He’s a player in more ways than one…

College junior John Logan can get any girl he wants. For this hockey star, life is a parade of parties and hook-ups, but behind his killer grins and easygoing charm, he hides growing despair about the dead-end road he’ll be forced to walk after graduation. A sexy encounter with freshman Grace Ivers is just the distraction he needs, but when a thoughtless mistake pushes her away, Logan plans to spend his final year proving to her that he’s worth a second chance.

Now he’s going to need to up his game…

After a less than stellar freshman year, Grace is back at Briar University, older, wiser, and so over the arrogant hockey player she nearly handed her V-card to. She’s not a charity case, and she’s not the quiet butterfly she was when they first hooked up. If Logan expects her to roll over and beg like all his other puck bunnies, he can think again. He wants her back? He’ll have to work for it. This time around, she’ll be the one in the driver’s seat…and she plans on driving him wild.

*An E-ARC was supplied to me in exchange for review*

The warmth of his body is a nice distraction from my current predicament. So is his aftershave. Or is it cologne? His natural scent? Holy Moses, if it’s his natural scent, then he needs to bottle that spicy fragrance up, call it Orgasm, and sell it to the masses.

I’ve been a bad reviewer for the past year. After getting pregnant and having my baby I’ve really been slacking on reading and reviewing the books I was asked to review or I wanted to review. I initially got The Mistake way back in April to read and review when the book came out. I read it and then didn’t write the review. I know…like I said I’m a bad reviewer. Well, within the last month I’ve gotten back into reading, mainly when I nurse my baby at night, but that’s been enough time for me to read several books I’ve been meaning to review. Since it had been so long since I originally read The Mistake I read it again and let me just say I loved it as much the second time as I did the first time. I found myself sitting in my baby’s room holding her way longer than needing to at night because I wanted to get to certain parts.

My main reason for loving The Mistake had to be because of Grace and Logan. The way Grace handled herself with Logan was awesome. I loved how she made him work for a second chance with her. And I loved how Logan knew why he had to do what he had to do for the second chance. Everything about the way they handled all the situations was just very mature and didn’t involve stupid choices. Even the so called “mistake” Logan made isn’t that bad but it sure made it more interesting. I loved Logan in The Deal so getting to see his love story was amazing especially since he’s a good guy. Everything he did for his family and for Grace just made me love him more. And Grace was just a great character. I loved her as both Freshman Grace and Sophomore Grace. Freshman Grace was great with all the rambling she did when she talked to guys. Sophomore Grace was more sophisticated and not as naive but still awesome. Together these two were amazing. Loved how they talked to each other plus they were pretty hot together ;).

I also enjoyed seeing Garrett, Hannah, Dean, and Tucker again. I’m really excited to read Dean’s book next. He is quite the narcissist so I can’t wait to see that. It was great getting to see Garrett and Hannah again and have them be a little part of the story. I also really enjoyed Daisy, Grace’s roommate. She seemed like an awesome roommate and friend to have. Ramona, on the other hand, I could do without, but I did like the way Grace handled her and their friendship. And can I just say Grace has the best parents. For a divorced couple they were very cool with each other and I liked their relationship with Grace. I can’t say the same for Logan’s father.

Overall, I really loved this book. The story was pretty straightforward but all the elements really just worked and made it a great read. Elle Kennedy knows how to write great characters I must say. I just loved their personalities and how they handled each situation. It just made me want to keep reading until I finished the whole book and makes me excited for the next book in this series. Love it!
