Bliss Edwards is a virgin. About to graduate and not wanting to hold on to her V-card for much longer, she comes up with the solution to her problem: a one-night stand. The idea is to lose it as quickly and simply as possible.
Her plan is already flawed in so many ways, and when she meets a gorgeous guy – who’s reading poetry in a bar – she feels her luck is in.
Smart. Young. Gorgeous. Has an accent. (this didn’t do it for me for obvious reasons, she’s an American girl, the guy a Brit…) What could possibly go wrong?
She gets him back to her apartment, he gets very naked, and she runs – literally freaks out and bolts. There’s a lie about a pet cat and it’s all rather amusing.
Hoping to just lie to her best friend and make out the V-card has officially been swiped she heads to her first class of the year, to find a new, British, professor.
Don’t worry I haven’t ruined anything, we know that it’s teacher that she met in the bar from the blurb on the back of the book.
Losing It was a book I purchased on the cheap a while back, and I admit I have only got round to reading it now. It’s a nice easy read, and is by no means a porno.
It’s nice to laugh at the awkwardness of Bliss, and the near obsession of teacher made my mind wonder at least…
She can however be a tad annoying, the obsessively over-thinking everything was a bit far-fetched, considering she was willing to give it up to any randomer once she was wasted enough. But, I get that she is the female protagonist and that she was obviously nervous and falling hard.
Here are a few snippets of what to expect:
“When I asked a classmate for a rubber, you call them erasers, everyone laughed so hard that I was ready to board a flight straight back to London.” – Garrick
“Let me get this straight… you didn’t have a cat? Did you get a cat just so that you wouldn’t have to tell me you were a virgin?” – Garrick
I really did enjoy this book and I fully intend on purchasing the rest of the series. It was fun and awkward all at the same time and you can’t blame the poor girl for trying. I imagine a few of us are guilty of a little crush on Sir after all…
