I received an ARC of this book from InkSlinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I love Jennifer Probst’s books. She has this way of writing contemporary romance that’s all sweet and read but has a touch of unexplainable magic to it. Yes, I am talking about the love spell. Searching For Always is now the fourth book in this series, so by now, we all know how the love spell must work not only for these four friends but also for the four women who came before them.

Of all four – Kate, Kennedy, Genevieve, and Arilyn, I found Arilyn to be the one who was the hardest to like. In the previous books, she was all hush hush about her boyfriend who was her yoga teacher. In this book, she has already broken up with that guy, after he caught her cheating the third time. The hero, Stone Petty was forced to enroll in her anger management class after an incident at one of the calls he responded to.

At first, I really found Arilyn to be a stuck up bitch who thought she was better than Stone or everybody else. However, once I started getting to knw her better, I kind of liked her a lot. As always, Ms. Probst’s hero are the alpha type who aren’t afraid of showing or talking about their minds and emotions. While Stone may be a bit more closed, he was still nice to Arilyn’s friends and their men.

I really like the way they came from enemies to lovers. I like that Arilyn was the first one to come out and be honest about her feelings. It was consistent with her character. I also like the appearance of the three friends. Every book in this series would not be complete if the four women did not get together in at least one scene.

Jennifer Probst is truly a wonderful author who knows how to tickle her readers with a heartwarming love story filled with strong friendships and a whole lot of love from unexpected places. That thing about the dog was really cute too. I would definitely recommend this book. It’s a really enjoyable story.
