Kate has given up on love-at least for herself.  She is both blessed and cursed with the ability to sense a romantic connection between two people-a gift that her family passed down for generations.  When Kate launches her own matchmaking company, Kinnection, with her two best friends in a cozy New York town, she has to put aside her own romantic disasters to make her business a success.

But when a furious man stalks into her office and accuses her business of being a scam, Kate is given the ultimate challenge to prove herself.  Slade puts himself in her hands and asks Kate to find him love.  Enraged at his arrogance but stubbornly eager to prove herself, Kate agrees, dedicating herself to the journey of finding him love...only to find herself falling for him along the way.


ARC received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review...

I must start the review by saying how much I enjoyed this book!  It was like watching a really good romance movie.  The kind where you know what the ending is going to hold but watching the characters get there is the best part, in fact its what makes the movie so good.  That's exactly how I felt about Searching for Someday.  

The story starts out introducing you individually to both Kate and Slade.  This allows you to get a feel for who they are and what's currently going on in their lives.  Slade is a high-powered successful divorce attorney who is fiercely protective of his baby sister.  Scarred from both his past and his profession he doesn't believe in true love or happily ever afters.  Kate on the other hand is a successful entrepreneur of a match-making business and not only does she believe in love, happiness and soul-mates she also has a sixth-sense and knows when two people are matched perfectly.  However, with this gift also comes a curse because she can feel when two people are meant to be together, she hasn't felt any of the guys she's dated where her true soul mate and after countless failed attempts finds herself alone, frustrated and needing to take a break from the dating world.

Needless to say upon their first meeting their beliefs clash, sparks fly and they're each left determined to prove the other wrong.  Frustrations and doubt aside neither one can stop thinking about the other and if these two ever give into the sexual tension they share it'll explode!

The story and romance between Kate and Slade was a gradual build-up, which in this case was perfect.  The attraction, chemistry and eventual love wouldn't have been realistic if they had jumped right in upon first touch.  It was essential for each of them to fight their inner demons and struggle through their own fears before embracing their true feelings and going after what they really wanted.  In the end readers get a light, fun heart-warming read.  Don't worry there is also plenty of good smut for those of us who also enjoy that in our reading endeavors!

You should definitely take the time to read this book when it releases, November 26th, what better way to spend your Thanksgiving holiday!  Also for those of you who are fans of Jennifer's Marriage to a Billionaire series you will be excited to know there are appearances in this story from some of you favorite characters of that series.  Pre-Order your copy of Searching for Someday today.
