I adored Foreplay the first book in the Ivy Chronicles by Sophie Jordan and found it to be a refreshing, low-angst tale in sea of drama filled new adult titles.

The answer, my friends, is yes! She gave me an intense, bone-chillingly realistic future world with interesting characters. Mini-review: Thought-provoking, eerily plausible and exciting beginning to this duology.
