My Favorite Mistake--A Review

Morning my peeps! 

 I hope that with the start of November all bodes well for you.     October was stressful for me.    I feel like the whole month was sickness, for myself, my husband, my daughter, my grand daughter and my mother.....Headcolds that wanted to linger, (I didn't realize we were so popular anything wanted to stick with us)!

So I for one am happy to say good-bye to October...and take this stinkin head cold with you!   Welcome November.   Please get cold enough the diseases get the heck out of Dodge!

  My original post for My Favorite Mistake is here.    My review of the actual book now that I have finished it is on this post.    Let me first say that I rated this book a five out of five Winks!   I loved it and I still haven't stopped thinking about it.  So here we go with the review:

In reading this book, I was  taken back to my college days and life with complete strangers.  Taylor Caldwell lived in an apartment setting on campus with her friends, Renee and Darah.  As unimaginable as it seemed to me, the fourth roomie was a male, Hunter Zacarelli.   and guess whose room mate he was? Yep, Taylor's.  Although she felt this had to be a mistake on Housing's part, they were forced to adjust to the living arrangements.   Both Hunter and Taylor carried a ton of old baggage and secrets.   Both were attracted to each other; neither trusted the other.   Hunter was every where Taylor went...home, class, work---nerves were taut.  It definitely was a love hate relationship.   So they made a bet.   If Taylor could prove to Hunter that she either loved him or hated him, he would move out....so what would it be?

Let me tell you, Taylor and Hunter's characters were so very well defined.....the baggage they carried around had certainly affected the way they behaved and talked to each other.  It also gave them the similar ground they needed to build their relationship on and to provide healing for one another.    Hunter was so annoying, but I loved how he called her Missy!   I had a very clear vision of Hunter tearing her walls down, one tiny bit at a time!   I didn't always appreciate their language, but it added to their character.  The story was fluent, supporting characters were admirably developed.   The story is definitely an adult read--sex scenes, foul language and some violence.

But there was something great about this read.   I felt as if I was right there...a part of the story.   And that made it even more magical to me!   Thank you Chelsea for such a great read!   I will look forward to more adult contemporary from you!

Has anyone else read this?   What was your opinion?    Inquiring minds want to know!!

Disclaimer:  I read for my pleasure.   I may receive ARC copies for review purposes, but I am not compensated for my reviews .  I like to read and I like to share my reviews.   I post my thoughts without prejudice or bias.  The words are mine and I write reviews based on my humble opinion.  I will admit, I seldom meet a book I don't like.
