My Favorite Mistake

My Favorite Mistake
by: Chelsea M. Cameron

Should you read it?: Maybe
...if you liked Beautiful Disaster.
Category: New Adult

Okay, so first of all, this genre is hard for me. I usually enjoy them & they're such quick reads, but I cannot get over the embarrassment I have over the covers! These are not erotica at all and the covers make them look like you're going to be reading about nothing but sex. This book in particular has one specific scene & the rest is just general sexual tension. I have to read these on my kindle because the covers just embarrass me so bad.

So this is about Taylor and Hunter. They are both students at UMaine and through a mixup in the housing department, they end up in a co-ed apartment with 2 other girls. The other 2 girls have been rooming together already so of course Taylor and Hunter end up sharing a room. Of course that makes for a fun storyline because Taylor is so against the idea of sharing a room with a boy she doesn't know and Hunter totally loves it. There is definitely sexual tension & I loved the banter between the two  of them. They both come from a sort-of dark past (which seems to be a theme in new adult books) and they have to learn how to maneuver a relationship with their baggage.

Things I liked
The whole attraction thing with a coed roommate makes for some fun.

I liked their banter, like I said above, they just bicker and I thought it was funny.

I really enjoyed the music that is discussed throughout it. It was my style.

Things I didn't
I hate hate hate the cover. I actually found a less embarrassing cover to put on this post because I was so embarrassed by the one on the cover of the book on my Kindle.

I didn't really identify with their issues in the past, which I guess is okay because I don't have to have gone through that to enjoy a book with characters who have. But at the same time, I just felt like it was a little melodramatic and overkill.

Overall: A fun and fast read.

Book 35 of 50
