In Bookish News: TEASE Excerpt

bookishnews_sidebarWilliam Morrow, publisher of Sophie Jordan’s The Ivy Chronicles, has released an excerpt from the second book in the series, TEASE, on their Between the Covers Facebook page. Click HERE to read.

If you haven’t yet read the first book in the series, FOREPLAY, do not despair, as you can definitely read TEASE without having read it.

This is a New Adult series by Author Sophie Jordan. And this sequel is even hotter than the first book. The story is every bit as captivating and the characters are just as exciting to read about. There’s just the added benefit of a little more heat.

TEASE is a book I’ve been dying to read since I finished book one. And I finally got the chance to read it this past weekend and LOVED it. It releases on May 27th, so there’s not much longer to wait. But the FOUR CHAPTER EXCERPT is the perfect bite.

And for those who don’t want to wait until the 27th, it seems there’s going to be a partial release of Chapters 7-14 in eBook format on May 20th at AMAZON for $0.99 and for those who purchase it in parts, Part 3: Chapters 15-The End will be releasing on the book’s release date of May 27th at AMAZON for $1.99. Which leads me to believe that another excerpt of chapters five and six will be revealed….

For those who haven’t yet heard of this awesome series, here’s a little bit of information about TEASE, FOREPLAY and WILD (which releases in November). All are available to order/pre-order at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and the current eBook prices make this series a definite must grab now!

What happens when a girl who always calls the shots meets a guy who’s too wild for even her?

A born flirt and good-time party girl, Emerson has never had a problem finding a willing guy. She’s always chosen her hookups 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 Shaw comes along. A hottie 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, Emerson finds herself craving him. For the first time in her life, she’s throwing out her rule book. 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 and 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. . . .

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…
