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 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.

Oh my god, this book, this book was completely and utterly A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It's been a long time since I've read such a great contemporary romance <3 It was just perfect. And please, don't pay attention to the cover - it doesn't do justice to the book at all ;)

Bliss. This girl is so adorable. I liked her immensely. She just over-thinks everything. And for the first time that she doesn't.. she gets scared and ran off. That was pretty much hilarious. And I really could connect with her and she was very believable as a character.

Garrick. Awww, British accent - I think I will fall for it anytime for the rest of my life. Better to admit it now. He was such a cute character! I so liked him. God, I sound like an school girl drooling all over her sexy professor - but hell, this book made become just that! And I loved every minute of it!

The writing was pure awesomeness. LOVED IT. There were so many lines that got me cracking and laughing like crazy. I don't remember the last time I had such a great time with a book. Really, the writing is hilarious. And Losing it is also a one sitting book - it's too good, so believe me, you won't be able to put it down ;)

Anyway, if you're searching for a good New Adult Contemporary Romance - Losing it is the perfect book for you! It's filled with chemistry, sexual tension, great romance, hot steamy scenes, friendship and college life. I would recommend it to everyone, really. This book is so good, you wouldn't like to miss it out!

I took a breath, reminding myself that I was awesome. I was not insecure or shy. I was just a virgin. No big deal. And if I ever wanted to not be a virgin, I was going to have to have sex. Time to man, um.. woman, up. "Are you waiting for an invitation?" I asked, eyeing him standing carefully outside my door. "Is this the part where you tell me you're a vampire?"
He chuckled. "No, I promise the paleness is only because I'm British."

God, it was really starting to hit me. I was about to graduate, and my life was nowhere near where I thought it would be. When I started school three and a half years ago, I thought by now I'd have a plan. I thought I'd know positively what I wanted to do and where I was going. And if I was honest... I thought I would have met the guy I was going to marry by now. I mean, every married couple I knew met in college, and here I was only months away, and the idea of marriage at this point seemed preposterous to me.

"I have a cat! I do!" Damn it... why couldn't I ever remember my imaginary cat's gender? "Um... she's gray and adorable and her name is..." I said the first thing that popped into my head, "Hamlet."
I was a genius. I couldn't even invent a girl cat with a girl name. It's like there was this bridge in my brain between the rational and the absurd, and somehow I had burned it. 
"You have a cat named Hamlet?"
"I do." Kill me now. "I definitely, definitely do." 
That was it. I was going to have to get a cat.

Oh gosh, Nea, this book sounds hilarious! I read the blurb and my jaw literally DROPPED! I have to admit, if I saw that book in a bookstore, I PROBS wouldn't pick it up, but this is definitely going on the front of my TBR list after your glowing review! :)
