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.

Book Reviews


Has Promise2 star

This author has potential however this book was poorly executed. I find her main characters have interesting qualities and “skeletons”. The way the relationship progresses through the story is a little confusing and doesn’t quite “track” with what would happen in real life. It seems like this author just wanted to through an art major and a jock together and “see what happens”. Ultimately I give this book 2 stars. I would say 1 but I actually enjoy the skeletons that she gave the characters.25


Beautiful5 star

Such a good book, well written, love watching the characters develop, I would say a light read but there are some triggers. It was a fairly fast read but lovely pace. Would definitely recommend and read again:)55


Great Read!!5 star

Loved it! Read the whole book in one sitting. Written AND edited well. Didn’t have annoying grammatical errors every other chapter like the majority of online books these days. The book was emotional and laugh out loud funny. There were perfect amounts of descriptions, conversations and don’t forget the steamy parts! The author did an amazing job with the characters personalities. The interaction between them was so real life instead of far fetched and fairy-tale like. I also loved how the book touched on a couple real life traumas that people experience and had the characters rise above their pasts! I definitely recommend reading The Deal!!!55

Absolute Favorite Book5 star

I was surprised while reading how much I loved this book- by the time I finished it had become my favorite books to date. I’ve read a lot in this genre and I believe it to be better than most. It’s well written, heart warming, trusting, pure, and erotic. I have not read any others by the author but do yourself a favor and read this!55
