New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert continues her smoking-hot series about the O'Malleys-wealthy, powerful, and full of scandalous family secrets.
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 . . .


Olivia Rashidi knows how the workings of a crime boss family works and it has never worked out for her. But she managed the near impossible, leave and start a new life with her daughter. But she knows that her half brother isn’t going to give up easily, but she will do whatever it takes to keep her daughter safe and loved and away from the brutality of the family. Cillian O’Malley, is tortured by his past and the horror of losing the only carefree and innocent of all his siblings, because of him. Cillian blames himself for his brothers death. But there is a salvation for him…stubborn and willful Olivia. A waitress at a local bar he likes to visit while he nurses his glass of juice. Olivia wants to resist Cillian, but a turn of events forces them together and Olivia sees beneath the charismatic Cillian who hides many secrets and parts of himself. But her family doesn’t want her to have anything to do with the O’Malley family and they will take drastic measures to ensure it. But can Cillian protect them all from both of their families?

Plot and Story Line

My oh my…Katee Robert never disappoints and I was floored by this book!!! I love Cillian and quite heart breaking I found his character to be in many moments. He is one of the most tormented of the brothers. I took to their romance pretty quickly. I found Olivia so refreshing…she doesn’t cave to Cillian like most women do. He has to work and grovel for it! We see how their relationship quickly changes when Cillian gets injured! It changes quite quickly and I enjoyed seeing these two connect more and even though there are plenty of smexy times—this romance isn’t overshadowed at all by it. In fact, what I love about this author is how she balances out the story so well with the emotional intimacy that builds between these two. I did want to mention Olivia’s one year old daughter. She was so precious, and it was so fun to see her and Cillian together. My heart just melted whenever these two were together especially in the end there. We do get to see some more conflicts of the O’Malley Family. What was most interesting was the oldest brother. I honestly don’t know what to make of him, but we see something more from him in this story and I really really liked what I saw. I am very curious about how Robert will do his book. *nodding head* very very curious. This story is dramatic, exciting, dangerous and highly enthralling. definitely  a must for any gritty romance lover out there!!

The Cover

I just love all of these covers…but this one is my favorite so far. I love the pose—and its such a teaser at the hint of muscle we see hehe

Overall View

An Indecent Proposal is a story you can put yourself behind, a romance that takes your breath away and will you have you on the edge of your seat…truly wonderful!!

About The Author Updated

About Katee Robert

Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?

She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.

    I loved this one too! This series is Katee’s best, in my opinion. I loved the chemistry between Olivia and Cillian and i’m with you on Aiden. I’m not sure what to make of him either, but oh man. Katee has been sharing teasers from his book and I may already be in love with him! He is going to be smoking!
    I’m excited to see what she does with the next book too though I hate that we have to wait so long. :/
    Fab review!

      I had such a fun time with Olivia and Cillian. I can just imagine how fabulous Aiden’s book is going to be but what a LONG wait for the next book. I just don’t now if I can wait that long hehe

    Nice! I have yet to dig in to this series yet (I have book one on my Kindle) but I’ve loved Katee’s other work. It sounds like Olivia gives Cillian a run for his money! Gotta love that…LOL 🙂

    Never really seen these around before

    I have a friend who loves this author but haven’t yet tried her myself. Something else to add to the ever growing list of books I want.

  5. Lola

    I’ve heard good things about this author, but haven’t read any of her books myself. Sounds like a great romance with how Cillian has to work for Olivia her affection. I love ti when an author can balance the emotional depth with the sexy times.

  6. Rowena

    I am partial to romances with single mothers in them (since I am one) so I’m looking forward to this one. Thanks for the review. I appreciate the hell out of authors that can balance character development along with the romance without the story as a whole suffering so I’m definitely putting this on my list of books to read.
