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 theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier."
Alright, I'm just going to dive straight into and say what I don't like about it. First, this is a New Adult book which I expected it to be... I don't know...more adult? For me, as I read the book it was the characters that bothered me the most. Instead of acting like adult, they played the teenage role of "I want you but I don't want you" and that got annoying pretty fast. For adults, I expected them to stop playing games with their feelings and start being real. Instead, they hid stuff and well acted like teens unsure how to even move on in the situation that they were in.
The plot of the story is what kept me going. I like the plot twist with the teacher and how the romance got started in the first place. There are a few minor characters that I felt help supported the plot really well. There are several plot twist in the book that I liked and helped me steer away from the annoying-ness of the characters whip-lash of emotions.
The ending was nice. Once they decided on their emotions and started acting like adult, I love that the ending made me happy. I felt satisfied and the disappointment I felt early on in the book disappeared.
Overall, this is a good book. Losing It entails an encounter that changes everything. The excess of amount of emotions (especially the ones of immaturity) I could do without.
I give it 3 BITES!
