Described as “frank and spirited” by Politics and Prose, The Engagement Game recounts how Joi-Marie thought she had it all — thanks to her plum job at ABC News, tight-knit group of friends and a loving family. But when her boyfriend wouldn’t propose, she decided to play the game, The Engagement Game.
