An Indecent Proposal (The O’Malleys #3) by Katee Robert
Greed. Ambition. Violence. Those are the "values" Olivia Rashidi learned from her Russian mob family-and the values she must leave behind for the sake of her daughter. When she meets Cillian O'Malley, she recognizes the red flag of his family name…yet she still can't stop herself from seeing the smoldering, tortured man. To save her family, Olivia sets out to discover Cillian's own secrets, but the real revelation is how fast—and how hard—she's falling for him.
Plagued by a violent past, Cillian is more vulnerable than anyone realizes. Anyone except Olivia, whose beauty, compassion, and pride have him at "hello," even if she's more inclined to say good-bye to an O'Malley. While his proposal of sex with no strings seems simple, what he feels for her isn't, especially after he learns that she belongs to a rival crime family. Cillian knows that there is no escape from the life, but Olivia may be worth trying—and dying—for.
Cillian and Sloan’s story was fantastic. Excellent addition to the series. Loved it!
There were so many different dynamics at play and they were all woven together perfectly. So much conflict, tension, a lot of different layers, and multiple POV's happening. This was a full, intriguing story that had me turning the page like a mad woman.
I really liked Cillian and Sloan. Cillian was fighting demons from his past and trying to move on. It's was almost like he was stuck, wanting to break free. He is just so much more than is seen and I just wanted to hug him. He could be so sweet and sincere. And then there's Olivia, running from a past she can't really run from but staying strong and doing everything she can and the people she loves. There is a lot of tension as they meet but sparks are seriously flying and I love that oil and water dynamic they have in the beginning before they really start to get to know each other. I loved Cillian and Sloan’s barriers breaking down, owning up to past mistakes, and coming to trust one another. It was awesome. There were so may sweet and vulnerable moments but also a lot of heated ones. And there’s a nice amount of heat for sure.
They live in a crazy, intense world where there are lots of power plays happening. It's got a very Sopranos-esq feel to it. The O'Malley heirs face so many struggles in this elaborate world. I love that it's from multiple POV's. There are several people we hear from but the overturn isn't quick, so it isn't confusing and I think it really added a lot to the story to get the different views.
There was a nice amount of intensity and drama in this. The writing was great, I was totally pulled in. It was very much a page turner for me. That ending, I was seriously on the edge of my seat. There is a nice amount of detail throughout. It’s intense, a bit of violent, and I feel like it's unique. We have our love interests of course and there is an HEA but with the crazy world they live on, there's just so much more at play. I'm complete hooked.
This is such great series. Bring on the next book!
