Losing it by Cara Carmack 4/5 Stars

A fun, funny and sweet read!
My first by Cora Carmack but definitely not my last.

Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, Bliss Edwards 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 8 hours earlier.

The book wasn't perfect, but it was close. I finished reading it in the morning and the characters stayed with me the whole day. That for me is a sign of good story.

Our protagonist's name is Bliss -how awesome is that name?-
She is a fun girl that often ends up saying the wrong thing or doing clumsy silly stuff. I smiled at her silliness and easy personality.

Garrick was your typical nice guy. He is however the reason I am giving 4 stars to this book and not 5. I liked him, but as a British person and I can tell you he was not well written as far as backgrounds go. That is literally the only thing that is meant to be exciting and different about him so it should have been done a little better. But as I said, I did like him... he was sweet and kind. He also felt very real with his feelings: he got hurt, got mad, asked forgiveness... 

Bliss's friends in the book were interesting too. I loved all her uni crowd and I am pleased to see that the next book focuses on one of her best friend's, Cade. For a little while there I almost wished he would end up with her, he understands and knows her really well.

All in all a great and well written story. It just needed a little better background for Garrick and a better book cover. That guy on the cover looks like a teen not a professor at a university!

  1. This book was my nightmare! I liked very first few pages - it was light and funny (to the moment of the big reveal who Garrick is), but then it started to be so stupid. ;/ Bliss acted like a total child and Garrick was even worse. ;/

    1. Haha! Fair enough. I liked how light hearted it was, it worked for me.

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
