The Deal by Elle Kennedy

The Deal is written from both Hannah Wells' and Garrett Graham's points of view. Hannah Wells has a major crush on her university's football star, Jacob. He's mysterious, quiet, and doesn't have a new girl every night. Basically the polar opposite of hockey star Garrett Graham. He has to find a tutor when he fails his midterms and his GPA starts plummeting. After he notices Hannah was one of the few to ace the test, he thinks she's the perfect candidate for a tutor. Well, she disagrees. In order to convince Hannah to tutor him, he has to find out what she wants. When he finds out about her crush, he offers to help make him jealous. 
Even though they don't get along right off the bat, they form an unlikely friendship. When they kiss and Garrett realizes he wants more, he has to pull out all the stops to make her realize they're meant to be.

This book turned out to be one of my favorites. I will put a trigger warning because it brings up sexual assault and domestic abuse. Elle Kennedy did an amazing job writing a fun, yet serious, story that brings awareness to abusive relationships not only in relationships but also families. Not to mention all the steamy scenes! I've found it difficult to find books that can do both and I applaud her for doing it so well. I definitely recommend the entire Off-Campus series!
