Olivia Patton’s life just imploded. One night with sexy hacker Grady Donovan seems like the perfect, ego-soothing plan—until an epic snowstorm shuts down the city and thwarts her morning-after escape. Now the only walk-of-shame she’ll be taking is right back to Grady’s door.

Forced to actually talk, Grady and Olivia realize they can’t stand each other. Forget another round in the bedroom—if it wasn’t his apartment, she’d shove Grady outside to freeze. But with all the blistering sexual tension flying around, a second night with the hacker might be exactly what she needs…if they don’t kill each other first.

Each book in the Chase Brothers series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out-of-order.

When I stumbled upon Sarah Ballance’s One Sexy Mistake on NetGalley, I knew I had to read it. The blurb sounded so cute! Plus,  I had read another of her Chase Brothers books before and loved it.

One Sexy Mistake was a really fun read. The premise of two people swiping right and then accidentally falling for each other was a cool take on today’s dating scene. I loved Grady and Olivia. They were so similar, but different too. The way the author intertwined the things that brought them together with the things that drove them apart was perfect.

There were only a couple of things I would have liked to have seen in One Sexy Mistake. First, I would have liked it to be a little steamier since it was based around two people meet on a hook up site. Second, I wish it had been a little bit longer. I wasn’t 100% sold on was the ending because it wrapped up way so quickly. I needed a little more build up to forever.

Otherwise, I thought One Sexy Mistake was perfect! I loved the writing, the characters and the situation they were in. I would definitely recommend it to contemporary romance readers.

    1. Thank you! I think it was just because it was a novella. I wanted more of these characters and their story! 🙂
