*Last but most certainly not least, I HAVE to mention the Off Campus series by Elle Kennedy. I’ve read all but book 4 of this series and they’re each beyond amazing. My favorite would be book 1 with Garrett. I call DIBS!!
This series is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!! It follows 4 college roommates who all play hockey.
The synopsis for The Goal (Book One) is:
Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice…even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.
…and it’s going to be oh so good
All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for.

Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.
