Off-Campus Series Books 1 -5 Collection Set by Elle Kennedy (The Deal, The Mistake, The Score, The Goal & The Legacy)
About this deal
Allie doesn't do casual sex yet she finds herself waking to a very naked Dean beside her and visions of a crazy night full of everything sexual fantasies are made of. No wonder Dean has the reputation of screwing half the female student body at Briar. But it's a one and done. She doesn't do hook-ups and definitely not with the notorious Dean Di Laurentis. this was so bad. this was not it. garrett would never say that shit to hannah like wtf?? the garrett in ”the deal” would not compare her to his dad who abused him. thats so wrong and now im just ugh. im pissed and just wtf
One of the best parts about this book is that even with some of the more serious things going on in Logan’s life, it still made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. It was straight up funny!
The best way to get over someone is to hook up with someone else. ASAP. Seriously, just find yourself a rebound. I volunteer as tribute.” Much like The Deal, The Mistake's biggest strengths are its likable and relatable characters. John Logan and Grace Ivers may be your typical college-age kids but they both have goals, ambitions and life outside "finding the one". I liked that they act like college kids and their struggles and issues fit within that age range. These characters worry about school, they worry about their prospects after college, they worry about their future, etc. Chills,” he breathes. “Genuine chills, man. Look.” He rolls up his shirt sleeve to show me his arm. “That’s the one.”
Is also super funny and cheery most of the time. The banter and sweet talk between him and Allie is awesome. You see, I wasn't expecting anything out of this novella collection, but damn, this was a whole other level of "go girl, give us nothing". Main characters: I could not find one unique thing about them. I was fed up with Allie's inability to grow a pair and start acting like an adult towards whatever relationship she had with Sean. And on that note, I feel all the author did was take a stable character we've known from the start, like Sean, and turn him into a sexist douche for the sake of the plot. Allie was immature and I honest to God hated her voice. My eyes would start rolling from the second I saw I was about to start her POV. And on to Dean, way to go with the stereotype. His whole overnight turnaround was completely absurd and just down right ridiculous. Golden vaginas that make guys go goo-goo-ga-ga after one lay is just eye roll worthy and plain ol' unrealistic. And their kink? Dude, please, let's just not.For Allie has finally pulled the plug on her long-term on-again off-again relationship with Sean. They started in her freshman year with the understanding of what would happen at the end of college... the both of them going off to do what they had planned...She to pursue her passion in acting... him, off to Vermont to work at his father's insurance company. What developed was a push-pull between them; Sean trying to manipulate Allie to being "the little woman supporting her man" syndrome. But this made up for it. I can't believe hannah and garret are having twins, a boy and a girl. baby hannah and garret are coming. And hannah asking garret to marry him, i love them so much. Dean was rather occupied when the text about Allie was sent... so he had no clue anyone was coming over, let alone Hannah's bestie. Dean was in a trance of mystical proportions...instead of 2 of everything... there were 4...He was living the dream all guys have when wanting more than what one person can give...He was about to enter nirvana when the banging on his door interrupted his entering the treasured path... Now that you’ve gotten to know Logan and Grace a little better have fun reading about them in THE MISTAKE. One of my favorite parts happens at 63%. I had so much fun finding a gif for that passage. That's the great part about goodreads is even for those who haven’t read the story they are still able to join in the fun laughing at a gif. There is so much more to this story than just the start of this relationship. We find out why Dean has acted the way he has and his growth arc is done with sleight of hand and then leaps and bounds. Allie has been on a serious path for a very long time. She had a family which loved and cared for her, experienced what it was like to lose a loved one, and now is devoted to her father. With his management of MS becoming harder and harder, Allie has made decisions based on it. She has been a caretaker for a very long time, not always doing what is best for her or allowing others to do for her.
