Foreplay by Sophie Jordan

Series:  The Ivy Chronicles (1#)

Published: November 5th 2013

Publisher: William Morrow

Goodreads: “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’m going to be very straightforward with this. This book is good, honestly. It’s interesting, sexy, sometimes funny and it just keeps you hooked, at least it did to me. Yet, it is not one of those books you just have to tell your friends about and try to convince them to read it. It’s very light, romantic, sensual, something you read very quickly, and something you read when you just want some sexy, romantic, happy-ending treat xD

The main character, Pepper, is very sweet and innocent, who just idealizes that she will have a perfect marriage with her brother’s best friend, Hunter. It annoyed throughout the book, because she just kept, on and on and on about making Hunter fall in love with her , then they would marry and have 2.5 children…. *yawns*

Anyway, since she is a virgin,  her friends take her out at night to hook her up with the bar tender,  the so-called playboy who can teach her the ways of “love-making” (typical, might I add). So she meets the bar tender, major hottie, heart-throb, etc.

After seeing each other for a couple of times, Reece (bar tender’s name, aka Cheese xD), starts “teaching”Pepper foreplay… so Pepper can later apply it to Hunter.

Obviously they fall for each other, but idiot Pepper still insists she must stay with Hunter. Hunter takes a notice on her at last, they start dating, until something tragic happens (not too tragic), Pepper finally sees the light and gets together with Reece.

Seems like a very simple plot, which it is, but I quite liked it. There’s more to it, I don’t want to ruin the book for those who haven’t read it. I know I kind of spoiled the end, but still, it was just too obvious, so I guess I didn’t spoil too much xD

Btw, Pepper is such a stupid name xD

P.S: Yes, I totally used a Delena gif, sorry Stelena fandom!
