My Perfect Mistake Review & Blitz by Kelly Siskind

My Perfect Mistake

Over the Top #1

By: Kelly Siskind
Releasing April 5, 2016

Forever Yours


What happens in Aspen is definitely not staying in Aspen . . .
A girls' trip to Aspen was exactly what Shay needed to forget about her toxic ex-boyfriend. She's got her girls, pristine slopes for skiing, and hot guys everywhere. Of course, her epic self-rediscovery goes completely to hell when a wild (and deliciously hot) skier knocks Shay on her ass . . . and war is declared. 

Kolton doesn't know what it is about Shay that makes him lose it. Not just his cool---although she does have an unholy gift for that---but his restraint. When anger gives way to explosive chemistry, they're both shaken with the intensity of it. But somewhere between lust and hate, Kolton and Shay realize they could have something real . . . if they don't kill each other first.

To be honest I skipped over this book like 3 times in the past week and yesterday I gave up and said what the hell I'm going to read it. Needless to say once I started it I couldn't put it down and I really didn't want too. I stayed up until it was finished and when I looked at the time (5:30 am) all I could say it was so damn good I didn't care I was loosing some much needed sleep.

Siskind is a new author to me and I am thanking the book heavens that she was sent to me. This book has to be one of the funniest and romantic books I have read so far this year!

The characters are absolutely great. We meet Shay who is in Aspen getting over her ex "the dick" they were together for 5 years but somewhere along the way she lost herself so when her girlfriends and her decide for a girls weekend she is all in and she hopes to find a hot ski guy but she didn't expect to crash right into him.

Kolton is a single dad and works hard with his outerwear company. When his friends and him are Aspen he starts wondering if he will ever find someone to share his life with but nothing is going right on this trip so far and it starts with one crazy ass woman who is about to take him on the ride of his life.

I loved these two!! They had such great chemistry that tops off their funnier nicknames. These two actually don't meet on the best of terms but oh man you can tell how fun and exciting their relationship is going to be. To me this two should win an award for couple of the year that's just how great they are!

Normally in books I don't see a lot of wooing but I'll be damned Kolton is the KING of wooing! Not only is he sexy but that man does the littlest things in the world just to get Shay to finally go out with him and give him a chance. McDonald's fries, movies and pez dispensers are all part of his plan. While I was reading all I kept thinking was if Shay doesn't want him I would gladly take him off her hands.

Did I mention this book is funny? And not a little funny I mean omg laugh out loud funny. I thought Siskind did an excellent job with the comedy in this story.

The storyline wasn't cheesy and it was realistic. Them meeting, getting together, and falling in love doesn't happen in the span of a few days or weeks nope it takes months. And it's months of them not only spending time in the bedroom but actually getting to know one another.

Siskind was just added to my auto buy list and I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of this series. Their friends hit it off in this book so I'm excited to see what path Siskind will take each couple on.

If you're looking for a funny, sexy, romantic book that is filled with wooing I highly recommend reading My Perfect Mistake!

He tosses me my anti-sexy helmet. “We should take another run before we head down.”
I catch it and shake my head, unsure I heard him right. “Sorry, we? Shouldn’t you be skiing with your buddies? It’s bad enough you hijacked my lunch and I have to sit at a table with you again tonight. Now you want to ski together? Thanks but no thanks.”
He lifts his arms over his head and stretches from side to side. A sliver of skin peeks out below his jacket. “The guys called it quits early. Worried you can’t keep up?”
As fucking if. The dude’s obviously egging me on, but he snaps my self-control. Everything between us is action, reaction. Spark and flame. What’s his deal, anyway? Why sit with me and ski with me when we’re worse than cats and dogs? If he thinks firing me up means he’s getting a replay of last night, he’s mistaken. Still, I need to beat his ass on the slopes. “Fine. I’ll take that run. It’s about time I put you in your place. But let’s be clear. We can have lunch and ski together, but there will be no sex.” A teen walking by stops midstride and doubles over in a fit of giggles.
“I didn’t catch that.” Kolton leans forward and cups a hand around his helmeted ear. “Do you mind speaking up?”
What a total douche.
“Everyone is wise until he speaks,” I mumble, recalling my granddad’s words.
Kolton straightens, a question passing across his face. “Are you Irish? My granddad used to say that all the time. Along with, ‘Shut your mouth and eat your dinner.’”
I laugh, abrupt and maniacal, the sharp sound catching me off guard. The energy shifts between us, like the first time I understood my Spanish teacher—the foreign becoming familiar. I frown, unsure I want Kolton to feel familiar. “Yeah, I am. The first curse I learned was feckin’ arse, and I’d kind of like to use it now.”
He smiles to himself, as though we’re friends who would sit and talk and laugh about our shared upbringing. Ruffled, I cram my helmet on, get geared up, and try to stomp out of the lodge all look out, buddy, but with the boots and Martian head, it’s a fail.
Skis on and goggles down, we race to the lift. He arrives first, making like he’s been waiting forever with a dramatic yawn. I roll my eyes and push past him. The lift line is empty, so it’s just him and me on the four-person chair.
“Mind not doing that?” he says partway up as I swing my skis.
The chair sways in response, and I rock my legs harder. “This?”
His olive skin grays. “Yeah. That.” He leans his elbows on the safety bar and closes his eyes.
If he pukes, I’ll likely toss my cookies, too. When my brother got food poisoning from China House’s all-you-can-eat buffet, it wasn’t pretty. I hadn’t eaten a thing there, but the second he threw up, I proceeded to reenact that pie eating scene from Stand by Me: projectile vomit, solid stream, fire hydrant force.
I still my skis and stop bouncing.
We pass one supporting tower, then another, before he opens his eyes.
“You regretting that lunch?” I ask, smirking.
He flexes his hands, and the poles dangling from his wrists knock around. “No. I’m regretting getting on this chair with you.”
Such a charmer.
