My Swoon for this week comes from

Losing It

Cora Carmack

First - The Blurb:

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...

Second - My Swoon:

I'd barely processed his words before he'd pulled me up from the chair and covered my mouth with his own. His scent overwhelmed me--- citrus and leather and something else that made my mouth water. I was almost too shocked to react. I was acutely aware of the fact that he was kissing me in the middle of a bar, until he nipped at my bottom lip. Then I forgot about everything but him. My whole body shuddered, and my heart dropped toward my stomach like the force of gravity had doubled. My head was swimming, but I didn't care.

I opened my mouth, and immediately his tongue swept in, taking control. My hands clutched at his back, and in response, he pulled me closer. His kiss was slow and then fast, tender then punishing. We were pressed together so tightly that I could feel every plane of his body, but still I wanted to be closer. His hand slid up the back of my shirt---hot fingers pressed into my already overheated flesh. A moan escaped my mouth at the intimate contact.

Third - My Thoughts:

After reading several tempting teasers and the blurb of  Losing It, I knew this was a book I had to read. And I'm not sorry that I did. It was great!

Bliss is really easy to relate to. She's quirky, fun and a little freaky. Garrick is the sexy hot professor with whom she becomes enthralled. Although they both recognize that they should not be together while she is his student, the chemistry between them makes it difficult for them to ignore each other.

Bliss has two best friends, Kelsey and Cade. Cade has hidden feelings for Bliss, which when revealed, cause complications. I liked both Garrick and Cade, and at times, it was hard for me to decide which of them I wanted Bliss to end up with.

Cora writes well making it easy to follow the story.
I'm looking forward to reading Faking It (Book #2).

My Rating: 5 out of 5
