Seeking Her (Losing It #3.5) [Kelsey Summers & Jackson Hunt] by Cora Carmack ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

This is my least favorite of the bunch. I DID came to like Kelsey and I enjoyed Hunt's character but I think that this one, as a separate novella is somewhat lacking / not interesting enough. I think it would have been better if Hunt's POV would have been part of "Faking It" and maybe with Hunt thinking in retrospect of the time before they meet in the club in Budapest. 

This novella is told solely from Hunt POV and tells us how he came to "babysit" Kelsey. About half of the novella is about Hunt watching Kelsey (meaning a part we haven't read before), continues with the beginning of their time together in Budapest (The beginning of "Faking It") and concludes in the night he takes her to his hotel after she is being drugged.

I would have LOVED to read about Hunt's time apart from Kelsey nearing the end of "Faking It" but naturally it would have stretched this one for too long.. and anyhow I felt that the beginning of her vocation in Europe in this novella as well as in "Faking It" was quite redundant..

The only "light" in this novel was seeing Kelsey from Hunt's POV. He saw things in her she doesn't see in her self, he saw her darkness and her pain - so like his own, he sees the good in her, the kindness and things that as we read from her POV she doesn't give any attention like how much she influences people, how people gather around her, the fact that she is a really kind and good person. 

Not a "must read" since most of the details we get about Hunt was already disclosed in "Faking It" it's mostly interesting so we get why and how Hunt fell for Kelsey but there is nothing in there that makes this story a "whole", it's a nice little add that's all.
