Feature: Party of Two by Jasmine Guillory

Happy Book Birthday to Jasmine Guillory! Party of Two, the latest in the Wedding Date series, is available today!

I have heard nothing but wonderful things about Guillory's books and am definitely in the mood for some lighter fare of late (hence yesterday's post!). Here's a little bit about Party of Two from Goodreads:

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?

Note that while the books are connected, this is a series in the loosest sense! Think circle of friends rather than having to read them in order. (Though from what I hear, once you read one you'll definitely want to dive into the others!)

While it certainly stinks not being able to go to author events, it's pretty cool that the wealth of virtual events being hosted right now are available to anyone who wants to attend. Guillory is doing a number of them, I encourage you to check the list out here

Order Party of Two from your favorite indie via Bookshop!
