Review: Losing It

Losing It

By: Cora Carmack

Rating: 5/5 Stars



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 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 had heard quite a bit of buzz about this book long before I ever considered purchasing it.  When I checked the blurb my first thought was, "Why would I care how this chick loses her V-card?"  Later, I saw on FB that the book was on sale for only 99 cents, and I finally figured, "Well, it can't be so bad that it's not worth a dollar!"  Then it sat on my kindle...  And sat...  And sat some more.  If kindle books could collect dust, you wouldn't be able to read the cover anymore.  Finally, a few nights ago I was quickly skimming through my carousel when I accidently opened this book.  I figured since it was already open, I could read a page or two, and within those first two pages, I was hooked.
What the heck was I thinking?  Why did I wait that long?!  I felt like a complete idiot wasting time avoiding this book.  I could have already read it and moved on to the sequel (which is what I'm going to be doing soon).  If you're worried about reading this book, seriously?  Download the sample.  Read the first two pages.  If you don't laugh.. Well, you and I are on different wavelengths.  This book was nothing like what I expected.  It was fun, it was witty, I laughed, I sighed, heck, I even blushed. =P 

Bliss is such a fun character with her crazy cat and drunken nights.  It's not many characters that would be so devoted to a lie than to buy the most ornery cat to prove they weren't lying when they actually were.  Garrick is a great book boyfriend, but perhaps I just love a man that calls someone "love."  Garrick and Bliss' humour seems to feed of one another, and I admit that I laughed often enough in this book to earn myself a "Shut up!  I'm trying to sleep!"

Basically, this book is awesome, and I'm so glad I accidently opened it.  Seriously?  Do you read NA?  Then read this book.
