    Loved the Diversity!

    3-3.5 stars This was a cute and fun contemporary romance. It features a hilarious diverse cast of characters that I found really refreshing. I also really enjoyed the Los Angeles setting. This is my first book by the author and though previous characters from her book The Wedding Date appear, the book can be enjoyed as a stand alone. I liked Carlos and Nikole (Nik) both individually and together. They each had some baggage haunting them and influencing their actions, but as you got to know each character it made sense why they were so hesitant to explore the possibility of more. I enjoyed seeing their friends with benefits relationship blossom and develop as they slowly let their guard down. Readers should note that the majority of the love/sex scenes are fade to black or occur off page, so if they're looking for a hot and heavy read, this is not it. One thing I really loved about The Proposal was the relationships between Carlos and Nik's family and friends. Nik's friendship with Dana and Courtney was amazing and probably my favorite part of the book. We would all be lucky to have even 1 friend as loyal and supportive as these ladies. The book started off very promising and I was really intrigued by the proposal (and rejection) heard round the world, but afterwards, the pacing felt a little off and seemed to stall. A lot of time was spent describing food/drinks, when I really would have liked more back story about Carlos and Nik since it was such a big part of their character arcs. When the conflict arose, I felt Carlos acted completely out of character and honestly, I wasn't sure if I truly felt that they were at the point of those types of declarations. It all wrapped up very quickly and though it was very cute, I'm not sure I was really satisfied. I think what was the most odd for me was that I didn't feel that these characters acted their supposed ages. They are in their late 20's and early 30's, but I had to remind myself of this several times. Overall, this was still an easy and enjoyable read. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    So much fun!

    Loved it from start to finish and will never be able to look at sour cream the same way again! Great to see Drew and Alexa again too. Love the friends and the family! A great, fun contemporary romance that doesn’t skimp on sex OR emotional reality. Good stuff.

    Review: The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory

    I’m very happy that The Wedding Party is coming out in July. I read and loved The Wedding Date early this year. And I just devoured The Proposal. I’m left needing more from Guillory! I am not disappointed in giving into the hype behind this author and reading her books. The hype and praise is well-deserved. Guillory is able to write characters and a plot that draw you in with how authentic they are. It felt like a world I could walk into and not feel out of place. They characters were “real” people dealing with “real” situations. There’s no need to say “that could only happen in a romance novel” with this book. (Not a knock on other romance novels. I’m a big fan of the genre. This was just a book that didn’t push into a place filled with fate and overly dramatic situations. It was a nice change of pace.) I’m sure I say this often with books I loved, but I would have enjoyed if the book I read was only half the full book. Even if the second (imaginary) half was just the couple going about their daily routines without any more complications or excitement. They’re great characters that I’d like to hang out with, especially when they’re eating. The food scenes made me hungry each time. If you’re looking for a down-to-Earth romance, check this one out. If you need to fill the void The Wedding Date created, this is probably the book for you. But remember, you may NEED The Wedding Party right after. I’m trying to be patient, waiting for July to come.
