The Plot (from Goodreads):

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.

The Review: 

I liked this continuation of the A Brush With Love series even more than its adorable toothy precursor! Which is surprising, because I generally hate the unexpected pregnancy trope. I probably wouldn’t have picked up an unexpected pregnancy book as a standalone, but I loved Mazey’s writing in the first book and heard amazing things about this one from friends who read it before me.

Lizzie Blake was especially steamy, and filled with pining on both sides when Rafe and Lizzie find themselves living together in a studio apartment.

I found the descriptions of Lizzie’s ADHD to be incredibly readable and descriptive, and it was so easy to understand her frustration when things didn’t go the way she intended.

It was fun to see some of the characters from Book 1 again, and I’m looking forward to more in this series!
