“There is so much to relate to and throughout the novel, there is a sharp feminist edge. Loved this one, and you will too.”—New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay
The New York Times bestselling 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...
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
What starts out as a love story gone wrong turns into a delicious romantic comedy. Jasmine Guillory follows up her hit debut, The Wedding Date, with this witty novel about freelance journalist Nikole, who’s caught off guard when her casual boyfriend stages a very public, over-the-top, and way-too-soon marriage proposal. Nikole is saved by the quick thinking of a handsome doctor named Carlos, setting in motion a sardonic but sweet-natured storyline where one thing leads to another. Actress Janina Edwards’ sunny narration and colorful character voices complement Guillory’s wit and amplify Nikole’s brash charm and empowering self-reliance.
Really enjoyed this story! The author did a wonderful job of keeping me engaged from the very beginning and weaving the story of the two main characters through multiple story lines!! I could not wait to continue each chapter! I look forward to reading another book from this author!! Highly recommend!!
