Review of The Proposal

The Proposal

The Proposal is a romance novel by Katie Ashley. It’s book 1 in a 2 book series.

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.

But fate intervenes when premature labor forces Emma on strict bed rest for two weeks. Aidan steps forward with a shocking proposal. To prove his love and commitment for her and their unborn son, he will take a leave of absence from work to care for her around the clock. Vowing to guard her heart, Emma reluctantly agrees.

While she is touched by Aidan’s attentiveness and tender loving care, Emma is thrown for a loop by the amorous attentions of ER doctor, Alpesh “Pesh” Nadeen. Pesh is everything Emma could ever want—successful, stable, and ready to settle down and be a husband and father. Pesh wants nothing more than to win Emma’s heart, but she is not sure she’s able to give it.

Her heart may still belong to the very man who broke it—the one who is so desperately trying to win her back.

This book is the continuation of The Proposition and picks up where the previous book left off.

Not all men are perfect and this books proves that very thing. To get through this book you have to go through a lot of dealing with broken hearts and dick head boyfriends until finally you come out on the other side with your happily ever after.

The story was good but not great. It had a lot of the editing problems as the previous volume. There weren’t just grammatical problems but actual typos that the author didn’t even bother to fix before going to print.

The book tried to introduce a love triangle but it didn’t really work. It just felt so forced and un-realistic. What doctor would hit on a women in the ER who is obviously super pregnant? I mean, come on!

The weird part of this book is she author took a perfectly likable heroine and turned her into an emotionally unstable, manipulative, annoying nut job.

While at the same time she turned the alpha male into some sort of sniveling whiny ass hat that you just can’t respect.

I don’t know. I think this book wasn’t necessary. Honestly she could have added another 20 or 25 pages to the first book and be done with it.
