1001 DARK NIGHTS: Searching for Mine (A Searching For Novella)

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?

Rating: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2  (4.5 cups) of spicy hotness, served with good intentions, the warmth of friendship and a seasoning of scalding lust that hits just the right spot.  Connor and Ella are definitely your spiced coffee disguised as a mild brew whose romantic flavors just burst with the first sip.

Review:  In Searching for Mine, readers are transported back into that wonderful place called Verily, a small college town and home of the up and coming matchmaking agency Kinnections.  But that's not the only bond in Searching for Mine with the rest of the series. Fans of the books will also be very familiar with the hero, Connor Dunkle.  Yes, Connor, the brother of Nate Dunkle, hero in Searching for Perfect.  Connor has seen and the light and has decided to get his management degree and what a feat since he is about to graduate after two years of unrelenting work with an almost perfect GPA (he definitely is Nate's brother). But first he needs to pass Prof. Ella Blake's literature class.  If only batting his eyelashes and laying on the charm can get him some leeway to passing the course.  Unfortunately, the more he lays on the charm, the more he gets a lower grade, can things get any worse.

Ella is familiar with guys like Connor, getting by with his charm and almost perfect good looks and great ass (she noticed) but not in her class.  When will Connor learn that he actually needs to read the books and not rely on those cliches? But then things get complicated when she finds out he's her neighbour.  Now, her son Luke looks up to him, she finds out he really is a nice guy underneath all that good looks.  One thing leads to another and a friendship is born.  But then what happens when something more than friendship develops between two people who seems poles apart but definitely are meant for each other? 

Searching for Mine was funny and lighthearted and sexy and so, so good.  It had great dialogue, an unusual take on the professor and student trope, a heartwarming enemies to friends to lovers story and a hero that was vulnerable and insecure and whose tenderness just overflows whenever he is with the people he loves.  The heroine on the other hand, is strong, realistic, capable and determined to get what she wants and to risk friendship for the ultimate goal in relationships, love.  He is the damsel in emotional distress and she is his knight in literary armor.  Readers will definitely fall in love with Connor and Ella.
