"The Deal is a real gem! If you are on a lookout for something with light-hearted humor, splendid storyline and charged with sexual chemistry, I strongly recommend reaching for it. It’ll be exactly what you need." - Patrycja

^This is 100% the truth about this book. It was a delight to read. It completely caught me off guard. So many of my friends were reading it, I just took a shot in the dark without expecting anything. The low expectation only made this book even better.

Throughout most the book Garrett is portrayed like your typical cocky jock, but when he surprised me I fell completely head over heels in love with him - (view spoiler). Seriously, I had a stupid grin on my face while reading everything he said or did after that. And Hannah was such an amazingly strong female lead that more authors should achieve to write characters like. I loved them both. I loved their story.

This book also deals with a sadness (view spoiler) that a lot of NA romances try to cover and fail while doing so. This book does a phenomenal job bringing light to that darkness. I have the utmost respect for this author.

I ate this book up.
With a spoon.
Then asked for seconds.

Now aiming to fill the banjo-drum-playing-mobster-jock-with no-penetration archetype. I feel so cliche. :P

I felt the exact same! I'm still surprised I'm actually enjoying this series, to be honest! They are just such good fluff! :]
