    One thought on “The Proposal”

    1. I can't remember how I stumbled across this book, probably a suggestion, but after reading the synopsis, I thought "why not." I basically went in to this with no expectations, but even that earned this book only about 3.5 stars from me. I was good, but it lacked quite a few things. Firstly, I had a hard time buying into the emotions of the characters. The narrator claimed how characters felt for each other another, but I just didn't see it or feel it for myself. Mack's attraction toward Tully, f [...]

    2. 2.5 - 3 starsWarning contains mild spoilersWell this was ok but to be honest both of these characters got on my nerves. I understood why Mack didn’t want to love again but really it got a bit irritating him not owing up to how he felt and pushing Tully away all the time. Also I really didn’t like what he did on the honeymoon, yes I know it wasn’t a real marriage but even so he could have spent time with her. It would have been a good time to bond before going home to Cody but instead he pa [...]

    3. Ehhh, ok.Not a horrible book but not great either. Just another predictable romance, the flow of the book felt stiff to me also.

    4. I don't always put a lot of stock in what others say about a book or movie because ultimately the decision is yours based on the synopsis whether or not you read a book.The title and synopsis for The Proposal caught my eye so I decided to give it a read. I'm glad I did. In the real world Mack and Tully never would have met. How many real-life "Cinderella"-type stories have you ever read about? BUT in this work of fiction they did meet by chance. He's a wealthy man and she wants to one day be a w [...]

    5. Clean contemporary romance with two damaged but essentially kind people that find a second chance at love after they raise the little Cody together. There is no christian themes, the author just keeps the bedroom door closed although these folks are being sexually active.Tully is grieving so she can be excused from the crazy fake marriage that Mack proposes because she finally feels something, she feels love for Mack's little boy Cody. So of course love makes more love and their fake family star [...]

When Tully and Cody bond over a sandcastle in the park, Mack impulsively offers her an unorthodox business proposition: a contract marriage with Cody at the center.

    8. Held my attentionI liked the characters and the story but I didn't feel the love the characters had for each other, nor their friendship with others. Would have liked to have seen more building. The climax kidnapping believable some what but good job overall. I would read more from this author.

    9. oh my this book in great!!!well written, great characters, awesome story that flows smoothlyMs Silver, how you came up with this unusual marriage, and the interesting details for the pre-nup, genius!!

    10. This is a suspenseful love story that was hard to put down. It has an original plot that I found myself thinking about while I was away from the book. The characters were well-developed and intriguing. Fast-paced and enjoyable read. Highly recommend!

    11. Love happensSweet story of heartache, and loss and what can happen when you least expect it. Plenty of drama, and thrill. Visit many places in just a few pages. Very happy I bought this book!!! It is definitely a good read.

    12. I received this book free via . What a great story! I started and finished it in about 24 hours. It definitely sucked me in right from the start.

    13. This was a very well crafted story. It was a beautiful story with a lot to say about about trust and forgiveness.

    14. Not your typical marriage. The story is full of so many twists and turns that I fell asleep with my kindle because I couldn't put it down.

    15. This story was ok but seemed to drag out a lot and had a lot of fine details that i didn't feel needed to be added ie the type of wine, clothes names and describing everything in great detail

    16. Trustthe storyline was good. I would have liked more sex. I was good to see Mack's character emerge through trust in love.

    17. Very enjoyable book to read, the love story was unusual from the marriage contract to the end. Love and trust are great lessons learned the hard way!
