Finding It (Losing It, #3) by Cora Carmack
Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She's having the time of her life...or that's what she keeps telling herself.
It's a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you're afraid you won't like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey's loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey's mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.
5 stars - Filled with hot sexual tension from one "soldier smolder", this one will keep you up late!
Cora Carmack just keeps getting better and better. I remember reading Losing It and thinking I had found an awesome new author but everything I read from her just keeps getting better.
And that better? It's in the form of one Jackson Hunt. He's the best Cora Carmack boy so far and I really LOVED Garrick!
Jackson is a mystery. I love him and enjoyed so much getting to know him - even though he didn't say a lot. He's an action kinda guy. Former military and traveling through Europe. That's about all Kelsey and we get about the boy - well that and the fact that he could stop traffic with those abs. But he's sweet and caring too. He has a great sense of humor and loves adventures. He doesn't need alcohol to enjoy himself and his eyes can't stay off of Kelsey. But he won't make the move? What's up with that? I will admit to figuring it out before Kelsey did but oh how I loved the trip. AND it did take me a while to figure him out - I knew a little before Kelsey.
He's an artist too. Who cannot love a guy who draws? That sketch book of his is always around but we don't find out what's in it till later and then I so loved his favorite subject. I also loved how it came into play at the end of the book - no I'm not telling you how. I will not ruin this book!
Kelsey is very much the girl we met in Losing It. She's a party girl but now we see why. She's hiding from a past and a future trying to make a now that will get her through. But her standard party scene isn't helping things much, or at all. Once she meets Jackson, it's clear she needs to re-think the reason behind this trip. I really enjoyed that this story was a growing up kinda story. She's trying to figure out who she can be in a world she's not happy with. This is a great new adult theme and a big reason why I love this genre.
The story moved very quickly. I started it and finished it in one evening. I couldn't put it down. I didn't want to, didn't have to, so I read. The ending is perfect but I'm super excited to hear that Hunt will have a novella.
If you have read the first two books in this series, then you can't miss this one. Thinking it's the best of the series and I cannot wait for Hunt's Novella! If you haven't started this series, then you need to change that! This series is what I love about new adult and you should really check it out.
