Ladies, do you ever want to read some quick and hot. Well, this is the story for you. I read the summary which pretty much gives everything away. I still really enjoyed. I think I was giggling ...more

When Lacey’s plane was delayed she decided to rent a car and drive the rest of the way home. She was tired and decided to go to Ran’s place rather than her own and surprise him. Little did she know that Ran wasn’t the one sleeping in his bed, his cousin Rick was.
Rick had just come off a sixteen hour shift at the hospital and Ran told him he could crash at the condo. They weren’t exp ...more
There is just something about that situation that I found extremely funny. Neither of them was at fault and things were stopped before they went to far, but neither could shake the memory, making the next couple of times they saw each other very uncomfortable.
I liked that Ran did ...more

Whoa, this is one scorching hot little novella! I think what makes this so hot is the forbidden. As the reader, you know that Lacey is making a mistake...and that mistake goes pretty far before she realizes who is in her boyfriend's bed. It's hot and really smexy!
Then you get into the story and get to know these characters which I really liked. Ran and Rick are best friends as well as cousins. One is a doctor, one is a lawyer. Being cousins, they are built a lot alike. The difference i ...more
I've been in a "Erotica" mood for awhile and I needed something to read that would help that mood. Glad I finally picked up "The Best Mistake" to read. It was a short ebook, but it was worth it. Now I look forward to reading more books from Kate Watterson.
Lacey Billings comes home after a week of traveling to a financial convention that she had to go to. She thinks she's coming home to her boyfriend, Ran. She wants to surprise Ran in a perfect way...in bed o ...more

This is a novella about how one of the many threesomes in the romance novel world come together. It’s a bit skeevy (for me, at least) that the two men are cousins. They’re not having sex with each other but I still find it a bit weird that two men related to each other (in fact, they grew up as close as brothers) would be having sex with the same woman, at the same time. Just me? Maybe. I guess that’s somethin ...more
Once in on the situation, Ran is not upset, and he doesn't want the two people he cares about most to be either. He thinks the best way for everyone to get over what happened is to follo ...more
The author was determined to explore the idea of three individuals deciding to live together, so that's what she concentrated on.
Hesitation on the part of the girl was given attention, since there is the social stigma to consider, but I was surprised how supportive her boy friend was about the situation; how confidently he guided her into his best friend's arms, because he felt that she would be happier with both of them in her life.
I was just taken aback by t ...more
Lacey comes home early from her business trip ready to be welcomed home by her boyfriend, Ran. As she slips into the dark quietness of their bedroom, she puts the moves on who she thinks is Ran, only to discover that it’s really Ran’s look alike cousin, Rick. Mortified from the embarrassing encounter, Lacey tries to move on from the incident, only she can’t stop thinking about how good it felt kissing and touching Rick.
Rick has always been attracted to Lacey, and now that ...more
The Best Mistake was a fun, quick story to read. It all starts off with a case of mistaken identity and a deliciously enticing scene that’s sadly aborted. Lacey Billings thought that she was making love to her boyfriend, Ran, but to her shock, it’s his cousin Rick. The truth comes out and Ran’s initial amusement to the mistake turns into concern, and develops into a wicked plan that changes all three of their lives.
I liked the easy going, everyday introduction of th ...more
You know how sometimes, even though we aren't supposed to, we judge books solely on their cover? This is one of those cases. I had this vision in my head of how this story should be and for some reason the vision fell flat. I could blame it on the fact that I have high standards when it comes to "erotica", not just everyone can write that kind of story.
As far a ...more
Lacey accidently pounces her boyfriends best friend / cousin. While Ran, the bf, is fine with what happened and even finds it a bit amusing, neither of them do. The problem? Rick is secretly in love with Lacey? Lacey feels guilt because she enjoyed and still wants more? . . . Oh yeah! Thankfully Ran has the s ...more
When a book is labelled 'erotica' and 'menage', I expect at least some kinky sex. But all we get is this:
Scene 1: Vanilla almost sex with girl on top with guy 1.
Scene 2: Vanilla sex in the hall with guy 2.
Scene 3: Vanilla sex with girl on top with guy 1, then vanilla sex with guy 2.
There are some brief mentions of a shower, and a new bed. And I do mean brief.
Other than that, there is supposed to be a lot of UST between girl and ...more
The story is rather simple and the summary says it all.
Lets just say Watterson kept it really simple so the reader wouldnt get too interested in anything else but the sex scenes.
The story is short and thats probably the reason why I had some trouble with the characters. 17.000 words are just not enough to get to know Lacey, Ran, Rick and their personalities. Still, its fun ...more
Coming home after a late flight, Lacey has missed her boyfriend, Ran, and can’t help but want to catch up on lost time. She crawls into bed to show just how much she missed him but soon discovers he isn’t her boyfriend, but his cousin, Rick.
Ran laughed the story off but neither Lacey nor Ran can do the same. All they do is think back and linger on what might have been. Ran doesn’t want to put either relationship at risk so ...more
Passionate, loving and just the right size all the makings of a really good man and apparently book too. This out of the Box “fun” triangle shows the interesting dynamic between A man his fiancé and his best friend when they make the best of mistakes. Blood pumping and sizzling hot Ms Watterson creates a contemporary novel with a sexy edge, and dammit she does it well.
Breath stealing and tantalizingly hot, watch this story swell when 3 fantasies come true and stay t ...more
This was a very fun short story. It opens up with Lacey coming home after a week out of town to suprise her boyfriend....she slips into bed only to find out a bit later that it is not her boyfriend. Talk about awkward moment....I have to say I did find this very funny.
The situation did cause a lot of tension even though neither were at fault and I ejoyed reading how they came to terms with this and moved on to a v ...more

The Best Mistake
By Kate Watterson
Quick but good read. Lacey comes home and thinks to put the moves on her boyfriend only it’s his cousin (who looks a lot like him). The difficult decision to live a ménage lifestyle was handled well. The boyfriend was supportive and wanting her happiness which is necessary in these relationships. That the author addressed Lacey’s apprehension was good to read. I liked that I got all 3 POV’s.
This was my first read by Kat Watters ...more
