Zev Braden and Carly Dylan were co-explorers, best friends, and first loves. Their close-knit families were sure they were destined to marry—until a devastating tragedy struck, breaking the two lovers apart. Over the next decade Zev, a nomadic treasure hunter, rarely returned to his hometown, and Carly became a chocolatier and built a whole new life across the country. When a chance encounter brings them back into each other’s lives, can they find the true love that once existed, or will shattered dreams and broken hearts prevail? Find out in Searching for Love, a deliciously sexy, funny, and emotional second-chance romance.

Thank you to Melissa for my copy of this book. I am a HUGE fan of Melissa and I have been loving this latest Braden/Montgomery series so I just had to read this book!

Zev and Carly were inseparable when they were younger, right up until a tragedy made Zev run away breaking her heart in the process. Zev was trying to protect Carly when he ran away but he hurt her all the same. Fast forward 10 years and these two bump into each other again. Whoa, you could feel the sizzle jumping right off the page in that scene!

Zev, Zevy, Zev. Oh man, I would pack up my stuff right now and go on any adventure you asked! That man is kind, considerate and damn sexy! I fell in love with Zev about 2 pages in! And Carly is the girl I definitely need to be friends with. I mean she runs a chocolate shop!! But seriously she is so sweet and she takes care of all her friends. I would love to be part of her gang with Birdie and Quinn!

I loved catching up with old characters and meeting quite a few new ones (oh Hello, Cutter). I can’t wait for more books in this series and what I’m pretty sure will be another Dark Knight Series!
