p>If there’s one thing Cleo Reynolds knows, it’s that she’s not into Adrian King.
The son of a model with the looks to prove it, the experienced author of her school newspaper’s sex advice column, the cocky playboy with a hint of darkness. That Adrian King.
Nope. Nuh-uh. No way.
The problem is, he’s very into her.
After accidentally flashing him, and slightly-less-accidentally-but-still-totally-unintentionally making out with him in front of the whole class, she expects to be called crazy. Instead, he asks her out.
Cleo’s determined not to end up as another notch on his bedpost. Except she hasn’t done…you know…it in a while. (Read: ever.) And as a girl who pays her tuition by writing all the sex scenes in her roommate’s bestselling romance series, the lack of inspiration has served up a fat slice of writer’s block.
Until her roommate proposes that Cleo and Adrian act out all the steamy scenes in her book.
It’s just research. No feelings involved.
My review :
From the beginning, i totally get the mood of this book: hilarious, sexy, hot and some romantic moments who make me swoon!
This book is told from a dual POV : Cleo and Adrian.
I love this writing style when the characters put all their thoughts and interact with the readers.
Back the story : Cleo is a student who writes sexy scenes for her roomate, a promising erotica writer. Her friend writes the plot, settling, characters and Cleo is in charge of the sex scenes. But she’s got no inspiration and a little pressured by the deadline.
Then comes, sexy, greek hot Adrian. Their “first meeting” is kind of memorable: he saw her topless, living his apartment !
After, they saw each other again and becomes his lab partner; this quote is priceless : « Care to examine my tongue? » ,very smooth!
Cleo seemed so tough outside but her past relationship kind of destructing her confidence when it comes to intimacy.Her private pep talk is so hilarious : “No, Cleo, you are stronger than free tacos and bedroom eyes,..” . She goes to Psychology Club, have no filther, but she’s kind of shy when it comes to hot guys!! This girl rocks!!
Adrian don’t hide and don’t play games.
From this moment, nothing stops Adrian to chase her. Behind all this behavior, we understand how he couldn’t stop to be around her: he’s smitten for years!! (you have to read it because i don’t want to spoil). They’ve met in high school but Cleo didn’t remember him.
They both have some secrets in their sleeves!
I love their interactions and their sudden chemistry. Adrian is such an old soul hidden behind his good looks, friendly sociable personality. Seeing Cleo again after years is a sign to go for what he wants.
He uses every pretext to be with her and it was kind of sweet! Especially the parts where he helped Cleo to write some steamy, sensual, hot sex scenes; and guess what: this guy is very talented and gifted! But Cleo is protecting herself by trying to be friends with him! (it’s not a joke guys!!)
I liked reading this book and this story was very entertaining. I laughed so many times that i lost count!! I want to warn you: don’t read this book in a public place because Adrian can make you blush a lot!!!it’s getting hot in here!
Adrian lessons definitely put you in a good mood! Just to answer Adrian last question at the end of the story :i say YES!!!!
I give 4.5 stars because i wanted more!!!( Adrian of course!! LOL)
