Lily Zante is a good writer. Time after time, she has me fallin’ in love again with the book’s male character, a hot gorgeous escort named Ethan, who danced with his skivvies in a bachelorette party.. How hot could he be? Steamy!

And Nadine, a very career-oriented woman who finally succumbed to her innermost desire one night when she and Ethan attended a party and pretended to be lovers. The Proposal got me hooked right from the beginning. It also made me realize that not everything is about work and power and money and solitude. Sometimes, or most of the time, one should learn how to stop and smell the flowers.

The ending was something a little mellow-dramatic, but still light-hearted. A great afternoon read. Hoping to read the next one in the series.
