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.
My Favorite Mistake is a book from the New Adult genre which are books who have protagonists in college. I am so loving this genre and am happy to say that we are getting to see more and more books coming up. The New Adult books just seem more realistic and fun to me and My Favorite Mistake was no exception.
It starts off by Hunter and Taylor getting paired as roommates. Taylor wants Hunter to leave and so Hunter makes a bet with her that if she can convince him she truly loves him or hates him, he'll leave the apartment. Thus begins the journey between Taylor and Hunter.
Hunter and Taylor as individual characters were really nice and likeable. Each of them have their own obstacles to overcome and they both have a crappy past which makes them hesitant towards the future. It was great to see their independence and how they slowly started growing close to each other. The best part was the time each of them took to getting to know one another in spite of the crazy attraction between them.
The chemistry between Hunter and Taylor was totally off the charts. I loved their banter and the romance. Their other roommates and friends make a great cast of supporting characters. There were just so many times I laughed while reading this book! There were some really cute tidbits in conversations which just made me love the book even more.
Chelsea M Cameron is a wonderful author and I will definitely be looking into more books by her. Her writing is smooth and the story flows perfectly in the whole college atmosphere. Once you start reading My Favorite Mistake, it is difficult to put down. If you want to read a New Adult book which will make you feel happy and satisfied at the end of it, I definitely recommend giving My Favorite Mistake a try.
