Review by Booklist Reviews

All Pepper needs is a little experience. Ever since she was a teenager, she has been in love with Hunter, the brother of her best friend, Lila, but he thinks of her as merely a good friend. When Pepper discovers that Hunter has just broken up with his longtime girlfriend, she realizes that if she wants to hook up with Hunter, it is now or never. The problem is that Pepper has kissed exactly one boy in her entire life. Of course her friends have a solution to her problem: Reece, a hottie bartender at Mulvaney's, whose romantic reputation is legendary. All Pepper needs to do is get Reece to give her a few lessons in seduction, and she can apply what she learns to finally land Hunter. At least that is the plan until Pepper discovers that she might be falling for her new teacher. A best-selling author of historical romances and the YA Firelight series, Jordan makes her new-adult romance debut with a sexy love story that perfectly captures both the flirtatiously fun and emotionally tormenting aspects of college romances.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Jordan (Hidden) launches a new adult series that delivers plenty of emotional conflict in a conventional finding-love-where-you-least-expect story. Naive, virginal college student Pepper has long been in love with her best friend's brother, Hunter, seeing him as the one man who can give her the cozy traditional home life she craves. When he breaks up with his girlfriend, Pepper wonders how to seize her chance. Her college roommates come up with a plan: get seduction lessons from a sexy bartender, who is also a kissing expert, then use her new skills on Hunter. Pepper did not expect the bartender to be Reece, the man with the "dangerous vibe" who keeps turning up to rescue her from uncomfortable situations. Banter leads to intoxicating foreplay, and insecurities, misconceptions, and past damage create complications. Even as Hunter courts Pepper, Reece tugs at her heart. Some of the plotting is a bit contrived, but the story is saved by strong personalities and Jordan's talent for handling touchy issues with plenty of heart. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (Nov.) [Page ]. Copyright 2013 PWxyz LLC

Review by Publisher Summary 3

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 the perfect 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 and deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as a lesson in attraction is turning both their worlds upside down, and showing them just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what's real. . . .
