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?
I received this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This was my first book in Jennifer’s Searching For Series (I’ve read her Marriage series); however, I WILL be backtracking to read the first two books. You don’t need to read them in order to read this one, but I want to read Kate and Kennedy’s respective stories. And I will not be missing Arilyn’s book, something tells me that one is going to be full of the best possible tension! Anyhoo…getting back to Gen and Wolfe *sigh* I love Wolfe. I fell for Wolfe on page 10. Too soon? I don’t think so. I really can’t say a bad thing about him as far as book BF’s go; he’s the whole package wrapped up with a bow. Yes, he’s got issues from his past that still haunt him, but he’s an incredible package I’d gladly take. Genevieve was my surprise, while she got herself out of a not so good situation, there were moments where I truly thought she was going to cave and revert to her old ways. But, she surprised me! I can’t express how proud I was of her throughout this entire book; she was strong, independent, and resilient. She had no trouble putting others in their place when needed. My only disappointment was that one character did NOT develop a painful, flesh-eating disease for which there was no cure, or adequate pain management like I had hoped lol. Searching for Beautiful was exactly that- Beautiful. It was a beautiful story of two friends perfect for each other. Their jokes, banter, the affection and love they had for one another had me yelling at my book hoping they’d see in them what I saw. Jennifer made me laugh and cry, and Wolfe made me fan myself, which in my book is always the tell-tale indicator of a great read.
