Peek Inside The Playboy’s Proposal

Doctor Benny Sorensen has had it up to here with her party-throwing playboy neighbor. She’s declaring war.

But when his attractive but hotheaded neighbor creates trouble for him, Henry offers to help her land a date with the man of her dreams. Only as Henry makes her over and coaches her on the fine art of flirting, he realizes that the idea of this woman in any other man’s arms but his own is unacceptable.

Doctor Benny Sorensen has had it up to here with her party-throwing playboy neighbor. She’s declaring war. She doesn’t care how gorgeous or charming he is, he’s going down. That is until he proposes something she’s not sure she can say no to…

Wealthy ad man Henry Ellison lives an uncomplicated life that revolves around work, women, and partying. In that order. Until Benny storms into his life. To placate his attractive but hotheaded neighbor, Henry offers to help her land a date with the man of her dreams. Only as Henry makes her over and coaches her on the fine art of flirting, he realizes that the idea of this woman in any other man’s arms but his own is unacceptable.

But Benny’s a forever kind of girl and forever might just be the one commitment he can’t make.

The Playboy’s Proposal is the third story in the Sorensen Family series by Ashlee Mallory. It’s one of the few ‘sweet’ romance series that I read, and after reading the first story last year, I knew I’d be keeping an eye out for the next ones. The author writes with such an engaging style and with e ...more

The Playboy's Proposal was such a fun, entertaining and heartwarming read.

Loved Benny and Henry, they were both such charismatic characters.

First let me say that this series has been a delight to read!! It's been fun and entertaining since book 1 and it carried momentum thru book 3 :)

This is a great romantic and easy read.

You know the teen movie and book "The DUFF" ? That is what The Playboy's Proposal by Ashlee Mallory reminded me of .

Enjoyed this. Loved how Benny put Henry in his place from the very beginning. But hated how at times Henry didn’t think he was good enough for Benny and felt he was only temporary for me. That killed me to read.
Plot: fun and entertaining. I liked how Benny wasn’t someone Henry could plow over with c ...more

By Chessela October 21, 2018

Another great addition to the series. I really liked Benny in the first two books, and it's good to finally get to see more of her. There's a definite Pygmalion/My Fair Lady vibe to the story as Henry helps Benny to find her inner sexy woman. I liked Henry, and I thought he and Benny were cute toget ...more

This series has been redeemed! The storyline isn’t really new, but Benny and Henry are refreshing characters. Benny has started her new medical practice and moved into an upscale apartment. The one thing she didn’t factor into her new life is her obnoxious playboy neighbor who parties until dawn and ...more

I've had the pleasure of reading a few of this authors books and have honestly loved them all. She has a way of pulling you into her stories and entwining her characters into your psyche. I have laughed out load on so many occasions my husband thought I lost my mind.

In this book we have Benny a new ...more

By Isha July 23, 2016

Henry and Benny are fun. Some of the scenarios border on absurd but that adds to the charm of the romance. Benny at first meeting comes across uptight, stressed and high maintenance. In reality she's more down to earth. After devoting a great deal of time to her career, she just wants a chance to re ...more

By Ree July 10, 2016

This was a very fun romance to read. I had some "Lol" moments throughout, and other times the book just made me smile.

Benny & Henry are two individuals who, after getting off on the wrong foot with each other, realise the other is a great person to be around. After their rocky friendship looks as th ...more

**My thanks to NetGalley and Entangled Publishing LLC, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is a super cute read and perfect for those of you that like a clean romance as there is only a little kissing involved.

Both characters are well rounded and believable and have only sma ...more

I love the Sorensen family! This is Benny's story and I think she is my favorite of the siblings. You get to know her a little in Dominic and Cruz's books, but not much. She's smart, fun, and has a big heart, but has always been unsure of herself in relationships.

Of the three books in the series so far, this was my favorite. Playful, humorous, and a sexy playboy. All three have been fun to read though. I always love the stories of one party helping a second party gain the attention of the third party only to realize they aren't a match after all.

Violence: none

Sex: no sex, but descriptive kissing and they wake up together

I would suggest reading the other two Sorensen Family books in the series. ...more

The only thing I didn't like about this book was the fact that the proposal didn't actually happen on the pages. Only behind the scenes. If you are going to have a book called "The Playboy's Proposal"... I kind of expect to read about a romantic proposal at some point. ...more

Ashlee Mallory

Ashlee was thirteen when she snuck her first Kathleen E. Woodiwiss book hidden away in her mom’s closet. After two days of staying home “sick” from school to finish it, she was hooked. Her rabid love for romance has continued ever since, and after a misadventure in the world of law, she is finally settling into her dream job of writing about people finding their happily ever afters—the only stories worth reading, after all. Ashlee lives in the greater Salt Lake Valley in Utah with her sweetie, two fabulous kids, and a dog and cat that vie equally for her attention. Sometimes by sitting on her computer when she’s trying to work. And although surrounded by picturesque mountains and beautiful landscapes, she’s practically sallergic to direct sunlight, the outdoors, and anything that involves communing with nature. Give her a book, an abundance of coffee, and a shady (enclosed) spot with a view and she’s happy. Whether writing contemporary romances or romances with mystery and suspense, Ashlee aims to create down to earth heroines and heroes that will make you laugh and fall in love all over again.
