On the Flap
Kennedy vows to work her magic and transform this hot mess in a lab coat with a disastrous relationship track record into the most wanted man on the Verily dating scene. If only she could turn the wand on herself . . .
Though she radiates confidence and sex appeal, Kennedy harbors deep-seated insecurities from a tormented past and lifelong struggle with weight issues. When she realizes she and Nate are cut from the same cloth and might be perfect together, can Kennedy learn to let her heart lead the way? Or will her fears sentence her to the sidelines as Nate finds love—with someone else?
Nate is an aerospace engineer and overall has been a bit of a boy genius. Now as a man in his early thirties, he has money, career, and stability but still lacks love. His approach to finding a wife has been much like his methodology to his work. He comes across very analytical and geeky.
As Kennedy and Nate work together to change his looks and behavior much like Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, they form a genuine bond and have loads in common. While there is a bit of internal strife to their connection, there are no huge plot twists. This is a straight forward romance filled with plenty of chemistry.
I can never get enough of Probst’s writing. With her I always know I’ll read a solid story, with sassy female leads, dominating men, and a just a hint of fantasy. This story is no exception.
