Quickie Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack

Losing It
Losing It
by Cora Carmack

Published October 12th 2012


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 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.

With a title and cover like these, how could I possibly stay away from this book? Day-am. I got it as quickly as I could and, ignoring my pile of TBR books waiting in line to be read this year, set up to read it. Because I just couldn't wait.

Losing It was a lovely read. *-*

And, strangely enough, I don't know what much else to say about it. Wait, yes I can. It all comes down to this:
Tall, yummy, sexy, youngish, deliciously built, kind-hearted, blue-eyed, British-accented Garrick. 

Her friends were all very interesting characters, but the rest of the story could not hold my interest. I found myself flipping the pages on my Kindle to see what would happen after, and did not stop very often on my way to the ending, to be honest.

Well, what else can I say about this book that I read in fastforward mode? The hot scenes were pretty hot, I have nothing to complain about those AT ALL. There were some stereotypes from YA in the book that pissed me off, even if this is what people are now calling new Adult (I guess it's just a sort of grown-up, sexualized YA). The couple spent most of their time avoiding each other, then getting stuck in misunderstandings and hurting each other, then getting together again... that was annoying. Oh, and they didn't talk much, ergo, the misunderstandings. Also, the ending was almost too perfect, I think.


  1. I've been seeing this book everywhere and have wondered about it. Great review!

  2. I see the cover, you have my attention, I read the title "Losing It" then I read the following word "virginity". I thought this might be a drama but it seems to have that and enough steamy scenes to way it out. Nice review, I hope the steamy scenes outwayed the drama

    Love the Loki pic

  3. I attempted to read this one, but I couldn't get past the stereotyping. Plus, the whole things about losing her V was ridiculous to me. Also, I live in England and no guy here says 'love', a 30+ year old man might say 'you alright, love?' but a guy his age no. Just no. Lol, sorry! Rant over. xD

    1. Thanks for ranting! ;) LOL. I didn't know you lived in England! That's so cool. But what do you mean they don't say 'luv'? O.o That's disappointing.


I would love to read what you have to say. :)
