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 w

This series is 100% NA greatness! It’s got everything you would want in an NA read. It’s funny, sexy, sweet and the characters are not at all annoying which seems like a rarity in most NA books anymore. Elle Kennedy really excels at writing these college/hockey books. The Deal was fantastic for me, but I have to say… I loved The Mistake EVEN MORE than the first book. As much as I liked Garrett, Logan really just made this book for me.

2 stars!

Earlier this year, I read and ADORED book 1 in this series The Deal. It was everything I could ever ask for in a NA romance – fun, entertaining, and truly a breath of fresh air with likable main characters, witty banter that had me grinning from ear to ear, and a believable romance that wasn’t just hinged on a heroine having big boobs or a reformed playboy hero like so many NA books today. Not only did I fall in love with the story and characters, I also found in Elle Kennedy a new autho

Another wonderful addition to Elle Kennedy's Off Campus series. Delivered with Elle's trademark humor and vivid characterization, The Mistake is another fantastic read for me.

John Logan is the hot, handsome and popular college jock who is pining for his best friend's girl. Since she's off limits, he turns his amorous attentions elsewhere. Yes, John Logan is a bit of dog. Then he meet Grace Ivers. Grace is a freshman and a virgin. Yeah, I know what you're thinking. Ugh, not another vir

A.m.a.z.e.b.a.l.l.s!! Plain and simple! I read The Deal a few months ago and while I enjoyed it, it didn't rock my world (I guess it's because I wasn't into NA romances back then). But after stumbling upon Pearl's and Nicoleta's awesome reviews (click their names to read them!) I decided to continue with Logan's story and oh boy I am so glad I did!

There are always high expectations when you read a sequel to book that was so good that you worry if the next one will manage to keep up. Well, no worries here, because The Mistake was as fabulous. I don't know how the author does it but she, again, managed to deliver great story with great characters. And I'm gonna repeat myself here, this is how NA should be done! Now, excuse me, while Snoopy will do the dance again.

You know what I love? A sexy bad boy. Know what I love even more? A good grovel. What else? A sassy and sharp witted heroine that makes the sexy bad boy work for it. So this book? My golden trifecta.

Technically I am old enough to be Logan's grandmother!! I just googled "youngest" mother in the world ... OK, will take some of those entries on Wikipedia with a grain of salt. I really enjoyed the first book in this series.
But, I did lower my expectations a bit starting this one. Why? Well, I have been burned in the past with too high expectations with a series.

I really enjoyed this...just not as much as The Deal...which is odd as I truly enjoyed both Logan and Grace just as much - if not more - than Garrett and Hannah.

So far I have been very happy with Kennedy's female leads. They are level headed young women. And, most importantly, they manage to avoid causing me to harbor homicidal tendencies toward them - a seemingly tremendous feat these days it seems.

I really enjoyed this book. It had some lovable characters, a few laugh out loud moments, and definitely several panty melting inducing scenes as well.

Although I found this an enjoyable read, I couldn't help but compare it to "The Deal", and find that it didn't quite measure up. I didn't like that Logan was so hung up on Hannah, and then the realization later on just made me roll my eyes a bit.

Earlier this year I had the extreme pleasure of reading The Deal by Elle Kennedy ( I blatantly stated my admiration of how she took a genre, New Adult, and made it work for someone who usually doesn't gravitate to it. I went on to talk about how she used all of her talent to make her characters not whine or manipulate to get what they wanted and just "manned up" time and time again.

The only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because I liked the first book better.

This series aged really well. I think I like it even better than the first time I read it.

It has been a long time since I read 'The Deal' and I was worried that I would have forgotten important details. Fortunately, that didn't happen. Although it is part of a series, 'The Mistake' can be read as a standalone.

This time around, the focus is on John Logan, aka Logan, and Grace. Like the couple that started this series, the two seem to be an unlikely pairing. He's a popular, star hockey player on campus, well-known for sleeping his way through the female student population. She's a shy

Grace was......not annoying at all!

Yep, still shocked!

I love the banter between the guys......Garrett, Logan, Dean, Tucker! I can't wait for the rest of the books in the series!

Another steamy, swoon worthy, romantic comedy from Elle Kennedy. I have really enjoyed this series so far. Logan and Grace were great characters and they shared some wonderful moments, but I felt like there was something missing, and I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it was their issues and how quickly they were resolved, or maybe my expectations were too high. idk. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, I just think it had the potential to be phenomenal.

I think Logan's mistake was just right. Nothing irreparable and nothing meek enough to think Grace was overreacting. There's something about Logan that makes you want to comfort the sexy dude :) I like the level of maturity in the whole cast. NA books tend to have a fair amount of teeny bopper nonsense and Elle tends to still cover it in others but her characters rise above it. This book was sexy and it was a build up so the character growth was great. Definitely looking forward to Dean :-p ...more

Just simply loved this book, such a great read. College junior and sexy hockey star, Logan, meets Grace Ivers, the pretty "girl next-door" freshman, by mistake. And from there, their relationship grows, stalls and restarts
