Searching for Someday
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 ...more
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 ...more

"The waitress glided over and placed the check discreetly in the middle of the table. Kate held her breath, knowing this was the ultimate test. A man who paid for dinner on the first date had values. It was a make-or-break moment."
Yeah, this book isn't going to work for me. Look, the passage didn't send me into a Hulk rage. When I was dating, the men offered to pay on the first date, and it didn't bother me. But I always offered to pay for myself, too. And if my date accepted, it would ...more
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)[ Another 20 something virgin! (hide spoiler)] even with her 'magical' touch and quirkiness was all very grey and lacking colour for me.
Slade had pote ...more

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.

Love is a funny thing… If we don’t love ourselves first, the emotion can be redirected in harmful ways.

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

He lowered his mouth and stopped inches from hers.
