Hello lovelies! Please bear with me while I make the transition back from WordPress to Blogger. I need to go through and insert images and do some more tweaks.

ScarlettReader's Review of Indecent Proposal (Boys of Bishop #4) by Molly O'Keefe

Indecent Proposal is the fourth book of Molly O’Keefe’s Boys of Bishop series. I haven’t read any of the other Bishop books so this story works as a stand-alone, but I loved these characters and Ms. O’Keefe’s writing style so much that I plan to immediately read the rest of the series! I’m hooked!!

In this story, a one night stand turns into a pregnancy which leads to a relationship between two beautifully damaged people from opposite sides of the track. Ryan is a struggling model turned bartender and meets “Harry” while serving drinks to him during a very stressful time in his life. Sparks fly between them and they end up between the sheets in his hotel room. Even though Ryan knows this is a one-time fling and doesn’t even know his full name, she still loses a piece of her heart to him.

Harry turns out to be political-hopeful Harrison Montgomery from a very politically powerful family. Harrison has been groomed for public office since he was born and is in the middle of a very tight congressional race. Harrison’s life has lacked love and honesty, and for the first time he finds in Ryan a woman who likes him and not his name or political connections.

During the story we see how these two find themselves in each other. Ms. O’Keefe’s storytelling made my heart care for Ryan and Harrison and kept me turning the pages until the end.

The secondary characters were a wonderful addition and full of surprises. I loved watching Ryan take on her witchy mother-in-law and later confronting her own family whom she had not seen in a number of years. By the end of the book, it was obvious Ryan had grown tremendously and really came into her own. The only disappointment for me was the lack of story wrap-up between Ryan and her dad. I wish Ms. O’Keefe had given more attention to that relationship, but maybe she will bring them up again in a future Bishop book.
