The next highly anticipated novella in the Searching For series, a romantic spin-off of the Marriage to a Billionaire series from New York Times bestselling sensation Jennifer Probst.
When Isabella MacKenzie tries to move on from her disastrous past, Officer William Devine is determined to show her that love is the only way to heal. This sexy enovella, the final installment in Jennifer Probst’s heartwarming Searching For series, follows the high-powered women of the popular matchmaking agency Kinnections, located in the small, picturesque town of Verily, NY.

Finally, we get Izzy’s love story in this short novella! I admit to being very intrigued by her since I read Searching For Beautiful (OMG THAT BOOK!) and I am so, so happy that she finally got her HEA!
I am feeling a little bittersweet about this book because it marks the end of the ladies of Verily. So it is with a heavy heart that I review this book and say goodbye to Verily.
Second Chance Romance
I did not expect Devine and Izzy to have met years ago! I especially love that short flashback when these two met for the first time and had a one night stand! It was heartbreaking to read. This is also where we see the start of Izzy’s addiction.
Izzy and Devine’s HEA begins when Devine gets coerced by Arilyn and Stone to join Kinnections. And who does he see when he but Izzy?!
I love that we see Izzy’s fight to be sober and be drug-free. She is at the point in her life where she is trying to love herself and move on.
I have been intrigued about what made Izzy be so different from Genevieve (Searching for Beautiful) and I feel that her story was done really well.
The best part of this book are the puppies! How could you not love them? I love how Devine and Izzy’s relationship blossomed around taking care of these puppies.
What I didn’t like
Probably the only thing I didn’t like about Searching for Disaster is the length! I totally understand that it is a novella BUT I WANT MOAR!
Another thing that really bothered me is the insta-love aspect of their romance. I understand that they had a one night stand years ago, but I think because this is a novella, their romance felt too fast.
I definitely recommend reading the other books in the series first to get the context and know more about Kinnections. Plus, the series is just AMAZING!
