I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Ordinarily, I would review each story individually, but this book is so jam packed with sizzling goodness that reviewing 22 different stories would only detract from the overall review. This book delivers *anything* you could want from a collection of sexy short stories.

The overall theme of this collection is that all of these couples are losing their virginity. Sound awkward? Some of them are hilariously awkward. Some of them are

I will be honest I have not finished the book yet. I have four stories left and I am excited for them. I am super stoked for the stories to come. This has to do with the fact that I have not been let down so far! I am an adult and only adults should read this book. I would definitely recommend this book to early twenty somethings because I feel like they could relate!
This book definitely made me blush!!

This book lets you know what happened behind closed doors in some of your favorite author's books. The greatest thing about this book is that each author gives you a snippet about what their book is about and what is happening in the scene before they tell you the dirty deeds ;) This way you can enjoy all the authors even if you're not familiar with all their books. The scenes are short, but amazing. It is not so "adult" that its uncomfortable for those new to na romances. I loved getting to fin ...more

If you like NA/YA stories then this is a fabulous treasure trove for you. The main theme is about people losing their virginity so I recommend this for the mature readers. The twenty two authors give us a behind the scene story of losing it- hence the title.

Although there were quite a few genres in this that I've not read before it's certainly whet my appetite. Talk about variety is the spice of life- some parts of these stories will have you laughing out loud while other parts will have you bl

As a rule, I don't usually rate my own books, but as there are 21 other (amazing!) authors involved in this collection, I'm ALL IN!

Full disclosure, I love sexy anthologies. To be part of one was a dream come true.

This is the type of tantalizing brain escape I love for getting my mind off things - or for entertaining/distracting myself while waiting at appointments. Suddenly three hours flew by. You can't put a price on that. And this is one of the many reasons why I love eReaders -- bystanders h

Losing It is a collection of 22 YA authors who have included excerpts or extended scenes where the heroines have given up their V cards. Most of these scenes are tastefully done and are not extremely explicit; on the other hand, some provide details more suitable for the mature readers. :)

I was really excited to read the excerpt from The Mythology Series by Helen Boswell, and boy, did she deliver!!!!! Micah and Hope Forever!!

when you have a collection to great books all in one it's hard to do a review. Here we have 22 awesome stories of losing it, your virginity, and I for one love smut mushy books, but here we get all kinds, loving sweet, dark and dirty, rough and wet even paranormal and funny. So it's kind of hard to do a review on a great book with 22 stories, these authors did a excellent job and I loved how ever story had its own little de

This compliation of short stories is full of great authors and the characters you have come to love. Each one of the 22 stories is about how the leading couple lose their virginity. Some are funny, some are embarrassing, some down right awkward, but all are sweet and let you see another side of these characters that you usually don't see or they dont go into as much detail in the books. This set is really great for a fun romantic Valentine read.

Something for everybody! (As long as they're not too young.) The book is a collection of ORIGINAL scenes that take place where other books left off. It's an great concept executed superbly. Many subgenres of YA/NA are represented here. Having come to this book by way of Milda Harris's Adventures in Funeral Crashing series, I had particular interest in the Kait and Ethan, and it didn't disappoint.

This book is a great buy and well worth your time.

I don't plan on finishing this entire collection any time soon (I have only read one series from it, so it'd be spoilery). But I did read the scene from S.M. Boyce and it was a great peek back into the Grimoire Saga, with an added level of heat. Was definitely worth grabbing the collection just for that, for me at least.

Losing It is a fun collection of short stories with lots of variety. With a little bit of every genre, paranormal creature and ranging from funny to steamy it has something for everyone. It is also an amazing way to get a little time in with 22 different authors and find a new series you might want to pick up. Definitely a fun collection to pick up right before Valentines Day.

I received an ARC copy of this Box Set in exchange for an honest review.

I will be honest. I am torn. I would give amazing 5 Stars to the Authors that made me go and buy their books right after I finished their short story (they are tagged), but because of the rest I feel like 4 strong stars is more justifying the whole set.

All the short stories give us glance on characters First Times. Some of them are funny, some a bit tragic, some amazingly beautiful and emotional, and some, for me, a bit rush

I bought this anthology strictly for Melissa Haag's Judgement of the Six excerpt. Because that series is JUST THAT GOOD. Was it worth it? INDEED. (and it makes me want to go back and reread the series from the beginning again, so... SCORE!)

A quick and naughty look at Michelle and Emmit's first time. With Emmit in more danger than some of the others because of their lack of consummation (and because he's the son of one of the other Six), Michelle finally lets go of her fear and gets down and dirt

I absolutely love this anthology collection. A lot of people seem to have problems with sex in YA but I don't get it. Sex happens. And we only make it more taboo by not talking about it to teens.

This book is full of sweet first times, steamy scenes, and true blue love.

What I love even more about it, is that the characters are from larger works by each other. I really connected with a few of these characters (and some I already loved like Helen Boswell's). I'm able now, to head over to those book

First things first - I freaking LOVE this concept. I'm not always in the mood for a whole lotta graphic get down and break the bed loving, so I do read YA books in addition to the plethora of other things I read. I wasn't familiar with all of these authors, but I was quite familiar with a few and loved being able to read what went on "when the lights went out" so to speak. I think this is an amazing compilation and is such a great idea, especially to expand on the already present YA side and hel ...more

4 Stars!

If you have read these stories then this is the perfect addition to your collection. It is bonus scenes from some really great books.

My fave was the addition from KA Last! I loved the scene between Josh and Grace!

Each one is a hot little scene of losing innocence. Each one unique to it's own story! Each one is new! There is magic and monsters. There is a lot of panty melting goodness wrapped up in this collection. If you haven't read all the stories but are planning to then this is a gr

Note: I was given a copy of this anthology in exchange for an honest review.

You might think the idea of an adult content anthology based off a bunch of young adult stories is problematic, given the primarily teenage audience of the originals. But given there are a lot of adults (myself included) who read young adult fiction, and that teenagers grow up, it actually works.

There's a huge variety of genres on display here within the young adult/new adult age bracket, so there's something for everyon

Losing It – A Collection of V-Cards is such an amazing idea! We get to revisit 22 Young Adult stories where the authors share with us something a little more rated-MA (mature)! Some of these series are completed and this was our first glimpse back into those characters lives! I absolutely loved reading more about my favorite characters and how they ended up “Losing It!” It was even a great insight into some stories I have never read before!

Losing It is a collection of chapters from various authors. Each chapter is either an extension, another point of view or, an addition to a previously written book. Each one of these written chapters is about the loss of virginity of a character and in some cases, the characters.

I admit, the first chapter I read was the chapter written by the author I was most interested in reading because I'd read all of her novels. Her chapter was the couple's first time from the other party's point of view. B

Losing It is an anthology full of all the sexy times that, for obvious reasons, weren’t included in the original YA and NA books from which they come. These stories are sweet and sexy and come from several different genres, including paranormal romance, contemporary romance, etc.

One of the things I enjoyed about Losing It is that not all of the stories are the perfect picture of romance. There are awkward moments just as in any real life “first time” experience. The humor and awkward moments ma

Here you will find some fantastic authors offering sensual scenes with their beloved characters, from the supernatural to the second chances.

This collection of excerpts gives you 22 different flavors of romance, all with varying degrees of heat. You'll find everything from the sweet cusp of first time love, to the spicy, got-to-have-you-now kind of moment, with even a little remorseful first time moments thrown into the mix. There are also several different genres included. Do you like the sweet YA or do you prefer to walk on the wild side of a more Paranormal nature for your romantic encounters? Anyway you want it, you'll get it.

This is a bunch of shorts containing characters from popular YA/NA books losing their virginity or having sex together for the first time. Many of the authors are new to me, so I’m not invested in their characters. I will say that I was surprised by many of them. There are very few that are pretty straight forward. Many had plot twists, like dream sequences, stupid norns, or memories. They range in style from sweet it starts and then suddenly it is over and it’s glossed over. Others are pretty g ...more

What a great collection of stories!!! There was something for everyone. So many genres of stories from your favorite YA/NA authors!

It was really cool to kind of go behind the scenes, sort of speak, with these books. You get to see the story within the story. For me, personally, I have never read a book from some of these authors, but I'm a fan of them now!

I loved everything about this collection! It's like a private peek into the love lives of some of our favorite characters from YA novels. While I haven't read all the stories yet, I can't wait to finish it! I'm only familiar with 3 of the authors in this collection, but some of the stories I've read so far have made me want to read more! I've added to my already humongous TBR pile.

These stories are short, sweet and to the point. But you also get little details that you didn't get from the novel

What a fun and fantastic book!!! Inside this beauty, is 22 "snippets" from some of my favorite authors. Losing It, is about some of our favorite main characters and them... well.... losing IT, their virginity.
These extra scenes, I think of them like little easter eggs, or bonus scenes from the authors.
