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.

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
