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.

I couldn’t wait for this book to release because I really, really enjoyed the first book in the Off Campus series, The Deal. I thought Garrett and Hannah were such great characters and their story was so full of greatness that I couldn’t wait to read Logan’s book.

Logan is Garrett’s best friend and he’s got a thing for Garrett’s girlfriend, Hannah. He’s trying to get over it but Hannah is everything that Logan wants in a girl but now that she’s with Garrett, she’s off limits. Having them both around all the time is making it hard for Logan to get over his feelings for Hannah so he goes out a lot and he sleeps around and he does other stupid boy things that solve absolutely nothing. One night, he heads out to a party but discovers he’s got the wrong room number and no phone. So he asks the pretty girl that answers the door if he can use her phone and then just like that, Grace Ivers is introduced into Logan’s life.

Elle Kennedy delivers another entertaining read with a cast of characters that will worm their way into your heart and set up residence. Logan and Grace were fantastic together and I loved Logan’s determination to win Grace back after his big mistake. I loved that when Grace came back, she was all business. She wasn’t going to allow herself to hope for more with Logan and she was determined to move on from the mistakes of her freshman year in college. I love that she was strong and she was smart. I love that she didn’t immediately forgive those that wronged her. She was just a fun character to get to know. I completely saw what Logan saw in her. I got why he was so attracted to her. She was pretty awesome.

And then there was Logan. John freaking Logan. What a jackass. LOL. but I LOVED this jackass. I loved the way that he was with his boys. I loved the way that he stubbornly went about checking things off of Grace’s list. I loved his grand gestures and I really loved the scene where he finally found the red velvet chaise and the excitement he showed when he did. He was a good guy who did stupid things but who doesn’t do stupid things in college? I liked that when he realizes he was a jackass, he didn’t wait to fix things…he went about fixing them right away. I also loved that he never gave up on Grace…even when it looked like she gave up on him. The dogged determination that he showed about getting the girl made me all swoony. It was great.

Overall, this was a great read. A great addition to an already great series. I’m anxious for more from these characters and I can’t wait to see what Elle Kennedy has in store for Dean, the Sex Machine. That guy is all over the place with his sexy times. I hope we get to hear more about his stalker and I’m pretty damn anxious to find out who wins his heart. Is it Sabrina? Is it someone completely different? I’m also wondering if Ramona gets her own book because as pissed off as I was in this book with her and the way she treated Grace, I’m still curious about her.

Anyway, this was a great book and even though The Deal is still my favorite, I enjoyed this one too. Lots of good stuff in here and you won’t be sorry…so read it!

Grade: 4.25 out of 5
