Review ~ Tease by Sophie Jordan

Title: Tease
Author: Sophie Jordan
Series: The Ivy Chronicles #2
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Published: May 27th 2014

What happens when a girl who always calls the shots meets a guy who's too wild for even her?

A born flirt and good-time party girl, Emerson has never had a problem finding a willing guy. She's always chosen her hookups carefully, and she's never broken her three cardinal rules:

Never let them see the real you.
Never fall in love.
Always leave them begging for more.

Then Shaw comes along. A hottie from the wrong side of the tracks, he's immune to her flirtatious banter and come-hither smile. After rescuing her from a disastrous night at a biker bar, he doesn't even try to take her to bed—he calls her a tease and sends her home instead. Unable to resist a challenge, or forget the sexy, dark-eyed, bad-boy biker, she vows to bring him to his knees.

But instead of making Shaw beg, Emerson finds herself craving him. For the first time in her life, she's throwing out her rule book. Suddenly, she's the one panting for a guy she can't control—a guy who won't settle for anything less than the real Emerson and who forces her to do things she's never imagined, including facing a past she thought she'd buried.

A guy who just might leave her wanting more. . . .

Sophie Jordan has done it again! She has bought to life two characters that I enjoyed to read about. Emerson and Shaw are from different backgrounds, with their own share of troubles, but they are so perfect together.

Emerson has a secret in her past that has shaped her to be the girl she portrays to everyone, including her best friends Pepper and Georgia. Shaw could see right past her fa├žade from the very first time he locked eyes with her in a biker bar. When their paths continue to cross, their connection gets even stronger.

I liked seeing these initial sparks even though Emerson kept trying to push Shaw away. She is confused about her past and looks scared to move past it fully. Emerson really is a sweet girl and tries to be all confident but Shaw kept her second guessing herself. Shaw was a hottie, I tell ya! He is straight forward with Emerson and pushes her past her limits! He has struggled with the loss of someone close to him, but is moving on as best as he can.

I really enjoyed this story, although I think Pepper and Reece’s book, Foreplay, is still my favourite. I enjoyed the direction that this story took and seeing the relationship develop at a comfortable pace. In Foreplay, the kink club was mentioned, and in Tease we got to enter the actual club, so I am excited to see where the story goes next in regards to this secret club.

    Kids are finally on school holidays. Hope things aren't too crazy for you.
