Release Day Review: Pretty Little Mistake by Micalea Smeltzer

What happens when the one person you thought you’d never see again waltzes back into your life? One scandalizing night in an emotional novel by a USA Today bestselling author.

Lennon Wells and Beckham Sullivan should have been perfect for each other. Both vulnerable, both striving to please difficult families, and both broken by the past. Going from friends to lovers seemed inevitable. So did a bad ending. They thought―they hoped―they’d never see each other again.

Years later, bad luck or fate, Lennon and Beckham find themselves working for the same magazine. The wounds are still raw, but the chemistry is there. Then they’re forced to work together on a project. Some things never change, and all it takes is one impetuous night. One mistake. And Lennon discovers she’s pregnant.

With more in common than they ever had before, Lennon and Beckham are going to be in each other’s lives for a long time now, whether they like it or not. And they’re starting to. If only they can break from the generational traumas that hold tight and take a shot at something they never expected: a second chance.

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

In Pretty Little Mistake by Micalea Smeltzer, Lennon and Beckham, two individuals with a shared past, reunite after years apart. Working together at a magazine, they find that the chemistry between them is still strong. However, a single impulsive night leads to an unexpected pregnancy, forcing them to confront their traumas and consider a second chance at love.

I had such a blast reading this book! The banter between the characters was on point and had me hooked the whole time. Beckham, the brooding bad boy, had a major chip on his shoulder. He tried to scare her off with his rude attitude, but she wasn't having any of it. Gotta admit, I'm usually not into office romances, but this one didn't bother me at all. There wasn't any unnecessary drama, and the characters grew so much throughout the story.

It took a while for Lennon and Beckham to finally admit their feelings, but when they did, it felt so natural and real. The author really took their time to build up their relationship, and I appreciated that. And let's talk about the surprise pregnancy twist! Seeing Beckham all protective and stepping up was absolutely heart-melting.

All in all, this book had it all—funny banter, character growth, and a romance that hit all the right spots. I was totally invested in Lennon and Beckham's journey, and I couldn't put the book down. Highly recommended for those who love a good dose of sass and swoon!
