✱✱Book Review✱✱ My Favorite Mistake by Claudia Burgoa


USA TODAY Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa brings us a brand new hockey romance about missed opportunities, accidental weddings, and found family.

What happens in Vegas might go viral!

The first time I metCaspian Spearman, we had the perfect night.

The second time, I was on the arm of his biggest rival.

The third night… was a string of mistakes.

Don’t believe me?

Let’s do a play-by-play—or mistake by mistake.

  1. I surprised my boyfriend in Vegas.
  2. I didn’t kill him when I caught him sleeping with his best friend.
  3. I went to the bar where I bumped into Cas.
  4. We had a few tequila shots for old times' sake.
  5. Like the last time, we ended up in bed…but it doesn’t end there.

According to the internet I’m married to the hot, arrogant, womanizer captain of the Portland Orcas.

It’s all over social media—in case we need proof.

Even my mother watched the blissful event—kill me now.

He can’t afford the bad PR.

I can’t deal with Mom’s, I told you so.

So, we agree to stay married.

At least until the end of next season.

And in the meantime, we’ll enjoy our off-the-charts chemistry.

The benefits of being married, he says.

What can go wrong?

After all, it’s only sex.


Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right? Well, maybe, except for when it's splashed all over social media, and it comes home with you. Then it definitely does not stay in Vegas. Granted, Claudia Burgoa's My Favorite Mistake isn't the first time I've seen this trope, but it may very well be one of the most engaging. Caspian and Rys are such a great couple, and that, combined with my love of second chances made them totally easy to root for. It also doesn't hurt that they're both lovable characters. Caspian is a sweetheart, and Rys is a strong woman who stands up for herself. I like that this one strays from the norm, and Rys is the one who needs convincing. It's refreshing to see a sexy hero who doesn't start the story as a complete playboy. He's not exactly innocent, but Caspian is all in and determined to convince Rys that they belong together. That doesn't prevent mistakes and misunderstandings, of course, but the angst is pretty low. So, overall, the story is lighthearted and fun, and we even get to visit with some past series favorites (my list of favorite Claudia Burgoa couples just keeps getting longer). So, another great couple in the Paradise Bay Billionaire Brothers series and another hard-to-put-down, witty and swoony romance from one of my go-to authors.
