Lizzie has made endless mistakes. Kitchen fires, pyramid schemes, bangs (of the hair and human variety), you name it, she’s done it… and made a mess of it too. One mistake she’s never made is letting anyone get closer to her than a single hook-up. But after losing yet another bakery job due to her uncontrolled ADHD, she breaks her cardinal rule and has a two-night-stand that changes everything.
Once burned, twice shy, Rake has given up on relationships. And feelings. And any form of intimacy for that matter. Yet something about charming, chaotic Lizzie has him lowering his guard. For two nights, that is. Then it’s back home to Australia and far away from the pesky feelings Lizzie pulls from him. But when Lizzie tells him she’s got an unexpected bun in the oven, he’ll do whatever it takes to be a part of his child’s life… except be emotionally vulnerable, obviously. He’s never going to make that mistake again.
Through a series of mishaps, totally “platonic” single bed sharing, and an underground erotic baking scheme, Lizzie and Rake learn that even the biggest mistakes can have the most beautiful consequences.
Trigger Warnings: Unplanned pregnancy, aborition, cheating
THANK YOU to St. Martin’s Press for the advanced copy of this book!
I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it. This was just an ok read for me. Surprise, there’s an accidental pregnancy. I didn’t see this before I read this book. This isn’t a trope that I love reading, for obvious reasons. I did enjoy the chemistry between these two characters, but the pregnancy being a major part of this story was just something I didn’t enjoy.
