Losing It by Cora Carmack
So, I actually finished this book last week but with the fourth of July weekend, I was unable to post my review.
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
And as if that weren't embarrassing enough, when she
arrives for her first class of her last college semester, she
recognizes her new theater professor.
She'd left him naked in her bed about eight hours earlier. . . .
Losing It was a great read. I love the story of Bliss and Garrick. Their first meeting and potential hookup was a great way to start the book. You could really get the sense of Bliss' angst about still being a virgin and the many mishaps that happen the first night she meets Garrick. Add in the twist that the next day she goes to class and finds out that Garrick is her new theater teacher, and now we are on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
When you read the book I could actually feel the longing and pain that Bliss and Garrick feel for each other and knowing that a relationship is out of the question. It was nice to see how they deal with each other and the unexpected twist that shows up with the story. If you are looking for a steamy read, you won't find it here, however you will catch yourself smiling, laughing and rooting for Bliss and Garrick.
The ending was not surprise. You start to figure out just how it would end. I would definitely recommend this book. It have a happy ending and bonus: it's a stand alone.
I can't wait to meet Cora at the New York Author Signing!!!!!!
