Publisher's Summary

A Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine on Audible Pick

“So excited to share my February pick for Reese’s Book Club: The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory! It starts with a proposal in front of 45,000 people at Dodger Stadium. But it’s not exactly love and baseball for Nikole (who says no!!!), and as she’s chased out of the stadium by live camera crews, she’s saved by a couple...of siblings.... Find out what happens next!” (Reese Witherspoon)

The New York Times best seller

"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 best-selling author Roxane Gay)

The best-selling 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....

Critic Reviews

“With sharp banter, a well-rounded cast of characters, and plenty of swoony scenes, Jasmine Guillory defends her position as one of the most exciting rom-com writers out there.” (Buzzfeed

“There is so much to relate to and throughout the novel, there is a sharp feminist edge. Loved this one, and you will too.” (Roxane Gay, New York Times best-selling author)

“The feminist romance touches on uncomfortable conversations about consent during courtship and works to a satisfying ending.” (Mental Floss)

"The real pleasure here is the little world Guillory has created...a Los Angeles populated with a diverse, devoted crowd of nice people who hold each other up, treat each other to cupcakes, have each other’s back, and occasionally fall in love." (Seattle Times)

Loved it

When I read The Wedding Date last year I knew I had to read more by Jasmine Guillory. The Proposal did not disappoint. It was amazing. The characters are witty, the dialogue well sritten and the whole story is amazingly funny. This is a perfect rom-com and would make a great movie.
If you can't resist romance that will make you smile this is the book for you>

Such a waste of time!

I’m not one to write bad reviews, but in this case I feel like I have no choice. This was hands down the worst book I have ever read or listened to. The plot was totally predictable and beyond boring...as in no drama, not twists, nada! To make matters worse, it sounded like it was written by a teenager who occasionally dropped in an f-bomb to try to spice things up. I’m embarrassed to admit that I listened to the entire book, but it’s true. I cringed the entire time, but I was really trying to understand why on earth this book could become one of Reese’s picks. I just don’t get it.

Not Impressed

Was not impressed with this story and did not find the banter between characters amusing.

Just not interesting...

The premise caught my attention but I couldn’t get through more than a couple chapters for a couple reasons. First, the narrator is just a bit flat with her delivery.. I couldn’t sense any emotion in her voice.. secondly, and the writing was just empty. It made me feel NOTHING. I’m all for a good romance and a light read, but it can still be done in a way that provokes some modicum of emotions and interest. Alas, this novel does neither. Oh well, moving on.

Reese liked this?!?!

I have gotten through several chapters and this is the most empty, nothing of a story! I sadly feel like I have wasted several hours and shall now find something worth my time.

Wedding Part II

I was excited to see what Jasmine Guillory had in store after reading the wedding guest but it felt too familiar. I felt like was listening to the same book again. The characters had the same insecurities. I wanted to scream at them "just communicate." The only reason I didn't return this book is because the ending was okay.

I think if you haven't read the wedding guest you will enjoy this one but if you have then this one is just a repeat

Nope.

A mediocre book at best. The whole book is so cringy I can't even. 🙄

Disappointing

I've enjoyed all of the Reece Witherspoon Book Club books, but this one was really disappointing. Boring and predictable.

story was predictable from chapter 1

I thought it was me and then I started reading other reviews and then thought good I'm not alone. I fast-forwarded from chapter 8 to the end of the book and it was very predictable.
