"Losing It" by Cora Carmack - REVIEW
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 saw Cora Carmack on TV! YES! She was on Nightline with +Colleen Hoover and I was intently watching for her! She was on with quite a few other authors, including this author, +Cora Carmack. Cora happened to be interviewed, too! So this is how I heard about this book! Right from the Interviewer AND CORA, HERSELF! NO! I had NOT seen this book on the Net before, nor had I heard of her before! HOW did I miss this? I do not know, except for the fact I was SO into Colleen's books at the time! I have already read and LOVE +Colleen Hoover, and her books are my FAVORITE, so I HAD to read this book! It sounded to good not to! How could you pass a book up like this one?! So I bought it that night, and . . . who could NOT LOVE this book! It was EXCELLENT! I had a rip-roaring time in the beginning at the notion of Bliss 'wanting' to LOSE her virginity! She sets out on a mission with the purpose TO lose it! How hilarious!
So, what does Bliss do? She made a . . .
1. Go to a bar/ANY bar
2. Find a good looking guy who she does not know, nor does she want to know, nor does she EVER want to see again! That's the point of a one-night stand, right?
3. Lose her virginity
4. Get RID of the guy
5. Be happy as she will no longer be a virgin for once and for all and can graduate a NON-virgin, just like the rest of her friends!
Does this work? NO!!! This simple plan becomes much more complicated (and hilarious at times) than she ever intended it, but HOW? She gets the guy into her room, gets him completely naked. in. her. bed!
The next morning in her Theater class, there she SEES HIM! The guy she a l m o s t lost her virginity to! The guy she LEFT IN HER BED NAKED! "HE" IS HER PROFESSOR! Oh, MY!
His name is Garrick, he is HOT, and he is British. That accent that made her melt to the floor the night before is now making her cringe at what she did! Bliss is DYING!
Garrick recognizes this girl! Oh, yes! That little 'sly smile' of his! He catches her eye! She is DYING inside!
They play a little cat and mouse, and are put into predicaments where they MUST have interpersonal dialogue, acting situations, AND SHE MUST PASS HIS CLASS!
Oh, let me tell you this guy is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! He is a definitely swoon-worthy! Eye candy! He is everything a girl could want!
BUT . . . they can't date!
He's her PROFESSOR!
She's a STUDENT!
That means OFF LIMITS! UGH!!!
They play cat and mouse! They sneak a kiss here and there!
They also . . . HA! I can't tell you anymore because if I did so, I would be ruining this GREAT story for you!
BUY THIS BOOK AND READ IT NOW! YOU'LL LOVE IT!
I promise you you will NOT BE SORRY!
This is on my list of the BEST OF 2013!
Referring back to the top of my review, I owe +Colleen Hoover a WORLD OF THANKS for being on Nightline and telling her fans she was going to be on the show, or else I may NEVER have heard of +Cora Carmack and her books! (I am now familiar with ALL of the NEW New Adult authors! LOL!)
I happen to be LOVING this NEW ADULT genre, too! It brings a LOT of fun to reading, and the authors have great story lines behind these books, too! No, it's NOT all sex. There are very good stories between the covers of these books! I LOVE the freshness this genre brings as well! This is a great genre I am truly enjoying!
The next book after this one is "Faking It", and stand-by for my review of that book! I've read that one, too! She has a third book coming out on October 13th, 2013, called, "Finding It", which CAN be pre-ordered NOW! Yes! I have pre-ordered it!
