Publisher's Summary

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 hookups, 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 when a thoughtless mistake pushes her away, Logan plans to spend his final year proving to her that he's worth a second chance. Now he's going to need to up his game....

After a less than stellar freshman year, Grace is back at Briar University, older, wiser, and so over the arrogant hockey player she nearly handed her V-card to. She's not a charity case, and she's not the quiet butterfly she was when they first hooked up. If Logan expects her to roll over and beg like all his other puck bunnies, he can think again. He wants her back? He'll have to work for it. This time around, she'll be the one in the driver's seat, and she plans on driving him wild.

Loved the story but...

The Mistake and The Deal are two of my favourite books released this year. I could re-read them over and over. I was so excited to have them available as audiobooks

But as with The Deal, the first book in the Off Campus series, Audible Studios chose a terrible narrator. Lorelei Avalon's whiny, nasal voice was completely inappropriate for the characters and it threw a damper on all the witty banter I was waiting to hear between the main characters of Logan and Grace

Audible Studios you owe Elle Kennedy a pretty big apology for this and whoever cast the narrator for the Mistake and The Deal should perhaps think about actually reading the book they are casting for

PLEASE DO NOT USE LORELEI AVALON FOR THE SCORE!!!!

Unfortunately, the narrator ruins a weak book

I failed to heed reviewer references to a "not the right one" narrator on these novels. I figured "Hey, how bad can it be, since I like sports romances ... a lot."

Well it turns out that it can be very bad. The character voices are Very similar, to the point of creating a puzzle regarding who said what. Then we have the manly athletes throwing lots of fowl language around while sounding like asthmatic young girls ... or the occasional asthmatic little old lady when they are expressing strong feelings.

A great narrator probably could have salvaged the prose portraying a whining protagonist's endless introspection about lusting after his room-mate's girlfriend and other topics. But it was pretty tedious, even though I usually can summon a high tolerance for sub mid-list prose.

This book is possibly better as a print book; then you can just skim through the repetitive introspection (aka filler?). At least this would omit the distraction of a bad narrator. But I think most people will regret spending anything on this audiobook.

I'll be curious to see if Audible will leave this review up after I return this mistake.

Second Elle Kennedy book, I've listened to and it was even better than the first!

Grace and Logan have amazing chemistry and I loved their journey. A little bit of build up, but again I loved the pace that Ms. Kennedy keeps with her stories. I don't mind a little drama for a little back and forth, but when stories are held up because of "big" secrets, it drives me crazy. Everything is revealed at a nice pace in this book. And I'm still loving the secondary characters and looking forward to more stories in this series.
So glad that this same narrator has continued for this series. She is really great.

I LOVED THE BOOK, but....

I loved this book, as well as the other books in this series (The Deal and The Score). ... Loved, as in I have re-read them more than once. Unfortunately, it loses A LOT in the audiobook. The narrator is talented as a female narrator. However, I will never understand why authors (or is it the publisher's decision) who write books with alternating POVs elect to use only 1 narrator for the audiobook. The suspension of disbelief is difficult when the tough hockey player hero sounds like a girl with a cold instead of a guy.

Other than that, it really is a great story that made me smile all the way through. The Hero really has to work to get his HEA, but not in an over the top I am so annoyed way. It was funny and heartwarming. Unless you need the audiobook because you have a long commute, definitely read the book.

Okay read

Enjoyed it just wish it was read by both female and male narrator! Just didn't seem to "flow" correctly with a female narrator reading Logan's part.

The Mistake

I loved Grace and Logans story, it was so sweet! I do wish that the audio was done by a male and female instead of just a female, but she did do a good job.

Great addition to one of my fave new adult series!

After first loving The Mistake when I read it as an ebook, I decided to dive in again on audio for a reread. And guess what? I loved it just as much the second time around.

The first book in Elle Kennedy’s Off-Campus series, The Deal, is everything I love about new adult lit and more. It was different than a lot of the NA out there. It took chances. I loved the characters. I couldn’t wait to see how Elle would follow up that fantastic book and if I could possibly love Grace and Logan as much as I did Hannah and Garrett. And you know what? I totally did.

Logan could see his future very clearly. He had an agreement with his older brother that, once he graduated college, he would return home to the family business – and taking care of their disabled, alcoholic father – while his brother got an opportunity to live his life. His future was bleak, so he was living it up while he could. He loved hockey and wanted nothing more than to have the chance to go pro, but he owed it to his father and his brother. His dreams would have to take a backseat. He wasn’t really ok with that, but he’d resigned himself to it. So, he did whatever he wanted in college. Of course, that included a lot of drinking and hooking up. But all that began to change when he met Grace. He realized he did want more out of life.

I freaking adored Grace. She might’ve been a virgin, but she wasn’t the cliched version I’m accustomed to seeing in books. She wasn’t prudish or unrealistically innocent. She was just a real girl. She was also spunky and didn’t take any of Logan’s crap, which I loved. As great of a guy as he was, he didn’t always make good choices and she wasn’t going to let him walk all over her. I love a girl who doesn’t accept less than what she deserve. Case in point, when her “best friend” Ramona behaves abhorrently, she doesn’t mince words and accept her apology as to not ruffle feathers. It’s not often that I find a female character who is this strong, this honest and who doesn’t come off bitchy or unlikable.

I loved Logan and Grace together. I liked how they each grew together. They really found themselves while finding each other. I loved their banter. They had a ton of chemistry right from the very start – even if they started off a bit unconventionally. The sexy times were hot. Logan gave me the swoony moments I most want from a book boyfriend and I found myself getting emotional as things played out in the book. I was definitely wrapped up in these characters and their story.

The Mistake was a fantastic follow-up to The Deal. This series has rapidly become one of my favorite new adult romance series and one that I talk about incessantly. It’s smart, sexy and has real characters who deal with believable situations. It’s not always pretty. They’re not perfect. I enjoy how these books deal with relationships, friendships and the family dynamic. I love a good bromance and this series absolutely has that.

When it comes to the audio performance, I thought Lorelei Avalon did a fantastic job voicing both Grace and Logan. Her narration was spot on — especially when it came to Grace — and that's a big part of why I loved it as much (or maybe more?) on the second go round.

Great follow up!

Would you listen to The Mistake again? Why?

I really liked this one. Not better than teh first because I looooved Garrett but Logan really grew on me, I was surprised I fell in love with Logan because I wasn't a fan of him in book 1, but like I said, he grew on me.

Grace was just an okay character but I did like how comfortable she was with her sexuality after she lost her virginity. I just felt like she was annoyingly perfect so I didn't really connect to her like I could have. Other than that, I enjoyed book 2 and looking forward to the third in series!

story was ok

I listened to this as it was a sequel, but it lacked the depth and intensity of its predecessor. it was a nice story and well told. However I found myself drifting off whilst listening.

The mistake

Again this story could have used a male narrator & hence the score. The story is really sweet but not enough to give you tooth ache. It is a really good story let down by the narrator. You cannot have really manly men portrayed by a woman trying to do the 'voice'
