The Proposal

Nik is at a Dodgers game when the guy who she’s casually seeing proposes – on the Jumbotron, for all to see. When she says no, he flips out. Carlos and his sister Angie see her and decide to rescue her. Carlos and Nik become friends and then start dating, but they both agree to keep things casual. Slowly things begin to get more serious and a little bit of drama ensues. I loved this book but not just because of the romance (and the fact that it gets a little steamy!). I thought it was a testament to the importance of having great female friendships and maintaining our own independence… while also letting someone in (especially when you’ve been hurt before).
