Losing It

Cora Carmack

Feb. 26, 2013
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.


                    Losing it was one
of those books I heard catcalls about long before the publication date,
needless to say I was very excited to read it…up until I saw the cover.  This is another glorifying example of why you
should never…ever judge a book by it’s cover.
                     The guy, Garrick looks like he could be in high school
instead of teaching as a professor at one…which is what Garrick actually
does.  He also looks…dare I say?  Kinda gay. 
Bliss on the other hand looks to me like a young mother and not a 22
year old about to graduate.
                           Anyway, despite my indifference of the book cover, I decided
to give it a go with the insides of the book since I really only had about a
week left of my Netgalley rental, and I really hate to NOT read a book that’s
on my shelf.
I am so glad I read Losing
by Cora Carmack!
It is billed as a New Adult, which I’m just starting to
crave reading.  Bliss and Garrick meet
before she ever learns that he is her acting professor at school, so they have
to keep it on the down low until Bliss graduates.  Which is really hard for both of them and for
us as readers.  Bliss and Garrick don’t
actually have sex until the end of the book which means Carmack has to add even
more gripping dialogue, sexual tension, and what have you to the story.
And BOY!  Does she
Granted, I was a little iffy about Garrick being Bliss’s
teacher.  There’s just something weird
and icky about that to me.  Anyway Losing It was such a good love story
that you couldn’t help rooting for them to get 
and stay together.   And I almost
forgot that Garrick was her teacher.  And
even though I dread reading the last page of a really good book, I was even
happy for the ending of this one.

I can’t wait to read Faking
, which is the next one in this series.
