Title: Losing It
By: Cora Cormack
Series: Losing It Book#1
My Copy: Ebook from Amazon
Bliss Edwards is about to graduate from college and still has hers. Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, she decides the best way to deal with the problem is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible-- a one-night stand. But her plan turns out to be anything but simple when she freaks out and leaves a gorgeous guy alone and naked in her bed with an excuse that no one with half-a-brain would ever believe. And as if if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she recognizes her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier.
I really enjoyed this book for multiple reasons.
1. Bliss really made me laugh at times. The excuse that she gives Garrick was perfect. It was beautifully dumb! “Stop! Cats! Stop” And then she goes out and makes that excuse real.
2. Garrick…whoa! A British one-night stand (well almost) and professor that knows how to turn a girl on. His English accent and calling her ‘love’ won my heart.
In the beginning of the book, Bliss’ life seems a little complicated. Really, it is nothing that anyone couldn’t handle but the more pages you turn, the crazier it gets. Fights with best friends, weird classmates, a complicated relationship with a professor, the stress of graduating really turns Bliss upside down. There were moments in the book where I imagined myself as her and how I would react to everything that was going on and it would be to just cry. I would have ugly cried in front of everyone so that they would have just left me alone, but Bliss didn’t. She stood her ground and tried hard to make everything work. It made me like her character.
What I really like about this book with the tension between Bliss and Garrick. As the reader, you know their feelings for each other; you know what they want. But they can’t have it so they slightly touch and long for bigger caresses. Carmack makes the slightest interaction sexy.
Oh, and I loved the epilogue. The entire book is told from Bliss’ POV. The epilogue is Garrick’s POV.
