New York Times bestseller Elle Kennedy brings you a sexy new Off-Campus novel that can be read as a standalone…
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.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Romance veteran Elle Kennedy tackles the difficult subject of sexual assault with frank sensitivity. When college student Hannah Wells agrees to tutor star athlete Garrett Graham so he can keep his place on the hockey team, she doesn't bargain on developing feelings for him. Still reeling from the trauma of being raped at a high school party, Hannah struggles with trust and intimacy. We were touched by Garrett's tenderness with Hannah, and charmed by the couple’s shared humor. Poignant and beautifully written, The Deal remains uplifting even in its darkest moments.

Couldn’t put it down. Great storyline.
i finished this book in a day. i mean 8 hours of nonstop reading. it is so good. i love the characters because this book shows a different side to classic characters with broken backgrounds. yes, the classic rape victim and a loved hockey player with an abusive famous dad. but the author really showcases this in a way in which the characters don’t mope over this one aspect of their life the entire book. while it gains the readers sympathy and evokes the emotions of the reader, the author is able to show the confident sides of the characters and the growth they already achieved. “babe” and “baby” dont sound that appealing to me but when garret says it, i really cant complain. this novel doesnt get boring at all during the 680 pages and if i could erase all memory of reading this book just to reread it, i would.
Garrett and Hannah’s story is great. The way they came together at the end was just amazing. The way Garrett didn’t just give up on Hannah and the way he really knows her shows just how much he really cares and love her.
