Searching for Perfect by Jennifer Probst
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 didn’t realize how much I missed this Kinnections gang! Ned is the perfect recruit for Kennedy to take on as a client. He’s willing to take this journey head on and what a fabulous journey it is! Ming is fantastic, she’s hilarious!! I could not stop laughing at Ned/Nate’s experience in her presence, as well as his first appointment with Benny. Jennifer keeps me on my toes with this gang. I never know what obstacles from ones past will be encountered but their journey in working through these hang ups is enlightening, heartfelt, and at times funny to witness. I enjoy being a part of this group of friends and feel like one of the gang as I can point out what areas could be improved in some of their own lives…while thinking who’s story will be next. I absolutely can not wait for Gen and Wolfe’s story. I’m also highly anticipating Arilyn’s story. I liked how Nate and Ken had their own issues their were working through but wanted a more deviated story than what we got from Kate and Slade. Their personal hiccups were different but the outline was similar but still captivated me. Jennifer has me believing in these friendships and their stories and I’d welcome this gang into my own life wholeheartedly. I can’t wait for more! Give this a try and find your next crush!
