"A swoony rom-com brimming with humor and charm."--Entertainment Weekly (The Must List)
"What a charming, warm, sexy gem of a novel....One of the best books I've read in a while."--Roxane Gay, New York Times bestselling author of Hunger
A groomsman and his last-minute guest are about to discover if a fake date can go the distance in this fun and flirty multicultural romance debut.
Agreeing to go to a wedding with a guy she gets stuck with in an elevator is something Alexa Monroe wouldn't normally do. But there's something about Drew Nichols that's too hard to resist.
On the eve of his ex's wedding festivities, Drew is minus a plus one. Until a power outage strands him with the perfect candidate for a fake girlfriend...
After Alexa and Drew have more fun than they ever thought possible, Drew has to fly back to Los Angeles and his job as a pediatric surgeon, and Alexa heads home to Berkeley, where she's the mayor's chief of staff. Too bad they can't stop thinking about the other...
They're just two high-powered professionals on a collision course toward the long distance dating disaster of the century--or closing the gap between what they think they need and what they truly want...
This was a very stupid book1By ToscabellaSorry. But true. Predictable. Smutty but not smutty enough to be interesting. Waste of time.
Shallow1By 12klg12Utterly 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.
his book made me fall in love with reading all over again.5By __iputlifeonmybackI 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
Stunned by so many good reviews1By adv510One 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.
SO GOOD.5By HeadphonesGotMyBackI 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!
very fun!4By kristimarie85Getting stuck in an elevator with a hot guy totally sounds like a cheesy romantic comedy. Or so I thought, for some reason the author really made this work without being overly dramatic. I love that the story was told in both Drew and Alexa’s points of view within each of the chapters. I felt this way we, as readers know what was going on in each of their minds at the same point in time. I found the story a bit predictable towards the end, but didn’t mind because it was the way I wanted it to go. I immediately fell in love with Alexa, and was pulled in immediately. She was funny, flirty, cute and quirky all at the same time. Her mid tended to go into overdrive so quickly that I felt connected with her. I didn’t enjoy Drew at the get go, it took a while for me to actually start liking him, but I feel like that made the story more interesting. There were a few short steamy scenes, which I wasn’t really expecting, but didn’t make me too uncomfortable. They were pretty quick and to the point. Overall I would highly recommend this book to any lover of contemporary books who wants a quick and easy read that they can just enjoy.
Couldn't put it down!4By myyogapartySuch a cute love story. Very creative, bubbly, and all around happy story. The author really makes it easy to fall in love with the characters. Such a cute quick read for any time of day!
Cute. Romantic. If you love love, you’ll love this!5By shoco324I loved this book! I was a child-induced, raging toddlers hiatus from reading for almost 4 years and this was the perfect book to start with. Finished in less than a day, Alexa and Drew’s story pulled me all the way in. Jasmine Guillory did fantastic job. Can’t wait for The Proposal!
A Breath of Fresh Air for Romance Lovers5By C ReaderIn an era where so much of the romance has been taken over by erotica/soft porn masquerading romance, Guillory gets it right while mixing in socially progressive subplots. Enjoyed it immensely.
The wedding date4By Lisa BatemanLisa Bateman's review Nov 19, 2017 · edit really liked it This was such a fun quirky read. There were some parts that had me laughing, and parts that warmed my heart. Alexa and Drew both work all the time. Neither has time nor wants to have a girlfriend or boyfriend. Little do they know that fate is going to knock them over the head. Alexa is meeting her sister who just got a partnership at a law firm. Drew is in town attending his best friend’s wedding as a groomsman. What makes it even more awkward is the friend is marrying Drew’s exgirlfriend. So Drew needs a date so he doesn’t look bad. Him and Alexa are on the same elevator when they get stuck. Luckily, she has cheese and cracker in her purse that she was planning on celebrating with her sister, along with a bottle of champagne. Drew thinks to ask her to attend the wedding with him. She will have to fake being his girlfriend. It was so much fun to read about Alexa and Drew faking their romance. But from the beginning, it wasn’t very hard. They both found themselves constantly holding hands or touching each other in some way. Too bad they live a long way from each other. They stay in touch and start a long distance relationship. There are a lot of bumps in the road and a lot Alexa doesn’t know about Drew. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were so well developed. I feel like I know all of them. I would like to see the author write a book with Carlos finding his better half. I really liked his character. The reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 is because of the reference about the trouble Olivia got in as a kid and how if it had been Drew, the cops would have done anything because he is white. That’s racist. And it offends me because my hubby was a cop for years and he was never that way. Yes, I know there are some that are but not all of the.
