The Proposal – Jasmine Guillory



This is my first book by Jasmine Guillory. I heard only great things about her first novel The Wedding Date and was delighted when I was able to pick up her latest book The Proposal.

The Proposal was a quick and easy read.

It was the perfect read for a day at the beach or sitting bundled up on the couch on a rainy day. The novel was sweet and fluffy, a cute little romance with a fun supporting cast. The heroine’s group of girlfriends were hilarious and reminded me of the girls of Sex in the City. Just a bunch of women having fun and supporting each other unconditionally.

Both  main characters, Nik and Carlos were easily likable, and genuinely good people. There wasn’t really anything wrong with either character I just didn’t connect with them on a deeper level. I needed a little more spice, fire and excitement throughout the book and between the couple.

The chemistry between Nik and Carlos was one that took time to catch fire. It felt more like a friends to lovers kind of romance, which worked don’t take me wrong, it just wasn’t wowing. Both characters needed just a little more pep for me to be more deeply invested in their relationship.

The story on its own felt very authentic.

Especially the dialogues felt real, as if they were taken from real life conversations. Also, both characters struggled with real life issues, doubts and pouts of insecurity. Kudos to the author to give this book such an authentic feel.

I believe that the author will go far. Her writing was fleshed out, the dialogues were plenty and she kept the plot flowing. I would recommend this book to anyone that is in search of a sweet and easy beach read.

The Proposal – Jasmine Guillory


When someone asks you to spend your life with him, it shouldn’t come as a surprise–or happen in front of 45,000 people.

When freelance writer Nikole Paterson goes to a Dodgers game with her actor boyfriend, his man bun, and his bros, the last thing she expects is a scoreboard proposal. Saying no isn’t the hard part–they’ve only been dating for five months, and he can’t even spell her name correctly. The hard part is having to face a stadium full of disappointed fans…

At the game with his sister, Carlos Ibarra comes to Nik’s rescue and rushes her away from a camera crew. He’s even there for her when the video goes viral and Nik’s social media blows up–in a bad way. Nik knows that in the wilds of LA, a handsome doctor like Carlos can’t be looking for anything serious, so she embarks on an epic rebound with him, filled with food, fun, and fantastic sex. But when their glorified hookups start breaking the rules, one of them has to be smart enough to put on the brakes…
