I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Um , is it getting hot in here?
Inexperienced Pepper has been in love with her best friend’s brother for as long as she can remember. Now that he’s finally single, she wants him to notice her. Really notice her. But then what?
Enter Reese, gorgeous and strong, she wants Reese to be her boytoy and teach her foreplay.
But of course, things go horribly wrong. Because Reese seems to be a better match for her, even though he’s just as broken as she is. And all of what Pepper thought she wanted begins to slip away…
First Sophie Jordan and won’t be the last.
Hot, fun and addicting. I read it in one day. Couldn’t put it down. Pepper is innocent, but not annoying or naive. Reese is hard to read, but manly and charming. I mean, it had enough heat to keep the air conditioning on and a great plot. It’s not something that has never been done, but Jordan writes in a way that keeps you wanting more. Sure, it’s predictable, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy every second of it.
Pepper’s friends are a lot of fun and I’m really interested in reading future books in the series. I’m hoping they all get their own stories!
