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. . . .
I had never heard of Cora Carmack until meeting her in Dallas at the taping for ABC Nightline. Other avid book readers gathered at A Real Book Store recognized her immediately. I admit I felt left out. During the taping, everyone was asked to read a favorite section of a favorite book. I got to listen to Cora Carmack read her very own debut novel, Losing It and was laughing so hysterically by the end of her reading, I just knew I had to read this book! Carmack’s rendition of the Bliss and Garrick’s encounter was hilarious and cute. This book is short, sweet and entertaining. I am currently enjoying the second book, Faking It even more than the first. Bliss and Garrick are adorable together and passionate even when apart. (Love the characters’ names!!!) This book was the perfect poolside summer read. Fans of Colleen Hoover’s Slammed will no doubt find this book enjoyable, while being slightly lighter in nature. Add in a sexy dude with cool name and British accent and what better way to spend your summer vacay!!!! (Yes, I read this while on vacation.)
This book just made me smile the entire time I was listening to it. Yes, I did the audio for this one and I definitely recommend it. The narrator, Phoebe Strole, was great and conveyed the emotions very well.
The story was just cute and sweet and enjoyable. Yes, it followed a typical formula for a romance (they meet, they fight their feelings for each other, they give in to their feelings, they have a fight and break it off, then something happens to bring them back together) but that didn’t take away from the good story. It was just effortless and I just listened and relaxed into it. I didn’t have to focus on the different characters and their plot lines or the world building and rules.
I don’t typically read contemporary romances but this one is just great and I am glad I read it. So much so that I immediately jumped into the next book!
