This year, National Proposal Day and the First Day of Spring fall on March 20th. One Book By You reader decided to welcome in the season of new beginnings with a new beginning of his own—and he wanted Book By You and their personalized romance novels to help.

In this real-life romance, the hero is Jordan Tant, a soccer coach from the U.K., now coaching in Plainsboro, NJ and wildly in love with Emily, the gorgeous heroine—an avid reader of romance novels. Jordan wanted to propose to Emily in a way she’d never forget—and a way she’d never even imagined. That’s when he turned to Book By You with a special request: Would the company create a customized novel so personalized that it actually included a proposal to Emily?

Company founder Mike Pocock and his team were happy to help. Jordan gave them all the information needed to personalize the novel Love's Next Door, including his beloved’s name, hair style, eye color, and many other physical and personal attributes. Pocock explains: “In the original novel, our hero gets back in touch with a girl he admired from high school, and by the end of the novel, the now-adult pair have finally admitted their romantic feelings. One morning, the heroine notices a blue ribbon hanging from her boyfriend’s pocket. She pulls on the ribbon and discovers a ring—and the hero explains that it’s a promise ring that he hadn’t had the courage to give her when they were in high school.”

In customizing the book for Jordan and Emily, Book By You changed the story to include an inscription on the ring given by Jordan to Emily. The inscription read: "Will you marry me?" Pocock adds, “This was the last paragraph of their book so we included a highlighted box beneath the text reading: Emily, we were unable to complete the writing of this special story because, like Jordan, we await the answer to the question: Will you marry Jordan?”

Jordan confirms the plan succeeded: “She read the book and thought it was so cute and loved the story. She had no idea what was coming and was completely surprised. She said yes right away and we’ve been on top of the world ever since.” The pair thanked Book By You for helping them find an unforgettable way to start their new life together.
