Review: The Party ~ a FREE Novella by Katie Ashley

Posted February 16, 2013 by Michelle in Book Reviews / 1 Comment


Title:  The Party (The Proposition #.05)
Author:  Katie Ashley
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Rating:  5 out of 5 Star

The Party is a FREE novella on Smashwords which author Katie Ashley has offered to her fans for their incredible support.  Having read The Proposition and The Proposal, I felt The Party really brought this series full circle for me and helped me understand Emma and Aidan’s personalities so much more.

In this novella we learn more about Emma and Aidan’s lives before their first encounter at the work Christmas party. My heart ached for Emma while listening to her desperate plea to Connor for him to be the sperm donor so should could have a baby. And although Aidan was always referred to as a manwhore, we really get to experience what a jerk he truly was/is.

If you haven’t read The Proposition and the sequel, The Proposal, I still advise you to read those first and come back The Party. I think you will appreciate The Party so much more if you read them in the order in which they were written. We’ll get to see more of Aidan and Emma this summer with The Pairing: A Companion Novel to The Proposition and The Proposal.

    Agree, Aidan was a cruel jerk and that incident with him in bed with Lydia; I was so mad at him. I now know that Emma’s influence on him made him a better man. Emma suffered so much I’m glad she finally has her happily ever after!
