All Pepper needs is a little experience. Ever since she was a teenager, she has been in love with Hunter, the brother of her best friend, Lila, but he thinks of her as merely a good friend. When Pepper discovers that Hunter has just broken up with his longtime girlfriend, she realizes that if she wants to hook up with Hunter, it is now or never. The problem is that Pepper has kissed exactly one boy in her entire life. Of course her friends have a solution to her problem: Reece, a hottie bartender at Mulvaney’s, whose romantic reputation is legendary. All Pepper needs to do is get Reece to give her a few lessons in seduction, and she can apply what she learns to finally land Hunter. At least that is the plan until Pepper discovers that she might be falling for her new teacher.

Pepper was a fun perspective to read from. Pepper is very inexperienced and shy and really has no clue when it comes to relationships and guys. She has been in love with Hunter forever and is determined to get him. She decides the best way to do this is by gaining experience. This is how she ends up in a pseudo-relationship with Reece.
Reece is smoking hot and he made me think all the dirty thoughts. I loved everything about him. He may look like a bad boy through and through, but he is a wonderful guy. He has a heart of gold and any girl would be lucky to find a guy like Reece. Reece has his demons and they have shaped him, but Pepper has her demons too. These two have more in common than either one of them could have guessed.
Pepper and Reece play a dangerous game with each other that you just know is bound to end in disaster. Pepper has convinced herself for so long that Hunter is all she wants, that you can completely understand why she can’t let him go. It’s all she has known forever and to have someone come in and make her question that scares her. So naturally she ignores it. She ignores all the signs that Reece may be more into this relationship than she thinks and just keeps her blinders on.
This story is so beautiful and I loved watching Pepper and Reece fall for each other. I loved watching Pepper grow and learn to trust and open up. I loved watching Reece fall for a girl despite the doubts he has about himself. Their relationship is full of angst and heartache but it’s also full of some very sweet and some incredibly steamy moments. It was very very hot. It’s a steamy read but it’s not over the top or tacky in any way. I loved how awkward Pepper was at times and how Reece loved that about her. She was just herself and she learned to love being herself.
Foreplay is a fantastic read and one New Adult fans must pick up. You will seriously regret it if you skip this one. So don’t skip it, go out and read it as soon as possible!
I was really surprised that I enjoyed Wild (Ivy Chronicles #3) by Sophie Jordan. So much so that I read the whole series! I really loved the story of the three best friends: Pepper, Emerson and Georgia!
Foreplay, focuses on Pepper's love story to bar tender/owner Reece. When shy Pepper finds out that the love of her life, her best friend's brother breaks up with his serious girlfriend, she sees it as a sign! She had been in love with Hunter since she was in high school and now want him all to himself. But wait! She has no experience in the flirting department. Enter a hot bartender from Mulvaney's rumored to be skilled and free of his uhmm favors. When Pepper sees him in the bar, she is stunned and is attracted to the hottie bartender and immediately practices her wiles on him. Incidentally, he is the hottie who helped her with her car when it stalled after her babysitting gig one night.
When Reece agrees to tutor Pepper with foreplay (and more), Pepper starts to fall but she still can't let go of her love for Hunter, especially now that Hunter has started to notice her.
I love the sparks between Reece and Pepper. Reece is the perfect badboy/goodboy/experienced older man (not so older though) for Pepper and naturally, they can't keep their hands off of each other. I also loved that despite having a bad boy image, Reece is responsible, which I really liked.
Foreplay was a quick and steamy read for me and I enjoyed it. I was a little annoyed at Pepper a few times but she did redeem herself in the end (she saves a puppy from a fire and almost gets killed in the process).
Sophie Jordan has become a go to crossover author. I love her historicals and now her new adult books! I have also read her young adult Firelight series.
Pepper is that quiet girl that is easily overlooked. She has little confidence and has no idea what she truly wants with one exception: Hunter. Hunter is her best friend’s brother and growing up around his and his happy family makes her want to be a part of it too. With her friends on board and Hunter newly single they devise a plan to make Pepper noticeable. Her college roommates hear rumors of a Hot Bartender that can show a girl a good time. This is who they choose to teach Pepper how to entice and know the true meaning of Foreplay.
After meeting Reese they are all blown away at how truly gorgeous he is. Peppers is shocked when Reese agrees to help her out with lesions but doesn’t count on the connection they have messing with her plans. When the lesions pay off and Hunter does ask her out, Pepper has some more missions to make. This image of the perfect family is within her grasp but her head and her heart are at war… Find out who she ends up with in the end.
