Outrageous Proposal by Sienna Valentine
I just finished reading my 3rd story by Sienna Valentine, all three have been quite different and with each from the first page I couldn’t not only put it down, but wait to turn the page! I enjoy how seamlessly the stories flow together. The only similarities between them are having both characters points of view and being an HEB. This is the first that is a standalone without another standalone story to go along with it, but how could you go wrong writing about life in paradise!
Harrison lives and runs one of his father’s resorts in Bali. This one in particular the guest are ready and willing for uninhibited and unattached hedonism. Harrison has taken many liberties in this himself, and allows his employees to as well, as long as they’re not on duty. Harrison’s father wants him to settle down, get married and start a family before he’ll pass on the reigns of his empire to his only child, Harrison completely not only despises but rebels against his father’s demands. Unfortunately one night while enjoying yet another guest and drinking Sambuca, which always made him do stupid things! Including drunkedly emailing his father that’d he’d found his future wife, and she has shown him the kind of future he wants. But Harrison doesn’t remember sending it and now his father and mother are coming to meet his fiancé, that he doesn’t have. Now he has to figure out a plan of action! And fast!
Clarice is on vacation from New York to Bali with her three best friends, only they’ve kept her out of the entire planning process of the trip. She has no idea what the extra private resort is about, they’re trying to get their friend back and out of the funk she’s been in following a break-up with her ex. They all needed to recharge their batteries, only Clarice doesn’t know the full extent of the girls’ plans to get her to release some of her tension she’s bottled up. But it was too much for Clarice when she found out what the resort is about, she didn’t know if she could b as free as the other three. However she promised she’d do her best to relax and have a good time, even though she feared she’d disappoint them.
Harrison and his best friend Bruce tried to come up with a plan to help him out of the mess he’d made with his father. They made a list of qualities this woman would have to have to impress his father. After being shut down by every female on the island, Harrison knew he’d met the perfect woman lost in the halls today. Clarice, now he just had to convince her. While she was having dinner with her friends, he sauntered to the table and asked if he could speak to her alone. They walked out onto the beach where he laid it all out on the line for her. He gave her a beautiful engagement ring as down payment no matter what she decided. He promised he could show her a different experience since she wasn’t really interested in what the resort had to offer, she told him she had to think about it. Harrison’s parents were due in the next day, which meant he didn’t sleep well that night. He was on his way to find her when she came to find him. She decided to take him up on his offer of an adventure. How does it turn out? Are they able to pull off the ruse for his parents, or does it backfire on Harrison, or even both of them? You’ll have to read Outrageous Proposal to find out, but I’m glad I did. It was an intense but fun story to read. I smiled, laughed, and even shed some tears- sad or happy you’ll have to find out on your own! I give Sienna 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 for this story, and if she had more written around the Bali island I’d read them. Due to sexual situations, this book is recommended for readers 17 and older.
FAVORITE QUOTES: “I get it, but you’re my only hope, Obi Wan.” “At least the girls can’t tell me I didn’t try something new and adventurous on the trip this way,” I don’t know why I would turn down a shower of luxury.
