Bulletproof Proposal Guest Post

Are you hoping for a proposal this valentines day_

Guest Post by Rebekah Bryan

I am very excited to share this post with you. As most of you will be aware, I have published my latest book ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’.

This is my second book and I decided to write a novelette. I love the idea of a short story, the reader can enjoy it in one or two sittings, fitting it in around their hectic lifestyles.

The idea for ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ came when a close friend of mine was waiting for her partner to propose. I thought about what someone might do in that situation and I think most people would try and gain control, giving rise to the idea for my new book.

This story was an exciting piece for me to write. I took on Lisa’s character with ease as she was fun to write about (I think I could also see some of myself in her). Authors will tell you to write about a topic that you would want to read yourself and this is a book that I would want to snuggle up with. I also love the cover, which I had great fun designing, and I am guilty of choosing a book by its cover, so I hope it will attract you too. My wonderful husband put together the book trailer and I think it is a wonderful teaser of what’s to come.

‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ was published in November 2017, and my hope is that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. Please leave a review if you liked it, on either Amazon or Goodreads, and tell your friends and family about it, it would be much appreciated.

Here is the book blurb & trailer.

After five years of dating Lisa is anticipating that all-important question, will you marry me?

Impatient, Lisa decides to take matters into her own hands and propose to Matt, after all it is the 21st Century.

Only she takes it one step further and with the help of her best friend Mandy, she prepares the ultimate proposal.

What she doesn’t know is whether this will be the beginning of her happily-ever- after or the beginning of the end.

The Bulletproof Proposal

The Bulletproof Proposal

By Rebekah Louise

4 our of 5 chickadees singing!

I was given this book and am voluntarily reviewing it. This was a cute short story about a woman not only proposing to her boyfriend, but planning the entire wedding without him and surprising him! Putting together a wedding in two weeks would be my nightmare, but it was fun to read about how she did it and made it happen. I love reading about wedding planning, as I had so much fun planning my own. Like main character, Lisa, I wasn’t sure how her boyfriend, Matt, was going to respond. I love when my chick lit books are not completely predictable.

I would have loved if this story were a bit longer and more fleshed out. It did feel rushed. Overall, though, I enjoyed this quick read that gave me happy memories of planning my own special day.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. When I read the description for Borrow-A-Bridesmaid, I was instantly interested. I have been in SIX weddings myself and will be in a seventh next summer, so I definitely wanted to read about someone who made a career out of it!

This is a picture of me and my brides!
This is a picture of me and my brides!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. Main character, Piper, works in an airport selling books. It’s not exactly what she dreamed of after majoring in English in college and having intellectual, academic discussions all day. She is struggling financially, which is why she decides to rent herself out as a bridesmaid. First, Piper fills in for an injured cousin for an OCD musician’s wedding. She meets the bride’s brother, Charlie, who also has literary aspirations beyond his work as a barista. They have an instant chemistry and connection, but then he leaves unexpectedly to go back to California. Nursing her broken hear, Piper becomes a bridesmaid to perfectly-put-together, successful Alex. Piper’s next bride is Stacey, who is marrying a Hindu man and having two ceremonies and needs a bridesmaid for one of them. Then, bride number one, Susan, calls Piper and tells her she has a job for her. Piper is surprised to find herself a bridesmaid for hire in a wedding to her love connection, Charlie. Susan asks Piper to be undercover and figure out why he is marrying the woman he is marrying. Oh boy!

I liked Piper and reading about all the weddings she was in was hysterical. All of her brides were so different with such differing personalities and tastes. Piper had to navigate it all with a smile. I love the tale of going to a sample sale and trying to find the perfect dress. I also liked the book’s focus on the gap between college and a job that actually relates to your career. Sadly, many people nowadays end up taking a job just to pay the bills even though their passions and college studies were something totally different. Piper’s love connection with Charlie was so sweet and enjoyable to read about. They were such a perfect match and I wanted them to end up together! I also liked the secondary characters and Piper’s hilarious adventures unrelated to her bridal work.

This book caught my interest right away and never lost it. I felt invested in Piper’s life and future and was very interested in the secondary characters. I liked that it covered so many different aspects of Piper’s life, while there was still one main plot, there were a lot of other things going on, too. It was very funny and I really had no complaints about it! I would certainly recommend this book as a fun, chick lit read! I hope to see more from this author in the future!
