The Proposition AND The Proposal by Katie Ashley

The Proposition 

Book Blurb:

 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?

Angie J's Review:

SO do you remember when I went to Nashville to meet Katie, Jasinda and Tara??? I mentioned how my friend Melinda and I started reading Katie's books to each other to pass the 8 hour drive to and fro???  Well this was a book we started on the trip back and we laughed our asses off.

Aiden is a total DOUCHEBAG.  When the name was given to a man for the first time, I am sure it was told to him!!!   He is a manwhore totally.  He wants one night stands or emotionally empty hookups.  He is not going to get his heart broken and that is it.  It is all on his terms and when a girl gets to involved...bye bye baby.  So he sees sweet, innocent, naive hottie Emma and approached her at the Christmas party (not in this novel but back story for ya).  Her cock blocking friends warn her about him and she rebuffs him.  Dude is bummed and also shocked cuz noone says no to Aiden.......Well fast forward a few months and Em is having a massive "i want a baby attack".  Her best friend....her best GAY friend Connor's partner wont allow him to father Em's baby.  Well Aiden comes to the rescue.  He offers a Proposition....conceive the old fashioned way and he will donate his DNA to her cause.  Well Baby Fever makes Em desperate and she agrees.  Plus as he says "he will bring some good looking DNA to the table!!"

Now I shouldn't mention this but *snickers* I know you wanna know....the sex is hot.  Like REALLY EMBARRASSING to read to a best friend type hot. Katie defo didn't skim on the baby making fun that is for sure.

Ok back to my review......Emma knows she is in love but knowing Aiden she  keeps quiet about her feelings.  She knows that he will run for the hills or the thighs of any eager skank around.   Aiden is having trouble with the way Em makes him feel.  He tries to deny it and freaks out alot when stuff happens during her pregnancy.  So he decided that he can totally walk away from Emma without any trouble.  He does a total DB move (which I wont tell) and then realizes he has utterly screwed up all his happiness.  The end of the novel is a cliffhanger so be sure to have downloaded book 2 right after reading this.  Emma is broken hearted and Aiden is a a mess.  I am so excited to start book 2.  I will as soon as I post this review.

The Proposal

Book Blurb:

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

Angie J's Review:

WOWZERS!!!!  Ok so this book begins right where the last book ended...Aiden is broken and totally doing everything he can to get Em back.  She is soooo not going to have it because he has utterly and completely broken her heart.  Well a little bit of a medical drama from his pop and then Em and Aiden see each other.  Well, Pop decides to do a little match making for Em and ...wait for it.....not Aiden but the Doctor!!!  LOL  Well needless to say Aiden isn't thrilled with daddy-o.  His response is to step up Aidens game to win her back.  Well the stress of the baby daddy drama plus Pop in the hospital causes Em to go on bedrest.  Where does she go you ask?  Why to Aiden's of course.  He is so sweet and doing everything including growing a vagina *giggles*.  Well Em begins a self destructive path herself because, like Aiden in last book, she is freaking out.  She is really hurtful to Aiden and starts DATING people while living with her baby daddy!!!!!  SMH....oh Em!!!
  Well Em and Aiden realize they belong together and that was a pretty hot, intense scene .  Aiden finally admits some things to Em that she has been dying to hear come out of his lips. 
 I loved in the book when Casey and Nate get married.  The wedding was a riot when Casey freaks they are short a groomsman and asks douchenozzle Aiden to fill in *snort I love her nicknames for their wedding*.  Well Aiden has a little surprize up his sleeve for our girl Em and it was soooo sweet.  I think I knew it was going to happen but at the same time loved HOW "it" happened.....you wanna know dontchya???  To be honest, i can't really tell much more about the story of I will ruin the whole novel!!!!  Just trust me, if you liked book 1 then you will love book 2.
Well the epilogue of this book is great.  I loved how settled Em and Aiden are with Baby Noah.  I love how we get to hear what is going on with the careers and their HEA is discussed.  I also love the bomb that Em drops......poor poor Aiden will have his hands full!!!!
