All of our best dates end up in the emergency room….
I planned the perfect proposal. Plenty of lobster, caviar, champagne and–her favorite–tiramisu. The perfect setting. The perfect woman. The perfect everything.
Dad gave me my late mother’s engagement ring, platinum and diamonds galore. Shannon wouldn’t care if I slid a giant hard-candy ring on her finger instead of a three-carat diamond designed to impress. But my future mother-in-law, Marie, will pass out when she sets eyes on that rock, which will give us two minutes of blessed silence. That woman talks more than Kim Kardashian flashes her naked backside on the internet.
I was going to make it perfect, from the color of the tablecloth to the freshness of the roses. And it was perfect.
Until Shannon swallowed the ring.
It’s kind of funny how over the top our author makes this story and i think that while there’s a chance that it could easily be ‘too much’ – it works here. We have a sweet story about how a couple is so perfect but their family and friends are insane.
We know that Shannon and Declan are destined to be together and we know that they WANT to be together, but of course that’s never easy. Declan’s father is determined to make him rethink things over and over again, and Shannon’s mom continues to make Dec so uncomfortable that he second guesses things.
If that weren’t enough, the stress of planning a proposal makes Dec even more nuts. Add to that some drama with his brother Andrew and Shannon’s friend Amanda, and you can only guess how dramatic things will go.
We get a revisiting of ‘Toilet Girl’ here – appropriate as always, and i think that’s the consistency that we love. Aside from that, it’s really just a sweet and enjoyable next installment to the series.
