The Proposal by Jess Mastorakos

My Review

The Proposal by Jess Mastorakos is the first in the new series of small town military romances, Brides of Beaufort. Shelby and Paul have been best friends since school but after finding out about her heart condition she tells him they are just friends so he is not subjected to living with her situation. To avoid living in the same town, he joins the military and finds a girlfriend. Shelby gives up her dream of dancing and gives dance lessons instead. She arranges a dance proposal for Paul and his girlfriend, but when he is rejected, Shelby is there to be a friend.

This is a well written fun story to read. This is a sweet romance story that focuses on chronic health situations and how they affect not only the person with the condition, but others in their lives. This story also shows that true love does endure and last despite distance and hard situations. I enjoyed reading how Shelby was able to live with her health condition and how she managed to live independently with limited resources because of it.

I voluntarily received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, this is my honest review.

About the Book

My best friend is basically my dream girl. Too bad I can’t have her.

As a Marine who jumps out of perfectly good airplanes for fun, you could say I’m fine with taking risks. But not when it comes to Shelby.

For years, I’ve been firmly in the friend zone, right where she wants me. And since I won’t risk our friendship, that’s where I’ll stay. But I can’t pine over her forever.

When I propose to my girlfriend and get rejected in front of the whole town, the joke’s on me. Turns out proposing to the wrong woman because you can’t have the right one is a bad idea.

Shelby’s always had my heart. Can I convince her to trust me with hers?
