Title: Seeking Her [Losing it 3.5]
Author: Cora Carmack
Rating: 2 Star
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.
Review – MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS
This book was really really pointless.
We see things from Jackson’s point of view in this book and it didn’t bring me anything to love about the story. If anything it just made me live the things I hated from the first one again.
For example, in Finding It she forces him to have a drink despite the fact that he was a recovering alcoholic and he didn’t put up enough of a fight to get her to stop. He didn’t even tell her that was why he couldn’t drink! Just so so stupid.
It also ended in the very worst spot for his story to end. I was expecting it to end when they started to fall in love because there is nothing there we really needed to live through his perspective, however it chose to end just before the one spot where it could have added something to the story.
In Finding It Kelsey gets her drink drugged and Jackson takes her back to his room so that nothing bad happens to her. She then begs him to stay the night and be there when she wakes up because she didn’t want to wake up thinking that she had been raped again and he tells her that he will be there. However, he leaves as soon as she falls asleep and we never get an explanation, not even a bad excuse, as to why he chose to leave. It wouldn’t have blown his cover or anything for him to explain what the hell happened!
It is just before this moment, the one moment where there was actually something I wanted an answer to that the book chose to end. It made me so angry.
So there, stay away from this one unless you want to read something pointless and infuriating.
Till Next Time…
