I am going to start this review by saying this – it wasn’t the best idea to pick up a book that was about falling in love with your best friend. Not to be a Debbie downer, but that shit never ends positively and personally – experiencing the fall out of it – I was not in a good place.
But Jennifer Probst – I will say this. You got me believing that it’s not as bad as it seems.
Here’s the premise of the book –
Genevieve MacKenzie has her life completely under control. About to wed the charming Chief doctor at the local hospital, she’s an up-and-coming surgeon with everything she could ever want. Until an escape through the church window on the day of her wedding sends her life into a tailspin…and flings her right into her best friend’s arms.
When Wolfe catches his best friend falling out a window on her wedding day, he doesn’t ask questions. He whisks her away, determined to watch over her and discover the truth behind her desperate escape. But when his feelings turn more than platonic, he realizes he may risk his most important relationship in order to protect his damaged heart, and the woman he loves.
Can Genevieve and Wolfe’s friendship turn into something deeper—or is it already too late for true love?
Look, I will be the first to admit that love is complicated and Probst doesn’t shy away from that. Instead she embraces it on a level that we relate to. Here’s our review for Searching For Beautiful.
Overall Rating: 4/5
Overall Thoughts: Love is a complicated piece of shiz emotion at times and it takes everything in you to not fall at its feet – in tears – praying that the pain will end. But when you least expect it – it finds you. It probably isn’t going to be on everyone else’s terms and you will probably regret feeling it at times – but there is love out there for everyone. If there is one thing that I learned from this book it’s that you have to admit that it’s there. You have to allow yourself to feel it. Because if you don’t – you just might miss it.
Probst’s novel is a fun, quick read that will have you feeling emotions and at the same point wishing that you didn’t. It’ll make you question your own at times and face just what you are experiencing.
Overall – it’s a good book. Great beach read.
Our Blurb: Jennifer Probst writes love in all it’s forms in ways that one can understand, relate to, and want to feel. She crafts relationships in a way that makes you feel like you are experiencing every emotion that the character is. She’s got a gift… and in this book, it is simply beautiful.
