[Review] Finding It – Cora Carmack

Released: October 15th, 2013 

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.
"I think home is wherever you are happiest."
Cora Carmack is back again! Unforunately, I wasn't too big of a fan of Faking It but I was in love with Bliss and Garrick's story. So, I'm happy to announce that this book did not disappoint me. Absolutely beautifully written with a wonderful storyline about finding yourself and finding the right one. Kelsey and Jackson's story blew me away and sent me on a roller coaster of emotions as they try to move on from their past and discover who they are.

One word I'd use to describe Kelsey Summers would be reckless. From what I saw in her "adventures" travelling Europe, all she did was party and party and party. And basically got drunk. She wanted to have the time of her life.

I wasn't too big of a fan of that because I don't really like characters who don't think before they act. But Kelsey's was thoughtful in a way. She didn't know what she wanted and she was exploring all these different things to find that out. She wasn't the type of girl who just sat in her room with a bucket of ice cream, pining over Prince Charming.

Jackson, on the other hand, has been through too much shit. But he is mm-mm, delicious.
Soldier Smolder. He was even more gorgeous up close, which was only magnified by his deep voice.
God, I love a man with a deep voice.

I just really liked Jackson's character. 

And I loved a few quotes by Kelsey:
We live our lives as if we're at the center of our own universe, but we're just tiny pieces of a shattered whole.
"Women love a mystery. But only if we think we can figure it out."
"The past is frozen. Written in stone. But the future isn't."
Oh and great idea for the plot twist in the end even though I totally guessed it.
