Searching for Always (Searching For #4) Jennifer Probst
ARC received for honest review
Do opposites attract? In Jennifer Probsts fourth installment of her Searching For series that is the question. Officer Stone Petty is hot tempered and placed on leave after a domestic abuse call. He is forced into anger management with Arilyn Meadows, a health food eating, dog loving, spiritual yoga instructor who refuses to let Stone get to her. Both have been burned by love in the past but the physical chemistry between them is too much to avoid. Jennifer Probst does a great job of writing that chemistry into the story to let the reader feel the tension between the characters. I had a hard time putting this book down to sleep! Plus, who doesn’t want to imagine this hunky officer with chihuahua named Pinky?
I missed the first three books in this series but I had no problem with the story or the characters. Yes there is some reference to them meeting before and there are characters from previous books, but the story was its own and the book was great as a standalone. Of course meeting the other characters in this book I will be going back and reading the previous books in the series. If this book is any indication of what I can expect from the others, I will be one-clicking today! Kudos Jennifer Probst for a great read and drawing me into this series!
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Jennifer Probst sparks a blissful mind-body connection as her “sexy, satisfying” (Kirkus Reviews) new series continues!
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.
