Review: Losing It #3.5, Seeking Her by Cora Carmack

17873497Blurb from Goodreads

A few months after being honorably discharged from the military, Jackson Hunt is still struggling to adjust back to the real world. He needs to get a job and find a sense of normalcy if he’s going to keep his own demons at bay. The job that falls into his lap, though, is anything but normal.

Bodyguard (and baby-sitter) to spoiled-rich-girl Kelsey Summers isn’t exactly what he’d been looking for, but it’s a chance to travel, to get away from the home that has felt stifling ever since his return. It would be a pretty sweet gig if it weren’t for the fact that Kelsey’s father doesn’t want Kelsey to know she’s being followed. Hunt feels guilty (and a little bit creepy) as he watches her from afar. She’s vibrant and infuriating, exciting and reckless, mysterious and familiar. When he sees her falling into the same patterns that he suffered years ago, he decides it’s time to stop watching and help her instead. But getting to know her is more difficult than he thought, especially because the more he knows her, the more he wants her.

My Thoughts
As Finding It novella, I didn’t remember much about Jackson and Kelsey original story. And the fact that it was my least favorite of the series made me didn’t care much about them. On the other hand, I remember that I was quite curious of Jackson POV. So when I knew that this novella is a glimpse from his POV I didn’t hesitate to read it.

I’m glad he told his POV long before Kelsey told hers in Finding It. So I didn’t feel like I read the same story twice. First part of the novella is purely new scenes. They weren’t in Finding It. I think it’s a good think as I also got a bit about Jackson past.

However I was also bored. Knowing what he has to do for Kelsey’s father and the similar things that Kelsey does, made it quite boring while the second half, the part that I thought will be boring since I’ve already known it from Kelsey’s POV was more interesting. It was just so weird, if you ask my opinion. But maybe it was just because that was the part where they interact with each other. Hence there are conversation and all between them.

After 3 books and 2 novellas, I still think that Faking It is my favorite. And I think it’s time for Max and Cade to have their novella, as Bliss and Garret and Jackson and Kelsey have already had their own novellas.

Result: 2.5 out of 5 stars
