    I FREAKING LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!! "Adventures don't happen when you're worried about the future or tied down by the past. They only exist in the now. And they always, always come at the most unexpected time, in the least likely of packages. An adventure is an open window; an an adventurer is the person willing to crawl out on the ledge and leap" Kelsey Summers wants adventure and decides to travel around Europe leaving everything right behind her, no parents and no responsibilities. Kelsey having all the fun she think she wants until she meet the sexy mysterious dangerous Jackson Hunt. Who is Jackson Hunt? He is"Strong, stubbled jaw, delicious muscles, epitome of tall, dark and dangerous, big, warm, masculine, buzz cut, ex-United States Marines Crops" Kelsey keeps running into Jackson at the places she goes and their attraction is wow! Yet, he is mysterious. And situation brings them together, a dare and Kelsey is set to travel with Jackson for a week and he promises her adventure that adventure. They travel to Prague, Italy, Germany and everywhere they can around Europe. The more they spend time, they closer they become and feelings go haywire. That first kiss, my my my *fans* Just say that man is expert! Everything inside me explored..... N THAT WAS JUST A KISS! " I told you that you could call me by my first name.

    Finding It is officially out in the world! You can buy e-books online or print in stores, including a limited signed special edition at Target that includes a deleted scene. This story is so close to my heart, in part because it was incredibly difficult to write. Kelsey is a different heroine than Max and Bliss. She's a bit abrasive and harder to love. But hers is a story that I felt compelled to tell. As a writer, the way I approach books and characters is by figuring out what the characters want, and then I let that desire dictate the plot. For Kelsey, I threw that out the window and wrote a story about a girl who had no earthly clue what she wanted (as is fairly common for people in their twenties). Because she has no desire, she doesn't have a trajectory like the rest of my characters. And without anywhere to run to, she's forced to slow down and examine her life, her identity, and her future. Fair warning: Kelsey is likely to frustrate you. She makes mistakes. A lot of them. But hopefully in the end that will make the journey that much sweeter. Thank you for reading! And for reviewing. And for just being generally amazing. I love you all! P.S. If you enjoy Finding It, you'll want to catch Seeking Her, a novella from Jackson's POV coming in January!

    If I believed the stories I learned growing up, God made the world in six days and on the seventh day he rested. I wonder if, like me, the eighth day was when he watched it all begin to unravel. New Adult is a tough genre. Almost every book that falls into it feels like a bit of a redheaded stepchild; too mature to be classified as Young Adult, but not written well enough to be considered Contemporary Romance. Easy is a notable exception, as are The Sea of Tranquility, Unteachable, Sophie Jordan's upcoming Foreplay, and Samantha Young's On Dublin Street series. But the reigning queen of NA--the author who most consistently, time and again, writes sweet, sexy stories about lovely, complicated young women and men--is absolutely Cora Carmack. And she's done it again with Finding It, an exciting, angsty story that follows Kelsey (friend of Bliss and Cade, protagonists of of Losing It and Faking it, respectively) on a backpacking trip through Europe.When we meet Kelsey, the classic Poor Little Rich Girl (gorgeous, useless, and with a metric shit-ton of daddy's money to play with), she's two weeks into her laze across Eastern Europe. She spends her time sleeping, drinking too much, and having sex with random dudes who don't speak English, and she isn't particularly fussed about any of it. She is just generally an unlikeable, wounded waste of a meat puppet. The night Kelsey meets Jackson, a gorgeous, ex-military enigma of a man, she's out at a club with her sexy, non-english-speaking friends. She drinks too much and pukes in the street, then disgustingly tries to make out with Jackson when he walks her home. ***TIME OUT. Cora Carmack, I'd like to take a moment to thank you for knowing that unbrushed teeth and puke breath are absolutely disgusting. Why do authors forget this? Why do they think that a quick rinse of the mouth with a swig of water is enough to get rid of bile? IT ISN'T. IT REALLY, REALLY ISN'T. Time in.***Kelsey and Jackson begin to accidentally bump into each other around Budapest. Their relationship progresses slowly until suddenly it doesn't, and they find themselves thrust together on a train crossing the continent. They travel from Hungary through Austria, bungee jumping and hiking until they hit a tiny, romantic town in Italy where they hunker down and pretend their fledgling romance isn't absolutely doomed. While the stuff between the two of them is great--it really, really is--and while I adore Jackson as a character, Kelsey is what makes this book shine for me. She's hideously spoiled, but she knows it, and she understands how she is perceived, and while she wants desperately to grow, she doesn't know how to initiate that process. Early in the novel, she encounters The Shoes on the Danube Promenade, and her bullshit worries and entitlement hit her pretty hard. As Kelsey puts it,I felt like such a failure. Every shoe before me represented a dream that would never be lived, a life that would never be loved. I'd never faced that kind of oppression or struggle. This place bled with history and tragedy, and in comparison it made the wounds of my past seem like scratches.And this is why I love Kelsey. She's so hopelessly broken in such a pathetic way, but she WANTS to be a better person. She WANTS to grow. And I think that's a powerful message to send to kids. Personal growth is hard, and it's painful, and it involves a certain amount of uncomfortable introspection, but it is absolutely essential to becoming a true adult.Finding It is a more grown-up novel than the first two books in the series. The characters share Cormack's trademark repartee, but there's a bite to it here, an edge that didn't exist in the first two books, and for the first time in the series we're confronted with main characters who are a little bit difficult to love. But I do love them. I really, really do. And I cannot wait to see what Carmack has in store for us next. I'm a fan for life.

    Cora Cormack is back with her new breathaking novel filled with witty sense of humour, sexy romance and wonderful heart- stopping adventure in Europe. I can honestly say that Finding It is the best book in Cormack’s series. She out done herself with this phenomenal novel. Step by step, page by page I slowly fell in love with this complex bittersweet story about finding yourself, finding adventure, love, and last but not least finding where your home truly is. Now, it’s time for bitchy Kelsey to get her own story. This spoiled rotten girl is looking for adventure in Europe. From one country to the other, Kelsey’s spending her father’s money to party. Club after club, new sexy European for hook up every night and lots of tequila is her idea of living and not thinking about her future. Meet Jackson Hunt. Sexy and extremely mysterious guy, that Kelsey can’t resist. She meets him while partying in Budapest and wants him to be her new flavour of the night. But Hunt won’t touch her, like she wants him to, especially when she’s wasted. Few weird and extremely funny encounters later, Kelsey agrees to travel with Hunt in hope for finding adventure of a lifetime. But what can happen when they travel to the most beautiful places in Europe and sparks starts flying in every direction? My first thought while reading Finding It was that Hunt and Kelsey make adorable couple. Together they’re hilarious, a little bit crazy and definitely hot. I couldn’t help but laugh at theirs witty comebacks and ideas of fun. They are like dangerous, explosive mix or catastrophe that soon will happen. But what else should I expect when Cora Cormack mix rich bratty princess and a fine specimen of a man, that also happens to be ex marine? Hunt is a guy that made me melt and fell head over heels in ten second flat. One cocky smirk and flash of muscules and I was drooling. Add to this fact that he didn’t put up with Kelsey’s bitchy attidute and her slutty ways and I was deep in love. Sexual tension between the two of them was incredible. Some scenes that didn’t even involve kissing were hotter than numerous sex scenes written by other new adult authors. Even thinking about some parts of it still make me tingle. I adored how amazingly Cormack’s captured beauty of Europe. From Prague to Rome, she pictured spectacular places and their unique vibe. I literally couldn’t wait to read what place would be next on Kelsey’s list. Some things like German food sterotype made me laugh out laud, but some parts like Italy description made me green with jealousy.Overall, Finding It is a wonderful story, that can melt hearts. It’s great sweet romance story created by someone who really know how to do her job. Amusing, explosive and unpredictable, Kelsey’s story is a must read! *ARC provided by publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for honest review * More reviews on Smokin' Hot Book Blog and my Facebook Page

    The best parts of life are the things we can't plan. It's a lot harder to find happiness if you're only searching in one place. Sometimes you just have to throw away the map. Admit you don't know where you're going and stop pressuring yourself to figure it out. Besides..a map is a life someone else already loved. It's more fun to make your own.Ahh!! This book was SO CUTE!! I just love Cora Carmack books. They literally have everything you love in a romantic comedy all wrapped up together with a nice pretty bow. This is the last book in the losing it trilogy and this one is MY FAVORITE! They just get better and better. You don't have to reading Losing it and Faking it to read this one. I highly recommend reading them at some point, but they pretty much all stand on their own so you don't need to read them in order. Which means, PICK THIS ONE UP THIS SUMMER! And fall in love with Jackson Huntbecause I'm still drooling over himWomen love a mystery. But only if we think we can figure it out. This story follows Kelsey who just graduated college and decides to backpack around Europe looking for an adventure. She parties her way through Europe, hooking up with guys, and hitting every bar she can. But it isn't what she really wants in her life. Then while stumbling her way out of a bar, she meets Jackson Hunt, who has his own secrets that weigh him down. After a few run-ins they decide to backpack through Europe together and make their own adventure. Adventures don't happen when you're worried about the future or tied down by the past. They only exist in the now. And they always, always come at the most unexpected time, in the least likely of packages. An adventure is an open window; and an adventurer is the person willing to crawl out on the ledge and leap. Are you sold yet? Because I was hooked immediately. Cora Carmacks writing is so addicting and the characters are always to authentic and real. Seriously could not put this book down. I flew through it in less than 24 hours, like I do with all of her books. They're so compelling, light and fun. However this one does deal with some heavy stuff. Secrets are buried under the surface, and they're both pretty damaged people with a tough past. I loved how they worked through their issues and despite everything fell in love. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."I turned the doorknob and he embraced me from behind. "I don't think I could be any more fond of you." *swoons*"I didn't think I would feel this way.""What way?""Like life is worth living again." Their relationship was the CUTEST! And this is the perfect summer book. Theirs bungee jumping, beaches, playgrounds, visits to castles, and the romantic setting of Florence, Rome, Naples, Germany, and ahh so many more. Then theirs the fun traveling parts of them in hotel rooms, and going through different trains. It's the sweetest. Oh and have I mentioned on hot Hunt is? Because AH! And he calls her princess! But although this story is really really cute, it does have an undertone of serious issues going on but it was balanced perfectly. "What if homes not a place you can ever go back to?"We turned from the road we'd been following into a path that led into a park. The long lines of trees and sweeping fields of green relaxed me.He said, "Then you find a new home, a new place that makes you happy. It's not a once-in-a-lifetime deal, Kelsey. People find home in new places, new dreams, new people, all the time. Home should feel effortless, like gravity."I didn't trust gravity. It seemed to always be pulling me in the wrong direction. "It's not that simple," I said, then I pulled away and walked a little faster, hoping he'd take that as a clue to change the subject."Of course it's not simple. The best thing usually aren't."They're both trying to find this idea of "home" and eventually they find that kind of peace and happiness in each other and it's such a joy to watch. Yes it's a little cheesy, but in the best way. I mean seriously, who doesn't love a fun cheesy romance novel every one in a while? They're some of the best! The only complaint I had with this one was, like all of her books, I wished it was longer! I fly through them so quick and before I know it I'm smiling as I turn the last page then a second later it hits me that it's over and I'm forced to go back and reread. It's a tough process. Anyways, definitely pick up Cora Carmack books, especially this one!! Loved it so much! "I didn't believe you when you told me I would find another place to call home." I kissed him tenderly, trying to pour all my gratitude and affection and all the other unnamed things I felt into my kiss. "This feels like home."

    Out of the three books in this series, this is my least favorite. I forced myself to finish this book because I'm bored with the story and Kelsey Summers annoyed me. She complains too much and I don't care about her. The things that motivated me to finish are the places she traveled and Jackson Hunt, who is a gentleman. I'm quite disappointed with the outcome. I'll just let it go.

    Der dritte Teil war im Gegensatz zum zweiten wieder echt mitreißend und ein echter Pageturner. Kelsey kommt einem zwar anfangs (grade weil man sie auch schon aus dem ersten Band kennt) etwas oberflächlich vor, aber sie entwickelt sich zu einer starken und sympathischen Protagonistin. Und Hunt ist einfach nur zum Dahinschmelzen :DAm Ende wurden alle Geheimnisse gelüftet, die bis dahin aufgebaut wurden und das teilweise auf überraschende Art und weise.Alles in allem ein sehr lesenswertes Buch dieses Genres!

    I feel betrayed by this book. I knew from other reviews that it was going to more on the serious side than Losing It and Faking It, and honestly, I was fine with that. Based on the little I'd seen from Kelsey in the previous books, I was very excited for her story. Sure, she was overly privileged, but I liked her impulsiveness and sex-positive attitude, and I was convinced the combination of all that would make for a fun and, considering this is still a Carmack book, sexy story with some depth to it. What I got was a book that made me extremely uncomfortable, especially when it came to female sexuality and how it's handled.Read the rest on The Random Transliterator.

    I thought about meditating over this, but then figured "Nah, might as well write my thoughts about it." I had a full review that I tried to post once on Goodreads, ended up losing the whole thing before I could click submit. Gah. So this is my second attempt.This novel was going so well for a time. I definitely appreciated Kelsey's narration over Bliss, and loved the attention to detail over her excursions in Europe and overseas.Yet I could use five words to describe this book: "Drama City, Typical New Adult."Is it too much to ask for a heroine, for once, not to be "healed" from her problems by a guy? To own it to herself to face the B.S. that people give her and take a stand for what it is that's the issue and work towards that, without a guy hinging on that measure? Seriously?Kelsey has palpable pains in her past, and I definitely got that she was trying to run from those measures, and was somehow using the freedom to travel to search for something she couldn't quite grasp. I didn't like the downplay of her college education among other factors, but I understood that she was a young adult who felt like she wanted more from her life and wasn't sure how to get it. She starts off the novel partying and kind of enjoying her excursions when she ends up meeting Jackson. Jackson's a respectable guy, a soldier from what we learn from him initially. Kelsey has a nightmare of a night getting too drunk but the two end up sharing more than a few nice moments, and I definitely appreciated the eye to Kelsey's travels (though personally speaking, it's no "Wanderlove").I was icky about the whole measure of Kelsey getting drugged and then the follow up that surrounded that. I couldn't suspend disbelief over how that was handled, but I told myself that I would read onward to see if it was handled later, but not very well, unfortunately. It left a bad taste in my mouth. I did believe Jackson and Kelsey's chemistry, but the whole loopy description of it made me have flashbacks towards "Losing It" and Bliss's whole Mono state. Was not a good parallel.I figured out Jackson's role way ahead of time - probably around the time he returns Kelsey's cell to her. I wasn't sure at first, but I figured if it turned out to be the case that Kelsey wouldn't take it well at all. Yet, I was frustrated that it took so long for Kelsey to start asking questions about Jackson's past.And then when the big reveal came - it was epic info-dumping time. I was thrown out of the story because of how it was dealt with in the last 20% of the novel (if that). I wasn't there for Jackson's long spiel trying to excuse his actions (neither was Kelsey, which I give to her), but I think it could've been handled better than what it was.Overall, the ending was reached, but it didn't feel real or palpable for me, so it was definitely a kick at the knees for a novel that I enjoyed parts of in decent measures. Definitely not as enjoyable as "Faking It" was for me, but I saw merits/improvements of it over "Losing It".Overall score: 2/5 stars

    Check out more of my reviews at ***Singing and Reading in the Rain***!How can I properly portray my love for Losing It and Faking It, and then compare it to Finding It? It's not hidden knowledge that I've been in a book slump, and I was sure that this would snap me right out of it because I'm a huge fan of Cora's books.That being said, unfortunately, I didn't feel the same way about Finding It that I did her other novels in this series. For one, I had a huge issue with the main character Kelsey. I really hated Kelsey, she always thought she was so "strong" and hated being weak, but in all honesty, she was one of the weakest characters I'd ever met. She relied on other people to do things for her, and she ran from everything as soon as it got tough. At one point, she literally faked an injury to get Jackson to carry her up some stairs. Then when he got tired, she thought, "I should be nice to him and give him a break," like she's being so generous by doing this. As for her habit of running away, she would never face her problems. She blew them off, and instead thought that getting wasted would be a better solution. I hated her whole demeanor, and she didn't develop at all into a better person. She consistently blew people off, ran from her problems, and manipulated.Another issue I had was with Kelsey's inner dialogue. What I found completely implausible was the fact that she would be completely drunk, and then she'd be philosophizing about how dark and messed up her life was in her stupor. It seemed that Cora was trying to make Kelsey a broken character by adding these random monologues that tried to portray her with a dark, twisted past, but I couldn't sympathize with her because of the choice of placement of these monologues. It was, without a doubt, an info-dump and, consequently, made her "dark past" forced.Jackson. Hunt? Jackson Hunt? Soldier? What was the point of calling him ten different names? But, I also had an issue with him and the romance. First of all, that plot twist was useless. Secondly, their romance was so intsa-lovey. They didn't learn a single thing about each other, but they still went on adventures together. If you asked me to list everything I knew about Jackson, all I would be able to come up with for you would be a soldier with one heck of an ass. The romance was so underdeveloped, stemming from one meeting that resulted in them lusting after each other.I would strongly suggest you passed on Finding It. It was nothing like Cora's previous two books, which I adored. With the insta-love, annoying main character, and awkward writing, I couldn't find anything that I liked.

    “New Life Realization #1:Being an adult is hard work. I know people tell you this growing up, but it doesn’t really sink in until you’re living it, waist deep in the swamps of no-free-time and not-enough-money.New Life Realization #2:It’s worth it.” Oh my god.MY HEART!What a book to start a new reading year! It was a perfect pick.To be honest, I've had low expectations from this book. I thought it will be just an average read, not a 5-star read which become one of my favorites. So, this girl named Kelsey is travelling around Europe so she can enjoy her life and piss her dad off in the process. One night she meets a stranger guy who's witnessing the most embarassing moment of her life and cannot stop laughing at her. And then she meets him another day when she's drugged and he saves her. And then they meet in a train and start travelling together. Ok, that's not the best and the most appealing description but you have an idea. My thoughts:- Hunt, aka the stranger guy I metioned before, is someone who you want for a boyfriend. I already fell in love with him when they still were in Budapest (starting point).- The two of them were travelling together and it was pretty cool to read about places there they were.- The tension between Kelsey and Hunt was unbearable! In a good kind of way. I even had butterflies in my stomach.- I loved the parts when they were in Prague. I am Czech and I was so happy to read about our capital city. - It was a slow burn romance which I love! I thought that a good slow burn romance has to be 500+ pages long but I was wrong. I had the same feeling like I have while reading Mariana Zapata's books. - THE PLOT TWIST! (view spoiler)[I was happy when it turned out that Hunt just looked after her because her dad hired him. And he fell in love in the process. It reminded me the movie Chasing Liberty - my guilty pleasure kind of movie. (hide spoiler)]I am glad I didn't give up continuing with this series. I am sure I will re-read this soon.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Hiçbir şeyi umursamadan kendini yollara vurma olayını biraz fazla abartmış yazar. Sen git körkütük sarhoş ol, içkine uyuşturucu katsınlar. Sonra 1 gündür tanıdığın adam seni kaldığı otele götürsün. Tesadüfe bak ki hayatının aşkı çıksın bir de.Ah canım ya.

    Nose Graze — Young Adult book reviews1.5 StarsThe first thing you should know about Finding It is that it's nothing like Losing It or Faking It. I thought Losing It and Faking It were great for a few reasons: the characters felt real, the scenes were hilariously awkward, and the relationships with slow-building. Finding It has none of those things.Kelsey is not a likable character. She uses alcohol and sex to solve every single one of her problems, and I never feel like that changes—not even at the end of the book. Every move she makes is in an effort to sexually seduce Jackson and get him to have sex with her. This made it really hard for me to connect with Kelsey. I never sympathized with her or even liked her that much. She always seemed like such a shallow character. And she always talked about how she was "Done with [her] dad controlling [her] life", but she had no problem running around Europe on his money. *rolls eyes*"God, I love when people love me."KelseyMy killer stilettos kept my legs in decent shape.KelseyAnd Kelsey couldn't even go a few days without sex without complaining. I get that she was a party girl, but geeze. I don't think I was prepared to handle all her crap. I think I thought that she'd get better or she wouldn't really be that bad, but she body aching from neglect. After a few nights, I couldn't take it anymore.KelseyIn general, the whole story felt quick, fleeting, and shallow. I never truly got invested in the story or characters. Kelsey and Jackson's relationship was insta-love from the very beginning. She saw him, drooled over his abs, and wanted to get in his pants. He saw her, thought she was sexy, but tried to hold back and wanted a relationship. But immediately that attraction was there, and that's all it ever felt like—physical attraction. They rarely talked or got to know each other... they just went bungee jumping and drooled over each other."Well, Jackson Hunt. Stop being a pansy, and just take my clothes off.KelseyAnd talk about making it easy to seduce Hunt. If I couldn't do it in Italy, someone should take away my vagina because I didn't deserve it.KelseyAlso there were a few small things that bugged me.. Like the fact that Kelsey was able to get a work visa in Europe SO easily—in less than a month. What the hell??? You can't just waltz into Europe and get a work visa, believe me... I'd know.Finding It had none of the elements that I loved in Cora Carmack's other two books. In Losing It and Faking It I LOVED laughing at the hilarious, awkward scenes. Well Finding It isn't funny or awkward. That's just not part of the book at all, which surprised me since it was so prominent in the other two books. And similarly, I loved the romances in Losing It and Faking It. In both cases, they were super slow burning, passionate, and just great romances to read about. But in Finding It it felt so shallow. I never felt like I knew or cared about the characters (or their relationship) at all. It felt like pure attraction and pure sex, but not a real relationship. Kelsey and Jackson didn't even know each other.. I didn't even know them. And as a result, I just couldn't get into their relationship at all.Finding It is more a book about "I have super intense problems and I'm damaged and z0mg I need a man to fix me." But even with that in mind, I don't feel like Kelsey properly deals with her problems. At the beginning, her main problem is that she runs away from her problems, and I feel like she's still doing that at the end. It kind of gave the whole story a "What's the point?" feeling.So, ultimately, I'm really disappointed in Finding It. I thought this book would be a slam dunk since I loved the other two books.. but Finding It was nothing like the rest of the series. The book was supposed to be all about a great romance, but it didn't even have that. It was too insta-lovey and too focused on physical attraction rather than real feelings and emotional connection.

    4 starsThis book grew on me. The story starts off with Kelsey in Europe partying, getting drunk, having sex with random strangers. She meets Jackson Hunt and together they travel on a road trip, seeking new adventures.What I liked about this book is the places and adventures that they went on. I felt like I was on my own little holiday.Kelsey: I love when people love meKelsey started off very unlikeable, she was spoilt and spending her parents money. I thought she dragged the story down at the start. When she started her road trip with Hunt I felt the change in her.My main problem I had was relationship wise I had major case of déjà vu. Two people. On the road. Hero being secretive. Sexual tension. Remind anyone of another book? For me personally, it did.If I didn't know his secret, he never had to know mineOverall I liked the story and I would recommend this if you love road trip adventure, new adult with a couple of twists along the way x

    *finds book**reads plot*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 *internally screams* is no exception. She's having the time of her life...or that's what she keeps telling herself.....First off. I found Cora's first book Losing It accidently and just read it. I didn't expect anything new or fresh, just a quick light read. I didn't expect a wonderful novel with heart warming characters that were so easy to connect to. I can't wait to see more of Cora's work.ALL I CAN NOW IS WAIT...AND....

    yay!!! this really could have counted as my first read of 2016, but considering I read the majority of the book before midnight, it's my last book of 2015. :) I really liked this book, I felt I didn't connect to Jackson and Kelsey as much as I did with the previous 2 books, but all the traveling made me want to go out and do it. I wanted more to both their stories and especially the ending. it was a good ending, but I wanted to see what happened next.

    Ich mochte die Anziehung zwischen Kelsey und Jackson, aber die Story hatte für meinen Geschmack leider viel zu viel Drama intus. Und mal ganz ehrlich: Jackson Hunt, ein Soldat mit Alpträumen, die ihn nachts übergreiflich werden lassen. Greys Anatomy lässt grüßen!?

    Ebenso gut wie der Vorgänger Faking it :) Ich hab zwar immer noch das Gefühl, dass Forever in Love besser wäre, aber empfehlenswert ist es trotzdem (auch wenn das Ende bzw. das "Problem" etwas schräg ist, aber gut). 4/5

    It was such a great new adult trilogy! It wasn't perfect but I loved it anyway!

    Tatsächlich ist das der Band der Reihe, der mir von allen drein am Besten gefallen hat. Auch wenn mir die Reihe insgesamt viel zu oberflächlich und klischeehaft war, konnte mich der Abschluss erstaunlich gut unterhalten. Vielleicht liegt es daran, dass dismal nur aus der Sicht einer Person (Kelseys) geschrieben wird oder dass die Story nicht am College spielt und Cora Carmack das Umherreisen besser beschrieben kann. Auf jeden Fall fand ich diesen band insgesamt wirklich nett und das Ende sogar sehr überraschend.

    4.5 Stars. I have a confession to make: After reading half a dozen books featuring rotten players who were supposed to be heroes, wishy-washy heroines who could do much better, and nothing but sex everywhere with nary a real story in sight, I quickly became disenchanted with the "new adult" genre. I vowed not to allow myself to be drawn in again by a sexy cover and a flashy description. So when the blog tour invitation arrived for Finding It, I was hesitant. But I was drawn to the different setting of this one--who can resist a European tour with a hunky guy? So I read it. Actually, I inhaled it. And upon finishing, I was like,Holy cow, this is what new adult is supposed to be like!I was drawn into Kelsey's story right off the bat and I couldn't put it down. It's been awhile since a book has really gotten under my skin, and I'm grateful to Finding It for pulling me out of my slump. Not only is the book exceptionally well written, but there's actually a real, meaningful STORY to go along with the sexy times. Kelsey has just graduated from college and is attempting to find some purpose to her life. She comes from a wealthy family, a product of a loveless marriage, and her parents are far more concerned with appearances and their own projects than they are with their daughter. As her friends settle in to post-college jobs and relationships, Kelsey feels lost. So what better way to find herself than to spend a few months partying across Europe on her daddy's credit cards? But Kelsey soon realizes that putting thousands of miles between herself and her problems doesn't make them go away, and she's not finding that sense of purpose and meaning she's desperately seeking in clubs and bars. So when she meets sexy fellow American Jackson Hunt, who is not into drinking and casual sex, but is into showing her what she's been missing on her grand tour, Kelsey decides a change in gears is exactly what she needs.I loved reading along as Jackson took her to some of his favorite places in Europe, many of them off the beaten track and none of them including a bar or a club. I could feel the point where Kelsey started to finally get the big picture, when she realized that slowing down and just being, just enjoying the view and savoring the moment, was what it was really all about, and I was so happy for her. I was also happy that she got to experience one of the most awesome first kisses ever (real first kisses--you'll know what I mean when you read it)! And I loved that Kelsey and Jackson didn't just fall into bed together. She wants him from the beginning, and she knows he wants her and that he feels the deeper connection growing between them, but something is holding him back. At one point, I had a niggling little suspicion about the secret Jackson was hiding, but I had completely forgotten about it by the time the bomb was dropped, and I was left reeling just like Kelsey was. But she needed that experience too. Because in the end, Kelsey's European tour does finally serve its purpose--helping Kelsey find hers. It's not easy and there are some bumps in the road, but she emerges stronger, more grounded, and ready to be an adult and start the rest of her life.The only drawback to this story is that I felt like I didn't really get to know Jackson terribly well, and he has a very interesting and meaningful back story, so I would have liked to see more of it come out. But at its heart, this is Kelsey's story, and when the only complaint you have is that you want more, more, more, can you really call it a complaint? I would say that this is actually the first "new adult" novel I've read that really gets across the "new adult" experience. It's not about having as much sex as you can and getting the guy that no other girl can get. It's about discovering who you are, what's most important in life, and what you want to do with yours. And Finding It nails it. Loved it.

    Finding it is the 3rd book in Cora Carmack’s Losing It series. I adore these books!! I actually “read” the first two books in the series via audiobook during my commute. If you don’t listen to audiobooks, you should try it. I am a skimmer (I know, bad Kate!) and I tend to skim books then go back and read the important parts. When you have an audio book, you have to listen to every last word… you miss nothing. It’s a very different experience. Oh, I digress. Let’s talk about Fining It now! If you have read Losing It, you will remember Kelsey as Bliss’ best friend. Her flighty, funny, slutty, partying best friend. What we didn’t see in Losing It was that Kelsey is tired. Tired of her life, tired of being. We catch up with Kelsey as she makes her way through Europe trying to escape her demons through copious amounts of alcohol, putting herself in dangerous circumstances and having meaningless sex. She is pretending to be the girl that doesn’t care about anything, spending daddy’s money and partying her life away. After a night of drinking, dancing and making out with a sucking lizard of a man, Kelsey is found by Hunt. He is like a guardian angel. He protects her, gets her home safe and makes sure that she isn’t hurt. Hunt is ex-military and is travelling around Europe as well. Somehow he ends up everywhere Kelsey is, and is always cleaning up her mess, protecting her from herself and saving her. Eventually Hunt and Kelsey agree to travel together for one week. One week as friends. One week for Kelsey to find adventure before returning to her life in the US.Of course in that week, Kelsey and Hunt fight the growing attraction between them. Well, I guess Hunt fights it, Kelsey was ready to give in to it on night one. Hunt keeps putting her off. He wants to just be friends. He gets angry at himself whenever he crosses an imaginary line. Know what that makes for? CRAZY sexual tension. If there is one thing that Cora does amazingly well, it is draw out the sexual tension between people for.e.ver. It’s awesome. I was on the edge of my seat for so long waiting for them to just give in! And when they do?? WHEW! It takes a whole chapter! That? Was an awesome chapter. Just awesome. It wasn’t explicit, it was just lovely and detailed and…HOT. You will fall in love with Hunt, and you will love to see Kelsey becoming a stronger version of herself with him. They both have faults, they both have issues…but together they are better. Unfortunately, there had to be something wrong, right? Yeah, Hunt is hiding something. It’s a big something (which I pretty much figured out when they started travelling together) and it has the ability to rip them to shreds. Personally, I get it… I get why he hid it. I also get why Kelsey hit the roof when she found out. Read the book to find out if they come through it! (hint, Cora Carmack gives great HEAs! ) So yes, I recommend this book whole heartedly. Actually, read the whole series (or listen to them!) They are worth your attention!

    Reread; June 2015: 4.5 starsyep, still love it. ---------------------------------------------------------------Reviewed, Oct 2013:While I do wish the cover is a bit more consistent with the first two books, I just can't help staring at it because it's so pretty!post read:*drum rolls*And Cora Carmack has done it again! Seriously Cora, how do you get better and better? I need the formula, please give it to me.Everyone deserves one grand adventure, that one time in life that we always get to point back to and say "Then...then I was really living."The moment I read that first sentence, I was like, "Buckle up, because this is going to be good."I connect with Kelsey instantly. I recognize that lost feeling that she has, the confusion, wanting more from life but at the same time not knowing what you want... I'm blessed with great parents though, so I feel sorry for Kelsey for not having that. Moving on, can we talk about the mysterious and sexy Mr. Jackson Hunt?Now I don't really pay attention to character description, I usually let my mind wanders and shapes up, so all the time I was reading I had Jesse Williams in my head as Jackson. Ahem.Anyway, this book gives me a serious case of wanderlust. It has Gayle Forman's Just One Day vibe to it, and I really really reaaaaaaally wish I could travel to all the places mentioned in the book.What else? Have I mentioned that this is a fantastic read and I totally love it? It's a great story of self-discovery and love. And I guess the five-star rating I gave kinda speaks for itself.Cora Carmack, you write, and I will read.

    Nakon Slatke Nevolje, nekako je u mojoj glavi bilo da je Nezaboravna Avantura (Finding It) drugi dio i tek nakon pola pročitane knjige shvatila sam da je to treća. Ali nije mi žao. Iskreno, uopće mi se ne čita knjiga o Cadeu jer mi se tip ne sviđa. U Slatkoj nevolji doživjela sam ga ko nekog potrčka (da ne kažem pizdu, ups, rekla sam haha) i kao lik mi uopće nije sjeo. Vidi se da je Nezaboravna Avantura daleko kvalitetnije napisana ali i dalje je tu priča koja zapravo nema neki posebni zaplet niti vrhunac. A Kelsey kao lik vjerojatno neće sjesti svakome, pogotovo ne na početku same knjige.Teško je o knjizi pričati, a da ne spoilam. Zamišljati mjesta kojima su putovali bilo je lijepo, ali biti u Kelseyinoj glavi na neke momente postalo bi mi previše naporno. Pogotovo pred kraj.Tako da, eto, preporučila bih knjigu samo ako nemate neka posebna očekivanja i ako vam je dosadno jer se mogu pročitati brzo. Mislim da odustajem od Core i njenih knjiga :/
