The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory Book Review

The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date October 30, 2018

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…

The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory Book Review

A public display of affection gone terribly awry. Enter, one of my favorite characters from The Wedding Date, Carlos, to help Nik in her time of need.

Romance – Yay or Nay?

I’m still a bit new to the romance game. This means I’m figuring out what I really love about the genre & what is not for me. I think The Proposal is a great place to start for people who are NOT really into romance. Yes, there’s a love story here, but it’s not over the top. Also, there’s not a ton of steamy sex. Some of us like that sort of thing, but others don’t. The Proposal is more what I used to call chick lit & I’d be happy to recommend this to anyone looking for a light-hearted & enjoyable read.

Jasmine Guillory Makes Me Hungry

Similar to The Wedding Date, The Proposal has so much food. I’m finding I love stories where food plays a central role. Tacos, ice cream, enchiladas – give it to me!

I also love that this story centers around Nik & she is NOT LOOKING TO GET MARRIED. Heck yes! She even tells Carlos he is a rebound. I’m all for women making their wishes & desires known to the man they are involved in. Thank you, Jasmine!


I am Into This book. The Proposal is a great romance that’s not too steamy. I loved meeting Carlos’s family. He is such a fantastic character, I hope we see more of him in Jasmine’s writing. It was so fun getting to know Nik & the ending gave me all the feels in a sparkly, wide-eyed kind of way.
