Review- Finding It by Cora Carmack

Summary-

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-

Finding It is the third and final book in Cora Carmack's new adult series. I had liked Losing It but Faking It had disappointed me so I went in without any expectations into Finding It. I am so glad that I read this book because Finding It turned out to be a really good read. THIS is new adult people. It was about discovering yourself and facing the changes life has in store for you.

Kelsey is on a world wide trip. She is trying to find happiness one last time before she has to return to parents who don't give a damn about her. Kelsey was really hard to like in the beginning. I could not relate to her behavior or her getting drunk every five minutes. But I did understand her by the end of the book. She had a vulnerability to her and she just wanted to belong.

Then there's Jackson Hunt. He always seems to end up when she needs someone to rescue her. There's also the thing of him being too hot for his own good. Jackson somehow always seems to see through Kelsey's pretense. I really liked Jackson. He was sensible and hot. He was what made the whole romance swoon worthy.

The romance between Kelsey and Jackson was amazing. There is chemistry between them and I loved their banter. Both of them could be themselves with each other. The whole book goes from Kelsey's pov so I did wish we'd got Hunt's pov too. But that would have spilled the secret. I can guarantee that anyone who's read enough of romances can figure out the big secret really fast. I did within a few pages.

But that didn't decrease my enjoyment of the book. Finding It was a fun read which takes Kelsey and Jackson to exotic locations. I liked that it was a true new adult book unlike the past few new adult books which just seem to be more like erotica. Finding It was a good read.

  1. It's so good when you go into a book not expecting much but ti turns out for the best. I (like you can assume) still haven't started this book, but it seems really appealing to me. Finally NA book which is not only about sex and swearing. Great review, Janhvi :)

  2. I'm glad that you decided to give this book a try Janhvi and ended up enjoying it, it's always nice when you go into a book with not many expectations, but end up reading a brilliant read. I'm always on the lookout of something different in the new adult genre. So thank you for your lovely review!

  3. I did enjoy Losing It but I haven't picked up the rest of the series. I'll lower my expectations for the second book, but I can't wait to read this one. I do love it when NA is a great story and not just about sex, sex, sex. Wonderful review, Janhvi! :)

  4. I gave up on this series log ago after being disappointed by the second book, buts it's so great to know that this one wasn't a fail like I expected. Kelsey doesn't seem like I personi like to read about but having Jackson in the picture makes it much more bearable. I can't promise you that I'll read this book, bit if ever in an NA mood, I'll definitely think about this one. Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I haven't read Faking It but I was disappointed by Finding It. It bored me, and I think the alcohol was overkill. I still need to write my review on Goodreads!
