THE PAIRING by Katie Ashley

Posted: April 27, 2014 by BA Dillon in BOYS are just BETTER in BOOKS (Romance and Indie Authors)



Katie Ashley has done it again! If you’re a fan of The Proposition and The Proposal, then you’ll love this story as well. This one has no angst or broken hearts – only pure romance at its best! We were first introduced to Pesh in The Proposal as he pursued a relationship with Emma. Learning quickly that were only meant to be friends, Pesh quickly became a hero when he saved the day getting Aidan back to Emma in time to witness the birth of his son. In The Pairing, Emma has asked Pesh to be the baby’s godparent. At the baptism, he spends a great deal of time with Megan – the other godparent. We met Megan in The Proposition. Megan is Aidan’s niece, a young unmarried mother of a toddler. Megan has moved back home in order to finish nursing school and is assigned to Pesh’s ER to complete her clinical rotation. What develops is a friendship paired with mutual respect. Megan has experienced two failed relationships while Pesh lost is first true love to cancer. Pesh has some old-fashioned ways and works his honest magic on both Megan and her son. What I loved was the entire Fitzgerald clan was back in full force, and it was great to catch up with Aidan and Emma. As always, Aidan brings nothing but humor to the story! And … Surpise! There is even a little crossover from Beat of the Heart! As always, Katie Ashley delivers a superb dialogue-driven story with crew of fabulous supporting characters, and a storyline that keeps the reader wanting more. I thought a twist or two was needed to spice up their romance, but in the end the HEA was beautiful ending. However, I also believe the epilogue moved way too fast and the lack of any conflict made the overall story slightly dull. Not as great as The Proposition, but a fun, quick read. If you’re looking for a solid romance with very little angst – this is the book for you!
