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.
I couldn’t put this book down. Shocker? Totally not. (Fun fact: This is my favorite book is the whole series).
3 words. I like it.
4 words. I really love it.
5 words. I CAN FRIGGIN’ MARRY IT!!
Highlights of why this book is perfect….
THE WRITING — Elle Kennedy didn’t just do her job well, she brought a rocket and strapped her words onto it. Well, probably not. But I can promise you roof-blowing-due-to-laughing-so-hard, head-meet-wall-because-you-can’t-seem-to-take-your-eyes-off-it, or losing-sleep-to-read kind of writing. It’s witty, and funny, and (Mmm…) steamy, all aspects that are needed in an amazing NA book.
NON-DRAMA 101 — You don’t need stereotype drama and petty gossips to write a book, dear world. Approved and qualified by The Mistake.
THE BROMANCE — When hot guys meet hot guys, stuff like bromance tends to explode and spread around.
“I’m comfortable enough with my hetero status to say that if I did play for the other team? I wouldn’t just fuck Garrett Graham, I’d marry him.”
HOCKEY-FRIGGIN’-PLAYERS — Cute one, mind you. You can never go wrong with extremely kissable, attractive, good-looking, [continue the synonyms] hockey players. And that “Mmm…” cover 😉
AND GUMMY BEAR SESSIONS — In which, I have to agree with you Logan, you should down on your knee right there.
“Why would I? Seriously, what guy turns down Die Hard? The only thing that could sweeten this deal is if you offered me some booze.”
“I don’t have any.” She stops to think. “But I’ve got a whole bag of gummy bears hidden in my desk drawer.”
“Marry me,” I say instantly.”
And some cons…
Ok, maybe there is none. Well, if you count slamming your head against the door because the intense reading, then there is a con.
So basically, The Mistake is…
