Searching for Mine by Jennifer Probst - Review/Excerpt Tour & Giveaway

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? 

“Im not looking for a pretty face to date. Im looking for someone whos not afraid to get messy and see the pearl buried under the dirty, closed-mouthed oyster. Have you ever done something for a woman without waiting for a pat on the back? Or given a compliment on anything other than her appearance?”
“I respect a womans brain. Its not my fault your entire gender is so obsessed with their appearance, body, and age. Women crave approval and reassurances that they’re beautiful. Don’t get mad at me just because I give you what you really want.”
She shook her head in disgust. “Bull. You dont bother to dig deeper because you choose not to. You dont know how to relate to creative women who arent afraid to get ugly and tell the truth. Its easier to see the surface image, isnt it? Like your date,” she added with a slightly bitter tone.
Temper hit him. How dare she question his intentions? She knew nothing about him. With a low growl, he leaned forward and challenged her back. “Oh, yeah? You think you havent judged me by my appearance? By my job or my apartment? I work construction, Ella. I have blistered, raw hands, crazy shifts, and dont own a suit. Im thirty-eight years old without a college degree. I dont live in a fancy house and Im not a fancy guy. Whos not being real by saying you never judged me by my appearance?”
The breath gushed out of her lungs and she took a step back. Silence descended as the angry words hung in the air between them. He shook his head in disgust. There was no reason to get upset by the truth. Women saw him as an attractive guy to have sex with but not marry. They ogled his body, not his brains. Most women he dated had no interest in a real conversation unless it was a segue to bed. Nate was the marrying kind. Stable, financially secure, wicked smart.
Not Connor.
“Forget it. This whole thing is ridiculous. I gotta go. Ill check in with you later about Luke. Happy Valentines Day.”
He stomped off without another word and refused to look back. But her words lingered in his mind for a long, long time.
