{Review} The Mistake by Elle Kennedy

The Mistake by Elle Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

GENRE: New Adult
THEME: Contemporary, Sport


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’m very much loving the Off-Campus series, it just keeps getting better and better! Kennedy easily matches up opposites and creates this unbelievably passionate bond between the two. There is heartbreak, growth, romance and learning how much family support matters in life and I loved every minute.

The Mistake follows John Logan, a passionate hockey player and a known playboy. But Logan is dealing with the fact he is crushing on his best friends girlfriend and that his life of hockey he may have to give up for family. But then Logan meets Grace, who baffles him at first and he cant seem to get her off his mind. After some ups and downs Logan has to earn his way to Graces heart as well he needs to figure out if he’ll truly have to let his dream of pro hockey go.

Logan is what you would think a typical joke is, good looking, great at his sport and not someone who thinks highly of his future. But Logan is actually so much more, he love hockey but also would do anything to help his family, and when the right girl pops in his life he knows he cant let her go. I loved watching Logan grow out of his playboy status and realize he’s better than what he pretended to be. He’s not perfect but he has friends who support him and Grace who believes his dream is something he should not give up on.

Grace is a sweet freshman who usually catches the eye of a guy but then she opens her mouth and babble comes out. Her nervous habit doesn’t chase away Logan, hes more intrigued by her but also isnt sure where is heart is at the moment. Grace is more of Logans guide and their passionate moments together change both of them. I loved the chemistry between the two, Logan isnt shy and Grace opens up drastically.

Overall this was my favorite of the two in this series so far, the readers will be happy to see how the previous couple is doing too. It was nice to pinpoint what occurred in the first book with Logan’s feelings towards Hannah and realize its actual meaning. The pace was a constant flow of humor, romance and family drama, that bundled into a fantastic story. Now it’s on to Dean’s story, he seems like hes going to be a big challenge but I cant wait to see what Kennedy does with him.
