Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we’re looking forward to.
This week’s can’t-wait-to-read selection is:
Title: An Indecent Proposal
Author: Katee Robert
Release Date: August 30, 2016
Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the “values” Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family-and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O’Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name . . . yet she still can’t stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian’s own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast-and how hard-she’s falling for him.
Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at “hello,” even if she’s more inclined to say good-bye to an O’Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn’t, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying-and dying-for . . .
Why I’m looking forward to it:
This series is so much better than I ever expected. It took me a little while and dozens of great reviews to give it a try; I’m not usually interested in the inner workings of the mob. But I should have known Katee Robert wouldn’t disappoint. These don’t read very well as standalones, so if you’re planning to pick it up, start at the beginning with The Marriage Contract.
What about you? What are you looking forward to this week?
