Publisher's summary

Diamonds are a girl's best friends, unless the carat is dangled....

When 27-year-old Hilary meets perfect on paper, Marc, she thinks she has finally found the man of her dreams. He's everything she is looking for - handsome, successful, funny, and has a gorgeous home on the beach. Marc immediately sweeps Hilary off her feet. She is positive her single days of dating duds are over and her happy ever after is right around the corner.

Well, when something seems too good to be, true it usually is!

Hilary quickly finds out Marc has one big problem - he is beyond afraid of commitment! She is willing to take things slow, but after four long years, some days their relationship seems to be going in reverse.

Tired of waiting for Marc to come to his senses, while on vacation, the couple's friends decide to take matters into their own hands and throw a surprise "engagement" party. Will this be the kick Marc needs to pop the question or will their meddling destroy the couple?

In this chick lit memoir, Hilary Grossman digs deep as she explores the good, the bad, and the frustrating of dating and relationships. Dangled Carat is the perfect lighthearted, laugh-out-loud, relatable book for every girl who wondered if she should love him or dump him.

3.5 stars

Overall and entertaining and enjoyable story. When I started this story I didn't realize it was a memoir. I didn't realize it was until after I had finished it. So it's the story of one woman's (Hilary Grossmans) path to her own personal own HEA.
Which actually kind of makes it a little odd to review the story. Because it's actually not just a made up work of fiction, so your giving your review on someone's life story basically. That's interesting and unusual to say the least, who am I to critique someone else's love story.

Relationships are hard and take work no matter what stage of your relationship you are in. We all know what works for one couple may be disastrous for the next couple. Being in a relationship with someone who is adverse to commitment brings it's own set of unique relationship issues. Have to say though, Hilary had the patience of a saint. Are some men worth waiting for? Yes, but not when it starts to make you doubt yourself. Women are their own worst enemies sometimes. Our brains never shut off and we can't stop analyzing every little detail. Glad that everything worked out in the end and they have their HEA.

Lisa Beacom did a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice, easy to listen to for long periods of time. Good character voices. She was able to bring the characters emotions to life especially Hilary's.
