Summary from GoodReads:
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.
You guys, with the arrival of Spring, all I’ve been wanting to read is lighter, contemporary romance-y books. I haven’t even read a book that I need to for review, because I just couldn’t pick up anything that isn’t light and sweet. So when a teen patron told me I HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK STRAIGHT AWAY (this is a normal phrase from this teen), I thought, hey this is the type of book that has been the only think I’ve wanted to read lately. I’ve seen Losing It around the blogosphere a lot over the last few months, and thought: what the heck? I’m really liking the bullet list reviews, so here’s another one 🙂
- Losing It was pretty much what I was expecting. It’s cute, and I like the main characters. Oh and there is a Happily Ever After because, you know, it’s a romance. 🙂
- Did it change my world? No. But that’s okay. Not all books need to do that.
- There wasn’t really a love triangle and I LOVED that. You all know how much I hate love triangles.
- The main character’s name is Bliss. It’s the most ridiculous name, ever. I actually just featured her name in my TTT post yesterday. Thank goodness this book was told from Bliss’s POV, so that I didn’t have to “hear” her name that often. But every time I did, it took me out of the story.
- I did find it a little odd that Bliss’s BFF wanted her to lose her virginity with some random guy she met in a bar. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, but I couldn’t quite understand why Bliss was going along with her friend’s plan.
- Who wouldn’t love Garrick (the love interest). He’s cute, he’s British (with the British accent!!) and he’s not a jerk. He’s a nice guy.
- There’s a lot of acting talk since Bliss is in school for theater. After a bit, that got a little old. Maybe if you are interested in acting, you might not find it tedious, though.
- I did get a little uncomfortable that Garrick was Bliss’s college teacher. If they wanted to be with each other, they had to hide it, and that made me feel weird. But at least they were close in age, and they met before they knew that Garrick was her teacher, so that’s good.
So, yeah, I liked Losing It. You get what you expect with this book. Is it the most amazing book ever, and will it stick with you until you die? No. And I don’t mean that as only serious books are the ones that stick with you. A lot of my favorites are light reads. But this one won’t stick with me. If you like New Adult, or romance, then pick up this one.
