The Runaway New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!
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 theater professor.
She'd left him naked in her bed about eight hours earlier. . . .

Once I felt the connection with Bliss and Garrick I was able to settle down and truly enjoy the story. This is a very low angst book written in the heroine’s POV with some push and pull. The epilogue was sweet and written totally from Garrick’s view point. I wish this author had given me more of his inner musings because instead of just liking this book I would have loved this book. There is no other woman drama, the hero is no manwhore, and there is no abuse or violence.
I found Bliss charming, a virgin determined, and yet not so willing to lose her V-card to a British guy who reads Shakespeare to her on their first awkward, almost hookup where she leaves Mr. British accent in her bed naked while she runs out on him. The plot line is funny, no not completely original, but still complete and without holes. It didn’t leave me pondering the world, and my place in it, but it did what it was designed to do. The writing was solid for this New Adult strategy, balancing active and passive voice, limited descriptive, except in the steamier moments, and dialogue that resonated with its audience.
The premise is not an original one, but it is one that never grows weary and it has – Spoiler Alert… a happier ending than Romeo and Juliet. Bravo! I recommend Losing It to all ladies, young and old looking for a light romantic story with an edge of steam that will make you laugh and appreciate love without power played Shades of Grey props that seem entirely unnecessary.
I absolutely adored Losing It! Bliss' misadventures in losing her virginity were hilarious and heart-warming. I'm glad that she didn't just do it to be doing it. And her excuse for not doing it in the moment was so funny! Like, no one could possible make up something that weird, right? Wrong! Bliss running out on Garrick made me laugh and cringe, which was wonderful. There's several more moments like that sprinkled through out. Bliss is like a magnet for awkward situations.
Other than the superb awkwardness, Losing It is a fairly standard New Adult Romance, although with the student-teacher twist (which is one of my favorite tropes). There's plenty of tension between Bliss and Garrick as they try to stay away from each other, and try to keep their relationship a secret. There's also a pretty good subplot with tension involving Bliss and her best friend who is in love with her. Her absolute cluelessness was a bit unbelievable, but I liked it anyway.
I related to the character a lot because she was clumsy, had a lot of guy friends, had slutty friends and was the last virgin out of everyone she knew. I wish this was a series because I am craving for some more of that accent from her boyfriend. Being that I "read" it in audio I got to hear it consistently. I have to say, it teased me several times thinking it was going to happen and her awkwardness would always stop it. I pretty much laughed out loud a few times. I can't wait for my next book from her. I have downloaded several of her books previously but haven't gotten to them because apparently, sitting at my desk at work and reading a love story isn't worth getting a paycheck.
