Review: Foreplay by Sophie Jordan

This book is classified as New Adult.
It is not suitable for ages below 18.

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…

My Thoughts:

I haven't had much luck with Sophie Jordan. I didn't finish Firelight and I had read half of this novel and was planning to stop this midway as well. To be fair , I wasn't about to stop reading this one because of a good reason ,I just didn't feel like reading it anymore but I'm happy I finished reading this book because I really enjoyed it.

Foreplay is a novel that belongs to the upcoming new adult genre.This genre seems to be popping up everywhere and so far it just seems like this genre has adult novel with college going characters.Foreplay doesn't deviate much from the new adult formula .So, if your're looking for a hot new adult novel that follows the tried and tested new adult themes look no further! Actually the issues in this were much lighter than issues I've seen in some other new adult novels so you might enjoy it more because of it.

This book is fun and the characters don't get on your nerves. There were times when you want to smack Pepper(what kind of a name is that? Every time I read it I thought of Pepper Potts) on the head but it didn't become a physical urge , so I consider it a point in her favor.Reese was an amazing character worth swooning over.The side characters were also memorable and if there's a book that tells Logan's story I will get in line for it.(HINT! HINT!)

My main problem with this book has to be the rushed ending.It seemed like the author realized that she had to end it in a certain way in the last moment and tie up the loose ends nicely.This ending just didn't sit well with me. I would probably have given it a better rating if not for this.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and will definitely be keeping an eye out for the sequel Tease.If you're looking for a new new adult novel to devour this one will be right up your alley .

My Rating:




  1. I hadn't paid much attention to Foreplay b/c it does seem good, although fairly typical. I'm glad you liked it, despite the rushed ending.
    Nice review

  2. I actually really enjoyed Firelight but I wasn't so eager to read Foreplay. I mean NA and stuff. I mean it sounds typical and that rushed ending is not helping. I think I'll skip this one. Great review :)

  3. I've never read a book by Sophie Jordan before either, but if I were to start with one of her books I think Foreplay would be it. It sounds like a fun read which I could probably read in one sitting. Also out of all the NA books I've seen out there, it seems quite appealing. I'm glad you were able to enjoy this, despite the rushed ending! Great review! :)

  4. I think I'd rather read a NA with a lighter story than the usual angsty stuff. Unfortunate that the ending is rushed but it does sound like some fun. Great review! :)

  5. Oh, I've heard good things about this one--I'm glad you enjoyed it! I've had pretty good luck with NA titles recently, so I may give this one a try soon. :)
