Series: The Plus One Chronicles #1
I am very impressed with this new to me author. She gave a perfect blend of romance, suspense and quite bit of steam factor. She literally had me hooked from the first page and kept me intrigued until the very last page.” ~Under the Covers Book Blog
The Proposition is an exhilarating start to The Plus One Chronicles series. Ms. Lyon wrote a story of two people who has had a difficult past and though they survived, both have not fully healed. Finding each other has just given them an opportunity to move forward and maybe giving themselves a chance at happiness.
Kat Thayne had learned to keep herself safe by avoiding crowds. She has found comfort in baking and keeping herself out of any prying eyes. Who can blame her? She was brutally mugged six years ago and again finds herself defenseless to another attack. Luckily, Sloane Michaels, ex-UFC fighter happens to interrupts and saves her. Sloane, the alpha male that he is, feels the need to claim her *cough* I mean protect her… from then on, he just can’t stay away.
Right from the beginning, you know that Kat had great fears due to her past. She was determined to live her life in seclusion but when the opportunity came, she was more than willing to move on. I was intrigued on how Ms. Lyon was going to break her out of that shell. Ultimately, she had given her a powerful tool…Sloane.
Let me tell you, watching Sloane give her that power back was exhilarating and inspiring. And I have to say, sexy as hell! Oh yes, There were several panty-dropping scenes that just leave you with no choice but swoon over this bad boy. He’s a hot billionaire UFC fighter for God sakes. As soon as the first scene where he takes off his shirt (to save Kat from muggers), I knew he belonged to my book-boyfriend-list. He is sexy, strong, possessive, protective, rich, determined and every other cliché you can think of that an alpha male can possess. Sloane Michaels is an alpha male personified and I love him!!!
I am very impressed with this new to me author. She gave a perfect blend of romance, suspense and quite bit of steam factor. She literally had me hooked from the first page and kept me intrigued until the very last page. I do have to mention that there is a bit of cliffhanger at the end. There will be unfinished business that will need taking care of and I cannot wait what Ms. Lyon has installed for Kat and Sloane.
Ms. Lyon knows what she is doing. She is not a newbie by a long shot. Having written several PNR and Mystery books under her belt which I totally plan to explore. Her work will definitely be an auto buy for me from here on. Speaking of which, The Possession (The Plus One Chronicles #2) will be out soon and THAT installment I expect to be good if not better.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
