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.

I absolutely loved this book. It was one of the first New Adult books that I read and it made me fall head over heals in love with the genre. There’s just something about collage romance that gets to me. And the fact that the main character plays hockey was so very appealing. Books that start with the characters hating each other then eventually fall in love are my favourite. If that’s your thing along with some steamy scenes thrown in there then this is the book for you. Suitable for ages 17+ due explicit sexual content.
