Two secrets. One bet. Who will break first? 

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 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, so she needs him gone before it's too late. 

Hunter himself has been burned before, but Taylor's sexy laugh and refusal to let him get away with anything make her irresistible. Determined not to be kicked out of her life without a fight, Hunter proposes a bet: if she can convince him she either truly loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment—and leave her alone. 

But when the man behind Taylor's fear of giving up her heart resurfaces, 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.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 15, 2013 – Self-published bestseller Cameron (Faster We Burn) weaves a tender story about two damaged people who are reluctant to love, but all too ready to spar. Within minutes of meeting Taylor Caldwell, Hunter Zaccadelli corners her in a bathroom to prove a point. She hauls off and slugs him, square on the jaw, and plants her knee in his groin for good measure. It seems that the University of Maine housing department, in its infinite wisdom, thought the two students would be ideal roommates. Taylor disagrees vehemently. For Hunter, though, rooming with a beautiful woman holds a certain appeal, injuries notwithstanding. Forced by circumstance and bureaucracy into an uneasy truce, Hunter proposes a deal: as soon as Taylor can prove that she either truly hates or loves him, he vows he will move out. In the meantime, they begin to share secrets and steamy encounters. Cameron strikes a careful balance with the pair s love/hate relationship that entertains, despite a predictable outcome.

This book was good! I wish there was more of Taylor and Hunters story...maybe an epilogue?

Cute Banter

This was a fun read for most parts. Hunter and Taylor has some playful and cute banter between each other. Some parts seemed kiddish, but I liked it overall. It wasn't super steamy, but it wasn't supposed to be. They are young college kids. I would recommend for a younger audience, maybe 25 and younger.

Review: My Favorite Mistake, by Chelsea M. Cameron

It’s becoming harder and harder to win me over with contemporary romance novels, lately. I find that I’m somewhat picky when it comes to books that sound too similar to ones I’ve already read. So I try to find something different. My Favorite Mistake was one such book that seemed like it could offer something different for me.

One of the things that hooked me in from the beginning was the way Cameron was able to write about college life for these characters, and make me feel like I was back in college again. There was a familiar atmosphere to it all. I did find it a little hard to believe that a college’s housing department wouldn’t have accommodated Taylor’s request to not have Hunter as a roommate. I dont’ have much co-ed dorm experience, but if someone’s uncomfortable, it’s their job to remedy the situation. But after accepting this, I was back into enjoying where the story went and how the author used this detail to her advantage.

The characters are fun to get to know, and again, they act and feel like real college students. There’s nothing extraordinary about them. They go to class, study, hang out together. The focus given to college life in this book isn’t something I find in others. There’s normally a focus on characters and romance, not setting. Hunter was a great character once we get to see a big more of him. Taylor, the narrator, was good as well, if sometimes a bit much to handle reading about from the first person. Seeing her character from the outside might have let me feel for her, or understand her a bit more. They both have their issues that make them who they are and I think the way their conflicts grew into a childlike game, and relationship evolved was a nice touch. There were times when I couldn’t tell what’d happen next. Would there be a fight or a more tame civil moment? It kept me guessing.

Overall I was pleased with the book. It’s a good sign when an author can get me to like the male lead and feel like the romance was never forced. There are many memorable secondary characters in here as well. With this being my first time reading Cameron’s work, I’m looking forward to the others I have on my Kindle.
