From USA
bestselling author J.L. Berg comes an enemies to lovers stand-alone
I was
waiting for my life to start…
forgoing college to help run the family business, I’d given up on the idea of a
different life, and finally made peace with something a bit simpler.
That is,
until Leilani Hart showed up.
There is
nothing simple about about the hotel heiress and the minute our eyes meet, I
know my carefree existence is a thing of the past. She has big ideas for our
sleepy town and the motel she plans on transforming into a spa destination for
the rich and famous.
She’ll have
to go through me first.

From our
first meeting, we’re like fire and ice and I can’t help but wonder what it
would be like to pin her down and melt some of those frigid layers right off.

But, my town comes first. Or, at least, that’s what I keep telling myself.
Unfortunately, my heart and head don’t seem to agree and soon, I don’t know
where my loyalties lie.  I’ve never believed in love, but for her, I just
might be willing to risk it all.

Even if it
means falling… for the enemy.

Gemma’s Review


The Mistakes I’ve made is an amazingly beautiful story that takes place in a small town where everyone knows everyone. I really loved small town reads because I love reading about the closeness and friendship between the people that live in the town. The author really showcases this in this story and really, I really love the way this storyline was a lover to friends type of read. I love how the author really showed he emotions that the characters felt about their lives and between each other. I loved these characters together and found they were great together.

Lani was trying to get her father’s attention due to always feeling invisible to him. It is obvious that he puts his business ahead of her and I really felt for her when it is obvious how much this hurts her. But I love the way how she keeps going and the changed that she makes within the story. She was a really likable character that got along great with the other characters in the series.

Taylor was the hot local business owner that was scared of commitment. I really enjoyed the way that he tried not to fall for Lani and the way that he put her feelings ahead of his own. I really enjoyed the relationship he had with his brother and the way that they both annoyed each other.

The Mistakes I’ve made is the fourth book in the By The Bay series and focuses on Taylor Sutherland and the heiress Lani who comes to the series little town.

This can be read as a standalone, but I recommend to read the other books in the series so readers can enjoy all the characters of the series. This is definitely a book series you do not want to miss reading. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
