A sexy symphony of danger, chicanery, loss, raw emotions, and a mafia romance like no other!!!!

Katee Robert does it again! This series is so full of character and emotion - the pages practically turn themselves.

I was already half in love with Cillian from his small introduction in The Wedding Pact, but after this book, I'm all in. He's an enigmatic kind of hero - the guy you can never quite get a true read on. His three-piece suits and cocky demeanor hide his vulnerability and self-inflicted torment. In other words - he's perfect!

Olivia is a bit of a mystery as well. She's got the tough g

DNF'ing this after, I don't know, I must have definitely crossed the 60% mark. Can't be bothered to look it up.

After a week of not touching the book, I can barely remember what the conflict was about. So I'm not going to rate it, either.

Too many other books I really want to read!

I wish wish wish I would have read the two books before this one, and I definitely want to go back and read them. It sounds like we get more of a picture of Cillian before the Cillian we see in this book, given the hints of the next siblings throughout this book. I am very intrigued by this family. This crime/mafia book definitely stands out among the others. It is more emotional and not as violent.

Well now .... this is the second book this week that has the hero taking me by surprise. Yeah, so Cillian O'Malley is not your typical hard mafia male. He's actually quite soft, but do not mistaken his softness for weakness ;) okay, I just wanted to get that little tid-bit out of the way. He surprised me. And I liked it....

Katee Robert didn't just write about different couples in this series. She also wrote about a family. So even thought, technically, the books can be read as standalones, I don

This is a disaster book. All credited to Olivia. She is such annoying character. I want to bitch slap her. She is needy, stupid and weak character. I wait for her character to develop but she does not. Her trust issue with Cillian is very very annoying. And Cillian goes to any length to protect her and her daughter.

Cillian needs a stronger and kick ass heroine for his character to develop. What a pity for Cillian. And the story also feels dead due to Olivia.

As the third story in the O’Malleys series, An Indecent Proposal has a hard act to follow, with the first story in the series, The Marriage Contract getting a well deserved 2016 RITA nomination and the second story, The Wedding Pact just as exciting and explosive as the first. You’d think all the cats would be out of the bag by now, but that’s not the case at all. With the Romanov family seemingly becoming entrenched in the Boston mob scene, it’s Olivia that gets to be the heroine here, in the d ...more

Cillian and Sloan’s story was fantastic. Excellent addition to the series. Loved it!

There were so many different dynamics at play and they were all woven together perfectly. So much conflict, tension, a lot of different layers, and multiple POV's happening. This was a full, intriguing story that had me turning the page like a mad woman.

I really liked Cillian and Sloan. Cillian was fighting demons from his past and trying to move on. It's was almost like he was stuck, wanting to break free. He is
This series just keeps on getting more enthralling! I’ve really enjoyed every book in it which I’ve read so far, including this one.

This time it is Cillian O’Malley that is the troubled brother who is the focus for this instalment . . . he has been changed dramatically in attitude and behaviour after his beloved younger brother was assassinated i ...more

Katee Robert continues to enthrall readers with this passionate, emotional and riveting installment of her O'Malley series where the antidote for greed and deception is love and loyalty.

Cillian O'Malley knows that his family lost the best part of it when his brother was killed and his role in what happened is something he is yet to forgive himself for, but that loss was the wake up call he needed to clean up his act and step into his place in the family business. The thing is, that loss has also

When life, and love, get very complicated….

Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. They fall in love and everyone is happy. So simple, right? It would be but that is not what you will find here. Here, love is very, very complicated. It is also sexy, emotional and entertaining to the last page!

The O’Malley family is being torn apart by grief and divided loyalties. Complex and suspenseful just scratches the surface when trying to describe the plot running through these stories. There are multiple crime fa

Olivia and Cillian finally hook up after all their flirtations in the last book. What Cillian doesn't realize is all the baggage she brings with her. Dimitri is her brother, she has a child and the baby daddy wants her back. None of that phases Cillian though. I didn't like this one as much as the previous books. Olivia and her inner dialogue was distracting and annoying at times. She debated everything with herselfI loved Cillian though, and you know the promise that he had to make at the end ...more

Favorite Quotes:

I like you Cillian – you’re a good for the most part – but trouble follows you around like stink on a pig.

She was a big woman who looked like she came from a family of lumberjacks and bench-pressed trees for fun.

And if she waffled any more, she was going to have to douse herself in syrup and serve herself on a plate for Sunday breakfast.

The woman had more spikes than a porcupine…

My Review:

An Indecent Proposal is book three in the angsty Irish Mafia family series by Katee Robert.
Andrea Peralta
I didn't really like Cellian on the previous books, I still like his story well enough but definitely not as much as Teagues or Carrigans. This story redeems him as a character by learning how not to be a selfish asshole. Protecting Olivia and her daughter give him a purpose.
I truly don't like Sloan character, I find her to be weak and a bit of a nuisance in the first three books. I will not be reading her story, I don't think it would make a difference in the great scheme of things.

This book contains adult themes.

This is the third book in the O’Malley series by Katee Robert and follows Cillian the third oldest brother of the O’Malley family as he is trying to get his life together.

Cillian has the bad boy reputation of the family since his younger wild days. Cillian is working on getting his life together, but struggling with the death of his youngest brother Devlin that is a major focus of the series. Cillian ends up meeting a woman he becomes infatuated with named Olivia

I think I gotta start with the fact that for once I've actually been super good and read the series in order. Which is a feat for me, hence I feel it needs some mention. But saying that.. you actually don't have to. Each book could stand on it's own. So if you like me, don't care for minor spoilers- then, go ahead and read which ever book appeals to you most first. Then again, there are the minor spoilers. But more importantly Robert prepares her readers for the next books, with POV of

I'm so in love with Katee Robert's O'Malley series. Katee Robert is at her best here and with every book, I keep acquiring more book boyfriends and more romances to swoon over. As much as I loved the first two books, I think An Indecent Proposal is my favorite in the series so far.

The main reason why this is my favorite is Cillian. I didn't think I could love him more than Teague from the first book, but he totally swept me away. I fell hard for this guy and he gave me all kinds of butterflies.

Cillian O’Malley is still struggling with the death of his younger brother and assuming his role as the family bookkeeper. A former party boy, he has given up drinking and troublemaking but his family still sees him as a selfish indulgent player. Despite his rough edges, I really liked Cillian. He is what I would call a sensitive. He may not always agree with things, but he is able to see all sides. He also feels a great deal and for the right woman he could be a prince.

Can a member of a prestige mob family, even as estranged as she was, ever escape the life? Olivia Rashidi is coming to terms that despite her leaving and telling her half-brother to shove family loyalty, she can’t escape the mob ties. No one understands this better than Cillian O’Malley, middle son of a neighboring mob family. She does her best to reject and ignore Cillian’s charms but she’s only human. Spending a reckless encounter together puts them on a path that neither will

I love the O’Malleys, so eagerly look forward to new books in the series. Truthfully, I’d read a book about their dentist as long as the three families were included. Thankfully book three featured Cillian, the wild O’Malley who’s never been interested in being part of the family business. I was intrigued, and couldn’t wait to get to know him better.

The overwhelming guilt from his younger brother’s death has changed him in ways his family doesn’t acknowledge. He’s tortured, giving up his wild l

An Indecent Proposal is jam-packed with action on all levels, however, the plot is exceptionally complex, with threads weaving from one book to another, as well as different characters viewpoints scattered through the narrative. this is definitely a series that needs to be read in order.

Review for An Indecent Proposal by Katee Robert

Take another walk into the lives of the O’Malley family and fall in love with Cillian O’Malley in An Indecent Proposal by Katee Robert. This is book three in the series, it can be read as a standalone, but I’d suggest reading them in order because the first two books are just as amazing as this one!

An Indecent Proposal was a bit slow in parts but still an overall great read that I really enjoyed. I loved watching Cillian and Olivia fall from each other.

I truly appreciated the fact that Olivia was a smart, fierce, feisty heroine and that Cillian was not only protective but also treated her as an equal partner. I found their relationship utterly charming.

That little teaser at the end for Forbidden Promises has me so excited for Sloan's book.

I'm about half way into this series and I'm enjoying it! But, I am definitely ready to give it a few comparisons...just to classify the series as a whole at this point. I would say these are quick and easy reads - a bit of action, romance, a tad insta-love, a bit of brokenness but nothing super deep or earth shattering. The stories so far, surround a Boston mob family(The O'Malley's), that are intertwined with a few other mob families. The O'Malley family has a lot of kids and arranged marriage ...more
