This week, my "Book Boyfriend of the Jackson Hunt from Finding It by Cora Carmack.  I think he is the hottest guy that Cora has created so far.  He's tall, dark, and mysterious, with that military look of muscles and short dark hair cut.....yes HOT.  

FINDING IT (Losing it #3)
Published: 10/15/14
Publisher:  William Morrow

Synopsis:
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.

Quotes:

My amused stalker had olive-toned skin, dark eyes, and hair cut close to his head. He had that muscled, military look about him, which sparked half a dozen dirty puns in my head about him invading my territories.

Everyone deserves one grand adventure, that one time in life that we always get to point back and say, "Then...then I was really living."

"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" 

You're my adventure. The only one I want to have. So, if this doesn't work, I'll try something else. If the military taught me anything, it was to be persistent. To whether the storms. So, that's what I'll do. -  Jackson

He wasn't nearly as uninterested as he wanted me to believe, and that was what made him interesting.  

"I'm going to kiss you, princess. But not now, not when you're telling me to. Not when it's just something you want to check off a list. I'll kiss you when it counts."  
-  Jackson

He growled, "This counts," before nipping my bottom lip.  I didn't know what he was saying, but I nodded because his leg pushed between mine, anchored at the juncture between my thighs, and every shift or movement caused something to rend and then mend inside me.
"Say it."
I arched my body into his, pulling at his shoulders.
"Say what?"
"Say that this is real. Tell me it counts."
He pressed his forehead against mine, and that thing that tore inside of me was so loud that it had to be real. Something hung in the space between my heart and lungs, detached from where it had been.
"This is real." I shivered, suddenly cold under the spray of water.

“I’m not telling you how you feel. I would never do that. I’m just asking you to let me in. Let me feel it with you” ...Jackson 

"I'm going to kiss you, princess. But not now, not when you're telling me to. Not when it's just something you want to check off a list. I'll kiss you when it counts. .... Jackson 

"You scare me," I said.
"You have nothing to be scared of. I won't...I wouldn't. I'll help you get to bed, and then I'll leave, get another room."
He thought I didn't trust him...that he might do something.
"Not that. I don't think that."
"Then why do I scare you?"

"Because I don't want you to see."
"See what?"
"Me."
