The Graham Effect, Paperback / softback Book

The Graham Effect Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The first book in the delicious, icy-hot Campus Diaries series, a spinoff of BookTok sensations Off Campus and Briar U, by New York Times bestselling author Elle Kennedy. Hockey's golden girl just made a deal with the bad boy . . . Gigi Graham has exactly three goals: qualify for the women's national hockey team, win Olympic gold, and step out of her famous father's shadow.

So far, so good, except for two little things. Fine - a little thing and a big, grumpy thing. She needs to improve her game behind the net, and she needs help from Luke Ryder. Ryder is six-foot five, built, opinionated, rude . . . and sexy as hell. But he's still the enemy. Briar's new hockey co-captain has his reasons, though.

The men's team just merged with a rival program, leaving Ryder with an angry roster where everyone hates one another's guts.

To make matters worse, the summer coaching spot he's angling for with the legendary Garrett Graham is out of reach after he makes the worst possible first impression on his hero.

So, really, this compromise with Gigi is win-win. He helps her make the national team, she puts in a good word with her dad. The only potential snag? This bone-deep, body-numbing, mind-spinning chemistry they're trying to ignore.

It's a dangerous game they're playing, but the risks just might be worth it. Readers love The Graham Effect . . . 'Utterly adorable, completely charming, and sexy as hell, The Graham Effect has everything you'd want in a college romance - a grumpy/sunshine pairing, a very steamy 'steam room' scene, and a hockey-playing heroine!' Meghan Quinn 'Sexy hockey player?
