Right Kind of Mistake, a new adult romance, by Rebecca Thomas is now live!
Haylie Keene wants to put the past behind her and move on after her jock boyfriend cheats on her. Her friends convince her that a hook-up (or maybe a little revenge sex) is the best place to start. Except she’s steering clear of hockey players, as in, never ever again.
Alaska State all-star defenseman Cam Erickson is a calculated risk taker. He weighs the pros and cons and knows Haylie is a bad investment on so many levels, but something about her gets under his skin. And once he makes up his mind, he pulls out all the stops to make her his.
Haylie soon realizes that Cam’s quiet charm and unfaltering confidence is like a magnet she doesn’t want to refuse. Their chemistry is undeniable and maybe the rules she set up for herself are worth reconsidering.
Rebecca Thomas has a love-hate relationship with Alaska, where she lives with her bush pilot husband and two teenaged sons. When she’s not reading, writing, or playing board games, she’s cheering for her sons at their hockey games and tennis matches.
A reluctant reader as a child, Rebecca didn’t become interested in books until her teen years when she discovered historical romance. Now she loves all sub-genres of romance and can’t decide which one is her favorite.
Rebecca earned a bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of Alaska and she was employed in the airline industry for several years before working in her current position as a program manager in higher education.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
4 out of 5 stars
Right Kind of Mistake is a solid new adult romance. I loved the plot. I loved the characters. I loved how they were together.
However, while I did love Haylie's character for the most part there were two things that she did in this book that really annoyed me and made me want to smack her. The first was her decision to not date any hockey players because she got her heart broken by one. Honestly, whenever the heroine does this in a book I just roll my eyes because I find it kind of ridiculous especially when the hero is so obviously nothing like the douchey ex. The second thing I was annoyed with was Haylie's decision to pursue the boy from her science class that is so clearly not for her especially given the way she describes him. Haylie was just such a mess and I really wanted to enter the book and smack some sense into her. Lol. Anywho, the big highlight of this book for me was Cam. He really was just all around wonderful and swoon-worthy and from the very first glimpse of him I was sold. He really just checked off all the boxes for what I consider a great NA hero and then some. I mean, come on, he's an athlete and he could sing. He was literally everything and I couldn't get enough of his perfection.
Overall, Right Kind of Mistake was a a really good romance and I'm really looking forward to seeing what the author has in store for these characters in book two especially given how this book ended.
