Searching for Mine by Jennifer Probst

Title: Searching for Mine 
Series: Searching For #4.5
Author:  Jennifer Probst

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?

Jennifer Probst is a must read for me. I jump at the chance to read anything by her. Furthermore, the Searching series is one of my favorites. My favorite character is Nate. And this novella is about Nate's brother Connor.

Connor Dunkle is back in college at age 38.  When he was younger, he had to take several jobs and he was the one who put Nate through school when his mother left them and his father went into a drunken stupor. Currently, Connor is almost done with his last semester. He needs to pass just one class to be able to graduate. If he doesn't graduate, he won't get the promotion he so desperately wants. 

Ella Blake is the professor of Composition 102. She wants her students to think and to stop living in cliches. One look at Connor and she thinks she knows what he's all about. Conceited, handsome and having women falling over him all the time. Just as she had made up her mind about him, she discovers he is much more than that. 

I like how these two characters didn't like each other at the beginning and how they developed a friendship first.  Yes, they disagree in some of their views about women but the best relationships have to have some challenges, right? I love how Connor had a great relationship with Ella's son and I agree with Nate. I think he's going to be a great dad someday.

Searching for mine was enjoyable, fast-paced and left me with a big smile on my face. 

To sweeten the deal,  Nate and Kennedy had a couple of cameos in it.

Cliffhanger: No

4.5/5 Fangs
