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.


OMG! I loved this book so hard! Once I started, I could NOT put it down! This book was everything I wanted it to be and so much more! Believe the hype everywhere you see because THE DEAL was fucking fantastic! Not only is there an emotional factor within the book, there is pages and pages of steamy and hilarious goodness! I can’t stop smiling!

I love finding ‘new to me’ authors that just knock my socks off! Elle Kennedy is an amazing writer. I love her style so much. Not too angsty, incredibly sexy with a dash of sweet mixed in makes for a perfect romantic, feel good read. In book 1 of the Off-Campus series we are introduced to some pretty awesome characters like the main ones, Hannah and Garrett. Talk about sexual tension in the house! Whew! I’m fanning myself all over again. We also get some insight on some secondary characters that I know will get their own stories soon enough. I didn’t think I would be all into the College Romance aspect of the series, but I totally devoured it! It took me back to some great times in college and reminded me of the friendships and loves that were formed at that time.

I enjoyed the premise of THE DEAL so much. Captain of the hockey team seeks out tutor to help him not get kicked off the team. Said tutor takes one look at captain and says HELL NO! Drastic measures ensue, weaknesses are played upon, and finally a deal is struck. Witty and sarcastic banter fly, a friendship is formed, feelings continue to grow and an epic love story is born.

This is a book that will make your heart soar, your body shiver, your cheeks turn red, and your mind fill with beautiful possibilities of friendship and love. THE DEAL is a delightful treasure that cannot be missed. Elle Kennedy has made another true fan with this book, and I can’t wait to dive into the next.
