Inappropriate is the second book in Elizabeth Finn’s Bristol Island series. I have a few books by this author under my belt. She never ceases to impress me with her all-consuming romantic tales that clench my heart with a vice-like grip.

I’ve read quite a few books by this author, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. I loved the element of forbidden romance and the way the story made me feel. As always, Finn's writing is exceptional, her characters are well developed and the story is equal parts steamy, emotional and beautiful.

Dylan Corbett is a writer of romance. She decides to move to Bristol Island for a fresh start. Fresh scenery. She wants a place she can write in peace, a little on the secluded sid

“It hurts to want something so much that you can’t have.”

When you pick a book from this author you know what to expect – angst, which it’s done very well every damn time and well written hot steamy sex scenes that I guarantee will leave you hot and bothered. Elizabeth Finn delivered here an enjoyable read, a raw, lovely romance, a story that will make you feel. “Inappropriate” is the second installment in “Bristol Island” series and it can be read as a standalone.

I know I'm going to get two things when I read an Elizabeth Finn book....


Oh....and how could I forget? An asshole hero you just can't help but love.

I can't say this was my favorite EF read, but I did enjoy it.

I guess I just didn't really buy the whole "inappropriate"ness of their relationship.

I must be the most unethical person on the planet but I didn't see anything all that wrong with Cohen and Dylan's relationship.

It hurts to want something so much that you can't have.

Elizabeth Finn is one of those authors that I go into a book knowing I've got a journey ahead of me. Her plot lines are usually fairly true to life and full of angst. Honestly, she's the queen of angst for me. Not needless 'roll of the eyes' drama but the kind of angst that makes your heart clench because the tug of war between push and pull is all consuming.

He wanted to feel all of her- every inch. The woman he couldn't ethically fuck, he wanted to fuck six ways to Sunday without a single socially acceptable barrier between them.

There's one thing that you know for sure when you finish an Elizabeth Finn book; the woman does angst and she does it well. If you like borderline asshole heroes, vulnerable but yet strong in their own right heroines, and enough angst to leave you crying for your mama then this is definitely the author for you. L

This was a solid 4.5 stars for me! I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the half a mark was the fact that I did get very frustrated with the heroine more than once! "Inappropriate" was my first read from Elizabeth Finn, and I was not disappointed in the least. In fact, I was so pleasantly surprised. I actually found her writing to be very impressive, and at times her voice reminded me of one of my favorite authors; Nina Lane.

Dylan moves to Bristol Island and quickly gets to know her only neighbor, Cohen, who is quite yummy. Unfortunately, when she needs some birth control pills, she finds out Mr. Yummy is actually Dr. Yummy...and he has a friend Mr. Speculum that makes things really awkward.

Dylan was really interesting...I loved that she was a romance writer but of course, she has a secret and it takes a while to get to know what it is. The one thing we do know is that she hasn't been with a man for six years.

I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Finn for quite some time now.. her writing style never fails to suck me in with her hero’s that are always hot, women that are always interesting , usually a medium amount of angst –although in a few books the angst level rose to epic proportions- , and of course LOVE. Once again, Elizabeth has delivered and she did it in spades. I dare say, this may very well be my favorite book of hers to date. No lie. It was that good. It was so good, that as soon as I

Elizabeth Finn has done it again, pinning an un-put-downable story of an Inappropriate love affair between to two people clearly destined to be together despite being plagued by harmful pasts and uncertain futures.

Dylan Corbett is a romance novelist starting over on the island of Bristol after a horrible past that has cost her a lifetime of hurt and embarrassment. As well as her dignity and trust of the male species.

"And how exactly does one go about refusing to treat a patient? 'Sorry, ma'am, I can't stick a speculum up your pussy because I'd rather be fucking it'"."

This is the second Bristol Island tale, with Island native Doctor Cohen Jessup and new resident Dylan Corbett.

And OMG, I loved it!

The second book in the Bristol Island series takes us back to the isolated community of Bristol, and an all-consuming yet forbidden romance between hot, local doctor, Cohen, and new-to-town, reclusive romance novelist, Dylan.

Cohen was born and raised on Bristol Island but left to pursue a medical career. He is now back as the only doctor in town and he lives a lonely life because of it – unable to become too involved with people in the

I almost DNF'd at about 29%. I reread my friend Jen's review-- Then, I went back and read again to 41% or so. It was starting to get hot & heavy. There's a sweet meet cute. and awkward attractions (inappropriate?) No, I don't think so, but the small town folks might think otherwise.
There's a huge secret that Dylan is keeping. How it's discovered makes the situation worse.
I think that the personalities could have been more developed.

“Our past only has the power we give it, and I think you’re giving yours too much.”

We really enjoyed the first book in this series so excitedly jumped feet first into the waters of Bristol Island once again. This time to join Cohen and Dylan the single sexy neighbours; one a hot yummy Doctor – the other a slightly reclusive and mysterious Author. We should mention that although this is a series these books can be read as standalones.

True to her style, Elizabeth Finn's Inappropriate pulls out all the emotions needed for an angsty and thought-provoking book, although nowhere near as angsty as Unforgiven. I know I keep coming back to that book when I review one of EF's other ones, but hey, I have yet to read a more angst-filled story than Unforgiven.

After a disastrous mistake that saw her life ruined six years ago, Dylan Corbett settles on Bristol Island; low population, remote, quiet. She's an author of erotic rom

I have read the majority of Elizabeth Finn’s books and I can easily say that this is her best one yet.

She always pens a perfectly balanced book full of angst, emotion and romance. As soon as I started reading Inappropriate I was hooked and I was pulled into the tiny pl

4 Steamy Stars! Okay, so Elizabeth Finn has me hooked with this series. I loved the plot, the characters and the steam. This was quite erotic just like the first book. The chemistry between the two MC's was palpable.The hero was sweet most of the time. He had a few moments of being a jerk, not to say that I didn't understand his anger but still. The heroine was likable. I think my only issue is how long it took her to confide in Cohen. Although her big reveal was quite HUGE so I guess I can't bl ...more
