he’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:

Oh good gravy where do I start. I am not a big NA reader, not sure why but I was looking for something a little more “adult” and I saw a few bloggers say this book was really good and laugh out loud funny. I couldn’t pass the chance to try it out. I am so glad I saw those posts because this book was awesome and really cracked me up. I adored Garett and Hannah the banter between these two had me rolling. Some of the best dialogue in a book I have read in a long time. Just how real life it seemed made me devour this book and need to read the next two.  I really loved all the characters and all the boys gave me those fun butterfly feelings anytime they walked into a room and made a snarky quip. This book was so much fun to read.

Hannah has a past that she wants to forget but it has been affecting her relationships with guys. Soon she starts to really like a guy in her class and is hoping she can overcome her fears and finally find someone that can give her what she needs. However she wasn’t expecting Garett, Garett the captain of the hockey team is failing his class and needs Hannah to help him, with a lot of begging, she finally agrees and now he isn’t expecting his feeling for Hannah to be so strong. He is such a wiseass and I love that Hannah doesn’t seem to be affected by his “charm”.
It’s been a very long time since I read a book that both MC characters are my favorite. I even loved all the secondary characters they were just as much fun as the MC’s. These two were totally meant for each other and I can’t express enough how much I loved this entire book from start to finish. The story was interesting and it didn’t drag, like some NA books can, this seemed to move along very nicely and I just loved the pace. You get a lot of steamy scenes and I loved the awkward moments it really felt like stuff that happens in real life.

I can’t recommend this book enough and believe me I have recommend this book to anyone that would listen to me. If you love NA or you never read it before this is a great book to start with. I can’t wait to read the next one and learn about Garett’s BFF Logan, he seems like just as much fun as Garett and I am super excited to read his other friends book, Dean, even in this book there was something about him that made me think he will be my new dream guy. 🙂

One of the best NA I have read in a long time, Loved this book! Click To Tweet

  1. I’m not sure I’ve actually read any NA but I’ve been wanting too. There’s so many out there that I haven’t been sure where to start but this sounds like it’d be a perfect starting book! I like that it’s really funny. I love a little humor in my romance. I’m looking forward to reading this one!
