<— OMG ONE OF MY FAVORITES OF THE YEAR!!! And I just realized, book #5 is up for preorder! *squeeeeee* AND AND!! Wait… they read as standalones just fine. But who wants to read just one when you can read ’em all? I can assure you… #1 rocked. my. world. Wicked witt, wicked angst, and wicked romance and steam… eventually. 😉 Yep. Slow enough burn to make the whole thing melt your socks off. Or… other things. *tee hee!!!*
And you don’t have to take my word for it… just look at the love!
Amy: I have no idea what to start after being enraptured by The Deal. I loved it. Loved, loved, LOVED it!! I’m sooooo leery of starting another contemporary romance right now because it woud have some pretty big shoes to fill after Garrett and “Wellsy” (so cute!).
Jennifer: I read The Deal after your review and LOVED it! Thanks…and yes the locker room scene I was reading and cracking up about at 1 in the morning..my husband kept telling me to be quiet because my laughing woke him up…” Penis- shaped penises” heehee!
Donna: The Deal is pure perfection!
Jean: Nothing can compare to The Deal right now!
Ashley: I read The Deal in one day! (Had to take a sick day yesterday…don’t tell). I loved the writing, the characters and honestly loved the “lighter” feel. Even though there were a few angsty moments, I didn’t get that dreaded ‘pain in my side’ I seem to have had a run of lately in the books I’ve recently read that wanted to twist you up and throw you for a loop. This was a perfect read for anyone who may be in a book slump or have read too many angsty books in a row like me
Cheryl: Wish I hadn’t already read The Deal because that would have been perfect right now.
Stella: I have like a quarter left of “THE DEAL” & i have to say that I really do love it and I’m sad that I’ll be finishing it soon. Thanks for the recommendation Maryse! Your review is spot on!
About book #1:
She’s about to make a deal with the college bad boy…
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.
…and it’s going to be oh so good
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 loveeee this series but cant find any good books now that I’m finished with it. Do you have any suggestions?
Ok, I was hesitant to read this series due to the college romance angle and hockey jocks.. But….*squeee* totally crushing on my new book boyfriend Garrett! And john.. And dean!!! Ahh! Such a good series! Slow burn love, well written steamy scenes, angsty but not broken angst. Love this series! Highly recommend. Just don’t get audio.. So many complaints about narrator and I tried book one audio and wow. Narrator was quite awful!!! Like HORRID awful. But reading… That’s the *good stuff* LOL
The entire series is just so awesome and so consistent in “feel” and character development. One of my absolute favorites!! 😀
