Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and his need for Kat, his need to possess her at all costs, rivals only his single-minded goal of vengeance for the murder of his sister.

After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.

Synopsis from Goodreads
 
Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.

*********************************************


     The Proposition follows a woman named Kat. She loves baking. She loves it so much, she owns her own bakery. While at a wedding where her killer wedding cake is on display, her and the entire room's attention goes to one man who shows up. There is an instant connection that Kat tries her best to ignore. But fate has different plans when tragedy strikes that night and the mystery man, Sloane, comes to the rescue. As grateful as she is to Sloane, she still insists on fighting her attraction to him. But when someone from her past shows up and wants answers about a past tragedy, she knows she needs help and Sloane is just the man to help her.

     Well, this was one exciting read. It had everything I could want in a little over 100 pages. The story grabbed me instantly and didn't let up a bit. I love the build up. Something bad has happened in Kat's past, but she can't remember exactly what happened. But she has a disability now because of it. Her leg doesn't bend properly which causes her to limp all the time. Kat can't remember anything from that night, one person knows the truth. It is her douche of an ex-fiance David. He comes by to see what she remembers from that night while checking on her after the incident at the wedding. We get flashbacks of when they were together and David is not the greatest guy to say the least. We see some of Kat's fears come from him and what he has put her through. He is always putting her down and making her feel like she can't measure up. It gets worse after her permanent injury from that night. Her fears also come from her own family that treat her badly as well. They think that because she left the family business of working in science to become a baker is beneath them. She wants to be strong and be able to defended herself and not let her disability hold her back. Everyone treats her like a weakling. Sloane sees the fighter in her though and he will help her bring that fighter out. Both mentally and physically.

     Kat was a favorite for me. She is a character that is very easy to relate to. She is constantly being put down by those around her except for a handful of people. She was quite the fighter even though she felt like she failed. I love that she just doesn't want to anyone fighting for her, not even Sloane. She wants to be able to stand on her own two feet. I love that Sloane brings that out in her. I love that he makes sure she knows she is in control. Whatever she wants, he will do it for her. I loved Sloane. He is an ex-fighter who is now a multibillionaire due to the gyms he has built. He has his own demons and we get a bit of that in this book. I can't wait to get the whole picture. I have a feeling I will need tissues for this.

     This was a great read. Easily making it on my favorites reads of 2013. It is short, but very suspenseful and engaging. Lyon has done such a great job building this mystery. I am dying to start the sequel, Possession, especially with that cliffhanger. This book is so much more than just a romance. It is a story of getting past your fears and demons. I am officially in love with this series and I can't wait for more. Highly recommended.
