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.
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…
Let’s cut to the chase: Vi Keeland’s Beautiful Mistake is drop-dead sexy, breathtakingly romantic, intricately layered, jaw-droppingly unpredictable, and deliciously satisfying. It stands out in the vast and overwhelming sea of contemporary romance and will, undoubtedly, be on my Best of 2017 list. If I’ve adequately piqued your curiosity, do not waste another moment before starting Beautiful Mistake. If you need a little more convincing, see my full review at All About Romance
Keeland breathes life into Caine and Rachel’s characters through insightful flashbacks and well-placed hints into both their pasts and their current psyches, and this gives them dimension and makes them relatable. Each interaction, moment, and exchange are carefully constructed pieces of a complicated puzzle that slowly creates a picture and tells a story that is mesmerizing, brilliant and unexpected. I could not put this book down waiting for each twist, turn and revelation.
While Beautiful Mistake is exactly what you might assume – a fun, sexy, entertaining, and heartfelt romance – it is also a beautiful, complex and layered story that is truly original. This book has it all, and I look forward to re-reading and taking the journey again. If I ever do find myself on a deserted island with only books as my companions, I believe I will be just fine if I am surrounded by books like this one.
