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?
I cannot express how much I loved this book. It deals with issues some people face on a daily basis, but also shows that they can grow and move on from the things in the past.
I adored Gen. She is motivated, and willing to give a situation her all, even when she shouldn’t. She feels awful about leaving her groom-to-be at the altar, but realizes that her gut was right. She learns what real love is supposed to be, and tries to fight it every step of the way. She has a great support system with her friends. They are there for her through everything and are fiercely protective of her.
Wolfe is an absolute gem. He is always denying himself true happiness, and is scared to take the leap. He doesn’t think he is worthy of a relationship and keeps any girls he invites home on the surface. He doesn’t want to date, he just wants to have fun.
Seeing these two work through their issues is comical at times, but they have so much to learn about each other. They become closer in their friendship and there are definitely some emotional wars they have to battle.
I have to say I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a character as much I did Gen’s fiance. He’s an ass, and just downright awful.
Definitely pick this book up, and see how Gen & Wolfe’s story unfolds.
