Review ~ The Mistake (Off-Campus, #2) by Elle Kennedy

Goodreads Summary: 

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 Review :

I read and loved the first book in this series, The Deal and the way it ended on John Logan having some feelings for Hannah, I was very worried but at the same time excited for this book thinking how the author will now write Logan's story. And whereas, the book didn't leave me disappointed, but just a little unsatisfied.

John Logan is Garrett's best friend and a fellow hockey player. He sleeps around and lives like there is no tomorrow to get over his issues. He then stumbles upon Grace in his quest of trying to avoid Hannah by banging on her door instead of someone else's. Now their meeting was a cliché but it was cute nonetheless.

Grace was a shy girl who rambles when nervous. And I liked how they became instant friends and the chemistry between them was super. Until Logan messes up that is. And I liked how Grace made him work for it when Logan realizes his mistake and wants to get back with her. She was strong then also when her best friend backstabs her.

I liked how it clears up for Logan that he doesn't have feelings for Hannah but of her relationship with Garrett. And Logan quickly realizes his mistake and pursues Grace. He has some issues because of his father being alcoholic and no sight of any ray of hope for his future. 

By the end of the book both Grace and Logan quit making immature mistakes and decisions and they're happy together. I loved to see Garrett and Hannah together with the other gang and the dialogues between them were hilarious. Garrett is still my favourite but I enjoyed reading Logan's story as well.

 Some of my favourite quotes:

“I nod in approval. “Damn. I should go into modeling.” “You photograph really well,” Garrett agrees in a serious voice. “And dude, your package looks huge.” Fuck, it totally does.” 

“Lorris ? As in Logan and Morris ? They fucking Brangelina’d themselves?” 

“And just in case my reaction to your idiocy didn’t make it clear where I stand with us, then let me spell it out for you.” I whirl around to scowl at him. “I love you, you stupid jackass.” 

“To be honest, it’s probably better if I don’t talk. Cute guys make me nervous. Like tongued-tied total-brain-malfunction nervous. All my filters shut off and suddenly I’m telling them about the time I peed my pants in the third grade during a field trip to the maple syrup factory, or how I’m scared of puppets and have mild OCD that could possibly drive me to tidy up your room the moment you turn your head.”

My Rating - 4 stars!
