Why have I wated this long to read this book As always with an Elle Kennedy read I absolutely fell into this story and didnt leave until my icy heart was melting with swoon worthy moments and hot hockey gods.Hunter Davenport is just everything you d want in a man Captain of the hockey team Hunter has done a lot of growing up in the past year including taking a vow of celibacy after last years champions disaster so when life throws Demi in his path he starts to struggle and realise what s hes missing out on.God the chemistry and banter between these pair was so good love how they started off with a real friendship connection while bas boy Nico was still in the picture too.Love getting snippets of updates of the previous Briar guys especially the amazing Garrett Graham and co I would honestly read anything that Elle writes as I always live her words. A brand new standalone novel in the New York Times bestselling Briar U series What I learned after last years distractions cost my hockey team our entire season No screwing up No screwing, period As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy hockey and school now, women later Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibateno matter how hard that makes thingsBut theres nothing in the rulebook that says I cant be friends with a woman And I wont liemy new classmate Demi Davis is one cool chick Her smart mouth is hot as hell, and so is the rest of her, but the fact that shes got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch herExcept three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a reboundAnd shes making a play for meAvoiding her is impossible Were paired up on a yearlong school project, but Im confident I can resist her Wed never work, anyway Our backgrounds are too different, our goals arent aligned, and her parents hate my gutsHooking up is a very bad idea Now I just have to convince my bodyand my heart Three and a half stars.Hunter Davenport has vowed to steer clear of women and devote all his energy to hockey but he is all kinds of tempted by Demi, his partner in a year long school project Demi is in a long term relationship with the son of her parents friends, things haven t been great for a while but she won t be tempted by a hot hockey man whore s smooth talk.I enjoyed this NA college sports romance but I have to say I didn t get the feels for Hunter and Demi the way I have with some of Elle Kennedy s other couples It all felt a bit formulaic. Great read Really funny in places and sad als characters are really great and enjoyed all the banter between them The two mc are in college and it s kind of a slow burn romance Lots of sex talk and sex Reay laughed at a certain part in the book between mc and an earring situation which unfolded brilliant All we written def reccomend Hunter finally gets his girl I was so dismayed for him in the last book and was itching to see him find a girl that was worthy of his love because it was clear that Hunter Davenport had a lot of love to give.HEA More HFNCheating No As with all of the series intermingled it s great to catch up with old friends while old acquaintances find their one and only but still keep in the same place as those who came before can t wait for what happens next thoroughly enjoyed it This book is packed full of humour and literally made me laugh out loud I especially liked the way the relationship developed between the main characters Demi and Hunter Another great book in the Briar U series. This book surpassed my expectations I didn t love Hunter as a character in previous books but he had hidden depths that came out in this story, Demi is definitely his perfect match This is a great all round college story and is definitely worth purchasing Side note Hollis and Rupi are awesome Loved this pair, loved the book.Love this series want who s next.Read it she s a great story teller. Once again Elle Kennedy gives me a 5 star read Davenport and Davis are a great couple loved this story hard.
