Review: Losing it by Cora Carmack


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.

My thoughts

I really enjoyed Losing it. A nice offering in the New Adult genre.

Losing it is the story of Bliss. Bliss is about to graduate from college and is worried because she she is still a virgin. Her friend decides to help her change this by taking her out to meet a man. They both get dressed up and head out to a club where Bliss meets a gorgeous blonde and British man who she ends up taking home but before the deed is done she bails and ends up leaving him naked in her bed. If that was embarrassing enough the next morning when she arrives at her class the gorgeous blonde is teaching her class!

I really enjoyed seeing the relationship between the two unfold in this story. Garrick is gorgeous and kept me reading. I did find myself swooning a little bit (and cringing every time he referred to Bliss as love). Bliss made me laugh. She is a real drama queen and I found her really funny and enjoyed seeing the pickles she got herself into.

The only thing the really really irritated me about this books were the names of the characters. I don't know if it is an American thing but all of them are odd. Garrick? Seriously I have never ever heard of it being used as a name in the UK ever. I hate is when Americans come up with 'British' names they really aren't.

A quick and enjoyable read which I'd recommend.

I really want to read this book but I can't find it anywhere! I hear a roomer that it's been picked up by a traditional UK publisher. Fingers crossed it's released soon.
