Proposing to Preston – by Katy Regnery + GIVEAWAY!

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Proposing to Preston is the second of four books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome Winslow brothers who are all on the look-out 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. And Christopher, who's only on the look-out 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 to ever 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.

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Time for the next Winslow brothers installement, after Brooks it was Preston’s turn now. Katy is a wonderful author, her series are great and I love that this one is connected to her previous series – the English Brothers. The blurb of this book sounded really intriguing and it was more than I ever hoped for.

The story starts two years back in New York. Preston Winslow, soon to be lawyer, goes to see a show off-off Broadway and falls in love with actress Elise. They fall for each other pretty hard and suddenly there is an opportunity for Elise to get to Broadway and be on stage next to Hollywood stars, at the same time she loses her apartment and gets to know Preston. Their love is sweet, deep and passionate (but Elise is a virgin) and Preston is the perfect boyfriend, by her side and helping her. Without even thinking she lives with him and becomes a great star on Broadway. Preston askes the question soon, but soon after Elise is offered a great movie deal and has to make a big decision.

Elise, is an ambitious actress and her biggest dream is to be a famous Broadway actress. Her career is important to her and she goes for it. I loved having that aspect in the story, I’m a big Broadway and West End fan, Musicals are part of my life, so it was amazing reading about this business.

Before I even started reading the book, I saw that the first few chapters were set in the past and the other half was set in the present. This scared me a little bit, especially when I saw what Elise and Preston had. Their relationship might moved a little fast, but they had a true connection and that came across beautifully in the writing.

Two years later… Elise is a world famous actress and a movie deal brings her to Philly, Preston’s home. Preston is so shocked when he sees her again at the engagement party of his sister!!! He doesn’t want to talk to her. The story gets very emotional here, in several ways and I just couldn’t put it down. The engagement party was great, because I was able to catch up with some familiar characters; I just adore connection between books/series.

Will their love get a second chance?! If you wanna know you have to read the book yourself, but let me tell you that it is a dramatic roller-coaster ride with lots of memorable and passionate scenes.

Katy just has a wonderful voice, lines the characters out really well and brings a lot of feelings and authentic emotions into a story! I can’t wait for the next Winslow brother!!!


My possible cast:

Preston: model

Elise: Dianna Agron

About the Author:

Katy Regnery, award-winning and Amazon bestselling author, started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract for a winter romance entitled By Proxy.

  1. My favorite has to be the classic Cinderella, something about emerging the winner after struggle is endearing and humbling.

    Besides that any story where a person wins against all odds is no less than a fairy tale.
