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.
Cora Carmack’s Losing It was one of the first new adult books I read. I fell head over heels in love with Bliss and Garrick. The characters in each of the following novels hold a special place in my heart. But, no one more than Jackson and Kelsey. I loved their story in Finding It, so I was obviously thrilled to learn there would be a novella from Jackson’s POV.
This was a short, quick read that really gave me a better idea of where Jackson came from and what was going on inside his head as he was acting as bodyguard and babysitter to Kelsey. From first sight through first contact and when he starts fighting his feelings for her, while trying to keep her from falling apart entirely, I loved reading it all through Jackson’s eyes. Fans of this series will absolutely enjoy this novella.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review.
