Searching for Disaster is available for purchase:


I had a really nice time. She refused to look at him, fiddling with her seat belt. Yes, me, too. Thanks for dinner. I better go. She flew out of the car. Cursing under his breath, he climbed out and followed her. When he reached the top step, her odd fear had leaked away and been replaced by the fierce determination he adored. Look, it was a great night but we made a deal. I dont need you escorting me to the door, or making moony eyes and pretending this is going to be something its not. Navy-blue eyes burned with temper. His dick wept and it was all he could do not to back her against the door and kiss her savagely. I dont make moony eyes at anyone. I take offense to that remark. Good night, Liam. He moved into her space. Are you attracted to me? The air escaped her lungs in a soft whoosh. His gaze flicked down her body, noting her tightening nipples against the fine lace of her bodice. She was practically shaking, and they hadnt even touched yet. Thats a ridiculous question. No its not. Are you attracted to me? She shifted her weight, struggling for the answer. If youre not, Ill leave. Im not out to force myself on anyone. But dont lie. I dont lie! she said hotly. Are you? Yes! But I dont intend to do a thing about it. This experiment is over, Liam. You need to finish what you started at Kinnections and we need to avoid each other. You deserve a woman who can be a perfect wife. You deserve kids and a white picket fence and dogs. You deserve it all. He leaned in. So do you, he growled. Maybe its time I prove it. Shock and arousal dilated her pupils. Her lips parted for air. Im not out for a quick screw, she shot out. Just because we did it once doesnt mean Im an easy target. Sweetheart, you couldnt be easy if you tried. I knew even that night you were the one who chose, not the other way around. Her arms lifted as if to touch him, then dropped back down as if shed gotten burned. The intoxicating scent of her invaded his nostrils: sweet and spicy, tinged with feminine arousal. Hed allowed her to lead because she needed to feel in charge, but he also knew when actions spoke louder than words. In his job, and his life, Devine followed an instinct that had never guided him wrongan innate sense of when to push and when to back off. Right now, he needed to push. He moved. It only took three steps to back her against the screen door. His arms caged her in. He braced his thighs apart, trapping her. He kept just enough space between their bodies so she had the time needed to transition without trying to bolt. Im honored you feel the need to push me straight into another womans perfect arms, but Im here to tell you there is no perfect woman. And Im sure as hell not perfect either. So, heres the deal, Isabella. Im going to kiss you. What? she squeaked out. She pushed against his chest briefly, then rested her palms over his beating heart. The move alone told him she wanted this as badly as he did. We cant.

We can. I havent forgotten that night. Ever. It was the best damn sex I ever had. Even then, I wanted more, but it wasnt our time. Liam. His name spilled from her lips in a sultry whisper, dissipating high above the stars. Dont think. Dont worry. He lowered his head with deliberate slowness, wanting to savor every second. Just kiss me. His lips covered hers. The years melted away. Her soft mouth trembled, then opened beneath his. He swallowed her groan and slipped inside, drinking in the sweet sting of her flavor, reminding him again of bourbon laced with maple syrup. They learned each other all over again until the kiss caught fire, and she sunk her teeth into his bottom lip. A primitive growl rose from his throat and he rose to the demand. Twisting his fingers in her glorious hair, he pinned her open under the length of his thigh and ravaged her. His teeth nipped; he soothed with his tongue, claimed her as his. She gave it back, sinking into a wild thing who exploded in his arms, challenging him at every turn. They feasted on each other, with a touch of the savage, her fingernails digging into the muscles of his arms, her breasts pressed tightly against his chest, her body arched with a demand he intended to serve. He got lost, got found, and fell hard within that one perfect, soul-stirring kiss.

They were not kidding when they said that this was a highly anticipated novella to the Searching For series! I've been waiting for the final installment to this saga for quite some time. I wasn't sure how a novella would stack up to the full length novels but Searching for Disaster was pretty awesome! It definitely didn't lack in chemistry but it did lack one thing--length!! I feel like Isabella and Liam could have filled so many more pages! I really liked Isabella's character and how she had a sad-ish and not-so-squeaky clean past. Having read the rest of the series, I already had some tidbits on her story but, obviously, wanted those details to be flushed out. She's a stark contrast to Liam/Divine's clean cut character. I think the fact that their lives had previously crossed paths years ago made for that much more tension and chemistry between the two. It was a sweet story, a story of change and acceptance of oneself. I definitely didn't want to see this story come to a close so I do wish that this was a lot longer than it was but Searching For Disaster was definitely a strong close to a fantastic series.
