Love. Romance. Sex. There’s a first time for everything...

As far as Bliss Edwards can tell, she’s the last virgin standing, certainly amongst her friends. And she’s determined to deal with the ‘problem’ as quickly and simply as possible.

But her plan for a no-strings one night stand turns out to be anything but simple. Especially when she arrives for her first class and recognises her hot new British professor.
She'd left him naked in her bed just 8 hours earlier...

I had seen this around everywhere when it first came out but I never got around to getting it until I saw it on Netgalley so I jumped at the chance to review and I'm glad I did as it was amazing!

I love that the cover is simple and I do prefer the male model in this one than the original as he looks more like Garrick than the original one did.

I had a feeling that I was going to enjoy this book and in a way I was wrong as I adored it and now I know why everyone raves about it. It was such a fun read but some points broke my heart a little bit. There was instant chemistry between Garrick and Bliss which I enjoyed but I also enjoyed the way in which it grew to more than that even if they couldn't be together I wanted them to. It was so easy to get carried away this book as it has everything you need in a good contemporary romance and I just didn't want to put it down but when I had I just kept thinking about what was going to happen next. The epilogue for Losing It was amazing I just loved how it came to an end it was perfect.

The characters in this book made it easy to love the book as they where fantastic. Bliss did a lot of over thinking but that made for some hilarious scenes. She really did seem more like a real person than most other characters I have ever read which was a great change. Garrick was amazing and I loved him from the moment we met him as he was funny but he had such a sweet side to him it was hard not to fall for him. There was also some other great side character that I also loved maybe not as much as Garrick. Cade was such a sweet character and I did feel sorry for him and I would love to see him have his own book just so I know that he's ok.

Overall I should have read this book sooner as it was amazing well worth the wait though!
