Description

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....

fun and VERY light

I'm going to start this by saying, I did like this story. It's fun and very very very light. I think it would be better to just read it rather than listen to the audio book. The narrator did a great job but listening to the audio version highlights the weakness in the writing. Her boyfriend got kind of mean and crazy when she rejected his proposal I kept kind of waiting for the other shoe to drop with the boyfriend but the stakes continued to be very low. This could not be considered literature but it is fun and light. I recommend reading it on a plane or a beach :)

Unfortunately it's just not a good book

I hate giving negative reviews but this book was just bad. I wanted something light and easy after reading a few heavy novels but this was disappointing.

Pros
The diversity of the characters is great

Cons
The author introduces the characters' ethnicities in a blunt and ridiculous way. In order to get across that one of them is black the author has the female protagonist getting pissed off at the Male protagonist for not telling her his best friends fiancee is black.

The Male protagonist is very clearly written by a woman. His thoughts and dialogue are very 'high school girl' to me.

The dialogue between characters is very awkward and childish, I found myself rolling my eyes the whole way through.

This book has the pretense of being about female empowerment, but the male protagonist makes women sound needy, incompetent and uninteresting. The female protagonist and her friends play very stereotypical and cliche women, and the author somehow accomplishes the opposite when trying to make them seem independent and strong.

The phrasing and dialogue is incredibly repetitive, and the characters are always declaring they 'will never do this' or their friends 'can never do that ever again'. The exaggeration gets old and immature quickly.

The author tries to make the Male protagonist seems super cultured and cool. Referencing the 'east side' often when it adds nothing to the story, and going out for tacos like no one has every heard of a taco before. She also makes it seem like making scrambled eggs, bacon and toast is a feat no one has ever accomplished before.

The narrator for this book was also a poor choice. She just didn't fit the vibe in my opinion and it made it all sound more awkward in the end

Not my thing

Waaaaaaay to boring for me. Surprised it has such good reviews. Nothing special or inspiring about the plot. The narrator was blah. Maybe I’m just in the wrong head space.

Pointless...

This is one of the worst stories I have ever read/listened to. Pointless, predictable, not engaging. At first I thought the narration was the problem until I realized she was just doing her best reading a bad book. The sex scenes were unnecessary and awkward (I’m not a prude, they were just gratuitous and also not enjoyable to listen to). Skip this one and find some other cutesie rom/com option instead.

That Spanish accent though

Narrator is good but that Spanish accent is no bueno.
The story is pretty boring and tactless. The characters are awesome on paper but are poorly executed and all have the same voice.
Also Nik left a dudebro for another dudebro.
And

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.

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

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>

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.

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.

Extremely corny

Was hard to get through this book as it’s was extremely cheesy. The Narrator did not help with this situation either. Don’t waste your money.

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.
