The Proposition

The Proposition: The Ferro Family (The Proposition #1)

by H. M. Ward



Blackmail. Sex. Ferro.

His dark hair, bright eyes, and cocky grin look just the way I remembered. The last time I saw Bryan’s Ferro’s beautiful body, he was naked and shimmering with sweat. This time he’s wearing a tux and a wicked smirk that makes my heart beat too fast. It’s been so long since I’ve seen him, the moment feels supercharged.

But, the words that fall out of his mouth aren’t what I expect and shock me to the core. They aren’t light and pleasant, like ex-lovers who decided to part ways. His tone is clipped, and if his jaw locked any tighter, it would crack. He doesn’t care about my personal life, my recent loss, or my boyfriend.

Bryan makes his intentions clear—if I don’t sleep with him, he’ll ruin me.

This story unfolds over 5 volumes approx. 125 pages each.



3.5 out of 5 stars

This story has an emotional start and I was pulled in immediately. Hallie Raymond is a great character with a troubled past. I liked her boyfriend Neil in the beginning but my opinion of him plummeted throughout. The moment Hallie and Bryan Ferro reconnect is entertaining, I enjoyed their fun and feisty sparring. As things unfold you can feel the tension of Hallie and Bryan’s past. They seem to have an angry attraction with a build up of frustration, which translates into an interesting hot scene at the end.

I got a pretty good feel for who Hallie was but I wish more details of Bryan would have been shared. By the end, I had a ton of questions and was wanting more (and yes, there is a cliffhanger). This is book one of five in a series so I wasn’t surprised by this, I thought it laid a really good foundation. I’m a fan of H. M. Ward and am familiar with her style of writing so I know all my questions will get answered eventually. 

Fast paced story with a nice build. Great, solid start to the series. I’m excited to see where the story goes next!
