Good Girl Complex

Good Girl Complex is a contemporary cross-class romance which is weighed down by its formula, and while the author gives an excellent view of her working-class hero, she doesn’t deliver on the heroine’s wealthy side of the class divide. Mackenzie - Mac - Cabot is just one of the many filthy-r ...

Claimed

Why should YA have all the dystopia fun? Elle Kennedy takes the post-apocalyptic US in a decidedly adult direction in Claimed, the first book in her Outlaws series of erotic romances. Rather than marry the psychopath who wants her hand, Hudson Lane fled her privileged life in the city and joined ...

The Dare

Elle Kennedy is one of my favorite authors for new adult college sports romances and The Dare is part of her Briar U spinoff of her Off Campus series. While other stories in the series have been quite fun and entertaining, this one left me somewhat disappointed, reasons for which I'll outline below. ...

The Play

Fans of New Adult sporty romances set on college campuses likely have writers like Elle Kennedy on their auto-buy lists and I'm definitely one of them. With her current series, Briar U, she's been profiling some good guy hockey players, young men with an eye for the ladies as much as the game. Now i ...

The Chase

Elle Kennedy returns to the new adult hockey romance world with The Chase, a spinoff from her Off-Campus series, that is set to launch at least two (please more) books into the much loved setting of Briar University.

Midnight Target

Midnight Target is the eighth and final chapter of Elle Kennedy’s Killer Instincts series. For fans of the series, this book provides some much-anticipated closure for not one but two couples, but for readers unfamiliar with these characters,  Midnight Target may induce whiplash with its constant ...

The Goal

Elle Kennedy has a special place in my heart.  The Off-Campus series was my first foray into the sports romance genre and launched my love affair with all things new adult, contemporary and sports team related.  Though I’ve since read many more (good and bad) series - it’s still #2 in my menta ...

The Score

I have really been enjoying Elle Kennedy’s Off Campus series about the guys of the fictional Briar University hockey team. The Score, the third entry in the series, is not as good as the first book (The Deal) but definitely better than the second (The Mistake). For sure, it's another tally in the ...

The Mistake

Do you remember when I reviewed Elle Kennedy’s The Deal and I specifically mentioned all of the hero’s hot hockey player roommates who were just itching for stories of their own? Well, they’re coming off the bench, and while not quite as good as the first book in the Off-Campus series, The Mis ...

B
The Deal

I really, really liked Elle Kennedy’s The Deal. The characters are fantastic, and I stayed up into the wee hours to finish it. Unfortunately, as is the case for any story involving sports or other serious pursuits, Kennedy’s lack of accuracy in portraying the sport of ice hockey created a seriou ...
