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.

The Skinny: Best book in the series!

I discovered Cora’s books as a result of New Leaf Literary’s fantastic PR campaign. The various Tumblr posts and tweets inspired me to order LOSING IT, and I was hooked. This series is just so, so good. I laugh at loud, feel tears pool in my eyes, and blush in embarrassment with each book. Cora’s writing style brings a crispness to New Adult and embodies the foundation on which this genre is built.
           
In FINDING IT, Kelsey bounces around Europe in an attempt to flee from past traumas. She meets Hunt, a man who understands the darkest parts of her personality while simultaneously encourages her to embrace the brightest aspects of her life. The way Hunt and Kelsey evolve feels natural and sweet. I love their chemistry – a slow burn that Cora fuels with each page.

Cora Carmack has the ability to put a spotlight on relatable situations and describes them with precision and honesty. I admire her talent and respect the risks she takes with her characters. She rips them apart, forces them to face their demons, and slowly rebuilds them with threads of hope and buttons of strength.

I really enjoyed FINDING IT, and I highly encourage readers to start this series immediately. It is the type of book that will expand reading palates and expose readers to a talented writer.
