My Favorite Mistake | [Chelsea M. Cameron]

My Favorite Mistake

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Mega Swoon Worthy New Adult Romance"

    College student Taylor is forced to have Hunter(a guy) as her new roommate. Taylor becomes a bit freaked out by this since she doesn't trust guys. Hunter uses his witty flirty banter and from there the story truly begins. Hunter & Taylor have amazing chemistry. The LOL witty banter & sexual tension kept me engaged the entire time.This book is full of sexual tension, bickering, and a ton of teasing. Hunter can be described as not only really hilariously funny but he's a tattooed, guitar playing, singing hunk of sexiness who is also honest, confident, and not afraid to show his feelings. As their relationship starts deepening, things start getting more complicated, and the sexual tension builds to epic proportions. Hunter has definite feelings for Taylor and has no problem with expressing it but Taylor built protective walls around herself thanks to a secret from her past. She is terrified of relationships, guys in general, so keeps resisting him. Both are actually battling with secrets from their past, and soon these hidden things starts to impact their friendship until it all comes crashing out and.... then finally the chemistry can't be denied any longer. They fall deeply in love!! Hunter tries to be supportive in helping Taylor over come her issues, begin her healing process so she can move forward in life. This story is refreshing first love kind of romance, a little steamy, swoon worthy, and definitely had its LOL moments. More than anything its about breaking down walls, building trust, sharing a bond, devotion, healing and building a deep connection.

    I'm totally addicted to audio books! I listen when my eyes get too tired to read and when I am driving or just don't want to sit and read!

    "Whine anyone?"
    Would you try another book from Chelsea M. Cameron and/or Kate Rudd?

    ♡ them both...this story line was long on hate/disfunction and short on love/healing. It had potential for a great story but it was just O.K.


    What was most disappointing about Chelsea M. Cameron’s story?

    Secrets kept too long. By the time they came out I didn't care as much as I was thankful to get on with the story!


    What three words best describe Kate Rudd’s performance?

    She was great!


    Did My Favorite Mistake inspire you to do anything?

    Kinda fast forward thru the middle...


    Any additional comments?

    Loved Hunter but really got tired of Taylor and her bipolarish issues. Too much build up to what "almost" happened to her and very little on what actually happened to him.

    "Favorite Mistake"

    This book reminded me of some of my favorite books combined; almost like pieces of them were randomly put in but I loved it all the same. I loved Taylor & Hunter! She was a don't take any crap kind of girl & he was hilarious. I loved all their combative-ness (not sure that's a word)They had been through a lot to say the least

    "If you love New Adult books - this is a great one"
    What did you love best about My Favorite Mistake?

    Hunter....he is flat out amazing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Once again...that would be Hunter! :-)


    Which character – as performed by Kate Rudd – was your favorite?

    Kate's voice was perfect for Taylor, it's told from Taylor's POV so it works well - but she did a pretty good job with the voices for the other characters as well.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm horrible at tag lines! Behind every tough girl is a tough guy wanting to love her. See...I suck.


    Any additional comments?

    If you can get over Taylor's attitude, this is really a sweet and fun book - Hunter steals the show though.

    "Not my favorite book, just okay"
    Would you try another book from Chelsea M. Cameron and/or Kate Rudd?

    Depends on the age of the characters. This book started out great, but mid way through turned very immature. To the point I didn't want to finsih listening to it.


    Would you recommend My Favorite Mistake to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if the book was on sale, but wouldn't pay full price for it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Rudd’s performances?

    Not sure...voice mid way became very nasally almost as though Kate had a cold?


    Could you see My Favorite Mistake being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no, don't feel it was movie or TV material

    "Review: My Favorite Mistake, by Chelsea M. Cameron"

    It’s becoming harder and harder to win me over with contemporary romance novels, lately. I find that I’m somewhat picky when it comes to books that sound too similar to ones I’ve already read. So I try to find something different. My Favorite Mistake was one such book that seemed like it could offer something different for me.

    One of the things that hooked me in from the beginning was the way Cameron was able to write about college life for these characters, and make me feel like I was back in college again. There was a familiar atmosphere to it all. I did find it a little hard to believe that a college’s housing department wouldn’t have accommodated Taylor’s request to not have Hunter as a roommate. I dont’ have much co-ed dorm experience, but if someone’s uncomfortable, it’s their job to remedy the situation. But after accepting this, I was back into enjoying where the story went and how the author used this detail to her advantage.

    The characters are fun to get to know, and again, they act and feel like real college students. There’s nothing extraordinary about them. They go to class, study, hang out together. The focus given to college life in this book isn’t something I find in others. There’s normally a focus on characters and romance, not setting. Hunter was a great character once we get to see a big more of him. Taylor, the narrator, was good as well, if sometimes a bit much to handle reading about from the first person. Seeing her character from the outside might have let me feel for her, or understand her a bit more. They both have their issues that make them who they are and I think the way their conflicts grew into a childlike game, and relationship evolved was a nice touch. There were times when I couldn’t tell what’d happen next. Would there be a fight or a more tame civil moment? It kept me guessing.

    Overall I was pleased with the book. It’s a good sign when an author can get me to like the male lead and feel like the romance was never forced. There are many memorable secondary characters in here as well. With this being my first time reading Cameron’s work, I’m looking forward to the others I have on my Kindle.

    "So Good"

    I loved this story. It had the perfect balance of romance & reality. I also love anything Kate Rudd narrates so that was a benefit to the story as well. Their love story was fun and I love how it blossomed throughout the book. Loved it! Great read!

    Story
    "I wish I had a roommate like Hunter in college!"
    Would you listen to My Favorite Mistake again? Why?

    Maybe. It was a fun love story, but not captivating enough to listen to it again.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Kate Rudd is an extraordinary narrator. She made the book. However, I also enjoyed Hunter's character.


    What does Kate Rudd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Kate always does a fantastic job! She brings life to the story, portraying each character like their were more than one narrator.
