Publisher's Summary

A sexy stand-alone novel from New York Times and international best-selling author Elle Kennedy.

Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right - I don’t let fear rule me, and I certainly don’t care what people think. But I draw the line at sleeping with the enemy. As the daughter of Briar’s head hockey coach, I’d be vilified if I hooked up with a player from a rival team.

And that’s who Jake Connelly is. Harvard’s star forward is arrogant, annoying, and too attractive for his own good. But fate is cruel - I require his help to secure a much-coveted internship, and the sexy jerk isn’t making it easy for me.

I need Connelly to be my fake boyfriend. 

For every fake date…he wants a real one.

Which means this bad girl is in big trouble. Nothing good can come from sneaking around with Jake Connelly. My father would kill me, my friends will revolt, and my post-college career is on the line. But while it’s getting harder and harder to resist Jake’s oozing sex appeal and cocky grin, I refuse to fall for him.

That’s the one risk I’m not willing to take.

Not for me

I usually love Elle Kennedy and her Brian U books are some of my all time favorites, but not this time. I found Brenna to be completely unlikeable. I didn't like the way she treated the people around her, or the way some of them treated her. The kicker for me was when she went to visit her cousin and had some time to kill alone in a quiet dorm room. She is supposed to be at a prestigious university and presumably has some actual work to do. Homework maybe? Instead Brenna chose to spend several hours scrolling through Tinder, just so guys could tell her how hot she is, even though she had no interest in meeting anyone. Her internal dialog was more about her hair, clothes and general hotness than any real substance. Even the heavenly voice of Teddy Hamilton couldn't save this one for me. Sorry. Done. Returning.

Absolutely loved it! A must listen!

Absolutely loved this new audiobook in this series... I adored Jake and Brenna. Their chemistry is scorching HOT and their banter is fantastic. I was hooked from the beginning and was completely enthralled until the end. I can’t wait to listen to the others in this series. Fantastic narration by Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose. I highly recommend this audio!

😍

Smiley face with heart emoji eyes! I truly enjoyed the book. The storyline kept on building and building on the emotions. In my opinion this book is better than the one before. I loved it and I anxiously waiting for the next installment in the series.

The narration was great as well.

Loved Brenna's story!!!

The story and narration was excellent!! Enjoying the Briar U characters and narrators. Just fantastic and thank you Teddy for your wonderful and sexy mouth!! Virginia Rose is a great narrator too. Loved her as Brenna. College rom com's aren't usually a fav of mine but I like the author Elle Kennedy a lot.

Really didn’t do it for me

This was really missing something. Didn’t really feel the relationship and the whole book seemed a bit emotionally immature. Jake’s ego and selfishness were just really annoying. There’s something quite boring about two good looking universally adored people getting together. And I know it’s college life but the whole book was just obsessed with getting laid which was dull too. Perhaps I’ve just matured past these books? I used to love Elle Kennedy. Still love Sarina Bowen books though so maybe it’s just this particular series that’s a dud for me.
