The Proposition by Katie Ashley

With her thirtieth birthday looming, Emma Harrison finds her biological clock clanging and the elusive knight in shining armor yet to appear. She’s running out of options, especially after her gay best friend backs out from being her sperm donor. Of course, there’s always a sperm bank, but Emma fears a donor mix-up might impregnate her with the spawn of Satan.

Resident company womanizer, Aidan Fitzgerald, is used to always getting what he wants, especially in the bedroom. When Emma spurns his advances at the company Christmas party, he's determined to have her no matter what it takes. After Aidan learns of Emma's predicament, he is quick to offer a proposition that will benefit them both. He will father Emma's child, but she must conceive it with him naturally. Not one for hook-ups or casual sex, Emma is reluctant to take him up on his offer, but his charm, coupled with her intense desire for motherhood, wins out.

Soon their baby-making sessions become more than just physical. Aidan can't seem to walk away from her while Emma begins to wonder if Aidan could be the one. But can Aidan leave his past behind to become the man Emma needs him to be?( Summary by

My Thoughts:
I kept seeing this book pop up on my Goodreads and Facebook feeds. Clearly drawn in because of the awesome cover, I was blown away by this book!

Emma is a beautiful person. You can't help but feel for her situation and understand why she is getting so desperate. that can't be easy and having to have a baby the way she is takes a lot of courage. I don't think Aiden was fully prepared for what being a sperm donor can mean. When you stick around and actually know the person, seeing them pregnant with your child is sure to bring up emotions and cause either party to become attached. He should have started to realize what was happening when both of their families seemed to accept them and want to support them. 

Aiden has a lot of growing up to do in this book. He does quite a bit, but I'm not sure if it will be enough! I was so sad at the end! I could have literally castrated him myself! I kept thinking this can't be happening right now!!!!! 

Poor Emma. To finally fall in love after everything that has happened to her and to then have her heart ripped out and spit on can't be easy. I can't wait to see what she does in the next book.

This book doesn't contain that insta-love. It is full of real emotions and characters that spend the book creating a relationship and growing emotions. There is a good chance you will laugh, smile, cheer, and become extremely angry by the time this book is over. If you haven't read it yet, I suggest you get on with it!

My Rating: 5 Stars!
