Easton Westbrook entered my life like an arrogant, grumpy, wrecking ball, and refused to leave.
One Little Mistake, an all-new enemies-to-lovers romance from Avery Maxwell, is available now!
Our banter is addicting, and nothing I do or say will make him change his mind. But when his mind becomes focused solely on me, I run.
I can’t afford to give my heart away again. Not when I’m barely surviving with the broken one I have.
I have walls up for a reason. Reasons that are none of his business, but Easton is used to getting what he wants. And when he decides he wants me, I’m not sure I’ll survive it.
Lexi Heart entered my life like an arrogant, bossy, she-devil in heels, and I can’t get her out of my head.
She’s always ten steps ahead, and I have to admit, I’m intrigued. With every lash of her sharp tongue, she puts me in my place. But when I peel back the layers of her tough girl exterior, I see the broken shell she’s hiding, and my own walls come crashing down.
We quickly learn that what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay there, and I know I’m done for. I want this girl in every sense of the word, but can I convince her to take a chance on us? Or will the damage from her past be too much, even for true love?
Join Easton and Lexi in their highly emotional journey to a happily ever after. One Little Mistake is an enemy to lovers, accidental marriage romance that will draw you in and refuse to let you go.
I was late for work because of this book. I couldn’t put it down! (I had to eventually… I really was late.) But then when I went back to it, I stuck with it and finished it in the 2nd sitting.
Easton is such a good character. One Little Mistake is written in alternating points of view, so we really get to see inside his head. And he was so likable! Even when he was being a total cow, which he definitely was at times.
And Lexi was a thoroughly likable character too. She is suffering hard, with some very heart breaking issues to work her way through. She doesn’t always handle things the best way, but she has a gentle heart & tries to do what’s right.
When the two of them first met, there are sparks and fireworks, but not all for necessarily good reasons. That changed reasonably quickly, but Lexi is dead set against anything progressing between them. Fortunately though for us, the readers, Easton is made of stern stuff & wages a war to win the girl.
This enemies to lovers romance has it all for me. It is emotional and definitely tugs on the heartstrings, while totally immersing me in their world through clear descriptions and well filled in back ground stories and characters. And I love the family and friends that share the story with our main two people. Their family is huge, and nobody is left out when it comes to having the opportunity to develop a well rounded personality. There are plenty of people in this story worthy of having their own tales told!
And while this is the first in a new series (and the first book by Avery Maxwell that I’ve read), it becomes apparent fairly quickly that this not the first time that readers have met these characters. And even though it’s easy to read and follow the story if you start with this one, there were times where I wished I understood a bit more about what was being referred to. And considering how good this book is, there would be no hardship involved in holding onto this one and side stepping over to start with the Broken Hearts series first. And I’m guessing that if you get sucked in even half as much as I did, you’ll be ploughing through the series pretty quickly anyway!
One Little Mistake is a very easy ‘5 thumbs up’ for me & I think it’s good news that this is just the first of the Westbrook stories. I’ll definitely be there to read what comes next.
Thank you to the author Avery Maxwell and Social Butterfly PR for sharing a copy of this e-book with me.
Avery Maxwell is an American Romance Author who loves wine, sexy stories, pizza, and her family.
Avery is a hot mess of a mom to four wildly sweet mini-humans and two fur babies. She spends far too much time in her pj’s and trips over herself multiple times a day. Accident-prone is probably a fair assessment.
Having grown up in small-town Vermont, Avery often jokes about being the most naïve person in the room. Luckily, she’s used that small-town charm to write character-driven contemporary romances that have you laughing one minute, and crying the next.
When she isn’t refereeing (three little boys require a lot of whistle blowing), or cuddled up with her real-life Prince Charming, you can find her tucked away with a bottle of wine (because those steamy scenes don’t write themselves!), or coaching her daughter’s basketball team.
Avery now lives in North Carolina where she brings life, love, and a happily ever after to every character she writes.
