Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland

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…

Vi Keeland is a one click author for me and books like Beautiful Mistake show why that's the case. I practically devoured this book. I tried to slow down with it but I was hooked from the first paragraph and never looked back. I laughed, I swooned, and I cried. This book was simply incredible.

Rachel, our heroine, is so sharp and sassy that you can't help but love her. I facepalmed on her behalf in the very first chapter but I love how she handled herself. I felt a connection to her-one I didn't figure out until the day after I'd read the book-and then I was even more in love with this character. I loved her wit, her humor and her heart.

Where can I find a Caine West? From the moment we met him I was head over heels for him. He was sexy, smooth and smart. So, so smart. Was he secretive? Yep, and I wanted to know all of his secrets. I loved how he developed through this story and he absolutely had me in tears-twice.

There's an undeniable connection between these two characters. I loved the push-pull between them; it was a necessary evil given their positions, but oh the sexual tension just oozed off the pages. But it was more than sex, too. There was a mutual respect and admiration, a level of which you don't often see in romance novels. Do characters like each other? Yes. But what these two went through to be together was so much more. It was incredible.

The writing here was flawless. I loved how there were flashbacks, I loved the dual POV. Getting inside these characters and feeling the way they felt? Perfection.

I don't often cry when I read but this book touched me and had me in tears more than once. The characters, the situations everything was so well written that I was swept away into the story and didn't want to come back out. I absolutely loved this story and would highly recommend it.
