Happy Friday, all! Today I am super excited to share my review of another book I group read, The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory! Publishing on October 30, 2018 by Berkley.

My Thoughts:

Nikole is dating an actor, and they are on a date like any other with his buddies tagging along, except this time they are a Dodgers game. In front of a stadium filled with cheering fans, he proposes after only five months together. 

And Nikole wants and needs to say no. In front of everyone.

Thank goodness for Carlos Ibarra who whisks her away from the cameras and supports her when she takes a few hits on social media . Carlos becomes Nik’s “just for fun” rebound relationship, but will they ever become more?

The Proposal is not one of my typical reads, but I read it at just the right time. I needed a feel-good, engaging, fun read, and this was most definitely it. Jasmine Guillory has an easy writing style, and I enjoyed Nikole’s story. One of the best parts is the cast of characters are diverse. We need more diverse (in every sense!) reads! Now I need to read The Wedding Date to see where these characters make cameos! 

Thanks to Berkley for the complimentary copy. All opinions are my own. 


The author of The Wedding Date serves up a novel about what happens when a public proposal doesn’t turn into a happy ending, thanks to a woman who knows exactly how to make one on her own…

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…
