Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find where you truly belong...

Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She's having the time of her life . . . or that's what she keeps telling herself.

It's a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you're afraid you won't like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey's loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey's mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.

This is the third book that focuses on Bliss' fabulous best friend, Kelsey. After they graduated college, Kelsey decided to travel Europe. Kelsey takes us to exotic locations like Prague and Italy. She ran into this super hot, buzz cut, ex Marine, who is secretly hired by her father to follow her around.

Their attraction is just WOW! I was waiting for them to hook up. But Hunt or Jackson or whatever you like to call him is so calm and controlling that he doesn't succumb to Kelsey advances. He doesn't even kiss her when they first saw each other. I actually he was gay because he was being too much of a gentleman.

But then, Hunt showed her an adventure which she so desperately wanted. She learns more about her past and how she's gonna handle her life the way she wanted it. I think most people are going through this. Whether we like to admit it or not.

I wish Hunt wasn't a hired stalker because that would've made thing a lot more easier but then nothing is really easy in life. I just love Hunt. He's such a gentleman and at the same time he's very funny and fun to be with. I would trade places with Kelsey right now and backpack through Europe with him.

"Adventures don't happen when you're worried about the future or tied down by the past. They only exist in the now. And they always, always come at the most unexpected time, in the least likely of packages. An adventure is an open window; an an adventurer is the person willing to crawl out on the ledge and leap" 

Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She's done a multitude of things in her life-- boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing).
