Though she lives away from home as a sophomore at Dartford University, Georgia Robinson isn’t as independent as she might wish. Her parents pay her way, and they also keep encouraging her to get back together with her hometown ex-boyfriend, Harris, who cheated on her. To boost her spirits, she ventures out to a sex club with a friend and is shocked to see that her roommate’s younger brother, Logan Mulvaney—a high school senior—is the star attraction. Georgia is drawn to confident, experienced Logan, and the attraction is mutual. She’s embarrassed to date someone so young, but Logan’s persistence pays off, and soon their chemistry is intense enough to earn an A from any professor. Logan may be younger, but it’s Georgia who must decide to grow up and defy her parents. Jordan’s third Ivy Chronicles novel (after Tease) perfectly fits the new adult mold, featuring a young woman with a bright future confidently exploring her sexuality before reaching a traditional happy ending. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (Nov.)
