Amie's Review of Beautiful Mistake by Vi Keeland


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…

I am having one of those days- I have been reading reviews just seeing what others have to say and I don't know why I do this LOL. I get it that not everyone is going to enjoy a book BUT I don't understand what some people read for anymore - is it to change the author's words by slamming them with your opinions or is it for the attempt to enjoy and escape reality ??  I truly enjoyed this book - their first interaction made me laugh and gave way to the meaning of the title for me - I love that connection. The professor/TA bit doesn't bother me because this is college and I don't really understand the need for all these rules in colleges and business about who can date or love who. Two consenting adults should be able to live life without having to keep secrets - this is what makes most of what they do seem wrong - they are always hiding because of fear of their jobs or positions. And lastly the whole church aspect in the past - didn't bother me at all because I saw a troubled kid -who would have probably been out causing more trouble - attempting to do what he could to help a younger child. Obviously that all could have gone differently good and bad BUT again it is a story - an escape from my reality and I appreciate the connections and the emotions that came up during the flashbacks and realizations. 

Moving on...

Rachel THOUGHT she was giving her besties last disaster a piece of her mind yet all she was doing was spiking the interest of this super hot man who would soon end up being much more than a face in the hall !! I am always a fan of Vi K's work. I love the funny banter and the scenarios that build up into those OMG situations !! I always wonder what I would have done if something like this ever happened to me. Their pasts may be heavy but luckily they both grew up and have become so much more than a lot may have given their situations. Again I can appreciate all the predictable pieces of the story AND also the few twists I didn't really think could be possible. Always look forward to the standalones and hot covers that we get from Vi !!
