Summary (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.“
This is basically the first part of Finding It, as told from Jackson’s perspective.
Like all of Cora Carmack’s books, this is fun and sweet and hot. While we do know the story, it’s still very fun to hear the events from Jackson’s perspective. (Or half the events; it ends in the hotel room the night Kelsey was drugged.)
I wouldn’t say this is a must read but if you need a quick Cora Carmack fix while waiting for All Lined Up (CANNOT WAIT!), this novella is for you. :)
