Review: Best Worst Mistake by Lia Riley

Title: Best Worst Mistake

Author: Lia Riley


Sometimes the worst mistakes turn out to be the best…

Smoke jumper Wilder Kane once reveled in the rush from putting out dangerous wildfires. But after a tragic accident, he’s cut himself off from the world, refusing to leave his isolated cabin. When a headstrong beauty bursts in, Wilder finds himself craving the fire she ignites in him, but letting anyone near his darkness would be a mistake.

After her Hollywood life went up in smoke, Quinn Higsby decided to leave Tinseltown behind and return to Brightwater to care for her ailing father. She spends her days in a small bookstore, until her peaceful existence is up-ended by a fascinating but damaged man. Quinn is determined not to be scared off by Wilder, not once she’s experienced the heat of his passions.

But when an arsonist targets the community and Wilder is accused, he must confront the ghosts of his past. Will his desire for Quinn burn him up or will he be able to tame the wildness inside and rekindle a hope for their future?


5 out of 5 stars

I wish I could use emojis in reviews because honestly I don't think I have the words to accurately describe my love for this book and Wilder Kane! This book was so good. So. Good. Best Worst Mistake was without a doubt the best book in this series and at the moment my favorite book by this author.

Like I said, I loved Wilder Kane so much that their isn't a word to fully explain my love for the eldest Kane brother. Wilder was the perfect brooding romance hero reminding me so much of the type of characters that got me to love romance books in the first place. And then we have Quinn. She was the type of heroine that I've come to love in romances recently. She and Wilder were a couple that really gets under you skin and into your head.

In terms of this book's place in the overall series, I loved how in the end it tied up all the three stories in a nice, neat bow. By the end of Best Worst Mistake there are no loose ends and you know everything that you need to know about the Kane's including the full extent of what happened to their parents and why it affected Wilder so much more than it did Sawyer and Archer. It's a little heartbreaking but in a therapeutic way that makes the end of the book all the more satisfying.

Overall, this book was a really sweet romance with a nice dose of mystery to keep things really interesting. I loved it so much and while the ending of this book was more than satisfying I'm still sad to see these character's stories come to end.
