{Review} Foreplay by Sophie Jordan

Foreplay by Sophie Jordan
(The Ivy Chronicles #1)

Publication Date: 5 November 2013
Genre: New Adult
Page Count: 320


Before she goes after the life she’s always wanted, she’s about to find the one she needs. 

Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend’s brother, Hunter, for like ever. He’s the key to everything she’s always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she’s kissed exactly one guy, she has just the plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom—take a few pointers from someone who knows what he’s doing.

Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he’s beyond gorgeous, but he’s also dangerous, deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as lessons in attraction are turning both their worlds around, and showing just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what’s real…

RATING: 4 out of 5 Stars

What I Felt
Foreplay follow the journey of an inexperienced girl trying to get the attention of her best friend's brother by getting some tips on the subject matter. While the story is somewhat predictable, I find myself enjoy reading Pepper's journey (cute name by the way) with her bad boy looking coach Reece. While Reece knew that this was all just for Pepper's lesson to catch Hunter's attention, the attraction between them is there. Will Pepper choose Hunter or Reece?

Overall, Foreplay is such a sweet read even though I felt that the climax of the whole story was a little rushed. The ending's good though and I'm satisfied with it. This is one well-written new adult book!
