I’m here”- he caught her chin between his thumb and forefinger- “and you can do whatever you need to do to me, WITH me, and no one will ever give a damn. Whether we drink until we both forget our names, or I just sit here beside you, shut up, and hold your hand, or… whatever. Anyth

A sexy fast paced emotionally charged romance that sizzles!!!! In this sixth installment to the Shillings Agency, Diane Alberts throws an unexpected curve ball as she delivers a romance that has heat, passion and steam but at the same ti ...more

4 - "Sleeping with you was the best mistake I ever made." Stars!

The sixth book in Diane Alberts Shillings Agency series ticked all the right reading boxes for this reader.

His Best Mistake was a quick, entertaining and steamy read.

I enjoyed watching the relationship develop between Mark and Daisy, they captured my interest from the first meeting and held it until the end.
They had great chemistry, both were likable and relatable characters.
While I did find Mar ...more

By Chris September 30, 2016

I loved this book. I don't know why as it is a traditional one night hot hook up story, but then it becomes so much more.

The author nailed with all of the reasons they should not be together and the heat factor is a big plus. I loved the character development and the fact that the story takes on big ...more

By TJ *Book Twins Reviews* November 20, 2016

This was a pretty good read. Although it's book 6 in the series, it reads very well as a standalone.
What I liked: I particularly enjoyed the sexy opening scene. I was immediately pulled into the story by witty dialogue and great chemistry between the main characters. Which leads me to my second favo ...more

By Mette October 13, 2016

Oh wow, I have just finished His Best Mistake, and I just need to write my feelings down.

This is a book about second chance of love, and I tend to sometimes have a bit of at strained relationship with that kind of books, but this one really melted my heart and I couldn’t put it down.


Daisy is a youn ...more

By MsChris1161 July 01, 2017

I can't say enough wonderful things about the latest addition to Diane Alberts' Shillings Agency series, HIS BEST MISTAKE. I was hooked right from the beginning. I honestly felt a strong, compassionate connection to the heroine after just a few paragraphs. And then the scene where Scarlett meets Chr ...more

Thanks to Entangled Publishing via Netgalley for the free review copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

I've read quite a few of Diane Alberts/Jen McLaughlin books now, and I always find them enjoyable, but I think "His Best Mistake" is my favourite so far. Everything about this book was done just r ...more

By Susan (susayq ~) October 03, 2016

What started off as a no-name one night stand turned into SOOO much more! Daisy and Mark didn't think they'd ever see each other again, but come to find out they were the ones their friends had been trying to set up together for a while. And why haven't they gone out before? Both had valid reasons - ...more

His Best Mistake by Diane Alberts is not only a love story, it's a story about loss, tragedy, and ultimately forgiveness and overcoming the past—letting go. It’s a beautiful story that shows one can find love and happiness after losing the most important thing in one’s li ...more

4 “Pink is my favorite color” Stars

I just can’t resist a good “devoted-single-dad” story. I just can’t. It’s against my religion, ingrained in my genetic makeup… or something.

Mark works at a security firm, ex-military and widowed to a military wife, he now dedicates his life to putting his little gi ...more

By Catherine (The Sassy Bookster) October 21, 2016

HIS BEST MISTAKE is an emotionally intense and very sexy story of two veterans of the love wars who have a second chance at forever. The best part is that the raw emotions and the sizzling chemistry between the characters balanced out the drama so well that I never felt like any aspect of the story ...more

By Megan October 03, 2016

So, I haven't read this entire series. I've read a couple of them though, and liked them, and this one caught my eye. I'm a fan of Diane/Jen in general, so I figured it was worth a try. I was right!

This book started strong and didn't let go. Mark and Daisy meet at a wedding, well, actually, the nigh ...more

By Veronica of V's Reads October 03, 2016

This is the sixth book in a series, but easily enjoyed on its own.

Daisy is a gal not looking for love. Her fiance died two years ago, a week before their wedding, and she's been in a funk ever since. She meets a man at a hotel bar, and the man is big, and charming and comfortable to sit and chat wi ...more

I loved this book. I love books about single dads. It just gets to me.

Take Two commitment-phobes who meet up at a friend’s wedding. They had met before as one night stands. They are the same yet different—they are not wanting to settle down due to issues in their past. Daisy didn't want someone who had been in the military because of her childhood while Mark didn't wa ...more

By Amy October 03, 2016

Sometimes the biggest mistakes can turn out to be the very best ones. And this book proves that statement to be just right! His Biggest Mistake is the sixth installment of The Shillings Agency, but it can totally be read as a stand-alone.

His Biggest Mistake is a quick and sexy read. It is fast paced ...more

By Isha September 30, 2016

I'm in love with love and authors like Diane Alberts are the reason why. The romance genre gets a bad rep. Not believable or serious enough. Too much sex, not enough story. Totally untrue and explicitly unfair. Romance authors tackle serious issues like rape, kidnapping, emotional and physical abuse ...more

Loved this one! Mark was never suppose to see her again after that one night of nameless passion. But when is red haired beauty turns out to be the woman his friends at the agency have been trying to fix him up with, things get real interesting real fast. Mark has loved and lost once already and he ...more

3.75 I enjoyed this quick steamy read. I liked how the hero chased the heroine. Also, it's the heroine who has the dangerous job. I would have rated it a solid four stars, but although I understood Mark's hesitancy of dating a someone with a dangerous job, I thought Daisy's reason for not dating mil ...more
