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 the perfect 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 and deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as a lesson in attraction is turning both their worlds upside down, and showing them just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what's real. . . .
I was intrigued by the blurb, and the cover is SEXY as HELL. Both enticed me to read Foreplay even though I rarely read New Adult. Sophie Jordan took a well-worn concept and revitalized it with great characters; I loved the emotionally scarred Reece. Reece will steal your heart with his charm (and his dirty talk). Pepper character grows a lot over the course of the book. The author did an amazing job of pulling this reader into her struggle to decide between Hunter and Reece. I look forward to reading the next installment in the Ivy Chronicles.
