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.

our thoughts

It is moments like these where I have to be honest with a review. I loved The Proposition and remember wanting to build a time machine so that I could leap to the date when The Proposal was going to be released and I didn’t have to wait for it. I was so ready to start this book and just be in as much as love with it as I was the first, but unfortunately, I wasn’t. Honestly, I can’t really explain why. I have some theories: maybe I waited too long between the books and had a hard time connecting with the characters again, or maybe it was just me this time and something didn’t click. Whatever it was, I just didn’t feel the same while reading. And I feel so bad that I didn’t connect with it. I really, really do.

I still love Emma and Aidan. You know from the moment they got together in The Proposition that they were meant to be together for life. This book allowed me to see the strain on their relationship from Aidan’s inability to commit and how far he was willing to go to get Emma back. It was so sweet. He truly stepped up in this book. And I loved Emma’s pregnancy hormones throughout the book. One minute she wanted Aidan and the next she hated his guts. I thought Pesh’s arrival was a great addition to the plot line because he made both Emma and Aiden realize what they truly wanted. Plus, he was just a great guy.
