He’s a player in more ways than one…

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.


Let me tell you all how much I love this series. I do. I just want to rub my face in it. It’s New Adult and I still love it. Maybe I should say that it’s New Adult done right.

This is the second book in the series and I loved it just as much as I did the first book. I fell in love with John Logan in book one and couldn’t wait to read his story. In this book, Logan is the master of the hook-up, the hit it and quit it. He’s a hockey God at school so he gets more than his share of available pussy. He also has more than his share of guilt over his infatuation with his best friend’s girl. I know some of you are turned off by this but trust me when I say, everything is not always as it seems. When he goes looking for a friend’s dorm room, he runs into Grace Ivers.

Grace Ivers can’t believe the gorgeous athlete at her door. After she explains that he has the wrong room, Logan finds that she’s watching an action flick and invites himself in. I fell in love with Grace right there. The banter between these two is wonderful. Something happens between them, not what you think, she’s a V-card carrier, but their relationship builds slowly.

I have read Elle Kennedy before and loved her SEAL series, although I’m not current on it. She writes characters that you get wrapped up in. They’re easy to root for and love. I didn’t review the first book in this series and I don’t know why I didn’t because I loved it too. If you truly want to read NA done right, then look no further because this is a great example of the genre.

  1. This really sounds like something I’d like. NA romance is hit and miss for me, but this one sounds GOOD!
