    3.5 hot hockey stars

    Light emotional romantic family drama following professional hockey player Ben Williamson who finds himself needing an escort to his brother's wedding. Ben and his two best friends find themselves at a seedy strip club, where according to his friends, escorts are available for hire. Ryan Cruz, down on her luck and having recently lost her job as a waitress is in the right place at the right time, and when Ben propositions her to go to the wedding with her, she has nothing to lose by going along with his ruse. Except possibly her heart, but for some reason that never enters her head, not even when their business agreement becomes way more than it should. Lovely writing, easygoing characters, although for some reason I can't quite put my finger on, Ryan annoyed me at times, maybe it was her unwillingness to let go, I don't know. She was strong and a fighter, there is no doubt about that. Ben on the other hand was hot, sexy and I loved his flaws. I can't complain about their sexual chemistry, that was hot hot hot. Overall, a light easy enjoyable read. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The Proposition by Elizabeth Hayley

    Hockey star, Ben Williamson, hires Ryan Cruz to attend his brother’s wedding with him. The more the couple gets to know each other the less sure either one is of keeping their relationship strictly professional. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences. When I stared to read this book, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. I enjoyed the story more and more the further I got into the novel. I like Ben. He is in an interesting situation with his family. It is understandable why he did not want to go to his brother’s wedding alone. Ryan is a strong heroine. I respect that despite her difficult past, she has upstanding morals. I appreciate Ben’s friends Gabe and Jace. I think it’s great that they met in college and are professional athletes in different sports. Ben and Ryan grew for the better throughout the story. They discovered things about themselves and made each other better people. I like that things are cleared up between Ben and his family. This is the first book that I have read by Elizabeth Hayley. I enjoyed the writing duo’s style. The ending was a good transition for Gabe’s story. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Great story

    I am a HUGE fan of Elizabeth Hayley’s writing and The Proposition is yet another great reason why I love their books!!!! I loved how Ben and Ryan began their “relationship”, the premise of it was perfectly done. My heart shattered for Ryan when secrets were revealed. This is the second book in the series but I believe can be read as a stand-alone. Reviewed by: Dana D.

    3 Solid Stars

    I am a big fan of this author duo and was looking forward to reading this book by them. Not to mention pretend couple is one of my favorite tropes. I really liked Ben. He was just a little too nice and a little naive. It wasn’t really explained that he was kind of shy until late in the book so it was a little weird to me. I really liked Ryan too. She is a survivor. I really liked her as a person. On the surface and in the story, Ben and Ryan are a couple that I could really see together. Just something was missing in this book for me. It didn’t have the usually Elizabeth Hayley spark I like. I did like the conflict and resolution to this story, even with Ben and his brother though I think David is a douche. I was really engaged in the story but it was just missing something for me. I still think this was a good book and would recommend it to a friend.
