This was a light, cute read and was a wonderful way to spend my Saturday afternoon. If you are looking for a shorter, sweet, slightly fluffy read. REVIEW: Losing It by Cora Carmack Losing It Cora Carmack Cade's role in the book was often filled with more conflict and angst than the.

Isn't it nice when a book surprises you in such a great way? I was looking for a book that could get me out of that ugly mood I was in, and boy this book did it.

Plus, it was pretty short and I finished it in one sitting! I related to Bliss in many ways and how she reacted to certain things and I found myself nodding a lot while reading and the rhythm was easy and quick.

I really enjoyed Cora's effortless style. I liked it a lot. Like I was saying, I Thank you, Ashley, for recommending me this book. She's not the silly girl after a man, although there was some of that, but not too much which was such a relief. Plus, I think this is my first time reading about someone majoring in theater so I loved that. Long story short: Bliss was nice, normal and really funny. I liked reading what she was thinking about sex and how she saw things and all the things she got herself into; she has such a young soul.

I liked her. Now, let's talk about my favorite guy in this book The first thing I have to say is: Yes, four because I'm very gluttonous with no self control whatsoever. Garrick is very alluring.

So so so sexy. My biggest problem with these guys is that I can't find them in real life. And if they exist, then they're very well hidden or already taken.

Anyways, the thing is it was a relief when Garrick didn't turn out to be an asshole after he found Bliss in the classroom. Sadly, I'm so used to reading guys being jerks after that sort of thing happens so I was waiting for it.

But it didn't, so Thank you, Cora! And after he decided he wanted Bliss no matter what could happen, he was constant and really great with her. A confident man is a sexy man, if you ask me.

What I didn't like about the book is really a short list and on top of the tiny list is Kelsey, Bliss' best friend. I'm not judging they way she is or how she fools around but how she was so ready to open Bliss' legs in the bar for the first cute guy to show. And Bliss never told her she didn't have sex with Garrick. Not so best-friendly. Everytime Kelsey talked I wanted to close the book.

It doesn't matter if the person isn't waiting to marriage or if they didn't take a vow or something like that, having sex should be their choice alone. Stupid Kelsey. And I get that Bliss was the one wanting to lose her virginity but with a friend like Kelsey? Ugh, I'd rather be called a prude.

Stupid Kelsey Overall it was such a good book and I want to read more of Cora's books. View 2 comments. Feb 01, Beth Hudspeth rated it liked it Shelves: Probably more like 3. This was awkward as hell, but really cute! This is pretty much how I picture Bliss: Or a shirt. Or anything really. Whoever said one-night stands were supposed to be simple with no strings attached had clearly never met the disaster that was me.

Bliss which is such a cute Probably more like 3. Bliss which is such a cute unconventional name is a 22 year old theater student in Texas with a massive awkward side.

She is stressing out so much because well, she is still a virgin. This is basically what the book is about. If it weren't for the hilarious moments and likable characters I don't think I would have liked this at all. Her friend pressures her a lot and that really got on my nerves. An accent. Dear God, I'm dying. Garrick is a lovable British guy that Bliss is totally in lust with, but there is one problem, he is her new professor.

I really liked the scenes in class with all of the theater kids. They are all super dramatic and emotional, but what do you expect from actors?

All of Bliss's friends were likable and I loved reading about their outings with each other. There were a few things that were just kind of left up in the air, but it's nothing I'll lose sleep over, so I will forgive and forget. Plus, there is a cute cat named Hamlet, if a book has a cat as a side character, I'm almost guaranteed to like it. I had no one, but Hamlet. Who hated me with the fire of a thousand suns. Losing It is a short book so it's worth giving it a shot.

I think you will find the characters funny and engaging, even if you don't like the plot. View all 13 comments. This is one of those books that stays with you. In fact, I immediately went back to reread a couple parts as soon as I was done last night, at like 3 am, and then again this morning. The main character's name is Bliss. For one, I'm so jealous that I didn't think to name a character that. I LOVE it. She reacted to things the way I would have. The plot twist with the play and her best friend Cade was genius.

I want to go to college with th Ok. I want to go to college with this girl and be her friend. And then Garrick He was seriously sweet, he was British, he got mad, he apologized and then got mad again when she kicked his ego a little bit, he was a typical male who was very interested in certain parts of her anatomy.

I like that he was so normal and had to do a little "I'm Sorry" in the end. And these two, when they got together to kiss or other things, holy moly.

Like really, the air in my living room started to crackle. Those parts were SOO well written that I lost touch with reality for a minute. I loved how she was so open about her virginity in the end and they kind of embraced it. Garrick was such a gentleman.

Feb 25, Srikari rated it did not like it Recommends it for: A Schizophrenic? So one day, a book was written It had a boy, with a British accent mind you: It had a girl: They taught the world an important message through their "problems" So I am just here like This book bored me to death, but I didn't give up.

I stayed strong, I am strong. View all 18 comments. What you get instead is a sweet story of immediate attraction, and chemistry that develops into more. Have you ever met someone who instantly lit your insides on fire? Well, this is what happens to Bliss when she runs into Garrick. Twenty-two year Bliss is on her last year of college but has yet to go all the way with someone.

Well, that and his amazing looks! Unfortunately, or fortunately, depends on how you look at it, after a few hot and steamy make-out sessions, Bliss loses her nerve and flees the apartment.

Count me in the fortunately column, because I like characters to have more of a connection! The next day Bliss finds out that Garrick is actually Mr.

Taylor, her new drama teacher and awkward ensues. They both have the same goals with acting and love of drama. I loved this story! I found myself hopelessly in love with Garrick from the moment he enters the story.

Such a gentleman and never gives up! He was so open, just saying exactly what he thinks and feels without holding back. He had it bad for Bliss and he seems like such a sweetheart, I hope Ms.

Carmack writes a story for him, so he can get his happy ending too! A friend does not push you into going all the way with some random person to get it over with. Sex is not just some cheap act to throw away at anyone, IMO.

My favorite part in the end: She said she wanted my best line tomorrow after the show, and now I knew what it was going to be. This was a wonderful debut for Cara Carmack. View all 52 comments.

Oct 18, rameau rated it did not like it Shelves: This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell -blog. The premise of this novel is really promising: A chance encounter that leads to a taboo relationship between a theatre student and her professor. The head of the department points this out to Bliss: Mechanical, might be the best word for it.

But in those auditions—you were living in the moment. You were feeling instead of thinking. I saw shades of emotion in you—strength and vulnerability, desire and disgust, hope and shame—that were quite simply captivating. Bliss is way too comfortable in her small group of friends to classify as socially awkward. I have this vague impression that Garrick had his sweet moments and that he was patient with Bliss when she was freaking out over nothing, but those possible good guy moments were overshadowed by the lack of chemistry between the couple and the sexist red flags that would have had me and any other woman with a speck common sense run away from him.

Garrick is in the know from the start.

Umm, okay? In two words: It sucks. View all 22 comments. Oct 01, Jeaniene Frost rated it it was amazing. I laughed out loud so many times while reading this book.

It also gave me "One More Chapter" disease, because despite being tired when I picked it up, I kept reading until I was done. Very romantic and very funny. View all 7 comments.

Oct 14, Aestas Book Blog rated it really liked it. If you are looking for a shorter, sweet, slightly fluffy read, this is a great choice! Bliss Edwards had a problem. So, with encouragement from her best friend she sets out to find herself a yummy one night stand. No strings. Just hot, fun sex. She does find herself a gorgeous guy, Garrick. That much of the plan goes well. And there he is. Standing at the front of the room. Her new teacher. Let me tell you, the banter, the UST, the hotness was just intense enough to keep the book serious but just light enough to keep my heart fluttering all over the place and have the sudden need to turn the AC on… in October.

I was giggling and grinning and pretty much just all out enjoying myself.

Garrick was quite the charmer. Bold, but gentlemanly. He was very easy to fall for. Oh, and the accent. We got to see it in full swoony detail. I kept turning the page at the of each chapter so worried it would just fade to black but it just kept going. So awesome! It was pretty much just one continuous story which was a pleasantly refreshing change. I did find the heroine a little frustrating at times… she just always found ways to stop things from going forward by avoiding, not talking through things etc.

Hold on. I was going to have sex. With a boy. With a hot boy. It's an adult book - nothing closed door. But not super smutty either.

Oct 26, Alex rated it it was amazing Shelves: So I think I'm losing it, or have lost it And by it , I mean my damn mind. My head. My train of freaking thought. I feel like I've just stepped out of washing machine and my thoughts need to be wrung out of me like water.

I really loved this book. God only knows why I've been putting it off. Maybe it was the fear that the teacher-student dynamic could only be done a finite number of times before it became predictable.

Or the doubt that the protagonist being a virgin would make her shy an So I think I'm losing it, or have lost it Or the doubt that the protagonist being a virgin would make her shy and quiet, an identity I read about on regular occasion and am growing bored of.

It is nothing like that at all. Simple facepalm-worthy moments, hotter-than-a-thousand-suns scenes and proof that I shouldn't always trust my instinct. The only complaint I have is that I wish it would have been longer. And who doesn't love a good Emma Stone gif to summarise my feelings.

P I'll likely read it alongside some of the other NA and YA titles I've received from them, it's just a matter of when. Never mind, wrong book.

I'll have to read this one before I read the sequel. I can't decide whether I want to rate this 1 star or 1. I really did not like the heroine, she was incredibly stupid and not endearing to me at all. Garrick felt like a British character written by an American author - did not sound the least bit authentic to me. While I can say he definitely didn't fit into the typical NA hero that I've read in other stories thus far he was actually much nicer in fact , the inaccuracies surrounding his character and the fact that there's a POV change in the epilogue where his voice didn't really sound that authentic either tipped the balance for me.

It's a fluffy read, but I had too many issues with it. And I'll admit the cover's really not romantic at all. It's just showing the hero's pale chest and the heroine looking like she's not exactly comfortable. If you guys didn't think I was crazy before, you'll probably think twice after reading this.

I wanted to do a lyrical review for Carmack's Losing it and somehow with the craziness of the storyline, a wacky, dynamic tune that would highlight it perfectly. It probably doesn't help that I came from an Animaniacs marathon of things on Youtube just prior to writing this…"I'm Mad" came to mind and then this came to life.

Alongside a rewatch of "An American Tail. This might have some crude language and adult content, but it isn't anything that wasn't in the book. Yeah, not much else to say other than I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did writing it. I didn't like the book, but I figured I'd have fun with this all the same. I almost wish it'd been written in this way because it would've been more hilarious to have a lyrical play on words.

Then again,maybe not. Wake up, wake up, girl - today's an important day, It's been long enough that people think you're gay, Don't look at me like that! Do it now, up and at 'em, A man, you need to grab him And get this pesky thing called virginity out the way! Bliss aside: Knowing Kelsey is my friend, I'm sorry that I have to pretend That this doesn't worry me, no, not at all.

So I'll put a smile on my face, Get my sexy skirt into place, And out the door I go, just hope I don't fall. Oh my word, his accent is so cute! He's pale, British, and charming to boot.

I wonder if I can get him in my bed But oh my gods, I'm so dead Standing over there is Kelsey And she's screaming in the phone "Woman, after, call me! I don't want, I don't want! Kelsey aside: Yes you are! You told me! It makes my insides rot. From these feelings that I've fought, I'm giving it a second thought. I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm really, really scared! I've come into this so unprepared! Bliss, wait just a minute… Bliss: On the floor, out the door, I'll make my getaway!

Out in the parking lot tonight, Left him there, it's not right, But I figured he would laugh in my face. Wait a minute, I left my keys! Even while he was saying "Please!

I don't know what's wrong with Bliss, We shared far more than a kiss, But then she gets her things, running out the door.

What We Lose

Was it something that I did or said That left her seeing red? There goes my dignity, like my clothes, on the floor. Just another day, I start it with a cheer, Last of my senior year. The night before made me like a leecher. But then I walk into class, Who's that I'm strolling past? Oh for the love of I nearly screwed my teacher!

Awwww… Bliss resumes rhythm My best friend is in love with me, Please say it's not to be, Because I don't want to lose him over this. But I can't stop thinking of him, And my hindsight is dim, The things I want to do with him are way more than a kiss. Female gray cat named Hamlet: Cade in a crooning, melancholy style: And alas, but it seems, My love only exists in dreams, Not returned by the one for whom I have longed. Though I try to keep a straight face, My lonely heart feels out of place, And I wander, knowing not where I've belonged.

Oh no Bliss First Cade, then Garrick broke my heart, Though by then, I knew we were apart, Guess that it wasn't meant to be, can't kiss and tell. But then I realize A haze hits my eyes, And suddenly I'm not feeling very well Garrick Oh bloody hell We both got it because of that night you were pissed playing spin the bottle. Cade Why are you saying "bloody hell"? Just go with it. There are so many other stereotypes we're running in this, anyway.

I'm in love, I'm in love, My heart is a little dove, Flying about inside of me, And to think that what I've lost, I don't mind paying the cost, That by the end of this tale, I've lost my virginity! And that's the end, my friend Though next book, I'll lament again But for now, we're saying goodbye! Some of them had me rolling my eyes a while. Overall score: Dec 22, La-Lionne rated it it was ok Shelves: I can't believe I finally finished this book. It took me two months.

And now I don't know why I even bothered to finish at all. I'm not sure why I'm giving it two stars. I guess it wasn't horrible, but it wasn't even close to being somewhat okay. The reason I picked up this book in a first place was the cover. When I look at it I see a lot of different emotions. Maybe love, lust, frustration, longing, a little sadness. I felt like it was telling a story and I wanted to know more about it. But wha I can't believe I finally finished this book.

Losing Leah

But what I imagined was not what I got. Imature, annoying and just crazy. She is 22 and sick of being a virgin. After a conversation with her best friends she sluttys herself up and hits the bar to find random prince charming to put her out of her misery.

Ends up taking a random guy home. There is a lot of groping, making out and skin.

Of course he turns out to be her teacher very original. And of course it's not right and awkward and frustrating and a lot of other things. Then, there is another story happening. Auditions, who gets what part and her being brilliant at everything she does. I found it totally boring. Then, there is some drama between her and her best friend, who has feeling for her. After a fight with him she gets all pissy.

He wants to be with her and she wants to be friends. He's in love with her and that's why he can't be around her. I get it. But somehow she manages to make it all about her. She is angry that he ruined their friendship and how dare he, poor her. Now she is sad and feeling sorry for herself. There is a lot of me me me. What a bitch! Then, she goes on this wild drinking and making out spree. That game of spin the bottle was just disgusting. Her getting drunk, rolling around on a ground, laughing hysterically, hangovers the day after One guy from the spin the bottle circle was sick with something and exchange of saliva led to half of the group getting sick.

Cute right? So, now he and she are sick, too. Which lasts for two freaking chapters. Slipping in and out of consciousness. There is a lot of "He can't be real It's a dream.. He is not real I'm dreaming If he was real he wouldn't be here I'm dreaming, it's just my imagination. They both get well and start puking I love yous. I got the feeling that it suppose to look cute, but it wasn't.

I love you, I love you back.

Good morning, I love you, bye, I love you. Their I love yous were kind of like getting a new puppy, he's cute and cuddly and makes funny noises and you love him at first.

And then, this cute furry thing craps in your favorite pair of shoes and he isn't cute anymore. First and second I love you was cute, but after 17th it sounded like cute puppy crapping in your shoe.

You get to the Losing It par, which is nothing special. Then there is the ridiculous prologue. Not only it wasn't necessary, it was cheesier that cheese. He wasn't horrible, but wasn't something special either.

I don't get his "One month, love. We just need to wait one month. He is a teacher and it's not right. Groping and making out is fine?

Book Review – Losing It by Cora Carmack

What does one month gonna change? All kinds of no-no's and lines have been crossed long time ago. They did everything but had sex. So what putting thingy in a thingy going to change?

The whole story is just ridiculous. Sep 24, Sofia Lazaridou rated it it was amazing Shelves: Or maybe I was going to throw up. What if I threw up on the hot British boy? The synopsis of the book made me to want to read the book like a man who is dying from thirst wants water. What can I say? I am a sucker for this kind of setuations. He stood and offered me his arm. While they are hot and heavy she freaks out and leaves him.

In her apartment. Garrick except from be the guy Bliss decides that he is the one to take her virginity also happens to be her teacher and neighbor. First it's a little awkward but things change as the time passes. Cade is Bliss's friend and secretly he has feelings for her.

When he admits them his relationship with Bliss changes and that made is the only part I didn't liked in the book. I have seen before best friends falling in love with each other and I didn't want to see that here because I am i love with Garrick and I don't want to see him hurt. Friendships fall apart.I hope that helps ; Gentle, flower-scented breeze playing with my hair. Sep 22, Jen rated it it was amazing. In two words: It also gave me "One More Chapter" disease, because despite being tired when I picked it up, I kept reading until I was done.

I need this book asap! I'm glad it was only pages.
