Big Mistake - Laney Powell and Tessa Blake
Reading Challenge Category: Free from Kindle Unlimited
Out of the friend zone and into the fire... Garrett Beck’s been my best friend since we were toddlers—she’s like a sister to me, or at least that’s what I’ve always thought. Beck is family, and it’s my job to make sure she’s safe and happy. But lately when I look at Beck, family’s not what I see. I see someone who makes my pulse race and my body sit up and take notice. I see a woman. And then we get drunk on a birthday trip, and one thing leads to another … I don’t know what’s worse: waking up in bed with my best friend, or knowing that, no matter what, we can’t do this again. But I have a feeling I’m about to find out. Beck Garrett’s been my best friend for as long as I can remember—the next thing to family. Add to that the fact that his relationships last for a few months at best, and he’s the absolute worst boyfriend candidate around. So why did I just wake up in bed with him? Garrett says it was just a drunken mistake, and we should go on the way we have been—BFFs and nothing more. And he’s right; we can’t do this again. Our friendship is more important than what we just did. Isn’t it?
I’d actually looked for a Laney Powell book to read having enjoyed two of her Flirt Club offerings. So, I was surprised to find this one that had co-authors, one of which is Powell. The author’s note at the end explains that it is mainly Tessa Blake’s brainchild and that Powell only wrote the first draft and how that came to pass. I like author’s notes like this that explain how the book came in to being and the process that it took to get to the end product that I have just finished reading. It feels like a sneak peek into something that is usually hidden from us, the reader. I really enjoyed the story it truly grips you. You feel invested in the story right from the beginning, which starts with the middle. You already know the catalyst to the end when you are reading the beginning and getting to know the characters. This does take away a little of the anticipation, but it is the main event, so you are presented with it, so you know what we are working with. The characters Beck and Garrett and really likeable and you are rooting for them to live happily ever after. Every time he kisses her, you can feel the chemistry between them. You can tell that they have genuine feelings for one another; it’s not just physical. The book is really well-written and thoroughly enjoyable.
