Review Loosing it by Cora Carmack
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.
This might be a bit of an overshare but I was one of those girls like Bliss, I was a bit of a picky late bloomer. I wasn’t a freak or a Jesus freak I was just picky. And like Bliss there were those that thought it was weird or freaky or scary, but there was one guy that just thought I was fine or perfect, just the way I was. And I loved that with Bliss and with Garrick.
But not only was their romance intriguing, and interesting, it was also deeper and more complex because Garrick was her teacher. Not that its illegal in the college age but its definitely frowned up on and it definitely made Bliss’ life way more difficult but I loved how it showed just how much that relationship enriched her every movement, how it made her a better person, opened her up to new experiences and new people and an entirely new future that she hadn’t seen before.
There were a few things that bothered me, there was the inevitable love triangle, the fact that Bliss was just so human, and wavered in her small things but was steadfast in her true beliefs, I loved that about her as it made me want to shake her a bit to get her to the happy ending faster
I’m not a mother, but I know that if I had a daughter who was 14, 15 and was thinking about things, I’d give this to her, just to show her that if you wait, if you hold on something way more worthwhile and stronger and steadier and more beautiful can come.
