New Adult Monday
.. a bi-weekly Feature where we will review and talk about New Adult books! If you are not familiar with this term, you can read my New Adult Discussion post!
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. . . .
The Runaway New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!
“Losing It” definitely belongs to the New Adult Author phenomena. Right after self-publishing, Losing It got picked up by Harper Collins imprint William Morrow Paperbacks and sealed a 3 books deal. Of course, I need to read this book! And, I must say it definitely stood out among the New Adult books.
College and still a Virgin
Bliss never really got a chance to lose her virginity, so here she is in College while all her friends talk about sex, yet she is still a virgin. When her best friend decides it’s time to change this, Bliss meets the super sexy Garrick with the hott british accent. Even though they seem to connect instantly, Bliss just can’t do it and runs away from his bed. Next day, she meets him… as her new professor! Ugh!
Quirky, Funny and Sexy
The first thing that came to my mind while reading it, was that it was super funny with all those horrible and embarrassing situations, bliss finds herself in. Plus, Bliss voice also is quirky and witty. She takes her situations with a lot of self irony and with tons of fun.
On the other side, the story is sexy and utterly romantic! Garrick will easily steal your heart ladies! He loves literature, drives a motorcycle and has a hot british accent! Bliss and Garricks love story is absolutely cute, sweet, romantic and hot!! Add in the quirky tone and we have a wonderful story to get lost in!
Losing It stands out!
Truly, Losing it stands out among the New Adult books as it is not filled with too much angst and broken people in need to be healed. It has the cuteness of Young Adult books but also the sexiness and maturity of New Adult. Bliss is at College trying to find her place in the world and not only college but also Garrick are helping her to find exactly this. Bliss is growing a lot in this story.
Losing It by Cora Carmack has the cuteness of Young Adult books and the sexiness and level of maturity of New Adult books. Losing It was funny, quirky and sexy and had everything a good story need, a strong female lead and a sexy hot hero! It’s perfect for everyone who loves a lighter romantic tale of two lovers without the tears coming with too much angst. Anyone who loved to explore the New Adult “genre” but isn’t into too much angst should pick up Losing It!
