super sweet story and I wish you lot of One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic good books and 5 stars ratings 25 REALLY Slow Moving StarsHmmm wellat least it didn t take long to read I don t believe I ve ever started a review off uite like that to be honest It was also an entirely painless read void of any drama whatsoever Unfortunately there en lies the problemI suppose a little back story s needed here Liza s had a rough couple of years Her fianc was killed in the line of duty and she s resigned herself to never finding love again Cole s an all star first baseman who s become famous for his exploits off the field than for his solid play on the field In his early years Cole attended baseball camps put on by Liza s father and the two became friends albeit with Liza developing aood sized crush on Cole When a date with Cole is offered at a silent charity auction Liza s mother takes the opportunity to bid on behalf of Liza with the hope that Liza will finally start dating again and possibly reconnect with her teenage crush Cole s overly involved agent pushes Cole to start publicly dating Liza because after all that will magically improve Cole s public image and that lucrative new contract will be his After turning down a second date with Cole that same agent offers Liza a 500000 donation to the charity she works for if she can date Cole for 2 months and not manage to fall in love with him What s she have to loose Kind of like a convoluted The Routledge Handbook of Spanish in the Global City game of romance chicken with the proceedsoing to charity Here s the kicker either Cole or Liza s aware of the deal the other s made For as unbelievable as this premise is there s little to no drama in this book and the only action takes place on the baseball field There s a seemingly endless amount of internal monologues where the characters have long involved conversations with themselves but very little interaction between the two Even when she thinks he cheated on her the conversation basically boils down to It s understandable how that was taken out of context I believe you Darn that twitter Come on people Someone please just raise your voice or emote something I dare you She feels The Holy Grail guilty about moving on and he realizes he s looking for a serious relationship with Liza instead of the parade of models and one night stands that s become his norm They both know they need to set the other straight on the circumstances leading up to the beginning of the relationship but instead of talking to each other they keepoing around and around in their own heads Then they British Jihadism go over and over these facts internally until I thought about screaming just to break up the monotony She does eventually open up about her fianc and he explains a little about his difficult childhood but that s it Unfortunately I never felt any kind of connection romantic or otherwise between Liza and Cole except a companionable friendship The addition of a non closed door love scene or two might ve helped There are past issues involving Liza s parents and Cole but that proved unnecessarily boring as well The eventual drama when Cole and Liza discover the other s deal came and went and by the end I simply feltblah This book provided from the publisher through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review Slick s review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews45 StarsThis is one of those books that I saw the publisher s blurb on Facebook and I raced to buy it I m a sucker for any book with a baseball theme I can t help it I know there are readers out there that are huge football hockey and basketball followers but for me it s always been baseball This is a new to me author so I wasn t sure what to expect but after reading The Practice Proposal I know for a fact I ll be checking out the other offerings of Tracy March because this book is a homerun on a stick swirled in chocolateLiza Sutherland has endured what most people never want to face her fianc wasunned down in the line of duty and she hasn t dated since She s fine with her life but her mother thinks otherwise and buys her a charity auction date with her teenage crush and now staring player for the Washington Nationals Cole Collins Cole has his own. Liza Sutherland isn’t looking for love Not from a charity auction date she didn’t even bid on and especially not with Nationals first baseman Cole Collins the Virgin Widow guy she obsessed over as an awkward teenager She won’tet involved with a notorious player no matter how attractive Cole.

K Both Cole and Liza have some past issues they need to deal with and it seems they are the only ones that can help each other out I found my heart breaking and even shed a couple of tears for both of them at times Cole and Liza also had fun and entertaining times together in which I found myself laughing out loud with them When they forgot about the reason they were in this relationship Cole and Liza were focused on each other and the relationship was easy and fell into place We don t Wife in Exchange get to read a lot of books about easyoing relationships so it was refreshing There were no overly dramatic elements that you would roll your eyes at and I loved that about Cole and LizaThe rivalry between Cole playing for the Nationals and Liza cheering for the Orioles was a big part of the book and so much fun If you are a baseball fan you will really enjoy that about this book I enjoyed the secondary characters in the story especially Liza s friend Paige I hope there is a book in the future about her because she is a little spitfire and definitely entertainsThe Practice Proposal is a sweet romantic read Tracy is an author that I will be checking out again in the future for sure I highly recommend The Practice Proposal to anyone looking for a fun flirty heartwarming read about family friends and love Copy received from Publisher I love me some sports romance books but this one just did not hit the mark for meLiza and Cole know each other from the past Back when Cole was at baseball training camp trying to make a name for himself and Liza was the awkward teen who swooned over him fast forward years later and Cole is now a MLB player with a rep and Liza is trying to figure out how to move on after losing her fiance Enter a charity event date and a bribeAll The Eternal Ice (Magic: The Gathering: Ice Age Cycle, good relationships start with bribes obviously I just it all seemed so forced The charity date Cole s manager bribing Liza to date Cole Cole s relationship with Liza s parents soooo much drama And on top of that I never felt the sparks between Cole and Liza Cole went from being a playboy who doesn t want to settle down to wanting a life with Liza within the same chapter It doesn t happen that wayIuess I just wanted depth to these characters If you are in the mood for a light hearted feel Night And Day good romance look no further I really enjoyed it I am also a sports fan so the fact the main character is a hottie baseball player was a bonus This was also my first Tracy March read and was impressed with her writing style and how uickly she drew me into the storyline and kept my interest throughout uite the fast paced littleem Liza Sutherland wins a night out with Cole Collins an All Star first baseman She is freaked out because she didn t even enter the silent auction and has no desire to date ever again Turns out it was her mother who entered her name in the drawing For Tennessee Takedown / Ravens Hollow good reason Liza s mother desperately desires for her toet back out there and start dating again The reason adds a lot to the storyline IMHO so no spoilers hereCole is a player both on and off the field He is the black sheep of his baseball team and is always in the news concerning his bad boy behavior due to all the partying with his long list of women particularly the Victoria Secret model variety It has been years since he laid eyes on Liza the The Cowboy Takes a Bride (The Bridal Bid gangly all knees and elbows teenageirl wearing braces no less who would Michaels Discovery (The Devaneys go allaga over him when she would come and watch him play at the summer camps her father held every year for promising young players Cole knows he needs to be seen out and about with this well respected virtuous woman to shake off his playboy image He hopes she sticks around long enough after their first auction date to revive his career and Shotgun Wedding (Silhouette Yours Truly, get him through contract negotiations At least for his sake Liza looks nothing like the mousyirl of yesteryear A definite second chance romance Glad I was Life Changing Smiles given the opportunity to read itI received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I have to say even thought I am not a fan of baseball nor do I watch it I still very much enjoyed The Practice Proposal and it s sweet plotAfter

would only Only a Whisper get the money if she doesn t fall in love with Cole by the end of their agreementThe Practice Proposal was a wonder story I loved the plot and I thoroughly enjoyed the

and Liza who had already last once a man she fell in love with They were addictive not to fall in love with both of them and it was easy to root for both Cole and Liza till the very end Cole was wonderful to Liza and the lengths he went to win her heart and sweep her off her feet was as sweet as it was swoon worthyI liked the attraction and the history between Cole and Liza I also enjoyed the bit of mystery of what had happened between Cole and Liza s parents Growing up poor Cole ended up in Liza s dad s camp fortunate enough to Copper Lake Secrets get funding from a anonymous donor He was suppose to be drafted by Liza s dad s team when the Nationals drafted him first Cole relationship with Frank was also a bit shocking but I amlad for his happy endingBoth of them made deals that could cost them their hearts and you cannot help but wonder how it would all come out The ending was a bit sad joyful and completely rewarding I didn t need to know or enjoy baseball in order to enjoy this little Brooklyn's Song gem Three Starsuick impromptu read Can t resist a hot baseball player Cute predictable but it was far from a home run. He’sorgeous and smart and he’s instantly hooked When Frank makes Liza a deal she can’t refuse a bet she will fall in love with Cole or a cool half mil Men Are Like Waffles--Women Are Like Spaghetti Devotional Study Guide goes to charity theame is on But neither bet on the real feelings that surface Could a fake fling turn into an official forev.

but Cole has his own reasons for not wanting to rekindle a friendship or anything else with Liza Too bad fate jumps in and hands them both something they don t think they are ready for or wantFrom start to finish this book had me enthralled and yes while there was some baseball involved including a pennant race and World Series baseball was not really the main focus These characters just jumped off the page and into my heart They both have dealt with some pretty big blows in their lifetime and despite that they are pretty normal well adjusted people That s not to say they don t have their insecurities or hang ups but they really work towards not letting them Plain Jane The Hotshot get in their own way I love how from their first date they hop right back to the closeness they shared as teenagers Liza has a way of keeping Cole s ego in check and calling him out and it was cute and fun to watch I like that she sees him just as auy not the superstar athlete he is I like her even for the way she Family of Her Dreams gets him to open up and share his past and the way she accepts all of him When Cole realizes something is holding Liza back he confronts her and then sets out to help her deal with herrief I love that he doesn t pressure her and that he understands she needs to sort out her conflicting feelings While he has some stellar and very romantic moments in this book there is one scene that left me crying my eyes out and convinced me that he is one hell of a Blackmailed Into the Italians Bed guyWhile this is a romance there is a lot of other thingsoing on that make this book completely intriguing There is past deceit secret deals returning bad influences not to mention a pennant race between two rival teams with the hero and heroine on opposite sides However I can t deny that watching these two work their way through everything wasn t beyond satisfying If ever two people deserved happiness it is Cole and Liza I also enjoyed all the supporting characters and their role in helping them find their happily ever afterI highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a Girls Night Out good romance regardless if you like baseball or not The Practice Proposal is one
