Review: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

Title: The Deal
Author: Elle Kennedy
Released on:
Source: Purchased
Links: Goodreads~Amazon


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.

My Review: 

Hannah Wells knows what or should we say WHO she wants, she's just not sure how to really go about getting him.  She also knows just who or shall we say what type of man she doesn't want.  However, it seems to get the man she wants, she might have to go along with the wrong sort of guys impromptu plan of "making him jealous".  

Garrett needs to get his grades up, pronto, or else he can kiss away a future as a Hockey Pro. To guarantee an elevation in GPA, he needs a tutor, someone who is smart, and can definitely help him. He knows just the girl to ask, trouble is, she doesn't want anything to do with him, much less tutoring him.  THen Garrett catches on to Hannah's crush and makes her a deal she can't refuse. 

To bad, neither Garrett or Hannah expect the deal to blow up in their faces as they end up finding their match in each other.  The sexual tension, the chemistry, the "I hate you, but I love you" in this book is off the charts.  The snark and banter in this book alone make it worth the read, but Kennedy one ups all of that by including  a mesmerizing love story full of both sweet and steamy and sometimes sweetly steamy moments.  
The side characters just add to the story making the reader look forward to seeing more of them in future books.
