The Mistakes (Off-Limits, #3)~ by Elizabeth Brown


“So is that why you’re single? You want a Mr. Darcy?”


The Mistakes is the third book in the Off-Limits Series. Although it can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the entire series because each and every character in this series is beautifully connected with each other. In this third story in the series, Winnie finally meets her match! A must read for forbidden romance fans, Winnie Masters and Mark Bishop make a few beautiful mistakes that bring them both a lifetime of happiness!


“This guy’s green eyes were like kryptonite and the hotness was fucking with my brain.”

Winnie Masters has always lived life on the wild side. With a flair for living free, Winnie likes men. However, her best friend Ainsley convinces her that she needs to take a vow of celibacy to slow down and take stock of her life. When Mark Bishop crashes into her life, like a freight train, Winnie is swept off her feet. And despite her best efforts to stay away, sometimes the most forbidden fruit is the fruit you just can’t wait to taste. And taste. And taste!


“So what if my new job’s biggest benefit was frequent sex with my boss? I could deal with that.”

Mark Bishop is an accomplished lawyer. With a stable upbringing, a solid group of friends and a very supportive family, he seems to have it all together. When Mark meets Winnie, he knows he has to have her. A quick one night together doesn’t even begin to quench the desire that exists between them, and when his new assistant walks in the door (and it’s WINNIE), he knows his life is about to get very complicated. As Winnie and Mark navigate the choppy waters of suspicious friends, stolen steamy moments at work, and questionable choices, they quickly fall head over heals in love with one another. But can Winnie and Mark find a way to make things right after making so many mistakes?


“Just tell me what you need. Tell me what to say. You are all I ever wanted. I need you in my life, so please, just tell me what I need to do to fit into yours.”

Told in dual POV, The Mistakes is a tender forbidden romance full of charged banter, smart dialogue, and plenty of steam! Both Winne and Mark are quite complex, and together they create something beautiful. The pacing of the story is steady and each moment of the journey is full of tenderness, slight angst, and passion. I admired Winnie’s strength and quirky personality, and when Mark enters her life, she learns how to trust and truly love for the first time. Mark has always tried to follow the straight and narrow and yet, his life is hollow without love. Together, Winnie and Mark complete each other and although it takes them a while to figure things out when they find their way everything that was broken becomes something beautiful and brand new.


The Mistakes is a fun and sexy read with endearing characters experiencing unforgettable moments together. Elizabeth Brown is a fantastic storyteller whose characters magically come to life. I adored every second with Winnie and Mark, and I cannot wait to see what Ms. Brown dreams up next! If you love to laugh, swoon, and smile then don’t waste another minute, download this bad boy to your Kindle right now!
