Blog Tour and Giveaway: Finding It: Cora Carmack






Add to Goodreads     Buy: Kindle/Nook

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.

SEE MY 4 STAR REVIEW OF Faking It (click book cover)


Hot sexy soldier meets fun absorbed chick who knows no boundaries. Girl experiences instantaneous attraction the moment her eyes connect with his. Soldier while also feeling this same insane instant attraction exhibits total restraint. Hunt is the definition of disciplined while Kelsey is the epitome of opposite. She is selfish, emotional, and acts irrationally.

Initially, I was not a big fan of Kelsey, however the more I have gotten to know the secrets revolving around her past and family, I began to understand the issues surrounding her self-serving attitude. Acting out is Kelsey's means of screaming out in desperation for attention and love. I would like to tell other readers that our heroine had a quick change of heart. I'll not lie to you, this chick is self-indulgent and chaotic. Kelsey's use of alcohol and sex to solve her problems drove me nuts at times, as did her tendencies of manipulation. She is a heroine most love to hate. Nevertheless, she grew into a more mature adult with Hunt, her transition was definitely slow and steady, but by the end of the book, she grew on me, and I found myself cheering her on.

Jackson was both Kelsey's and Finding It's saving grace. His character seriously made this book.  He was so damn delectable and sweet. I loved those moments when he showed us that his disciple and control weren't so perfect after all. Hunt is a quiet but strong character next to Kelsey's loud and wild one. His guidance and determination balanced out her craziness. Hunt thought nothing of calling Kelsey on her BS, and never let her get away with anything, especially when it came to lying to herself.

Finding It is a cute addition to the Losing It Series. I adored Jackson Hunt and Kelsey Summers. The Chasing Liberty theme is fun; I'll admit it was easy to see where Hunt and Kelsey's adventure was heading (so I don't feel as though I am spoiling anything). The book started a bit slow for me, and I struggled with the pacing, but I am glad I pushed through it overall I enjoyed this one.


If you're looking for a quick fun read, that isn't filled with tons of angst and drama than I would recommend. However, I just want to mention that this book doesn't hold the same intensity and depth as Faking It.
