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 extraordinaire.
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 harbors deep-seated insecurities from her tormented past. 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 am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
Searching for perfect is the second in the "Search for" series. Recently, Probst concluded the "Married to a Billionaire" series which started and finished strong. In this new story line, she uses a match-making service (Kinnections) as her platform. In the first book Kate, the owner, found her match. In this one, Kennedy finds hers. As with most of these plots, you kind of know what coming. Probst adds in enough suspense, detail and mystery to keep the listener ttitalated. I like the depth of her characters.
The universe of characters in the series grows stronger, which is necessary element to any series. Although this is definitely not a YA adult romance, the sultry bits are quite restrained and not the focus. This novel emphasizes the strength of the main character (Kennedy) and her determination to resist change.
Madeleine Maby does an exceptional job at narration. She had narrated many other of Probst's novel. This novel stands alone without reading novel one. You could read novel 2 and then novel 1 without too many spoilers. In conclusion, I recommend this novel and the series. Keep them coming.
It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, we can't go wrong with Madeleine Maby! I love Jennifer Probst books, they are always entertaining! This is one of my favorites so far.
I loved Nate character, he was a perfect nerd. He was so direct with women, I totally got them. I wished more men would be more direct like them. There was some parts that I couldn't stop laughing.
I'm never disappointed in Madeleine, she brings it all together. She gets into her character and does a great job!
Kenni drove me crazy, I can understand her insecurities, but she kept bringing up the past. The touchy scene was the bedroom, when Kenni and Nate see each other at Jena's engagement party and Wolf was in the middle of Nate professing his love to Kenni.
What was a cliffhanger for me was Jena's trouble, when is Jena's and Wolf's story going to come out? Overall, it's a great book to listen too!
I love when a story can make you laugh. this plot is fresh for current times and really pulled me in and made me laugh. I love the main man. I love that he struggled so much with dating. I think the nerdy element is what really caught my attention. and to forewarn the reader, the sex scenes are very steamy.
The intimate scenes with Kennedy and Nate were the best! Characters are very likable --
The taste testing!
There are three more characters that can be developed in this series. Can't wait to read what is upcoming!
I really liked that the male in this story wasn't an 'Alpha', yet he was still funny and sexy. It was refreshing because this is the first story I have listened to that the guy wasn't a dominating control freak, who was perfect looking in every way. Kennedy's attraction to Nate developed over time.
Searching for someday...the first book in the series. There were similar storylines in each one.
Yes, and I did...may have not been the most productive thing to do this long weekend, but it sure was enjoyable.
Normally I like books that are full of smexyness. There was only a little of that in this one....but it sure was good.
This one started off a little slower than the first one but once the rhythm was established the pace was picked up
If it weren't for the loveable nerd in this book it would have been a 1.5-2 at very best. If you're looking for a quirky love story, stop here.
Okay. I'm a fan of Madeleine Maby and Jennifer Probst both and this series is great so far but there are just some chapter in this book that I couldn't concentrate on because there seem to be some kind of recording voice in the background. And I'm not imagining it. I listened for it too when it seems to have gone away but then a few chapter after and it happens again. Anyway, besides that, the book is good just like the last. Can't wait for the next one.
