College junior John Logan can get any girl he wants. For this hockey star, life is a parade of parties and hook-ups, but behind his killer grins and easygoing charm, he hides growing despair about the dead-end road he’ll be forced to walk after graduation. A sexy encounter with freshman Grace Ivers is just the distraction he needs, but when a thoughtless mistake pushes her away, Logan plans to spend his final year proving to her that he’s worth a second chance.
Now he’s going to need to up his game…
After a less than stellar freshman year, Grace is back at Briar University, older, wiser, and so over the arrogant hockey player she nearly handed her V-card to. She’s not a charity case, and she’s not the quiet butterfly she was when they first hooked up. If Logan expects her to roll over and beg like all his other puck bunnies, he can think again. He wants her back? He’ll have to work for it. This time around, she’ll be the one in the driver’s seat…and she plans on driving him wild.
I really enjoyed this…just not as much as The Deal…which is odd as I truly enjoyed both Logan and Grace just as much – if not more – than Garrett and Hannah.
So far I have been very happy with Kennedy’s female leads. They are level headed young women. And, most importantly, they manage to avoid causing me to harbor homicidal tendencies toward them – a seemingly tremendous feat these days it seems.
However, I felt that this one was a little slow to get going…and I just didn’t find the conflict here to be as compelling as I would have liked.
Otherwise, another Kennedy winner.
I’ll be curious to see what happens with the walking STD that is Dean in book three. He’s perhaps a little too skanky for my NA tastes lol.
