"I, Denise Cooke, take thee, Redford DeMoss, to be my lawful husband..."

No, wait...I did that already--three years ago in a Vegas chapel after one too many Long Island Iced Teas. I married a hunky U.S. Marine I'd met only hours before. (The uniform did it.) The wedding night--week--was spectacular. Then Redford went back to the Gulf. And I went back to my real life as a New York City financial planner...and filed for an annulment.

I'm dating Barry the TV producer these days, but I think about Redford...a lot. And now, thanks to an upcoming IRS audit, I'm about to see ex-husband again. So why am I flustered? He's probably married, and I have--um, what's his name. It's not as if Redford plans to take me back...or take me--gulp--to bed. Besides, I'd never make the same mistake twice. Not even my favorite one...

A tax audit brings Denise Cooke and her ex-husband Redford back together. Three years were not enough to make her forget his logic defying effect, and she fears that seeing him again will once again awaken her best-forgotten wild side. Certainly their brief time together in Los Vegas was proof enough that she was incapable of maintaining her ordinary logic where Redford Demoss is concerned. While their marriage lasted long enough to file taxes together, their subsequent annulment prevented any further contact until now. Denise has never told current boyfriend about her first husband. While their relationship lacks the vivid spark that characterized her relationship with Redmond, it is stable, comfortable and predictable. After two years of mild courtship, she accepts his proposal just before she must see Redford again. And while the conclusion of this story might seem rather inevitable given the genre, the humor, levity and delight of the journey makes MY FAVORITE MISTAKE a delightful read. Author Stephanie Bond pens a vividly refreshing romance in MY FAVORITE MISTAKE. Perhaps her own past corporate world lends the fabulously entertaining heroine her convincing charm. While Ms Bond's background is computing and Denise Cooke's is financials, the commonality of the carefully controlled office experience lends the novel a crisp reality while sensual temptation gives Denise an even more convincing edge. From the running of the brides and Denise¿s ongoing eBay bid to get her dress back, to the sensual temptation of the hunky former marine, Ms Bond¿s deft, first person narrative departs from Harlequin¿s usual narrative style. Indeed, MY FAVORITE MISTAKE certainly illustrates the author¿s gift for weaving original, brilliant romance that readers find impossible to put down. MY FAVORITE MISTAKE comes very highly recommended.

I was very disappointed with this book. Stephanie Bond usually delivers, but not with this one. The Blaze series are generally more passion filled and sensual than other romance books and I did not fill that in this book. It took until page 198(near the end of the book) for any heat to jump off the pages between Denise and Redford, the main characters in the book. And, then I still wasn't captivated by the love scene. It seemed like they were wrestling as opposed to making love. I also did not like the narrative completely coming from Denise's point of view, it left the reader disconnected from how Redford was feeling. I feel the characters had great potential but the story line was not captivating or sensual enough for me.
