Book Description:

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…

My Review:

Let’s start with the cover. Absolutely hate it. It’s awful. The girl isn’t too bad but the guy looks like a snake. Sorry, male model but I’m sure you’re a lovely person.

Of course, looks aren’t everything with novels.

Even though this book sounds SO corny and SO predictable and YES we’ve all read books like this before…I really did enjoy it. Bliss Edwards is a twenty something girl who wants to lose her virginity. Fair enough! Her friend takes her out to a club and she meets this cute BRITISH GUY!

American ladies…not every British guy sounds like Charlie McDonnell. Don’t get your hopes up!

Bliss decides to take Garrick home and that HE shall be the ONE…to take her virginity. So they go back to Bliss’s place and disaster follows! So much AWKWARD!

The next morning, Bliss steps in Drama class and who should show up as their professor? Yep! Garrick!

Although Garrick is a teacher, he’s only just out of University himself and is a few years older than Bliss. It isn’t a HUGE difference…don’t go wetting yourself. [If you have bladder troubles…that was in considerate of me. My apologies to you.]

Overall, I laughed at the awkwardness of poor Bliss and some parts were funny. But it was predictable and at times…tedious. I probably wouldn’t read it again BUT having said that, I AM looking forward to reading Faking It! I requested it on NetGalley and have just been approved to read it! Another book for the TBR 🙂

[Thanks to NetGalley and Ebury for gifting me an eARC copy of this book in return for an honest review.]
