REVIEW: The Offer by Karina Halle

The Offer, just like The Pact, gives us NA readers something a little different than the typical college/post college romance and I'm so grateful. If you read The Pact, then you'll recognize Nicole and Bram; if you haven't read The Pact, Nicole is a single mom and Bram is known as a playboy. As you might suspect, neither of them are looking for the other and most people might not put them together but they totally work. 

We get to know a Nicola who has the best RBF and tough exterior from years of having to suck up the tough stuff and just move on with life. I identified a lot with Nicola and her way of handling things and liked that Halle made her so believable. I also liked that she created a Bram who was someone easy to like (despite a few douchey moments) and that he seemed so genuine and kind hearted...though the drama he created was just soooooo wrong and though I hated how it impacted Nicola, I liked that he had to feel the consequences. 

Out of the series I've read of Halle's this one may be the closest to being formulaic but she freshens it up with the age of her characters, the struggles they deal with, and how they find their connection. It was never a question of if there would be angst, but when. Never a question of if they would hook up and make things work, but how. And if the next McGregor is anything like the first two, it won't be a question of how filthy his mouth is but how soon we hear it. (If you like a dirty talking man, this series is a definite must). 

I'm enjoying this series. It's lighter, funnier, in some ways a little shallow, but a perfect read for a weekend. I'm very much looking forward to the next book in the series, The Play.

**yet another review that got lost in our drafts's old but still good!



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 a**hat 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...
