    Best one by far

    For every book I have read from Jennifer Probst, they seem to get hotter and hotter with more intensity. With each book I have sat here saying to myself "This is my favorite one, so and so is my new book boyfriend." But for Searching for Always I can seriously sit here and say to myself "I need to go break the law." Read the book and you will know why. Arilyn Meadows - From previous books you would think she would be the type of person with save the planet with a great up-brining. Your only half right. She is way more then that. She even have wants that I am pretty sure most of us want. I know I do. Officer Stone Petty - What can I say but damn you can hand cuff me any day of the week. From his up-bringing and how he chose his career I have deep respect for him. Yes even though he is a character in a book. This is by far my favorite book for 2015 by Jennifer Probst. I highly recommend you check it out.

    I want to move to Verily

    I had a song floating around my head when I was reading this - Holding Out For A Hero. I think Jennifer has been holding out on us because Stone Petty is everything we need in a book hero. Saving the best to last maybe - how can you top Slade, Nate & Wolfe? You don't - you just add to the group of perfect fictional man Jennifer has given us in this wonderful series.

    Opposites Attract

    4.5 Stars! When I started reading SEARCHING FOR ALWAYS, I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy it as I had the previous books in the series, but Ms. Probst proves that she’s still got it. She creates magic by throwing together a man who has buried all his pain and anger at the hand life dealt him under a brash, macho exterior and a woman who worked hard to channel all of her pain into a rewarding lifestyle dedicated to doing good. These two people who on the surface are as different as can be, actually fit each other and are very alike on the inside, with a shared a need for the same things – someone to love and cherish them unconditionally, someone they can also love wholeheartedly. Arilyn and Stone’s first meeting was hostile and nothing has changed since then. Now Stone is forced to attend anger management classes taught by her, getting along will definitely be a trial. As they spend more time together, Arilyn sees that that Stone’s abrasive behavior is a cover and she’s determined to get him to open up. Well, good for her because Stone is having way too much fun pushing her buttons. There’s got to be some emotion under all of that love and light, right? From the first time Arilyn was introduced in the series, she was my least favorite of the four friends because she came across as a goody-two-shoes with her hippie lifestyle, but as I read further I discovered that beneath that zen exterior was a seething mass of emotions and fears and desires and I gained respect for her strength, especially how she had turned her life around. Arilyn is honest, open and all about maintaining balance in life which includes yoga and all its trapping, keeping her body healthy and eating organic foods, no meat. Stone is the opposite in every way. He’s got his emotions under serious lock down and enjoys his beer, fast food, coffee and cigarettes (at least until he quit) and no matter how much they fight it, then can’t resist the attraction between them, so how can they move from adversaries to lovers and how can a relationship between them work? I really liked Arilyn after getting to know her and I loved that she was upfront about her feelings for Stone and even when he got scared of what was developing between them, she was courageous enough to step back and give him the space he needed. Stone is this hulking, big guy whose’s also very sweet. Even with their differences, he’s just the person to give her a taste of the raw, uncontrollable passion she’s always secretly wanted but never got. There are so many enjoyable and funny moments and characters in this book. I especially enjoyed catching up with the couples from the previous books as well as those from her “Marriage” series and I laughed so hard reading about their first dinner date and the veggie lasagna. There were also some very touching moments like Stone bonding with Pinky for the first time. Ms. Probst took things that separately may not be everyone’s cup of tea (yoga, meditation and pets) and combined them into a heartfelt but lighthearted story of opposites attracting and finishes off the series in a spectacular fashion.

    I just loved Stone and Arilyn

    I love Jennifer Probst's writing and the Searching For series is on of my favorite. So, of course, I was extremely happy to get my hands on an early copy of this amazing book :) The story flows like a charm and it is so interesting and sweet that I simply couldn't put it down :) The characters are intriguing as always and the writing is superb. Not that there is anything else that could be expected by Jennifer Probst :) Stone is quite the hot lead character. With his rough looks, domineering behavior, protective alpha tendencies and uniform, I don't think there will be a woman who won't salivate after him. He is also broken. The demons he carries with him, chase him in the dark and do not leave him rest. Which considering the tragedy he lived through as kid, it is more than understandable. But he also carries guilt on his shoulders, which is actually not the right place for it. All that just makes him that much more pantie melting. And when you add also his dirty mouth and his ability to burn the sheets with his exploits he is quite close to perfect ;) Add to that his complete opposite. Or in other words Arilyn and you have an explosive combination :D Where he is intense and brooding, she is relaxed and free spirited. Or at least she tries to be until one too many things go wrong in her life. And for some reason the only person who can give her back her spark of life is the one who also pushes all her buttons, the one and only Officer Stone Petty. I have to say that their constant bickering results in some quite funny scenes. And when that doesn't happen, the resulting hot scenes are simply breathtaking ;) So in a few words, this is definitely a recommended summer read :) The story is fun, hot and intriguing. It has romance and tenderness, cleverly intertwined with humor and heartbreak. And it is so entertaining that you won't even feel the time passing ;) So just a gentle warning. Don't start reading if you don't have a lot of time. You will simply be late :D So just get your #oneclick finger working and start reading :D This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.

    . . . .

    Stone and Arilyn are complete opposites with some pretty intense chemistry. He's everything she didn't think she wanted, she's everything he doesn't think he deserves. This gives way to great banter between them as well as some steamy love scenes. I loved the way Stone knew how to push her buttons and get her flustered. But the true star for me is the rescued dog, Pinky. I fell a little in love with Stone when he started caring for her, especially the way he would take her everywhere with him. Stone's declaration of love is so perfect for him, a little on the rough side, but straight from the heart. It's not my favorite of the series, but it is still an enjoyable read. I'm excited to see that the series is not ending with Arilyn's story, can't wait to see what Kinnections has in store for the next couple. I received an ARC via NetGalley for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.
