With her thirtieth birthday looming, Emma Harrison finds her biological clock clanging and the elusive knight in shining armor yet to appear. She’s running out of options, especially after her gay best friend backs out from being her sperm donor. Of course, there’s always a sperm bank, but Emma fears a donor mix-up might impregnate her with the spawn of Satan.
Resident company womanizer, Aidan Fitzgerald, is used to always getting what he wants, especially in the bedroom. When Emma spurns his advances at the company Christmas party, he’s determined to have her no matter what it takes. After Aidan learns of Emma’s predicament, he is quick to offer a proposition that will benefit them both. He will father Emma’s child, but she must conceive it with him naturally. Not one for hook-ups or casual sex, Emma is reluctant to take him up on his offer, but his charm, coupled with her intense desire for motherhood, wins out.
Soon their baby-making sessions become more than just physical. Aidan can’t seem to walk away from her while Emma begins to wonder if Aidan could be the one. But can Aidan leave his past behind to become the man Emma needs him to be?

Independent, smart, strong willed Emma is almost 30 and wants nothing more than to have a baby of her own but after her gay best friend backs out of helping her and with her mistrust of sperm banks she feels like her dream of motherhood will never happen (I have that same feeling)
The writing was great, the characters were fantastic and not just our main ones, Emma’s best friends Casey and Connor were the ultimate best friends! Emma & Aiden’s chemistry was undeniable, and honestly I don’t know how they didn’t ignite the sheets when they were baby making, they were THAT hot! I really liked getting to see the two of them attempt a real relationship until Aiden (who likens marriage & fatherhood to being choked) pulls the douchebaggiest of moves which had me yelling and my heart pounding anxious of what was going to happen between him and Emma and then Katie had to go and end it…final…the end.
She left tooooo much story and not enough pages!
But I guess that’s a good thing because there’s a sequel in the works. The Proposal is due in January and I will DEFINITELY be getting that. I NEED it. I WANT it. I gotta HAVE it. I need to know how my Emma, Aiden and baby end up
The Proposition gets a solid
