Mistakes Were Made Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The good news: she likes someone. The bad news: it's her best friend's mum. From the critically acclaimed author of Something To Talk About comes a sharp and sexy rom-com about a college senior who accidentally hooks up with her best friend's mom. When college senior, Cassie, spends her Friday evening at an off-campus bar, she isn't looking for a hook-up - 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 mum . . . who turns out to be the hot, older woman Cassie just slept with. Erin was meant to spend the weekend getting closer to her daughter, not having a one-night stand.

But despite her better judgement, Erin 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 might really have something real.

But is being honest about the love between them worth the cost?
