In the epilogue of the prequel to this book, Hot Island Nights (Harlequin Blaze), the heroine of that book, Elizabeth, is flabbergasted to see sworn enemies, Violet and Martin (the hero/heroine of this book) getting off of a plane together to visit her in Australia. Her fiance Nathan, seeing her astonishment, says to her "Let's hear their story."
Yes, Nathan, let's! And what a story this is!
Violet is Elizabeth's best friend. Martin was Elizabeth's fiance. The two of them constantly sniped and bickered at each other for the entire six years they've known each other. She called him 'Droopy Drawers' and wondered how he didn't bore people to death. He merely sneered superciliously at her wild clothes and even wilder manner.
When Elizabeth throws Martin over and runs away to Australia both Violet and Martin are left a bit adrift. But at heart they are two decent people who both loved Elizabeth and Violet feels very sorry for Martin. So she buys him a bottle of Peach Schnapps.
Who knew a bottle of Peach Schnapps would set off a torrid love affair between two sworn enemies?
I loved this book! Violet and Martin had crazy chemistry and they quickly figured out that all of that animosity was simple re-directed passion. They had been in complete denial for years that they'd had the hots for each other.
In addition to the great romantic & sexual chemistry there is excellent characterization of both parties. Violet is a wild child because she is hiding an immense amount of pain from being rejected by her family.Read more ›
There is nothing like a new Sarah Mayberry book. I actively anticipate the release of her books, which is why I was thrilled to learn she had a new "Blaze-type" book out called HER BEST WORST MISTAKE.
The hero and hero, Martin St. Clair and Violet Sutcliffe, were secondary characters in Sarah Mayberry's Blaze, Hot Island Nights. And I remember when I was reading Hot Island Nights, I thought there had to be something simmering beneath the surface of the relationship between Violet and Martin. Their interactions were so volatile and fraught with so much disapproval and...tension. Well in HER BEST WORST MISTAKE readers discover all that tension was sexual in nature.
Violet never thought Martin was a good match for her best friend Elizabeth. Despite her misgivings, she intends to stand up with her when Elizabeth marries Martin, a man who has the blessing of Elizabeth's wealthy grandfather--whom Martin works for.
Martin in turn, disapproves of Violet. He finds her too everything: too flamboyant, too flirtatious, too impetuous. He's quite staid and has pulled himself up from extremely humble beginnings. Marrying Elizabeth is the icing on the top of his well-ordered world. Then she dumps him and jets off to Australia in search of her biological father. He's stunned and not about to let the relationship go that easy but a trip to Australia finds Elizabeth already involved with another man and Martin finally realizes that they are over--and never meant to be.
Neither Violet nor Martin expects to see each other again. Elizabeth had been the person holding them together. But Violet realizes why Martin has always irritated her.Read more ›
WOW! I thoroughly enjoyed reading "Her Best Worst Mistake" and I have to say this book rates as my best impulse buy on Amazon.
You've probably read a dozen books with this storyboard but what makes this one different is the chemistry and tension between these polar opposite characters that sizzles off the pages.
I loved every minute of this book; it was Hot, Sexy and engaging. The writing was sharp, witty and impressive, I breezed through this book; there was no stopping until I was done.
I would highly recommend reading "Her best worst mistake" I can't believe I almost over looked this author and this book, Sarah Mayberry you have impressed the hell out of me and I can't wait to read more of your work.
I love the undeniable chemistry between Violet and Martin and the way they obsessed over the other. I liked the victorian gentleman feel of Martin which reminded me a lot of the historical romance heroes I read - I read many Victorian era novels so it had some of that feel to it. And I liked Violets modern attitude so I felt it was a very nice mix of old and new (even though Martin was 32 but he definitely had an old soul which I appreciated). I mean even the way he had sex with Elizabeth had been boring and one position like one would a wife in Victorian times while with Violet it was unpredictable, with passion and oh so good like one would with a mistress though clearly Violet means more to Martin than just great sex and vise versa :)
I really fell in love with Martin and goodness did he do and say the right things *sigh* Violet was a worthy heroine and they truly deserved each other.
The reason I knocked down a star was because even though I understood violets dilemma and past hurts I still think she waited too long to tell Elizabeth the truth but what bothered me more was that at times, it felt more of a summary read. Still overall, I loved the characters, they were quite endearing and it was an enjoyable read. This is a keeper and future re read!
I haven't read Elizabeth and Nathan's story but I will download it and read ASAP.
