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.
My Perfect Mistake is the first book in the contemporary romance Over the Top series by Kelly Siskind. I have not had the chance to read any of Kelly’s other books, but I have to say My Perfect Mistake was a very fun read. I love a good vacation hook up turned more story. While the main characters were a bit more abrasive than I am typically used to, I can see a ton of people really really loving them. I liked them too. My Perfect Mistake is told in dual narrative between Shay and Kolton.
Each one of them have their own reasons for why they are not looking for anything, but nonetheless it was hard to deny the other one when they came steamrolling into each others lives. Literally. Watching them bicker back and forth was pretty hilarious. I really liked their dynamic, even if both of them were a bit much for my tastes. A bit too mean, a bit to brash, just a bit too much. And I will be the first to admit that both of these characters are nice people, but they have a mean and tough as nails front that they put on. Not to mention that they seem to bring the worst out in the other with surprising ease. I did enjoy watching them get to know each other, I just like a bit of a softer touch when it comes to my jerkiness. There was nothing soft touch about these two. Which I think will appeal to many readers immensely. They were a lot of fun to witness when they were together. And I was certainly rooting for them throughout the story.
I think I am going to enjoy the other characters in the series stories even more than Kolton and Shays because they have a bit of a different personality. I also think it will be fun to see if we get new characters or if we are going to stay within this group of three guys and three girls. (which I would not be unhappy with at all.)
Bottom line: If you can’t get enough of brash and in your face characters, and if jerk guys and girls do it for you, My Perfect Mistake is a swoon worthy read. I really enjoyed it, it just took some getting used to Shay and Kolton. There is no denying their chemistry. Kelly Siskind has the chemistry writing thing down to an art!
