GR's Summary:

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?

Lindy's Thoughts:

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Probst, and Searching for Beautiful was such a breathtaking, and passionate love story that swept me off of my feet.  The Marriage to a Billionaire Series was what hooked me on Ms. Probst, and her Searching For Series has been no less stunning.  With Searching for Beautiful, Ms. Probst's fans get the best of two worlds; we get many beloved characters crossing over from The Marriage to a Billionaire Series, as well as the charming characters from the Searching For Series!

Genevieve "Gen" and Wolfe have had a beautiful friendship for many years.  They have always supported one another, have confided in one another (to a certain extent,) had fun together, and considered each other best friends.  While there is attraction to one another on both of their sides, they would never jeopardize the friendship that they value more than anything else.

On Gen's wedding day, she jumps out of the church window to escape her wedding, right in to the arms of Wolfe, who was hiding out to have a smoke.  He whisks away his best friend, when she asks him to get her out of there, because she doesn't want to marry her fiancĂ©.  Wolfe takes her to Saratoga for a few days, so that she can get her head straight, and figure out what she wants out of her life.  While they are together, Gen confides in Wolfe about the abusive, manipulative, and controlling man that she almost married.  He distracts her to alleviate her guilt and sadness, and they share special moments, and an unbelievably passion filled kiss.  

When Gen returns home, Wolfe and her try to act like the kiss didn't happen, and return back to the platonic status of their friendship.  However, things are now complicated as the sexual tension and awareness builds between them, and feelings deepen.  Wolfe has a dark past and doesn't think he can make Gen happy.  Will he take a chance on love, or lose the woman that is the most important person in his life? 

Searching for Beautiful was exquisite.  I loved how Ms. Probst has the ability to make readers feel as if they are a part of the story.  The rich make-up of her characters give them life, and make them relatable and likable!  Gen was a great character.  She was intelligent, loving, compassionate, and wanted to please everyone around her.  She was so busy trying to be "perfect," that she lost herself, and her happiness along the way.  

Wolfe stole the show for me.  He was the wounded hero.  Wolfe was sweet, caring, loving, and had so much to offer.  However, he had to battle the demons from his past that made him feel unworthy of love, before he could find happiness.  

I love when best friends become lovers, and it was obvious that Gen and Wolfe were meant to be.  They brought out the best in each other, and gave one another unconditional love and acceptance.  The combination of deep friendship, evocative emotion, and intense chemistry lead to butterflies in my stomach, and goosebumps from this epic romance, filled with blazing passion, and a beautiful love like no other!

My Rating:

I give, Searching for Beautiful, by Jennifer Probst, 5 Fairytale Romance, Sexy Soulmates, "Fall in love with Wolfe," Explosive Passion Filled Stars!  Fans of Ms. Probst are going to be ecstatic over Gen and Wolfe's story!  If you haven't read anything by Ms. Probst, and enjoy amazing contemporary romance, look no further!!! 

Ro's Take on this Journey:

Searching for Beautiful, by Jennifer Probst, is one more feather in the cap of this amazing author.  Ms. Probst has done a crossover set of novels from the, Marriage to a Billionaire Series.  As readers we still have our beloved characters from the first series, brought into the new Searching for Series.  I will pick up anything written by Ms. Probst and know that it will be a life changing journey that I will want to treasure.  This novel is no different.  Each time I read a new novel in her series', I think it is my favorite!!!

Searching for Beautiful starts off with the wedding day of Genevieve, (Gen) and her controlling fiancĂ©, David.           As Gen has some time to herself, before the ceremony is ready to begin, the voice in her head keeps telling her to run for her life!  Gen has always been the good girl in the family.  She pleases everyone, always, except for the most important person of all, herself.   For the first time in her life she goes with her gut feeling.  She jumps from the church window in the bridal room, into the bush below.  Who does she find at the bottom?  None other than her best friend, and hottest man in town, Wolfe.  Wolfe is hiding out smoking, but when he see's his best friend, he takes her, and they make the greatest escape ever before anyone knows what has happened!

Wolfe whisks her to a cabin in Saratoga, and the two share a few days together that they will never forget.  There is no pressure between these two very special friends.  They have shared a rare and knowing understanding of what they have from the beginning.  Both Gen and Wolfe have secrets they have never shared.  They have never spoken of the past, only the present, until this getaway.   As their talks start going to places neither has ever dared to go, and a few too many beers, a magical kiss opens pandora's box.  One that neither can keep their minds off of.

Wolfe is a very special guy, who has made his appearance questionable, in order to keep people away.  He has what he feels is a fated past that he tries very hard to forget.  Wolfe has a sultry smile, a hard edge, a caring hand, and a broken past, all wrapped into one.  He is the best friend ever, and the most passionate, loving, vulnerable, honest, unassuming and intelligent, though never boastful man.  He will defend Gen to the ends of the earth.   As Wolfe learns of the emotional abuse she has been subjected to his fiery temper mounts to a crescendo.

The readers will go crazy for this sizzling, heart stopping, fireball of combustible sex appeal.  Gen is a beautiful, caring, loving, honest, one man woman.  She has been putting her own needs on the back burner for so long, always worked hard to succeed, and never stopped to think about what makes her happy till now. Gen must face the music.  David was the Chief Doctor at the local Hospital that she is also a doctor at.  She knows there will be consequences.  Her hard work may go down the tubes because of her decision, but she is determined to face it.

Searching for Beautiful, will leave every reader panting, frenzied, vulnerable, and wanting more!!!  Ms. Probst has outdone herself with this installment in the Searching for Series.  I savored every minute of this life changing journey, enjoyed all the past characters that I have come to love dearly, and reveled in the tantalizing love affair of Gen and Wolfe.  Will they both get past their brokenness and give in to a love of a lifetime?  Read this novel.  You won't be disappointed...I Promise!!!

My Rating:

I give, Searching for Beautiful, by Jennifer Probst, 5 Heartwarming, Tantilizing, Soul Searching,  Wolfe... Rocks ...My... World... Stars!!!
