Blog Tour Review: The Mistake by Elle Kennedy

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.

Elle Kennedy has nailed it. Again. I am in love (read: full on obsessed) with The Deal, book one in her Off-Campus Series. My expectations for The Mistake, book two, were completely unattainable. I was nervous with excitement to get my hands on this story. At the same time I was hesitant to crack it open for fear that Logan's story wouldn't live up to the epic greatness that is Garrett Graham. To my relief, Elle Kennedy has delivered another masterpiece and fans will not be disappointed getting to know John Logan and Grace Ivers.

Grace is a character I easily related to. She's studious and driven but doesn't stand out in a crowd. She spends her days in the overpowering shadow of her childhood best friend, following along with whatever trouble Ramona drags her into. It's freshman year at Briar, and Grace is determined to become more confident and be noticed. I adored her. Her vulnerability. Her wit. Her self-preservation and growth when the trust she invested in people was broken. She is a stunning and compassionate character who you can't help but love.

John Logan is a mind I've been dying to crack since I met him in The Deal. He's reeling from unrequited feelings for his best friend's girl and sleeping his way through the female population in order to forget her. Enter Grace Ivers. The quirky freshman he meets by chance but who intrigues him and provides the solace he had been seeking in so many women before her. But nothing comes easy for Logan and soon he's scrambling to hold on to the one person he didn't realize he needed until she was gone.

Readers are going to fall hard for The Mistake. I could not let this story go. It was every bit as captivating as The Deal. The Mistake is a fresh and unique stand alone. Garrett and Logan may be best friends, but their stories and struggles are vastly different. I laughed, swooned, and fretted as Grace and Logan discovered strength buried deep inside themselves. 

My heart is both full and sad now that I've finished. I will never tire of these characters and will always be hungry for more int his series. I cannot wait for the next installment, and I'm sure Elle Kennedy will deliver a phenomenal read once again. Get your hands on Elle Kennedy's Off-Campus Series immediately!
