Release Date: December 15th, 2015
Genre: Mature New Adult/Adult Contemporary Romance
Be advised: An Indecent Proposal: The Interview must be read BEFORE this installment. This is not a standalone series. If you haven’t read The Interview yet… why not?!? 😏
I’ll admit, it took a while for me to get invested in the story when I read the first book, The Interview but once I connected with the characters, I was all in… and then I was HOOKED once I read the prequal in The Arrangement. The authors give us a brief glimpse of Chase’s POV and I spent the whole time trying to figure out what his game plan was. Though, this book isn’t necessarily a “suspense”, that small sliver kept me in suspense the whole time. I was waiting for the other shoe to drop and just like the great authors they are, the story was delivered in a way that I’m left holding my breath and waiting at the edge of my seat for the final part of this story. (sneaky, sneaky 😉)
This whole story revolves around an arrangement Laurie made with Chase. She’s trying to get through a legal hurdle that is keeping her from the only thing her mother left her and Chase agrees to help her. Now when we meet Chase in the first book, he’s all gentlemanly and sweet; which he remains in this book, but little by little we get to see a little bit more of him and I’m certainly intrigued as to who he really is. Those small fragments shows us a more dominating, darker persona and I can’t wait to see more of him. I would certainly drop my panties for him.
Laurie is still the determined, headstrong girl we met in the beginning. However, she did tend to fell a bit wishy/washy, but I think it had a lot to do with her inner turmoil. She really wanted to stick to her guns and keep everything “businesslike”, but she’s almost a puddle of jello when she’s around Chase. I can’t blame her. Once he turns on the charm, I’m a puddle of goo as well.
The Agreement delivers much more character development for Laurie. We see her mature in many ways as she battles her needs, wants and desires when it comes to Chase Wright. This proposal ended up being much more than she bargained for and she has trouble sticking to her plans.
I’m soooo looking forward to the conclusion to this story. I need to know what’s in those letters, who is Chase Wright and what’s going to happen next?? I can’t wait!!
