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


Couldn’t put it down!5 star

Stayed up wayyy late to finish this! This was one of those “can’t put down” books for me. Plenty of steam, but also a good story line. Looking back, there were a few problematic scenes. But while I was immersed in the book, I didn’t really notice them. Definitely check the trigger warnings before diving in. I was clearly late to the game on this one, but I’m so glad I read it!55

Couldn’t put this book down!5 star

As an avid reader, I can honestly say this has been the best book I’ve read in months. I couldn’t put it down for even a second. I almost wanted to restart it but then remembered there are more to come. Starting The Mistake next (obviously)! Don’t pass this book up, if you’re reading this review take it as your sign. READ. IT.55
