The Best Mistake (Southern U O’Brien Brothers #1) By Cookie O’Gorman [Review]

The Best MistakeRELEASE DATE: April 23rd 2020

New-Adult, Contemporary, Romance.

Honor Tierney just wants one night with the playboy.

One hot, steamy, meaningless hookup, and then she’ll happily go back to reading her favorite books, studying to be an accountant and writing for the campus-paper-nobody-reads. Too bad she ends up in the wrong bed, with the wrong brother…who gives her the hottest night of her life.

Archer O’Brien just wants to play ball.
Well that, and for his brothers to stop acting out, so he won’t have to worry 24/7. As the oldest O’Brien and team captain, it’s his duty to make sure they don’t drink too much, party too much, or get in too much trouble. But when she walks into his bedroom—mistaking him for his brother—life throws him a curveball.

She’s determined to guard her heart. He’s not giving up.

And when Honor gets assigned to cover the Wolves baseball team, it’s game on.

This new adult sports romance features one hot (and hilarious) case of mistaken identity and a sexy set of brothers guaranteed to make you swoon.

Sometimes, the best mistakes are worth making.

* ARC Received from the author in exchange for an honest review *

I don’t read sports romance much but when the author approached me for the review opportunity, I couldn’t resist because Cookie’s books are always fun and adorkable. So far, I’ve enjoyed all the books I’ve read by this author, so why not. As expected, this book was so much fun to read even though it has a predictable plotline. The story was sexy, hilarious, and fun. I quite enjoyed both the main characters and their romance was definitely swoon worthy. This was actually the author’s first new adult romance and she did a great job.

The story follows Honor Tierney and Archer O’Brien. Honor has entered her college life but she’s still a virgin. To get rid of her v-card she attends the college party to have a one night stand with the notorious player Baylor O’Brien. She never saw him and mistook Archer for Baylor. Archer is the oldest of the O’Brien brothers and the responsible one who looked after his team. In the room, when Honor finally discovers her mistake, she quickly escapes but Archer is determined to pursue her. He tries to convince her that they’re right for each other. Honor tries to avoid him but things get hard for her when she’s assigned to cover the Wolves baseball team and hence begins the start of something new.

Honor is a pretty likeable, smart, and relatable character. She’s a cute dork who loves reading and writing articles for her campus newspaper. Archer is absolutely swoon worthy. He’s very protective of his family and his charming personality stole my heart. The romance between Honor and Archer was well developed. It was cute how their relationship grew from friendship to love. I enjoyed all the interactions between them.  The other four O’Brien brothers were also pretty interesting. We have twins Baylor and Chase. They’re total opposite to each others personalities. On one side we have Baylor, the notorious playboy, and on the other side we have Chase, a shy and charming nerd. He prefers books more than girls. Next we have tough Bad boy Dex. He’s not a very friendly type of guy and his answers are always one worded. He’s a mysterious character and my kind of guy. And last but not the least there’s Finn, the clever brother in the group. Honestly, I enjoyed every one of them including the O’Brien sister Emmy who’s also honor’s roommate.

The storyline was fun and very much entertaining. Despite the predictability, I enjoyed every aspect of it. The characters made this book even more fun to read. The pacing was good and I’m glad that it doesn’t have any draggy parts. The romance was cute with enough heat. I’m glad the story also focused on family relationships, and friendship. I loved Cookie’s writing style. It was simple and easy to understand. And also loved the dual POVs.

Overall, It was a good read! The story was fun and cute, and not too cheesy. I can’t wait to read the other boys stories and I hope it’s either Chase or Dex story next.

Recommend it?

If you’re looking for a clean and sweet New Adult contemporary romance then definitely pick this up.


[4/5 Stars]

    Just reporting back that I read this one Saturday. It was cute. Not exactly mind blowing, but I had fun reading it. I hope she writes books about all the kids in the family.
