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. (via Goodreads)

I received an e-copy of this from William Morrow Paperbacks through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Wow, Cora Carmack. I knew you had it in you to top your own books. You did just that with Finding It. Though I gotta say, Faking It still remains my favorite from the three!

I immediately lost myself in Kelsey's journey. What's not to love? Europe! Hot guy! Freedom! Money! Experiences! But most of all, living! Kelsey didn't just travel for fun. It was a way for her to find herself again since she had a troubled past. I think no one deserves that. I wanted to hug her so badly because of her past experiences. I don't even blame her for her behavior. But I wish she did some things differently. Yet I guess that's why Jackson was there.

The relationship between Jackson and Kelsey was funny, hot and ultimately swoony. Even Jackson had a troubled past so he wanted to save Kelsey. He was able to see himself in her in many ways. At first, I wanted to punch Jackson because he was staying away from Kelsey. As they spent more time together, he realized that he can't really deny his feelings. So yay! They have finally got to admit their true feelings with each other. But of course, there was a twist. And holy moly was I ever surprised. Maybe there were moments when I thought of that. But I didn't want it to happen so I kept it hidden in my thoughts. Still, it happened. It broke my heart at first. Then I realized that their meeting was really that destined. 

The adventures they had together were really fun. They were like contestants of Amazing Race at some point. I felt myself being tired just from reading. They were running from this train to that train. Yes, tiring, right? My favorite was their race to the top of the castle. I kept laughing because Kelsey was such an actress! Well, Jackson knew her so it wasn't much of an act. But still, Jackson did what Kelsey wanted him to do. Sweet. Just so sweet.

Up until the revelation of the twist, this had 5 stars from me. After that, I felt a little down because of the way the story went on. I don't know. But I felt like the twist was just dropped upon me then boom. The story continued after a few months then a few more. It was somehow rushed already, I guess. But I don't care I still enjoyed and loved it. 

Finding It is a really nice novel about finding yourself in a different place with the help of a random person. It'll make you laugh and swoon while having fun through the adventures. Sometimes, the most unexpected things really come when we least expect it.
