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, ego-maniacal ass.

You see, the gorgeous jerk had wined and dined my best friend - smooth talking her into his bed, all along failing to mention

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've really enjoyed this book too but BOSSMAN is still my all time favorite book

”You’re that song, I don’t know any of the words, but the tune is so damn familiar.”
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.

“We all make mistakes. Life doesn’t come with instructions. Someone who loves you will forgive you for them. But when you hide them or lie about them, they’re no longer mistakes—they’re decisions.”

Beautiful Mistake is a standalone romance novel by Vi Keeland with a dual point of view. Rachel and Canie first encounters at a bar where Rachel gives him a wrongful tongue-lashing, thinking he lied and cheated on her best friend. Lea

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.

Dear Professor Caine West,

Alright folks, Beautiful Mistake was a surprise (a 4.5 stars surprise). I expected the angst. I expected the SIZZLING HOT chemistry, and the wicked professor. I did not expect the emotions; the intensity; the heaviness that settled in my chest. The combination of a wonderfully fleshed out heroine, a tortured former rock star and their slow-burning romance kept me glued to my couch until I finished it, butt hurting and lungs gasping for air. It was lovely.

“This feels… right.”
His eyes searched mine. “It does. As much as I fought it, and it’s against every rule at work, nothing’s felt this right in a long time. Maybe I couldn’t get you out of my head because you were supposed to be there.”

HOLY SQUEEEEEE!!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVED this book!! It was HOT, SEXY, SWOOOOONY, and yet also FULL OF FEELS!! When I first started reading it, I was completely enjoying it - I felt totally wrapped up the story and was loving everything I was reading. But

BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE: A sexy new standalone romance novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’

Ohhhh I loved how this started, being the wing woman to her friend drowning her sorrows over a cheating lying bastard at the bar they work at, she’s alerted by her friend that the cheating lying bastard is there
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

"God, forget peanut butter and jelly. There is no better combination than a dirty mouth and sexy suit."

These dang authors that dream up these sexy as sin professors, good lord..... I am so in love with a professor. His name, Caine West❤️ He is cocky, he is forward, and man is he hot.

Professor West is not a relationship type guy. Oh no, he's all playboy. That is until he runs into Rachel Martin. The instant connection, the smoking chemistry, and then boom, his now student and teaching assistant.

RATING: 5 Feisty and Guardian Angel Hearts!! <3


“That’s the thing about true love—we never see the beginning or the end.” 

Beautiful Mistake is an explosively swoon-worthy romance with a sophisticatedly unpredictable plotline, making it stand on its own in the banality of the contemporary genre—a testament to Ms. Keeland’s eloquent writing.

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

I am a huge fan of Vi Keeland and I love her easy and sexy style that always guarantees me I won't regret choosing her story. Even if her last books weren't a completely hit for me, "Beautiful Mistake" was different and had another vibe that intrigued me from the beginning. It had something more fresh and sexier and brought a more complicated plot which I enjoyed.

Caine and Rachel met by mistake and in the funniest way possible. Rachel confused him of being her best friend cheating ex and just to

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 easily became one of my favorite books from Vi Keeland. I loved these characters and how well they connected to one another, especially when it came to their love of music. Caine and Rachel had the kind of chemistry that refused to let my attention go and I read this book in one sitting because of that.

The story was a little forbidden, sexy as hell, and had a lot of intrigue. This is a definitely recommend from me and a book I already know will b

That was really good! I even got emotional towards the end...

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.

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.

Sometimes you just want to read some smut and this book did the trick. The plot of Beautiful Mistake was interesting and a little different then typical contemporary romances. But when the reveal happened at the end, it felt a bit forced and I had already guessed it chapters before.
I feel like it was just done at the end to try and bring heartache and pain to the reader. It just didn't work for me this time when Caine and Rachel broke up.
Yes, of course they get back together! This is contemporar
