Release Date: August 30, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing- Forever
Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the “values” Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family-and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O’Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name . . . yet she still can’t stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian’s own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast-and how hard-she’s falling for him.
Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at “hello,” even if she’s more inclined to say good-bye to an O’Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn’t, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying-and dying-for . . .
The Marriage Contract (Book 1)
The Wedding Pact (Book 2)
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. She found romance novels at age twelve and it changed her life. When not writing sexy contemporary and speculative fiction romance novels, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her wee ones, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
I am loving this series – it’s highly addictive. I could not wait to start An Indecent Proposal. The members of the O’Malley family are kind of emotionally chaotic but you don’t want to mess with them because they’re also smart, clever and violent. It makes reading about them exciting!
Anyway, at this point in the series the relationships and hierarchy between all the various mafia families are a bit fragile. You are either in a position of power or vulnerable. It is a delicate balance that the key players are trying to work their way through and Cillian and Olivia find themselves right in the middle of it all.
As their passionate relationship develops it becomes complicated and dramatic because nothing about their lives is easy or simple. It honestly felt like Olivia and Cillian were fighting against the world and in the end they only had each other to see them through all their battles.
It makes for thrilling and suspenseful reading. I loved it.
But what I truly enjoyed most about this book was that both characters were constantly surprising me. From their personalities to their reactions to all life throws at them, each moment kept me on my toes. Their connection and journey together is definitely one you don’t want to miss out on.
So whether you’re a fan of the series like me or you are just hearing about the O’Malley, I highly suggest giving this series a go. It’s a top recommendation from me.
