“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

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...

    I really liked this book. A sweet romance that was realistic and a few times I caught myself going "awwww" . Looking forward to checking out Jasmine's other works.

    I really loved this story. It was a refreshing love tail that gave me warm and fuzzies. I’m still thinking about the characters even though I finished the book.
  • Repetitious

    The kick off of the story had some promise and intrigue, but it seemed like the author could never pull us out of the endless loop of casual sex that wasn’t really casual sex but nobody wanted to say that it wasn’t casual sex tap dance. Also I found the racial concerns a little bit one sided; there should have been a little angst for Drew as well as Alexa. I could see that the author was trying to weave in some character complexity with Drew’s patient concerns, and Alexa’s TARP project, but this story was definitely heavy on the “fooled around and fell in love” gambit which made it drag at times. Not something I’ll re-read.

    Sorry. But true. Predictable. Smutty but not smutty enough to be interesting. Waste of time.

    Utterly 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.

    I 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 reviews

    One 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.

    I 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!

    Getting 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.
