I had a lot of fun reading Losing It and was laughing out loud in several places. It sits squarely in the New Adult genre that is now appearing and which I'm beginning to really enjoy.
Bliss was a cute character, tied up with the idea that she must be the only living girl going to college still a virgin. Her various antics while trying to lose her 'V card' were at times funny, sad and pathetic, but I enjoyed the humour. Who knew it was so difficult to lose it! Garrick was a good looking Brit who just happens to fall into a job as a theatre professor, and this was perhaps the only bit I didn't really like - Brits just can't get jobs that easily in the States, or in Canada for that matter. There a little thing called a work visa that is really hard to come by. - but I was able to get over it because the story itself was so good.
The relationship between Garrick and Bliss was full of laughs and one liners and I found Ms Cormack's writing style to be tight and easy to read. Not too over the top and not explicit (that I remember anyway). Sometimes Garrick could be a bit macho for my tastes, but his good points far outweighed his bad. There were no big surprises here, but sometimes it's just fun to sit back and enjoy the read, and that's what I did with Losing It
Would I read more by her? Certainly. Recommended for readers who love light-hearted contemps.
