I must admit it didn't keep me as gripped as other books I've read such as Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McQuire or Easy by Tamarra Webber or The Soulfinder Series by Joss Stirling. I found it boring and dragging in places. I felt these characters weren't true to themselves. They both had massive secrets. Taylor had only told one person about it, then by the end of the book, it seems she has told everyone. I didn't get why she found it so hard to tell Hunter, but then once she had, she was able to tell all her friends.
The ending of the book wasn't great. I preferred the beginning of the book more than any other time of the story. I loved the banter between Taylor and Hunter. I also enjoyed it when they blew hot and cold with each other.
I really did enjoy this book. I would recommend it if you liked books such as Always You and Almost: A Love Story. I won't be reading it again but I might check out other books by Chelsea M Cameron. 4 out of 5!
I hadn't heard of My Favourite Mistake until my blogging bestie read and loved it. I was trying my hardest to not read it and read my review books - like I was supposed to but I'm weak, lol so of course I read and yes I loved it.
New adult books seem to be very popular right now and really, they're fast becoming a favourite, and there's a reason they are; it's because they're so DAMN HOT. Author, Chelsea M. Cameron really didn't disappoint and My Favourite Mistake was an intense, suspenseful and entertaining read.
Taylor and Hunter have an interesting relationship, one that's based on hate, lust and attraction. From the moment Taylor sets eyes on Hunter, she hates him and tries to everything in her power to get him kicked out of her apartment. Once she starts spending time with him, she slowly opens up to him and really, underneath all that hate is lust and love. Hunter's very honest and open with Taylor and it's clear he's attracted to her but the problems from his and Taylor's pasts get in the way. Here are two characters that have deep, dark and painful secrets and they come together in a entertaining and beautiful way.
The secondary characters were great too. I really enjoyed how the author gave each one their own little love story - and if anything, I would have loved to read a book from these characters too.
The only reason I didn't rate this book top marks was because I felt it needed a little something more towards the end. The author closed the book very well but I guess I was expecting for a little bit more, but don't let this put you off the book, it was still great and definitely worth a read.
Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed within the first few pages but as I was on a train and needed something to read, I carried on with it. To start with, the main character Taylor is a bit crazy which didn't make her the most likeable person in the world. The plot revolves around her and two other friends who live together at college in co-ed dorms. When a guy turns up at the door and says he's their new roommate she completely overreacts. I mean, she knew a guy would be allowed to live there and if she didn't like that, she shouldn't have moved in! Then, when the guy (Hunter) gets a bit too close for comfort she punches him right in the face instead of telling him to back off. That's not okay in my book especially as he didn't really do anything wrong.
Hunter on the other hand I did like but then compared to Taylor anyone would have been nice. The thing with Hunter is that Taylor sees him as, and calls him, an ass. He's not really though. He does come across as quite cocky and a bit full of himself but he's funny with it at the same time. Even when Taylor is either beating him up a bit, calling him names and generally being mean to him, Hunter is incredibly patient. He does the nicest things like sings for her, cooks amazing dinners and has beautiful jewellery made for her. I think if anything, Hunter is probably a bit of a push over.
The plot didn't really do a lot for me. As mentioned in the plot synopsis, Hunter makes a bet with Taylor that could result in him being homeless. Taylor only cares about herself in this situation and wants him gone.Read more ›
I'm giving this book a 3.5 rating, out of 5.
I've read some great New Adult titles lately, unfortunately the romance portion of this novel disappointed me.
WRITING AND CHARACTERS
I was a fan of the distinctive side characters in this novel and Taylor's p.o.v narration was fun (although her character was quite immature). Her roommates were a riot and I really enjoyed reading the scenes with them in; I guess the best part of this novel for me was the humour - despite the fact that the plot was designed to offer up quite the emotional roller coaster, it was the funny lines that kept me turning the pages. Both Taylor and Hunter were given secretive, dark back stories which helped keep a sense of suspense and intrigue throughout as well. Hunter's characterisation was inconsistent though, it was like the author had just decided to chuck `sexy' attributes at him whenever they occurred to her during the writing process. I also enjoyed the university setting and the dormitory atmosphere, but I was a little confused about all the different modules Taylor was taking (French, History etc), when her major was Women's Studies.
I wish somebody would re-edit this book and properly format the dialogue in it however. As it stands there are numerous incidents when dialogue quotes are closed, a new paragraph begins with new open quotation marks, and yet it's the same character speaking!Read more ›
