In this 3rd installment in the Searching Series Jennifer Probst delivers a fantastic friends turned lovers story that will melt your heart and soul! When we start out on this journey it’s Genevieve’s wedding day, and shes nervous, rightfully so. Her impending marriage is making her feel caged and trapped, making her feel like the only way out is to jump from the church window! She falls into the arms of her best friend Wolfe, who just happens to be in the right place, at the right time. Now in the previous books we didn’t learn much about Wolfe so he was always sort of that dark and mysterious man that you couldn’t help but wonder about.
Wolfe is sexy, all bad boy tattooed and pierced, however the outside doesn’t really match the inside… Insides his mushy and soft and has a heart of gold. Unfortunately his past has hardened him and he shows that side to very few people in life. One being his adopted family, and two Genevieve. They became BFF’s during their college years and as time went on they grew closer and closer… That was until Genevieve started working at the hospital and was swept up by David, the surgeon, things began to change. She was busy, he was busy, and David didn’t like them being friends! They grew apart, and until she literally fell into his arms Wolfe was not having an easy time with their separation, so having the chance to whisk her away from her doubts about marrying David, he became her saving grace.
Genevieve’s struggles through out the book truly are heartbreaking. To learn and discover what she was burying when it came to David was truly sad… Luckily her best friends were all there to help her through this time, including Wolfe, who after one HOT KISS, turned her world upside down. She’s forced to take new directions because of her decision to become a run away bride. But all she really wants is to find that happiness she used to have and she feels like Wolfe is the key to that. Unfortunately he has struggles of his own, and doesn’t believe in Happily Ever After… When their friendship turns to friends with benefits, they both risk getting burned in the end. I absolutely love their dynamic together, in and out of the bedroom! Wolfe is compassionate as a lover and a friend, and when push comes to shove, they both learn valuable lessons about themselves and each other.
This one for me started off a little slow but once the story got moving and the pages started to sizzle, just like all of her books, I was glued to my reader and furiously flipping the pages to see what would happen next. Unlike the previous books in this series, Jennifer adds a little bit of mystery and tension to this book that will set you on edge and have your heart pounding. I really enjoyed Genevieve and Wolfel’s story and I highly recommend it along with the other 2 in this series! I love all of these ladies and their leading men, and honestly I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next!
