    1. 2.5 StarsA short story leading up to the first book in this series, The Proposition. I was very much enjoying this until near the end when Emma's behavior revealed a very selfish and childish heroine. This being a novella, I'm hoping the next installment will bring a more mature, likable character.


    2. 3 1/2 Fitzgerald StarsFree on Smashwords:smashwords/books/view/The Party is a short read that begins in the present day with Emma and Aidan and slowly weaves in and out of the scenes that lead to the The Proposition. Scenes likeAidan attending his godson's christening and Emma and friends celebrating Travis' life at an annual get together. We are also treated to the Aidan and Emma's first meeting at the office party where Emma is wearing the infamous green dress.[image error]"Oh, I think you hea [...]


    3. This was a really short, quick read. If it is read before The Proposition, then its a quick introduction to the characters in the series. If read after though, its just an added bonus.This book is split into two parts:~NOW: It shows the characters' (Aidan and Emma) life in the present time. I didn't expect for the book to have this in and I actually regret reading this little story at the start of the series. I felt like it was ruining what is to come in the series. It doesn't tell you much but [...]


    4. This is a cute little addition to the story of Aidan and Emma.It starts after the events of The Proposal (book 2 in the series, so make sure you read that first to avoid spoilers), with a quick glimpse into their life - Aidan and Emma preparing to go to their work Christmas function. This triggers their memories back to the Christmas party two years ago when they first met and Emma shot Aidan down, unwilling to have anything to do with the company player. Not that I blame her, he's pretty slutty [...]


    5. I'm not sure why this novella is label 0.5 instead of 2.5. I actually had a hard time decided which sequence to read. But after reading AJ's review, I decided to read this last.The first chapter seems like an epilogue to The Proposal, with Emma getting herself ready for Aidan's company Christmas party, while Aidan is at home with baby Noah. Then we are treated to the flashback two years ago before the party that Emma publicly rejected Aidan's pursue. Emma is having a reunion with Casey, Nate and [...]



    6. I just can't get enough of Emma and Aidan. EVER. What a great gift from Katie Ashley, an insight to that fateful night at the company Christmas Party. Even though Aidan come across as a major d-bag manwhore, you can help but just love him!Who knew when Emma told him that he 'was the last man she would ever sleep with' she would be right? I just love it!


    7. Love Love Love! It puts a lot of the pieces into place for the Proposition and the Proposal. Don't forget you can get it free on Smashwords!smashwords/books/view/


    8. 3.5 stars" we need to toast the day you told off Mr. Aidan Manwhore Fitzgerald."Can I just say how happy I am that the Aidan in this book is not the same Aidan as the others, he was a freakin douchebagIt was a cute super short back story of how it all started."I guess we owe everything to one party, huh?"


    9. What an *AWESOME* little read! I seriously was expecting a weak story since it's only 43 pages, but whoa, I really, really enjoyed this and made me like Aiden & Emma all the more. You can read this before starting the series or after, doesn't matter. BUT WARNING-- it does begin with present day Aiden & Emma and their current 'situation' which is a *spoiler* if you want to start reading the series. FYI.I read this last and I loved it in that order because it brought me full circle-back to [...]


    10. Read more reviews on my blog | Like me on FacebookThe Party by Katie Ashley is an adorable short read for those who love Emma and Aidan as much as I do. This was a wonderful surprise for me to find that their story continued, even if it was just an hour worth of reading, it was an hour of bliss :)The Party you can read before you read The Proposal or after like I did. It is glimpses of both Emma and Aidan's life before meeting one another as well as the night they met. It is done in both charact [...]


    11. Me likey! More Aidan and Emma? Yes, please! Katie Ashley is one of my favorite authors! I love it when the author releases little snippets of events that happened in the original. I love the cover, too. Looks like she just finished knocking him upside the head, which his cocky azz deserved.On a side note, is it possible to heart a character that has passed away years ago wasn't even a main character? I think I heart Travis!


    12. I really dont want to rate this since it was free but if I did, I would rate it a 2, since it's not a story in of itself. Just a prologue . . . . with a prologue. I read the main book - The Proposition - before I read this and I wouldnt have missed anything if I had never read it.



    13. 4 StarsWhat a cute addition to the series. After reading this novella I wanted to re-read the series :-)


    14. I enjoy reading novellas, and as far as novellas go The Party is a pretty good one! It is a prequel to The Proposition that features the company Christmas party scene where Aidan first sees Emma.What I loved:-that there was a build up leading up to the party-we get to witness Aidan's manwhore-ish ways (what a player he is!)-the sweet conversation with Aidan and Megan-how supportive and close knit Emma's friends are-Emma asking Connor that important question-how it shows Emma's great desire to ha [...]


    15. I just loved this series. The Proposition/The Proposal. How can you not fall in love with Mr. Aidan "Manwhore" Fitzgerald?


    16. you made my VALENTINES DAY! and i love you to death KATIE ASHLEY! <3AND OOOOPPPS, i want more AIDAN and EMMA moments! more and more and more! :)


    17. I loved this little novella it makes me want to go back and read the other 2 books now Hmmm so I might just do that!! Thank You Katie Ashley i love your work!! :)




    18. Loved this prequel *.* and getting to know more about their background story.These two were so meant to be :)




    19. 3.5 starsAlthough The Party is technically a prequel to The Proposition I took the advice of other reviewers and read it after the rest of the series which I think was probably for the best. Although I do think you could read this first if you want to get an idea of Katie Ashley's writing style I think I enjoyed it more because I'm already invested in the characters. If this is your first encounter with the couple you probably won't end up with the best impression of Aidan but trust me he will [...]


    20. For more reviews like this check out my blog, Blame it on the RainPicking up where The Proposal left off, this short story consists of a flashback to the party which is mentioned in The Proposition, where Emma and Aidan first met.Clearly showing just how much the two characters have changed since the party two years ago, even from the preface to chapter 1, you can tell a clear difference in their personalities.Aidan, is of course whoring around with any woman who takes his fancy. Convinced that [...]


    21. I read THE PARTY first because on GR, it says that it is the prequel. Yeah, no.I felt a little lost as to what was going on. I would suggest reading this short after the series, just as something extra to read. This is Aiden and Emma’s story, but it’s just really glimpses here and there. Nothing that really forms a whole story so I definitely believe it’s best to read THE PROPOSITION and THE PROPOSAL first.As this is my first Katie Ashley book, I’ll give you my first impression rundown:I [...]


    22. This is a short novelette that precedes what happens in The Proposition and The Proposal. It starts off, though, with a short picture of what is currently happening (after the Proposal ends). It then jumps into roughly 3 months before the Proposition starts and alternatives between Aidan and Emma's viewpoints. This is a wonderful, short read for fans of the series because it gives a little insight and background into what our favorite characters were doing before we first see them. If you haven' [...]


    23. "The Party" was a great insight into the first time Emma and Aidan first officially met at the company Christmas party. And although it wasn't an all together pleasant experience for the two of them, I enjoyed it nonetheless. I would suggest that you read "The Party" after the first two novels in the series due to the events in the beginning of this book. "The Party" should be #2.5 instead of #0.5. If you're a fan of The Proposition series, than I suggest you don't miss out on this short and swe [...]
