My Favorite Mistake
by Chelsea M. Cameron
Published September 29th 2012
Taylor Caldwell can't decide if she wants to kiss her new college roommate or punch him.
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.
Thank you Taylor stopping by today, it's a pleasure to have you here.
Taylor: Thanks for having me.
If you could, tell my readers that may not have read the book yet a little bit about you and My Favorite Mistake.
Taylor: Well, it's a story about me and this guy who I get stuck living with. Hopefully you never have a roommate issue, because housing will do NOTHING. We end up making this stupid bet that if I can prove to him that I love him or hate him by the end of the semester, he'll leave. I'm still working on it. For some reason, he gets under my skin and makes it really hard to think straight.
Let me ask you, how are things with Hunter?
He's EVERYWHERE. I can't make one move without him being there, making some comment about how he wants to get in my pants, or something like that. My other roommates, Darah and Renee think he's hilarious, and I'm pretty sure Darah is in love with his cousin, so they're no help. They don't really understand why I dislike him so much. He's just so IRRITATING. I just want him to leave so he'll stop looking at me like he's undressing me with his eyes.
What drew you to him, besides his smoking hot looks of course?
God, I don't know. Maybe it's those tattoos. What is it about tattoos? Women are drawn to them. Maybe they've got magnetic ink or something. Or his eyes. Please don't tell anyone, but his eyes are amazing. Also, he plays the guitar. If he didn't open his mouth, he'd be perfect.
If you could describe Hunter in five words, what would they be?
Cocky, Overconfident, rude umm... he's pretty damn sexy, but don't tell him. His head is too big as it is. And he can be sweet, when he wants to. Don't tell him that, either.
Do you think you'll ever get married?
That would be a no. Marriage is fine for some people, but it's not for me. I just don't see it happening.
Fast Five Favorites:
Food- Red Velvet cake
Song- It's a tie between Fix You by Coldplay and Tip of My Tongue by The Civil Wars
Reading Spot- Usually my bed, but I can read anywhere, as long as I have a good book and there isn't SOMEONE distracting me.
Possession- My peacock feather dreamcatcher my sister, Tawny, got me.
Place- That's easy. The library. None in particular, any library is a good library.
I will tell you that I signed up for this tour because I've heard great things about this author from a blogger buddy of mine, Laura from Little Read Riding Hood. I know she has recommended her Noctalis Chronicles series but I figure since the opportunity is here, this is where I will start.
That being said, I am glad to report that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I read it in less than 2 days. It took about a chapter or two to really get into this book, but I'm a sucker for a HOT guy, funny banter, sarcasm and tons of sexual tension. Oh and sexual tension there was!
These two have both been through a lot of heart aches and problems in their short lives. During the course of the book, however bumpy it started, they were able to trust each other. They are both closed off emotionally and don't typically let people see the real them. Hunter and Taylor are each other's perfect matches. They are able to understand one another, when most people wouldn't be able to.
Hunter is funny, quirky, intelligent, gorgeous and so romantic! There are several mushy, sweet scenes that I completely loved and ate them up! Taylor is one tough chic, a little whiny at times and over the top but tough. I'm glad she finally gave in and allowed herself to fall for Hunter. Definitely recommend this read to anyone looking for a quick sweet love story.
