Review| The Summer Proposal – Vi Keeland

I’ve been on a romance kick lately and one of them I recently read was The Summer Proposal! Vi Keeland is an author I’ve heard a lot about, but never read anything by. This finally changed and I have to say I’ll be reading more. Keep on reading to read more about this book and what I thought!

The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date.
Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on.
Exactly what I needed after my breakup.
Or so I thought… 
Until my real date arrived.
Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up.
To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date.
I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet.
But my real blind date and I had no connection.
So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game.
When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.
Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.
Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy.
A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled.
You guessed it: Dimples.
Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play.
And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood.
He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.
Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right?
Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.


I have to start off by saying I love Vi Keeland’s writing. It sucked me right into the story and I didn’t want to stop reading when I got to work (this was my work commute book). She created characters that seemed realistic and she left a smile on my face when I finished the book.

Georgia is a hardworking business owner and her company is her everything. This may have also be the reason her and her fiance are kind of taking a break while he’s in England. He’s seeing other people, so why shouldn’t she? I have to say if I were here I would’ve spoken up real soon about that arrangement. But she tries to make the best of it and finally agrees to go on a blind date. That’s when things get interesting. I loved Georgia. She’s hardworking and is determined to keep her company going, but it’s also part downfall, because she doesn’t really let herself relax. I loved seeing her think more of herself and what she wanted throughout this story.

“Whatever you think is so complicated, isn’t. Don’t wait until you’re seventy and sick to figure out that life is pretty simple. Be with the people you love, and your life will feel full in the end, whenever that time may come.”

Max is a hockey player and a very charming one at that. I loved how he just went up to Georgia and pretended to be her date. He feels something and makes it known. Besides loving his sport, he’s also a family man. I loved his interactions with his family. Max made me laugh and swoon, haha. He’s definitely an addition on the book boyfriend list.

Georgia and Max were so much fun together. Yeah, they may have only signed up for a summer of fun, but the chemistry jumped off of the pages. I loved their banter, talks, adventures, and everything about them together. Yeah, there was even some angst, but I felt it fit this story well. Add some amazing side characters and The Summer Proposal was a great read!

If you’re looking for a fun summer read, I definitely suggest The Summer Proposal! Have you read anything by Vi Keeland? If you have, what book should I pick up next? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
