“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 bestselling author Roxane Gay

The 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…

I get excited when I read a new author and love the nervous butterflies in my tummy because I hope for a good book and this book sounded like it would be great.

 Nik is a freelance writer who is at a baseball game with her boyfriend of 5 months when low and behold said boyfriend is down on a knee and asking that question most girls would be happy to hear. Nic is mortified because how can she tell him no in front of millions? Who wouldn’t day no, they have only been dating for 5 months and she wasn’t that really into him in the first place! Enter Carlos and his sister Angela who are watching everything unfold and Carlos comes to her rescue and saves her and friends are made.  Carlos is sexy doctor and single and Nik and Carlos are both looking for no strings relationship.

Yep of course it won’t be smooth sailing! The banter between these two is magnetic from the start! Carlos family is sweet and funny and real! This story was sweet, sassy and magnetic. This new to me author did well in captivating me. I was glad to have a page turner! Loved it and definitely two thumbs up!
