Summary: 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...

Review: Run, Run, Run to your library or bookstore to pick up The Proposal. It’s been a long time since I’ve had time to sit and read to finish a book in less that 24 hours but I did it. This was the perfect pool read.

When Nik is in a pickle because her actor boyfriend proposes marriage in from of a crowd at Dodger Stadium (let alone the tv audience) and she turns him down, Carlos and his sister Angela, come to her rescue. What ensues is some fun and delightful romps but there is also a developing friendship between Carlos and Nik.

While for the most part, this book is a romance read there are some other important subjects that are covered throughout the course of the book. It deals with independence, emotional and verbal abuse. It's about learning to love and let down your walls when you've spend years protecting yourself.

It was a totally fun read and I can’t wait to read more by Ms. Guillory!
