The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory isn’t a book I would normally choose for myself. In fact I have read very few romance books in my life, but when it was picked for Reese Witherspoon’s bookclub I thought I would give it a shot.
Was it a little predictable? Sure. But what I hadn’t expected was how much I would enjoy it. I found myself actually laughing out loud in parts. I enjoyed the strong female lead and the entertaining dialogue and tore through the book in two short sittings. It was just the sort of light read I needed after a series of heavy and decidedly un-happy ending books I’ve read lately.
I won’t give away any spoilers but I don’t really feel the actual proposal was a major part of the book at all, perhaps another title may have been more fitting?
While I’m probably not a newly-converted romance fanatic I’d definitely read more by Jasmine Guillory if all her work is as entertaining.
