Publisher's Summary

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.

Loved it

Performed and written very well. Captivating story with a nice balance of different types of scenes. Interesting and novel, with deep undertones. Great book.

A beautiful story and beautiful dual narration

What did you like best about this story?

I loved this mixture of alpha/cockiness of Caine and the independence of Rachel. This story was a little different than some other books that Rachel wasn't a complete "weak" lead feminine lead character. A lot of books have a weaker lead with an alpha male lead and I love it when there is a stronger female lead that can stand up for herself at times. Yes an alpha male can be sexy but it's also sexy for a female to stand up for herself and be a fighter and have a brain too.

Have you listened to any of Sebastian York and Andi Arndt ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have listened to several stories by these two narrators - both together and separate and this one ranks up there with other stories they have done. These two narrators both put great emotions into their narration and this performance was no exception. They both did a great job at making you feel a part of this story and feeling invested in it. <br/><br/>I wish there would have been more Sebastian York parts in this book as I wanted to know more about what Caine West was thinking at times in the book.

Any additional comments?

Vi Keeland knows how to suck a reader in with her style of writing. She knows how to deliver an emotional, heartbreaking, beautiful, sexy book all in one easy package. Her characters are lovable and easy to relate to, even when you are mad at them you still want to love them and feel for them. I easily find myself invested in her stories and not wanting to put it down within minutes of picking it up.

Tears and heart warming LOVE

A really great listen! Packed with emotion and love that you can feel deep down in your belly. It doesn't hurt that the best narrators ever killed it as usual.

Beautifully written and performed

This listen was one I enjoyed beyond measure and largely due to the performance of York &amp; Arndt, both of whom, in my opinion are among the best performers in this business.

The story is dual perspective of H/h .... and even though they got off to a rocky start their chemistry is undeniable.

I am not a book critic, but this is one romance that leaves you feeling happy after listening. Despite the tough topics that are broached in this story, it has a happily ever after that is satisfying. I would like to think there are more men in the world just like Professor West.

Beautiful story

What I enjoyed the most was the fact that they knew each other for more than an hour before jumping in bed. They sensed each other but it grew into more than either could explain, until pretty much the end. Very well done all around.

Perfect narration, wonderful twist

At the beginning, I really wasn't that fond of the flashbacks. I didn't feel like I needed to know quite so much about Kane's past in that way and that maybe I would have enjoyed it more as just one part. However, it all fit together perfectly. Once you realize where things are going, it's a little predictable. But that doesn't make it any less great. Hot sex, perfect narration (of course-- its Andi Arndt and Sebastian York... they are always perfect!), and a sweet story.

CAINE AND RACHEL!! MAY BE MY FAVE VI BOOK SO FAR!

If you could sum up Beautiful Mistake in three words, what would they be?

Wonderful, Destined, Great!

What did you like best about this story?

How Rachel and Caine were destined...they were brought together and were meant to be...it was great!

What does Sebastian York and Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They are always a good team!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

How they told their individual sides of the story....How they both felt responsible...and how Rachel's friends really loved her!!

Any additional comments?

This is my fave Vi Keeland book so far...she writes a great story...and this one will not disappoint you!! The love story is really sweet..and there is some great sexy time too...Caine is just the right amount of alpha yummy and Rachel is just the right amount of sassy,,,and their meet cute really is hilarious and cute!! I recommend...couldn't put it down!!!

A BEAUTIFUL SYMPHONY OF EVERYTHING I LOVE

Seeing the release of one of my favourite author's books had me about to click the add to cart button without needing to read the book's summary because I'm that confident in her work.. but something caught my eye which made me hesitate because a teacher/student NA story is not my preferred romance genre. Then I saw just who was narrating it and my fears were instantly quashed because it was And and Sebastian so I knew it'd be great. But I was so so wrong - it wasn't just great.. it was spectacular and, true to a Vi Keeland story, it was also riveting unstoppable magic. Because she doesn't just write about 25 yr old feisty TA Rachel meeting and falling in love with 32 yr old hottie Professor Caine.. oh no nothing so simple for this impressive talented author - she lets the story build, grow, flourish, flounder.. and then.. yes.. and then she knocks your socks off.

So, when you download this beautiful blissful story (and I hope you do), get ready to be swept off your feet by a story that starts off sweet.. but many secrets lurk beneath. It's a delicious story that has hot sex scenes but the plot's not drowned by them. It's a rollercoaster story that has gut-wrenching lows as well as giddy highs. It's a touching tender story that is filled with emotional angst as Rachel slowly falls in love with Caine. And it's a heartbreaking story as he takes you on a journey through time to his misplaced guilt-ridden past. It's also a shocking story when he uncovers the twisted truth.. as well as a happy one when he inevitably falls hard too. There's also raw all-consuming passion and forgiveness as fate, Destiny.. or the Lord above finally lead these two very deserving characters to their neatly tied HEA's found in each other's arms.

Worth a credit? Without a doubt YES - in fact IMO it'd be worth two. Vi Keeland uses a humorous start as her stepping stone before plunging you into a toe-curling swoon-worthy moving romance that doesn't disappoint. With its easy banter, its perfect yet flawed characters, its clever clever twist and its deep emotional angst that pulls at your heartstrings. My only murmured mumbled complaint is that I didn't get enough Sebastian York as I'd like because the story was told mainly from Rachel's POV.. but a little is better that none at all I begrudgingly suppose. And girls get ready for Professor Caine West.. he's a sexy alpha with a filthy mouth and a heart of pure gold.

The storyline was oh so familiar

Not sure why a lot of the recent stories are based on "that book". We all know which book that is. Tired of hurt characters and men who don't want to commit and women who act like they don't want a relationship when they do in secret but they won't admit to it, scars on the body from abuse, a best friend she borrows cloths from, a guy who is set up pretty well, is overly protective writhing the hour of meeting the heroine, a guy friend who likes the heroine, a bar scenes where heroine drunk calls the hero and as a result he shows up to take her home and on and on and on. Oh stop me before I puke. Can't anyone be original anymore?

A perfectly quirky romance

A full five star read that had me sucked in from the very first page. It was funny, it was sad, it was happy, so many emotions throughout the story. Professor West was super sexy and a true alpha male. Rachel was strong, level headed and all woman. I loved these two. So much chemistry from the beginning that only intensified as the story progressed. Told in dual POV, this forbidden romance with an unusual storyline filled with secrets, lies and a few plot twists. A perfect quirky romance just like I'd come to expect from Vi Keeland and narrated perfectly by my favourite duet, Sebastian York and Andi Arndt. I loved it.

Brilliant

Where does Beautiful Mistake rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I can't say as I have so many favorites but it is high as it was very good

What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Mistake?

The twist towards the end

What does Sebastian York and Andi Arndt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

They are brilliant as always. You know if they are narrating that it will really come to life

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

definitely

Any additional comments?

Love Vi Keeland. I look forward to her future books as this was a brilliant read and I highly recommend

Love Vi Keeland

I thoroughly enjoy Vi Keeland's book.

I usually purchase the author's book when they have been released, I just read the summary / story and I will purchase them.

I am familiar with the narrators (Love Both Narrators) which made it an easy decision for me just purchase.

Wow.

This was an awesome read. Soul mates met once the. Parted through circumstances, only to be reunited again. The following of their path and things that happen to get them there, truly amazing. Loved Andi and Sebastian's narrative of this book.
