I've really enjoyed all the books I've read thus far from this series. I busted out laughing a couple of times with this one. Plus, I especially liked how Isabella went about getting Liam to forgive her. You CANNOT go wrong with Star Wars!!!
Searching for Disaster by Jennifer Probst is a 2016 Pocket Star publication.

This story may be short, but it sure packs a punch.

Isabella, “Izzy” MacKenzie fights addiction every day, but is holding her own, putting her life back together. But six years ago, a one-time encounter with sexy police officer William, ‘Liam’ Devine still haunts her.

Liam has never really moved past that one unforgettable night he spent with Izzy, but she chose her life of drugs over him.

It’s a bittersweet feeling to say goodbye to the Searching For Series since this is one series that I absolutely adored and cherished form Jennifer Probst. If you have been following the series, then you are all aware that Kate, Kennedy, Genevieve and Arilyn all got kinnected to their perfect match and so now it’s time for Isabella MacKenzie to get kinnected to her soul mate.

Questo piccolo gioiello breve è un piacere da leggere esattamente come gli altri libri di questa serie deliziosa e romantica, che ci ha regalato una galleria di protagonisti semplicemente favolosi. Parlo delle donne dell'agenzia, ragazze dal carattere forte e determinato, così diverse tra loro eppure così amiche, che con grande spirito da imprenditrici hanno creduto in un idea e l'hanno fatta diventare un business, ma anche degli uomini che il destino ha messo al loro fianco, dal cinico avvocato ...more

That’s how I would describe Searching for Disaster, the final installment in Jennifer Probst’s excellent Searching For series.

Why? Because it was a fabulous, heartfelt and sexy novella—which is unsurprising, given the quality of the previous books in this series—but it was also an ending. And honestly, I love this series enough to want it to never end.

I’ve been intrigued by Isabella MacKenzie, twin sister of Searching for Beautiful’s Genevieve MacKenzie, for a while now. Her story wa

I'm just going to start by saying that SEARCHING FOR DISASTER by Jennifer Probst is hands down the best book I've read this year!! I have loved every one of the previous books in her Searching For series and this one is my favorite of all. All I can say is I really connected with these characters and every high and low they went through to end up together.

The story begins when Isabella and Liam met six years ago. They have an almost magical connection that both of them recognized, but for reason

I will admit, I’ve only read a few of the books in the series, but hey, it’s OK, because they all can be read as a stand-alone. I wanted to read Izzy’s story after reading her twin Gen’s story a few months back, and Searching for Disaster did not disappoint!

Izzy has a troubled past, she was an addict and has ruined a lot of relationships in her life. Six years ago she made a decision that would alter her life for the worse and now that she’s clean and sobe

For something so short, this story was incredibly deep. Isabella Mackenzie is an addict. She's been clean for two years and has made her amends. Trouble is that she doubts her own worthiness when it comes to happily ever after, which is just what Liam is offering her. He sees her... the good, the bad and the ugly. And loves her anyway. It's up to her to love herself enough to take a leap of faith with him.

TBH, I haven't read any other book in this series. And I'm glad I didn't. Because... based

When that special connection with a dog is made you don't try to take it away from Izzy and Liam, "Izzy raised her chin, ready to fight for her puppy. No one was going to separate them. Liam inched toward her to unite in the stand against Arilyn." There was one scene I loved, I think the puppies are playing matchmakers, and in turn driving their owners bonkers, and Liam his reactions are entertaining, “are you kidding me? I have no interest in shenanigans either. Yes, you’re hot and I want you b

Searching for Disaster is Jennifer Probst latest book – and sadly the last one – in ‘the Searching For series’. Like the other books in the series, matchmaking company Kinnection and ‘the book of spells’ play a role in the story. This book tells the story of Izzy, the twin sister of Gen (her story is told in Searching for Beautiful) and police officer Liam.

My Thoughts:

Searching for Disaster was a sweet little page-turning novella, and the perfect way to end the Searching For Series. I am going to miss the characters that I have come to know and love. They are all unique and special. Ms. Probst has brought readers such real characters, with everyday problems, as well as the magic of love, unbreakable friendships, and strong family ties. When you delve into a story by Ms. Probst, you are taken to another place. I get lost and enraptured in her stori

After several years of struggling she finally managed to get herself back on track and now she has a job she loves and a nice home in a cozy town named Verily. She also has her family by her side again, something she couldn't be more grateful for. Everyone has forgiven her, but is Isabella ready to forgive herself?

Jennifer Probst’s books remind me of delicious chocolate cake. Bursting with flavor, decadently rich, the Searching For series is very satisfying. Searching for Disaster is slightly different in flavor and approach. This story is more like a delicate pastry. It is multi-layered and delicate with subtle tastes. By book 4.6 we are familiar with the town of Verity, and we know how Kinnections works, but Izzy and Liam have a different kind o

Thank you kindly to Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books for the free review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

This is the first novella I've read in Jennifer Probst's "Searching For" series, but seeing that I really enjoyed the three full length novels I've already read, I figured I would enjoy this one as well. My expectations were set high, but Probst surely delivered here - I absolutely loved every moment of this short, sweet read!

This is the final novella in this series by Jennifer Probst. All of the Kinnections have been made! I hadn't read the blurb before grabbing this one. I love the series so I wanted to finish it out. I was so surprised to find Izzy getting her HEA! She has had a rough time of it and for Liam to find her worthy of his love, just pulled at the old heartstrings.

I liked getting their back stories. I liked the nod by the author to take care of yourself--your metal and physical health--first before you

Dit boek was amazing.
Ik wachtte al superlang op een verhaal over Izzy, en toen Devine in beeld kwam dacht ik, hmm, this could be something. En fuck yeah it actually is.
Dit boek was een novella en dus aanzienlijk korter dan de andere boeken, but damn. Dit verhaal was echt sterk, supergoed geschreven en de karakters zijn amazing.

Davvero bello!
Ho adorato Liam dall'inizio alla fine, Izzy un po' meno, ma direi che posso capirla.
Anche se, ragazza mia, se nella vita hai la fortuna di trovare un uomo come Liam, è meglio se impari a farti meno problemi e afferri al volo l'opportunità!
Liam è dolcissimo e tenero, un uomo deciso, forte con dei principi e... super sexy!
Beh, questo non guasta mai!
Libro troppo breve... avrei voluto più Liam, più Han Solo e più Principessa Leila (leggendo scoprirete chi siano...)

2.5 Stars. Searching For Disaster has a somewhat unconventional start for a romance novel as it opens with a one night stand and the heroine choosing drugs over a life with the hero. Immediate sex and cocaine right upfront would probably tend to be more of a turn off for me in a romance, but here it worked, I was pulled in to Izzy and Liam’s stories. I liked that he saw right through her, it wasn’t a matter of this cop in training being oblivious to her actions, he saw it, and decided that’s not ...more

"Regrets are part of healing. You can't never take back your actions, but you can forgive, make amends, and move on."

What a perfect way to end the series! I have loved every single one of these books. The characters have all been memorable and so have their love stories. I'm sad to see it ending and I do hope the Book of Spells gets into the hands of some other lucky girl.

It's always hard to do a novella without the insta-love situation and I think Jennifer Probst had the perfect ide
