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…

Y’all!!! Vi does this every time, she makes me fall for the characters and want more than is offered from the story told. For me there was plenty of swooning, panty melting, laugh out loud moments. I love that Vi always makes strong female characters, and males that are willing to bend for the woman they fall hard for.
Caine West, holy shit ladies!! This dude is hot, slightly cocky, seems to be on the straight and narrow (until you find out what his past used to be), he WILL make you swoon.
Rachel, always running late, in a hurry, hard worker, and horny as hell.
The way these two meet had me laughing out loud, and then the finding out that Caine is her TA is just hilarious. To say they got started off on the wrong foot in a understatement. They work past their first meeting and soon form a fast sexual tension filled student/teacher relationship.
Who will break first? Who can’t fight the innuendos, looks, and tension between them any longer? Oh, you so want to read to find out!! 😉
It’s no shocker that I LOVED Beautiful Mistake. I loved the banter, sexy times, the characters in general, and the storyline between them, and the BIG shocker/twist in the story that I didn’t see coming! I whole heartedly recommend this book, it’s a fabulous summer read!

Ok so I want to start by saying that this book has a pretty big twist in it, which makes writing this review on the hard side. There is so much I want you to know but letting one, teeny, tiny little piece of info out will give too much away. I’m just going to give you the basics which will be similar to the blurb, not because I don’t want to blurt everything out….but it’s definitely a must read and I want you to have the same experience I did.
So, the book started out a little slow for me and was on a slow incline but I kept going. Rachel is in a bar and her drunk BFF points out a guy who recently screwed her over. During a conversation with said jerk, Rachel rips into the guy giving him a piece of her mind! She gives him a tongue lashing accusing him of being a two timer who is married with kids, etc, etc. He doesn’t seem offended but rather amused by her tantrum. She does however realize later that the hot guy she just told off…..not the guy who two timed her friend…Case of mistaken identity or rather a drunk friend pointing in the general vicinity of a bunch of guys LOL.
Fast forward to the next day where is to start her first day as a TA at her college and is running late. One of the very few things she has heard about this professor is that he hates tardiness….she is aware this is not the best way to start this day off. Yes, you guessed it…hot, married, cheating guy from last night is her professor Caine West. It is comical to see these two struggling to get through the next few conversations. At this point I honestly thought ok, so this is gonna be another story of teacher/student (or TA) forbidden love story. Will someone find out and blackmail them? Will the school find out and fire him? Will she lose her TA position? I figured ehhhh…..not much different from the other 100 books with this storyline. ONLY……its not. While a large portion of the book is about their professional relationship and budding personal relationship there is a huge plot twist that literally sneaks up on you and punches you in the face!!
I started to figure it out right before it was said in the book….and wow! Never saw it coming until literally right before the characters realize it. It was startling to say the least and quickly changed my opinion of this book. I had only wished that the twist had come out earlier….it was so close to the end of the slow moving book that I wanted more. The chapters of the characters realization and seeing how it played out came too close to the end and I wished it could have been longer!!! BUT…..all the same, I was riveted and anxious to see how it all plays out! It is heartwarming and endearing!
There are plenty of sexy hot sex scenes to keep you turning the pages until you start to see where the storyline can be going and once you realize it the pages will fly by. I loved the slow build up of their connection and their witty banter back and forth. As far as the twist and the end….holy amazeballs!!! Loved that part of it!! Definately a must read!
