My review :
« The Deal » or the most endearing book from the « University romance » genre ! Book one from the Off-campus serie is according to me the perfect illustration of the expression « feeling in love while reading ».
I have to admit that at the 5 first pages I was doubtful. We learned outright about the traumatic event that scarred our female character and I immediately thought there would be a lot of unnecessary drama. Then, the hero appears and I thought of the cliché of the good-looking football captain who’s full of himself. Well, guess what ? It was that…but so much more !!! (Fisrt, because he was a hockey captain and not a football one…yeah, that’s definitely not the same thing…duh.)
Garrett is confident (a little too much sometimes) but so funny and endearing. Hannah is strong, humble and smart. They’re both talented and determined. Elle Kennedy created characters with such depth and realism that I never wanted the story to end. The remarkable thing the author did in writing this book I think is : taking a « deja-vu » scenario and turning it into something entirely unique.
