2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favorite, October 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: My Favorite Mistake (Kindle Edition)
I appear to be in the minority, but I did not enjoy My Favorite Mistake. In fact, I had a really, really difficult time finishing it. First, the premise was weak: What college is going to force a male and a female student to share a room? That is a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Second, I thought that the h was annoying - even understanding her issues - she was humorless and rude and violent. Also, the characters kept saying that the H behaved like an a$$hat - but the writing wasn't clear as to why/how. In addition, the dialogue was grating. When the characters would say something that was realistic and could be funny, they'd act like it was strange and out-of-the-ordinary. When the characters would say something weird and incomprehensible, the book portrays it as witty and funny. Maybe the problem is that the book does not convey the necessary nuances through dialogue. But this is a major failing since the book relies so heavily on dialogue.

Also I don't agree with the comparisons to Travis/BD. Hunter supposedly is a player, but you never see that part. He's more immature. Yes, he becomes needy with the h, but not in the dark, obsessed way that Travis is. The only similarities I see are that the H and h are in college and share living quarters. And the H gives the h nicknames.
