The Book Barista: Searching For Perfect by Jennifer Probst



I received an ARC of Searching For Perfect from NetGalley for my honest opinion.




 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?




My Opinion

I would like to start off saying that anything Jennifer Probst writes I LOVE!

My inner nerd girl loved Nate.  What’s not to love?! He’s a brilliant rocket scientist aerospace engineer, he’s well read *cough* Kama Sutra and Cosmo *cough*.  He’s kind and sexy (his sexiness was made more obvious after a makeover) and he’s not afraid of commitment.  He’s perfect, right?!

Kennedy sees the potential in Nate and sets out to give him a makeover.  Along the way, she realizes how wonderful he is but doesn’t feel he is for her. As his matchmaker, she’s determined to find the perfect woman for him.  In this book, we get insight into Kennedy’s past experiences that have contributed to her weight issues.  Nate totally understands her but she sure doesn’t make it easy.

I loved their journey, even though I wanted to have a word with Kennedy a time or two.

It was so nice to see characters from previous books.  It felt like I was visiting old friends.  One of my favourites is Wolfe.  I nearly jumped up and down with glee when he made his appearance.  [Note:  I pray to the book Gods and to Jennifer Probst that Wolfe will get his own book. Pretty please???!!!]

This book definitely gets five steamy cups from me.  I’m looking forward to more in this series.
