1001 DARK NIGHTS: Searching for Mine by Jennifer Probst



I'm pleased to have Jennifer with us here today and share with you all an excerpt and information from her latest release "Searching For Mine"! 

I loved it! This is a novella but you get a full story. Both characters develop throughout the story! They each have a past that affects their present and must decide if its worth it.
I love Jennifer's writing style and her story telling. Truly a gift! 

While this is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone! 



Searching for Mine 
(Searching For #4.5)
by Jennifer Probst

Blurb: 

The Ultimate Anti-Hero Meets His Match…

Connor Dunkle knows what he wants in a woman, and it’s the three B’s. Beauty. Body. Boobs. Other women need not apply. With his good looks and easygoing charm, he’s used to getting what he wants—and who. Until he comes face to face with the one woman who’s slowly making his life hell...and enjoying every moment...

Ella Blake is a single mom and a professor at the local Verily college who’s climbed up the ranks the hard way. Her ten-year-old son is a constant challenge, and her students are driving her crazy—namely Connor Dunkle, who’s failing her class and trying to charm his way into a better grade. Fuming at his chauvinistic tendencies, Ella teaches him the ultimate lesson by giving him a special project to help his grade. When sparks fly, neither of them are ready to face their true feelings, but will love teach them the ultimate lesson of all?




Also available in paperback

Excerpt


Connor trudged inside and reheated his dinner. The interior of his apartment didnt reflect the shabby exterior. Hed updated the original dull beige walls and carpet with a rich blue, and his brothers girlfriend, Kennedy, had transformed the bachelor pad into a home using a few feminine touches to brighten up the place. Hed moved from his old apartment hed shared with Nate to save money, ignoring his brothers protests that hed cover his expenses until Connor finished school.
Hell, no.
Connor had spent his life taking care of his little brother and raising him. Though Nate was now a fancy rocket scientist who used to work for NASA, Connor refused to take his charity. But he hadnt been able to afford the tuition so theyd struck a deal. Since Connor had worked three jobs to get Nate through college when he was young, Nate would front his tuition bill. Connor could live with that, knowing hed pay back his brother every dime once he got into a management position. Hed quickly moved to this apartment to save on rent and was now able to live comfortably.
He may not have fancy granite counters or stainless steel appliances, but everything worked, including the big screen TV. The furniture was secondhand, but it was solid wood mahogany, with clean, masculine lines. The extra bedroom was a nice perk, so he used it for his workout equipment and skipped the gym membership. Photos of architectural buildings and bridges filled the walls, bringing a sense of wonder and creativity to the space. His textbooks stuffed the antique bookcase, and hed created a small workspace in the corner of the living room, saving a spot for where hed hang his degree.
He pulled out his sub, cracked open his beer, and ate at the sturdy pine table while he scrolled through his iPhone and updated social media. The radiator hummed and the pipes creaked in the background. The smell of sauce and meat drifted in the air. He embraced the quiet, settled in, and enjoyed the solitude. After dinner, he powered up his laptop and did a few hours of schoolwork, finally rubbing his tired eyes around nine oclock.
To think he once had nothing to do but hang at the pub with his friends was now laughable. Most of the time, he fell asleep with his textbooks open on the table, drooling over the pages. Other than an occasional Saturday night out or hanging with his brother, his social life had dried up to an embarrassing level. He rarely saw his old friends, who were mainly into getting drunk at the bars every Friday and Saturday night, refusing to acknowledge that forty loomed dangerously close. Hell, the saddest part of all was he didnt even miss his old life.

Not even the women.
