Sick of being the only virgin among her friends, Bliss Edwards 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.
Ok so this book definitely wasn’t a work of fiction, but it was so cute it was hard not to love.
I thought it was interesting that she was studying to be an actress. Often in romance books following a college student, the main character is always (like 9 times out of 10) studying Literature or something and is obsessed with all of the classics like Pride and Prejudice. So it was a really nice change. And also it kind of made me more motivated to go to class, I’m not sure why but whenever I read books where the main character is doing unit work it makes me want to do my work. Crazy!!
This was a really short book (hence my short review), and very easy to read. I feel like it was rushed a bit because of the fact it was so short, and there was a bit of “insta-love” in there which always annoys me but this kind of made sense the way they did it.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Bliss was such a funny character and Garrick was just so nice and I’m not going to say too much about what I think about that because my parents read this. So "that’s all I have to say about that."
The thing that brought my rating down was the way it was written. I think that some of the wording in the book was confusing. Often I would read a sentence and I would think it was wrong, but it wasn’t it just wasn’t structured properly. I know I’m not one to talk considering I always have mistakes in my reviews, mainly because I don’t like editing and reading things I’ve written, but these authors have publishers and editors who fix it for them so there. So edit your work kids!
Oh another thing that brought down my rating was the fact it was like every other romance out there. I don’t mean the whole student/professor thing (btw he wasn’t an old professor) but the whole, they get together early on in the book, then something insignificant happens that causes them to break up and then they spend like 3-5 chapters wallowing until something happens and they realise they couldn’t live without each other. Like seriously, that’s been done before, can authors not think of another way to write a romance book? It’s like they all have a template and they just fill in the blanks!
From all of my ranting you would think I gave this book a crap rating but it’s pretty good to be honest. I would definitely recommend (if you can put aside the fact that it’s just a general romance book with a different setting).
Book: 8/10 (see my rating scale)
Format: eBook, 189 pages
Publisher: Harper Collins
For fans of: Slammed by Colleen Hoover (for once I can actually vouch for this as I've read it, and it is very similar in that teacher/student thing going on)
(I’ll be posting another review on Goodreads)
