In the weeks following Aidan’s betrayal, Emma has tried her best to move on. Ignoring his countless texts, voice mails, and flowers, she isn’t sure she wants to be won back by him. But Aidan isn’t going down without a fight—especially not until Emma lets him reveal the secret of his past that caused him to be so commitment phobic.

“I want to be with you, Em. I want to be with you every fucking moment of every fucking day.”

Ohhhh how I love an epic grovel!!

With the start of this book, we are thankfully thrown right back into the OMGOMGOMGOMGGGGG freak out issue we were left off with at the end of book #1, The Proposition. I am SO glad the book didn’t skip forward or anything and allowed us to just jump back in and see the rest of the story unfold.

Total confusion.

I loved Aiden in The Proposition...he was an unapologetic idiot, lusting and rutting with abandon and slowly coming to terms with his odd fascination with Emma. In The Proposal, I think he grew a vagina. Or just lost his manhood...or gave it to Emma, or something. I don't know.

Where to start, where to start? First of all, I really liked The Proposition. I thought it was a cute idea. It was di

Finally Aidan and Emma earn their happily-ever-after....but not before some major angst and knee-rash grovelling!

Aidan has betrayed Emma. She wants nothing more to do with him as a partner, even though she is pregnant with his child. Aidan knows he has messed up royally and begs her forgiveness and does all in his power to win her back.

When Emma is raced to hospital she meets Dr Pesh Nadeen. With her and Aidan no longer a couple, she's not immune to the handsome, caring ER doctor. But Aidan is

So after consideration I have decided to redo my review for The Proposal. My previous review was just not up to my usual standard!
(Let's all just be honest here....... my ass got lazy!)

Let me first start by saying that after reading The Proposition, lets just say I was a tad bit upset. **cough**




And even after what Aidan did and shattered my heart, I still loved the man and could not wait for more!

Soooo like any normal person would do, I started stalking Miss Ashley on FB and ate up

After a quite frankly jaw-dropping preface, The Proposal picks up pretty much where The Proposition left off. Aidan has done wrong and betrayed Emma and she cannot forgive him. Aidan is a broken man – he’s activated full-blown emo-mode and he’s lost all his sparkle. Gone is the cocky, colourful, arrogant but lovable guy we first met back at the beginning of The Proposition to be replaced by a man quite literally on his knees begging the woman he loves for forgiveness and just not getting it!

*i received an ARC from Katie to read and review*

So when I finished The Proposition I hated Aidan, I mean I really HATED him, like wanted to tie him up by his testicles and use him as a pinata hated him. I didn't think he'd ever be able to redeem himself in my eyes for how he hurt Emma. But guess what? I WAS WRONG!
yea I was that shocked! Because hooooolyyyyyy did he redeemed himself!!! Half way thru the book I was actually starting to get mad at myself the more I started to like him; in fact

Because I love you! Did you hear that? I love you, Emma Harrison! I love you with everything in me. If I was honest with myself, I’ve probably loved you since that first night at O’Malley’s. I just couldn’t say it until now.

Maybe it's just me because there seem to be a lot of readers who really enjoyed this, but it was a big disappointment for me. When I read The Proposition, I loved Aidan and for the most part liked Emma (though her pushiness got on my nerves at times), and after that terrible cliffhanger I was really anxious to get to this sequel. But to me, this series that started out sexy and a little sweet suddenly got preachy, philosophical, and completely off-kilter.

“I’m on my knees – totally and completely begging you to forgive me.”

In one of the most anticipated sequels of the year, the story resumes immediately after Emma caught Aidan with another woman. Although the act was never fully consummated, the trust between them is now broken, making Emma doubt Aidan’s feelings and commitment to her and their unborn child. She is heartbroken, devastated by his betrayal and confused about her lingering feelings towards a man that took her dream of bu

The preface leaves you utterly shocked/freaked/dazed/wtf.ed!
+1 for the amazing start!! :)

The TWO things about this book which was constantly bugging the crap out of me were..

- That I couldn't picture Pesh!! In my head he was a hot Indian guy. But the author barely gave us any description about him so I was pretty bummed about that. If someone has an imagination of how he looks, Please post a picture so it can fill in the face gap for me.

This book was the sequel to The Proposition and because it ended with a heartbreaking cliffhanger of course I had to read it right away. Did I tell you that Aidan had his asshole moments?? Well he did it; he did the most asshole thing to do and cheated just so he could deny those feelings his having for Emma. Ugh!

In this we learned a secret from his past and this is were Aidan tried to fix what he'd broken; Emma's trust, her heart. He fucked up pretty badly and I think I’m enjoying him being

The Proposal is the highly anticipated sequel to The Proposition and is NOT a stand-alone. You must read The Proposition first before you even read this review or you will read spoilers from the first book.

After the shocking ending of the first book, I was anxiously awaiting to see what happens with Aidan and Emma. I was extremely mad

Pre-reading: Aidan you better make things right in this one or someone won't see the next dawn...

After reading the book: Aidan you are lucky and I won't kill you. Seriously I wasn't expecting all the things he did to get Emma back. He showed her how sweet and caring he is and that he is going to be there for her. Somehow I couldn't be mad at Aidan for cheating, which is not something I do usually, and I was hoping he was going to get her back with some grand gesture. But the grand gestures are n

I absolutely adored the Proposition but this was one was sappy line after sappy line. By 70% I was completely bored and ready for Em to have her baby. I soo missed my alpha male Aiden. His manhood was apparently left in The Proposition and Em's

Just completely disappointing. Why is Aiden winking at Emma when she's still mad at him? And pesh is a terrible plot device. The medical stuf was completely wrong, from how the terbutaline was administered to the post partum care of the baby.

This was so eagerly awaited. If I had to read "her heart stopped beating then it started again" one more time, I might puke.

One of my most anticipated books of 2013 and thank the fuck it came out this month instead of March. Emma really disappointed me. I'll tell you more about that in my full review. I must say that Aidan really impressed me and it didn't take me very long to forgive him for what he did at the end of The Proposition. I just wished Emma would have clearly seen all of Aidan's efforts.

For fans of The Proposition, you'll definitely want to read The Proposal. Aidan will most definitely have you swooning

“I want you to think about this for a minute. What would you rather have? Words that can be spoken lightly and then taken back so easily, or would you rather have actions?”

The Proposal starts off right where The Proposition left off... the first half of the book had me all over the place, it was angsty- had me upset, happy, sad, nervous, then the second half- ahhhh sweet relief! Sexy and romantic! Overall, loved the whole book!!!

He’s a screw up – yep Aidan did a bad, bad thing. Now he’s got to grovel and beg and plead to make things right with Emma. And Emma isn’t going to make it easy for him! She’s even going to consider casting him aside forever in favor of another man. Whoa! Don’t think for one minute that Aidan is going to let that happen – at least not without giving everything he’s got in him to turn the tables around. The character of Pesh was probably my least favorite aspect about this story. I just didn’t fin ...more
