When Cassie Klein goes to an off-campus bar to escape her school’s Family Weekend, she isn’t looking for a hookup—it just happens. Buying a drink for a stranger turns into what should be an uncomplicated, amazing one-night stand. But then the next morning rolls around and her friend drags her along to meet her mom—the hot, older woman Cassie slept with.
Erin Bennett came to Family Weekend to get closer to her daughter, not have a one-night stand with a college senior. In her defense, she hadn’t known Cassie was a student when they’d met. To make things worse, Erin’s daughter brings Cassie to breakfast the next morning. And despite Erin’s better judgement—how could sleeping with your daughter’s friend be anything but bad?—she and Cassie get along in the day just as well as they did last night.
What should have been a one-time fling quickly proves impossible to ignore, and soon Cassie and Erin are sneaking around. Worst of all, they start to realize they have something real. But is being honest about the love between them worth the cost?
Spoiler Free Review
After the messy divorce from her husband, Erin Bennett decides she needs to go to a bar and have a day to herself. She definitely did not expect to have a one night stand with Cassie Klein, who turns out to be a friend of her daughters. Even though Cassie may be older than her daughter, Erin did not think that she would be caught in this situation.
I gave Mistakes Were Made four stars, really enjoying the romance between Erin and Cassie and the chemistry between the two. I really enjoyed the age gap romance that happened and found myself enjoying the moments where Cassie and Erin were together. I liked that they both tried to deny their love for each other but there were these small gestures that you could see were impactful. I found their relationship really interesting and how they were fueling their relationship on the secrets of hiding that they were seeing each other.
Something that Mistakes Were Made does well is making me want more of their relationship. Cassie and Erin were fun together and they were both mature about it. Even though Cassie was only a few years older than Erin’s daughter, Cassie’s friend, Cassie acted like an adult and didn’t act like a college senior. They were both just adults that had good chemistry together and that simply wanted more from each other.
Thank you again to NetGalley for providing me with and eARC in exchange for an honest review.
