Propositioning the Playboy

Rate this book
Rule #1: Don't fall in love. Rule #2...see rule #1...

Grace Williams doesn't need a hero. She can take care of herself, thank you very much. Surviving foster care and becoming a respected scientist certainly taught her how. Now, she's finally ready to do something for herself and have a baby. All she'll need is a genetically blessed donor who won't get any ideas in his head about sticking around after the job's done. And she has the perfect gorgeous, commitment-phobic donor in mind.

Liam McNamara doesn't want a relationship. Being abandoned by his mother at a young age and his failed marriage cured him of any romantic notions he might've had. But when his best friend's sexy older sister asks him for a favor, he can't say no. And if he manages to give her a few--or a few hundred--orgasms in the process? All the better. It's a winning proposition all the way around.

It's not long before their best laid plans are blown out of the water by the last thing either of them expected to get out of the deal--genuine feelings. Maybe love isn't such a losing proposition after all...

JM Stewart writes heartfelt contemporary romance. Whether the heat level is sizzling or sweet, her stories are always deeply emotional. Her heroes are strong but sensitive (no alpha jerks here!), and her heroines are more Cinderella than Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Recently transplanted, she now lives in a small town in Texas along with her husband, two sons and two very spoiled dogs. When not writing, she enjoys reading, cooking and playing computer games. As a sensitive soul with a romantic heart, she believes in angels and hopes everyone finds their happily ever after.

Pleasantly surprised by a new-to-me author. Full disclosure: I received an ARC free of charge from Romance Rehab/Romance Remedy.

REVIEW: PROPOSITIONING THE PLAYBOY is the second instalment in JM Stewart’s contemporary, adult THE BLUE ROOM erotic, romance series. This is thirty-five year old scientist Grace Williams, and co-owner of the Blue Room Liam McNamara’s story line. PROPOSITIONING THE PLAYBOY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalment is revealed where necessary.

Told from dual third person perspectives (Liam and Grace) PROPOSITIONING THE PLAYBOY follows the brother’s best friend to lovers relationship between thirty-five year old scientist Grace Williams, and co-owner of the Blue Room Liam McNamara. Grace Williams is thirty five years old, with no current prospects for the future, and in such, our heroine has considered becoming a single mother. Having lusted after her brother’s best friend and business partner Liam McNamara for as long as she can remember, Grace makes Liam an offer he struggles to refuse-father her child, the old fashion way leaving Grace to raise their child, on her own. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Grace and Liam, and the potential fall-out as their time together comes to a close.

Liam McNamara is the co-owner of the high-end sex club The Blue Room but is taken aback when his best friend’s sister takes advantage of what the club has to offer. Having been raised in the foster care system along with Grace’s brother Jake, Liam vowed never to have children but struggled with someone else fathering Grace’s child.

The relationship between Grace and Liam is one of immediate attraction; a best friend’s sister relationship wherein Liam has promised to look after Grace but in doing so believes he should keep his distance for the sake of his friendship. Grace Williams has issues of low self esteem, and struggles to achieve the almighty ‘O’. There are some scenes of light bondage and sensory depravation. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.

We are reintroduced to Liam’s partners at The Blue Room: Hunter and Jenna (Seducing the Billionaire #1), Jake Williams, and Max.

PROPOSITIONING THE PLAYBOY is a spicy story of family and love. The premise is engaging and inviting; the romance is tender and sensual; the characters are energetic, and spirited.

This is the second book in the series and one I truly enjoyed. I'm a fan of brother's best friend trope. For me it was beautiful the way Liam was with Grace. It brought a side to him he thought didn't exist. Also the trust and patience he had to make Grace feel special and the woman she truly is. That was one of my favorite parts of the book. Grace and Liam have an agreement, but for the history these two have feelings and emotion are very hard to keep out of it. It's a book you can easily get lost in. It has a great balance of heart and heat.
