Losing It (Losing It #1) by Cora Carmack

Losing It


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.


I remember when I first read Losing It I enjoyed it. It had been a while though and I had forgotten most almost all of the storyline, so when I saw there was a sequel I thought I should re-read it. I had been meaning to anyways since I love the authors other series, but unfortunately I was a bit disappointed. The story just isn't as good as I had expected. 

Bliss is soon to graduate college and is still a virgin. Apparently she is a control freak and so it hasn't happened yet, but she wants to change that before graduation. Her bff, who didn't seem to be a very good bff, takes her out one night to seduce some random guy. Enter Garrick who she stumbles upon after a few drinks. The big appeal of Garrick? He has a British accent! Woo hoo. I found I didn't actually like Garrick at all, even though he does have the British accent which just makes him oh so hot. He comes across as kind of a jerk at times and I didn't really see why Bliss would like him so much. So what he has an accent, there has to be something more there. 

Well it turns out Garrick is her new teacher so oh noes! What to do? Well just try and pretend nothing happened between them before, that they were not going to have sex, and everything with be fine. Only they can't stay away. Ugh. It just didn't work for me. I didn't see the attraction between them. I didn't see why they liked each other or that there really was anything between them. 

Bliss was also not my favorite. She comes across as very young and naive. She gets flustered and makes stuff up, then continues with her ridiculous lies when it would be so much easier to just come clean and talk to people. She is not very strong, she just tries to avoid conflict. Instead of talking to someone and telling them what she thinks she will just make it worse by avoiding it or making up lies. Really not my favroite character. 

Overall I just was disappointed in the story. I didn't care for Garrick, he was not dreamy to me, and Bliss was annoying at times.
