Overview

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, he¹s 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 Emma¹s 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 can¹t 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?

The Proposition is the first book in The Proposition series by author Katie Ashley. I really liked this story. It is sexy and endearing. As noted in the book's synopsis, the female lead Emma wants to have a baby but she is not in a relationship and she does not want to use a sperm bank. Her gay best friend initially offers but then backs out. The male lead Aiden offers to help but he wants something in return...his stipulation is that they have to conceive naturally. “I’m talking about a little proposition for us both to get something we really, really want. I give a little, and you give a little.” I really liked Emma's character. She is sweet and she has a good heart. Aiden's character has an interesting layering to him and he quickly grew on me throughout the story. The question in this book is: Can a "baby-making" agreement like Emma and Aiden's stay nonemotional? Can a womanizer like Aiden change his ways? The Proposition ends on a cliffhanger and I immediately started searching for the next book in the series, The Proposal. I recommend this book to fans of sexy adult contemporary romance stories who don't mind hearing a woman's biological clock ticking...loudly. My favorite quotes: "A MWF sex schedule? How efficient," he mused. "Please be serious." A wicked grin flashed on his face. "Fine, pencil me in. I'll be ready and erect whenever you need me."

The Proposition was a very good story with a capturing storyline. The characters are very believeable as we have all met people just like them. Emma wanted a baby, and Aiden offered her the solution, his cocky, witty, endearing personality reminds me of so many men. The only part of the story that I had a problem with was how quickly Emma agreed to the arrangement with Aiden, especially since she was so worried about the anonymity of the sperm bank, and she did not really know him all that well. The cliff hanger ending did frustrate me a bit but honestly left me wanting more. I am looking forward to reading the proposal.
