Reading Challenges: 2019 Tackle My TBR Challenge
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...

In Review: My Thoughts
The Proposal has been lingering around on my shelves and TBR for longer than I should admit. And for no good reason, honestly. I enjoyed The Wedding Date and was looking forward to The Proposal. But, too many books and too little time, I suppose. I was rearranging my shelves yesterday and saw it and decided I wanted nothing more than to read it right now. Good choice, too, because it was a really good read.
If I’m being totally honest, I don’t remember a lot of the finer points of The Wedding Date, but I do vaguely remember Carlos. Or at least I did once I started reading. He was a really good guy, protective (almost to a fault) of the ones he loves. It was easy to root for him and swoon over him. I also really liked Nik. Without making this review about me, I’ll just say I felt like I understood her aversion to love pretty well. She was easy for me to connect with. What she had with Carlos started out rather unconventionally, but I loved it. What a unique meet cute.
There were a bunch of reasons I just couldn’t put The Proposal down once I started. The romance and the friendships are two of them. I enjoy reading about the friendships just as much as the romance, to be honest. Whether it’s Carlos and Drew or Nik and her crew, I’m loving the focus on friendship (and family!) in this series. Now I’m even more excited to get to The Wedding Party. Here’s hoping I can make time for it sooner rather than later.
