He knows how to score, on and off the ice
Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she’s going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.
It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over
Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

I knew this book will definitely bring me tons of fun times, but heck I didn’t expect this installment to be this crazily good! And HOT. Who wouldn’t get all warmed-up when it’s The Life of Dean we’re talking here? DEAN SEBASTIAN KENDRICK HEYWARD-DI LAURENTIS.
We’ve met Dean in the previous books of the Off-Campus series. One of the hockey hotties of Briar, this guy is the manwhore of all manwhores in the team. And then there’s Allie Hayes, Hannah’s (Garrett’s girlfriend) best friend who also appeared in the previous books, who just broke-up with her long-term boyfriend Sean. Things started off when Allie went to the hockey players’ apartment to spend the night in order to avoid being confronted by Sean. That’s the time when she and Dean got drunk together and well, ended up screwing each other.
This book is practically a friends-with-benefits kind of book, but I loved how the romance came out very developed here– how Dean and Allie both started off as f*ck buddies which turned into something in the long run. And of course, their character development. So amazed how Dean transformed into one responsible and matured guy and how he stayed loyal to only one girl. *sigh
As usual, Elle Kennedy once again made this entire book worth the read because of the humor that’s present in every chapter. There were LOTS of laughable moments here. Little Dean, WINSTON, the martial arts done by Allie and Summer, the Hunger Games and Twilight references, Logan and G’s teasings, Tuck’s shenanigans, and all!. I had to take a break just to have a good, healthy laugh!!! And my, those hot scenes– NUFF SAID.
Seriously, this installment is everything. Dean is one of the NA men every girl would really swoon over. I enjoyed everything here because it’s so damn entertaining and romantic to the extreme! I need the fourth book now!
