“Brutally, beautifully honest” — PEOPLE

Joi-Marie almost has it all; a thriving career, a supportive family, great friends, and an apartment in Manhattan. What she doesn’t have is a husband.

TheEngagementGameBookCoverAmbitious, confident, and successful, Joi-Marie believes she has it all figured out. At 28 years old, she has an enviable job as a producer, covering entertainment in New York City. Her close-knit family is loving and encouraging, and her boyfriend, Adam, is as close to perfect as you can get — except for the fact that he won’t propose.

After receiving a laundry list of advice on how to secure a proposal, even researching how to cook “engagement chicken,” Joi-Marie realizes that in the process of trying to attain her perfect life, she has slowly become a person she doesn’t recognize.

With this discovery, she must make a decision: pretend to be someone she’s not in order to have the life she envisioned or have the courage to be herself and find her happily ever after in a way she never expected.

As Joi-Marie says in her disclaimer, “The Engagement Game” is not a how-to book. Instead, it’s a hilarious critique of the patriarchal construct of marriage, the myth of marital privilege and singlism.

“The Engagement Game: Why I Said ‘I Don’t’ to Marriage and ‘I Do’ To Me” is out now.
