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.
The Mistake is the type of book that can be inhaled in one sitting. The first in The Off Campus Series, it can be read as a stand-alone. Logan is a typical bad boy college team hockey player. He parties, uses girls for sex, and is love with his best friend’s girl. Looking for a party one night, he knocks on Grace’s door and instead ends up watching a movie with her and then making out. He leaves frustrated that she didn’t “finish” and goes looking for her to even things out because his ego won’t let him not get a girl off. Grace is a good girl and a virgin. She is ready to give up the goods, but only to someone who isn’t a jerk. She thinks that someone is Logan, but when he hurts her, she tosses his butt out and doesn’t want to see him anymore.
Logan ends up back in Grace’s life and she has no interest in him. He is going to have to change and do some serious groveling to make her want him back. I absolutely LOVE how tough Grace is. She calls Logan out on his BS and doesn’t take any of his crap. He isn’t used to girls not falling at his feet, so her attitude is very refreshing! I do wish she was more aggressive with her best friend, though. I hated how Grace allowed Ramona to treat her! But, Logan is so swoon-worthy with Grace. The way he goes about winning her back is sweet. She really made him work for it! My heart ached for Logan and his family situation – which prevented him from being drafted or playing for a major hockey team. Poor guy. The way the story wrapped up was great and makes me want to read the rest of the series (including the first book)!
I really enjoyed this sweet story that I devoured it in one afternoon. It’s the kind of book that I didn’t want to put it down until it was finished.
