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!!!!

    Good

    If you liked Finding it, like I did, you will enjoy this novella from Jackson's POV. He was a very misterious character for much of the other book, so it was great getting to know him in depth here. The novella ends when they meet in Budapest, so the story is short and focused on the parts of Kelsey's trip that are not described in the previous book or that focused only on Kelsey's account. The latter ones were almost replicated word by word in here, losing originality. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Still, I really enjoyed the read and knowing more about Jackson. He really is a terrific character in these books.

    4 stars - Still love me this smoldering solider!




    I totally love Jackson Hunt.  I was afraid when I started this that it would be a retelling from a different POV but it's not.  It's Hunt's story.  Really it's the part leading up to the two of them making a connection.  There is some overlap but mostly it felt like all Hunt.




    What I loved was how it filled in the blanks around Finding It, why he was the way he was and some of his nightmares.  It's not a sexy story like Finding It is but an answers story.  I like that it didn't try to be a retelling.  I liked that it would only make sense after you'd read Finding It.




    If you've read Finding It, then you need Seeking Her!  It's a great addition.  If you haven't read Finding It, then you need to.  It's what's great about New Adult and Cora Carmack is one of the masters.

    If you haven't read Finding It, I highly suggest you read it before this. You'll ruin so much for yourself if you don't.

    Seeking Her, Cora Carmack's final entry in the Losing It series lives up to it's name. Seeking Her delves deeper into the psyche of Jackson Hunt, Kelsey Summers' traveling partner from Finding It. One year sober, and battling his own post-military demons, Jackson thinks following a spoiled rich girl is going to be the easiest job he's had in some time. It isn't. All the girl wants to do is party in every city she visits. Testing the limits of his self-control, it's everything Hunt can do not to have that one drink, to keep himself unknown to Kelsey. 

    As Kelsey city-hops, Hunt finds himself more and more drawn to the girl. She's a bit of a kindred spirit, using what she can to drown out her own demons. But everything, and everyone has it's breaking point.

    Jackson's story is everything you'd want from a Cora Carmack story, funny, emotional, and awkward. If you loved Finding It you'll fall in love with Jackson all over again.
