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 theater professor.

She’d left him naked in her bed about eight hours earlier. . .

I waited sooooo long to read Losing It. Back in October I downloaded the free sample from Amazon. I had heard good things about the book but thought I’d try the sample first because I was nearing the end of my monthly book buying budget and didn’t want to get  book I wouldn’t like. So, I read the sample, loved it, and then went to download the full version … and it WASN’T THERE!!!! It turned out that Cora’s agent was pitching it to publishers and so it had been taken down anywhere outside of the US. Man, did I regret not getting the full version in the first place! I got it as soon as it became available in the UK but then I didn’t have time to read it. My luck just sucks!

I finally got a chance to read Losing It over the weekend and I absolutely LOVED it! It was definitely worth the loooooong wait!

Bliss Edwards is in her last year of college and she’s still a virgin. She feels like the last one on earth and it’s suddenly all she can think about. She goes out one night, with the intention of “losing it”, and meets Garrick, the perfect person to be part of her plan. But, it turns out, losing it isn’t as straight-forward as  Bliss first thought …

I liked Bliss, a lot. She was smart, funny, driven in her goals. and just a nice girl who everyone liked. She also had a tendency to over-think things and definitely wasn’t a spur-of-the-moment kind of girl.

Garrick was hot, sexy, patient, caring, and so funny. I’m English and to hear him say “love” to Bliss as a term of endearment made me laugh because I don’t say it and it seemed like it personified his Britishness.

I loved their relationship. It was full of sexual tension and “will they, won’t they” situations. Even though it wasn’t a relationship that was supposed to be happening I couldn’t help but root for it to all work out for them when things got complicated. I enjoyed the fact that it was set around theatre college, it made for a refreshing change to read about that.

There was a great cast of side characters in Losing It. Cade was an absolute sweetheart and I felt so sorry for him. Kelsey was a wild child but also the sort of girl that everyone should know. She knew how to party but she was also loyal to Bliss when she needed someone to help her.

Since I loved Losing It so much can you imagine my delight when I saw that Cade and Kelsey were getting their own books?! Wooooohooooo!

You should definitely read Losing It if you haven’t already. It’s sweet, it’s funny, and it’s not too lengthy. It’s the perfect book to read in one sitting.

    Okay so I have to tell you that after reading this review I was in Barnes and Noble and saw Losing It on the shelf. I remembered that you had given it an amazing review so I picked it up. Read it in a day and I can now say that I agree with your review! I am equally excited about Cade’s book coming out! Can’t wait to read it!
