Garrick is a lovable British guy that Bliss is totally in lust with, but there is one problem, he is her new professor. 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. View all 13 comments. Feb 25, Srikari rated it did not like it Recommends it for: A Schizophrenic?

Vir Das: Losing It
View all 18 comments. This is one of those books that stays with you. In fact, I immediately went back to reread a couple parts as soon as I was done last night, at like 3 am, and then again this morning. The main character's name is Bliss. For one, I'm so jealous that I didn't think to name a character that. I LOVE it.

She reacted to things the way I would have. The plot twist with the play and her best friend Cade was genius. I want to go to college with th Ok. I want to go to college with this girl and be her friend. And then Garrick He was seriously sweet, he was British, he got mad, he apologized and then got mad again when she kicked his ego a little bit, he was a typical male who was very interested in certain parts of her anatomy.
I like that he was so normal and had to do a little "I'm Sorry" in the end.
And these two, when they got together to kiss or other things, holy moly. Like really, the air in my living room started to crackle. Those parts were SOO well written that I lost touch with reality for a minute. I loved how she was so open about her virginity in the end and they kind of embraced it. Garrick was such a gentleman. What you get instead is a sweet story of immediate attraction, and chemistry that develops into more.
Have you ever met someone who instantly lit your insides on fire? Well, this is what happens to Bliss when she runs into Garrick. Twenty-two year Bliss is on her last year of college but has yet to go all the way with someone. Well, that and his amazing looks! Unfortunately, or fortunately, depends on how you look at it, after a few hot and steamy make-out sessions, Bliss loses her nerve and flees the apartment. Count me in the fortunately column, because I like characters to have more of a connection!
The next day Bliss finds out that Garrick is actually Mr. Taylor, her new drama teacher and awkward ensues. They both have the same goals with acting and love of drama. I loved this story! I found myself hopelessly in love with Garrick from the moment he enters the story. Such a gentleman and never gives up! He was so open, just saying exactly what he thinks and feels without holding back.
He had it bad for Bliss and he seems like such a sweetheart, I hope Ms. Carmack writes a story for him, so he can get his happy ending too! A friend does not push you into going all the way with some random person to get it over with. Sex is not just some cheap act to throw away at anyone, IMO.
She said she wanted my best line tomorrow after the show, and now I knew what it was going to be. This was a wonderful debut for Cara Carmack. View all 52 comments.

This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell -blog. The premise of this novel is really promising: A chance encounter that leads to a taboo relationship between a theatre student and her professor. Mechanical, might be the best word for it. But in those auditions—you were living in the moment.
You were feeling instead of thinking. I saw shades of emotion in you—strength and vulnerability, desire and disgust, hope and shame—that were quite simply captivating. Bliss is way too comfortable in her small group of friends to classify as socially awkward.
I have this vague impression that Garrick had his sweet moments and that he was patient with Bliss when she was freaking out over nothing, but those possible good guy moments were overshadowed by the lack of chemistry between the couple and the sexist red flags that would have had me and any other woman with a speck common sense run away from him.teuseatupat.cf

Garrick is in the know from the start. Umm, okay? In two words: It sucks. View all 22 comments. Oct 01, Jeaniene Frost rated it it was amazing. I laughed out loud so many times while reading this book. It also gave me "One More Chapter" disease, because despite being tired when I picked it up, I kept reading until I was done.

See a Problem?
Bliss Edwards had a problem. So, with encouragement from her best friend she sets out to find herself a yummy one night stand. No strings. Just hot, fun sex. She does find herself a gorgeous guy, Garrick. That much of the plan goes well. And there he is. Standing at the front of the room. Her new teacher. Let me tell you, the banter, the UST, the hotness was just intense enough to keep the book serious but just light enough to keep my heart fluttering all over the place and have the sudden need to turn the AC on… in October.
I was giggling and grinning and pretty much just all out enjoying myself. Garrick was quite the charmer. Bold, but gentlemanly. He was very easy to fall for.
Oh, and the accent. We got to see it in full swoony detail. I kept turning the page at the of each chapter so worried it would just fade to black but it just kept going.
