Review: Losing It by Cora Carmack
Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, Bliss Edwards 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.
Truth time, I was kind of disappointed with this book. The synopsis and cover started off strong but the more I read, the more I was disconnected. I loved the storyline but I had two major issues with this book. There are 2 types of awkward that exist, the funny kind and the this is so awkward its making me sick kind. While I think the goal was to be funny within the first 50 pages, I was so uncomfortable with the awkward that I almost stopped reading. I was getting a stomach ache because it was so awkward…I couldn’t hand the extensive level of awkward.
I overcame that and continued reading. It did get better and there were funny witty moments in between. But things wrapped up just too nicely at the end. No consequences, no drama, it was like someone put a nice little bow on things and wiped the drama slate clean. This bothered me because I felt like there should have been more. So in these aspects the novel fell short for me. I will most certainly give another book a go but right now, for me, this book was a no.
