Book Description

Sept. 6 2011
"I will convince my father to unfreeze the amount for the surgery despite the financial checking that is currently going on. In return, you will help with this little problem I have." Talk about a 'little' problem: his father wants him to marry, and Arthur chooses Maya... as a fake girlfriend to avoid walking down the aisle. If only she had another way to save Matthew's life, she would slam her door on the jerk's face with pleasure. Arthur is so... arrogant. Self-righteous. One track-minded. Handsome... Not that his looks matter, anyway. His proposal is simply shocking. A young boy's life is not something to bargain with! Plus, between her work, Christmas preparations and those threats against her charity foundation, Maya has no time for absurd fantasies about Arthur. No time at all. Even if he is awfully nice when he wants to...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Story To Fall In Love With April 4 2012
By Bukcrz - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author sold me 100% in the romance between the main characters. One reviewer is correct that this is not a 'love at first sight' kind of romance.
The heroine is quite likeable and passionate in her cause. I love that the author was able to make her three dimentional and was able to let me in her previlaged world. Her blind loyalty to her sister and almost passive blindness to her fault - though make sense - is a peeve.
The hero, *sigh* what can I say since he melts my heart one instant and made me want to knock his head the next. I am glad that this attitude was addressed immediately just when his mixed signals started to annoy me. He is presented as a burn-out playboy just ready to be roped in with just the right woman.
Watching the romance blossom between the main characters is like falling in love myself and I love that the author showed that. It's a treat considering a lot of the books I picked up lately adhered to the love at first sight kind of thing that this is a welcome change. The repeated sexual tension is great at first - and though it neatly made the hero a to-die-for man - it became frustrating *grins*.
Secondary characters are as memorable, the villain and friends alike.
A story worth reading mainly because it was well written.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a rather different storyline than usual. I loved the interaction between Arthur and Maya. Arthur's father was such a pig, I disliked him intensely. A very pleasant read. Will look forward to reading more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Indecent Proposal Oct. 3 2014
By Huckleberry Flynn - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I don’t read a lot of romances and so I took a more “anthropological” view of this work. What are the elements that make a romance novel successful? I think this book has quite a few of them. First, it explores the theme of why girls (I mean women) always fall for bad boys (I mean boys). At first, the main male love interest doesn’t seem to have much going for him except his good looks. But let’s face it: people buy cars on their looks, and because of their maintenance records, every single day. Many women will read this work and easily view Arthur as a man to be desired. Second, I also believe that most women favor the romantic fantasy of turning the bad guy toward the good; thus saving him from himself. And on this point, the book delivers. Its pure fantasy of course (bad boys stay bad in real life) but this formula works quite well for a romance. This book is not advised if you don’t like fantasy of the romantic variety! But it’s a good romp, wink, wink.

I enjoyed this book. There were several unexpected twists to the plot, not what I was expecting. This was a bit different and held my interest from page 1 to the end.
