SYNOPSIS

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 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. BEWARE, POSSIBLE SPOILERS.

So, this isn’t the stuff I usually read. Oh, what am I kidding, I eat this stuff up.   I needed something lightheaded and amusing, and this seemed right up that alley. There’s not much to describe, since the summary pretty much gives you the gist of everything. There’s no ohmygod relevations where suddenly this becomes a psycho-stalker and so-so needs to be saved because time is running out and we skip merrily into the sunset and have 4.5 kids and a white picket fence after loads of hot sex. No insane world building, no supernatural, just fluff. There were some minor things that irritated m, but lets start with what I liked.

I didn’t care much about goody-good two-shoes Bliss, but Garrick?

Just kidding.  Spoiler: No, I’m not.

“Sex.
I was going to have sex.
With a boy.
A hot boy.
A hot BRITISH boy.
Or maybe I was going to throw up.
What if I threw up on the hot British boy?
What if I threw up on the hot British boy DURING SEX?”

That’s what I loved. Garrick, and that quote. Because that quote would be me in a similar situation, focusing on the BRITISH boy. I am a sucker for accents, what girl isn’t?

Cons, however, was the relationship between Garrick and Bliss. After their almost-but-didnt-happen one night stand, Bliss learns he is her theatre professor, so they couldn’t have any sort of relationship. But they went off/on constantly waging between their desires and the fact that it was wrong given their student/teacher dilemma. So there were short periods they fell victim and shared stolen kisses and whatnot, but nothing substantial, until near the end when they hooked up for the final time and suddenly I love yous were exchanged?

I admit, after that bomb dropped I started getting uninterested, and flipped through the mostly-unnecessary fluff of the final chapter with a big eye roll. I really dislike insta-love, and even though it took the entire book for that to drop, it still felt instantaneous given their brief moments alone.

Another – how Bliss was described as awkward. Does the author know what awkward means? Prime example, me. Bliss goes to school, goes to clubs, hangs out with friends, etc. Certainly not awkward. Maybe there was a moment in the beginning when she was trying to get out of the one night stand situation she mentioned needing to pick up her cat, but that felt more like a panic-first-thing-comes-to-mind thing.

All-in-all, if you like fluffy and mildly sexy books, this is for you.
