Good Reads Summary
Losing It by Cora Carmack
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.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
While not the worst, neither is Losing It the best i've read of its kind. Gosh! I am still on the hunt for a decent read from books of this type. I've got a hankering, a need for a new Double Clutch! Another FOL! Or at least something that doesn't leave me wondering, 'is that what all the fuss is about?!'
It had good parts, funny parts as well as sexy bits and whole lots of awkward... all care of Bliss (and am I alone in thinking what a mismatch in name and character because, really, 'Bliss' has me thinking starlet of some up and coming 'adult' flick?!) Anyhoo... Bliss was funny in that awkward 'What's she thinking/Is she thinking?' kind of way. A question that begs the asking even more once man-candy-teacher dude, wait make that british-man-candy-dude showed up. And I laughed, as was appropriate, because the things coming out of her mouth, friends, I dare you not to laugh at her attempt at flirting! Them flirtiing =Funny/awkward/hot + me, waiting for disaster to happen. That said, I do wish the story had kept on as it started because wait a beat and the 'meh' started to make its unwanted presence felt.
'Meh' in the form of complicated friendships and even more complicated non-relationships. That honestly shouldn' have been big complications at all.
So, I laughed a lot over the awkward moments of girl unsure what to do then laughed some more over girl freaking out... and I would have continued laughing and enjoying LI, too... except yeah it's really didn't go anywhere i wanted. Basic drama of mixed signals, waiting things out and basic romance of want you/can't have you then cutesy sweet moments of one or the other key player being there for the other when said other is down. I liked the start, felt like ot could have been an awesome funny book... this one, however, is more of the same NA reads. As in sexy, but little else.
