Losing It (Losing It #1)
by Cora Carmack
What is it about:
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.
What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
We've been looking forward to Cora's YA book Roar, which releases this month. After Sullivan met Cora Carmack in Berlin last month, I decided I had to try one of her New Adult books as well.
And what a fun read!
Bliss is an awkward, but very likeable heroine and I rooted for her while she keeps doing idiotic things on impulse. Her night with Garrick is cringe-worthy, but funny to read. Then she discovers he's the new theatre professor and she has to handle her attraction to him. Throw in a meddling friend, someone with a crush on Bliss, and you have a book full of fun and hilarious events that might lead to a happy end for Bliss.
I think Carmack did a great job on this story. It never got too embarrassing and even though it felt a bit unbelievable at times, it never felt too out of there for me.
After reading this book I'm even more curious about Roar, and I will confess I already ordered Keeping Her, which continues the adventures of Bliss.
Why should you read it:
It's a fun and funny New Adult read.
