✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ The Proposal by Adriana Locke


The Proposal
By: Adriana Locke
Narrated by: John Lane & Avery Caris

Breaking News: Rugby’s bad boy marries his best friend’s little sister.

If Renn Brewer would’ve asked me to marry him, I would’ve said no. Why? One, his reputation precedes him. His name is in the headlines at least once a month. Two, he’s not just my brother’s best friend. They’re teammates. And three, I’m in my self-care era.

Unfortunately, a version of me equates self-care with bad choices.

The cocktail in my hand—similar to the one that got me into this situation—is the prettiest shade of pink. It’s almost the same color as the giant rock on my left hand. And instead of discussing an annulment, I’m considering a 90-day marriage of convenience to the man I accidentally married in Las Vegas.

Renn didn’t propose marriage. But he does deliver a proposal I might be unable to turn down.

USA Today and Amazon charts best-selling author Adriana Locke delivers a "spicy & sweet" forbidden sports romance with a marriage of convenience that will make you swoon!

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I'm fairly new to Adriana Locke, but the more I read (or listen to), the more impressed I am. The Proposal is my latest listen, and it's everything I'm coming to expect from this author. This one is packed full of charm and wit, and Ren and Blakely are easily one of the best couples I've read in a long time. And I'm not ashamed to admit that I found myself feeling a little jealous of Blakely - because Ren! OMG, this guy is the total package. He's sweet, he's sexy, and he has just the right amount of arrogance to be sure of himself without being a jerk. Seriously, if you're gonna have a book boyfriend, Ren is The One! Unfortunately for us, he's all about Blakely, which just adds to his appeal. That said, I have to say that Blakely is a great character in her own right. She's sassy and full of fire even as she's still trying to figure out where she wants her life to go.
Now, take all of that and put it in the ever-capable hands (or should I say mouths) of John Lane and Avery Caris for the narration. Adriana Locke couldn't have chosen better for the voices of these characters. Avery Caris brings out all of Blakely's fire, and John Lane has the perfect sexy voice for Ren.
So, I may still be playing catch-up with this author's work, but it's safe to say that this is another great read and/or listen. It's just right for a weekend or vacation read or even a fun road trip with Lane and Caris along for the ride. This one is easily in my top ten reads for the year.
