“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
This delightful, facepalm-inducing novel begins with Jasmine Guillory’s heroine Nikole going to a Dodgers game with a man she doesn’t want to marry. So of course he proposes, and the whole horror show is shared via Jumbotron with a crowd of 45,000. As she did with her winning debut, The Wedding Date, Guillory puts a wonderfully contemporary twist on the feel-good rom-com. She’s canny and clever about summoning shockingly familiar relationships and problems. You’ll feel you’ve met Nikole’s friends before—and maybe even had their conversations or their lives.
Such a sweet love story with a magical ending!
Loved this book, great characters and fantastic plot. So happy I picked it up!
There’s a place for cheesy
I usually read cheesy books when I’m in a certain headspace. But, the dialogue in this is really hard to get through. Like she relied heavily on the character dialogue for the storytelling, which made the story feel forced. And it felt underdeveloped.
Two stars for diversity tho!
