Okaaaay, it's official now. I'm seriously addicted Vi Keeland's books!!! :D Story, chemisty and the humor between Caine & Rachel was soooooo good! One time I was laughing and the other minute I was swooning over Caine. :D Damn, this woman always makes me happy with her amazing male characters. :P

If you haven't read any books of hers yet, trust me you definitely should give a chance. You're missing too much!!! ;)

Ps. I really enjoyed this book too but still BOSSMAN is my all time favorite book

I understood what he meant. I’d felt a connection from the first time we met, too. I didn’t want to scare him, but whatever was between us had always felt bigger than me—bigger than us.

There's more to Beautiful Mistake than meets the eye. Although it was light-hearted and there were scenes that made me laugh, it also had an adequate amount of drama that pulled my heart into so many directions. What I loved most about this book, of course, was the substance and Vi Keeland is really famous for that.

The book begins when Rachel M
You might consider this an office romance of sorts. I would classify this as a hooking page-turner, that’s sexy, original and touching. Vi Keeland comes through with yet another appealingly clever story balanced by heartening moments full of feels.

The first time Rachel Martin saw him, assuming the man her BFF broadly pointed out had lied about his marital status, Rachel pulled no punches letting him know what she thought of his slimeball @$$ no matter how sexy his smirk was. As it turned out t

There are some authors out there that whenever they release a new story, I can’t wait to get my hands on it and I’m usually always guaranteed to love it. Vi Keeland is one of those authors for me, whether it’s one of her own or one of her collaborations, I always wait with real anticipation for the release.

Beautiful Mistake was just pure awesomeness; it was full of humor and a lot of scorching hot and steamy scenes that had me fanning myself incessantly. For anyone out there who is a Vi Keeland

Beautiful Mistake was a beautiful book with a beautiful story line. Vi Keeland has the ability to make a twist appear out of nowhere that leaves my jaw hanging open and my heart pounding out of my chest. This mistaken identity story was complex and emotional. I also laughed and swooned. And I couldn't get enough.

Is there anything better than a Vi Keeland book? NO! The answer is, no, I don't think so. I swear this author always writes stories that are packed with steamy tension, angsty goodness, and witty banter that makes them down right riveting. Beautiful Mistake was no different. It was another solid hit, brimming with romance feels, and a jaw dropping twist that left me winded. I absolutely LOVED it, and I more than recommend it.

So, what's the story about? Well, I'm going to give you the b

I have two confessions to make. First, I am Vi Keeland addict. Second, forgive me romance book world, I have sinned and fallen in love with Professor Caine West. Yes, I am torn in who is my favorite Vi Keeland hero. I just can’t pick one because Professor Caine West has sung all the right notes when it came to winning my heart. There is no mistaking about it Beautiful Mistake will have readers swooning and singing the praise of Vi Keeland.

Let's skip the summary of the plot with this one and just move on to my feels of the book, shall we? I dove into this book with only 0.1% idea of what it's about. All I knew was information from the blurb but there's so much more in here that I wasn't really prepared for. I don't want to steal the excitement from you by spoiling it,so....skipping my usual plot summary it is.

Vi Keeland is an automatic one-click for me for so many reasons. Hands down, this woman is one of those few authors who ca

Just WOW.... When I read the blurb I thought it was a professor/student story, so I prepped myself and went in with an open mind. Let me tell you that it was nothing like I had imagined, it was SO MUCH MORE and it had my emotions where all over the place!!

The intense chemistry between Caine and Rachel had me buzzing and at times I felt like I was going to explode from it!!

Professor Caine West has made mistakes like the rest of us, and we get a glimpse of one mistake that comes full circle and h

Rachel is 25. She's working as a waitress in a bar in Brooklyn. But she's also going to school to become a music therapist.
Caine is a few years older. Also, he is not Drew! Drew was the guy who lied to Rachel's bestie Ava about being single! But Rachel yelled at poor Caine at the bar. Called him names and whatnot.
The next morning she sees him again - as her new professor and boss! She's his new TA!

I did not enjoy this and I had a lot of issues with it.

I hate the teacher/student trope in contemporary books, even if the male is a 32 year old professor and the female is a 25 year old TA graduate student. I don't care, I hate it nonetheless. I picked this up regardless hoping maybe I wouldn't be bothered by it becase it's Vi Keeland and I enjoyed her previous books. I was beyond bothered.

The relationship Caine and Rachel had was unprofessional from the start. It was inappropriate and just a
What can I say that hasn't already been said about Vi Keeland and her books? Hmmm...I don't know that I can, so you might have to just put up with my repetitive adoration for this amazingly talented author. Her latest release, BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE, is about a professor and his newly appointed teaching assistant, and the ups and downs that follow with a taboo-like relationship. At least when you read the synopsis, that is what you will get from it. But let me tell you something. Caine and Rachel's j ...more

I'm pretty sure I look like a lunatic at the moment, but what the hell. I finished this book with tears in my eyes and a huge smile on my face. I think this is now my favorite Vi Keeland book that I've read to date. Beautiful Mistake was just that—BEAUTIFUL and compelling and heart wrenching and touching. All the sexiness and dirty talk delivered by Professor Tight Buns took a backseat to all of that and more.

4 stars.

This book. I had super high expectations for it since it was Vi Keeland and I love her books. As much as I wanted to love it, I couldn't but I did enjoy it. I liked Caine and Rachel's characters. Their encounters at the beginning were hilarious.

I loved the way their relationship just worked.

Somewhere during the second half is where things got interesting. Some parts I skimmed because I was bored and other parts were interesting. Hence the rating.

But overall a really good read by Vi.

Well I have to take my hat off to Vi Keeland, I got completely blind sided reading this fabulous book and I loved every moment of it. I’ve read quite a few of Vi’s books and thought I had an idea of what I was in for but I was so wrong. I went in like one of the arrogant, cocky guys she writes about and completely got schooled by this fantastic author.

This story is told in the now but there are also a sprinkling of flashback chapters that are building the background foundation of this story. Rig

Confession: I was so wrapped up in reading Beautiful Mistake that I was late to pick up my son at camp. I'd also like to confess that I went to the wrong location to pick him up.  Both my head and my heart are consumed with Caine and Rachel. I was binge reading Beautiful Mistake at 2 am and now I can’t see straight.

"True love is selfless."

WEEEE! Every time I finish one of Vi Keeland’s books I am positively giddy with happiness. The blurb for this book sets up the premise perfectly. This is a standalone TA/Professor relationship – I love the forbidden romance and all the angst that goes with it. The story starts out with a big bang -- a hilarious encounter of the hero (Caine) and heroine (Rachel) where she hands his a** to him for being a man-wh*re. His response was no more than a smirk because he knew she

As always, I am in awe of Vi Keeland and her ability to make the amazing task of writing a story that is unique and oh-so readable look so easy. Her writing was so effortless and natural. There was no stilted conversations between the characters, no awkward dialogue. The story flowed off the page with such ease and perfection that I would look up and not realize how much of the book I had read in one sitting; I had just sunk so far
