Description

The Runaway New York Times and USA Today Bestseller! 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 theater professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about eight hours earlier. . . .show more

Our customer reviews

Bliss and Garrick, Garrick and Bliss. Despite the hooker name, I'd love to be Bliss. Not Literally. Not only because of my selfish reasons which, of course, involve the one and only Garrick with his British accent, but also because she's witty, easy to love and can recite entire plays. Oh memory, I shall have thee one day. This was such a lovely, light, contemporary read... There's finally an interesting female lead, a strong one, funny and enjoyable to read about. And she's a virgin (how rare is that?!). Many times I could easily relate to her, especially in this certain scene: "For the rest of the time, I was left alone with my thoughts, which were about as pleasant as the Ebola virus." Yep. I know how that feels. The story revolves around Bliss, while she's trying to get laid, or as she would gracefully say, "making the beast with two backs" (Othello reference). Willing to get rid of the virgin status but if possible, without the sex, she finds Garrick and that's where the story starts getting reallly interesting. "Yeah, well, there are a lot of things I've never done." He quirked one eyebrow. "Like what?" "Well..." I swear my heartbeat sounded like stu-pid, stu-pid, stu-pid as it pounded in my ears. Of course, the first time she's a bit freaked out and she leaves him the second things start getting way too heated and she invents a she-cat Hamlet, that's gray just to get away. Oh well. After this, Garrick is basically everywhere and I mean EVERYWHERE. Apparently, he lives quite close to her, he's her new teacher in college, he's out for coffee in the same place as her. Car breaks? GARRICK'S HERE, NOTHING TO WORRY. Uhm, stalker much? I know that the story is about them, but come on, they can exist just as well, without them meeting every. single. time. And while I absolutely love him, there were times I was more like NO. "Sometimes you react... like, well, how I want you to react" and that one time he thought of Bliss as property to be owned. Not cool. When Bliss got sick, it was like the story went on a whole different level. The way it was handled... beautiful, poetic even and I looked at Bliss and Garrick's relationship in an entirely different light. "It was the sun, and it held me in its arms, called me by name, touched me from forehead to toes. I fell asleep cradled in the sky in the arms of a star." "There was a galaxy inside of me - complex and infinite and miraculous and fragile. And at the center was my sun." Now, don't think she refers to him as her sun all the time (she's not Daenerys from Game of Thrones and Garrick is not her sun and stars) and it would normally be cheesy, but it certainly is not. It somehow fits the story, it brings a mature note to it. All in all, I do recommend this, you'll love the writing, the characters, the forbidden love... what's not to like? Favorite quotes "He was flabbergasted. That was the best word. His flabber had been thoroughly gasted." "There was a galaxy inside of me - complex and infinite and miraculous and fragile. And at the center was my sun." Rating Characters: 4/5 Loved the main characters, didn't really connect with the others. Romance: 5/5 HOT HOT HOT!! Pacing/Length: 5/5 Nothing felt rushed, nothing felt slow paced, the story was told exactly the right way. Cover: 5/5 There are actually a few cover versions and the guy keeps changing... Uhm, can ALL those guys be Garrick? YES PLEASE? Plot: 4.5/5 Amazingly good (I really didn't expect it).show more

This last month I decided I wanted to try New Adult books because, honestly, I love steamy scenes and most of the time in YA there's not too much of that. In this case what hooked me was the cover. I mean, look at it, the guy is so freaking hot/cute/breathtaking! And those lips?! I could stare at them all day long... and then do unspeakable things to- well, you get the picture. As for the girl... the only thing I'm going to say is WOW. She looks like she is enjoying herself way too much. And that is definitely something good ;) Then I read the summary -when I finally could stop staring at the cover- and I knew I had to read it. I'm so glad I did! This is a light, fun, easy read which is exactly what I needed. Everything begins with Bliss wanting to lose her virginity -she is twenty something- and asking her best friend, Kelsey, to help her get the courage she needs. She wanted this but was terrified nonetheless, specially because she liked to be in control always and sex, well, sex is all about no thinking and letting yourself go. And she sucked at that so much! So off they went, looking for a guy hot enough to ignite her loins. And, oh boy, did she found him... Sitting in a bar, with a Shakespeare's book in hand, the most gorgeous guy Bliss had ever seen. And when she finally spoke to him she almost combusted right there. You see, Garrick -that's the hot guy's name- was British. And I don't know about you, but for me British accent is insanely hot. And Bliss thought exactly the same thing ;) Finally she found herself taking Garrick to her place to do... well, to do him actually. But this is where everything goes to heck. Bliss begins to over think everything, like what if she sucks at sex, what if she pukes in front of him, or what if she pukes during sex?! Like I said, she lost her mind in a second and then just went bananas. With a very, very, awkward and lame excuse she bolts from her place and leaves him in her bed, naked and ready. But of course, Garrick came back to her life the very next day. As one of her drama teachers. What? Didn't I mention before that Bliss was a theatre student? Yep, she is. And we all know how much they love to overreact and exaggerate. Some people say there's a love triangle here, but it's not true. Although Cade (one of Bliss best friends) likes her she is 100% committed to Garrick so no worries here. The thing is, Cade is such a nice guy that you will actually feel bad for him, because we all know how hard it is to love and not be loved by the one we want. Ultimately, I think he deserves a happy ending too. As a bottom line all I'm going to say is: if you want a funny, crazy, easy and light read that will make you giggle and laugh this is your book. At times you will even find yourself wanting to punch or smack Bliss because she can't stop overthinking everything! But that is part of her personality so chances are you will accept her or hate her. I liked her a lot because is difficult not to like someone who is nice and caring. And Garrick will make you swoon. Over and over again. You will love it.show more
