Rambling About.. Holly Martin's One Hundred Proposals

Title: One Hundred Proposals       Author: Holly Martin
Publication: 25 June 2014 - Carina UK
First Line Prologue: 'Okay, you can open your eyes now,' Harry said.
First Lines Chapter 1: I put the phone down on another excited client and sighed. It was February 11th and we'd had a surge of customers all desperately wanting to propose on top of the Eiffel Tower on Valentine's Day. I felt like screaming.
Favorites on 4s: 
4%: Two years was way too long for unrequited love.
14%: 'Well a near death experience is adrenaline filled. My heart was pounding, there was close, physical contact. It's not a proposal I'm likely to forget.'
24%: 'So the noodle hair, is this a new look you're trying out? I think I prefer the onesie.'
54%: It took every muscle, every fibre of my being to physically stop myself from screaming yes at the top of my lungs.
64%: You hear about this sort of thing all the time; couples that were madly in love slowly getting bored with each other, to the point where one of them or even both start plotting ways to kill the other one.
74%: Kirsty MacLennan says: I agree with Megan, snog her face off, you'll get a definitive reaction then.

So here are the basics: Suzie started the website/business the.PerfectProposal.com after a not-so-perfect proposal. Harry is her best friend/web designer/partner in crime. He decides that it would be a good business gimmick to try and find the perfect proposal for Suzie by proposing to her one hundred ways and blogging about them on their site. After one goes viral on YouTube the proposals are able to get even more outrageous as the two travel the world with him proposing to her over and over and over again.

I absolutely positively without any doubt loved this book. It tore my heart to shreds and made me spurt coffee out of my nose on numerous occasions but it was so worth every agonizing second. It's all I can do to hold off until my Christmas in July to read the follow-up!

And that, my dear friends, is all you get out of me. A little blip and the random quotes above (oh, and the teaser from Tuesday). You'll have to fork over the dollar yourself to find out more ... like why I claim a tutu-wearing cow is my new spirit animal ...
