Synopsis from Goodreads:
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.

Nope. Nuh-uh.

No way.

My Thoughts

Adrian Lessons wasn’t what I expected to be, and that’s largely my fault because I just read whatever I feel like reading at the moment based from my e-book library and don’t read the synopsis before reading the book. I like it when I don’t know what to expect from a book, and this time around, I was caught in surprise. Because Cleo is a writer of sex scenes for her roommate’s series, I thought that these scenes primarily would only be a base or foundation for the story, which caused me to keep on looking for more.

There were some events that seemed serious that I felt was just passed over, instead of putting more focus on them. I felt that it would have been a better balance if they were pushed some more. The inability of a person to open up to others played a big role in the relationship between Cleo and Adrian, which was nice to see even though this is a light read. Nevertheless, this one is a fun, easy read and has a lot of dry wit and humor. It was amusing to read this, and I especially love the crazy, hyper heroine.

My Rating
