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 towork for it. This time around, she’ll be the one in the driver’s seat…and she plans on driving him wild.
I have read other college romance stories wherein I’m just “meh” and cannot wait for the story to wrap up. But ever since I picked up, “The Deal”, I knew that I would be following this series. The second book can actually be read as a standalone but I still think it’s better to be acquainted with the whole cast so that everyone in the story is familiar.
This is the second book in Elle Kennedy’s Off Campus series. It follows the story of Grace and Logan whom we have already met in The Deal. Logan is still pining over Hannah, who is his best friend’s girl. Definitely off limits and out of the question, Logan decides to turn his attention and time elsewhere. A mistake in getting a room number lands Logan in Grace’s dorm room and soon enough, he finds that he cannot get her out of his mind.
“Don’t waste your time obsessing over stupid actions of stupid people”
The Mistake is made in equal parts of steam, cheese and humor. I love this combination so damn much that I found myself diving into “The Score” right after this. The thing about Elle’s writing is that she puts you at ease and makes you feel part of the banter. The characters are lovable and relatable. I may have liked The Deal better but this is still a great read.
