The Deal (Off-Campus Book 1)

The Deal (Off-Campus, #1)

The Deal by Elle Kennedy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Enjoyable NA (college) read

This was my first read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. There was suspense coming from several angles- not just the main relationship. It kept the book moving- no lulls.
I do wish there had been some resolution for Hannah’s parents, but everything else I can think of was resolved.
I need my stories to have an HEA, and this one delivers. Granted it is more HFN than HEA, but this is NA- they are young. Let them be!
Everything about this was good. The writing was good. The story, the characters’ back stories, the supporting characters, even the teasers laid for the next book (will poor Logan find love? My guess is… most likely)- all really good.
That said, I’m on the fence as to whether this would be a re-read for me. But, to be fair, my re-reads are generally darker (kidnapping, forced marriage, etc.). That’s not to detract from whether this is a good NA book- it really is. I’d like to read more from this author, perhaps her romantic suspense.
All in all, definitely a recommended NA read!

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.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
