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…
Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you’ll have good luck.
I’m not even going to attempt to do justice to this cleverly laid out tour de force. And I’m not going to spoil another reader’s enjoyment by divulging too much info either. Suffice to say, I loved every minute I spent between the covers of Vi Keeland’s latest smexy contemporary romance.
Holy Wow! Vi Keeland never ceases to amaze me with her stories. Her books make you fall in love with reading over and over again. This author has become one of my top favorites and I look forward to each new book she releases.
Simply music to my soul. Each word was a beautiful note on a musical scale written for a song of love that was meant to be. In a twist of fate, the past and present crisscross and the future may depend on a copper penny or two and a few Hail Marys.
Beautiful Mistake felt a bit more serious in nature than some of Keeland’s other books – but I was mesmerized by its subject matter and the two main characters. With each new chord, I was totally captured and let the rhythm take full control until the last note played.
As with this author’s other trademark leading men, Caine is another top-notch, heart-stealing hero. I’ve yet to meet one of her male protagonists that I haven’t fallen head-over-heels for – but Professor Caine West might be top of the list at this point. His “angelic” bad boy persona was a heavenly delight for me. He’s so much more than a pretty face and ripped body. Professor West is a man with many sides.
And Rachel Martin was his match. She makes her presence known – even when she’s tardy and that’s often. She’s feisty and funny, tells it like she sees it, and throws sass like a pro. (And nobody writes sassy dialogue better than VK!) Rachel’s strength has gotten her to where she is today.
Together they are DY-NA-MITE! The chemistry is searing and explosive. Sex is plentiful – and both enjoy a down and dirty romp. But the bedroom scenes (or anywhere else these two choose) plays second fiddle to the overall relationship that is powerful and moving, intimate and meaningful.
Interwoven throughout is a diverse range of secondary characters that bolsters the depth and strength of the story without overshadowing the main event.
Told from both viewpoints in first person, Caine and Rachel share their story reflecting glimpses of both past and present.
No worries about cliffhangers or continuing storyline, Beautiful Mistake is a standalone novel. Give yourself a reading treat and prepare to be WOWED!
