(Briar U #3)
by Elle Kennedy
What I learned after last year’s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more 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 celibate…no matter how hard that makes things.
But there’s nothing in the rulebook that says I can’t be friends with a woman. And I won’t lie—my 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 she’s got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch her.
Except three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a rebound.
And she’s making a play for me.
Avoiding her is impossible. We’re paired up on a yearlong school project, but I’m confident I can resist her. We’d never work, anyway. Our backgrounds are too different, our goals aren’t aligned, and her parents hate my guts.
Hooking up is a very bad idea. Now I just have to convince my body—and my heart.
💘Hunter Davenport: Captain. Hockey Player. Celibate. Weakness: Demi “Semi” Davis 💕 Psych Research Partner. Unavailable.
THE PLAY by Elle Kennedy awesomely romantic💋❤ and eggcellently funny. Pablo Eggscobar stole the show… just saying..
It was so nice to read about Hunter Davenport this time around. I know from the first two books, I didn’t really like him nor had I any sympathy for this quarterback. I thought his celibacy oath was a joke, until he met his match – Demi Davis. This smart Psychology major brought out the best and worst in Hunter and I liked her for that. Though their chemistry didn’t fizzle (for me, that is) like Hollis & Rupi’s cat & dog relationship, in the end, I loved how their slow burn romance finally kindled with fire.
Also, let me reiterate – my favorite scenes in the book is wherever, whenever Pablo Eggscobar was.. O.M.G. It’s hilarious!
