I can honestly say that this book has been on my TBR list since the second I flipped the last page of Foreplay, book #1 in Sophie Jordan's amazing series the Ivy Chronicles. I never expected to have an author I primarily viewed as a historical writer, blow my socks off with her talent for writing new adult. Once I got my hands on this book, I immediately stopped what I was doing and started reading, I never got up, I inhaled all 320 pages in one sitting.
We met Emerson in Foreplay as the lively roommate and friend. The lead into this story was perfect. Emerson and Shaw have chemistry from the start, and the initial impression of disinterest he shows toward Emerson after rescuing her from a brawl in a biker bar, drew me in.. hook, line and sinker. This book is full of all the elements that make for the perfect new adult read, the chemistry, the tension, anticipation and eventually the fireworks. The characters from the previous book are integrated nicely and like the first of this series left me eagerly anticipating Wild, Book #3- set for release in November of this year.
Tease is part of the Ivy Chronicles series, but the story can stand alone. I liked reading it after Foreplay, because in the books I really love, I find it nice to revisit and get more story from characters you already like and that was certainly the case here. I gave Tease- 5 Stars and a standing ovation. This book is on my favorites shelf and once again Sophie Jordan proves she is a triple-threat- an author that can write, historical, new adult and young adult... wait she also writes paranormal- she is unstoppable!
Didn't expect to enjoy this book, but I did! I read the first book by SJ in the Ivy Chronicles Series and really liked it as well. The story and characters kept me engaged, and it was believable. I didn't think I would like college age books, but I was pleasantly surprised with the romance and the sexy scenes. I will definitely read more from this author.
OMG I loved it. Emerson reminded me of myself when I was in college and I was like oh wow I did that. But she is a great character and I was actually surprised by one of her secrets. Can't wait to read Wild, which is Georgia's story.
I just wanted to take the time to thank Sophie Jordan for giving us a third of the story free. It was great to check out what I was getting into before actually purchasing anything. And yes, I did go an purchase the full story after reading this. I recommend you do the same ;) Happy reading! -Anna Marie
