I don't mean to be nasty, but I seriously think this book is way overrated. The plot is too simple and predictable. Aidan, in my opinion, is a coward and Emma is weak and pitiful. I could not relate to the characters or their relationship. It is one of those books in a series with an abrupt ending, that doesn't leave me wanting to read a sequence to it. So I guess, I'll pass on The Proposal since it's pretty obvious what it would be about and I'm sure I could fill all the gaps myself.
