Proposal
Proposal | Jasmine Guillory
"There is so much to relate to and throughout the novel, there is a sharp feminist edge. Loved this one, and you will too."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author 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...

Easy read. Would have appreciated more character development and a further insight into the main and supporting characters.

Really enjoyed this one. One of those suck you in but light read at the same time. I couldn't put it down. Also, new author to me and can't wait to read more of her work.

Charming and sweet “sequel” to The Wedding Date. Carlos (Drew‘s BFF from the first book) rescues Nik from a terrible Dodgers game proposal, and they hit it off. A classic “let‘s keep things casual” ensues and like in a perfect summer read kind of way.

She might be my new favorite beach read! This is her second book and it‘s not disappointing! I brought 3 books on this family vacation but as usual I probably won‘t finish any! But reading on the beach with the sand on my toes is making me happy anyway. #beachread #summerread

Whee! A quiet lunch of ham and Swiss cheese bagel, a pile of arugula and heirloom cherry tomatoes. Also a fun read which I started last night and am about a third of the way through

Loved this even more than The Wedding Date! Two great leads who are both interesting and relatable. There were also a couple of engaging subplots that helped keep the story moving and helped this one avoid the second half slump I see in romance a lot where everyone's problems could be solved if the leads would just talk to each other. Definitely looking forward to Guillory's next book!

SW-T Nice summary! I enjoyed this one a smidge more than Wedding Date also. She‘s created some interesting characters😊 1mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @SW-T definitely! Knowing that they'll have cameos in the next book makes me want to read it for sure. 1mo

I was in the mood for something light and fluffy, and this fit the bill. Not perfect, but fun and entertaining for sure!

And since a major catalyst for the action involves a video going viral on social media, I'm going to stretch and claim it for #Booked2019 - Social Media focus 😁

I adore long weekends! Nik is at a baseball game with her sort of boyfriend when out of the blue, he proposes to her on the jumbo tron. Since she was startled and hadn‘t seen it coming, she turns him down. Carlos is at the same game and he and his sister rescue Nik from a camera crew. Eventually Nik and Carlos start seeing each other as a friends with benefits type arrangement but it‘s not long before they both start to feel something deeper. 👇

Started this book right on this beach and just finished it on my plane/train/subway ride home. I liked The Wedding Date a ton more as there were a lot more laugh-out-loud moments in that one, but this was still a cute and sexy romance. Powerful female characters is always great to see, too!

A delightful read. Jasmine Guillermo truly has a gift for writing fun rom-coms with a little more depth. Her characters always ring true, and her meet-cutes refreshing. A perfect spring read.

Carlos was introduced in 'The Wedding Date' (2018) as will the main characters in 'The Wedding Party' (July 2019). While Carlos & Nik's rebound relationship turns into more, no surprise there, I was more impressed by the side storylines: Nik's best friends, Carlos' tight family relationships, but most impressive was the clear, strong message about how easy it is to wake up in an emotionally abusive relationship. Recovering from that isn't easy.

Kloves2read I keep seeing great reviews for this Book! I just moved it up a few spots on my TBR pile. 😊 2mo
MaggieCarr @Kloves2read great plan! I would also recommend preordering book 3 coming out this summer or getting on hold for it at your library before its released :) 2mo

I loved The Wedding Date, so was entirely ready to be charmed by Carlos and his love of food. Nik was a great introduction to the series as the heroine - who is also into good food, prepare to be hungry most of this book. (Minor spoiler) I felt that the late-book “conflict” between Nik and Carlos needed a bit more teeth, it felt kind of juvenile with some of the lines, but I got where Nik was coming from.

balletbookworm I had a galley but it expired early (booo technology) and didn‘t get back to until now. (Weekend of finishing half-read books, yay!) 3mo

Have any of you read this book? I started the audiobook version of it but somehow I can‘t fully get into it. I don‘t mind “cheesy love” stories at all ( ❤️ 😬) but this seemed like an extremely exaggerated soap opera that seems to linger more than it should—-but —- what if I‘m wrong—does it get better? I‘m usually not picky— am I being rude and judging it too soon? SOS 🧐🥺👥

baes I bailed on it because it was so cheesy. It felt like a child wrote it with the juvenile dialogue. I wanted to love it because I heard such high praise, and I love a good fluffy romance. But this was too much. 😕 2mo
Shhh...IAmReading @baes YESSS, you‘re right! I wanted to like it, too but it definitely was too much. And I don‘t mind a good fluffy romance either! 😓 I tried and tried but couldn‘t take it anymore. I felt like I was wasting time and that‘s definitely not a feeling I want to connect with reading 😰😓 2mo

So, you know, maybe this just isn't my genre. Rom Com? Is that a thing in books? I love it in movies, though. So, I don't know. But this just had me dreading picking it up. I did finish, but it was a struggle.

MelissaSue81 It‘s not my genre either. It was fine.. but just that. 3mo
seglitis I agree. I just listened to the Wedding Date. Almost had to bail. I don't think I can put anymore time into this author... 3mo
Traci1 @seglitis yeah I have that one sitting on my shelf, but I won't be opening it any time soon, if ever. 3mo
Traci1 @MelissaSue81 I sort of knew I didnt like this sort of thing. Not sure why I thought this might be an exception. Oh well. Lesson learned. 3mo

Blech. I'm having a really hard time finishing this one. I'm sitting at about 200 pages of 325, and I keep having to force myself to pick it up. I keep saying just read a chapter or two and then you can go to something else. Idk why I feel I HAVE to finish it. Except that I bought it (and another of this author's, ugh). I've loved Reese's other picks, but this one is just beyond awful. Please let it get better.... 😒

Beachesnbooks I really disliked The Wedding Date and ended up dnf-ing. I know this author is super popular but just didn‘t work for me 3mo
AnneFindsJoy Sorry it‘s not s better read for you. Your comments reinforce my decision to give this one a pass from Reese‘s otherwise great list of books! 3mo
Traci1 @Beachesnbooks I have that one on my shelf, but I don't think I'll be picking it up to read. Maybe I'll just take them both to the local Little Free Library. Someone else may enjoy them way more than me. 3mo

The book started out on a strong note - a proposal at Dodgers stadium. But it pretty much went downlhill from there. I just didn‘t seem to bond with Nik. Liked The Wedding Date much better. Glad we got to see Drew and Alexa briefly.

4/5

I've really been enjoying some contemporary romance novels recently, so I decided to checkout The Wedding Date since I'd heard so much about it. I put a hold on it and for its sequel, The Proposal, which had a much longer wait. Then my library purchased more copies of The Proposal, so I got that first. Luckily, it's not much of a spoiler that the couple from The Wedding Date wind up together.

It's a super fun romance that I really enjoyed!

Predictable but enjoyable! I like that Jasmine Guillory is creating this world where her characters are all connected. You don‘t have to read the Wedding Date to know what is going on. But it makes it more enjoyable if you have read it. Perfect read when you need something a little less serious or intense.
