Title:  Him

Authors: Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy

Genre: Contemporary adult M/M Romance, Sports Romane

Synopsis

Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.

Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend…and a big one to learn about himself.

Warning: contains sexual situations, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition

Book Review: The Mistake, by Elle Kennedy

 Photo of the cover of The Mistake, a young adult contemporary romance novel by Elle KennedyTitle:  The Mistake
Author: Elle Kennedy
Series:  The Off-Campus Series, Book 2 – however, each book may be read as a stand-alone
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Audience:  18+
Release Date:  April 28th

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

My Review:   

       

Are you looking for a tender, sweet, poignant weekend read with relatable, endearing young adult characters, a straightforward story line that pulls no punches, a gutsy, devoted heroine and a compelling young hero?  Do you enjoy humor, coming-of-age college themes and a healthy dose of sensuality in your romantic fiction? Look no further – The Mistake has it all.  This is a story of hopes and dreams, determination and commitment, flawed humans living in the real world and learning from their mistakes. Mistakes we all make because of our own insecurities, prejudices, and assumptions. Mistakes we make because of our need to be loved and accepted for who we are, not merely who we appear to be.  And it is beautifully told by an author with just the right voice to put words to those emotions. If you’re in college, just out of college, or well beyond it, you will be able to relate to the people and the situations in this story, and experience those emotions for yourself all over again – and that is what a genuine reading experience is all about.

I highly recommend anything written by Elle Kennedy. Although part of the Off-Campus Series, each book may be read as a standalone – which makes this series ideal in every way. There are no cliff-hangers. The conclusion will leave you satisfied, yet wanting more of such stories by this talented author.  One-click it when you need a read that will leave you feeling great, ready for the next book in this fantastic series.

Cover Photo - The Deal, by author Elle KennedyUSA TODAY BESTSELLER!

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.
