The Pairing by Katie Ashley - Review


Published: Feb. 18, 2014

A Companion Novel to The Proposition and The Proposal

After her former boyfriend left her pregnant and alone, Megan McKenzie swore off men. She spent the last eighteen months focused solely on her son, Mason, along with finishing nursing school at the top of her class. Although she’s not ready to complicate her life with a long-term relationship, a nice no-strings attached hook-up is just what she needs. At her godson, Noah’s, baptism, she finds the perfect candidate in the soft-spoken godfather, Pesh Nadeen. After all, the widower could use a good time too. But after drinking too much, the night doesn’t end the way she thought it would. Forced to leave Pesh’s house through a walk of shame, Megan hopes to never, ever see him again. 

For Pesh Nadeen, the very sight of Megan sends him into an emotional tailspin. Since she reminds him too much of what he has lost, he wants to be out of her sight…at first. But the more he gets to know her, there's something about the diminutive blonde that causes his protective side to go into overdrive, and he finds himself wanting more. When Megan is assigned to work in his ER to complete her nursing clinicals, he sees it as fate, but she’s having no part of it. She only wants a physical relationship while he wants far more. 

What happens next is a sexy game of cat and mouse to see who will break first or if both of them will eventually get more than they ever bargained for.

Nikki's Review:
5 Stars!!
I'll admit, after reading The Proposal, I had my reservations about Pesh and The Pairing. I liked him but then again I didn't because I thought he was trying to take Emma away from Aidan.
I'm so glad that I decided to read The Pairing. We find out so much more about Dr. Pesh Nadeen and also more about Aidan's niece and Mason's mom, Megan.
Every time I think about this book, one word comes to mind every single time. Beautiful. Beautiful. It's just a beautiful story. Pesh is so much more than I ever expected. He's a true gentleman. He's sweet, thoughtful, kind, dominating in the bedroom. Just everything any woman could want in a man.
Megan is great too. She's a single mom working her way through college to give her son a better life. She's also a firecracker. But she's not looking for love because she's been hurt in the past. She finds herself immediately attracted to the good Dr. but what she doesn't count on is that he's not the hook-up, one night stand kind of guy. It really throws her off when he refuses to have a casual releationship. He's looking for love. She isn't. What follows is a unique story full of swoony romance, hot sex, and heart-felt love. Truly a story that should not be missed! Highly recommend!
