Love isn’t fated.
And anything revealed by a sideshow fortune teller about soulmates is also bogus.
But when the same unique name is called over the loudspeaker at a hospital years later, even a skeptic like Zara can’t fight the curiosity.
And when he turns out to be a witty, good-looking, intelligent and successful lawyer, a girl might rethink her stance.
But is he everything he claims to be? Or is he too good to be true?
Crazy attraction and an undeniable connection make for a lethal combination.
And he is either her ultimate true love or her greatest mistake.
Oh, I absolutely love T Gephart. This is the second book I’ve read by her and the perfect book to pick up when in the mood for something lighthearted and laugh-out-loud funny. My Greatest Mistake has become one of my favourite rom-coms and tells the story of soul mates, fate, and what ifs.
The hero was a joy to get to know. He’s determined, smart, and mature but still knows how to have fun. Basically, he’s the perfect match for the heroine, Zara, who is also smart, mature, ambitious and driven. She knows what she wants and isn’t letting anything get in her way to achieving it. These two characters meet under strange circumstances – but then again, fate (and the author) has a sense of humour – and I enjoyed the journey these characters went through on their way to finding love.
In addition to the main characters, I couldn’t help but love the cast of secondary characters, all of whom I hope get stories of their own. They really added extra depth and personality to the story and I’m so glad we got to see so many wonderful characters in this book.
As previously mentioned, this book is funny and had me laughing out loud often. I was hooked on Gephart’s writing and often found it a struggle to put the book down when I needed to go to work or to sleep. I just wanted to binge this book, and immediately upon finishing it, I wanted to read it again. I seriously loved it! A little while ago, the author made a comment about how during writing this, she felt her creative well was running dry. An understandable feeling! But I am so grateful Gephart was able to push through and find the inspiration for this story. It’s a brilliant work of art that deserves to be out in the world and accessible to anyone who needs a fun, pick-me-up read. I’m looking forward to re-reading My Greatest Mistake and the rest of her backlist in the future.
