Summary

Proposing to Preston is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the lookout for love.

(Except Brooks... He's probably sailing around the world with Skye by now. And Cameron, who's having too much fun sparring with Margaret to think about love. And Christopher, who's only on the lookout for a congressional seat and absolutely. Nothing. Else.)

Preston Winslow has a heart as open as the sky and room in his life for someone special. When he falls in love with Broadway actress Elise Klassan, he holds nothing back.

Elise, who has made tremendous sacrifices to forward her career, is swept off her feet by handsome, charming Preston...but the stage has been her first love for so many years, she doesn't know if there's room for Preston in her life. When the day comes that she must choose between her ambition and her heart, she profoundly hurts the one man who could have made her happy.

Two years later, Elise has become a world-famous actress, and Preston is a very successful lawyer. But fame has not equaled happiness for Elise, and Preston is much too bitter and cynical ever to consider falling in love again.

Is it possible that the only person who can mend Preston's heart is the one who originally broke it? Only if Elise can figure out a way to make him believe in love all over again.

Just don’t, trust me!

I hate giving bad reviews, but I hate wasting my time more. The narration is the same voice from the previous book. Bummer, b/c she’s pretty terrible she makes the male voice this low sort of whisper that sounds like she’s trying to make him sound sexy. It’s not sexy, just nearly inaudible. Then the male supposedly sexy voice sound sort of Steve Urkel annoying.

As if the narration wasn’t bad enough, I do not like the heroine in this story. She is selfish and while she eventually apologizes persistently, she has no redeemable qualities to me.

So glad I got this as an audible romance package listen, instead of buying the ebook for $4.

Proposing to Preston

It could have been better. He forgave her to easily after all she put him through. It just felt too rushed. I didn't feel any of her feelings toward him throughout the story. I mean, I felt more of her passion for her career than their relationship. Even when she came back it seemed more like she was feeling unloved and unappreciated and she needed a boost from his view in always putting her on a pedestal because he loved her so much. I honestly felt sorry for Preston. This is a 3.5 rating.

When is it too late?

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. This is a story of moving too fast before finally knowing what is important in your life. Preston is such a compassionate and loving man. He was crushed when an accident kept him from achieving his goal of being in the Olympics. However, he is devastating when Elise chooses her desire to make it as an actress over him. Elise is a young woman whose goal is to become an actress. When she marries she panics. This story really deals with immaturity and making decisions without thinking them through. You need to find yourself in order to really be able to bond with another. This is what the two of them must do. It also deals with understanding and forgiveness. The narrator does a great job of making us feel the emotions of these characters. I recommend this Audible book.

second chance

I was not a fan of Elise, because she threw away a heart that loved her in exchange for fame and fortune , a hard cold mistress . How do you choose a thing over a person. The results of her callousness was a bitter Preston. He deserved a second chance. but she threw hers away like old bath water. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.

Not my fav in the series. Liked the characters just not the story

This one really didn’t do anything for me. The story wasn’t up to par with the previous one. I completely believed how Gaga Preston was over Elise. He seemed intense for her but she didn’t seem the same. I almost wish that the first half of the book wasn’t so long. The second half was much better.

I wish there was more interactions with the family. Camaraderie would add a lot here.
I listened to this On audio and Lauren Sweet does a wonderful job and is easy to listen to

Yikes

Horrible. Even free was too costly. The narration is terrible. Do not try to speed up at all. And though I've enjoyed other titles by this author save yourself and skip this one. I tried fast forwarding through some of it hoping it would get better. I could not finish.

Preston and Elise were perfection together.

Preston and Elise were perfection together. The soul deep connection and magnetic chemistry were beautiful to behold. Katy Regnery did a wonderful job of letting the characters become friends and slowly build up to something more. The slow progression into love is what made it so heartbreaking when these two people were apart. Elise was definitely a go-getter when it came to following her dreams and that tenacity was a central part of her character. Preston led with his heart and that is what made me his biggest fan. Proposing to Preston is really something special. Each time I read a Katy Regnery book I grow more fond of her as a writer.

WTH?!

I just can’t with this Elise chick. She’s such a giant B and then wants to walk back into Prestons life with the audacity and expectation of reconciliation after 2 years of not giving a shit?! What a nightmare of a selfish inconsiderate woman. I can’t believe Preston didn’t write her off. Any normal person would have which is why I can’t with this one. Narration was great, story was insulting to men everywhere and maddening all around. No. No. No. Preston should have found someone new and showed Elise the way out. Dumbest book ever.

I wasn't sure about this story at first. As I kept listening I became more hooked. I enjoyed the characters and revisiting previous friends & family members was great.

Lauren Sweet continues to do a fabulous job narrating.
