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 hook-ups, 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.
Just when I thought the series couldn’t get any better it sure does in the second book of Elle Kennedy’s “Off-Campus” Series. “The Mistake” focuses on John Logan who is one of Garrett Graham’s roommates and best friends. They’re friendship becomes a bit questionable however ever since Hannah became a permanent staple in Garrett’s life.
One would think that this is because Garrett barely has time for Logan now that he’s in a committed relationship but that isn’t so. Logan is the culprit. He decided that he needed to distance himself from them. He begins avoiding the couple like the plague and this is how he unexpectedly ends up in an unassuming freshman – Grace Ivers’ dorm room. He went in without a plan nor with any expectations but when he leaves her room he is beyond mystified.
At first, I had my doubts on how the author could make these Grace and Logan fit together. The two have nothing in common – Grace didn’t even like hockey for goodness sake but somehow she was able to make the couple work and I can not help but admire her ingenuity in that matter. Grace was meant to catch and even kept Logan’s attention. It was proven repeatedly that he could have any woman he wanted on campus (and beyond) but he wanted her and no other.
I couldn’t help but admire this guys persistence. That wasn’t the only thing that I loved about his character… even if he was talented athlete he was down to earth and always knew where his priorities were. He sounds like an all around nice guy – almost perfect but oh no of course he had to mess things up.
This is where the most entertaining parts occur… where Grace brings Logan down to his knees. In no time she has him literally jumping through hoops to even date her and I tell you, the wooing that Logan had to endure is some of the best I’ve come across as of late. Just thinking about it makes me giddy all over again. What makes it even more worthwhile is how his besties support him through this and his other issues as well. At this point we witness just how deep their friendship goes.
What I also found remarkable about this series is its’ depth. We aren’t just dealing with a smoldering college romance rather it also possesses real life issues and adult situations that one could learn from.
I thought the writing was great and very much entertaining. The pace was also fantastic.”Off-Campus” is definitely a well-rounded series. I personally loved both books equally and can not wait to read Tuck and/or Dean’s book next.
