Super Special Teaser Tuesday!

So some of you may have already heard about this incredible, sweet and funny New Adult book that has been hugely successful. If not then let me fill you in - Losing It was self-published at the end of 2012 and within a week was a bestseller with lots of publisher interest. Now only a few months later Losing It has been traditionally published in paperback in the US and soon also the UK.

In celebration of the upcoming UK paperback release (28th March) several bloggers are doing something inspired by the Teaser Tuesday meme ran by Should Be Reading and are sharing some of our favourite quotes from the book. I also have a paperback of the UK edition to giveaway.

Check out the UK cover (has the sexiest guy out of all the covers :P) and the synopsis.

Losing It by Cora Carmack

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 her potential sexual partner 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 recognises her new theatre professor. She'd left him naked in her bed about 8 hours earlier....

My Favourite Quotes

Bliss is one of the most awkward people you will ever have the pleasure of reading about which leads to some very funny moments in the book such as ...

"Yes, I can't do this... right now. Because... i have a cat. Yes, i have a cat that i need to, um, get? Take care of! I have to take care of my cat! So... I can't do this." I gestured between us hoping to God that i didn't sound as crazy to him as i sounded to myself. Improbable.

I don't even have a cat!

and ...

 That was it. I was going to have to get a cat.

There is more to the book than just humour, there is also an incredibly sweet romance which leads to some equaly sweet and romantic quotes ...

It was the sun, and it held me in its arms, called me by name, touched me from forehead to toes. I fell asleep cardeled in the sky in the arms of a star.
