Losing It by Cora Carmack

Final year of college and Bliss Edwards  a) doesn’t know what she really wants to do with her life, b) is just sort of sliding through by studying hard and being a “good girl”, c) has two really great friends who not only push her boundaries but support her and d) is still a virgin for no particular reason. After major pushing from friend Kelsey, she agrees to at least chuck the V-card.

After a disastrous, failed, one-night-stand with a Perfect Stranger who still leaves her hot and bothered, she finds out that he is her new professor. From there on Bliss is no longer using her head but letting her emotions rule. As their illicit affair continues, Bliss finds that life gets a lot more complicated when you let emotions take over.

Girls in their upper teens may find this enjoyable since they are still exploring what it means to be an adult. While the characters are underdeveloped, they are basically likeable and share some, though not many, characteristics with people in the real world. The plot is thin and the romance has no depth, but it’s an easy, quick read and it is burning up the digital best-seller lists.
