Foreplay by Sophie Jordan

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…

Release Date: November 5th, 2013

 Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.
A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.
In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller's List.

OH MY!! I am still reeling from this one.  I literally sat down, started this book, and did not get up until I was finished.  I was so immersed in this book that I couldn't tell you anything that was happening in my household during that time.
I was so excited to be able to read Foreplay as an ARC…and knew it was going to be good b/c Sophie Jordan’s YA series, Firelight, is awesome.  But I had no idea it was going to completely enrapture me…I mean, I am so overwhelmed with how phenomenal this book is that I don’t know if I will truly be able to relay all of my emotions to you… But, I am going to try my best….
Sophie Jordan is a brilliantly, talented writer.  Within the pages of this book, she eases you through each detail and moment with such finesse that you can SEE and FEEL everything going on.  Your body is completely taken over…all your senses completely inhibited as you plunge in to the tale laid out in front of you.  And thank goodness for all of that, because as you read and that moment when Pepper meets the HOT, SEXY bartender, Reece…I WAS BREATHLESS!!!  This guy just oozes sex appeal right out from the pages…It was so much that you find yourself falling deeper and deeper in to the chemistry that is exploding between Pepper and Reece.  Licking your lips, waiting for those chance encounters…and yes the planned ones too…OH LORDY!! Have you noticed that I have a new book boyfriend??!!! WHEW!!! *fanning self* Ok…need to get to the heart of the story now….
Obviously the explosive attraction between these two is amazing…but it isn't the full story.  The best thing about Foreplay is it is not your typical boy meets girl…boys tries to wooo girl…Nope..this one is entirely different…AND I LOVED IT!!!!
It was refreshing and enticing…Every moment you are enraptured with what was going on and hoping at all costs it turns out the way you want.  From moments of screaming at Pepper for thinking certain thoughts or chastising her for decisions she made solely based on a haunted past that controlled her.  But, those twists in this captivating tale keep you in knots, desiring that end result of the warm fuzzy, tingly feelings we all so love to have!!!
Foreplay is a slow seduction, tempting you with the alluring words of love, romance, and steamy passion.
