Tease by Sophie Jordan

Release date: May 27, 2014
Publisher: William Morrow
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Series: The Ivy Chronicles #2

A young college woman gets schooled in life, sex, and love in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan's sizzling New Adult romance series--where three Ivy League suite-mates testing their boundaries as they seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.

A born flirt and good-time party girl, Emerson has never had a problem finding a willing guy. She's always chosen her hook-ups carefully, and she's never broken her three cardinal rules:

Never let them see the real you.

Never fall in love.

Always leave them begging for more.

Then comes Shaw. A hotty from the wrong side of the tracks, he's immune to her flirtatious banter and come-hither smile. After rescuing her from a disastrous night at a biker bar, he doesn't even try to take her to bed--he calls her a tease and sends her home instead. Unable to resist a challenge, or forget the sexy dark-eyed bad-boy biker, she vows to bring him to his knees.

But instead of making Shaw beg, she finds herself craving him. For the first time in her life, she's throwing out her rulebook. Suddenly, she's the one panting for a guy she can't control. A guy who won't settle for anything less than the real Emerson, who forces her to do things she's never imagined, including facing a past she thought she'd buried.

A guy who just might leave her wanting more . . .


My Rating: 4.5 Roses

An emotional, intense, and very enjoyable read, Tease was a fantastic New Adult romance. I really liked this book. I loved the first book in this series, and book 2 didn't disappoint.

The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride (Millworth Manor, #3)
Release date: April 29, 2014
Publisher: Zebra
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: Millworth Manor #3

The bride and groom cordially request the presence of…

The bride’s sister, Delilah, the very proper widowed Lady Hargate, and Samuel Russell, the groom’s friend, a very eligible, slightly improper bachelor, at their upcoming wedding.

Lady Hargate and Mr. Russell, previously acquainted during one unforgettable night in New York City when caution—and clothing—were thrown to the wind will choose to pretend they have never met before.

The lady plans to avoid love and its complications at all costs. The gentleman intends to change her mind.

Guests are invited to enjoy the many diversions of Millworth Manor—delightful grounds, lavish drawing rooms, secluded corners—and the chance to discover that one night may have been only the beginning…


My Rating: 1.5 Roses

Unfortunately, I didn't like The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride. And, honestly, it was only because of one thing: Delilah. If it hadn't been for her, I could have easily liked this book but, as it turned out, I didn't.
