My Favorite Mistake
My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron
Taylor Caldwell can't decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him.
On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome, blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitar-playing bundle of bad boy. Maybe that's why Taylor's afraid of falling in love with him, or anyone else. She doesn't want to get burned, and even though her other roommates adore him, she wants him gone before it's too late.
Hunter himself has been been burned before, but the fact that Taylor calls him out on his crap and has the sexiest laugh ever make him decide maybe love isn't a lost cause. They make a bet: if she can convince him she truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment--and leave her alone. The problem is, the more time they spend together, the less she hates him, and the more she moves toward love.
But when the man who holds the key to Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces and threatens to wreck everything, she has to decide: trust Hunter with her greatest secret, or do everything in her power to win that bet and drive him away forever.
I loved this book. I was so attached to it, and read it in just a couple hours. Being in college, I really enjoyed reading a book that takes place in college. While parts of my life were very different from the characters in the book, there were also some things that I can relate to. It is always fun to read about someone close to your age.
The plot was very interesting and though somewhat predictable, kept me interested. I loved the romance aspect. Taylor and Hunter's chemistry literally leaps off the page from the first chapter. I really enjoyed their interactions and seeing the sweet side of Hunter.
The ending kind of disappointed me though. I honestly don't know why. It was a good ending, I think I was just expecting a little bit more. Other than that, I really loved this book and would recommend it. There are some language and sex scenes in it, so I would not recommend it for younger teens.
I received this book for review in return for an honest review.
