This is a review of:
The Mistake by Elle Kennedy
Book 2 of Off-Campus series
an New Adult Contemporary Romance
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.
This series started out with a really strong couple, Garrett and Hannah. Now it’s time to Logan and Grace to take the charge and it’s normal to have high expectations.
Logan and Grace’s story is a very good one. Not the best I believe Elle Kennedy can bring. There was tension between them but I still hoped for more. I don’t think I was sold yet on the idea that Grace and Logan are truly one love. Grace can, without a doubt, show Logan his place. She is independent and doesn’t take shit from anybody even her childhood friend, Ramona. That was really admirable. But I still couldn’t get their relationship.
That doesn’t mean the book wasn’t good. It had its moments especially with Garrett and Hannah keep showing up *sigh*. Logan was right to envy their relationship.
