She’s an expert in helping others de-stress, but Arilyn Meadows is running on fumes. Along with her job counseling singles seeking soul mates at the Kinnections agency in Verily, New York, she’s a yoga teacher, animal shelter volunteer, anger management therapist, and helping hand to her beloved grandfather. No time to find Mr. Right—but after discovering her yogi boyfriend in a compromising asana, Arilyn would rather dog-sit for her honeymooning friend Kate than risk her heart on another downward dog. And when police officer Stone Petty—radiating masculinity and bad-boy attitude—is sent to her for mandatory lessons in cooling off when the job gets too hot, Arilyn vows to ignore his seductive glances and sexy grin. But there’s no halting their sizzling flirtation—a red-hot, high-speed chase that’s breaking all the limits.
This fourth book in Jennifer Probst's "Searching for Series" started off as a bit of a slow burner for me, however things definitely picked up once I had hit the halfway mark and by the time I had reached the final pages, I had a huge smile on my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart. "Searching for Always" turned out to be a book that I loved. In this visit to the town of Verily, it was Arilyn's turn to find love with officer Stone Petty. I had previously met both characters before in earlier instalment of the series, so I had an idea of what I was in for with this story. Prepare yourself for a crazy and sometimes frustrating ride, but the outcome was well worth the read.
Stone realised she was even more trouble than he realized.
Because she was beginning to touch not only his body but his heart.
Poor Arilyn Meadows had no luck whatsoever with men and she just couldn't understand why. Arilyn was someone who was warm and loving, spending her spare time caring for animals, the environment and her grandfather. She did all this alongside her work at Kinnections, teaching yoga and helping to council people with anger issues. Arilyn was such a busy woman but she never once complained. I really liked her character. She was so compassionate and selfless, doing all that she did from the goodness of her heart. Arilyn truly deserved a man who would understand her passion and beliefs and support her every step of the way.
She was done chasing a man who didn't want her one hundred percent.
Stone had been right. She wasn't cut out for a one night
stand or short affair. She craved....everything.
Officer Stone Petty could not have been further away from being Arilyn's ideal man. He was the complete opposite of her. He was bad tempered and had a bad attitude. Nothing he did appealed to Arrilyn and vice versa for Stone. He just couldn't understand or respect any of Arilyn's lifestyle choices. I loved the journey that Stone's character travelled in this book. At the beginning of the story, Stone was so grumpy and hot-headed but by the end of it he had changed so much. I never thought I would say this about him, but that man truly melted my heart. It wasn't just about his relationship with Arilyn, either. I also loved the bond that he formed with Pinky the dog. They were just adorable together and at times they made me chuckle. I loved the way that Pinky had found his way into Stone's heart. Their scenes together were a joy to read.
Had he ever met a another woman who stopped
his heart cold and filled him up with emotion?
his heart cold and filled him up with emotion?
Even though Arilyn and Stone were so very different the pair shared an instant sexual attraction that only increased each time they were together. I could feel their electrical chemistry flying from my kindle, but they both refused to give in to their desires, both remaining as stubborn as each other. Arilyn and Stone thought that there was no way in hell that their relationship could work. This was where I became frustrated with the pair, I just knew that Arilyn and Stone would be smokin hot together so I was excited to watch this story play out. I was desperate to see their relationship develop and at the same time hoping that they had found a happy ending that they both deserved.
"He fucked her, possessed her, and fell in love with her in that moment."
"Searching for Always" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.
