Quinn is determined to not to be scared off by Wilder, not once she’s experienced the heat of his passions.

His mouth covered hers. There wasn’t a warning. The rest of her babble hummed into his mouth, turning into a soft sigh. Oh, thank the lord, he felt it too then, this inexplicable connection between them.“I should push you away, but can’t seem to get close enough.” He had her up against the wall, bracing his weight against either side of her head and she grabbed two handfuls of sweater and the thick wool felt as thick, masculine, and sexy as she hoped. As for the muscles beneath it … oh …Oh yeah.He slid his tongue against hers again with a husky moan. “This is a bad idea.” “Stopping would be a worse one.” She broke the kiss to fasten her lips to the side of his powerful neck between thick cords of tendon, his stubble rough on her lips.

Author Info

Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.

A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn't mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.


I have to give a shout out to Avon Books. They are so good at picking wonderful authors to publish. Most of the time when I read a book published by them I'm happy. 

We are now on book three of the Brightwater series and I loved Best Worst Mistake as much as I loved the first two books in the series. It's well-written with the characters we fell in love with from the first two books, plus some new ones.

We've been hearing about the Oldest Kane brother Wilder, from book one but he seemed to be the man who was smoke. Ha! I wondered what she was going to do to get him to come home.

Oh boy, wait to you read the how and why!

Ripped my heart out!!!

It was heart breaking and scary. I hate saying it's worth reading because that makes me sound somewhat morbid, (the part about why he came home) but it is. Riley wrote it so well.

After what happened to him I didn't think he'd be able to find anyone to break through that hard skull! Once again Riley found the perfect woman for her Kane brothers.

I love Quinn! Out of all the Heroines to date she is my favorite and that's saying a lot since I like all of them so far. She always has a good outlook, even when things are going bad. You have to respect someone like that.

I really love Wilder & Quinn. These two deserve happiness. Right from the beginning you cheer them on. The Brightwater is a wonderful series and in you haven't yet started it you really should. You'll really enjoy them. And let's keep our fingers crossed that there will be a Kane cousin story soon! (hint...hint)

If you have read any of this series, or any other book by Lia Riley I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!
