The highly anticipated third novel in the Searching For series from Jennifer Probst, “one of the most exciting breakout novelists” (USA Today), featuring a runaway bride and the man who wants to be more than just her best friend...
Genevieve MacKenzie has her life completely under control. About to wed the charming Chief doctor at the local hospital, she’s an up-and-coming surgeon with everything she could ever want. Until an escape through the church window on the day of her wedding sends her life into a tailspin...and flings her right into her best friend’s arms.
When Wolfe catches his best friend falling out a window on her wedding day, he doesn’t ask questions. He whisks her away, determined to watch over her and discover the truth behind her desperate escape. But when his feelings turn more than platonic, he realizes he may risk his most important relationship in order to protect his damaged heart, and the woman he loves.
Can Genevieve and Wolfe’s friendship turn into something deeper—or is it already too late for true love?
It's official, I have found my favourite man from this series so far!!! I had a good feeling about Wolfe when I first met him in "Searching for Perfect" and now, after reading "Searching for Beautiful", I am well and truly in love with him. My initial instincts were correct. He really was a damn fine man!! Lol!
In this third book in the series, not only did I get to know the sexy Wolfe but I also discovered more about the lovely Genevieve (or Gen, as most people called her). The story began with Gen ready to walk down the aisle to get hitched. However, she had a gut feeling that she was about to marry the wrong guy and so at the very last minute, decided to run from the church straight into her best friend's arms. And that best friend was Wolfe.
She didn't just fit into him, she completely consumed his space,
stealing his breath and cells and heart.
I loved Gen and Wolfe's characters and I enjoyed getting to know everything about them. Gen was a fun loving girl who had been stuck in the wrong relationship with entirely the wrong man. Now, she was back to take control of her life and have some fun with the support of Wolfe by her side. Wolfe was the type of man that it was easy to fall for. He was caring, generous and also showed a little bit of an alpha side to him, especially when he was around Gen. Not everything was great for Wolfe though, the man had a past that had left him irrevocably damaged. To avoid spoiling the story I don't want to go into too much detail but be prepared for your heart to ache for him. This was another reason why I fell for him in a big way.
She was clean. He was dirty. She was better off without him.
Gen and Wolfe had been the best of friends for some time but in this story, the couple's friendship was beginning to change into something more. Gen and Wolfe were secretly lusting after each other. Both began to have sexy fantasies about taking their relationship to the next level. I loved Gen and Wolfe together. There was an electrical chemistry running between the pair that made me desperate to see what would happen if they were to act on their desires. I was ready for sparks to fly!
Sure, they'd always had a connection, but the tiny simmer had exploded into a wildfire,
and he didn't know what to do. What changed? And why did he suddenly want so much more?
Sadly, things were not that easy for this couple. With neither one of them wanting to sacrifice their friendship they were both reluctant to sleep together, fearing that they would ruin everything between them. The problem was that the more time went on, the harder it was for Gen and Wolfe to resist their urges. I was certain that they were fighting a losing battle. Now at this point in the story, I found myself becoming a little bit impatient. I felt that the author was making me wait for something big to happen and I started to lose interest in the story. It felt like I was waiting forever! Thankfully, as I reached the last hour of reading, I found that everything got a lot more exciting and I was instantly hooked. The was my favourite part of the story and was well worth the wait because those sparks sure did fly. Gen and Wolfe were on fire!
"I dreamed of this for so damn long, but the reality of you is so much better."
I really enjoyed Wolfe and Gen's story. They made one sizzling pair. Now, I'm looking forward to the next book in the series, which is Arilyn's story. Although this story can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading the books in series order. That way, you will be familiar with all of the characters and avoid any spoilers. I have loved getting to know all of the characters from the series, and having the chance to catch up with them again in each book. I love to know how each couple's relationships are getting on, it brings a huge smile to my face to know that they have found their happy ever afters.
They'd entwined tight into each other's souls, so close they
were no longer individuals but burned together as one.
"Searching For Beautiful" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me!
