I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Mazey Eddings is a neurodiverse author, dentist, and (most importantly) stage mom to her cats, Yaya and Zadie. She can most often be found reading romance novels under her weighted blanket and asking her boyfriend to bring her snacks. She’s made it her personal mission in life to destigmatize mental health issues and write love stories for every brain. With roots in Ohio and North Carolina, she now calls Philadelphia home.

Lizzie has made endless mistakes. Kitchen fires, pyramid schemes, bangs (of the hair and human variety), you name it, she’s done it… and made a mess of it too. One mistake she’s never made is letting anyone get closer to her than a single hook-up. But after losing yet another bakery job due to her uncontrolled ADHD, she breaks her cardinal rule and has a two-night-stand that changes everything.

Once burned, twice shy, Rake has given up on relationships. And feelings. And any form of intimacy for that matter. Yet something about charming, chaotic Lizzie has him lowering his guard. For two nights, that is. Then it’s back home to Australia and far away from the pesky feelings Lizzie pulls from him. But when Lizzie tells him she’s got an unexpected bun in the oven, he’ll do whatever it takes to be a part of his child’s life… except be emotionally vulnerable, obviously. He’s never going to make that mistake again.

Through a series of mishaps, totally “platonic” single bed sharing, and an underground erotic baking scheme, Lizzie and Rake learn that even the biggest mistakes can have the most beautiful consequences.

“I don’t want an out. I’ll see you in thirty-six hours.”

Lizzie is used to being seen as different. Having ADHD has provided her with a thick skin and a unique outlook. Rake is focused on his career. He wants nothing to do with romance. When a wild weekend with feisty redhead results in an unplanned pregnancy, everything changes. Little did either know, they were about to fall head first down the rabbit hole of love.

This was a sweet story. It has spice, and sweet words, and a happy ending.

I enjoyed the characters. Rake was a perfect leading man. He was the best fit for accepting Lizzie and her chaos.

I enjoyed the side characters as well. The plot flowed well, and the story was engaging. I enjoyed how well developed the storyline was and how thorough the presentation of an ADHD mind works.

The scene descriptions were incredibly well done, and you felt as though you were in the rooms things were happening in—a sweet story with an unconventional but perfectly imperfect couple.
