Series: Losing It #3.5
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.
So after reading the last book I couldn't help but read this quick novella about Jackson's side of the story. Granted it wasn't the entire story which was good because it seemed a little repetitive with not a lot of new things, even still it was sweet to see how much he struggled before actually going up to Kelsey.
There is a lot of turmoil in Jackson Hunts mind on what he should do with Kelsey. He knows he is supposed to watch her and keep her safe but she's irresistible all he wants to be is get closer to her and learn more about her. She's an enigma that he just knows is sad deep down inside and he wants to save her the way he was once saved himself.
If you've read the last book though like I said in the beginning it really wasn't anything new you couldn't have imagined yourself while reading the other book, the struggle and all that. I was hoping for more but again it's just a quick novella with Jackson's point of view looking out at Kelsey rather than us being in her bed like in the last book. Eh.
