Terminated for inappropriate behavior.

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 realized 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.


Inappropriate is a fun and sexy romance that isn’t all just fluff. Inappropriate deals with heavy topics within the mental health conversation so trigger warnings.

Inappropriate follows Ireland as she’s fired from her job for her behavior outside of work. In retaliation, she writes a scathing email to the CEO and thus begins the story.

Ireland is a spitfire main character. She’s fun, compassionate, and always has a witty retort. Ireland is also not a virgin. I feel it’s important to point this out since I dislike the trope of inexperienced woman and hyper experienced man.

Grant toes the line of alpha male and nice guy perfectly. He’s territorial without being annoying and he’s more than a pretty face and a good lay. There are layers to Grant that I didn’t expect, but enjoyed immensely. Keeland slowly teases out his past with a few chapters set in the past. These chapters are important to understand Grant’s actions and motivations.

The chemistry between Ireland and Grant is white hot from beginning to end. Their banter will keep you on edge while also making you laugh and swoon.

I found myself thinking about Inappropriate a few days after I finished it. It’s more than just a fluff romance. It’s about forgiveness, acceptance, and change.

Overall, Inappropriate was exactly what I wanted: a swoon worthy romance with a little something extra. I will definitely be reading more Vi Keeland soon!

  1. I haven’t read this one- but it actually does sound like one contemporary romance I would read. I think the premise sounds like a lot of fun.
