Read:: The Deal by Elle Kennedy

There was all this hype with the book release of "The Score" coming out so I looked into the series and found myself one clicking on "The Deal". 

I read the summary on Amazon and as soon as I found out that it was about hockey players I was sold. I love sports romance but Hockey has a special place in my heart. Its like an instant yes, I am going to read it. 

Hannah and Garrett meet in a class, she is acing it and Garrett is trying to keep a float to stay on his hockey team. Garrett doesn't stop trying to convince Hannah to tutor him for the make up and eventually finds out that she is jonesing for a football player that she cant quite get the nerve up to have a conversation with. So he makes a deal with her and she cant refuse. I kinda felt bad for her because she thinks she is in love without speaking to the guy and ultimately feels like she has to tutor Garrett. I will give it to her though she tells him no a thousand times. I love more realistic stories than this insta love crap. Honestly who makes eye contact and starts humping. Not a lot of people. 

Eventually Mr. Cocky gets his way and he is being tutored. Its nice to read along and watch them become friends. 

The surprising part was at the whole climax around 70 to 85% when you know something is going down to make a conflict that leaves you biting your nails to see if they really get together even though you know there is a happy ending, it was HER that made it bad. Usually the guy screws up and ends up ending things to make it easier on him. This time its Hannah who has the issues and Garrett is in bad shape. I felt for the guy, he put it all out there and got his heart broken. Just for a little bit though because Hannah finally comes to her senses and figures out that fantasy isn't as good as reality and Garrett is her heart. 

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.
