Title:    A Proposal They Can’t Refuse
Author:    Natalie Caña
Genre:  Romance  
Rating: 3.2 out of 5

Kamilah Vega is desperate to convince her family to update their Puerto Rican restaurant and enter it into the Fall Foodie Tour. With the gentrification of their Chicago neighborhood, it’s the only way to save the place. The fly in her mofongo–her blackmailing abuelo says if she wants to change anything in his restaurant, she’ll have to marry the one man she can’t stand: his best friend’s grandson.

Liam Kane spent a decade working to turn his family’s distillery into a contender. Now he and his grandfather are on the verge of winning a national competition. Then Granda hits him with a one-two punch: he has cancer and he has his heart set on seeing Liam married before it’s too late. And Granda knows just the girl…Kamilah Vega.

If they refuse, their grandfathers will sell the building that houses both their businesses. With their futures on the line, Kamilah and Liam plan to outfox the devious duo, faking an engagement until they both get what they want. But soon, they find themselves tangled up in more than either of them bargained for.

The food in this book sounded fantastic!  So did the whiskey, and I don’t even like whiskey. Unfortunately, that was the only thing fantastic about this. The Vega family was pretty horrible. They treated Kamilah horribly, and she did the same to them—including some real whoppers (now and in the past) she told that she tried to justify. She was so self-absorbed, she did whatever she wanted and then realized it might be a problem for someone else. Liam wasn’t much better. And the way their grandfathers manipulated them? Really not okay.

 Natalie Caña loves Hamilton. A Proposal They Can’t Refuse is her debut novel.
