Book 38: The Deal

Cup is from Black Rock Cafe. It’s so cute!

By: Elle Kennedy


Plot (Goodreads Summary):

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.


Hi. Okay. I don’t know how to handle this. This series has me messed up. Like messed up. The spin-off series is not as great but I will talk about that when I write a review about it.

Garrett is freaking hilarious. Elle Kennedy is freaking hilarious. I love Elle Kennedy. I tried reading a sample of it on Goodreads after having it recommended it to me, and I did not like it at all. It sucked. But then months later I decide to give it another go on Audible – just to see if it was me and my reading issues. It was! My brain messed me up! And it turns out that we have the same writing style. If you want to know my thoughts on that, Blogger’s Note.

Hannah. Oh Hannah. I wish I had the guts to be her. She is stubborn and uncaring but caring at the same time. I don’t know how she does it. I don’t think I have said this before but if I had multiple lives, or if I had to choose a second career, I would be a singer and/or actress. I love singing so much and I am surprisingly good at it. I don’t even know how that happened. I think I am living vicariously through her.

I was low key worried about Logan the entire book though. Like what was going to happen to him because I hate love triangles even if I know who they end up with because then I feel bad for the guy that didn’t get picked. Then came the second book and I was fine. That review is coming soon.

Trigger warning: rape.

I’m reading the spin-off now so I’ll let you know how that goes.

Blogger’s Note:

About the writing style thing, my anxiety about that situation has gone through the roof. Mainly because if I didn’t want to read this amazing book then who will read mine. Then I think about all the people who love this book series. I was recommended it so many times it’s hard to count. I’m cool now. I’m sorry but this cover makes me uncomfortable. I’m tired so I will see you all this weekend.

Love you all ♡
