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.

After loving Losing it, adoring Faking it, Finding it was everything I expected and more. The story reminded me of me, and as my best friend stated; I kind of have a feeling this book will smack you on a very personal level. She was right, and the book was very insightful and inspiring and everything I wanted.

Kelsey was an incredible character. She is lovable and fairly easy to connect with her. She is on this quest of figuring out what she wants on a journey around Europe. Traveling. What a best way to figure it out? What she figures out is way more that she ever thought she would. 

Jackson Hunt is a mystery. A puzzle that you won't be able to put together till almost the end of the book. And he is hot ;)

Finding it was written beautifully. You could actually imagine the places Cora Carmack amazingly described, even though you've never been there. And this book also makes you want to go experience all these places on your own. To see with your own eyes all the beauty that Europe has. And God, I want to. 

Finding it was a beautiful story filled with hopes and dreams. A journey of discovering who you really are and what do you want out of life. And all together entwined with a sweet romance. Finding it is a book you don't want to miss!

Most hostels were devised so that you met other people, and yet they were the loneliest damn places in the world. Everything there is temporary - the residents, the relationships, the hot water. I felt like a flower trying to plant roots into concrete.

"Honestly? I'm tired."
He laughed once. "That's because it's almost dawn."
"Not that kind of tired."
"What kind of tired, then?"
"The bone-deep kind. The kind of tired that sleep doesn't fix. Just tired of... being."

I knew I was lucky. Blessed, even. But it was a lot of pressure... trying not to waste what you've been given. I wanted to accomplish something. To love something. To be something. But I did't know how. I didn't know what. 
All of my friends were off chasing their dreams, moving into their futures, and I just wanted to want something with that kind of desperation, that kind of fire.
