Simply and shortly put: I. loved. this. book.
Now onto my long, possibly incoherent, and certainly unrestrained review. You've been warned.
Even the glamor of traveling through Europe alone and her daddy's limitless credit cards can't get Kelsey Summers out of her post-graduation slump. All the parties, the booze, the hot boys... they're distractions, but they're meaningless to her because she doesn't know what's wrong in her life. She's extremely privileged—blessed, even, with her Barbie-doll looks, theatre degree, and friends back home who love her—but she's unhappy, and what makes her unhappier is she doesn't know why. The bottomless, passionless pit she falls into can't be all there is to life, can it?
Then she meets the piercing eyes of a handsome stranger in a bar, and her world is turned upside-down. Life may not have been pretty before, but it also wasn't scary until ex-soldier Jackson Hunt came around... scary because for the first time in her life, she's met someone who ignites something inside of her—someone who makes her want to bare the parts of herself that she thought she had long buried and thrown away.
Someone who threatens to love her even after discovering her secrets.
Carmack's gift for crafting the most flawed—and thus beautiful—of characters, is stunning. HUNT asdfasl;dflkasf I can't even begin to tell you how hard I fell for him.Read more ›
Kelsey is tired. Tired of pretending, tired of putting on a happy face. Tired of feeling only half alive. She spends the summer after graduating college--the time when her other friends are excited to be starting their new lives-- trekking through Europe as a last, adventurous hurrah with the added bonus of annoying her overly critical father.
But for some reason, she doesn't feel any different. She's in Europe. She's surrounded by gorgeous men, at awesome clubs, and yet nothing feels any different.
Until one night she meets Hunt aka Jackson Hunter.
He's different than the other guys she's been hanging with. He doesn't immediately fall at the Kelsey altar and worship, like the other guys. And there's an air of mystery and danger that surrounds him.
In spite of--or maybe because of--that Kelsey finds herself agreeing to an exchange: the kiss she's been dying to get from him, if she'll agree to letting him pick their itinerary for the next two weeks.
This is where things really get good. The chemistry Carmack has written between Kelsey and Hunt is scorching. While Kelsey is all for jumping right in, Hunt tries to resist the pull and keep things strictly on the friend level. As their friendship develops we get to see a more vulnerable, and compassionate side of Kelsey as well as a softer side of Jackson.
When secrets are revealed that shatter their relationship and Kelsey goes her own way this is where she really shines. Because of what happened with Jackson, both the split and the things they've seen together, Kelsey really shines as she tries to pull her life back together.
Of all of Carmack's novels this was truly one of self-discovery and finding one's place in the world. I highly recommend.
We first meet a carefree Kelsey as she's partying the night away with some new travel buddies. She can't remember the name on this one guy and he can't really speak English, but doesn't stop Kelsey from hooking up with him. The only problem is, he's possibly the worst kisser of all time. And to her horror, Unknown-Hot-Soldier-Boy aka Jackson is watching on and having a good laugh at her expense. Soon Jackson is starts appearing in all the same places she is, and an unlikely friendship is born. However both are keeping secrets from the other that is preventing their relationship from progressing further.
They travel all over Europe on a massive adventure of self discovery. Both of them dealing with their own issues and trying to become better people. As they grow closer the connection between the becomes stronger and yet Jackson continues to hold back from a romantic relationship - the question is why?
Now I have to admit, I guessed what the big twist was from very early on - I'm not sure if it was because it's very obvious or if I just read waaay to much chick lit! But seeing it coming certainly didn't detract from the story - I enjoyed watching everything leading up to it, and when it was revealed I was still caught up in all the drama! And oh was there drama!
At first I didn't think I was going to like Kelsey. In the opening scene in the bar/nightclub, she came across as and selfish and quite shallow. However over the next couple of scenes, I started to see a different side to her and really started to like her. She may put up a very confident carefree image, but she's so lost and insecure about her entire life that it was hard to to feel for her.Read more ›
