Synopsis

Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She’s having the time of her life…or that’s what she keeps telling herself.

It’s a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you’re afraid you won’t like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey’s loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey’s mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.

Mackenzie “Max” Miller has a problem. Her parents have arrived in town for a surprise visit, and if they see her dyed hair, tattoos, and piercings, they just might disown her. Even worse, they’re expecting to meet a nice, wholesome boyfriend, not a guy named Mace who has a neck tattoo and plays in a band. All her lies are about to come crashing down around her, but then she meets Cade.

Cade moved to Philadelphia to act and to leave his problems behind in Texas. So far though, he’s kept the problems and had very little opportunity to take the stage. When Max approaches him in a coffee shop with a crazy request to pretend to be her boyfriend, he agrees to play the part. But when Cade plays the role a little too well, they’re forced to keep the ruse going. And the more they fake the relationship, the more real it begins to feel.

Losing It – Cora Carmack

16034964Synopsis

Virginity.

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.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

My Review

“Best thing that ever happened to me…that girl finding out about us.”…
“I’m going to pretend you didn’t just say my best friend was the best thing to ever happen to you.”

Bliss is twenty two and about to graduate from college. The thing is, she still has her virginity in tack. Being the only one out of her friends that is still a virgin, she decides the only way to ‘get rid’ of it is to have a one night stand. Only problem is, when she’s about to have sex, she freaks out and leaves the gorgeous guy in her bed, alone, while she watches and waits for him to leave so she can go back in her flat. If that wasn’t embarrassing enough, the next day in class, there’s a new teacher, and it’s none other than the guy she left behind mere hours ago.

Garrick, or Mr Taylor seems more than surprised to see Bliss in his class. After the lesson, he asks her to stay back and they both decide that they should keep things professional, even though you can feel the sexual chemistry between them. Agreeing, Bliss can’t stop her mind from being on Garrick but because he wants to be professional and she doesn’t want to lose her scholarship, she tries to do the same. But there gets to a point where staying away just isn’t going to happen and the chemistry is too strong for them to ignore it, so they decide to keep their relationship a secret until she graduates where they can be together freely.

Bliss and Garrick are the perfect literary couple. The first time they meet you could see the attraction for each other and how affected Bliss was when she was around him. Garrick is British (Like me), loves theatre/acting, reads Shakespeare and is the perfect guy for Bliss as she is doing a theatre degree and loves Shakespeare too! As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews where there is a teacher/student relationship, it is my favourite kind of book. I didn’t think it was a big deal if Bliss and Garrick were together, mostly because they were both around the same age and Bliss only had a few months before she graduated and then she and Garrick would be leaving the school. But I did understand that in the end, he was of authority, so they still had to keep it a secret until she graduated.

When they do have sex, I found it was the right time for Bliss and definitely the best situation as she was in love with Garrick, they had been through quite a lot in the past few months they had been together but worked past it and she was on a high from having the best performance in the college play playing the lead role. It was intense and funny and everything sex should be when you’re first time is with the one you love.  The one line from this sex that had me in stitches was:

“Let me get this straight… you didn’t have a cat? Did you get a cat just so that you wouldn’t have to tell me you were a virgin?”

You don’t need me to tell you what she told him when she bailed the first time. But Garrick was lovely and didn’t want to push her into having sex, but Bliss knew it was the right time for her and so began the next step of their relationship.

The scene I loved the most was when she has mono and Garrick was looking after her, but she thought she was dreaming him being there, and then when he got mono, she looked after him too. It was great to see that they truly did care for one another to make sure they were both doing okay throughout their sickness and it was the first time either of them confessed their feelings.

I found this book to be amazingly brilliant. It had me sighing, laughing and gasping and I was really jealous of their love for one another, even when they decided to stay away and keep it professional, they just kept getting pulled back together until it was inevitable they were made for one another.
You should really download this book and give it a go, it’s definitely one to read and you will fall in love with Garrick…that is a no-brainer!
