Goodreads’ Book Description:
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.
In the highly anticipated second installment in the Off-Campus series, we finally get a good (amazing) look into John Logan, Garrett’s best friend from THE DEAL.
John Logan = A++++
He’s a big-time hockey player with the brightest and probably most successful future ahead of him, but he has his reserves about pursing a hockey career. Instead, he pursues a lovely gal named Grace Ivers, and he’s absolutely relentless (for good reason).
Meet Grace Ivers. She’s gorgeous, a bit tentative and completely apprehensive over her newfound friendship with John Logan. He kind of stumbles into her life and tilts it completely upside down. I love that she’s not even a fan of hockey because it’s a hilarious blow to Logan’s precious ego. Don’t worry, Logan. I’m completely hockey illiterate, but I’ll brush up with the sport for you 😉
Side note: the cameos with Hannah & Garrett make my life complete. I miss them daily; I should probably reread THE DEAL.
A lot goes down in the first half of the story so when Logan decides to pursue Grace, she stands her ground and doesn’t let Logan get what he wants without a healthy chase.
Their friendship was so fun to be a part of; I loved the silliness that was always brewing beneath the surface of their conversations. Add in a crazy amount of chemistry and you’ve got hilarious, yet completely steamy scenes between Logan and Grace.
Getting inside John Logan’s head comes with some family complications. His relationship with his father is extremely strained because of his father’s alcoholism. This also leads him to be in constant need of supervision.
Logan sacrifices his wants for his family’s needs. He’s loyal to a fault. Grace is his crutch, his number one confidant. Watching their relationship grow was honestly the best kind of reading experience. If you love funny banter, hockey players, and perfectly flawed heroes that you can’t help but fall in love with, pick up THE MISTAKE. I guarantee it is anything but.
