How would you like to receive a marriage proposal in front on several thousands of baseball fans? Well, that is the beginning of a hectic day for Nikole on her man’s birthday. Not expecting the surprise of a lifetime the characters in this fun romantic read take the audience for a challenging ride of friendship, romance and self-exploration. Jasmine Guillory author of “The Wedding” has created a new smile for the faces of her readers with “The Proposal”
Within the pages of “The Proposal” the characters share happiness, sadness, and self-discovery. This light-hearted narrative is a delightful experience for escaping the stress of the day. Curling up with this book with a glass of wine or ice cold glass of beer with some popcorn will not disappoint. The characters are colorful as a rainbow. The multi-cultural cast of characters is somewhat cosmopolitan.
Jasmine Guillory has her reader audience reflecting on how to overcome the baggage often carried over after heartbreak, regardless of how long ago or recent the pain occurred.
I delighted in the realistic, yet many times carefree conversations between Nikole, Courtney, Dana, Carlos and Angela. These characters were reflective of friendships across the spectrum and teach acceptance and loyalty.
Friendship is the cornerstone for developing the strong bond to carry a loving, sexy relationship forward to overcome fear.
Carlos is a handsome Latino doctor and Nikole a beautiful African American writer. They connect and relate as their newly developing friendship moves to the next level and engage in some erotic moments.
I enjoyed “The Proposal” and recommend it to readers looking for an easy read with realistic characters in a 21st century vibe across various cultural dynamics.
