to read and there are no characters more opposite than the free spirit Kate and the stuffy divorce lawyer Slade. I really enjoyed all the ups and downs between these two and watching them fight their feelings was what made this such a fun read for me. The cover says this is a "Sparkling new series" and I have to agree 100%. The start of this new series has me very intrigued and in a holding pattern of delicious anticipation for what is next to come. This is definitely a book you will enjoy if you like sexy romance, hilarious characters and a fun story line that will keep you guessing from one page to the next.

    Delightful, Charming!

    Better watch what you ask for, you just might get it! In an attempt to prove that Kate’s matchmaking service is a fraud, Slade, the hyper-alpha divorce attorney challenges Kate to find him his perfect mate. Little does he know that Kate has a special sense that can accurately detect who is right for another person. She feels an electric jolt when the match is right, need I say more? One touch and the sparks are flying, too bad these two could not appear more opposite in nature, completely incompatible, totally wrong for each other, according to statistics. But what about their hearts?

    Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst is a delightful read! Filled with a touch of humor, a sensitive and caring heroine and a hard-headed hero, not to mention the captivating Robert, this is a perfect pick-me-up read to enjoy and feel good about! Nothing too deep, no great angst, just a cute tale of two opposites who will try anything to avoid their attraction!

    I received an ARC edition from Gallery Books in exchange for my honest review.

    Don't recommend

    I really dislike a book where it takes the main characters the whole book to be confident enough to try a relationship. It just didn't seem to move along. I usually like this author, but I really have come to not like stories that don't have enough meat to move along and deal with "real" problems vs characters dealing with their own insecurities for the whole book. I found it a little boring and will not read the rest of the books in the series.

    Very good story, however, not to thrill with the epilogue. Mommy/ Daddy & Robert, just a little weird for me.

    ¿Yeah, a matchmaker and a divorce lawyer. That¿s got success

    <b>“Yeah, a matchmaker and a divorce lawyer. That’s got success written all over it.”</b>

    Kate and two of her close friends own a matchmaking service. Slade's baby sister moves out of his home after recovering from a breakup and becomes a client of the matchmaker. Slade is convinced that they are going to take advantage of his sister and fleece her out of her money. Slade attampts intimidation, but when he still has no answers he decides to become a client as a way to prove that the company is a fraud. This is Kate and Slade's love story and it is filled with smiles, hilarity and a bit of heartbreak. This was a fairly quick read with plenty of chemistry and a lot of heart. The characters have more authenticity than in most other books and are very realistic. There are even characters from Jennifer's Marriage to a Billionaire series present in this book as well as the infamous Book of Spells, but if you have't read those - don't worry because it takes nothing away from this book. I would recomend this book to anyone looking for a sweet read with an HEA.

    5 Stars!!!!

    I loved this book it was different from some of the books that I have read lately. The story line is still girl meets boy and they fall in love but the journey in this book is different. Slade Montgomery is a Divorce Lawyer that does not believe in love or happily ever after. Kate Seymour owns a Matchmaking service. Electricity sparks between the two that is off the charts. Can Kate change Slade’s mind about love? Read to find out I don’t want to spoil it. 

    This story covers the gamut of emotions like love, lots of laughter, heartbreak and happy tears. Let me tell you this book had some mega-angst goin’ on. I wanted to pull my hair out several times in this book. I literally had what felt like a fist in my chest while reading this book. I wanted to slap Slade and Kate silly and tell them to wake the heck up! Jennifer can write and amazingly HOT love scene and Slade was a hot alpha male. Beautiful. I love Jennifer’s writing style it flows so well and keeps you on your toes. 

    I loved all the secondary characters and hope they all get their HEA’s. I especially loved Robert the dog. The epilogue in this book was so sweet and touching I dropped a few tears. 

    I have read many of Jennifer’s books and am a huge fan. This series continues my love of Jennifer Probst writing and books I would highly recommend this story to anyone that loves a good book. I am really looking forward to the next installment of this series “Searching for Perfect” due out April 29, 2014.

    We are all given "gifts" to make it through life. The

    We are all given &quot;gifts&quot; to make it through life. These &quot;gifts&quot; make us uniquely qualified to deal with life and make a difference. In Kate's instance, her &quot;gift&quot; is a little more unique... she is able to tell if two people are meant for each other by her touch.

    What would you do if you had this kind of &quot;gift&quot;? That is correct! You would get together with two of your best friends and start a Matchmaking business!

    Slade. What can we say about him? He is cynical and does not believe in love and happily ever after. Yes, he is a divorce lawyer. He has seen it all and has stopped thinking two people can find true happiness together.

    Of course Kate and Slade are bound to meet... and buck heads like two rams. This delightful story is both entertaining and uplifting. The message still remains that you must be true to yourself and believe in yourself. Two people can find happiness... you just first have to believe love is possible!

    Great, fun moments alongside some inconsistencies

    The synopsis seemed promising to clear your mind after work and spend an evening  sighing while reading a romantic romance with a touch of supernatural. Well, I'm sorry to admit that the magic did not operate on me.

    But I thought the plot was interesting. Imagine a divorce lawyer who pushes the doors of a marriage agency to find true love... All the ingredients were there to inspire comical situations and make me smile.

    Admittedly, I had some great moments with some girls evenings worthy of the Sex and the City's serie that made ¿¿me smile. Certainly also there are corrosive characters. I think especially of Kate's mother, a sexologist, hippie, who is used to smok joints...Hilarious! Or Robert, the disabled dog who knows how to make himself understand. A personal favorite of mine!

    But the two heroes have not convinced me. Kate is sexual and sensual but turns out to be a virgin of almost thirty years old. A little disturbing, don't you think ... 
    As for Slade, he alternates between being wry and a jerk afraid of commitment. 
    But mostly is the &quot; I sleep with you, and I regret it the next morning&quot; that bored me. Very childish for adults in search of true love...

    In short, there are some great, fun moments alongside some inconsistencies a bit unrealistic. But many reviews on Goodreads prove that this story has charmed many readers...So you need to make your own opinion by reading this light romance ...

    I am a pretty big fan of Jennifer Probst so when I seen this new

    I am a pretty big fan of Jennifer Probst so when I seen this new series out I had to check it out! While the book kept me very interested I wish we could have learned a little more about Slades sister . Kate seemed like a person that knew what she wanted and Slade had the &quot;snap crackle pop&quot; about him that Kate wanted!! All in all it was a pretty good book and I look forward to the next book in the series.
