HER SEXIEST MISTAKE

HER SEXIEST MISTAKE                       JILL SHALVIS
Posted:  Dec.  29, 2013
 
  Mia Appleby finally has the life she always wanted. She's escaped her trailer trash childhood and built a nice life for herself with a marketing job and a cute, little condo. But no matter how much baggage she's ditched from her past, she still hasn't managed to shake her greatest weakness-men. So when her new neighbor turns out to be single and oh-so-sexy, Mia's worried she's playing with fire . . .

Kevin McKnight can't get enough of his gorgeous neighbor, but after one amazing night, she's already showing him the door. Something tells him this is the way she handles most men. But Kevin is far from your average guy-and he's ready to prove it to Mia. When a blast from her past shakes up Mia's life in a major way, will she stick with her self-sufficient solo act . . . or take a chance leaning on Kevin's strong shoulders?

MY REVIEW:


     Mia Appleby ashamed of her poor Tennessee trailer park back ground, did everything she could to get out.  As a kid everyone knew she was different because she always thought she was better than them.  It really wasn’t that she just wanted better.  Mainly for her she knew there had to be better.

     So, even as a young girl she taught herself everything she could about everything she could at the library.  She knew knowledge was her ticket out of there.  To the point where she won a full ride scholarship to college.  Leaving Tennessee in the dust never and never looking back to the point of changing her accent and never speaking of her life before college or of her family at all.

     Relationships of any kind were not her thing but especially with men.  If she was with a man at it was for a one night stand and nothing more until her neighbor Kevin McKnight the biker babe who just moved in.  He was just sin on two wheels.  She had to have him so she went after him.  The problem being she woke up with him in his home after a mind blowing night of marathon sex.  Not her M.O. and her emotions clouded her mind not a good thing.

     Not to mention Kevin acted as if he was hurt she was bailing and not wanting to cuddle.  What is that all about?  Guys are usually relieved.  When she says about how biker dudes usually love ‘em and leave ‘em.  He says, “I’m not a biker, I’m a teacher who rides a bike.”  Or something along those lines.  They are both surprised and a little out of their element. 

     He was not just a onetime tumble in the hay or was he?  Mia was not a relationship girl or was she?  Hmmm?  You find yourself emotionally invested in all the characters and how they will finally emotionally connect to one another or if they ever really can.

     I enjoyed watching this crazy non-relationship unfold.  There are funny moments and sad moments that just break your heart.  Read and enjoy the ride of this dysfunctional non-couple and their non-extended family.  Provided by netgalley.com
