The Deal

The Deal Summary

The international bestseller! Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times bestselling author Elle Kennedy!

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.

Must Read5 star

I’ve had this book on my TBR forever. I’ve read several of Elle Kennedy’s collaborations so I don’t know why it took me so long to finally jump into this series? I loved every minute of it! Garrett and Hannah were made for each other. Witty banter, a perfect chase and sexy times that are hot hot hot. I’m running to get to book 2!55

Highly recommend5 star

Hannah is a spitfire, which isn’t something you see in female leads very often so this book is refreshing. The story also does a great job tackling some big issues, and Garret’s response to those issues is heartwarming. Love the dynamic between Garret and Hannah from the start of the story to the end.55
