The Proposition, the second book in the contemporary romance sports series, the Players, from Elizabeth Hayley about a professional hockey player who hires a wedding date.
Professional hockey player Ben Williamson doesn't quite know how he got himself into this situation; hiring someone to be his date to his brother's wedding is way out of character for him. But with family pressuring him to settle down, going stag just isn't an option. It would just be one more thing his polite, cultured family uses as ammo against him.
Ryan Cruz is having a bad day. Wait, make that a bad year. Broke, technically homeless, and living on a friend's couch, she's now also unemployed after her sharp tongue gets her fired from her job. So when a handsome stranger approaches her out of the blue with a proposition--he’ll pay her to be his date to his brother’s wedding for the weekend--accepting his offer is a no brainer. She needs the cash and figures it wouldn't be in the best interest of a professional athlete to murder her.
What starts as a simple business arrangement soon becomes more as these opposites attract and get caught up in the wedding magic. Will Ben and Ryan be able to turn their relationship into something more? Or is love based on a proposition too much of an obstacle to overcome?
Cute and Fun Read
A quick paced read, The Proposition is the second book in a series of connected standalones.
Ben, a professional hockey player is in need of a date to his brother's wedding. His friends suggest hiring an escort, an idea Ben decides to run with. He meets Ryan, a woman who is not in a position to turn down that kind of money. From there the two get to know each other and then attend the wedding.
Ben and Ryan have a tight connection and the tension is palpable. The side characters add a bit of humor, and show us a different side of the The story flows well and kept my attention. I would recommend this to the reader looking for a diverse romance, that is well written and easy to read.
