The Proposition, Elizabeth Hayley
A fun read, but a one off for me.
I loved Ben, couldn’t understand why he wanted to go to these lengths though just to fool his family. It seemed a bit nut and sledgehammer, and I couldn’t see why he just didn’t say No to them.
When more about his past came out it was a bit easier but it still sat a bit weird with me. He’s a nice guy though, very honest and straightforward – apart from the whole lying to his family thing 😉
Ryan, I really thought I’d like her – I didn’t dislike her, but there were times when I wanted to give her a shake….I understand independence, and she had a horrible background, but she a long time past that now.
” What does your mother do?” “Let’s just say she works in pharmaceuticals”
Reminded me of when I was working, we had to get the staff to fill in a police check as they were working with kids. One guy said he had a traffic offence – yep, traffic(ing) heroin…..Words are easy to mislead.
The chemistry between them was great, but for someone so allegedly famous, who’s career was at risk if this all came out I was surprised he never got Papped when out with a lady, never got followed by those who wanted a story. That usually follows fame, but he seemed to live a pretty sheltered, private life.
You know at some point the secret will come out but I didn’t expect it to get done that way, caught me by surprise and I love it when that happens. I like to be kept on my toes when reading, for the unpredictable to happen.
I loved the other guys (and girls) too, made for a good cast of characters. I did find the ending and the family issues a little quick to get resolved, they felt a bit rushed and too much too soon but….
Stars: three and a half, a fun read, but not a re-reader for me.
