The Skinny: Best book in the series!
I discovered Cora’s books as a result of New Leaf Literary’s fantastic PR campaign. The various Tumblr posts and tweets inspired me to order LOSING IT, and I was hooked. This series is just so, so good. I laugh at loud, feel tears pool in my eyes, and blush in embarrassment with each book. Cora’s writing style brings a crispness to New Adult and embodies the foundation on which this genre is built.
In FINDING IT, Kelsey bounces around Europe in an attempt to flee from past traumas. She meets Hunt, a man who understands the darkest parts of her personality while simultaneously encourages her to embrace the brightest aspects of her life. The way Hunt and Kelsey evolve feels natural and sweet. I love their chemistry – a slow burn that Cora fuels with each page.
Cora Carmack has the ability to put a spotlight on relatable situations and describes them with precision and honesty. I admire her talent and respect the risks she takes with her characters. She rips them apart, forces them to face their demons, and slowly rebuilds them with threads of hope and buttons of strength.
I really enjoyed FINDING IT, and I highly encourage readers to start this series immediately. It is the type of book that will expand reading palates and expose readers to a talented writer.
