The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory is a contemporary romance.
When Nikole’s casual boyfriend of only 5 months proposes to her front of a stadium full of people, she is shocked. Not only had this come out of the blue but he spelled her name wrong on the proposal! When Nikole turns down the proposal, things begin to turn a bit ugly in the crowd. Watching the event from a few rows back, Carlos and his sister decide to swoop in and rescue Nikole before reporters can descend on her. Thus beginning the friendship between Carlos and Nikole.
Nikole, looking for a rebound to come back from that awful proposal, and Carlos who is too busy with family and work to have any kind of serious relationship, decide that since they’re both on the same page they can be in a friends-with-benefits type of deal. What could possibly go wrong with that? (😉)
This was a light, fun romance. Full of diverse characters, hilarious dialog, great feminism, and excellent, yummy food. I did not read The Wedding Date and about halfway through I had a feeling that this story was a sort-of-not-quite sequel to that so I looked up The Wedding Date and I was right! Now I want to go read it also!
I laughed, I cried, I loved it! Aw! Such a feel-good story❤️️.
