When Lacey Billings gives her boyfriend, Ran, an erotic wake-up call in the middle of the night, she’s shocked to discover that the gorgeous man she’s kissing isn’t Ran…it’s his cousin, Rick.

Although Ran laughs off the mix-up, Lacey and Rick can’t stop thinking about the unexpected encounter, and they can’t escape the scorching flashbacks it’s aroused.

Ran doesn’t want an innocent mistake to ruin his relationship with his girlfriend or his cousin, so he proposes a solution. He wants the three of them to solve this problem the old-fashioned way, by sleeping on it…together.

My Thoughts

From the very beginning you see a loving man (Ran) who wants nothing more than to be true to the woman he loves (Lacey) and his best friend (Rick) – who happens to also be his first cousin.

Lacey accidently pounces her boyfriends best friend / cousin. While Ran, the bf, is fine with what happened and even finds it a bit amusing, neither of them do. The problem? Rick is secretly in love with Lacey? Lacey feels guilt because she enjoyed and still wants more? . . . Oh yeah! Thankfully Ran has the solution, “sleeping on it . . . together.” And OMG, I wanted to be her!

It’s a rare thing for me to find a 3-way relationship story like this where the guys are both straight and everyone finds really happiness.  The Best Mistake was a quick, hot read that I truly enjoyed!  The fact you got to see what all three thought and felt just made it all the better. Take a chance and dive into a hot, yummy book!
