New York Times bestseller Elle Kennedy brings you a sexy new Off-Campus novel that can be read as a standalone

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.

  • Underdeveloped Characters

    By dellaynet
    This one was not quite as good as “The Deal”. The characters seemed extremely underdeveloped. Grace had absolutely no personality. Logan was slightly better but I didn’t find myself LOVING the book. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good either.
  • I couldn’t put it down. Seriously.

    By bitchtreee
    This is the second book in the series and at first I was skeptical because of two things: one it costs 4.99 and two I didn’t know if it could follow in the steps of the first one. But my god. Every page, every single line, I’m hooked. There is so much detail and love that the author has clearly put in and I love it. The writing is so beautiful and the relationships are so natural and not forced. If I wasn’t so cheap, I would purchase all of the other books but that’ll have to wait.
  • Good but not good enough.

    I like this book it was ok I like the story but the deal is way more interesting and fun. I love Garret.
  • The Meaning of Love

    By Jen Veer-Boyes
    Not only was this a great love story of two college students, but also a true testament to the meaning of family. I loved how Grace and Logan had total opposite types of parents. Grace really struggled with Logan's decision for after college. She had the perfect parents, divorced but still best friends and I think she was blind to what Logan was going through. It was cool watching her open her eyes to Logan and his love for his father and brother. I loved the struggles Logan was going through with his family, because it was similar to the struggle I had growing up. I wasn't passing up the opportunity to play for a major league or anything like that, but I had similar parents to Logan's. I could relate to his story. I loved, yes loved again, the ringer Grace put Logan through to prove his intentions were good. Gave me some ideas for when my husband screws up again. 😄 Good book. Highly recommend.
  • Loved it!

    By Yvette Br.
    I loved this book! I don't know why it took me so long to start this one considering i loved The Deal. Logan and Grace were amazing. I really liked how they got together and how logan worked so hard to win her back. I loved his back story about his family too. I wish i knew more about Jeff. I felt so bad for him. I also like Daisy and Morris. I wish I knew their story. I also couldn't stand Ramona, even though i kinda felt sorry for her in the end. I just don't think i could've been friends with her after everything went down. Grace was awesome though I loved her personality and her and Logan together was the best. I can't wait to read The Score! I keep hearing it's even better than this one <3
  • Saving Grace

    By kathyesf
    This story was not what I was expecting and it was a pleasant surprise. Grace just wants to experience freedom and be the typical college girl but so far she has not found anyone that excites her. Logan shows up at the wrong room and meets Grace and so it begins. This story was a journey for Logan and you felt his passion, his heartache, and hopelessness. Truly hope that we get to hear more about this couple in the next book and see how their relationship is evolving.
  • Can't get enough!

    By NurseRachet703
    Love love loved this book! And the series!!! I've never laughed so hard reading a book! So funny seeing the thoughts of these characters. And loved how each book connected to the next and kept giving glimpses of past characters.
  • Hotter the better

    By awog
    This is book # 2 in the Off-Campus series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. It is just better read in order intended since it has such fun pieces and inside jokes that will be better understood if you read in the correct order. John Logan and Grace Ivers meet in the college dorms. Logan is not looking for anyone special, until he figures out that he was not lusting after his best friend's girl - just their relationship. Grace, on the other hand is not sure what to trust about Logan, since every chance they get together, Logan screws it up somehow. Logan has a lot of pressure on him. Star hockey player, college courses, friends and roommates, and job forced upon him by his alcoholic father. Like I said, a LOT of pressure. How does he relieve it? He finds a hook-up around campus. Grace is an excellent student who is just trying to survive her Freshman year in college. Her father is a professor, so he pressures her to stay away from the fun and the parties. Grace's mom is the opposite and wants her to have too much fun. Now what? Logan and Grace keep running into one another. Parties, movies, and the dorm. Logan cannot keep away from her now that he knows she brings him peace. Just being with her settles him mind and all the chaotic thoughts about his empty future. He tells her things he does not confide in anyone - even his very best friend. Grace has some friend problems of her own. When the jealous puck-bunny calls her out for lying about being with Logan, well .... you have to read it to believe it!! I sure hope they make this a movie because that will be one EPIC scene!! I found that this story was just as good as the first book in the Off-Campus series. The characters were there too, Such humor, fun and even some growth going on. Just an amazing cannot put it down read!!
  • Adorable

    Other than an abrupt ending, the prose flowed nicely. A fun light read.
