Review- Losing It by Cora Carmack

Goodreads Summary:

Virginity.

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.


REVIEW:

Oh my God. I had absolutely no idea that I'd like this book as much as I did. Since a few weeks, I'd been seeing these great reviews of Losing It and I thought it was time I read it too and I am so glad I did. This has been one of the most entertaining books that I've read so far in this year which took me back to and reminded me of Meg Cabot's Queen Of Babble and Heather Wells (Size Doesn't Matter) series. Losing It was an absolutely fabulous read. 
The story is about Bliss Edwards, a 20 year old acting and stage management student who is keen on losing her virginity. Bliss has no idea what's in store for her when she runs away from having sex with a guy she met at the bar. Turns out that this guy, the very hot and stunning Garrick Taylor, is Bliss' new professor! 
Losing It is such a fun read. I found myself smiling throughout. I loved the fact that the book wasn't all just about sex, sex and sex. It was fun to read about Bliss' college friends, be it her best girl friend Kelsey or her best guy friend Cade. So this is where there arises a tiny complication. Apparently Bliss' best guy friend has always looked at her as more than just a friend. There is no need for love triangle haters to worry though, because Bliss is absolutely sure about her choice. 
Initially, I found Bliss to be a little irritating, but as I got to see more into her mind, it became impossible to dislike her. There were times when I thought she could have done something to make a situation better. Nonetheless, she was a very kind person. I loved loved loved Garrick. He was simply superb. Be it his looks, personality, teaching skills, acting skills, love-making skills or even better, to top it all of, British accent! He was perfect. I also really loved Cade since I'm a huge fan of the whole 'best friends turning into lovers' notion. He was a sweet, smart and a really nice guy. 
Losing It revolves around a play that Bliss' class has to perform based on Greek mythology and Bliss and Garrick themselves bond over Shakespeare. Isn't it just super cute when there is a literary aspect to contemporary reads? The whole concept was simply great.  
Losing It is an entertaining and lovely read. The love-making scenes were hot,the party scenes cool and the general college scenes were fun. Author Cora Carmack has written a fabulous contemporary romance that will make you want to turn the pages speedily. It is a fun, light-hearted read that is bound to leave you smiling and wanting more at the end.

  1. I've seen this book around and I didn't want to read it cause it sounds so typical and clisheish (lucky my morphology teacher can't see that), but now after your review I'm curious. Huh I'm weak. xD
    Great review! :)

  3. Awesome review! But wasn't sure about the book because the cover seemed over the top. I love Meg Cabot though, so if it reminded you of that I'm def going to have to check it out.

  4. I enjoyed this book as well - like you, I love how the relationship didn't revolve around sex. I don't consider Bliss and Garrick to be especially memorable characters, but it was definitely the story itself that drew me in. Great review! :)

  5. You had me at Queen of Babble. I've seen great reviews on this one too but not any that touched so much on the humorous side. Will for sure be picking this one up! :D
