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.

This book made me all kinds of happy.  First off, it was the second book in a series that I am quickly becoming addicted to.  Secondly, both Logan and Grace were wonderful characters as stand-alone characters and as a couple.  It is rare that you can find characters whose stories can stand by themselves and doesn’t need the help of the other to help the audience love them.  Now I am not saying that together, Logan and Grace weren’t perfect, because they were really.  They were adorable on so many levels that it made my heart swell.

The best thing about this book was Grace.  Normally, it is always the guy that I fall in love with but this time Grace knocked it out of the park.  She was perfect in the sense that she knew what she wanted and she didn’t put up with any crap.  The moment Logan crushes her; she stands firm and doesn’t give in.  She really makes him think about his character and work out his problems before she even takes a step out with him into the relationship world.  She also stood up to her best friend, who, might I say, was kind of a horrible person.  I love levelheaded characters. 

As always, Kennedy writes such great books and characters.  I look forward to reading about Dean and the rest of the wonderful Briar hockey players (on and off the court. J)
