Review : An Indecent Proposal by Katee Robert

***ARC Provided by the Author for an Honest Review***

I don’t know where to start with this book – An Indecent Proposal by Katee Robert was amazing!
This is a story about Olivia Rashidi, who is part of the Romanov family, a Russian mob family in New York, and Cillian O’Malley, who is also part of a mob family based in Boston.
When Olivia escaped New York, she fled her violent ex, and her half-brother, taking her baby daughter to Boston, where she now works as a bartender. Olivia’s mother was the mistress, thus never really allowing her daughter to fit in with the other Romanov’s. Well, that was until Olivia’s father was dying and he had a change of heart.

Cillian O’Malley was a playboy, a man who enjoyed alcohol, women and life. He is a man who loves dressing in his three piece suits, but he’s also a man who carries a lot of guilt over the death of his younger brother. There’s a lot of pain and suffering going on within this man and he is now only a shadow of his former self.

When he meets Olivia he is smitten. Originally Olivia resisted Cillian’s charms, but eventually he gets under her skin and she can’t fight how he makes her feel. The chemistry between them is magnetic and hot.

When her half-brother Dmitri and her ex Sergei come looking for her to fulfil her dead fathers wish, she puts hers, and her daughters trust in Cillian’s hands to protect them.

I loved how the plot played out and how it branches out to include other members of the O’Malley family. It draws you in because you want to know more about that direction taken, that Katee only just brushes over in Olivia and Cillian’s story.

There is also more going on behind the scene involving both the Romanov and O’Malley families that delves into the underhanded dealings within the criminal community.

This is a four star read for me
