If he’s a mistake, she’s ready to make him her favorite mistake.

Mallory Hurst has tried to live a life that makes up for past mistakes. But now she faces a huge ethical dilemma. Her pharmaceutical company’s unapproved, off-label use of a medication puts lives at risk, and her protests have fallen on deaf ears.

Hoping a trip home will clear her head, she boards a plane for California. And strikes up a conversation with a handsome stranger.

Joe Mason recently learned that the man he’s called father all his life… isn’t. At least that explains why he never measured up to his older brothers. Flying to meet his biological father for the first time, he meets a sleek, sexy woman who makes him want to mess up her perfect hair.

Shared conversation leads to a shared drink between flights, then when their flight is canceled, a shared bed overnight—where their rush of attraction explodes into a night of much-needed kinky fun.

Yet a night of hot, messy sex won’t fix anything—in fact, blowing off steam could have blown their lives all to hell…

Warning: Contains a hot cop, a neat and tidy executive, dirty talk, kink in an airport, mile-high shenanigans, a little foot fetish fun. And love, of course.

This book started great - a chance meeting, a sizzling attraction, and some naughty but harmless fun. Sounds great right... meh!

I thoroughly enjoyed the first half of this book. A bit flirty and cheeky and some hot risky sex thrown in, I lived vicariously through this couple. But then things start to get messy, complications set in and I got bored. The story slowed down rather than speeding up and the added elements of best friends, crappy boyfriend, and job and father drama just made the story complicated and too much trouble to even be bothered about, meaning I had to drag my way through the last 20%. 

Sometimes less is more... just 2 stars.
