I’ve been looking forward to reading Lizzie since my virtual book club, Literary Devices read and loved A Brush With Love and chatted with Mazey back in March. Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake did not disappoint! I was utterly addicted to the story, and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. It was such a delightful read! I’m so happy to share this review for Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake today.
Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake Review
Lizzie (like all of us!) has a lot of baggage… and omg the cover is clicking for me so much more now… She’s been fired from her job, she’s struggling to manage parts of her ADHD, and just looking to find someone to help unleash some… energy with.
Rake steps in when Lizzie gets stood up, and they hit it off… v quickly… Fast forward a few more hookups, a missed period, and a 36-hour panic flight from Australia—>Philly, and Lizzie and Rake decide to figure out how to move forward together. Well not together, together (yet!)…
Despite the heavier content, this is just a fun story. Lizzie keeps us laughing out loud and just cheering so hard for her throughout her journey to motherhood. She and Rake learn how to set boundaries not only with each other, but with everyone in their lives. I enjoy Mazey’s writing so much. It feels like she pours her heart and soul into her stories.
Neurodivergent Character Love
All the stars for Mazey for writing inclusive, neurodivergent characters, and sharing their messy, beautiful brains with us! The world needs these stories, and it’s just more writing motivation for me on the journey with my own ND heroine.

Lizzie Blake’s Best Mistake Book Synopsis
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.
