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.

If you all saw my review for The Deal, then you know it rocked my world.  After finishing it, I was ecstatic to get back into the lives of these amazing hockey players.  I loved Logan in The Deal so I couldn’t wait to see him get his happy ending.  It doesn’t take long to learn that he may never get the happy ending he longs for and the one that he deserves.

Logan may put out the happy go lucky playboy attitude, but deep down, he’s hiding some very dark secrets about his life and his future from everyone, including his best friends.  John Logan is very different from the persona that he tries to portray.  Sure, he is a playboy when we first meet him, but that soon turns around when Grace enters his world.  He also knows how to WOOOO (pun intended & if you’ve read the book, you’ll get it hehe :P), I was very impressed with his wooing skills.

I really enjoyed Grace as a character, well later on in the book.  At first she kind of annoyed me with the way she was with her ‘best friend’ Ramona.  I use quotation marks because Ramona is….UGH. But, when Grace finally decides to focus on herself and what she wants, that’s when I started liking her.

My only problem with this book was there did seem to be a few character inconsistencies.  Just minor stuff, like at the beginning Grace was using the word, frickin’, then  Grace was using the actual F word and then a few pages later she was back to frickin’.  I know that isn’t a big deal but it was just something I noticed.  I also felt like things progressed VERY fast between Logan and Grace, View Spoiler »

Overall, The Mistake was really good, but I wasn’t as addicted or as enthralled as I was when reading The Deal.

  1. OMG Ramona drove me crazy! I really hated that girl so much.
    I thought things escalated pretty quickly between them too, but I liked how much she made him work in the second part of their relationship. It would have bothered me if she had taken him so quickly.
    I’m glad you enjoyed this overall!
    Lovely review!

  2. I have to say The Deal will always be the best one of the series but I recently read the latest one, The Score, and OMW CLIFFHANGER ALERT! I NEED THE NEXT ONE RIGHT NOW. *flails*
    Ughhh, Ramona, I really really hated her and her stupid crocodile tears!
    Lovely review 🙂
