A cute and steamy love story with a twist of magic...

I always enjoy when a romance novel adds a slice of the paranormal within its plot. In this case, Kate has the "magic touch" and can determine whether or not couples are soul mates by her physical response to a single touch. She has built a successful matchmaking business surrounding her "skill", but sadly the one person she has trouble finding true love for is herself.

Enter Slade ... The sexy, arrogant, irresistible divorce attorney

Wrong read for me :(

Actually, I had decided not to read this book because the heroine was a virgin and the hero was a divorced man.

Later, I decided to give it a chance because of the paranormal touch in it – I wanted to see if it was going to be interesting.

Also, some friends encouraged me and I was curious. Now, I apologize to my dear friends (who liked it) for my negative review about it. It seems my initial instincts are usually correct because I know myself. I am really sorry to say that

Could a divorce lawyer and a matchmaker ever work out? Well, Kate is about to find that out since she felt the touch for the first time.
Let me explain: Kate has some kind of a magical touch. She feels a spark every time she feels a true connection between two people. So she uses that gift to help people find their true love and create a matchmaking company that is becoming quite successful.
She never felt that touch with herself, until the day Slade, the divorce lawyer becom

Luckily, I found this book at our local bargain bookstore (I love you Booksale! Haha!) and bought it immediately. I've heard nothing but great things about Jennifer Probst's novels and I'm glad to say I really like this book.

Kate Seymour can sense if there's a love connection between two people. It's her gift which benefited as one of the owners of a matchmaking agency called Kinnections. For years, she's been an expert on matchmaking and as for her love life, she's still searching for her soul

I am a fan of miss Probst work. So when i got the audio book for Searching for Someday, i just have to read it. See her works always have this cute magical love spell. And the banter between her characters are the most fun battle of sexes.

This book have all of those signature from miss Probst. And i think Robert deserves his own book. He is just too cute.

The storyline and characters have potential in this series, but unfortunately I found Searching for Someday to be pretty standard.

Lots of the usual tropes have been thrown in for good measure, all of which I am starting to find a bit mind numbing now. I didn't particularly connect with either the H/h, Kate (view spoiler) even with her 'magical' touch and quirkiness was all very grey and lacking colour for me.

Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst was just an enjoyable read for me. I enjoyed reading the Marriage to a Billionaire series so I knew this was going to be good. In some ways I enjoyed this book a bit more.

What would you do to find your perfect mate? Do you really believe in true love? Would you put your trust into the hands of people you don’t know to hopefully find the love of your life?

GOOD: The characteristics of a 3 star book include: interesting characters, a decent storyline, and unique story elements; there was something about the story that I didn’t completely connect with; the book is a solid read. I would recommend it to a friend.

Searching for Someday is a sweet, comical read Jennifer Probst is known for.

This story is a little bit of a mess.

There's Kate, who is the owner of a matchmaking agency. She has a paranormal thing going on and can "feel" it when to people are meant to be. Our H is Slade, a divorced divorce lawyer who is cynical and does not believe in love.

This could have been an interesting setting, but unfortunately it is not. There are some things that make the story a little weird:

When I found out that the premise of the book is about a matchmaker and a divorce lawyer, I knew I need to read it. I'm always game for a romantic comedy to lighten up my day. Too much angst is bad for my well-being.

Slade Montgomery is a divorce lawyer, cocky, overbearing and cynical to love in general. After going through his own divorce and witnessing his little sister, Jane spiraling to the deep end after being dump, he no longer believe in happily ever after.

But, oh wait, we forgot the part where said matchmaker won't pull her head out of her ass, making this have exhausting written all over it.

Sweet romance read

Searching for Someday by Jennifer Probst was a light, enjoyable read.This is the first book in the Love Spells Series. For anyone who has read Probst's series called Marriage to a Billionaire you will find this series is very similar. I am a fan of that series so when I saw an opportunity to get an ARC of this title I was so excited. The writing style and storytelling was very similar to the Marriage of a Bill

Kate runs a matchmaking business, Kinnections. She has a slight advantage compared to other matchmaking businesses, however. Kate has the magic touch that lets her know when two people are a perfect match for each other.

When Kate gets a new client, she also gets the new client's overprotective brother, Slade. Slade has seen his sister go through some things he isn't eager to relive so he's determined to make sure this matchmaking agency doesn't get their claws into

“I’m a divorce lawyer and a man who’s attracted to you. You’d be crazy to trust me.”

Jennifer Probst is one of those rare authors whose every single book I’ve not only read, but simply adored, and her latest novel is no exception. She is known for her relentless romantic streak, for her written-in-the-stars connections between strong heroines and dominant males, and the overwhelming sexual chemistry between them.

Searching for Someday is a new spin off from the Marriage with a Billionaire series by Jennifer Probst. Just like its predecessor, this novel is a delightfully romantic and fun read. Ms. Probst wrote a love story between a hopeless romantic and a skeptic finding their Someday when they least expected.
