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 loved this book so much I read it in less than 12 hours!
Rachel is a graduate student and a TA. One night, she’s at a bar with her friend, who has been screwed over by a married guy, so Rachel walks up to the guy to tell him off. Turns out, she had the wrong guy. She was mortified and left without saying anything to him.
She gets to class (late) and who is the new Professor she is the TA for? That’s right, it’s the guy she told off at the bar. Turns out he is Caine West. Rachel apologizes, and Caine accepts her apology. As they continue to work together, feelings start to grow, but they both have things from their past they are trying to keep hidden.
I won’t spoil the stuff from the past, because it’s a really interesting story line. I will say it was predictable and I saw it coming from a mile away, but it was still great and made me love Caine even more.
Rachel was a tough girl who had a rough childhood, but she endured, and was now pursuing a career in music therapy. There was a side story from her thesis that involved a person she was doing therapy with – I loved this part of the story. It was incredibly original and told very well.
I can’t give a lot away, but I will recommend that you read this beautiful story. I sure loved it, and I think you will too (if you like contemporary romance, lol).
