Wicked Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Published: February 26, 2013
Publisher: William Morrow
Acquired: Digital copy

Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, Bliss Edwards 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.

This book is so delightful and such a fun read. When do you see a female character hook up with a really hot dude who turns out to be her professor? A really hot British professor at that! It's really funny how Bliss seemed kind of desperate to lose her virginity because she's still a virgin and all her friends are not. I mean, it's just so cliche but at the same time, the way Cora Carmack wrote it made it seem like it wasn't.

I knew that they really wouldn't do the deed at the start because Bliss is so nervous and all. She even had to conjure a cat just to get away from it. Little did she know that Garrick Taylor is her professor the next day.

I love how Cora Carmack wrote Bliss' relationship with her friends. They're a huge group but they are all so close. They don't just hang out and drink. They talk, which is very important for a good and long lasting friendship.

This book is more than just Bliss and Garrick's relationship. I fell in love with every single character and I was so happy that Cade and Kelsey got their own book, which I will review soon.

Cora Carmack is a twenty-something writer who likes to write about twenty-something characters. She's done a multitude of things in her life-- boring jobs (like working retail), Fun jobs (like working in a theatre), stressful jobs (like teaching), and dream jobs (like writing). She enjoys placing her characters in the most awkward situations possible, and then trying to help them get a boyfriend out of it. Awkward people need love, too. She is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Losing It series.
