Good book. When Georgia's on-air proposal is rejected by her boyfriend, she flees the studio in humiliation. Then she finds out that she still needs to honor her contract with the radio station even though there is no wedding and honeymoon to cover. So the station manager, Zander, comes up with the idea of the Year of Georgia, where she takes that time to do the things she has always wanted to do and reinvent herself. I liked both Georgia and Zander. Georgia started out wondering what was so wrong with her that her boyfriend didn't want to take the next step with her. But when Zander came up with the idea of reinventing herself she didn't much care for that, not feeling that there was that much wrong with her. I liked the way that she started out by trying things that they thought she ought to try, but gained enough confidence in herself to start going after things she wanted to do. I liked the way that each adventure showed Georgia something else about herself that added to her emerging confidence. I also enjoyed the developing relationship with Zander. They started out very professional, but the more things they did together the more the lines blurred. Georgia also started to see past the walls that Zander kept up to keep people at a distance and to fall for the man behind those walls. I liked the way she started trying to get to him. Her belly dancing lesson was fantastic and I loved the description of what she did.

Zander was an interesting guy. I loved the empathy he showed Georgia immediately after the radio fiasco when he helped her get out of the building. Besides needing to save his job by rescuing the radio promotion he also wanted to help Georgia get through this experience. Having suffered a similar humiliation he had a great deal of sympathy for her. He coped by shutting down emotionally and not allowing anyone to get close to him. He works longs hours and spends his free time doing long distance running. He doesn't expect to find his time with Georgia starting to chip away at those walls. When Georgia shows up at one of his races he is stunned and doesn't know quite what to do. He also finds that his attraction to her gets a little out of hand which scares him into withdrawing again. He also finds that he can't forget the feelings she has stirred up, but is still afraid to risk himself again.

I loved seeing how, over the course of the year, both Georgia and Zander learned more about each other and themselves. I liked the fact that it was Georgia who had the courage to be the first to go after what she wanted and risk it all. I really loved Zander's big moment at the end and how he finally had the courage to go after what he really wanted. ( )

Georgia Stone proposes marriage to her boyfriend of one year LIVE on a radio station. What she doesn't anticipate is him saying NO. (Can you imagine that? LIVE on air with a no...??) She's devastated, of course. She quickly exists the building through the elevator where she meets Zander Rush.

He helps her by helping her escape out of the building, unnoticed and humiliated.

What Georgia is unaware of is Zander is actually the one that had the idea of proposing LIVE on air through a Valentine's day radio promotion.

She signed a contract so the contract is binding. This contract says Georgia and husband is supposed to come back in a year to give radio listeners an update on their live together. 50,000 dollars was to go to her and husband for a honeymoon.

Since there will be no wedding or honeymoon, Zander comes up with another idea of using the money for Georgia to have a year all to herself. For her to do everything she's ever wanted to do but couldn't afford.

Zander has to attend the same classes and vacations as Georgia for him to document The Year of Georgia for the listeners. He's there through everything. They do everything from cooking classes to salsa dancing.

I thought it was brilliant for the female to be proposing marriage to the boyfriend and LIVE on a radio station. I liked that storyline. It was different than others I've read.

This book was just okay for me.

I thought Georgia was kinda annoying. In some parts, she was verging on stalker-ish to me.

I also didn't like the title of this book. I don't think it fit the book.

Just a 3 star for me. **Shrugs** ( )

When a local radio station promotes a leap year on air Valentines day proposal contest for a "lucky" female listener Georgia's live is turned upside down. Her boyfriend not only says no but goes to great lengths to explain why. On top of this Georgia signed a contract allowing the the station to follow he for a year to cover and fund wedding preparations. Together with Zander, the executive who initiated the contest, Georgia embarks on a year long quest to meet her contractual obligations and hopefully find herself along the way. I really enjoyed this novel and the two main characters, though I wanted to shake some sense into each of them at various points. The premise was interesting since I'm sure almost everyone has seen a proposal on TV and wondered what would happen if it was rejected. I read this pretty much in one sitting and would recommend this enjoyable book. ( )
