|Probably more like 3.5 stars. This was awkward as hell, but really cute!
This is pretty much how I picture Bliss:
It wasn’t until I’d walked halfway across the parking lot that I realized:
1. I wasn’t wearing shoes.
A. Or a shirt.
2. I didn’t bring my keys
A. Or anything really.
3. I’d just left a complete stranger in my apartment.
Whoever said one-night stands were supposed to be simple with no strings attached had clearly never met the disaster that was me.
Bliss (which is such a cute unconventional name) is a 22 year old theater student in Texas with a massive awkward side. She is stressing out so much because well, she is still a virgin. This is basically what the book is about. If it weren’t for the hilarious moments and likable characters I don’t think I would have liked this at all. Her friend pressures her a lot and that really got on my nerves.
An accent. HE HAS A BRITISH ACCENT. Dear God, I’m dying.
Garrick is a lovable British guy that Bliss is totally in lust with, but there is one problem, he is her new professor. — Cue the dramatic music. I really liked the scenes in class with all of the theater kids. They are all super dramatic and emotional, but what do you expect from actors? All of Bliss’s friends were likable and I loved reading about their outings with each other.
There were a few things that were just kind of left up in the air, but it’s nothing I’ll lose sleep over, so I will forgive and forget.
Plus, there is a cute cat named Hamlet, if a book has a cat as a side character, I’m almost guaranteed to like it.
I had no one, but Hamlet. Who hated me with the fire of a thousand suns.
Losing It is a short book so it’s worth giving it a shot. I think you will find the characters funny and engaging, even if you don’t like the plot.
