The Deal

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.

Never ceases to disappoint5 star

I‘ve lost track of the amount of times I‘ve re-read this book but every single time is just as magical as the first. 55


Love5 star

I absolutely fell in love with this book and all the characters! I haven’t got around to reading the spin off books yet. 55


Great Story5 star

It rare that I really want more, but this book leaves me wanting more. I like the way it ended don’t get me wrong but more would have been awesome. I like that the main characters help each other, that’s the sign of a great relationship. 55

The Deal4 star

Amazing book! It’s cliché, yet unique. It’s at times predictable, yet still had me on the edge of my seat during certain other parts, and the undeniably amazing relationship between the two main characters was beyond worth reading. The character development was great, the relationship development between the two main characters even better, and it’s safe to say that this book gave me a hard time putting it down until I was completely finished with it. That being said, I can’t wait to read the next installment. All in all, in my opninion at least, Elle Kennedy did an amazing job with this one! 45

Loved it!5 star

I loved this book! It was so refreshing and i loved the character development. I just loved how Hannah and Garrett got together. I loved that they became friends first and their relationship developed. Their relationship was perfect. It really reminded me of J. Lynn's Wait for Me, which i loved as well. I'm so glad i read this book. 55



I never get into book reviews because my taste is all over the spectrum and what some people might consider a crappy book others will fall in love with. I read just about anything but the hopeless romantic in me secretly loves stories like these! The plot was great. I loved the fact the chapters alternate from each main character. I absolutely could not put this book down once I started it yesterday evening. I stayed up until 4am reading to finish it. If you pull for the underdog or love stories about someone who has faced hard times and fights to be the best they can be, if you look for characters you can relate to, maybe not event for event but in likeness, then I totally absolutely recommend you giving this book a try! 55

Really good book! Really good storyline and characters and ending! Would love a book two of Hannah and Garrett’s love story! 55

The Boss of the House


I've read the entire series and I full heartedly can say that I've never read a better series. After a good book I always think 'oh no! No book will ever beat this one!' And this is the truth to this series. In each book you read about a certain roommate of 4 but you also learn about parts of the other roommates lives that makes you want to read THEIR story. I was hooked!! And I'm so so sad that there is no more to read:( I fell in love with the characters and I just couldn't get enough. All of it is so relatable being a teen and I just can't say enough good things. READ THIS BOOK!!! 55


Great!5 star

Loved this book, it started a little slow but everything was written smoothly. Loved how there's so much depth to each character. I'm now a Graham fan. Can't wait to read Logans book! 55

Awesome Book5 star

I loved this book. This book had it all, the hot guys, hot sex, and hot topics. I laughed and cried. If was catching right from the start. To me he great book is worth rereading. And I definitely will be rereading this one. 55


WHY?? Again she seems urinary incontinence3 star

Why does every book nowadays have the girls panties getting soaked when she gets turned on? I'm over 50 years old and I can honestly say that I have never had a problem like that. I actually think it's quite gross but it's in every contemporary book I read 😖 Otherwise, story was cute 35


These characters speak to you.5 star

I am an avid reader... Sone books I love, some I like, and some just speak to me. This is one of those books. The characters are so realistic and endearing that I was actually depressed when I finished the book. I've read it at least 4 times now, and I still love every bit of it. 55


Bad Boys Are Hot5 star

Hannah and Garrett share a class in college. One he is in danger of flunking if he does not get a tutor, and fast. He wants Hannah to tutor him. She does not have time. Can they compromise? Garrett will be taken off the hockey team if he cannot bring his grade up in time. So he begs. Sends texts. Even sends pic of his delicious abs. Nothing seems to motivate her to tutor him. Hannah is already quite busy and with a life of her own. She does not really want anything to do with his jock type. She turns him down until he offers her something she cannot refuse. The deal of a lifetime and its all such a good read. I could not put it down! Such an amazing bunch of characters and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. 55


😍😍😍5 star

Best YA book I've read this year. Definitely going to read more books by this author 55


So adorable5 star

I fell in love with their story from the beginning!! The way the author got into both characters was absolutely amazing and brought the story to life. This one was by far my favorite but all three are a great read which I highly recommend! I cannot wait for Tucker's story!:) 55



I loved the entire series. Perfect young love, bad boy, good girl story! 55
