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’m a big fan of Jennifer’s Search For series and this latest addition definitely didn’t disappoint. And I know you totally shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but when it’s as gorgeous as this one is, I can’t help it. Just look!
I really liked the characters in this book. Both Gen and Wolfe were wonderful.They’ve both made appearances in the previous books in this series, so they weren’t entirely new to me, but I liked that. I wish now that I’d read The Marriage Merger before reading this book though. I think I would’ve had more of a connection to Wolfe and that would’ve only enhanced my experience with this book. But, back to Gen and Wolfe… I loved that they were friends first. There was a great slow burn of sexual tension as they figured things out and that made it all the more realistic for me. My heart broke for Wolfe with the things he dealt with in his past and Gen was dealing with her own share of bad things. These two were easy to root for.
My only complaint was that the book felt a little long at times. I liked their story and was connected enough to them that it kept my attention most of the time, but my mind did start to wander a bit. I was always pulled back into it pretty quickly so it didn’t cause a big problem.
All in all, a great book with steam and swoon – and a few tears. I can’t wait to read Arilyn’s story in Searching for Always. Thankfully it’s not all that far away now. 🙂
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
