Predictable. Boring. Safe.
That’s what life is supposed to be like. As the rightful heir to Waterfront Gardens, I would gladly refuse my inheritance. I don’t want the money. I sure don’t want to have anything to do with its dark past. Except for the letters of my deceased mother, I would be willing to cut losses and move on and give up my rich lifestyle. But my stepfather e

I waited and waited some more for Part 2....SKIP IT and wait (maybe) for BOOK 3

Only to be enormously disappointed. I loved book 1. LOVED IT. I had the impression that Book 2 would be in Chase's POV. WRONG.
SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!******
This book is just annoying. I thought I'd swallow this up in one sitting but after the second chapter, I needed a break because suddenly I developed an attitude. Basically, book 2 is "a dark look washed over his face but quickly disappeared. But I saw it." Very frustra

Dizzy and Confused

I was impatiently waiting this book's release because I loved The Interview so much.

However, I'm not too sure if it's possible to be more disappointed, unfortunately. It actually felt like a completely different book with completely different characters written by completely different authors. Yikes!


Ok, let's start with Laurie. She was incredibly annoying, naive, gullible and immature in this book.

Oh, I'm getting married...wait, he expects to live together?

4.5 Stars

The anticipation's killing me.
Please, please, please give me the last book right now.
Laurie is deciding if she wants to go through with the fake marriage to Chase. Laurie is struggling with her decision, she doesn't know much about Chase and she is finding her attraction is complicating her decision. Chase has decided he wants Laurie in every way, but will settle for an agreement that will satisfy them both.

Quickly paced, you get to learn a little bit more about both characters. Cliffhanger ending and I am anxiously waiting the finale. i thought this was highly entertaining and
Lustful Literature


This book is not to be read as a standalone, this is the continuation of Chase and Laurie’s very complexed and unique relationship. Once again JC Reed and Jackie Steele collaborating together have treated readers with a very intense and drama filled story. The story is told in Laurie’s POV but we do get a brief look into Chase’s mind in the prologue and I have to tell you I need more. This is a quick read but the writing was so well done that I felt like there was no detail left ou

Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace


In February I read An Indecent Proposal: The Interview, and was hooked! I wanted to know more about Laurie and Chase. An Indecent Proposal: The Agreement, continues immediately after the first book, so you would have to read the first to understand what is going on. It was an exciting and sizzling read with a few twists thrown in to keep you on your toes!

I learned a lot more about both Laurie and Chase. Laurie became more comfortable around Chase

If I could give 1/2 stars, then I would give this book 2.5 stars. I was excited
to read this book because the beginning of the book was from Chase's pov. The rest of the book was from Laurie's pov. She drove me crazy because she is so helpless and whiny. She would lead Chase on and then get mad when he would try to take control of the situation. She got all defensive with his conditions on the marriage. What did she expect he was going to want out of the relationship. She was so naive. The endin

I loved reading this series, it always leaves me wanting more from each character. I loved Chase in the first book but this second book has me wondering what he's got himself into. Laurie finds herself in a situation she's not sure about however she really doenst have much choice, especially if she gets what she wants out of the agreement. Following Chase's demands isnt easy and Laurie doesnt plan on giving in anytime soon or so she says.

I love the banter between the characters, Chase is defini

Chase is still such a mystery to me and I can't seem to figure him out. I am normally really good at doing so but these authors got me good.
Chase is still dead set on marrying her and now he has some demands of his own. Some she may not be willing to deal with but then again does she really have a choice.
This book will have you begging for more. The details of this book are perfection even down to how her wedding dress looks.

After the mystery and suspense of book 1 in this series The Interview, I was really excited to read this book and it didn't dissapoint.

Chase has agreed to become Laurie's fake husband but problems start to arise when Laurie starts to develop real feelings for him. Chase also starts to make demands of his own which Laurie is not sure she can fulfil so where will this leave them and what is Chase reall

And the plot thickens. I definitely knew there was more to this story than what I was reading in the first book. Some pretty intriguing surprises popped up in this one and oh boy they were good. Even though, some of my questions have been answered, I still have so many more. While the story stayed pretty strong, I was a little disheartened at the direction that the characters went in this one.

Where to start? This is the second book in the Indecent Proposal series. While I love the first book in the series titled The Interview - I really struggled with Laurie in The Agreement. She is trying to decide if she wants to go through with the wedding to Chase and all of her whining about did me in. BUT the last couple of chapters reeled me back in and left me hanging and wondering what the crap would happen in the last book.

I really didn't like this book. I felt that it was all unnecessary words for nothing. Even though I read this first book, I found the characters unlikable this time around, and that this book was put out to fill dead space so to say.
I actually feel bad for not liking this book, because I do like J.C.'s other books. Mind you, I will read the third one as I want to know what the hell is going on.

I waited so long for this book to come out and now I have to wait again for the conclusion. I feel bad for Laurie only to finally trust and have her heart broken. Sometimes I believe her friend Jude is in on it, I guess I'll have to wait and see

Be advised: An Indecent Proposal: The Interview must be read BEFORE this installment.  This is not a standalone series.  If you haven't read The Interview yet... why not?!?

I remember after reading The Interview the first in this series being hooked from the word go and could not wait for The Agreement, the second book.

I finally got my hands on The Agreement for review. I loved how this book just flowed from the 1st book with no break in time. It was easy to pick up again and read.

Laurie and Chase are getting closer and although Laurie keeps denying it she secretly wants Chase, not just for the agreement they have but for longer but she knows that is just not possi

What I Loved:Once again the prologue sucks you in to the story and adds more mystery of some of the characters which I really loved. Also I really loved that we start to see what Chase is all about and his motivations for proposing to Laurier. We do get some questions answered but a lot more questions arise and I love not knowing what is going to happen next. Chase’s charm and charisma is probably what has interested me most in this series, so to see how all of this playing out between him and

This is the second part of Chase and Laurie's story that started with an indecent proposal.

This book pulls you in from the start as we continue with Laurie's turbulent and downright stressful lead up to her fake wedding.... I totally got her character and empathised with her moments of clarity when she was away from her lustful thoughts of Chase.

Finally, the long awaited book two, and I have to say it was well worth the wait.

The story in this book is very well written and developed and the plot is very fast paced and will keep you guessing till the end of the book. The chemistry between and Laurie and Chase, even though neither of them are willing to admit that they want each other, is amazing, without all the lies between them there could be a great relationship, and not the fake one that they have now.

In this follow up to The Interview, I was eager to find out more about Laurie and Chase and their plan to pull off the fake wedding. I didn't feel like answers from the first book were answered, instead I now have an even longer list for book three.
1. Who in the hell is Chase? We are told about these "dark looks", but is it more of Laurie's paranoia?
2. What in the world is Laurie so afraid of?? I understand her childhood was not typical, but alluding to the dark phobia without giving us a littl

While I liked this book, I didn't love it!

Laurie finds herself in a predicament needing to be married by her next birthday in order to claim her inheritance. She has no interest in the estate or the money. All she wants are letters her mother wrote. She "hires" Chase to be her fiance in order to do this. Chase is a hot, arrogant, confident guy. Laurie finds herself struggling with her feelings for her fake fiance. Chase has his own agenda that we don't discover until the ending. However,I think
