His Best Mistake is the story of Stella, a courtroom artist, and Jack, a currency trader. Stella is nursing a broken heart and has taken to her cottage in the Highlands to get over her hurt in learning that she’d played the role of the Other Woman. She was painting away her pain when a strange vehicle drove by her property and ended up in an accident. The driver was gorgeous and gruff and, it turns out, he is the brother of her former flame’s fiancée. He showed up to read her the riot act, and Lucy King did a good job of making him a first class jerk from the beginning. Too bad for Stella, he didn’t stay a jerk.

After waking up to an empty bed after a night of spectacular loving, Stella feels both disappointed and relieved. At least until a few weeks later when she gets the shock of her life. Lucy King made this story enjoyable by switching up the roles a bit. Though Stella did have self-esteem issues, she was the strong one in this story. The one who tried to make herself better and do better while Jack was stuck in a rut of mourning and misery. His Best Mistake should have been a depressing read and, at times, it was mighty frustrating, but overall this is a fascinating story about getting what you want when you least expect it. There were plenty of times I just wanted Stella to throw her arms up and kick Jack to the curb, because he really was pretty bad for most of the story. Thankfully, the heroine more than made up for what this hero lacked.
