Series: Bristol Island Tales
Author: Elizabeth Finn
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Hosted By: DRC Promotions
Cohen is a man apart on Bristol Island—an outcast loved by all but separated by his position within the community. Dylan is the newest resident in town, but she arrives with a dark secret and a desire to keep it buried.
But when burning attraction is thrown into the mix, his job and her secrets are quickly forgotten—that is until one impetuous decision renders a relationship off-limits, unethical, and utterly inappropriate.
Living next door to one another on the island’s isolated peninsula guarantees their paths will cross time and time again. With fate tempting Cohen to ignore his conscience and, for the first time in his life, gamble with the rules, will he risk everything for Dylan?
And what happens when Dylan’s past suddenly catches up to her? Will she find the strength to bare her soul to him? Or will she let her secrets take them both down?
Sometimes the inappropriate relationship is the most appropriate of them all.
★★★ 3 Stars ★★★
“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.
Dylan is a romance writer who is seeking solace and a quiet life. It’s not long before her sexy neighbour is knocking on her door and she gets the inspiration for her new male lead in the book that she just started writing.
When Dylan turns up for her doctors appointment, she is mortified to find out who will be carrying out her pap test and pelvic examination.
What follows is a forbidden relationship between the only doctor on the island and the author who has a secret skeleton in her closet that upon discovery, would not be good for the good doctors name.

I liked this story, it had a good amount of angst and a lot of steamy moments. Elizabeth Finn has always been able to write a good sex scene and she didn’t fail here. Cohen was very appealing and I was able to get a great visual of exactly what he would look like and his dirty mouth didn’t disappoint either. You could see him really struggle with what was an ethical dilemma. Dylan was a bit of a let down for me though, I found her a bit bland and I didn’t really learn much about her as a person but she had good chemistry with both Cohen and his brother Caleb.
As I said, I liked the story but it was just an OK read for me. It felt quite long with not much happening that was particularly interesting. If you like a forbidden romance and this may be for you.
This is a standalone. it contains characters from the first book in the series, The Fight for Us, but it is not necessary to have read it to understand this story.

The Fight For Us (Bristol Island Tales Book 1)
When Isaiah moves his teenage daughter Natalie to a new town, there is little doubt he’s running away from the past. But what should have been a fresh start for them ends up fraught with pain and heartache when Natalie becomes the victim of intense bullying at her new school.
When Joss is called to a meeting with the high school principal to discuss her daughter Harper’s involvement in the bullying of a new student, she’s shocked to say the least. Her daughter can’t possibly be that child.
It’s a rocky start for Joss and Isaiah as they try to set their daughters on the right path. But there is more to Joss’s and Isaiah’s connection than just two teenage girls. Joss’s and Isaiah’s attraction to one another is undeniable, regardless of their fractious start. But his soul is broken, and as much as he’s drawn to her, he’s equally terrified of what that means.
Is Isaiah strong enough to let her get close to him?
Life sometimes forces you to make those choices whether you’re ready to or not. And when Joss’s life is turned upside down, Isaiah has to decide if he’s ready to leave his past behind and live again, or if he’s going to watch what he’s come to care so much for slip away. Isaiah’s fight is profound. Joss’s is too. And their strength to withstand it all is brutally tested.
Sometimes the willingness to fight for another is all a person has left to give. And sometimes the fight is the most important gift of all.
