Publisher's Summary

A chance meeting with a handsome stranger turns into a whirlwind affair that gets everyone talking in this New York Times best seller. 

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, as 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?

Waste of time

I couldn’t even finish it. It put me in a bad mood knowing that was what I was listening to. The narrator kept confusing g her accents. Don’t waste your dollars!

Love Guillory

Loved this book. Guillory is my new favorite. Her characters are smart, and contemporary. Her themes are relevant to current issues. Also if you love food, Guillory does not disappoint.

Can We Get a Movie?

What a beautiful love story! Once again Jasmine Guillory has captivated us with amazing characters and stories of love that we can all relate to! And Janina Edwards’ narration is the perfect ... the words really come alive and capture the emotion of these fictional people that I now feel like are old friends of mine! I would most definitely recommend!

Incredibly disappointed

Squealed when I’m saw Guillory had written another. Have LOVED the series. Read each one twice. HATED this one. No chemistry between two main characters. Saddened to see little to no mention of previous characters especially when it would have been additive. Flat narration. - horrible southern accent, indistinguishable voices. Limited love scenes which had been so well done meaningful in past. Respect what author is trying to do but this, for me, was a real miss

Narration

I will start off by saying the narrator has a wonderful voice. I have heard her on other stories and overall I enjoy hearing her read on Audible . However, for this book her voice was way to mature. I felt like Olivia’s voice and her friend/ law partners voice should have been someone a little younger. At times when Olivia and Ellie were having conversations it didn’t feel like the narrators voice went with theirs.

Thoughtful Story

This story was a little slower than her usual work but I still loved it once it picked up. I can't wait for her next story.

Warning》unexpected explicit sex

I felt the overall story had a lot of potential to have a real conversation about differences among people who love each other and ways to work out those differences. The topic and situation was timely.. However, I was shocked by the explicit sex scenes, especially in an audiobook playing in my home. I had read Royal Holiday previously, so I was very surprised by the details in Party of Two, it should have been labeled as such. I will beware of other books by this author.

Was she hungry!?

I love Guillory's work and was front and center for Party of Two but I just didn't love this work the protagonist came off like a clueless teenager whose never had a relationship, instead of late 30s Attorney. But my biggest issue with the story wasn't the characters but the level of concentration put on food, my husband even commented "the author of this book should snack before she writes". Again, I love Guillory's work and will continue to support but this just wasn't it.

Loved this

The author and reader are two of my favorite. Ms. Guillory always writes a lovely romance with complete and interesting characters. There are always very real and complex issues and best of all the stories are entertaining and thought provoking.

Moves Slowly

Loved the story but moved slowly with too much (for me) talking through the same feelings. might be perfect for some readers though :)
