Review: Losing It by Cara Carmack

Review may contain mature content.


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 wasn'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.

So I hadn't actually planned on picking this up right after The Edge of Never. I was going to wait until morning, but I just couldn't sleep! So I thought, I'll just read a couple of chapters and then try to sleep. It's safe to say that's not what happened. I was up until about 5am finishing this book. I wanted to put it down and go to sleep, but I just couldn't!

So the whole story revolves around our main character Bliss who wants to lose her virginity before she graduates from college. Honestly, I couldn't understand why she thought it was so important. But nonetheless, I enjoyed Bliss' adventure to lose her virginity.

Bliss was a great character. I just wish she hadn't let her friend pressure her into going out to lose her virginity. It's her choice, not her friends. That was probably the only thing I didn't like about her. Other than that, she was a pretty good character. She was hilarious, motivated and such a nice person. 

And then we have Garrick. He's a British theatre professor who Bliss first sees sitting in a bar reading Shakespeare. He was intense and sexy, and I really liked him.

Their relationship got off to a good start - until Bliss started freaking out because of her 'cat' - and then her new professor walks in and it's Garrick. I actually thought the whole plot around the student/teacher relationship was pretty well done. I really enjoyed it. I liked seeing the development in their relationship and the complications they had trying to keep their relationship a secret. Bu they were just so cute together!

The ending was kind of cheesy and predictable, but it made me smile. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book which is why it got:

I can't wait for Faking It to come out because it sounds amazing!
