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.

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.

I wish I could be a bit more enthusiastic about this but the trend that NA seems to be sporting right now is too entirely predictable for my liking: throw in a spunky (and sometimes abused) hero/heroine, a hero whose dick can’t stay in his pants at all (which I totally loathe) and a set of not entirely unique circumstances that brings these two together and voila, here’s yet another NA book packaged with an anonymously ripped body on the front cover.

That said, I did have a few laughs here and there and Elle Kennedy’s writing is sharp and entertaining as ever, though I did like her heroes in the Killer Instincts a lot more.
