Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, Bliss Edwards 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 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 THOUGHTSSo, I'm always a little apprehensive about reading New Adult books. Why? I don't like them if they have erotic scenes on every other page. Why I do like them? Because the characters are about my age. In Young Adult, they are usually younger and in New Adult they are usually older, but they are in college and I'm going to college soon too. So I don't know. But Francine recommended this one to me for Epic Recs in May, so I was happy to read it. And I might have started on it a little too soon, even before finishing the Epic Recs for April.
Losing it is about Bliss Edwards, who is the only virgin in her group of friends. She decides that she wants to get it over with as soon and as easy as possible. She goes out to a bar and meets a really handsome guy who she leaves naked in her bed with a terrible excuse. She arrives for college and she recognizes the professor. She left him naked in her bad a few hours ago.
Oh this is beautiful. I adored the blurb, it sound so cute and awkward and that was true. I love this kind of New Adult. Something realistic and awkward and I loved their blossoming romance too. I loved how she did not just dive into it. She had her own voice. She knew what she wanted and what she didn't want to. And I really liked how Garrick took care of that and respected her wishes (which I think is very important). And the epilogue, people. THAT EPILOGUE. I just wanted to read more and then I bought the next book. And I want it to arrive already okay.
Cora Carmack's writing is awesome. It feels so real and I think Cora Carmack is doing the New Adult genre good justice. I love how she wrote more books and I would definitely add them to my list of books I must read. Because I really loved this one. I giggled out loud and I smiled and I fangirled to my mother and my sister (they didn't understand it at all).
Would I recommend this novel? Yes definitely! Everyone should read it. Well not everyone. It is steamy for some parts, but it is also so cute and awkward. People that are a fan of contemporary reads (ME!) would really like this one. Besides it was/is on sale on amazon now! And they aren't too expensive on the book depository either!
