Kate has given up on love—at least for herself. She is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense a romantic connection between two people—a gift that her family passed down for generations. When Kate launches her own matchmaking company, Kinnection, with her two best friends in a cozy New York town, she has to put aside her own romantic disasters to make her business a success.

But when a furious man stalks into her office and accuses her business of being a scam, Kate is given the ultimate challenge to prove herself. Slade puts himself in her hands and asks Kate to find him love. Enraged at his arrogance but stubbornly eager to prove herself, Kate agrees, dedicating herself to the journey of finding him love...only to find herself falling for him along the way.

In Review: My Thoughts

With a sweet romance, steamy sexy times and a hint of magic, Searching for Someday was a fun, quick read. It was predictable and the characters were slightly cliche, but not in a bad way. Sometimes I want nothing more than to enjoy a sweet and sexy romance. This book delivered just that with great writing and likable characters.

They say opposites attract, and in this case, they definitely did. Kate, a professional matchmaker who doesn’t believe she’ll ever find true love, and Slade, a tough and protective alpha male who has been burnt by love in the past, made for an interesting, steamy read. The chemistry between them was obvious from even their first meeting. The book snap-crackled-and-popped with sexual tension.

Kennedy, Arilyn and Jade, the side characters, were interesting and because this is a series, I hope see each of them get their own books at some point. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with these characters. The book captivated me and left me unable to put it down as Kate and Slade fought their attraction – and occasionally each other. It was a total feel-good book.

Oh, and that epilogue? It was brilliant and ridiculously adorable. It was a perfect addition to this story. A definite “awwwww” moment for me.
