    Cute Story

    Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book. I chose to review it and this in no way impacts my opinion of it. Due to the romance kick I seem to have found myself on, this novel sounded perfect to help fill the need. And it was the perfect read as it was sexy and delicious and takes place during a snow storm and it is getting colder here and getting closer to snow in my hometown. This was my first novel by Ballance, it really didn’t disappoint and I think I will have to pick up some of her other novels. It was a quick, easy read that kept me reading late into the night so I could finish it. The connection between Grady and Olivia was wonderful and I absolutely adored the pair of them. There were a couple things I didn’t overly enjoy about the novel but they were small things that didn’t ruin the story for me. One of those things is that the novel wasn’t as steamy as I would have hoped. Being centered around a one night stand, it didn’t really get to the goods and seemed to glaze over it. I would have wanted a bit more for a romance but still enjoyed it overall. The other thing I didn’t like was by 11% you knew exactly what was going to create the drama and how it was going to go. I would have preferred a bit more mystery in the matter because I just spent the rest of the novel wondering when it would hit the fan. Other then those two little quirks, I really enjoyed this novel and can’t wait to see what else Ballance has in store for me. I highly recommend this novel to any and all romance fans.

    hot geek

    One sexy mistake is very quick fun read. It is in a way Insta-love between two geeks. Who are both very attractive and both searching for the things that the other one doesn’t. But one fatal night, one date site and one snow storm changes their life forever. So at first I loved the plot the funny dialogues the bedroom scene’s both Olivia and Grady. But later in the story I was a little bit annoyed with Olivia and her way of thinking. In the ends all fall in places and we see their HEA. Fun hot quick read. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

    One Fun, Hilarious, Sexy Mistake

    5 stars for making me all happy teary at the end. What a fun read, just like all the other's in this series. Confirmed Geek Grady gets his story. The banter between Grady and Olivia from start to finish is fun and hilarious. The story moves at a great fast pace while the two are stuck together in a snowstorm after a one night stand. The star wars sheets make a reappearance.

    Sexy and laugh out loud romance!

    One Sexy Mistake is part of the Chase Brothers series but with a twist, as it features Grady, technically a Chase brother-in-law. His sister Estelle is the heroine of book 1 of the series, 5 Things I Love About You, who met Crosby Chase while housesitting for Grady in his New York apartment. That was the first of a delightfully fun and flirty series featuring various Chase siblings. But we’ve gone back to where it all began with single man and computer geek (err.. genius) Grady holed up in his apartment. He ‘s not looking for anything complicated when he goes searching for a one night stand on Tinder. And as luck would have it, he finds the perfect match. Olivia is looking for exactly the same thing – one night of great sex with no strings. She’s a computer geek too, though currently unemployed after someone at her company released some beta security software she was developing before it was finished, causing a security leak and getting her fired. (And if that wasn’t bad enough, her ex dumped her then too, classy and supportive guy that he was). One look at Grady’s profile picture and his interest in computers like her, and their connection is settled even before they meet in person. But when their night is over there’s a small problem. An overnight blizzard has stranded Olivia at Grady’s apartment building and she’s going to be stuck there all day, and likely for another night. Awkward! They might have to actually talk to each other, while putting the most fabulous night of sex out of their minds because it’s not supposed to happen again. But stuck together for the foreseeable future, they find out just how much in common they have, besides their bedroom compatibility. Is it going to lead them down the road to happiness or ruin a good thing before it can really start? Every story in this series has been just delightful, full of interesting characters, witty banter, some emotional moments and a sexy romance. One Sexy Mistake follows that trend and delivers a laugh out loud holiday romance with the classic ‘we’re trapped in a blizzard!’ trope – only this time, the fact that there will be sexual shenanigans is a done deal. They’ve already HAD that when they get stuck together and the way they have to deal with each other in the daytime versus in the night makes for some amusing scenes as well as some more serious conversations. The fact that they both are in the computer security industry means they’ve got a lot in common (at one point, they realize it’s a bit more than they expected) and I particularly enjoyed their ‘Star Wars’ versus ‘Star Trek’ banter. Their chemistry is off the charts and they share some steamy scenes together, even as they are both trying to convince themselves that they don’t want anything more to come out of the weekend once Olivia can finally make her way home again. Of course, their plans are all for naught as they start falling for each other in short order. There’s a super sweet and quite hilarious happy for now ending to their story ( and a delightful epilogue to bring the whole gang together). I’m hoping Ms. Ballance will find some more Chase relatives in the woodwork to write about next.
