What's the odds that you would leave a hot guy in your bed and run into him in class just 8 hours later,
as your tutor......
Lovin Cora Carmack great story can't wait for more.
A MUST read
I've read a few books covering the whole student/teacher forbidden love and this is defiantly on par with `When summer ends' which is another fab story covering this tricky subject. I was completely drawn into the story and instantly fell in love with both Bliss and Garrick. The fact that Garrick is British was an added bonus, although, I don't think us Brits call people `love' as much as Garrick does? But hey ho, maybe he's from somewhere a bit posher than me :p
Bliss is a college student in her final months at school but she's also hiding a big secret from her friends...she's still a virgin. She decides it's time to get rid of her v plates and hits a bar with her best friend Kelsey on a man hunt...cue Garrick! After an instant attraction and a few drinks for dutch courage, Bliss goes home with him. Sparks fly between them but before anything else can happen, Bliss bottles it and makes a quick exit after using some lame excuse about her sick cat (be prepared for a laugh out loud moment). The next morning Bliss just wants to forget the whole thing and clings onto the hope that she'll never bump into the gorgeous guy she left in her bed the night before! Little does she know that this is only just the beginning...the next day at school during her theatre class, in walks Garrick as her new teacher! AHHHH!
Before discovering `Losing it' I'd never come across anything by Cora Carmack but I will defiantly be looking out for other books by her. I know she's continued this series but focusing on other characters from the book and I will be purchasing my next instalment very soon! I would defiantly recommend this book - go by it now :)
I received this book free via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I don't gush and give false praise - I don't believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book.
I'm a sucker for a good contemporary romance, and at the moment there's any number featuring US schools - its taken me a while to work out the system but far as I can make out here in UK we have school til 16, college 16-18 and University after that but in the US books the kids of 20 are still described as at "school" not Uni. (and can't drink til 21!) This time its 20 year old Bliss in her final year at drama school/uni and she thinks her slightly drunken almost one night stand is another student. Imagine her shock in class later that week to discover he's her new tutor!
All the best romances (for me ) need a few hiccups and the student/tutor conundrum does it well here. There's only a short while to go til Bliss graduates but she first needs to sort what happened (or didn't as the case went...) with delicious tutor Garrick. They agree to pass it off as one of those things but there's a real connection between them and sexual tension and events conspire to throw them together. Bliss and the story of Hamlet the cat was brilliant. There were some really amusing parts in the novel - Him Indoors kept saying "what are you grinning at?" but its hard to describe to someone whose not reading/read the book why you find incidents amusing, often is a compilation of occurrences that make that final one so funny.
Anyway - a good strong story with a HEA ( I love those!) and one I really enjoyed BUT though it was a great book I didn't get enough angst and total highs to make it a five star read. Its a strong three and a half to four star, but I need the whole gamut of emotions from gleefully happy to tears (mine) and though I got the happies there wasn't enough tears (actually none - some sad parts but I must have become hardened as they didn't make me cry) to contrast...I need the whole balance for a five star re reader/keepers list - this is a one off reading book for me. The potential was there with a great story line that was believable and Bliss and Garrick both felt real to me but I needed more jealousy, more problem and more deep emotions. The beginnings of a one sided love touch with her best male friend Cade was good but could have been tougher and more emotional for instance, and more jealousy from Garrick. Alos where she overhears a conversation - I thought that was going to create a stronger reaction but it sort of fizzled out - a missed chance IMO - great set up line but tailed off too soon.
I've not read any of Cora's work before but would happily seek it out again to see if this story is perhaps one of her lighter ones and there's maybe more emotion in her others - the writing style is certainly strong and she's talented but just a bit stronger in the ups and downs would have suited me better. But maybe that's just me, and you want something sweeter and lighter - not everyone has the same taste, it'd be a bland world if we did, and reading is very subjective to personal taste.
I guess this type of story is ideal train reading where you want entertainment and escapism without the embarrassment of the tears : )
Its reasonably priced at £2.84 for 288 pages, par with many others around but if Cora could just have expanded it a bit for more angst contrast then the highs would seem higher and it'd be five star for me - as it is its 3.5- 4 stars.
I've never read any of Belinda's books before but love both paranormal romance and erotica. This is gay (m/m) romance which I feel is often very touching, and heartbreaking. If you're offended at work like this don't read it - but you'll miss out on a good romance. Its in the LGBT Shape-shifter/Vampire Paranormal Genre, and please take note of the publishers warning "contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Bondage, domination, male/male sexual practices, violence." I hate reading reviews where people complain about content when its clearly labelled beforehand....
The description covers the storyline pretty well so I won't repeat that but say why I enjoyed this story. Firstly the characters - well written and feel real, and I was able to empathise with the predicament both Blacque and Bleu found themselves in. It was written in a way that the reader could look at the problem themselves and feel the dilemma they were in. Its one that must face many gay people and in the world of fantasy some writers create a world where its accepted and others where especially werewolves males are supposed to be very heterosexual, and anything less is considered weakness. An important part of his Pack, this is the position Blacque found himself in, with his father the Alpha of the pack wanting him to sire the next generation... A word about Those Names though... Blacque and Bleu just sound so twee and I feel they let the story down. Reminds me of why I've never read another series where the characters have what I feel are "twee" names - Rhage, Vishous, Phury, so cheesy I just can't yet bring myself to read the books and looking at reviews others have found the same. Its a shame as readers can miss out on good stories as with this one ( and with the BDB being such a popular series as I've probably missed out on that) authors really need to look at both sides when considering names : ) they can be memorable - but in the wrong way!
The story itself is solid, not too complicated but clearly defined and with a number of interrelated plots. So many erotic romance books use the story as simply a vehicle to tie together myriad sex scenes - I read one like that yesterday and TBH its boring. Belinda does more with keeping the undoubtedly explicit sex to its proper place within the framework of a good story. The other pack members are interesting too and I'd like to read more from this grouping - I feel Belinda has created a set of characters that work well together and could prove an interesting series ( note to self - look to see if she has done just that : ) The whole town of Arcada has a contingent of mystical people that deserve to be heard more of and are solid enough to carry further novels.
Its priced at £4.48 for 258 pages so not the longest of novels for the price but as Belinda is a well established author I guess her works command a higher price. Its well edited too with few spelling or grammar errors and a book I would enjoy reading again at a later date. Its not a strong enough story to make it to my five star rating but it a well deserved 4 stars.
LOVED IT and will definitely be looking for more books from this author - Cora please just make them a little longer next time to prolong my enjoyment!
