Title: The Deal (Off-Campus #1)
Author: Elle Kennedy
Publication Date: February 24th 2015
She’s about to make a deal with the college bad boy…
Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice… even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.
…and it’s going to be oh so good.
All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he’s all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn’t take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn’t going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.Review: It’s been such a long time since I’ve been in the mood to read an ebook, but I am SO glad I found The Deal when I did! Garrett and Wellsy’s story was so perfect and had everything I needed rolled into one. How I haven’t discovered this series before now is absolutely mind-blowing! This was such a fun college sports romance that has one of my ultimate tropes: fake dating. Someone should have warned me I’d become total trash for Elle Kennedy after reading this!
I also really love all the secondary characters in the story as well! There’s nothing like having a house full of hockey players as entertainment. Did I mention that I may or may not have binged the entire series after this? This story rekindled my love for sports romance and I’ve been on a total spiral since!
