Losing It (Losing It, #1)

Losing It (Losing It, #1) - Cora Carmack Read this and other reviews at my blog.

Twenty-two, about to graduate from college, and the only virgin among her friends, Bliss decides that it is time to lose her v-card. What better way than through a one-night stand right? Getting the gorgeous British man she met in the bar back to her place was the easy part, calming her nerves to sleep with him is another story. Creating a lame excuse, she leaves him naked in her bed. If that wasn't embarrassing enough, when she gets to her first class the next morning, the boy she had left naked in her bed is her new teacher.

I really liked this book. It wasn't overly imaginative or exceptionally great writing. It was just fun. You know that face you get when you get really good news? Like, the fluffy news face. Or maybe that face you get when your best friend tells you that your crush was just checking you out. You smile so large you can't contain it, you dance around a bit, and you squee in happiness. That's what this book was. It was a squee-worthy fluff-fest. It isn't the type of book to leave you with any deep emotions. It's a light read that is meant to make you smile and then let you get on with your life. It does it's job well.

I found it hard to get into Bliss' voice at first. It passed really quickly. I had this feeling that I wouldn't like her, or that her reasons for running out on the cute boy would make me dislike her or find her unbelievable. I found her quite believable. Her reactions to things made quite a bit of sense. Garrick was fabulous. I loved everything about him. I was a bit bothered to see a British male lead, as that is overdone in books I read lately, but whatever. Guilty please. I have no regrets.

The plot is light and simple. It is really easy to get through. I think what bothered me the most was that the timeline can get lost in things. There is one point where they exchange "I love yous" and it felt a bit abrupt for me. I had somehow expected that less time had past than had actually gone by. Otherwise the writing was smooth and quite enjoyable. There were quite a few times where I laughed out loud at something funny that Bliss would say, usually in her head.

All in all, this is a really nice read if you just want a quick squee. Perfect length for a rainstorm and completely easy to read in one sitting.
