And Garrett really did He’s a sports jock who’s not only dedicated to playing hockey but also in getting his grades up as well and has such a fun loving caring personality It’s really hard not to fall for him When his grades drop though and his hockey playing goal is in jeopardy he finds the class smartie to tutor him leading him right to the heroine HannahStudious and practical Hannah is pursuing her goals as a songwritersinger and is pretty confident in all areas of her life except her sex life that is She’s finally found one guy who catches her interest but with absolutely zero seduction skills she’s at a loss When Garrett barges into her life asking for her to tutor him they agree on a deal she’ll tutor him so he can bring up his grades and be able to keep playing hockey and in exchange he’ll pretend date her to catch her crush’s attention I LOVE that there’s no insta love and heck the attraction didn’t settle in until later too Hannah and Garrett’s relationship is very much a gradual build going from barely acuaintances to tentative friends to an explosive couple But I’ll also admit that in the very beginning of this book I wasn’t fully into the story and the characters until later I didn’t like how judgmental Hannah was towards Garrett in the start partially because her crush was in the same position both sports players as him and she chose to stereotype Garrett while glorifying the other guy even when Garrett’s actions were always honorable and meant well But as I read on my dislike for Hannah thawed out and I ended up really loving her character I liked that despite her very strong personality she had this layer of vulnerability and her backstory actually both hers and Garrett’s hurt to read And of course I loved Garrett’s patience and understanding with her and how he propelled their relationship forward one step at a timeI also appreciated that there wasn’t any contrived drama which almost always exists in the NA books I read Any and all conflict in this story was handled well very thought out and dare I say practical too I love that the author doesn’t follow the norm and to balance out the angst she’s got a wonderful sense of humor that’s evident in the story Almost everything I highlighted in the book were passages of snarkywittylaugh out loud hilarious banter that made me laugh the entire time I read And the locker scene near the end of the book? Freaking EPIC I tell you Much like the way Hannah and Garrett surprised each other and everyone else when they fell in love this book also surprised me in the best of ways Love NA romance? You’ll hit gold with this book Not a fan of NA romance? Take a chance and let this book work its charm on you tooThe Deal is a NA romance standalone and the first book in the Off Campus series Consecutive books will be about side characters
