Staff Reviews

I have never rooted so hard for a pair as I did for Rake and Lizzie. In a two-night stand gone seriously sideways these two try and find a way to make the best of a complicated situation. You will laugh. You will cry. And you will fan your face from all the sexual tension.

— Katie

"Mazey Eddings’s writing is authentic, emotional, and intensely romantic! To me, it’s like a Taylor Swift song in book form." - New York Times bestselling author Ali Hazelwood

Mazey Eddings mixes passion and humor to create a luscious love story between two people stumbling through life and learning to open their hearts in Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake.

Lizzie has made endless mistakes. Kitchen fires, pyramid schemes, bangs (of the hair and human variety), you name it, she’s done it… and made a mess of it too. One mistake she’s never made is letting anyone get closer to her than a single hook-up. But after losing yet another bakery job due to her uncontrolled ADHD, she breaks her cardinal rule and has a two-night-stand that changes everything.

Once burned, twice shy, Rake has given up on relationships. And feelings. And any form of intimacy for that matter. Yet something about charming, chaotic Lizzie has him lowering his guard. For two nights, that is. Then it’s back home to Australia and far away from the pesky feelings Lizzie pulls from him. But when Lizzie tells him she’s got an unexpected bun in the oven, he’ll do whatever it takes to be a part of his child’s life… except be emotionally vulnerable, obviously. He’s never going to make that mistake again.

Through a series of mishaps, totally “platonic” single bed sharing, and an underground erotic baking scheme, Lizzie and Rake learn that even the biggest mistakes can have the most beautiful consequences.

"Eddings writes with compassion about Lizzie’s difficulties keeping on top of things, and her sex-positive attitude toward Lizzie's love life is a win for feminism." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Lizzie Blake's Best Mistake is phenomenal. Laugh-out-loud funny, filled with joy, as deliciously swoony as it is downright steamy, this is such a compassionate, affirming portrayal of neurodivergence, found family, and falling wildly in love. I couldn’t adore it more." —Chloe Liese, author of Two Wrongs Make a Right

"Steamy scenes and smart writing will keep you wanting more." —USA Today

"Joyful, voicey, sex-positive." —Buzzfeed

"This is a must-read steamy romance that is filled with personal growth, supportive, healthy relationships and friendships, and a message that the way in which someone thinks doesn’t determine their value, because everyone deserves to be loved as they are." —Library Journal

"Eddings' second novel is an unconventional and messy love story brimming with steamy scenes between the instantly attracted duo, and has a raw wit that will leave readers cackling." —Booklist
