Make sure to read THE DEAL first - you do NOT want to miss meeting Garrett ☺

Hes 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 hes worth a second chance.

Now hes 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 shes 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? Hell have to work for it. This time around, shell be the one in the drivers seatand she plans on driving him wild.


 This is Logan's story! ☺☺☺
We already met him in THE DEAL - where his best buddy, roommate & hockey-team-Captain, Garrett found his Happy Ever After with Hannah....
But through all the time it took Garrett & Hannah to get together - Logan was watching and lusting after Hannah himself :( Poor guy. You can't be in love with your best friend's girl. That's why he's been trying to drown his sorrows in alcohol and random hook-ups for the past weeks....
But it's not really working.
Until he accidentally knocks on Grace's dorm-room door. Expecting to find his buddy Danny's party.
And this shy and slightly ODC-ish girl is surprisingly just what he needs to forget about Hannah.

She's - of course - still a virgin in her first year of College. And she's also very shy, and awkward and doesn't have a filter - especially when talking to hot guys ☺

She obviously knows who Logan is - he's one of the stars of the College's Hockey team and ridiculously hot!!

She knows all that because her roommate has been lusting after one of Logan's friends (Dean) for a while now - and Grace keeps getting dragged to every game!

They very quickly become friends - not really with benefits - but with loooots of sexiness ☺
But of course Logan isn't sure about this thing with Grace - what if he's only using her to get over Hannah?

Some lies and misunderstandings and problems in Logan's family add lots of trouble to the whole story.

Will the adorable virgin be able to turn the hot athlete away from his serial hook-ups to a committed relationship?


 Nope . . . I'm not telling you ☺


Such an amazing book.
I already loved THE DEAL sooo much - but this one is even better...

Logan is soooo hot and sexy and sweet.
And Grace is so adorable and together they are just perfect. Perfect for each other.

But of course we don't have the instant Happy End - that would be boring.

It was a really interesting story. With lots of funny & adorable moments!!!

"You've always been a player, but dude, you've hooked up with five chicks this week."
"So it's Thursday. Five girls in four days. Do the fucking math, John."
Oh shit. He first-named me. Tucker only calls me John when I've really pissed him off.

... ♥ ...
"Stop asking me questions."
"No problem. Do you want to ask me some?"
"Okeydokey. I'll keep being the question-asker then."
"Did you just say okeydokey?"
"Yup. Was that adorable enough to change your mind about that date?"

Lots of sexy scenes 


I loved every minute of the book - I finished it in one night!!! (Might've been early morning already ☺)

A tiny little thing that bothered me a bit - Elle uses the expression HOOK-UP waaaay too much.
I stopped counting after 39548 ☺ Maybe a few other similiar expressions here and there would've been better.


THE MISTAKE was such an amazingly adorable & sexy & cute & funny, but also serious Romance - It will SOOO not be a mistake to buy it (ha-ha - see what I did there ← ☺)
You will soooo want your own Logan after reading it!!! ♥

And now hurry Elle - I want to read Dean's story (with Sabrina??) and Tucker's and who's left?? I need more of those amazing guys!!! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

This is the second book in the Off Campus series, and to get the the full impact of the story in The Mistake, you should read The Deal first.

We met John Logan - just call him Logan  - in The Deal, as he is the main man Garrett's best friend.

Well, now Logan is the main man, and this is his story.

Hockey star Logan is still smarting from things at the end of the deal.  Healing a bit of a broken heart, he is retreating from his friends to avoid more hurt.  Well, retreating from his friends, but still whoring his way through the girls at the university.

Grace's first run in with Logan nothing to write home about, their second accidental meeting changes things for both herself and Logan in more ways than one.

I adore Grace.  She is smart, sexy, and love the interesting facts she comes up with when she gets nervous and starts babbling.  It is like verbal incontinence as things just tumble out of her mouth!  

Logan, Logan, Logan.  He could be such a jerk at times, but then at others he could be so beautiful and heartbreaking, you just wanted to give him a big hug. There was so much more to Logan than you think you are going to get.

I loved that Grace didn't just fall into Logan's bed like all the other ladies seemed to do.  If it is worth having, it is worth working for, and boy did she make him work!

There is a great scene with "a list" that had me really laugh. I mean real belly laughs.

There were times I laughed, there were times I teared up while our lovelies were kind of treading water, trying to find their way to a real relationship.  Oh, and when we get to the sexy times, they were seeeexxxy.  All those man-whoring ways mean that Logan really knows what he is doing!

There was one character that I felt quite violent towards, and it is not the one you would think it would be.  Not going to mention which one as I don't want to taint anyones opinions, but gah, if I could have reached into the book and throat punched them, it would have happened!

I have really been drawn into this series, so I hope we don't have too long to wait for me.  Please please please let it be Dean's story!

I have to say, I think I liked Logan's story better than Garrett's in The Deal - and wasn't sure if that was going to happen.
