About A Proposal They Can’t Refuse by Natalie Cana

Puerto Rican Kamilah’s made sacrifices, sometimes without her family’s knowledge, to keep the family restaurant going. Irish American Liam’s bound and determined to debut his deceased dad’s whiskey to accolades.

Kamilah and Liam grew up together. Their grandfathers are like brothers – and not above a bit of meddling. They basically blackmail Kamilah and Liam into agreeing to get married. Which forces these friends turned enemies into a fake engagement. Hijinks and feels ensue.

My thoughts about A Proposal They Can’t Refuse

This book is full of so much warmth, along with the love and frustration that families, especially very (overly?) involved families, bring.

You’ll get:

  • Friends to enemies to lovers
  • Fake dating
  • Forced proximity
  • Only one bed
  • Second chance
  • Childhood friends
  • Opposites attract
  • Sunshine and grump
  • Great friends groups
  • Meddling family members
  • Steam and undeniable attraction
  • Humor
  • Fantastic food and whiskey descriptions
  • Autumn vibes
  • Big feels

In closing

This is a warm and spicy book about families both biological and found and the love and loss they bring.

Thank you MIRA for the ARC.

About Natalie Cana

Natalie Caña has been many things: a teacher of fun-sized to king-sized humans, a seriously unqualified softball coach, a scaredy-cat Halloween store manager, an Emmy award winning public television producer, and more. The one thing she’s ALWAYS been, since she first picked up a pencil, is a writer.

She loves to incorporate her you’ll-never-believe-what-just-happened-to-me personal experiences, enthusiasm for telenovela tomfoolery, and love for her Latinx culture into creating funny, heartfelt, and just a little bit over-the-top contemporary romances for characters who look and sound like her.

When she’s not writing in her peaceful, Hamilton-themed office, Natalie can most often be found engaging in shenanigans with most of her family (who almost all live within a ten block radius) or taking naps with her fur baby, Mr. Bruno Mars (Also known as, He Who Doesn’t Feel Like Doing Anything).
