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.

This is my second attempt at reading this book, and I’m really glad I gave it another shot. I think I wasn’t ready for the heavy material of the book the last time I tried to read it. Hannah and Garret were a cute couple and the love story was very good. I’m not sure I’m interested in reading the rest of the series though. If I do it definitely won’t be right away.

I feel like I don’t have much to write about this book. Other than the heavier material it was pretty standard romance novel. I enjoyed it, but I don’t see myself coming back for a reread.

Memorable quotes:

“Sometimes people sneak up on you and suddenly you don’t know how you ever lived without them.”

“And the most important lesson I learned is that I’m not a victim – I’m a survivor”

“Living well and being happy is how we get over shit in our past.”
