Rookie Mistakes by Beth Laycock (Lights Out)

Rookie Mistakes sets a less frenetic pace than some of the other Lights Out stories, but it was a selcome  break from the drama to meet Robert and Mitch...

From the blurb:

Can a rookie mistake lead to love?

Mitch Griffiths is an ordinary man just trying to make ends meet. He lost everything thanks to his ex: his restaurant, his partner, his home. So, when his dad gifts him a ticket to the British Grand Prix and a Silverstone Driving Experience, well, a change of scene for the weekend couldn’t hurt, could it? Even if Formula 1 is kind of boring.

Robert Andilet is a veteran F1 driver on his returning season after a six-year absence. He has a lot to learn, not least of which is how to deal with the media attention, a “rivalry” between him and his rookie teammate, as well as his attraction to a man who readily admits he thinks F1 is tedious. It was a rookie mistake to let Mitch walk away after their first meeting, will Robert make the same mistake again?

This M/M romance from Beth Laycock features a famous/ordinary man, older MCs, and is set in the high-octane world of Formula 1 featuring fast cars, spectacular crashes, heated rivalries, and of course, an HEA

Each book in the Lights Out collection is a standalone story, and the books can be read in any order.

Heather's Review: 

After several books with significant drama, it was lovely to read a low angst, sweet romance between two mature men who know what they want and are willing to work toward that goal, even if it means texting, calling and maybe a little sexting... It's straightforward and real.

Rookie Mistakes was a well paced and easy read that held my attention and fits well in the Lights Out world as a bit of fresh air in the high octane world!
