My Favorite Mistake

My Favorite Mistake - Chelsea M. Cameron New Adult. Mature YA. College reads. Whatever you want to call it, I’m smitten for it. Which is why I’ve chosen Chelsea M. Cameron’s first foray into this brand new world of twenty somethings as my first New Adult Fridays read.My Favourite Mistake hooked me in when I read the first chapter at the end of another indie author’s, but it really took me for a ride. It gave me everything I was expecting and then so much more that I wasn’t. In terms of college stories, it seems like there’s only one way to write them – quiet freshman falls for the jock junior or senior, drama ensues but then it all ends up good. But MFM starts off a bit differently – Cameron takes a hilarious twist on a rooming situation and turns it into a sassy, romantic comedy/drama that will have you hanging on to every last page. When Hunter Zaccadelli walks into Taylor’s life – and bedroom – it changes forever. It begins with a betOne of the things I loved most about this novel is that our bad boy, who is hot and sexy in all the right places has a different side to him, which he isn’t afraid to show. He’s got demons like the rest of us, but he doesn’t let that control him completely, not like other NA bad boys I’m thinking about. Something that I totally fell for was how Hunter never backed down with Taylor. All her internal and external conflicts came into force, everything that told her to stay away, but he fought for her. And that is one part of a relationship that I adore so much. If you are truly in love with someone, you fight for them. You don’t give up, and that’s what Hunter did. And he did it patiently. What added to all the sexual tension (YES! Sexual Tension Jellyfish was having a ball here!) was Taylor internal confliction about her feelings for Hunter. But it didn’t completely rule the novel. There were some very deep themes in MFM, so this read is definitely for older readers that feel comfortable with pressing issues. However I highly recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the new adult genre, especially when it concerns real life issues.My Favorite Mistake is a gem of a read, and I can’t wait to get my paperback version of this gorgeously wonderful book so that I can read it over and over again.
