The first time I met Caine West was in a bar.
He noticed me looking his way and mistakenly read my scowling as checking him out.
When he attempted to talk to me, I set him straight—telling him what I thought of his lying, cheating, egomaniacal ass.
You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend--smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention that he was married.
He deserved every bit of my tongue-lashing and more for what he'd done.
Especially when that lazy smile graced his perfect face in response to my rant.
Only it turned out, the man I'd just told off wasn't the right guy.
Oops. My mistake.
Embarrassed, I slunk out without an apology.
I was never going to see the handsome stranger again anyway, right?
That’s what I thought…until I walked into class the next morning.
Well, hello Professor West, I’m your new teaching assistant.
I’ll be working under you…figuratively speaking.
Although the literal interpretation might not be such a bad thing—working under Professor West.
This was going to be interesting…
What can I say that hasn’t already been said about Vi Keeland and her books? Hmmm…I don’t know that I can, so you might have to just put up with my repetitive adoration for this amazingly talented author. Her latest release, BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE, is about a professor and his newly appointed teaching assistant, and the ups and downs that follow with a taboo-like relationship. At least when you read the synopsis, that is what you will get from it. But let me tell you something. Caine and Rachel’s journey to happiness turns out to be SO MUCH MORE than that. From the rocky start they had, to the epic ending they arrived to, it was just PURE BLISS!
“You’re so full of yourself, you’ve already decided you’re going to break my heart. Did you ever stop to think maybe it’s me who will break your heart someday?”
BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE was EVERYTHING you could EVER expect in a Vi Keeland romance with one exception. With every new release, I believe Ms. Keeland pulls harder and harder on our heartstrings, making us FEEL more, LOVE more, and REACT more. This story hit my heart harder than her previous books and I believe it was the complexity of Caine and Rachel’s relationship from the very beginning that made the difference.
There is no EASY happily ever after here. There is no quick resolution or fast journey to the end. The author was more particular with some aspects of the story, leaving me with so many emotions to deal with. There was happiness, sadness, heartbreak, and SO MUCH FRUSTRATION throughout, but THAT is what makes this such a beautiful and dynamic romance.
There are plenty of sexy times, emotional times…there is ANGRY sex (which is my fave!) and plot twists that you will not see coming. BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE was just an all-around FANTASTIC ROMANCE! With Vi giving us something a little bit different from her usual, I’m excited to see how she surprises us next! Whether you are a hardcore Vi Keeland fan or you’ve never read her stories before, this is one book that NEEDS to be read by YOU.
