“When I first read the synopsis about this book it was on another blogger's site and they were looking for people to sign up for a cover reveal. By the end of the synopsis I knew I had to sign up because I had so many different ideas in my head about what it might look like. When I finally started...”see full review » see other reviews »

“2.8 The story of a college student, virginal and completely self absorbed, filled with personal doubts, just isn't for me. It started out really cheesy just above high school drama, blech. I was ready to drop the book till a friend encouraged me to continue. Oh, very well, I finished. It did develop a more mature and fun story but it's still not something I enjoyed getting my reading feelings involved in. No more NA for me if I can avoid it”Yodamom wrote this review Saturday, November 9, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“I'm not a fan of the title or the cover, but it was a fine chick lit book. I suppose it falls into the romance category. I sometimes enjoy the random easy "girl" book. Nothing new here. ”Liz wrote this review Thursday, August 22, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“ I had been wanting to read this forever and just hadn't got the time to get to it, despite all the wonderful reviews and the super hot cover. In all honesty, I was sold by that hot cover. When I started reading Losing It, immediately I was hooked. It starts out hilariously and the humor continues throughout the book. Cora Carmack had me dying laughing when I found out what a hoo hoo was, and just kept me smiling throughout the book with her witting sense of humor. That is not to say that Losing It didn't have it serious moments, it definitely did, and it had its steamy moments also. I love Bliss' character. She is a virgin and consider herself an anomaly because of that fact. She wants to have sex, but she doesn't want to have sex, and has this internal dialogue going on with herself regarding the pros, cons, and everything in between that is comical and very entertaining. When she meets the uber British hottie Garrick in a bar and decides he is definitely the one, she wind up going home with him, getting him naked, then running out on him leaving him in her bed, and when you read what she is thinking during this process you will be laughing all over again. Just when she thinks things can't get any worse, she walks into class and said ditched uber British hottie is her professor in her theatre class. As you can imagine things get even more complicated from this point on out.
To say these two had obstacles to overcome would be putting in lightly. The first and most obvious problem being that the students can't hookup with the teachers, big no no. Then there is Bliss' erratic behavior and the bizarre and humorous lies she tells and then convinces herself of in the process. You will understand this when you meet Hamlet. Her relationship with her best friend Cade takes a turn in a different direction after a drunken party, which throws another wrench in the works. Then you have her best friend Kelsey who I loved and is a hoot herself and loves to get into the middle of things. All these challenges mixed with the drama in the drama they are putting on, the sparks that fly every time Bliss and Garrick get close to each other, her BFF Cade who would rather be her BF, and the feelings that neither Garrick nor Bliss can deny leave Bliss' head swimming, causing her to feel like a martini that has not only be shaken, not stirred, but also put in the blender with the lid off for while. That said, Losing It is and enjoyable and entertaining story, and I just loved it.
“Garrick is a very Hot British Guy locked out of his apartment killing time in a bar just reading a book. Uuh?
Bliss is in the bar to lose her virginity, her best friend finds out that she is a virgin and is appalled. So she is feels that it needs to be taken care of now like tonight. Problem Bliss is not attracted to anyone. Until she sees Garrick and boy is he awesome.
The next day they find out they had quite a bit in common. Garrick is her Teacher. Oops that is not good. Bliss now has to act like they are just meeting so the class doesn't know.
Story is good. ”
