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… ADD TO GOODREADS

My, my Professor West! I should not be surprised when this book got into my hands. Vi Keeland always finds a way to make her characters come to life and make you love them. Vi has not disappointed with this book.
When Rachel and Caine first met, it was in a bar and she told him off. From that first meeting, you can feel the sexual tension sizzling between the two of them. Like off the charts hot. Thinking that was their one and only encounter, they are proven wrong when Rachel ends up being Caine's TA.
I loved who Rachel was from the beginning. Her personality just drew me to her. She sticks up for her friends, is very independent, does not want help from anyone and is a very strong person. She cares for those close to her but still keeps them at arms length. Her strength is what amazes me so much. Rachel keeps the past hidden so far deep, that when the past finally decides to make an appearance it could be a breaking point for her. Her story just crushes you. But yet, how she overcame her past is what made me love her.
Professor West is that one professor I wished I had while attending school. Why can't they make them all like him? He loves his job and his music. It is definitely shown when he is teaching. Caine may seem so put together, but that is definitely far from it. He does a great job with him image that's for sure. His family background is one that I would have not pegged him for. He has a past that he keeps so tight lipped. He is still suffering from the repercussions of it. Hearing Caine's past makes my heart break. He should not have that much guilt on his shoulders. But what draws me to him is how he has pushed forward and made himself as successful as he can be.
Caine has been trying to curb his attraction to Rachel. It would definitely put his career off since she is his TA and all. They try so hard to avoid it. It's even comical watching sometimes. It's like their doing a dance of some sort. But you really can't deny what is truly meant to be. And when it finally happens. Prepare yourself for Professor West.
But when that turning point arrives and the shoe drops. Oh my word! I literally gasped out loud when it happened. And I bet you will too. I did not peg it to ever go down like that but it sure did. It really did though bring this story full circle.
It really is how they make it work when both their pasts come back front and center. Can Caine and Rachel get past it? Or will the past always be in the way?
I hope you will take a chance at this book and love it too. I mean it's Vi Keeland so how can you not.
