Romance Erotica Sensual | New Adult

In FOREPLAY by Sophie Jordan, Pepper has a huge crush on her best friend's brother Hunter. Pepper is tired of being labeled as the nice an innocent. She wants Hunter to see her as more than just a friend. This is where Pepper and her two friends come up with a plan, lessons in foreplay. After a couple of nights at a hot club Pepper sees the perfect guy to give her lessons, Reece. Pepper thinks he is a player and a bad boy and perfect to help her, little does she know that Reece is not the player she thinks. He dangerous, and has a troubled past. Soon Pepper is sucked into Reece's world and soon finds out what lessons in FOREPLAY are.

I really liked FOREPLAY, it was a fun light read that kept me interested. I really loved the character of Reece, I felt like he was perceived as too much of a bad boy and he really wasn't. He was brilliant and was so sweet and unbearably hot. Though on the surface, he looks like a stereotypical bad boy, he was much more than that. Because of his problems with his father, he's very mature and responsible and dedicated to running his bar and taking care of his brother. Not to mention he knew to go after what he wanted. He was perfect and I adored him.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. The story was really enjoyable and there were some surprising secrets, with the pasts that still haunted Pepper and Reece. I can't wait to read more from this series because FOREPLAY was a brilliant start and, if it's any indication of what the rest of the series will be like, then it will fantastic!
