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 really liked this book! I loved Sophie Jordan's Firelight serie and I've read some of her adult books as well. I like her writing. So, ofcourse I was really intrigued by her New Adult book Foreplay. And lets admit it, the title rocks.

Pepper was a good main character. She is one of those good girls, you know? She's been in love with her best friend's brother for ages. She was just waiting for him to notice her. And then she came up with a plan. She will find a guy to teach her foreplay. Because then she will be more experienced and getting Hunter will get easier. The plan was good I must say. But, she didn't take into consideration the hot bartender that she picked as her teacher. 

Reece turns out not to be such a player as she first thought. He is responsible, nice, loyal, very hot and lets put it straight, a good guy. So, ofcourse things get complicated. 

Pepper is filled with mixed emotions. She is torn between what she always thought she needed and what she actually wants and needs. And with all that, she is hunted by the demons of her past. Intriguing. This book was good. It was fairly easy to understand the choices that Pepper's made. Considering everything she's been through.. But our Reece is fierce and doesn't give up easily.

Foreplay is a great New Adult story. I enjoyed it immensely while reading. The plot wasn't really predictable and the characters were well built and with a lot of background. I liked that. So, if you are searching for a really good New Adult contemporary romance, filled with struggle, hopes, hot scenes, determination and some interesting twists, then Foreplay is the perfect book for you!

I love Sophie's YA books, but because of my NA reading slump I've been avoiding this one. It's good to know that the characters are well-built and that the plot is actually unpredictable. That's rare in NA. I will have to read this one. Great review, Nea :)

Considering that I'm in a NA reading phase - this one is definitely going on the top of my TBR shelf.
I'm glad it was that good. Great review, Nea.

I bought this book a while back, I'm a fan of Sophie Jordan from her YA series. Sounds like I'd love Reece. I've heard Pepper is a bit annoying so I guess that's sort of held me back. Great review, Nea! :)
