My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron

Two secrets. One bet. Who will break first? 

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 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, so she needs him gone before it's too late. 

Hunter himself has been burned before, but Taylor's sexy laugh and refusal to let him get away with anything make her irresistible. Determined not to be kicked out of her life without a fight, Hunter proposes a bet: if she can convince him she either truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment—and leave her alone. 

But when the man behind Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces, 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.

Read the book on very rainy day. You just can't wait to keep reading to see how the characters are going to evolve and what each is hiding. I would recommend for those folks who loved "Beautiful Disaster" or "Slammed"

This book drew me in from the first punch, and never let me go. I freaking love Hunter and Taylor. I love that their story was so much more than the typical boy meets girl, they fall in love, they break up, and then they get back together. Their love story was real!

I am not sure if I loved or hated this book. At times it was cute and funny, other times it was just down right annoying. If you can look past annoying banter that lasts literally throughout the entire thing, then it's a good read.

Immature. These are suppose to be college age people with tramatic family issues that should have made them more mature having endure their past conflicts, however, NOT! The dialogue was so painfully immature to read, the plot was transparent, and the female protagonist was just plain annoying. The depth of feelings I was suppose to experience for the main characters just wasn't there, the writer didn't convince me. Two stars, because, I love a man who's devoted, Hunter, the books only redeeming quality. S.A.K.

I really wanted to love this book. A lot of my friends read it and raved and raved about it. And I did like it, but it just didn't wow me. I also had a really tough time connecting with Taylor. I understood that she had something traumatic happen to her, but I felt like she was unnecessarily mean to Hunter. That really bothered me.  My overall feelings about her never really changed throughout the book.  The best part about the book for me was Hunter. He was funny, sexy, and insightful. He was so patient and supportive of Taylor. My heart hurt for him and the tragedy that he dealt with too. I would have liked to have seen more focus on his past.  Overall, like I said, I liked it enough to read the whole book. The love story was sweet and it had some steamy parts, but just fell short for me. I've heard rumors that there will be another book and I am curious to see what Cameron would do with their story from here. Will I rush to read it? Probably not, but I'll definitely check it out.

Reminded me that beauty isn't always something you see with your eyes, nor is it in the package Hollywood portrays. Forced me to look beyond my own insecurities and realize we are all a little different and that is okay!

Very sweet book. Loved both Hunter and Taylor and thought their pasts were original and different than the usual troubled pasts. Also, particularly loved their "rooming arrangement." It felt cozy to read about it. The whole apartment situation sounded like a big family. Also, I liked how he slowly got under her skin and everything went smoothly from there. The only flaw is that the ending was a tad anticlimatic because I would have liked better a showdown than all that legal stuff. Still, Hunter Zaccadelli stole my heart with his wit and sexyness. I especially loved how they got together, from hating each other, to bantering, to leaning on each other, to fighting again but never really giving up on each other. It was a really sweet read... ... and a definite re-read!

Taylor and Hunter met when he became their roommate in college. She was shocked that the school would not even give her notice about his arrival. They get along like oil and water as they try to survive living in the same room. As they get to know one another, and even have a class together, they discover they actually have things in common. And when he cooks.... well everyone is happy. Hunter is just as closed off as she is, as they both have pasts that were filled with pain and secrets. Hunter also has the hots for Taylor. She is attracted to him as well, just does not want him to know it. Everyone around them sees it though. This was such an amazing book about love, loss, pain, and even sacrifice. I started out hating Hunter right along with Taylor but soon fell under his spell also.

Some Good Components But Didn't Work For Me Everyone expects to experience new things in college, but most don’t think one of those things will be a dorm-assigned roommate of the opposite sex. Taylor understood she lived in a co-ed dorm. She did not think that meant she’d open the door to find Hunter on the other side. Tattooed, guitar-carrying Hunter walks in and Taylor is immediately up in arms. When housing isn’t willing to re-assign Hunter, Taylor and Hunter agree on an unusual bet to determine if Hunter has to move out. Taylor must prove she loves or hates Hunter, to his satisfaction, and he’ll find another place to live. Until then, Taylor is stuck with him and his flirtation. I am partial to new adult, contemporary romance stories with a little bit of darkness to them. But unfortunately, MY FAVORITE MISTAKE fell short. It had all the right ingredients, but it just didn’t work for me. For one, I found Taylor annoying. She punched Hunter within minutes of meeting him, and Hunter seemed to find that, as well as everything else, charming about her. Second, Taylor seemed to think the only way she could convince housing to remove Hunter from her room was to lie and say he’d sexually harassed her (which thankfully she wasn’t willing to do). However, she hints from the very beginning that she has experienced something dark of the sexual variety in her younger years and that information alone, if revealed to the head of housing, should have been clear grounds to find her another roommate. But it never seemed to occur to her to reveal this tidbit when she meets with the head of housing in a private meeting and is asked if this is a personality conflict or something more threatening. I understand completely that this was not something she was open to sharing, but I felt like between Taylor and her mother freaking out over the roommate, it would have at least been mentioned as an option. Not to mention both of her other two roommates offered to switch with her so that she wouldn’t have to be the one sharing a room with Hunter, but she never even entertained the idea. Taylor made broad statements about who Hunter was as a person and how he viewed other people before she’d spent any time alone with him or talked to him long enough to be able to make that observation. It seemed like an indirect way for Ms. Cameron to build up Hunter but it didn’t seem realistic since I’d seen no indication Taylor could have actually observed this for herself. Also, Hunter was unrealistically perfect from his cooking for the entire floor to his patience with Taylor and as a result he never felt believable. I did like the emotions shown once Taylor finally had her big reveal. The story felt like it added layers of depth once Taylor opened up and I appreciated that it felt true to Taylor’s story. I also liked that MY FAVORITE MISTAKE flowed well from start to finish. I had a lot of hope for MY FAVORITE MISTAKE and gave it 2.5 stars (rounded down to 2 for reviewing purposes). While I felt like it didn’t reach it’s full potential, some people will love the concept and may not have the same issues with Taylor that I did. **Complimentary copy provided by the author/publisher for an honest review.

Hunter almost reminded me of a young Kellan Kyle. I loved the character from the minute you meet him. He is the sexy smart ass wrapped up with that bad boy charm that most girls find irresistible, well except Taylor. Taylor drove me nuts. Sure she had some traumatic happen to her, but she took it to an extreme. It took her until about 70% in to the book to soften to this boy who was throwing himself at her (money,physically and emotionally...hell he plays guitar and dances) and for some reason everyone saw it, but her. I wanted to shake her for wasting so much time especially after hearing Hunters secret. His blew hers away. I could see why he had night terrors and I would gladly climb in his bed to comfort him. The secondary characters were also enjoyable, especially when showing the main character and his underlying sensitive heart despite his "asshat" exterior....I love you Hunter Zaccadelli, more than the stars!
