The first time I met Max Yearwood was on a blind date.
Max was insanely gorgeous, funny, and our chemistry was off the charts. He also had the biggest dimples I’d ever laid eyes on.
Exactly what I needed after my breakup.
Or so I thought… 
Until my real date arrived.
Turned out, Max wasn’t who I was there to meet. He only pretended to be until my real date showed up.
To say I was disappointed would be an understatement.
Before he left, he slipped me a ticket to a hockey game a few blocks away, in case things didn’t work out on my actual date.
I tossed the ticket into my purse and went about trying to enjoy the man I was supposed to meet.
But my real blind date and I had no connection.
So on my way home, I decided to take a chance and stop by the game.
When I arrived, the seat next to me was empty.
Disappointed again, I decided to leave at the end of the period.
Just before the buzzer, one of the teams scored, and the entire arena went crazy.
A player’s face flashed up on the Jumbotron. He was wearing a helmet, but I froze when he smiled.
You guessed it: Dimples.
Apparently, my fake blind date hadn’t invited me to watch hockey with him, he’d invited me to watch him play.
And so began my adventure with Max Yearwood.
He was everything I needed at the time—fun, sexy, up for anything, and only around for a few months since he’d signed with a new team three-thousand miles away.
Max proposed we spend the summer helping me forget my ex. It sounded like a good plan. Things couldn’t get too serious when we had an expiration date. Right? 
Though, you know what they say about the best-laid plans.


Keeland is at her best in The Summer Proposal. It features incredible chemistry between the main characters, an irresistible love interest, and spice.

Within two chapters of The Summer Proposal, I was hooked. Georgia and Max’s meetcute is easily one of the best and funnest I’ve ever read. Their chemistry is instant and hot despite only speaking for a few minutes before they’re rudely interrupted by Georgia’s actual blind date.

Max is as swoon worthy as they come and is easily one of my favourite Keeland love interests. He’s attentive, sweet, and domineering in the right circumstances (if you catch my drift). Max’s easy going nature and Georgia’s high strung anxiety balance each other out and create tension and conflict without it feeling out of place or forced.

The Summer Proposal is more than meets the eye. There are a few twists and turns readers won’t see coming that make the novel more than just a sports romance. 

Overall, The Summer Proposal is Keeland at her best as she brings readers a sports romance that is more than meets the eye with fire hot chemistry and a sweet and irresistible love interest.
