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.
It’s been a long time since the last time I read a steamy romance novel. At first I was skeptical of Adrian Lessons, I feel like I have already read and seen every kind of contemporary romance out there, but Adrian Lessons surprised me in the best ways.
Cleo has an unusual job, she writes erotica for a living. Okay, not exactly. More like she writes the sex scenes of her novelist friend’s books. She was having a massive writer’s block and no thanks to her best friend, she was now given unsolicited advice from this airhead called The Sex King. Meanwhile, a gorgeous guy named Adrian is pursuing her, for whatever reason she doesn’t know. Clearly, there are more girls that are way hotter than her, what did she ever do for Adrian to fall for her?
The girls in their campus think Adrian is the hottest guy on earth and they worship the ground he walks on. The fact that he is great in bed doesn’t hurt too. He seems really perfect and very confident on the outside but he’s a romantic at heart and he hides a dark past.
It was a pleasant surprise to find out that there’s more to Adrian than looks and cockiness and for that I liked him more. He seems really smitten with Cleo even though Cleo wasn’t sure what to do with him. I find that very cute.
I also like Cleo a lot. She’s really funny and witty. She tends to make a fool of herself but that makes her all the more likeable. I also feel a connection with her best friend, Marie because I am also an (aspiring) writer and Marie and I are of the same height—4 feet 11 inches.
There are also a lot of scenes in the book that are steamy and rated 18+ so be warned! Other than that, Adrian Lessons was a great, hot, and unputdownable (not sure if it’s a real word but whatever) book! To all the hopeless romantics out there who don’t mind steamy reads, this one is for you.
