It started as a promise.
A momentary lapse in sanity had me agreeing to two months of celibacy.
Then Mark Bishop showed up. My new boss was cocky, possessive, and unfortunately, sexy as hell.
My first mistake?
Thinking I would last two months.
The Mistakes is the third book in the Off-Limits series by Elizabeth Brown, also the third book I’ve read by this author. I just can’t seem to get enough of her writing. It is different, fun, and keeps you turning the pages.
While it is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. If you’re worried about cheating, there is none and yes, there is an HEA as well. It is written from a dual POV between the main two characters; Mark and Winnie. If you have read the other books, you know those names. Ms. Brown does a fantastic job of setting up her next book within the book you’re reading. That has been something I have loved about this series overall.
The Mistakes was one of those books I could not put down. I loved it from the first chapter because frankly, I was cracking up laughing. These characters are fun and it’s great to see characters from the previous book sand find out little tidbits of their lives too. I can actually state that I waited on this book and was ecstatic when it came out.
Winnie is outrageous. She was a standout character for me from the last book, so I knew I’d love her. Sometimes I boggled at her, but she’s very upfront about what she wants and she’s not shy. Mark was a surprise for me, I didn’t realize how much I’d like him.
These two start a very forbidden romance, and not just because Mark is her boss, that spins off-kilter and throws both characters for a loop. They have intense chemistry and frankly, for a time I was like are these two going to even really “know” each other. It’s almost like they do everything backward with each other and their whole relationship isn’t cookie cutter.
Again, this was one I could not put down. I would definitely recommend it, especially if you’ve read the other books in the series. The banter and laugh out loud moments alone make it worth it.
