Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake
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.

Lizzie’s life isn’t going the way she planned as once again she finds herself unemployed. Living wit her ADHD can be challenging at time both when it comes to work and relationships. She believed that Rake would be like the men who had come before where they would enjoy a steamy evening together however fate had other ideas.
Rake is in town for business however a little pleasure with Lizzie is exactly what he needs. They spend two unforgettable nights together before they go their separate ways until he realizes that he is about to be a father. Due to his past this is a dream come true so he doesn’t hesitate before deciding to move to the US so that he can be near Lizzie and show her that her pregnancy is a gift to be treasured.
I really enjoyed Lizzie and Rake together as they start out as lovers and then become friends. Rake is exactly who Lizzie needs in her life as he appreciates her for who she is and knows that what makes her different is also what makes her special.
