Tease (Ivy Chronicles #2) by Sophie Jordan

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. . .

Thank you William Morrow PB for this eARC.

I've already told Sophie that Shaw is mine. I claim him. The rest of y'all can take a number and get in line. Don't worry though, there are cupcakes to keep you busy. ;)

While most girls her age are looking for love and a happily ever after, Emerson is looking for the next no-strings-attached hookup. Past experience has taught her that love is more trouble than it's worth and often results in hurt, so what's the point? Being in control is better, easier, even with the not so nice reputation. Whatever. Emerson doesn't care what people think of her anyway. Not really. 

And then she meets Shaw. (Who is all kinds of Shawtastic!) At first glance, he's everything Emerson doesn't want (tall, dark, and tattooed), everything she thinks she needs to protect herself from (leather jackets, motorcycles, and danger), but Em knows better than anyone that things are not always as the appear. She also knows that Shaw unsettles her in all the right kind of ways which scares her to death.

Shaw has learned that life is too short to play games regardless of how cute the head game player may be. He sees right through Emerson's shield of protection and isn't afraid to call her bluff. (*screams* I LOVE SHAW!) Shaw challenges Em to be real with herself, her friends and especially with him. 

But being real means relinquishing control, something Emerson isn't sure she can do even if deep down it's what she wants. Even if it's exactly what she needs. 

TEASE, is Book Two in The Ivy Chronicles and likes it's predecessor, FOREPLAY, is well written, jammed full of romance, feelings and swoon, with a twist I didn't see coming. There are plenty of graphic sexy times too, (hence the warning above) but overall, it's a great story of love, forgiveness and fresh starts.

TEASE is a Shawtastic addition to The Ivy Chronicles series!
