Book Review: Mistakes Were Made

Mistakes Were Made by Meryl Wilsner
Out today from St. Martins Press

If you, like me, found yourself dying at the achingly slow burn of Wilsner’s first book, Something to Talk About, and if you, like me, have returned to that book again and again to relive the sheer perfection of that exquisite torment, then you are in for a helluva surprise with their new book, Mistakes Were Made. Wilsner gets right to the point in this one. Seriously. Like, getting busy with a stranger in the back seat of a car in chapter one. No slow burn here!

Cassie is student at the same college as Erin’s daughter. During Family Weekend, the two meet in a bar, hook up, and then go their separate ways. Until the following morning, when Cassie agrees to go to breakfast with her best friend Parker and Parker’s mom. And surprise! Parker’s mother turns out to be none other that the MILF from her fling the night before.

Mistakes Were Made is a super sexy sapphic age-gap romance. While I didn’t always love the choices that Cassie and Erin made in hiding their developing relationship from Parker, I did love them as a couple and was rooting for them right from the beginning. I highly recommend this book for fans of:

  • sapphic romance
  • MILFs
  • off-the-charts chemistry
  • age gaps
  • bisexual rep
  • steamy, sexy, open-door romance
  • secret relationships
  • dual POV
  • female friendships
  • taboo (my-best-friend’s-mom) romance
  • smart, strong, independent women

Thank you to NetGalley and to St Martin’s Press for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
