Review ~ Foreplay by Sophie Jordan

Title: Foreplay
Author: Sophie Jordan
Series: The Ivy Chronicles #1
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: November 5th 2013





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…

I have been meaning to read Foreplay for a while and I finally picked it up… and I am kicking myself that I hadn’t done it earlier! It is the type of New Adult book I like to read, with the gradual building of a relationship, just enough drama to keep me happy and has characters that a want to know more about.

I really liked Pepper; she is a girl that I could see as my friend. She is smart, has a kind heart and is a little na├»ve. She had a difficult childhood and found it hard to let people in. Her life plan ­­included a guy, who was unavailable, but when circumstances change, she decides to gain some experience – which I snickered about – and she sets her sights on Reece.

I liked Reece right from the first time I met him. Even though he looks a little rough – with his tattoos and piercing – he is a gentleman. Getting to know him throughout this book, how he deals with his work, Pepper and his family, showed how good he was. I could see his feelings developing, but Pepper found it hard to deal with hers.

I love how this story was put together. Sophie Jordan built these characters and made me love them! They both had good souls with troubled childhoods and I liked seeing them step out of their comfort zones. The little twists thrown in weren’t too major, just enough to keep you guessing what would happen next. I really enjoyed this read, and I did it mostly with a smile on my face. I was up late the night I started it, because I couldn’t put it down, I wanted to know what was going on! I devoured the rest the following day and was left excited about the books I have to read next!
