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.
Okay…so…WOW. Yes Giselle, you really are quite suave with words.
Alright, let me just start this review off by saying I never thought any other book in this series would be able to beat The Deal. For those of you who do not already know, The Deal is the first book in this incredibly sexy, charming, and hilarious series by Elle Kennedy. In The Deal, we meet snarky, hilarious Hannah Wells and sexy, sweet Garrett Graham, but we also meet John freaking Logan. The Mistake is his story.
Logan is the player, the guy who sleeps with one- okay…five too many girls. He seems like your typical jock that can’t keep it in his pants (so he kind of is like this, but wait for it!), but like most people in this world, Logan has his own story, and the number of girls he sleeps with doesn’t define his life and who he is. Logan’s story is both heart-wrenching, inspiring, and shows how much depth one seemingly shallow person can have. John Logan is just so so so swoon-worthy, and no words of mine can truly do this man justice. Only Elle Kennedy’s words will be capable of making one truly fall head over skates for this player. 😉
Grace Ivers. Grace is only a freshman when she meets college junior and hockey star, John Logan, so this information alone already hints at trouble ahead. But when Grace comes back for her sophomore year after- you guessed it, The Mistake, she is no longer that doe-eyed freshman fawning after Briar’s sexiest hockey star. Nuh-uh, Grace is a spitfire, one that Logan has his sights set on winning over, again.
All this equates to a recipe for: witty banter, hilarious scenes that I’m amazed Elle Kennedy managed to come up with ( I mean that list!? Come on, that was superb and so freaking funny), so much tension you’ll be feeling it with them.
Throughout the course of The Mistake, not only is the chemistry between the two something that is clearly evident, but the growth Logan and Grace experience as individuals is so beautiful to read. I just have so much love for these two, and pretty much every character in the Off-Campus series.
So why wouldn’t you want to read a book that is filled with witty banter, sexual tension, incredible hockey players and their bromances, a girl who’s a bit of a spitfire but also incredibly relatable to those who might not be, and a ton of hilarious scenes that will have you grinning from ear to ear?
Don’t answer that, it was obviously rhetorical because I totally expect you to read both The Deal and The Mistake, in that order. <3
“Don’t waste your time obsessing over the stupid actions of stupid people.”
John Logan has become my ultimate boyfriend.
My heart beats faster for this amazing book. The Mistake took a turn I didn’t expect. Everything that happened, everything that went on throughout the book, it was great! Amazing! Superb!
It was great to see my fave characters again. The boys better than ever: Garrett, Dean, Tucker and our main actor tonight: John Logan. These four take my heart which each passing book. I want them all to have a happy ending, and I get so happy whenever I get to read a scene with all of them. They make me laugh and their friendship is easy and cute as hell.
John Logan made my knees weak. Since The Deal, you become so intrigued by this character and you want to know so much more of Logan. (Well I did). It was so thrilling to get inside his head and experience everything he went through. We got to know so many things we needed to know to understand him more. His characterization made me grin so big! *swoons*
“Every time I hear someone refer to her [Piper] as a slut, I threaten a beat-down, because what the f***? Most of the dudes I know have screwed their way through college, and nobody bats an eye when they do it.”
Thank you, Logan. I mean I love this about him. Because he’s totally right. So WHAT IF GIRLS SLEEP WITH LOTS OF PEOPLE? SO WHAT? IF THEY LIKE IT, THEY CAN DO WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT. Society is so screwed up to label things such as this. And girls get the worst labels. Logan is such an amazing character and I’m so happy we got more characters that think “no-no” when talking about slut-shaming. We get so many books with male characters slut-shaming the main female or other girls in the book, and it’s not okay. It’s a horrible act and it’s disgusting.
And Grace: Grace made me laugh and smile and she was so adorable. I love their relationship together and how easy you could see that they worked together. She was such a breath of fresh air that whenever she was in the room, I just wanted to hug her and yell “go girl!” She was also a very strong woman and her inner strength told me so much about her.
Level of sexiness: 100000000000000000000% [DON’T COMPUTE IT’S SO HOT IT’S MELTING]
The Deal (Off-Campus #1)
She’s about to make a deal with the college bad boy…
Hannah Wells has finally found someone who turns her on. But while she might be confident in every other area of her life, she’s carting around a full set of baggage when it comes to sex and seduction. If she wants to get her crush’s attention, she’ll have to step out of her comfort zone and make him take notice…even if it means tutoring the annoying, childish, cocky captain of the hockey team in exchange for a pretend date.
…and it’s going to be oh so good
All Garrett Graham has ever wanted is to play professional hockey after graduation, but his plummeting GPA is threatening everything he’s worked so hard for. If helping a sarcastic brunette make another guy jealous will help him secure his position on the team, he’s all for it. But when one unexpected kiss leads to the wildest sex of both their lives, it doesn’t take long for Garrett to realize that pretend isn’t going to cut it. Now he just has to convince Hannah that the man she wants looks a lot like him.
