Reviewed by Danielle Urban for Readers' Favorite Dangled Carat by Hilary Grossman is one sensational read. Readers everywhere will be pulled in like a moth to a flame. This funny and romantic story will take readers on a journey, a journey deep into the lives of one very interesting couple. Women know men delay when it comes to full commitment. But then imagine the struggle for the man who is afraid of commitment. His girlfriend fights with the emotions and the hardships of being attached to a man who needs time to take on the full commitment train ride. Unlike most men, the one who fears it the most shows his love and care the most to his woman. Then there's how fast they both connected with one another. Talking and just being together is easy, but, like every other woman, Hilary wants the next step to happen. The suspense of that ever happening makes this the most exciting novel yet. Hilary Grossman has the talent of taking her readers straight from their seats and deep into the heart of her fictional world. Fiction with the most realistic issues any couple faces are all beautifully woven into a hilarious and sweet read. Dangled Carat is a story of how one woman meets a man, who instantly becomes her boyfriend. Their connection is strong enough to drag readers right into the pages. This novel was so good that it's hard to believe it was indeed fiction. The characters and their struggles were so lifelike that I could see myself inside their shoes. I loved it! Overall, I highly recommend this romance to readers everywhere. The conflicts are easy to relate to and the characters will leave readers laughing and crying throughout the novel. I definitely look forward to reading more by Hilary Grossman in the future.

4.5 stars Did I enjoy this book: I really did enjoy Ms. Grossman’s memoir, Dangled Carat. It was a wonderful read that I think many women will relate to. It’s an easy read that will hook you from the beginning. Although it is a memoir, it reads like chick lit. You will want to see if she can get Marc, the commitment-phobe, to marry her. As I was reading Dangled Carat, I felt as if I was sitting with Ms. Grossman, having a glass of wine, and gabbing with my friend, hearing her story. There were a few times I just shook my and wondered what Hilary was thinking. Then there were moments that I was giddy and so happy. There were a few moments that I wanted to be there to comfort her. And there were a few moments that I was mad at Hilary and wanted to smack her. One moment in particular . . . but I’m not going to spoil it for you. (Hilary — you know what I’m referring to!!!) I liked everyone. I don’t want to call them characters because they aren’t. They are friends and family that went through this with Hilary. These friends seem like such a crew, caring and loyal. It was fun to “hang out” with them throughout Hilary and Marc’s story. I would love to meet Hilary, her mom, and Marc. I feel like I already know them just from reading this book. You will feel the same way after you read it as well. Would I recommend it: Absolutely! I loved it. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. From the author's description of the book,  I had no idea that this was a memoir.  It wasn't until I read Ms. Grossman's acknowledgements at the end of the book that I picked up on  that tidbit.  My opinion of the book changed quite a bit and I had to toss my review notes after learning it was a memoir.   In this day and  age, it is remarkable that Hilary stuck it out with Marc for five years waiting for that marriage proposal.  Even more amazing is that she did so despite the repeated warnings of Marc's family and friends.  Another eye-opener was that Hilary, as well as both her and Marc's friends, seemed to think that getting married was THE necessary culmination of a long-term relationship.  Although it might not have been true in real life, it felt that Hilary put her life on hold while wishing and waiting for that marriage proposal.  Hilary's patience can either  been seen as virtuous in that she gave Marc the time and space needed to commit or it can be viewed as desperate and insecure.    There are some humorous anecdotes of their relationship and some irritating head-scratchers as well.  For all the claims that Hilary felt she and Marc were partners, she certainly jumped on the ridicule-Marc-for-not-having-proposed train her friends were on (opening scene).  That scene certainly didn't make me feel that Marc and Hilary were a team, and I wouldn't have asked her to marry me after that!  Marc must have a great sense of humor. Giving the reader more insight into Marc as a person or somehow sharing his point of view would have enhanced the tale greatly.  Ms. Grossman's teaser ending was well played. Overall an interesting and enjoyable read that ultimately ends in a HEA and will probably give hope to many young women who are searching for Mr. Right. ***Review has been done in  conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
