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 pulled some many different emotions out of me with Beautiful Mistake. This is my favorite book of the year thus far.
This is a story of forever and believing in fate. We meet Caine and Rachel at a time in their lives when both of them didn't know what fate had in store. Caine was a bad boy but his heart was pure. He took care of everyone around him in a way that he thought was not good enough but in actuality it was. Fate had a way of turning what he thought was bad into something good and making it a life lesson.
Rachel was a believer in God sending you what you need when you need it and at a very young age she knew her angel was there to protect her. Her life was hard but things turned around in a way she couldn't imagine and with that my heart broke, came back together and broke again.
Beautiful Mistake is one of those books, whose title automatically pulled you in but when you read the first chapter and could not stop reading you knew this was going to be nothing but fabulous! Caine is a hero in his own right but Rachel was also a hero in her own way and had no idea.
Kudos to Vi Keeland for breaking my heart when needed but slowly putting it back together.
