Overview

A wickedly funny fairytale for modern women from the 'laugh-out-loud funny' (Washington Post Book World) author of The Cinderella Pact.

Genie's commitment-phobic boyfriend is finally proposing-on national television. To the woman he's been seeing on the side. It's a major wake-up call for a girl who's hit the snooze button on her life a few too many times.

With no names mentioned on the broadcast, Genie finds herself flooded with presents and congratulations. It's up to her to explain the mistake, but sometimes waking up is hard to do.

When her parents start planning the reception, she can't help enjoying herself. Why call off the so-called engagement just yet? It's fun to play princess. But unless a prince shows up-and soon-this dream could start getting weird.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Dissed girlfriend exacts revenge on her ungrateful lover. It's a standard mismatch in literary relationships: cocky, hot boyfriends paired with faithful, mousy girlfriends. These ubiquitous rogues take the love and support of their women for granted. Boston Admissions Counselor Genie Michaels is no exception. For four years, she's supported her English Literature professor boyfriend, Hugh, as he struggled to complete his first novel. She's given him pep talks, free editorial services and her undying devotion. Mostly Genie feels lucky to have landed such a handsome and erudite lover. Genie's dealt a blow when Hugh hits it big with his debut. While on his publicity tour, he unceremoniously dumps Genie for another woman, and she learns of the betrayal when he proposes to this mysterious minx during a Barbara Walters interview. Thanks to a pugnacious friend, Genie decides to turn her adversity into opportunity. Since Hugh never goes public with his fiancee's name, Genie convinces her friends and family that she was the recipient of Hugh's on-air proposal. She revels in the bride-to-be glow. She blossoms under all the attention and starts to make changes. In addition to getting in shape and buying fancy undies, she vows to get out of her cramped apartment and into a beautiful new home. That's where Nick, a hunky carpenter, comes into play. Genie's brother tries to convince Genie to purchase the home he and Nick are renovating. Sparks fly in this "love at first sight" pairing. But just as Genie seems on the path to happiness, Hugh comes back into the picture. The now sexy Genie finally has some intriguing romantic options. The plot's not much, but Strohmeyer (The Cinderella Pact, 2006, etc.)succeeds in crafting Genie into an underdog worthy of sympathy. In the end, this plucky girl deserves a Prince Charming. Pleasing, predictable modern fairy tale.

    Love it

    I very much enjoyed this book! Trying to expand from the teen section to the young adult/Chick Lit was easy when I found this gem of a story! Strohmeyer has proven to be a talented writer with this and her other books. Entertaining and luagh-out-loud funny.

    I LOVED THIS!

    I read this right after The Cinderella Pact. I just love the modern day woman of Strohmeyer and they're just so darn easy to relate to. And she just always cracks me up! I can't wait to read Sweet Love.

    Cute, easy read

    Genie has put her life on hold to please her British boyfriend Hugh. When Hugh writes a best seller (with Genie's help) and proposes on TV, life is good. Until Genie discovers the proposal was not meant for her. Thus ensues her plan to pretend that she is getting married. Through the ordeal, Genie blossoms, falls in love for real and deals with her nutty family. The plot is fairly predictable, in the style of Sophie Kinsella, but the book is enjoyable

    Great book

    I really enjoyed the Sleeping Beauty Proposal. I picked it up because I liked the cover...yes, I'm one of those people! At first I thought it was a predictable storyline, but in the middle and definitely towards the end, what I thought was going to happen took a different turn.

    Fun Read

    I love the crazy idea of faking an engagement to get back at "the man" or perhaps at the woman. The sheer audacity of the plot made this a really funny read. I've read other titles by Sarah Strohmeyer. She consistently creates characters who are both familiar and out-there. It's fun to read about what would happen if you really played out one of those insane ideas we all get during the after-work commute. Right?

    The Sleeping Beauty Proposal is a great surprise!

    The plot got so crazy that I couldn't put it down. I had to see how far the main character would actually go in her deception. Just when you think the characters are predictable and you know just what is coming up, the author adds another twist to this wonderful but bizarre plot to keep the reader guessing, "Will it all work out in the end?"

    Sleeping Beauty....

    This book was hilarious. I was laughing all the time, and though some parts were fairly predicable, other parts were a great surprise. I loved all of the charecters. Both women were different but identifiable, and Heath is such a jerk! I like the idea of "a girl doesn't have to wait for prince" with the added fact that a women still needs to feel special (like a princess). Being a girl who considers herself a princess and a fan of Disney's Sleeping Beauty, I picked up this book and ended up with a novel about a women becoming indepent and finding her fairy tale in an unexpected and laughable way! This was a fun book that any girl should like.

    Didn't really like

    I found this book while I was looking through the sale/clearance section. The cover caught my attention and it was only $5 so I got it. I started reading and the beginning started off great and then it seemed like the book just died. I could not read it anymore, I just wasn't interested in it. I thought everything was too predictable and the writing style just didn't hold my attention. I put the book down about 3 weeks ago and just picked it up again last night and skipped straight to the last 2 chapters, erad them, and then put the book on the shelf. I read quite abit so I am always willing to try out new authors and expand but I was just not into this book or the characters. I am thinking about trying to read The Cinderella Pact and see how that goes but we will see. I would recommend this book only if you are a fan of her's or if you need something to pass the time on a flight or long trip.

    So glad I picked it up....

    As I was browsing through Barnes & Noble with my stack of books about to go through the check out line, I passed this bood in the clearence rack. The cover caught my eye b/c it's similarity to Cinderella Pack which I also read & loved. So I briefly glanced at the summerary & decided why not it was only $4! I absolutley loved this book!! I loved Genie, I loved Patty, & Todd, & I especially loved Nick! I could not put it down & couldn't wait to wake up this morning to finish it!! I'm going to recommend it to all my friends. It is worth way more then the 4 bucks I paid for it. It's a keeper in my shelf!

    Nice Proposal

    A nice proposal that was a great way to escape. This is a light read and the main character was very real and charming. Her story was offbeat and I loved the ending.
