The Mistake

The Mistake Summary

Get ready for another binge-worthy romance from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!

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.

Book Reviews


Well written4 star

This story was well written and cute/lightheaded for the most part, but also tackled the heavy topic of addiction well. However, sometimes it felt like Grace’s character lacked depth and, personally, the plot was a bit predictable. Either way I enjoyed the story of Logan and Grace, it was cute, but it wasn’t comparable to the first story in the series.45


Loved the first book of this series…2 star

I love the first book of this series but the others are too similar, it’s like reading the same story over and over again . Change it up !!!25


i love this book sm5 star



So adorable5 star

Logan and graces story is so freaking cute. The amount of times my hand was over my mouth smiling and giggling because of how adorable they are was insane! I wish I had more of their story, literally loved every detail of their story, it was so cute!55


Logan is 10/10 book boyfriend material5 star

I laughed out loud SO often with this book. Logan is hilarious and I instantly loved him. 😂 Elle Kennedy hit it out of the park (sorry, still brushing up on my hockey lingo 🥴) once again. I read this in two days— pre-mom life I would’ve finished it in a day. Lol I would give 4.5 stars if I could though, because I felt like Grace’s character was too one-note for me. I just wanted more from her character. But I would absolutely recommend this book and the series as a whole!55


Love it5 star

I’m totally hooked….55


Cute not great4 star

I might be a little biased because The Deal is one of my go to books & I’m finally getting around to finishing the series buuuuuuut The Mistake didn’t quite hit the mark. It was cute & made me laugh a few times but I just:/// I did just buy book 3 so hopefully I’ll have a better report on that one45


mixed feelings3 star

While it was cute and I love both of the characters, they were on a break from each other for half of the book- they were separated for longer than they were “together!!!”35


less than a day reading this5 star

i'm hooked on these characters!!55


Another Book Finished In 48 Hours Or Less5 star

Has similar elements to The Deal—male lead who experienced a difficult childhood (for different reasons) that he doesn’t want people to know about that continues to impact his life, who is seemingly as self aware as he is confident, and falls hard for a girl that flew under his radar at first— without feeling like a repeat of the same story with different names. The situation with Logan having feelings for Hannah in The Deal was resolved in this book in a way that felt very genuine. While the middle section (Summer Break) felt a bit drawn out and lackluster, it captured exactly how Logan felt about not only that Summer Break, but also what his life after graduation would be, so I understand why it was necessary. I liked that Grace’s personality didn’t change when she came back from Paris, she just became more confident learned how to stand her ground. I would definitely read the book again.55
