Book Review - Searching for Disaster by Jennifer Probst

Book review
Amazon USA Amazon UK
Review by Suze
Isabella MacKenzie made some bad choices in the past and there are many things she regrets. She even let her possible soul mate walk away. After several years of struggling she finally managed to get herself back on track and now she has a job she loves and a nice home in a cozy town named Verily. She also has her family by her side again, something she couldn't be more grateful for. Everyone has forgiven her, but is Isabella ready to forgive herself?
Officer William Devine plays by the rules. He's a cop in Verily, a nice quiet town. He's working together with his best friend and has a great house. There's something missing in his life though. He's ready to commit, but there has only ever been one woman for him and he just had a single night with her. His determination to do the right thing ruined his chances with the carefree girl he immediately loved.
Izzy and Liam couldn't be more surprised when they see each other again. When they met Izzy was a free spirit and she traveled the world. Liam was about to start the police academy and didn't have any idea where he would end up yet. Has fate brought them together again? Izzy is ashamed of the things she's done and she doesn't know if she's worthy of someone as good as Liam. Will he be able to take away her doubts and convince the woman of his dreams that he's the one for her?
Izzy used to lead a turbulent life. She didn't always do what was right for her, but is trying hard to change this. She's vulnerable and insecure at some points, but she's also incredibly strong. I admired her vibrant spirit. She's clever and she has an intriguing personality because it has so many different facets. Liam has a warm heart and he has a kind and loving character that makes most women melt. He's only interested in Izzy though. I loved his strength, his determination and his persistence. It's clear from the moment they meet that Izzy and Liam have amazing chemistry, the sparks fly off the pages. They're a special couple and I adored that even their dogs like each other. Izzy and Liam obviously belong together, which was endearing to witness.
Jennifer Probst has a vivid writing that flows easily. She effortlessly combines hot scenes with deep emotional layers. Her main characters aren't perfect and I love that about them. She writes about feelings in an honest and pure way with an abundance of wonderful empathy. Her stories are all about two souls who should be entwined, but are having trouble getting there. The process is as important as the result. Jennifer Probst uses a lot of opposites and combines them with plenty of creativity. Everything comes together in a sexy and touching way. I really enjoyed reading Searching for Disaster, it's a beautiful heartfelt story.
