Book Review: Searching For Mine by Jennifer Probst

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

Viviana's Review:

A novella in the "Searching For" series, written for the 1001 Dark Nights collection, "Searching for Mine" is an excellent example of how this collaboration works! This is a series I have had on my TBR for a while. I have the paperback! As the saying goes "Too many books, not enough time". Atlas, as more time passed and more books get added to the series, a get gets a bit scared and overwhelmed. "Will I like it?" "Can I commit to that many?" One of the things I'm really enjoying about the 110 Dark Nights collection is it allows readers to sample the author and series. So glad I grabbed "Searching for Mine".

I truly love Jennifer's writing style and how she develops her characters. The stories flow and the reader is entertained and gets lost in the world she created.

The 'student/teacher' taboo was BRILLIANTLY done here that no eye was batted. PERFECT! Loved that she was not only 'immune" to his "charmed" but that she called him out on his "old fashion" (lets call it that to be nice, shall we) thinking was fantastic. Ella, the heroine is funny, witty sarcastic and calls it like she sees it. LOVE her!

Conner is pleasant on the eye, a charmer and apparently "thinks" he knows how to get what he wants. I loved his nurturing and caring side. He is the brother of Nate who was the hero in a previous book. Those that read "Searching for Perfect" will know Conner a tad, but more as a "playboy" apparently. We "hear" more about this here.

Really enjoyed seeing Ella's and Conner's relationship develop from teacher/student to friends to lovers. The chemistry is there but it adds to that under lying layer that relations need that is ore than just physical.

I tend to be a bit hesitant about reading novellas as I feel they are either rushed or you don't get a complete story. This isn't the case with "Searching for Mine". You get a complete story that makes you want to read the rest of the series. A talent that Jennifer has. :)
