She thinks he’s an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she’s an uptight prude.
But he’s about to make her an offer she can’t refuse.
Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola’s perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.
Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She’s struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she’d be at age thirty-one.
Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It’s pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn’t mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.
But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.
She might just lose her heart.
Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble…
Every time I finish a book by Karina Halle, I end up completely pleased, and it’s been this way since Darkhouse, I just love her style in general so much, we all have that author we always come back to, she writes fluently, no matter the genre, thanks to her social media we are up to date on how her novels are going, and we can see she’s a fast writer also. I cannot recommend her enough, honestly. If you haven’t read her novels, then you should, if you like original, intense and particular characters and situations.
Now, The Offer is an adult sexy fun novel, the characters Bran McGregor and Nicola Price were introduced in The Pact, but The Offer can be read as a standalone, I loved both characters, they’re in their 30’s and dealing whit their own issues, I could understand easily their personalities. You see, her novels don’t depend on angst to make an impact on the reader, but instead her novels are about the ride, full delicious witty humor, and incredibly fleshed out characters.
