Review: Indecent Proposal by Molly O'Keefe

Indecent Proposal by Molly O'Keefe

    Perfect for readers of Susan Mallery and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s gritty and sensual tale of passion and politics features the brother of the heroine from the author’s beloved novel, Never Been Kissed. He’s a driven man who refuses to be distracted—until he meets a beautiful bartender who just may change his life.

    With his chiseled jaw and his thick blond hair, Harrison Montgomery was born to lead. Four generations of Montgomery men have served the state of Georgia and now he’s next in line. Harrison, though, is driven to right wrongs: namely to clean up the political mess left by his father’s greed and corruption. But Harrison must first win his congressional bid, and nothing can get in his way—not even an angel who served him whiskey and gave him a shoulder to lean on and a body to love for a night. Problem is, she’s pregnant. Scandal is brewing and there is only one solution: marriage.

    Damage control? Ryan Kaminski can’t believe that a cold, calculating political animal now inhabits the body of the emotionally vulnerable stranger who’d given her the most unforgettable night of her life. Really, she doesn’t want anything from Harrison, except to be left alone to have her baby in peace. But Ryan is broke, jobless, and essentially blackmailed by Harrison’s desperate family to accept this crazy marriage deal. For two years, she will have to act the role of caring, supportive wife. But what is Ryan supposed to do when she realizes that, deep in her heart, she’s falling in love.

    First Line: "Ken Doll is back."

    Review:  This is the fourth book in the Boys of Bishop series, I have never read any of the previous books in the series so I can't compare this one to the others and if it was better or not then the previous books in the series, but what I can say is that I found this to be a pretty entertaining read and flew through it fairly quickly.

     Ryan is a bartender and a model although she hasn't had much luck in the modeling department lately. The book starts off with Ryan meeting Harry. Ryan doesn't know who he really is and Harry or in this case Harrison Montgomery likes to keep it that way. They have a one night stand and that was supposed to be the end of it except Ryan gets pregnant and things get pretty complicated after that.

    As far as Ryan goes I really did like her although I did have to question her priorities when she slept with Harrison knowing if she got caught she could lose her job which she desperately needed, but I guess that needed to happen to move the plot along. Anyways I gained a lot of respect for her when she didn't let anyone including Harrison's mother walk all over her. She didn't take anyone's bs and trust me she had a lot of crap thrown her way once she entered Harrison's world. As far as Harrison goes he was bred into politics, his entire family line had something to do with politics and unfortunately because of that he never really got the love he deserved even from those closest to him, so when Ryan came along and challenged everything, well it was a sight to see. I loved the changes Ryan was making in him without either one of them realizing it.

    I loved the sexual tension between the two characters for majority of the book but somewhere along the way the tension fickled out and it started to drag in places a little bit. As for the ending I liked it but I would have loved to see how things went after they had the baby.

    Memorable Quotes:

    ~"He stared at the apple and then at her and back to the apple again. She'd thrown that at him, An apple. At his head! "Are you insane?"
    -"No, Harrison. I'm a Kaminski. And you can try to change me, and you can give me all the fine suits and speeches written by someone else you want, but underneath it, I'm Ryan Kaminiski, from Bridesburg, and this is how we argue."
