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 enjoyed this story. It was a lot heavier than the last book I felt. Maybe because Logan was willing to sacrifice his dreams because of family obligations. I felt for him.I also felt the author captured the feel of what it feels like to be a freshman in college. All the pressure of fitting in. Wanting to shed themselves from their high school personas. Making these big decisions that could stay with you for a long time.LoganI felt bad for him in The Deal. He thought he had these strong feeling for Hannah. He was pretty much making himself miserable.
Going through women like water. Partying too much. Pretty much just isolating himself from everyone.
Especially his best friend Garrett.When he met Grace… He still wasn’t fully allowing himself to feel anything towards her until he really messed up and hurt her feelings.


She was your typical freshman in college. She stood in her dorm room watching old action movies. Doing her school work. Nothing big.
When Logan knocked on her door by accident. I don’t think either one of them knew what they were in for.
Grace fell for Logan wholeheartedly. She really thought Logan liked her in the beginning.
But he made a big mistake.

And… I must say I loved how Grace reacted to the whole situation. She stuck to her guns and didn’t back down! I love a female main character with a backbone!
Omg! I just loved Grace!!!

Ramona was Graces best friend. They had a love-hate kind of relationship.
Ramona is that friend that everyone has had one time or another. The one that you really don’t know why you still talk to or hang out with them anymore.
Because everytime you do… Something always goes wrong and you always end up getting in trouble.
That was Ramona. She really wasn’t a true friend to Grace. I was extremely happy how Grace treated the whole situation with Ramona.

I felt Logan really had to overcome a lot in this book. He felt the pressure of how he thought his future was going to be. He felt angry that he thought he would have to give up his career to help his brother out. And he felt like he lost something special with Grace when he thought he messed up.
I loved how Grace gave him a list of things he had to do before he could even ask her out on a date! Loved it!

Overall… I really liked this book.
I loved reading about all the secondary characters in this book. And I can’t wait to read their stories.
