When college student, Nora Stirling, makes the tough choice to transfer schools to be closer to her family, what she isn’t prepared for is that things start to go wrong the minute one of her new roommates opens the front door. When a house meeting is called and Milo appears, one look has Nora spinning.
Milo Daughton is moody, flirty and a known player. As irresistibly sexy as he is, he runs hot and cold, and there are a set house rules in place. Determined to focus on school, Nora sets out to keep Milo and his heartbreaking ways out of her life, and out of her bed.
When she finds that her tires have been slashed, Nora chalks it up to being a random prank at her expense. As strange things continue to happen though, she questions if she is being targeted. With her unlikely group of roommates rallying around her, she struggles to accept their help. Can she figure out who is behind it all, or will everyone be put at risk of getting hurt at her expense?
3 Heart Review by Ashley
Typically new adult isn't my genre of choice but I saw the added elements of romantic suspense I decided to make The Mix-Up my first read from Erin Cristofoli.
I liked Nora. She was hard working, reserved at times, kind and willing to make sacrifices for those she loved. Which is exactly how she ended up in her current, not ideal living situation. But it was also what brought Milo into her orbit. And there was something about him, from the first time she saw him, that both made her nervous and intrigued her. But it also put her in the spotlight, and that was attention she did not want.
I liked that when some mysteriously, potentially dangerous things started occurring, all the guy, but especially Milo stepped up. His protective instincts came out in full force and he took it on himself to ensure Nora's safety.
I'm not going to lie, I found the end of The Mix-Up a bit anti-climatic. There was all this build up and then it was just over and done. That being said, Erin Cristofoli got me with who was behind all the chaos. I didn't see that twist coming at all. I'm hoping some of the other guys in the house will get their stories told.
