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. 

My Opinion

The Mistake is the second book in the Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy. It stars Garrett’s best friend Logan and the girl of his dreams, Grace- only he doesn’t know it. They meet by accident, hang out for a while and then something happens. Logan screws up royally. 

Logan is a secondary character that I adored, and so for him to have his own book I was pretty happy. He has a lot on his plate- his scholarship, his family, him crushing on his bestie’s girls. It can really mess with a guy. He comes to Grace’s rescue when she didn’t even know that he needed to thanks to some mean gals on campus and that totally endeared him to me. Yeah even after the big screw up I was still all about Logan because of his rescue. I like that he knows he screwed up with Grace and would do anything and everything to win her back.

Grace starts off a little on the easy side. She also trust too fast and too much. There is a toxic friend in her life that she needs to dump like yesterday. I like that she doesn’t fall for Logan right away. She makes him work for it, which is a change of pace from lots of other NA novels. I liked that she makes him work for a second chance. Logan has to do six things before a second chance date occurs.

Logan is dedicated I will give him that. The Mistake had me giggling and sighing throughout the book. You really can’t go wrong with it- read the first book first though. To read it out of order would be a mistake.  A fun, light read that makes you happy about happily ever afters.

My Rating 4 out of 5 stars
