Kelsey Summers is looking for love in all the wrong places…
Spending a few months travelling around Europe – with no parents, no responsibilities and a no limit credit card – Kelsey’s having the time of her life.
But when she completely embarrasses herself in front of the hottest guy she’s ever seen, she soon realises there’s more to life than the next party.
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. K ...more
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 wa ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 wit ...more
I'm quite disappointed with the outcome. I'll just let it go.
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, Typi ...more
I was seriously surprised by this book, since I wasn't as big of a fan of the last novel in this series, I didn't have high expectations about this one either. But I was shocked by how much I loved this. Kelsey was portrayed as this blondie-party-girl, who only wanted to live the high life. When Jackson came into the picture I thaught this was gonna be a pretty clicheed book, but in the end I loved how deep this story impacted me, for even though not all issues w ...more
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. ...more
The 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 ...more
“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.
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, t ...more
This 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 me
Kelsey started off very unlikeable, she was spoilt and spending her parents money. I thought she dragged the sto ...more
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 ...more
Oh, I digress. Let’s talk about Fining It now!
If you ...more
yep, 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!
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...more
4 solid stars
Maybe if I hadn't read (view spoiler)[Jen McLaughlin's Out of Line (hide spoiler)], I wouldn't have twigged onto the 'twist' as soon as the hero appeared on the page. Since I did, however, I was basically marking time until the grand reveal. It didn't help that I couldn't relate to the heroine as she indulged in very risky behavior and drank way too much. I also felt the ending was too abrupt as (view spoiler)[ there was no resolution with the heroine's family o ...more
"Say it." I arched my body into his, pulling at his shoulders.
"Say that this is real. Tell me it counts."
Oh my, Jackson Hunt everybody. Whew!
This was a tough review to write. There was so much I wanted to say because of how much it made me feel and yet I couldn't seem to articulate the things I wanted to...
Cora Carmack has done it again! I am absolutely in love with this series! This particular book really got to me because I remember when I was the one traipsing about Eur ...more
"If there's anything I learned with you, it's that one more day was never enough."
There are seriously no words to explain just how damn excited I was to get an arc of this book. I have been dying to read this one ever since the moment I read Losing It. I know, I know, I didn't actually know Cora was writing this one when I first read Losing It but I loved Kelsey so much I was desperate for her to get her own story. And she did. And it is without a doubt Cora's be ...more
But appearances can be deceiving. You ca ...more
Finding It, following in the wake of its hugely entertaining predecessors, seems initially as though it's going to pale in comparison, heroine Kelsey a woman who in the opening chapters makes us question whether or not we can even bring ourselves to spend several hundred pages with her as she makes one spectacularly poor and dangerous choice after another. The only excuse she provides for her bar and bed hopping is the self-delusion she's filling herself so full of life that when sh ...more
