Kennedy Ashe works for Kinnections, a matchmaking agency.
She was once overweight, but she made herself over into a
fashionista, a living goddess in the eyes of the world.
Nate Ellison Raymond Dunkle, an aerospace engineer, is
brilliant but a real nerd: unkempt, disheveled, he cares
nothing for his appearance and lacks everything in terms of
social graces. He is serious about finding a wife, he
doesn't care for one-night stands and temporary
arrangements. He has a good heart, he means well, he has
tried to get all the data on what women really want, mostly
from magazines, and unfortunately from his brother Connor,
but it doesn't help him at all. He decides to give
Kinnections a try and Kennedy is his matchmaker.
After a disastrous first bout with speed-dating, Kennedy
sees him as a real challenge. She will help him because she
knows how rejection feels, and she decides to teach him
everything, so he can meet the one. Nate is in awe of
Kennedy's beauty and brains, but he knows she is out of his
league; she is too perfect for him.
The more time Nate and Kennedy spend together, the more they
are attracted to each other, but she needs to be in control
of her destiny, always, and dares not do what her heart
tells her: she pushes him away again and again. Behind the
glossy surface, Kennedy hurts a lot, but she has learned to
hide it well. She would like to be able to commit to
someone, but she's terrified of a man knowing who she
really is: a brainiac who works hard at being perfect.
SEARCHING FOR PERFECT by Jennifer Probst had me hooked from
page one, I was reading with a smile on my face. The book is
close to 400 pages, yet you don't want to stop reading. The
characters jump off the page, and the descriptions of Nate
are truly hilarious. It's a light, charming and sexy story
with a lot of substance; we share Nate's and Ken's joy and
pain. It's funny and heart-wrenching. It's a reverse
Pygmalion and yet totally original; it's also a profound
reflection on what our society values and the damage it can
do. And it gives a new meaning to "applied science". In a
few words, SEARCHING FOR PERFECT is simply ... perfect!
