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.

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 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.

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.

Narrators are better than the book

I read this story a few months ago, and to be honest, it was not memorable. I don’t remember the characters names or the story itself. I do remember that it was just average. The narrators, however, I have heard several times in the past and ARE memorable. I guess I’m just looking for more in my romance stories. Kissing too many frogs to get to the Prince!

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

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 & 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.

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.

Sebastian & Andi really bring the book to life. Told in dual POVs. It has equal amounts of romance, humour & smut. Addictive listening

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.
