This book is so much more than forbidden love. Though it is unethical for him to go out with a patient, he can’t help but be attracted to her. But she has so many secrets as well. Her past is a tough one for her to deal with and now it seems they will have to face all of this at once.
This book is a rollercoaster of emotions. A big part of me said screw everyone if they can’t handle this, but at the same time I wanted to embrace and keep the characters safe. I wanted them together, but I knew what they both had to get through in order for that to happen. This book just did not let up from the very first page, the struggles and the need battled it out throughout the entire book.
Though I can’t say that I didn’t like it. I was definitely glued to my seat reading it. I couldn’t put it down. I cooked dinner, went to the restroom, walked around all while reading this book. It was too good to stop and it was gripping enough, I couldn’t find a place to do that.
Now, one downside to this book for me is that it is kind of a long book, so right when you know you should take a break that old “one more chapter” catches you and the next thing you know it is three in the morning and you are finished with the book.
So aside from ignoring my family, my home and my life, I loved every moment of this book. It was agonizing and heartbreaking and it was full of steam and want. It was the perfect combination and I cannot wait for more from this island!
Cohen Jessup is curious about his new neighbor, and after two chance encounters with her, he is decided to ask her out on a date. But unfortunately, he doesn't get the chance to, and the next time he sees Dylan, it's in his doctor's office, where her feet are propped up on stirrups waiting for a pelvic exam (and never expecting her next door neighbor would be the one to perform it). But being the good doctor that Cohen is, noticing a pelvic exam that's long overdue and the next accessible doctor being an hours' drive away and a seven weeks waitlist, he accept to do the exam, even despite his attraction to her.
Guilt over his actions consumes him, an it becomes increasingly difficult for him to be around Dylan given his feelings for her. But it's obvious to everyone that he is not the only one struggling!
What I loved about this book:
The inappropriate plot!
Great characters and character development
Just as fun as it was steamy!
What I felt needed improvement:
The writing was a tad messy
First and foremost, I am a sucker for inappropriate relationship. Give me the office romance, give me the student-teacher romance, I'll inhale it all. And we'll, when I found out Inappropriate would be just that, being about doctor-patient romance (which was completely new to me), I knew I had to give it a go.
Inappropriate was a fun romantic read that was totally enjoyable. As it have already established, the plot was great, and it didn't just stick to the inappropriateness of a doctor/patient affair, but also involved deeper consequences, such a the one of becoming involved with someone in a small town and - to make things extra difficult - having to deal with a scandalous past.
So plot wise, I was definitely good. Now where the characters were concerned, I definitely liked Dylan: she is simple, thoughtful and rational. She hasn't been with anyone in nearly 6 years and believes no man is as good as the men she writes about in her novels. So when she crosses paths with Cohen, she has difficulties coping with both her attraction and feelings towards him. And especially given their doctor/patient relationship, she knows very well that it is impossible for her to act on her feelings.
Now Cohen is another story altogether! He's a sexy hunk of a doctor, but sometimes he tends to act like an utter prick around Dylan. Of course, he is just attracted to her as she is to him, but instead of keeping his calm, he roughly pushes Dylan away and goes as far as hurting her verbally. Just because he can't control himself around her! There were times when I really wanted to slap him. But then, with the help of his (awesome) brother Caleb and the help of his friends Joss and Isaiah, he manages to work on his issues and therefore worms himself back into my perfect book boyfriend list.
[spoiler]Actually, Cohen is dead set on ignoring his feelings for Dylan in the first part of the book, being borderline rude. But then, once he is able to wrap his head around the fact that he should tae a risk, he come on extremely strong; like you wouldn't believe! [/spoiler]
In my mind, the writing was a bit messy: it was a third person POV alternating between Cohen and Dylan, but the moment the POV was handed over to the other main character was often blurry (it jumped around quite often) and that sometimes made the story difficult to read. I also found quite a few editing mistakes and grammatical errors, but nothing that would make the book unreadable.
But four things entirely made up for the slightly messy writing: 1) the really great storyline 2) the great side-characters (can't wait to hear more about Caleb, and maybe even read book #1 just to hear about Joss and Isaiah's story) 3) the humour (oh yeah, some parts in this book were hilarious and last but not least 4) the many hyper sexy steamy scenes.
Oh my, this book was great, but the sexy-times and dirty talk made it live even more. I've rarely read book with so many scenes that were so explicit yet totally tasteful and enticing. Some books just have an overkill amount of steam in them, and this one did have a lot too, but it was nowhere near annoying - au contraire, ma chere! Be warned that the scenes are just quite graphic and no holds barred, but I don't think this is a bad thing (and I enjoyed it quite a lot!)
So yeah, all in all this book was great, really enjoyable. Think a mix of A Reclusive Heart by R.L. Mathewson and The Best Medicine by Tracy Brogan, so totally worth your time. Oh, and be prepared to get worked up real fine with this one!
Elizabeth Finn did an amazing job portraying the characters that was so easy to love. They were beautiful characters both Dylan, Cohen and Caleb. Excellent writing style and Elizabeth is very good at making us feel how the characters feel and what they go through.
The main character Cohen is amazingly sexy and the over is beautiful. I cant complement Elizabeth enough regarding that.
This is a great book that plays on many emotions. You need to read it just for the wow factor of a very hot male character and a beautiful heroine.
Elizabeth does a wonderful job of writing about the delicate subject raised in the book and how it affected not just Dylan but many women.
You will root for Dylan as you watch her become a strong women that take control over her life back.
The story proves that a person can overcome tragedy, find true love, and how important it is to have family & friends for support.
You will not regret reading this book!
