The Offer by Karina Halle Review

271 pages
Published June 14th 2015

She thinks he's an arrogant playboy.
He thinks she's an uptight prude.
But he's about to make her an offer she can't refuse.

Nicola Price used to have it all – a great career, the perfect boyfriend, an excessive shoe collection and an apartment in one of San Francisco’s best neighborhoods. But when she gets knocked up and her asshat boyfriend leaves her high and dry, Nicola’s perfectly crafted world comes tumbling down. And stays that way.

Now, Nicola is the proud single mom to a five-year old daughter and living a giant lie. She can barely afford their ghetto apartment and all the men she dates run when they hear she comes with a child. She’s struggling and scared – and nowhere near where she thought she’d be at age thirty-one.

Her saving grace comes in the form of a tall, handsome and wealthy Scotsman Bram McGregor, the older brother of her friend Linden. Bram understands a thing or two about pride, so when tragic circumstances place Nicola at rock bottom, he offers them a place to live in the apartment complex he owns. It’s pretty much the perfect deal, so as long as she doesn’t mind living beside Bram, a man that, despite his generosity, seems to antagonize her at every turn.

But nothing in life is free and as Nicola gets her feet back on the ground, she discovers that the enigmatic playboy may end up costing her more than she thought.

She might just lose her heart.

Those McGregor brothers are nothing but trouble...

My Mini Review.

This story was BRAMTASTICCCCC....

I fell in love with Bram at the same pace Nicola did. At first I didn't think much of him. Can you blame me? Halle makes him out to be a complete "Manwhore" with and ego that can turn off any woman right off the bat.

But by the end of the novel I wanted to be the one married to Bram!!!! He's is literally the perfect package. I could relate to Nicola, she's guarded, strong and independent and Bram is everything she never knew she needed.

"Because, when you invite someone in and they leave, they take a part of you with them. It ruins the foundation. Don't you see? It's damaging when you pull the bricks out and the whole building collapses''

" I know you've been burned. But I've been burned too. Maybe our ashes can make something beautiful together"

I don't want to spoil the book by writing a full review because I think each and everyone of you needs to read this bad boy ASAP!!!!
