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 . . .
Cillian O’Malley and Olivia are two characters whose family is connected to the crime mob families in Boston and New York. They meet in a bar and have a very hot night in an alley when Cillian decides he wants more and more with her. Olivia doesn’t want to date anyone since she just wants to take care of her daughter, but her life brings a lot of complications to the mix. Ex- crazy boyfriends, evil brothers, and kidnapping are all thrown in when Cillian and Olivia begin dating. Cillian O’Malley is trying to turn over a new leaf after his brother was killed. I liked Cillian he tries to do right by his family and for Olivia and her daughter no matter the cost. He really steps up when she needs him and he’s very protective of the ones he loves. Olivia is a decent character too. I thought her whole trope was kind of played out, which it may just be the whole mob family thing, but I’m not super into her story. She was an average character who is trying to avoid bad men and take care of her daughter. An Indecent Proposal was alright, nothing amazing which kind of stunk since I really enjoy Katee Roberts books. This series just isn’t doing it for me a whole lot. That being said I didn’t dislike the book. It was decent. The characters all have depth and character, lots of suspense and sexy times. A very good read and good writing. Like I said I think the whole atmosphere of the mob stuff just doesn’t for it for me. Overall a three-star rating for this story. I think this is the last book in this series I will be reading. Thank you Netgalley and the publishers and Barclay for allowing me an early copy.
