#BookReview: Kissing Lessons by Sophie Jordan






Synopsis: A steamy contemporary YA romance by New York Times best-selling author Sophie Jordan about a girl with a bad reputation giving lessons on how to attract guys for some extra cash—only to fall for her client’s golden-boy brother. For fans of Kami Garcia, Katie McGarry, and Netflix’s Sex Education.

Wild, beautiful, and (as rumor has it) experienced, Hayden Vargas doesn’t have time for love or relationships. She’s learned the hard way that the only person you can count on is yourself, and she’s hell-bent on earning enough money to leave her small, judgy Texas town as fast as possible. So when nerdy Emmaline Martin offers to pay Hayden for lessons in seduction, the money is so easy, there must be a catch. Enter the catch: Emmaline’s older brother, popular, all-around nice guy™ Nolan Martin, who doesn’t want his sister’s reputation tarnished by the school’s resident bad girl.

But Hayden should know that looks can be deceiving. Nolan may seem like a golden boy, but like Hayden, he has a few secrets of his own. And the more he meddles in her lessons with Emmaline, the more these polar opposites clash—and the more sparks fly. Turns out Nolan may have some lessons to teach Hayden, but only if she’s willing to learn.

Rating: ⭐⭐
My Review: The writing in this one was so good! Up to par with Jordan's others work but unfortunately this one wasn't as good as I was hoping for.  If you don't like high school cliches then this isn't the book for you.  Because, it has every single one it could find! I was hoping this was going to be something like Easy A which was so funny and adorable but sadly it wasnt.  I almost DNFed it but held out and finished.  And well now thinking back I should have just given up. Because, unfortunately this one wasn't worth the read.  










Review

"Jordan’s handling of themes surrounding teen relationships...is honest....A steamy, straight-to-Netflix teen romance." —Kirkus

"The sex positivity is welcome, while the rotating ensemble narration buoys the stock characters and prevents the story from falling into a not-like-other-girls trap. A steamy pick for fans of the slow burn." —Booklist

"[R]eaders will be eager to find out more." —School Library Journal
