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. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I was in a book rut. I couldn’t find anything to read. Every book I started, I couldn’t get into, as I’m patiently waiting for The Play to come out. I remembered I hadn’t read her other series. So I jumped in, and I’m glad I did. Garrett and Hannah’s story is one of those that you can’t help but love. In ways, they are both broken and need to feel whole again. I don’t feel like either of them changed who they were for each other, but they grew. Realizing all the good that their relationship provides. There are some heavy topics in this story. But it’s about overcoming them and doing what’s best. There are funny moments as well; the secondary characters were just as fun as the main ones and can’t wait to read their stories. Overall, Five Boundless Stars
