Story was hard to get through. It was essentially one long sex scene, where they only took breaks for donuts and unrealistically resolved fights. I couldn’t wait for the book to be over.
I liked parts but the characters were pretty boring and overly insecure. Carlos and Theo were very girly. It was just ok.
I bought the book for about $12 or so bucks, so I’m stuck reading (skimming) it, so I can’t wait to get it over with. Maybe the book will surprise me at the end. Early chapters are just simply not interesting. I don’t care that they’re pretending to be a couple, but the author really wants me to care about their insecurities and yearning. Stakes aren’t high enough for me. On the flip, her storytelling is great as far as structure and flow.... Just extremely boring story.
I really liked this book. A sweet romance that was realistic and a few times I caught myself going "awwww" . Looking forward to checking out Jasmine's other works.
I really loved this story. It was a refreshing love tail that gave me warm and fuzzies. I’m still thinking about the characters even though I finished the book.
The kick off of the story had some promise and intrigue, but it seemed like the author could never pull us out of the endless loop of casual sex that wasn’t really casual sex but nobody wanted to say that it wasn’t casual sex tap dance. Also I found the racial concerns a little bit one sided; there should have been a little angst for Drew as well as Alexa. I could see that the author was trying to weave in some character complexity with Drew’s patient concerns, and Alexa’s TARP project, but this story was definitely heavy on the “fooled around and fell in love” gambit which made it drag at times. Not something I’ll re-read.
I started this book this afternoon and finished already! What a beautiful love story!!
Sorry. But true. Predictable. Smutty but not smutty enough to be interesting. Waste of time.
Utterly predictable with zero depth. It’s a cute book, but I’d like to have the few hours of my life I spent reading this back.
I actually bought the physical book and it’s been so long since I’ve had the time to sit and read one like that. This book made me fall in love with reading all over again. It’s so beautifully written and makes the hopeless romantic in me swoon repeatedly. Just amazing
One of the worst books I’ve ever read. Awful writing. Shallowest plot ever. I’m convinced the positive reviews must be fake. There’s no other explanation.
I preordered The Proposal as soon as I finished reading this novel. I’m now obsessed with Jasmine’s writing style and can’t wait to read more!
