A Companion Novel to The Proposition and The Proposal

After her former boyfriend left her pregnant and alone, Megan McKenzie swore off men. She spent the last eighteen months focused solely on her son, Mason, along with finishing nursing school at the top of her class. Although she’s not ready to complicate her life with a long-term relationship, a nice no-strings attached hook-up is just what she needs. At her godson, Noah’s, baptism, she finds the perfect candidate in the soft-spoken godfather, Pesh Nadeen. After all, the widower could use a good time too. But after drinking too much, the night doesn’t end the way she thought it would. Forced to leave Pesh’s house through a walk of shame, Megan hopes to never, ever see him again.

For Pesh Nadeen, the very sight of Megan sends him into an emotional tailspin. Since she reminds him too much of what he has lost, he wants to be out of her sight…at first. But the more he gets to know her, there’s something about the diminutive blonde that causes his protective side to go into overdrive, and he finds himself wanting more. When Megan is assigned to work in his ER to complete her nursing clinicals, he sees it as fate, but she’s having no part of it. She only wants a physical relationship while he wants far more.

What happens next is a sexy game of cat and mouse to see who will break first or if both of them will eventually get more than they ever bargained for.

The Proposition series was amazing!!! I swooned over Aiden in all 3 books but I was so excited when I found out The Pairing was going to be about Pesh. Katie Ashley did a great job at making sure her readers didn’t miss Aiden and Emma in this book even though it was about 2 other characters. In my eyes this is a very hard thing to do. To balance the old main characters into a new book where they are no longer the leading role. Katie nailed it and made it flow so well!

Pesh the handsome doctor who was very respectful but you just knew he had a dirty side to him! Oh and in this book it comes out! Pesh is a widow and we find this out in the 2nd book and it just broke my heart. He is so devastated about his late wife that he hasn’t been able to move on even after 2 years when everyone is telling him that it is time for him to find a girlfriend, to  find someone to love. Megan, Aiden’s niece wanted to be a doctor but life gave her a different course when she got pregnant young and decided to focus on her son. She didn’t give up her dream she just took the next best thing and became a nurse. Megan did not want a relationship and Pesh did. These two did not know their lives were going to cross with being Noah’s God parents (Aiden & Emma’s son) and the attraction was instant. Pesh wanted to act on it badly and Megan kept denying her feelings. Pesh was wonderful and wanted to respect Megan’s wishes but sometimes you have to play dirty and man oh man was it a turn on when this respectful man became determined and was willing to do what he had to do to win Megan’s heart!

I will admit that I was swooning bad over Aiden and Pesh took his spot in the Pairing! Read this story and find out if Pesh gets into Megan’s heart or not.  Will he win her over? I give this book 5 stars!
