The Practice Proposal by Tracy March ~ Review

Source:  Received eBook from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Book Description:

Liza Sutherland isn’t looking for love. Not from a charity-auction date she didn’t even bid on and especially not with Nationals first baseman Cole Collins, the guy she obsessed over as an awkward teenager. She won’t get involved with a notorious player, no matter how attractive Cole is.

Cole Collins is up for contract renegotiation, but after too many late-night parties, he’ll need some positive publicity before he can make the roster. His agent, Frank, pitches Liza as the perfect prop…only Cole didn’t account for Liza no longer being just a teenager with a crush. She’s gorgeous and smart and he’s instantly hooked.

When Frank makes Liza a deal she can’t refuse—a bet she will fall in love with Cole or a cool half mil goes to charity—the game is on. But neither bet on the real feelings that surface. Could a fake fling turn into an official forever?

My Thoughts:


4 stars - Feels as good as it reads.

This story is about two people that aren't looking for love and who aren't even interested in dating but find something anyway.  Liza is still grieving the lose of Wes.  Cole can't seem to trust any girl to want more than his money and fame.  They are both "pushed" a little to give things a try.  I loved that.  They both had a guilty conscious about the beginning but there was no doubting the chemistry.  Sometimes it takes a little something to get people out of their comfort zone and then they wonder why they were ever comfortable there.  That's this book.

I've read a lot of new adult lately and this was a welcome change.  It wasn't brazen or brash.  It was sweet and charming.  Little secrets that popped out made it interesting.  I must admit that at least of those secrets was a complete blind slide for me.  Love it when that happens.  

I enjoyed these two together.  I loved that they were on opposite sides of a baseball rivalry.  I love the pie wars.  I loved Liza's bestie.  I'm hoping that there is a campaign coming for said bestie.  I loved that all the little pieces were tied up.  I loved the ending.  I felt good reading this book.

If you're looking for a nice quick read that just feels good, then give this one a shot.
