My Tease for this week comes from:

My Favorite Mistake

Chelsea M. Cameron

First - The 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 blueeyed bundle of charm. On the other, he's a tattooed, guitarplaying 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 refusal to let him get away with anything makes her irresistible. Determined not to be kicked out of her life without a fight, Hunter proposes a bet: if she can convince him she loves or hates him, he'll leave the apartment for good.

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.

Second - The Tease:

(Taylor) "You said you didn't like me."

(Hunter) "I don't like you. I don't like how your hair smells, and how I can't stop thinking about waking up and seeing your face. I hate how my bed felt empty when you left. I don't like how good you were with my family, especially Harper, and how I wanted to see you with them again, but not just as a guest. As a member. You're right. I don't like you at all."

(Taylor) "When did you change your mind?"

And here's a second I couldn't resist:

"Taylor, look at me. Please."

Damn. If only he didn't say please.

"I can't promise not to make you mad. I can't promise that I won't hurt you. All I can promise is that I want you in my life, and I'll do anything to keep you there."

Third - My Thoughts:

Hunter is confident, arrogant and a little damaged due to a past he'd rather not think about.
Taylor is stubborn, direct and carries some baggage of her own. Neither of them wants to reveal their secret, but like all secrets, they eventually rise to the surface.

There's a lot of bickering and sexual tension between these two as they grapple with their feelings for each other. It's a nice love story which had me glued to the pages and desperate to learn how it all turns out.

This is the first book by Chelsea which I have read. I really like her writing style so I'll be searching out others in her collection.

My rating: 5 out of 5
