The Proposal, An Exciting Follow-Up to The Wedding Date (Review)

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...

Jasmine Guillory once again invites readers into a romance that will tickle your funny bone and make you melt into a puddle of sweet chocolate. The Proposal is just as charming and captivating as The Wedding Date!

From the unconventional proposal and subsequent meltdown, this story will draw you in and not release it's hold on you until the end! Nikole and Carlos are perfect for each other because they're opposites and both down to earth. Carlos is a bigger character than I ever could have imagined he would be when he was first introduced in The Wedding Date, but I loved getting to know him and seeing a different side of him.
Both characters have depth and keep the story interesting as their layers are peeled away.

I loved that the story introduces completely new characters on top of bringing back Alexa and Drew in a couple of scenes. Nikole's quirky friends add to the sass and humor while Carlos brings a more emotional layer to the story. His deep connection with his family shows his soft heart and may just bring a few tears to readers' eyes. The Proposal will read nicely as a standalone, but you might as well read The Wedding Date because it's just as awesome!
