Hello everyone! Welcome back to Cover to Cover! Today, I want to talk about a series that I have seen time and time again on my Tiktok and Instagram feed. I've read a book by Elle Kennedy before, and I liked it. And I was looking for something to read, so impulsively I started reading the first book in this series, The Deal. It was also on Kindle Unlimited, so that helped make my decision rather easy. So, let's get into it!
I decided to do one review of the whole series instead of five individual reviews because that would have been so boring and repetitive. It's basically the same plot line/plot sequence throughout all five books. For some background, the order in which the five books were written is below:
These are all "stand alone" novels meaning you can read just one in any order, but they take place in the same universe with the same characters. For example, The Deal is Garrett and Hannah's story, and The Mistake is Logan and Grace's story. Garrett and Logan are best friends, so you would know Logan from the first novel.
I actually really like when authors do this. Katie McGarry has a few YA series that follow this same sort of pattern. You really wouldn't need to read all of them; if you were interested in just one, read the one you are interested in and move on. There are a few spoilers but nothing really that major. I mean the books are pretty predictable anyways.
As stated before, all the books follow the same plot pattern. Surprisingly, I didn't get tired of it, and I even read all the books back-to-back in one weekend. I was hooked, and I just wanted something romantic, mindless, and fun!
The entire series is on Kindle for about $5 or less. The Deal is the only one on Kindle Unlimited for whatever reason. And the books range from 305-340 pages long, with relatively short chapters.
Out of the five, The Deal was my favorite by far. So, if you do decide to read any of these, definitely pick up the first one. The overall theme of the books is that the main guy character is an amazing hockey player, and has been with a lot of girls--they have that sort of reputation. Very attractive, very popular, and very swoon worthy. Then they all meet the one girl that changes everything and suddenly realize they want to be in a relationship. Of course, there are the ups and the downs in every story but, overall, it's the same thing. Like I said, I didn't have a problem with it because that's kind of what I was looking for at the time. If you think you'd get tired of it, I would recommend taking a break in between each book.
Overall, I would give the series as a whole 3.5/5 stars!
Alright folks, that is all I have for this week! Come back next Wednesday for another blog post! As always, thank you for reading:)
