Get ready to swoon--the next installment of Jasmine Guillory's beloved romance series, The Wedding Date, is almost here!

Party of Two
by Jasmine Guillory 

A chance meeting with a handsome stranger turns into a whirlwind affair that gets everyone talking.

Dating is the last thing on Olivia Monroe's mind when she moves to LA to start her own law firm. But when she meets a gorgeous man at a hotel bar and they spend the entire night flirting, she discovers too late that he is none other than hotshot junior senator Max Powell. Olivia has zero interest in dating a politician, but when a cake arrives at her office with the cutest message, she can't resist--it is chocolate cake, after all.

Olivia is surprised to find that Max is sweet, funny, and noble--not just some privileged white politician she assumed him to be. Because of Max's high-profile job, they start seeing each other secretly, which leads to clandestine dates and silly disguises. But when they finally go public, the intense media scrutiny means people are now digging up her rocky past and criticizing her job, even her suitability as a trophy girlfriend. Olivia knows what she has with Max is something special, but is it strong enough to survive the heat of the spotlight?

Party of Two by Jasmine Guillory
Rating: ★★★★☆

As always, a copy of this book was provided by the author or publisher in exchange for my honest review. This does not effect my opinion in any way. 

While my favourite in Jasmine Guillory's delightfully swoon-worthy and steamy The Wedding Date series is still, without a doubt, The Proposal, Party of Two was a definite improvement upon the previous two novels. It was so charming and fiery and utterly likable. The characters were just the right combination of flawed and easy to root for--Guillory's always at her best when her characters are well-developed, and this is no exception. In-fact, I daresay that this had some of the best character development of the series.

(Since The Proposal, at least.)

As always, I couldn't put this book down and found it left me in a particularly romantic mood upon finishing it. Party of Two had this inexplicable quality to it that felt dizzy and addictive. I couldn't stop nodding my head at specific points, or grinning stupidly at others, and felt myself swoon in all the right places.

This was kind of everything I wanted and needed it to be. Party of Two is truly irresistible. And fun. AND SO WORTH THE READ.

Party of Two was an absolutely sweet, mood-boosting, romance that hit all the right marks for me. It also gave me a serious sweet tooth. Ultimately, I found this novel to be a real standout in Guillory's backlist. Like me, readers will become completely engrossed in the love life of Olivia and Max. And, like me, they will be thoroughly smitten by the ride that is Party of Two.
