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 Searching for Perfect Review:

Searching for Perfect is about Kennedy, who is trying her best to stay professional, even if that means she cannot even flirt a little bit with the sexy rocket scientist Nathaniel. Fate, however, seems to have decided otherwise, and Nate is ready to everything he can to make Ken’s perfect and cold-ish façade crack so that she might fall for him too.

Second in the Searching For series, Searching for Perfect is a quick, fun and sexy read, it’s got a straight-forward plot, with likable characters and just enough intrigue to make it difficult for Ken and Nate to start something that would be great for both of them in the long run. It’s a good thing they are both very stubborn!

It was fun to see some of the characters from Searching for Someday in Searching for Perfect, too, and I hope there will be more books in this series, as I enjoy the aspect of the match-making agency in which the owners fall in love with their clients.

Written in third person point of view, past tense, it is easy to follow the characters and get to know them well. Searching for Perfect is a great read to have in your bag for your summer vacation, as it is light-hearted, romantic and sweet.

Some of my favorite quotes:

Kate’s voice softened. “You have food issues. Body issues. Perfection issues. So what? Does that make you unworthy of loving someone who wants to love you back? Love has nothing to do with perfect. It has to do with flaws, and overcoming failure, and fighting for what you want. You have always been the strongest person I’ve ever known. You used to go after what you wanted. Until now.”

His voice didn’t work. He kept trying, but it got stuck up his lungs and caught in his throat. His dick seemed to work fine, though. He rose to full staff salute and pushed painfully against his pants. This was not happening Was it? Was he dreaming or was he just completely stupid to think she ever secretly loved him at all?

Thanks for stopping by today! What would be the perfect romance to bring to the beach in your opinion? I’m still looking for more books, even if I surely have more than enough 😉
