The Deal by Elle Kennedy Book Summary

The international bestseller! Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times bestselling author Elle Kennedy!

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.

Awesome bookGreat book about building relationships and past struggles!.Score: 5/5

Highly recommendHannah is a spitfire, which isn’t something you see in female leads very often so this book is refreshing. The story also does a great job tackling some big issues, and Garret’s response to those issues is heartwarming. Love the dynamic between Garret and Hannah from the start of the story to the end..Score: 5/5

Must read!This book was so good! I could not stop reading it, I bought the paperback copy and downloaded it onto my phone so I could read it whenever I had a few extra minutes to read! 10/10 would recommend!.Score: 5/5

Must Read!!Now let me tell you about this book series, specially this first book. I was in a reading slump and in a depressive spiral. I couldn’t find anything to read that interested me and all the romance books that interested me were ya and I needed something a little older. I found this and was doubtful since sports romance? Didn’t sound like something I could get into as a non sports fan. But let me tell you- these briar u guys and gals have my whole freaking heart. Yes these books are cheesy and predictable but in the best warm fuzzies kind of way. I could reread these books every month and still be giggling and smiling like an idiot the whole time. These are the best comfort reads. I found reading them while listening to scouting for girls is the absolute best. But seriously… read these books if you want some peace and comfort and happiness. Kennedy never disappoints..Score: 5/5

CuteNot bad actually. The writing from Hannah’s pov was a little cringe at times but overall a wholesome and heartwarming story of two people who unexpectedly heal each other of their trauma. I enjoyed how unforced it was. And honestly Garrett was a male character (at first stereotypical jock) that you grow to love and root for which I was not expecting. Not sure why this book was free for me but makes it better that I didn’t have to pay for it (though I still might’ve because I honestly enjoyed this read). Happy with the ending and the length of the story as well. Recommend for anyone wanting a cheesy romance and who has a soft spot for athletes..Score: 4/5

Enjoyable hockey romance read!Overall I enjoyed Hannah and Garret’s story. While the heroine has survived trauma, not much detail is given so the storyline focuses on Hannah’s sexual exploration in a post-traumatic stage, and being a survivor instead of a victim. And her resolve centers around the campus’s star hockey player, but together to overcome much more than either expected..Score: 5/5

Hilarious, Hot and Heartwarming 😂🔥♥️This might be one of my favorite books in recent memory. Touching on hard issues but still finding spaces to be vulnerable and funny.

The personalities , the humour , the story lines , all of it will draw you in, so much so, that whatever your off doing, whatever it may be that has your attention, work, friends , kids... u will be drawn back to thinking about when you have the next chance to get back to your book , to get back to find out what happens next ... she is a brilliant writer , who creates the story you never want to end .... this is a must read , stand alone or continue with the series ... either way you will NOT be disappointed 🤗❤️.Score: 5/5

The Deal reviewPerfect oh my goodness. I have never loved a male main character as much as I have loved Garrett. I am so proud of Hannah, she is a well written female main character. She made me so happy when she was able to overcome. Then two as a couple? Literal perfection. I loved every second of this book.Score: 5/5

Meh.“Sometimes people sneak up on you and suddenly you don't know how you ever lived without them." (410) Warning: Possible spoilers! Ever since that party when she was 15-years old, Hannah Wells has tried desperately not to paint herself as a victim, but a survivor. Escaping her small-town life where she and her family have been ruined by the crimes of others, Hannah is desperately trying to make it to her Winter recital where she can try and make up for the financial burden her past has become. On top of that, Garrett - captain of the college ice hockey team - will not leave her the hell alone. This was my first Elle Kennedy book, having heard a lot about the Off Campus series. I was expecting college romance, frat parties, drinking too much and exams, and it checks every single one of those things off. So, predictable it certainly is, but it was also quite sweet. I enjoyed the first half of the book. I thought that Hannah had some really poignant things to say about her experiences (TW for anyone affected by r*pe), and she was definitely likeable enough. Garrett was written in the way almost every sportsman is in college romance books - unattainably attractive and popular, but sweet and sensitive on the inside. He was predictable and boring at times, but I definitely swooned in places over him, particularly when it came to their first ... encounter. My biggest issue happened towards the end of the novel. I’m not going to sit here and say that I don’t enjoy the occasional miscommunication trope. I believe that communication is at the heart of any relationship, good or bad, so if the writing is good, the miscommunication trope can really work especially considering characters that come from different emotional backgrounds (i.e. “sunshine / grumpy”). For me, the miscommunication in this book just lacked lustre. It frustrates me when the miscommunication is brought on by the threats of useless secondary characters whose main purpose is to hang around long enough to make a pointless threat which we all know would’ve been squashed into the ground if our main characters just talked. I get that’s the point of the miscommunication but it just felt like such a cheap shot and, being the climax of the novel, it just felt very disappointing. In all, I enjoyed the first half of this book and would recommend it to anyone who’s looking for an easy-going romance book, but don’t expect the plot to blow you away..Score: 3/5

Easy nice readingThe book is fun and super easy to read. I really had fun and loved the smutty scenes, really! I love a guy that’s does the dirty talk and I think all the smutty scenes are actually on point and 🥵. However the book is kinda predictable right from the beginning and the sometimes too cheesy, like a too perfect of a world and I like when everything does not align as it is supposed to. But overall I really liked it!.Score: 3/5

The Deal by Elle KennedyI had heard a lot of mixed reviews before tackling this book but wow. It had me hooked from the very beginning. Garret and Hannah’s couple dynamic is cute, sexy and loving in all ways; my favourite part about them is that they are able to share the trauma they each induced and hear each other out. This book was such a good romance book. I look forward to the rest of the series..Score: 5/5
