Review: The Best Mistake by Cookie O’Gorman

I am definitely a fan of sports-centric romances despite not actually being super into real life sports that much. Or frankly athletes. But there’s something about a good fictional athlete that I kind of swoon over.

The Best Mistake is well, definitely a case of wrong identity! Honor is at a frat party determined to lose her virginity. She is twenty-one and in her mind, it is time. Her best friend, Charlie, has let her know that the easiest person to hook-up with is Baylor O’Brien, of the O’Brien family dynasty. Unfortunately, all the O’Briens look, well, super hot. She does hook-up with an O’Brien, but it is not Baylor and he makes that clear when she well, announces it during her orgasm.

Archer O’Brien is not pleased that Honor really doesn’t know who he is. But he also really, really wants to see her again. They have chemistry that he has never found with another woman and he is loath to see that end so soon. He would also like to clear his name so to speak! But as captain of the baseball team, Archer has a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders, including brothers who make more trouble than they are worth!

The Best Mistake is typical new adult romance. It doesn’t break any new ground but I didn’t expect it to or want it to! I wanted to read this book because it takes me back to my sports romance loving roots and in these days of pandemics, I just wanted something that would make me happy. This book has a bit too much drama for my personal tastes but when all was said and done, I was happy for Archer and Honor. I connected with them. Again, don’t expect characters to break every mold out there but know you can relate to Honor’s problems with her mom, her love for her best friend, Charlie, and yeah, her newfound feelings for Archer are very sweet and exciting.

The Best Mistake is the kind of comfort new adult romance I needed in my life recently and I’m glad I read it. I have never read anything by Cookie O’Gorman before but be sure to check out the acknowledgments and author’s note in this book which I thought were a lot of fun.

The Best Mistake is available now!

Title: The Best Mistake

Author: Cookie O’Gorman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About The Best Mistake:

Honor Tierney just wants one night with the playboy.

One hot, steamy, meaningless hookup, and then she’ll happily go back to reading her favorite books, studying to be an accountant and writing for the campus-paper-nobody-reads. Too bad she ends up in the wrong bed, with the wrong brother…who gives her the hottest night of her life.

Archer O’Brien just wants to play ball.

Well that, and for his brothers to stop acting out, so he won’t have to worry 24/7. As the oldest O’Brien and team captain, it’s his duty to make sure they don’t drink too much, party too much, or get in too much trouble. But when she walks into his bedroom—mistaking him for his brother—life throws him a curveball.

She’s determined to guard her heart. He’s not giving up.

And when Honor gets assigned to cover the Wolves baseball team, it’s game on.

This new adult sports romance features one hot (and hilarious) case of mistaken identity and a sexy set of brothers guaranteed to make you swoon.

Sometimes, the best mistakes are worth making.
