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.

~ mini-review ~
Bliss Edwards is a 22-year-old college student who has a hyperactive brain. While she has no problem being analytical and judgmental, she has a hard time figuring out how she could function when she has to face issues that require her not to think. When her friend drags her to a bar, she meets Garrick, a gorgeous guy with a British accent, and she feels she’s falling for him. Although the attraction is mutual, Bliss finds herself unsure of wanting to lose her virginity to a person whom she barely knows. Panic, she makes up an awful excuse and leaves Garrick naked in her bed. The next day when she goes to class, she is mortified to find out that Garrick is her new professor. Can Bliss maintain a professional relationship with Garrick while they both have a hard time forgetting what hasn’t completely happened?
I must say I really enjoy reading the story. It’s true that Bliss feels embarrassed by the fact that she’s still a virgin at 22, but I like that she doesn’t handle the issue lightly. I also like that Garrick is a guy who knows what he wants but never hurries to do things that may sway Bliss’s decision. And it surely doesn’t hurt that he is gorgeous, rides a motor cycle and has a British accent. 😉
I guess you have to read the book to appreciate what’s really going on between Bliss and Garrick, but if I can ‘tease’ you with one thing from the book, I’d say the introduction of Hamlet the cat is LOL hilarious!
A story with likable characters and a fairly predictable plot, Losing It is sweet, fun and irresistibly romantic.
My favorite quote:
like the sunrise peeking over the horizon, she smiled.
She snapped the box closed.
She didn’t scream. She didn’t run. She didn’t faint.
There might have been a little crying.
But mostly… she danced.
