My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron

Wednesday, October 24, 2012
Synopsis: 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

Review: After reading Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire & Easy by Tammara Webber I was definitely looking for my next hit of angsty romance. While I enjoyed a good portion of My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea Cameron, I couldn’t fall into it like I did with Beautiful Disaster & Easy. The thing that threw me off about this book was Taylor. Taylor was so angry and it didn’t take much to set her off. While I understand Taylor had a difficult secret/past to deal with, she just couldn’t handle daily life. She was like a ticking time bomb waiting to go off. Hunter on the other hand seemed easy going, smooth, but even he annoyed me at times. If a girl straight up punches you in the face (and you hardly know her) is that really going to attract you more to her? Wouldn’t you steer clear of her? Or if you’re just going to stick around and antagonize her (because obviously she has some issues) you just make yourself look like an ass. And although that can be a quality to some people, I just found it frustrating. There were definitely things I liked about this book, Cameron’s writing was easy to read and it flowed well. Although Taylor and Hunter were annoying, they were memorable to say the least. As I said before the premise of the book is fun and interesting, although I doubt that such a thing would happen at a University, I can go with it. Overall, I think it was Taylor who really hurt the story for me. She was immature, dramatic and just way too angry. I wanted to like her but she frustrated me. A lot. I would recommend this book because although I didn’t like Taylor, I think others might. She does have a fierceness about her. Lol
