ARC Review: A Proposal Changes Everything by Isabelle Grace
Wait, he isn’t joking? Sure, they’ve been best friends for most of their lives, but that’s just it: they’re best friends.
Except something shifts in both of them following Jack’s suggestion and the more time they spend together, the more Tess begins to consider Jack in a new light.
Could a rock-steady friendship be the perfect foundation of a love for the ages or would they be fools to risk everything they have on a “what if?"
If you read my review of the first book in this series you know that for me Isabelle Grace is a new author. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was looking forward to reading the next one. Like A Baby Changes Everything, A Proposal Changes Everything is about the Blackwood family.
Up this time is Jack Blackwood who is a writer. He and his best friend Tess have been friends since they were kids. Their relationship from the beginning is clearly just friends until it isn't.
I really enjoyed Jack and his family. The way he goes to his brother for advice is sweet. We all have that moment of not knowing if what we are doing is the right thing. I also liked how his younger brother gave him such a hard time about his growing feelings for Tess. Brothers are like that.
I enjoyed Tess too but she seemed to have a few self-confidence issues. I got that she was afraid to lose her best friend but, to be honest, she was going to lose him anyway one day. I'm not sure any woman would have been comfortable about them spending so much time together.
I did like how they worked out their issues and learned that what they have been feeling for so long for each other was love. These two have been dating since they were little kids and just didn't know it. You see it in every little action they do. They know each other so well and get along better than more. All they needed to see is if the physical part of their relationship worked
As a whole, this is a very sweet small-town romance that is very easy to read. I will mention that this story was previously published as Jack's Courtship. Just in case you read it before.
