Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find where you truly belong...
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.
As I am a huge fan of Cora Carmack, this one is her best one yet! Finding It delivers this amazing story of Kelsey and Hunt. I loved how Kelsey was able to have this adventure in Europe as well as fall in love. Cora Carmack knows how to grab your attention with her male leads who know how make your heart feel fluttery.This is a companion to Losing It, and Faking It which is great since I loved those two books! New Adult has been another favorite genre of mine and Finding it did not disappoint me since I loved it!!
Kelsey is very different from Bliss, (her best friend from Losing It) and are polar opposites since she is more outgoing, but Bliss has loosened up since we last saw her. Kelsey has been traveling in Europe, because she needs the space from her life. She explores many cities and countries that anyone would love to do. Until she meets Jackson Hunt. He is HOT, mysterious and can make you think about what to do next. As they set off on this adventure there are many secrets between them that can either pull them apart or bring them closer. I loved each of the scenes that these two were together in because they have this intense chemistry.
I really liked Kelsey because she is so different than any other main characters Cora has introduced us to. She is a wild child, knows how to have fun at a party. Kelsey really hides behind closed doors. You can really sympathize with what has happened to her. She was normal and ya she has baggage, who is not perfect. Kelsey is strong and has this charm to her that will make you like her more.
Jackson (aka Hunt) is one amazing guy. He is ex-military, he takes care of Kelsey even though she does not know her. He also joins in Kelsey's European trip which was adorable since they have this connection. Jackson has to be in the top 10 of NA males leads in my book! I do wish that he did have more a POV since some of those scenes need him!! Finding it addresses many issues than the other two. At times it was light, then get to a really heavy scenes. I loved reading about their excursions in Prague and Rome which was really cool since it made me actually want to imagine being there. Cora knows how to open your eyes to what more there is in the world.
After reading it, I was happy and full of joy with the ending. Their journey was beautiful and incredible. If you are a fan of Cora Carmack or any New Adult novel I recommend you pick up her books right away since you will definitely swoon over these characters. Now I cannot wait for Jackson's novella! Thank YOU Cora Carmack for these amazing reads, glad to be part of this journey with you with your amazing books!
