A new standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling 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.

    Funny, sexy, sweet...still swooning. Elle Kennedy always does a great job of addressing uncomfortable subjects—this time misogyny and substance abuse. Wish we could have gotten more back story to Jake and more epilogue but overall a satisfying and addictive read. Know I’ll buy the next two books just to continue reading about Jake and Brenna ❤️
  • Takes on the hard parts of life in a great way.

    I can’t say enough great things about this book. The hard hitting life events, challenges of being a woman getting into a male dominated field, and the chemistry and romance. This book flowed very well, is written with excellent editing and writing. It truly has everything. I want to say more, but also don’t want to spoil it, so if you are debating reading this book or series, stop debating it and read them!
  • Love these 2!

    I need more of Brenna and Jake. These 2 are my absolute favorites! Such a great book!

    I honestly really liked the maturity of the characters, not too dramafied but just the right amount. It was an easy, nice read. Very cute!
