Asian Chick, Karmen’s Review of The Proposition

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I hate cliff hangers! BUT WAIT…The Proposal, is released early, as in TODAY, 01/11/13! I’m excited to find out what happens with Emma and Aidan, so you can bet that I’ll be reading it this weekend! You must read The Proposition first, so don’t get too excited about the 2nd book just yet! In The Proposition, Emma is a soon-to-be 30 year-old, whose biological clock is ticking. So she is looking to have a baby, someone to call family. Then along comes, Aidan, Mr. Playboy/Mr. Just-Wants-a-Good-Time, who offers her a proposition—give her a baby, with no strings attached, but they must do it naturally. It’s his way of them both getting what they want. And you know, it’s not going to be that simple…emotions, hearts and feelings get in the way!

I have to say, I wasn’t a huge fan of Emma in the beginning. Her desperation for motherhood was a little overkill, and she constantly was nagging over everything. But she won me over with her witty attitude! Aidan, eventually won me over too, even though he was an ass (a hot ass)! Hmmmm…I dying to know if Aidan will change? Can Emma change him? Or does she even want to? Guess we’ll, just have to find out in The Proposal, so I’ll let you know!

Favorite Quote: “Is this one of those contracts like in that kinky book where we outline what we’re willing to do or not do during sex? Like our hard limits and safe words?

So I have to be honest and say I didn’t really enjoy this book and it wasn’t because of the writing it was because of the female character Emma Watson.  The two main characters of this book are Emma Watson and Aidan Fitzgerald.  Firstly, I loved Aidan and I would take him any day of the week.  As a matter of fact I loved him and he is what made me finish this book.  Here are the two main reasons I didn’t like Emma – she seemed to whine a lot and I didn’t like the fact that at age 30 she felt that she couldn’t be truly happy in life if she didn’t have a child.  There are lots of people out there who can’t have children or don’t want them that are happy.  It just seemed extremely extreme that age 30 she was so desperate to be a single mom and then gets all possessive and whiny when Aidan knocks her up but doesn’t act exactly how she want him to.  Ugghhh sorry but I just didn’t like Emma so that kind of ruined the book for me.
