Title: The Proposal
Series: The Proposition, #2
Author: Katie Ashley
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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.

I had a lot more hope for this book, but the whole first half just upset me. I enjoyed mainly the end of the book the best. So overall I would say the book was only okay. 

This one is about Aidan trying to get forgiveness for the mistake he made before. He has to take care of Emma for a week while she's on bed rest. Emma is extremely confused about how she feels, and what she should do about Aidan. She doesn't know if she can trust him again if she decides to give him another chance. 

I truly hated Emma in this book. She was such a hypocrite. She basically did the same exact thing Aiden did to her, it was so stupid. She was so upset with him for hurting her, yet she basically does the same exact thing. Except I believe what she did was worse. I believe Aidan deserved some suffering for what he did, but he didn't deserve that. And it made Emma seem like a vindictive "witch." 

I won't be reading the next book in the series, but I'm happy with the way this one ended, and I do not care to read more. But it was a nice read.
