Predictable. Boring. Safe.
That’s what life is supposed to be like. As the rightful heir to Waterfront Gardens, I would gladly refuse my inheritance. I don’t want the money. I sure don’t want to have anything to do with its dark past. Except for the letters of my deceased mother, I would be willing to cut losses and move on and give up my rich lifestyle. But my stepfather expects me to marry. And then there is my new fiancé.
My hot, fake fiancé.

Tall, handsome, mysterious.
That’s how Chase Wright is.
Unfortunately, he is not mine.
Unfortunately, too, the day I hired him, I signed an agreement.

When an innocent plan lands us engaged, none of us are prepared for the consequences. No one warned us that we could fall in love. Maybe The Agreement wasn’t such a good idea.

I should stay away from him and forget about our one night together.
Except he doesn’t want to….

In February I read An Indecent Proposal: The Interview, and was hooked! I wanted to know more about Laurie and Chase. An Indecent Proposal: The Agreement, continues immediately after the first book, so you would have to read the first to understand what is going on. It was an exciting and sizzling read with a few twists thrown in to keep you on your toes!

I learned a lot more about both Laurie and Chase. Laurie became more comfortable around Chase and found it hard to fight her attraction to him; the more time they spent together as well as his proposal didn’t help her keep him at arms length. She’s still determined to get her letters, but her stepfather Clint remains on her mind too.

I thought that Chase was really sweet in this instalment too, trying to make things as perfect as possible for Laurie. But there were times that he struggled; he’s definitely attracted to Laurie, but I can tell that he’s keeping secrets from her that can tear them apart. The relationship is difficult, but they both will benefit from the proposal.

Laurie’s past is still a bit of a mystery to me, and I’m hoping that we get all the answers in the next book. Laurie’s friend Jude remains at her side throughout everything, but I’m beginning to wonder if there’s more to her than what she portrays.

Although I didn’t get all the answers yet, Indecent Proposal: The Agreement was a captivating read. There were plenty of swoonworthy moments featuring Chase, but there were also a few twists that kept me thinking. The threat that occurred during the first book wasn’t a major factor in this book, but remains in the corner of my mind. J.C. Reed & Jackie S. Steele have continued to keep me hooked to the storyline and when I got to the final page I kept trying to flick the pages of my iPad for more, because that ending… Gah! I hope I don’t have to wait as long for the final book. Well done ladies!!
