[Review] My Favorite Mistake by Chelsea M. Cameron

Book Blurb: 

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. 

Review:  I don't read a lot of contemporary fiction, paranormal is more my thing, but I read the author's other book, Noctalis and I really liked it so I thought I would see what this one was like.  I really had fun reading My Favorite Mistake. 

Taylor is such an awesome character.  She has spunk and sass.  She has built up a wall around herself and doesn't let guys in.  When she discovers her new college roommate, Hunter, he really gets under her skin.  She has conflicting feelings throughout - not knowing whether she wants to kiss Hunter or hit him. 

Hunter on the other hand, has a reputation as a bad boy that gets around.  Hunter and Taylor bicker back and forth.  Hunter has gotten hurt in the past.  Will the two be able to get over their pasts and see the relationship that they could have together?  Read My Favorite Mistake to find out.

The writing is well done.  The characters are well developed.  The book moves along at a good pace, keeps you turning pages.  Chelsea M Cameron doesn't disappoint.
