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. (SOURCE)
This is one of those books I found myself identifying with characters immediately. It’s real and funny and delicious.
Bliss is the kind of character that I can relate to. I could see a bit of myself in her; in the way she thinks, and reacts. Bliss is awkward and funny but her experience with guys is limited. She feels left out, being the only one of her friends that is still a virgin.
She’s tired of being that girl and her best friend decides she should find someone to have a one night stand with. Bliss very reluctantly goes along with it, allowing herself to be dressed up and taken to a bar. There, she meets a deliciously accented guy and they hit it off. I found myself really hoping this smart, funny, charming guy may make a huge impact on Bliss’ life.
Thinking he could be the one that can help her out, Bliss takes him home with her. When things heat up between the pair, she leaves him in her bed, making up a rather funny excuse for taking off. But the giggles don’t end there because once she gets outside, Bliss realizes she’s barely dressed and doesn’t have her apartment keys.
Never expecting to see the gorgeous would have been one night stand, Bliss allows her best friend to think she had sex with him. Who would ever be the wiser? But one day she walks into a classroom to see him again. Turning her world upside down and, I admit, making me flail around a little at their possible second chance.
Things are easy for Bliss, with having feelings for this new guy that she shouldn’t get involved with, an unexpected confession from her best [guy] friend and her classes. That girl has a lot on her plate. There’s a lot of misunderstandings, confusion, heart flip flopping, swooning moments. I really enjoyed the story though. It felt like one of the most real books I’ve read in a while. Losing It has a lot of heart.
