Losing It by Cora Cormack Review

From Goodreads: Virginity.

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.

Rating: 3/5

Plot: 3.5/5

Characters: 3.5/5

Ending: 4/5

1) The boy on the cover looks like that, a boy. Garrick is supposed to be in his mid-twenties and it kind of creeps me out that he looks like a 14-year old on the cover.
2) Bliss' model looks NOTHING like how she's described in the book.

Besides the weirdness and awkwardness of the cover, I had a few problems with this book. But first, the good things: I liked Garrick and Cade's character. That's it.

The negatives: The plot was predictable and I was confused a lot. By the story, characters' actions, and Garrick's chapter didn't sound seperate enough from Bliss' POV. It sounded like the rest of the book and didn't match up with his character. Bliss' character was nice but also confusing. I don't believe a 22-year old who would be majoring in theater and not afraid of an audience, would be a virgin. And she would have noticed Cade's feelings for her. Bliss' character seemed to be molded to fit the storyline, not the other way around like it should have been.


The last line in the book confused me:

"She said she wanted my best line tomorrow after the show, and now I knew what it was going to be."

WHAT DOES IT MEAN? I couldn't infer anything that would make that line make sense.
