{Kati #Review} New Adult Contemporary: Finding It by Cora Carmack

FINDING IT by Cora Carmack
Series: Losing It #3
Genre: New Adult
Length: 323 pages
Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (October 15, 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.

REVIEW:

Confession: I still haven't read the first two books in this series but the moment Finding It was available for review, I knew I had to request it.

About halfway through the book I realized that this was going to go along the lines of Roman Holiday and Chasing Liberty. Usually when I figure out where a book is headed, I either put it down or am less invested in it. Cora Carmack made me want to keep reading. Her writing is the perfect blend of angst, sexiness, heartbreak and a whole lot of laughs.

And it goes something like this...

Kelsey Summers is having the time of her life traipsing through Europe without a care in the world. Well, almost. She's running from something and dancing the night away, throwing back large amounts of alcohol, attending raves sounds like a way to numb the thoughts. Until one, very imposing man by the name of Jackson Hunt suddenly appears in her life.

Jackson Hunt is sexy, mysterious and is keeping something from Kelsey. A few chance meetings has Kelsey interested. She wants to get in his pants. Badly. Jackson is keeping her at arms length. He proposes that they travel for a week and maybe he'll kiss her. She agrees. Let the romp through Europe commence. Within that time, Jackson and Kelsey get to know each other. The chemistry between them burns hot and soon there's more at stake than just a kiss and mysterious phone calls don't help bridge that emotional gap between them.

Take one part Chasing Liberty, throw in a European adventure worthy of a Mary Kate and Ashley movie, give it the Cora Carmack treatment and you've got a fantastic read that will have your heart racing, your diaphragm getting an abtastic workout, and finally rooting for these two people to shut up and make it work. Carmack's writing is the perfect blend of angst, sexiness, heartbreak and a whole lot of laughs wrapped in pop culture references.

Favorite Quote:
My amused stalker had olive-toned skin, dark eyes, and hair cut close to his head. He had that muscled, military look about him, which sparked half of a dozen dirty puns in my head about him invading my territories. Plus, he was tall with a permanent smolder that would have made Tyra Banks stop the crazy train and stare.
