Cora Carmack’s Losing It was one of the first new adult books I read. I fell head over heels in love with Bliss and Garrick. The characters in each of the following novels hold a special place in my heart. But, no one more than Jackson and Kelsey. I loved their story in Finding It, so I was obviously thrilled to learn there would be a novella from Jackson’s POV.

This was a short, quick read that really gave me a better idea of where Jackson came from and what was going on inside his head as he was acting as bodyguard and babysitter to Kelsey. From first sight through first contact and when he starts fighting his feelings for her, while trying to keep her from falling apart entirely, I loved reading it all through Jackson’s eyes. Fans of this series will absolutely enjoy this novella.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.

I really had a hard time enjoying this series. My first issue was that the author writes stores that are predictable. With all of the Losing It novels I found that I knew what would happen before she got to the plot. I have read almost the same plots from other authors so I kind of felt like this was a cheap knock off. Even with the books being predictable I still feel like Cora is a good writer and do a good job drawing you into a story that most people have already read. The second issue I had with this series is that Cora fails to finish the stories. When you finally enjoy the story and want to read more she ends all of the books without letting the reader know what will happen after they decide to get over themselves and be together. The third dislike about this series has to do with just Seeking Her. I really enjoyed Jackson's POV more than Kelsey's yet Cora failed to write the whole story out. I understand I read the same story in Finding It, but I wanted to read Jackson's POV for the complete story not just until she is drugged. My advise to Cora would be FINISH THIS BOOK before writing another one!!!!

    Definately read Finding It before reading this book! I did not like how this book did not tell the entire story from Jackson's POV! Definately put a damper on it for me! However the writing was great and the story that was told was good, I just wanted more and I knew there was more just not from Jackson's POV! Even just hitting some of the big moments from Finding It and replaying them in his POV would have been OK. I still enjoyed the book, just wish the story was finished

    3.5/5 stars

    I am a huge fan of Cora's Losing It series and I have to say it's rather bittersweet seeing the series come to its conclusion. However, I am certainly excited for Cora's upcoming new adult series! I absolutely adored Finding It, so when I learned there would be a novella from Jackson's POV I was ecstatic. He really was a mystery in Finding It and I wanted to see what made him tick. While we get to know him on a bit more personal level in this novella, I found the storyline to be a bit lacking. I knew going in it would be a novella and a retelling so that wasn't a shocker, but I just felt a bit bored at times.

    Don't get me wrong, I do love me some Jackson Hunt. And getting inside that man's head was definitely a treat! I absolutely love seeing Kelsey through his eyes because he is able to see her vibrant, free spirit and her beauty just by observing her. Everyone takes notice of her and wants to be around her- they really are the moths and Kelsey is the flame burning brightly and out of control. However, as he watches and observes her, he realizes that she isn't just a spoiled, rich girl running around Europe to party. In fact, he is almost shocked to see his former self in her. She's stuck in an endless cycle of self destruction and it reminds him of an all too familiar road he has once traveled.

    "It's just... I look at you, and I see a beautiful woman in the prime of her life, traveling to exotic places, with the world at her fingertips. But I think that's what you want people to see. And maybe I love a mystery too, because I can't stop thinking about what's underneath all that, what you don't let people see."

    Jackson is definitely tempted by Kelsey. She's beautiful and sexy and he is envious by how freely she is living her life traipsing around, drinking and having fun. But his envy soon turns to anger as he realizes this is a pattern for her. He is risking his own sobriety to follow her to bar after bar while she gets drunk and that is really difficult for him. He knows he can't be tempted by her, as he has a job to do. However, Jackson is definitely fighting a losing battle because there is so much more to Kelsey than meets the eye. And Jackson is the only one who can see past the façade she's put up and see how she longs for more.

    I enjoyed reading Jackson's first impressions of Kelsey and how he has fought his desire for her from the very beginning. Although it didn't quite pack the punch I was hoping for, I still found this novella to be a nice addition to the Losing It series
