Rating: ★★★★☆

Summary from 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…

If you are like me and love the bad boy meets goodie two shoe girl and they fall in love then this is definitely the book for you!  It was totally swoon-worthy and Sophie Jordan has me fanning myself as things heated up.

Pepper is one of those straight and narrow girls who follow all the rules and has her ideas of what her perfect future would be like. She has even picked out the perfect husband in the form of her best friend’s older brother, Hunter.  He’s handsome, sweet and comes packaged along with the perfect family that she would love to be a part of.  Her crush on Hunter is so immature that I had to shake my head over Pepper’s behavior but as we learn more about Pepper’s background I began to get why Hunter and marrying into his family was so important to her.

I adore Reece and wish I could have him as my tutor in foreplay.  Talk about hot and being the man of your dreams.  I’ll admit the tattoos first grabbed my attention but he is smart, sweet and other than having a father from hell I loved everything about him.

Pepper’s roommates are also great characters and I am hoping the future books are going to be their stories.  I’ll definitely be picking up the next book in the series!

About Sophie Jordan

Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature – teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years teaching high school students to love Antigone, Sophie resigned with the birth of her first child and decided it was time to pursue the long-held dream of writing.

In less than three years, her first book, Once Upon A Wedding Night, a 2006 Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Nominee for Best First Historical, hit book shelves. Her second novel, Too Wicked To Tame, released in March 2007 with a bang, landing on the USA Today Bestseller’s List.
