Once you go Bram you won’t give a damn.


Reputation matters.
Unfortunately for, Bram, he can't get away from his past of being labeled as a playboy and a screw up. When he tries to be nice to Nicola and her daughter he's met with resistance because she doesn't trust his intentions. It's not just Nicola who distrust the man that Bram has become. The only one who really looks at Bram with love in their eyes is her daughter... the innocence of the young.

Wham, Bam, thank you BRAM! 4.5 STARS

So many Bram-isms! Honestly, I could spend the day coming up with ways to use him the name. I've been thinking about my motto for Bram McGregor... he's definitely inspired me to be a perv!

The original motto:
Do it, do it right, do it right now.

I like my Bram version much better:

As steamy, sexy, pervy & unforgettably hot as this book is ... the story is so much more! It is also an incredibly sweet, intelligent and mature romance.

Love is simple...yeah right.

The Offer is the first story I have read by Karina Halle. I know I'm late to the party and always planned to read her work, but I'm glad this was my first. This story is about taking risks to find your happy place and learning that trust is hard to earn and once broken hard to earn back. Life is not always easy and sometimes you need to accept help when it's offered especially when it benefits a loved one. Communication is the foundation to every relationship and the

After enjoying The Pact so much, I was positive that The Offer was going to be just as good. I mean Bram is Linden's brother, he has to be just as yummy. And he is! Too bad the book wasn't all about him.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the book. I loved everything about Bram and Nicola. What I didn't like as much was I felt there was too much focus on Ava, Nicola's daughter. Yes, what happened to her is a very important and serious subject but I felt it overwhelmed the story at

The Offer by Karina Halle is the sequel to The Pact and this is Bram McGregor (Linden’s playboy brother) and Nicola, Stephanie’s best friend.

Nicola Price is struggling to get her life together. Barely able to support herself and her daughter, Ava alone, she now finds herself without a job after being fired. At thirty-one, she finds herself in a very scary situation and it continues to get worse when her little girl is diagnosed with child diabetes. Her life has hit rock-bottom.

I was looking forward to reading this book. I needed to know more about the playboy that is Bram MC Gregor. He is so hot and sexy but through the book u could see this playboy turning into a really caring man I luvd him by the end there was parts I could of killed him but he won me over by the end.

4 "Everything in due time" STARS

While part of a series, this can be read as a stand alone. I was "meh" about the first book although I fell for Linden. I wasn't sure I'd like Bram but like his brother Linden, he grew on me real quick.

Both Nicola and Bram are fighting to break a mold that's been put upon them by others and/or circumstance. Bram's been labelled a manwhoring, playboy and all around screw up whereas, Nicola's the stuck-up prude given she has a young child and has had to grow up rea

I love Karina Halle's writing. The EIT books are among my faves. But it seems like her contemporaries (aside from Love in English) are all a big mess. This book has a deplorable manwhore as a hero and a prideful, tstl single mom as a heroine. The book started rough, but I figured it had to get better. But no; it only went downhill. Even when they finally get together it's not happy for long. I can honestly say I didn't really like either main character.

2.5 stars

Although it can be read as a standalone, The Offer is a spin-off of Karina Halle’s popular The Pact. I was less than impressed with The Pact, but I wanted to give this book a chance because a romance about a single mom in her thirties sounded interesting. There aren’t nearly enough good love stories featuring characters thirty and older. Plus, the cover looks really cool. Sadly, I’m more enthusiastic about the cover than I am about the actual book. It really is so very pretty.

Now "knowing" what happened in the book I can easily say that this author is a dead end to me!

For a single mother/heroine to have to put a music on to "silence the loud noises of sex" of the Hero next door so that her daughter will not hear it IS NON OTHER BUT A VERY DISTASTEFUL, REPULSIVE AND NASTY way of portraying a cultural drift from traditional romance gender!

YES we read different romances with different "Heroes" a manwhores or non-manwhores and Its true that some of these traits add hints

I listened this story verses reading it and I was not a fan of the narration, it wasn't the worse I have listened to, but at times distracting.

As for the story, like all Karina's story it had tons of feels and originality. I love this series!

3.5 This one was better than I expected

I liked the MC, and I really liked the chemistry between the two.
Even the plot was decent, so in my book, it was an above-average read. Even more, the cover was really cool!

All in all, worth giving a try. It might surprise you!

Confession #1: I was too embarrassed to post this book cover to Instagram/Twitter as a book I was currently reading. I don't believe in censorship but I also wasn't sure I believed in associating this book with my reading. Ha.

The cover is steamy; the book is not so much at first, dithering around the subjects of single parenting, childhood type 1 diabetes, and IKEA, and suddenly the storyline matches the cover. This happened to me as I was walking across campus to my office, earbuds in, feeling

Well I really loved this story and I have to say that it actually surprised me. I didn’t expect such a mature book. I loved the way Karina Halle developed her story and the characters, it was refreshing not reading again about annoying and immature people.
The story around the difficulties of being a single mom was actually very good and touching. Personally as a reader I could understand the whole situation and the battle of Nicola. As for Bram, well he is another story. I was really

Sweet and unexpectedly romantic and SEXY!! I love a story with a single mom and The Offer has that plus much more. I loved all the characters in this book, plus Steph and Lident make appearances as well. However, you do not need to have read The Pact to enjoy this story. Nicola is living on the edge, trying to make a home for her daughter Ava but struggling to make ends meet since Ava's dad is absent. Along comes Bram, who seems to be quite the sexy player, confident and bold.

Bram is the wealthy playboy that doesn't want to be tied down. Nicola is a single mom struggling to provide for herself and her daughter. When the two first meet at a wedding it ends in Bram shagging another woman and Nicola going home hating him. But after that disastrous meeting Bram steps up and tries his damnedest to woo Nicola into giving him a shot.

The characters were making it hard for me to enjoy this one. Right from the start I was getting annoyed with Nicola and her constantl
The Offer is an adult contemporary romance novel written by Karina Halle. Although this book follows characters that were previously introduced in The Pact, The Offer is its own story and is marketed as a standalone novel. So far, these McGregor Brothers books can be read in any order.

I've gotta admit this one tugged on my heartstrings a little bit. Single mom, kid with medical problems, a man who is weighed down by past reputations. The struggles are real and I easily empathized with the charac

I love everything about this book....well first and most of all is Bram..he is sexy and dirty and oh did I mention Scotish! I love a man with an accent!

What I loved MOST about this book was this was a beautiful story about grown adults so there was no unnecessary was mature, realistic and SO much fun!

So what's it about?

Well we met Bram (Linden's brother) and single mom Nicola in the Pact and The Offer is their story.

I was really surprised by this one. I mean its Karina Halle, so I expected like explosions and shit followed by crazy Mexican dudes coming out of the bushes, saying "AHA I tricked you into thinking this was just a single mom down on her luck type of diddy!!!"
But nah, it really was single mom down on her luck type of diddy.

And I really liked it.

Which is saying a lot since I have been in the worst book funk where I think most everything I glance at is suckage.

Oh brother...

The main character absolutely held no interest for me...I disliked the guy merely cause he was 'intense like a pest' very annoyingly present under the false descriprion for 'charm' *roll eyes*

And then I just gave into the meh action of aggravating angst and pent up tension of a climax in the plot that really just there to annoy me.

Damn, I guess this book came to me at the wrong time...even though, the 'enemies to.lovers' was the right trope, the execution of it was just tacky...

The Play is about 2 persons who has been crash and burn, find each other and heal each other in the most intimate way. Bram certainly the perfect playboy hero. Skirt chaser who have soft heart when it comes to Nicola, a single mother.

Their relationship is well develop. There is that insta lust. But their love develop over time. I love the part where Bram grovel back t

This series keeps getting better and better. I'm glad Karina Halle decided to make an adult romance series about people in their thirties. The characters and the topics are very relatable.

It's such a great core of people. I now know them from the first book, The Pact, so it's easy to dive back into the scene.

This book focuses on Nicola and Bram. Nicola, a single mom with a cute five year old daughter Ava. Bram, Linden's older brother. He's got money and can catch a chick whenever it pleases him.
