Inappropriate by Vi Keeland
I was in the mood for a straightforward romance with a little bit of angst. This book seemed to tick all of the boxes. I liked this book but unfortunately, I did not love it.
Terminated for inappropriate behaviour.
I couldn’t believe the letter in my hands.
Nine years. Nine damn years I’d worked my butt off for one of the largest companies in America, and I was fired with a form letter when I returned home from a week in Aruba.
All because of a video taken when I was on vacation with my friends—a private video made on my private time. Or so I thought…
Pissed off, I cracked open a bottle of wine and wrote my own letter to the gazillionaire CEO telling him what I thought of his company and its practices.
I didn’t think he’d actually respond.
I certainly never thought I’d suddenly become pen pals with the rich jerk.
Eventually, he realised I’d been wronged and made sure I got my job back.
Only…it wasn’t the only thing Grant Lexington wanted to do for me.
But there was no way I was getting involved with my boss’s boss’s boss. Even if he was ridiculously gorgeous, confident, and charming.
It would be completely wrong, inappropriate even.
Sort of like the video that got me into trouble to begin with.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
But sometimes it’s twice as fun.
3 / 5
I wanted an easy read which was going to wash over me and not require a create deal of thinking on my part. I craved escapism but I also got teleported into a world which seems to be ever increasingly repetitive.
I didn't dislike this book. I liked how easy the book was to read and the main character Ireland was fun and drew me in but it wasn't anything I haven't read before. I've recently read other reviews of this book and many say there were twists and turns they were not expecting and some cried! In that respect, I feel like I was reading a totally different book. The story line was predictable. I have read so many other stories with almost identical story lines.
Having said the above, I did like the book. It filled in a few hours of the day and it was a nice, easy read. The chemistry between Ireland and Grant was off the charts. I preferred their interaction via email rather than when they actually met. There was so much banter between them during the early days. The story started off amusing but then turned into another book where the heroine falls for her billionaire boss. I'm not knocking the story line because at the end of the day I knew what I was going to get before I started reading. If I hadn't read so many other books with a similar story line then I no doubt would have ended up rating this story higher.
In short, it's an enjoyable read, straightforward and to the point.
