Blog Tour: My Faovirte Mistake - Review/Character Profile/Giveaway

My Favorite Mistake
Release Date: September 29, 2012

On the one hand, Hunter Zaccadelli is a handsome, blue-eyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitar-playing bundle of 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, and even though her other roommates adore him, she wants him gone before it's too late.

Hunter himself has been been burned before, but the fact that Taylor calls him out on his crap and has the sexiest laugh ever make him decide maybe love isn't a lost cause. They make a bet: if she can convince him she truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment--and leave her alone. The problem is, the more time they spend together, the less she hates him, and the more she moves toward love.

But when the man who holds the key to Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces and threatens to wreck everything, 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.

First let me start by saying I don't normally read non young adult books but sometimes I like to venture out and this well worth the venture.  We meet Taylor and her two roommates who are awaiting their fourth roommate, when a knock comes on the door and there stands Hunter.  i can only imagine what went through every ones minds.  This story made me miss college with so much passion, I wish I was back there and having as much fun as these characters were.

Taylor is surprised that the school sent over Hunter, a boy to live with her and her two roommates, it may have been the worst or best thing that ever happened to her.  It all depends on what day it is, but there is an undeniable attraction between the two of them.  It's strong, and magnetic.  The both of them are so much alike they just don't even realize it.  Both have gone through tough times and even though Taylor decides to deal with it by being a hard ass, and Hunter ever the smooth flirt.  Again you have no idea how much I missed college reading this book.

The characters were great, they were complex and had some depth to them because they were all so different yet all of them were going through different things and the way they w I know. I read this book very quickly because it piqued my interest from the very beginning and I'm hoping somewhere there will be a continuation because there is still so much that can be told by the other characters.  The dynamic relationship between the two main characters had me laughing and enjoying their constant fighting/flirting all a mask for their undeniable attraction and fun flirting.  This book was good, you have to read it and reminisce about the things you went through or have seen other people go through.  Fun but serious read. 

I really love the cover too, very simple fun and playful just like the book itself, with the contrast in colors showing the more serious parts.  Go read it!

Great review! I thought this book sounded really good when I first heard about it last month. I'm happy to hear you liked it and I'm definitely planning on getting a copy!

My greatest mistake... Probably cheating on a quiz. I didn't get caught but guilt followed me.

My biggest mistake: my current husband not being my first and only husband. But it turned out ok, because I don't think I would know how blessed I am now if I hadn't gone through all the crap with the first one. Life isn't perfect now but I am incredibly happy and loved now. :)

My greatest mistake...being married to my ex. Though if we hadn't been married I wouldn't have my angel girl! So it turned out great!

My greatest mistake was to return an expensive silver ring to the online shop that I've bought it from. They sent me it in a wrong size and had to send me a ring in the right size, but the ring went out of stock, and I never receive a refund despite several emails. So now I've got no ring and no money. This happened a few years ago, but I can't forget this

My greatest mistake would be giving my ex a second chance. But if I hadn't, I wouldn't have my wonderful kids!

My greatest mistake would probably be avoiding my ex-best friend when she had issues back in high school. But because of that mistake I met my current best friend's that I really treasure. :)

I would say, sticking by someone for the wrong reasons. It eventually ended, but not soon enough. I now have to rebuild what was destroyed.

My greatest mistake was taking a few years off college. It was a total waste of time career-wise, but I did have a lot of fun!
