Description

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick

“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 New York Times bestselling 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...

    Worst book I have read in years. Poor writing and story line. Disappointed it made the cut for Reese’s book club.

    Hello Sunshine’s Book Club pick for February is an adorable Rom-Com of clumsy, uncoordinated first love. Like watching puppies trying to go down the stairs for the first time. Worth the escape!!!
  • Worst book ever

    I was excited to read this book based off the Sunshine Club recommendation. Surprise to find it lack luster and boring. The plot is predictable and the storyline is slow moving and lame. The writing in this book is not complex or interesting.

    Nothing happens in this book. Nothing. There is no plot, no conflict, and dialogue s very basic. I was looking for light reading for a trip, but this was bordering on inane.

    This was a tough read. There was no depth to the characters or their conversations. If I punched someone on a sidewalk, the person walking by would not say “Wow, where did you learn that?”
  • Don‘t bother

    Read the first 50 pages, or rather, suffered through them. Writing was incredibly immature. „Wow, that‘s so...“ every two paragraphs. It felt like a high school novel. Terrible imagery, dull characters, and a boring storyline. Skip.
  • Same plot

    This is the same plot as her other novel.
