    Fun, light, romantic read

    This was a really great, light read. I was able to connect with the characters very early on and thought they were very well written. I loved Deri; she was such a down to earth, real woman, not an impossibly hot babe that you see in so many romance novels. She was a bit self-conscious, but the author didn't shove that fact down our throats like some other authors like to do (*COUGH* E.L. James *COUGH*). I seriously appreciated that about the book. Cole was great too. Was he stereotypical? Sure; the rich, powerful guy who just so happens to be incredibly kind and insanely sexy has been done before. It was impossible not to fall in love with him though. He seemed completely attainable, because he wasn't obsessed with looks as much as how Deri made him feel.

    Deri and Cole's relationship was sweet. They were on the same wavelength and complimented each other nicely. I was really anticipating the sex scene and it was done well, even though the circumstances surrounding that part made me sad. My absolute favorite scene was toward the beginning, after Deri hurts her leg at work, before she knows that Cole is actually the head of the company she works for. Coming home from the hospital she's high on painkillers and their conversation made me laugh out loud a couple of times, from her forgetting where she lives to her hilarious pronunciations of his last name. I loved the ending. The way Cole stood up for Deri was so amazing; it actually reminded me a bit of one of my favorite movies, Ever After. You'll get the reference after your read this book!

    I'm so glad I got the chance to read The Best Mistake. It was a very charming read with lovable characters and some very humorous dialogue. If you're looking for a entertaining, light, romantic read, I highly recommend this book!

    I absolutely LOVED this book. I thought Deri was a girl after my own heart. She’s obviously a hard worker and even though she’s supposed to be a spy, she’s got to be the worst one I have ever seen. She tries to be more helpful than sabotaging, she falls on top of her boss, when she finds out who he is, instead of getting closer to find out inside information, she does the opposite and distances herself from him. Of course, Cole, is a man who I definitely wouldn’t mind working for. He refuses to take no for an answer, recognized his soul mate in Deri, and while he wasn’t bright enough to figure out who the spy was when it was literally on paper in front of him, his gracious heart and great sense of humor won me over. When it all came out, he listened to his heart and showed Deri that no matter what her family says, she wasn’t a mistake.
