Millie’s boyfriend James gets offered a job in Singapore, he accepts, thinking that she’ll give up her job and go with him. Only Millie gets offered a work secondment to New York which is too good an opportunity to turn down. When she arrives in the city, she soon discovers that she’s not the only one new in town; her ex-boyfriend, Rob, is back, and he’s separated from his wife.

It’s time for Millie to work out what she wants from life. She’s got to decide whether she’s Team James or Team Rob as she gets her very own American Proposal.

About the book:
This is the third book in the Millie series, the first being Millie and The American University and then that’s followed by Millie and the American Wedding. (To find reviews of previous books click on the titles).

Now from previous books we know that British born Millie and American born Rob met at an American University and fell in love. But a turn of events had Millie running back to England broken hearted.

Years later Millie is invited to back to America to attend her best friend Kristen’s wedding. Here she bumps into Rob. Those feelings just come flooding back and secrets come out about why Millie left. Yet again Millie and Rob part ways a little broken hearted (ok, so mainly my heart was broken) only this time Millie had met James!

In this book, Millie and the American Proposal, we have Millie happily in love with James. Whose work has him travelling the world, Millie finds that when she visits him she is often left to alone sight-seeing, but James spoils her rotten with shopping trips, nice dinners and nights out to the opera.

Finally James is back in England, back in their home and they spend the perfect Christmas together. Only soon after Christmas is over James is telling Millie all about having to move to Singapore for a year. He was expecting Millie to move with him, although Millie doesn’t want to become a kept woman. Millie likes her job and doesn’t want to quit, but she also can’t face another year having a long-distance relationship. So they sadly break up.

So when the opportunity to go to New York for work comes up, Millie jumps at the chance. That way she can get over James.

Only when she arrives in New York and she meets her best friend Kristen and her husband, she comes face to face with Rob, and now Rob is a divorcee… Millie and Rob spend time together and Millie tells everyone who asks they are only friends nothing else, but why can she get Rob out of her every waking thought?

But it seems James isn’t going to give up on Millie so easy…. So who will Millie choose…. Rob or James?

What I thought:
Firstly, I have to confess that I ADORE Millie and I’ve enjoyed the previous books so, SO much. When Rob and Millie parted ways in the second book, although it was “the right thing to do” I was heartbroken. I’m 100 percent TEAM ROB!

Getting the chance to read Millie and the American Proposal I squealed and jumped straight in. They are so well written and so engrossing that I finished within hours of starting it. Although Millie had just broken up with James, as soon as I found out that Rob was no longer with his wife I was beyond excited. Millie and Rob ARE MEANT TO BE! End of.

One of the reasons I love Millie is because she is just a normal girl who loves a drink. She is so much fun and you genuinely care about what happens to her.

I really enjoyed getting to know Amber a little more in this book, she is an absolute fire cracker who had me laughing so much.

These books are fun, flirty, hilariously funny and compelling. Absolutely unputdownable and I never want the books to end.

I think I’m a little in love with Millie and Annabel. Her writing style is perfect and I would read her to do lists!
