Party Of Two By Jasmine Guillory talks of politics, race, relationships and lots of cake. I really enjoyed this book and I definitely prefer it to Jasmine Guillory’s book, The Wedding Party (read my review here).
I’d like to thank Netgalley for providing me with an e-arc of this book, all opinions and thoughts are honest and not biased!
Introduction To Party Of Two
Olivia Monroe has just started up her own law firm and dating is definitely not on her mind. But a night at a hotel bar leads her flirting with a gorgeous man, except he’s the senator.
With Max’s sweet gestures, they soon end up in a relationship hidden from the public eye to avoid problems. But of course not everything goes to plan.
Characters Of Party Of Two
I honestly adored the banter between Olivia and Max! They’re so opposite, except maybe in their love for food, but their dialogue proved to be a fast paced read!
Olivia is a strong, independent woman and it’s a quality I loved reading about! I love how she was flawed and how race and her past came into discussion in a realistic way.
Max is sweet and outgoing, I love how passionate he is about his job. Also how open he is in acknowledging his white privilege and how he can use that to help others.
Party Of Two is quite realistic except maybe for the constant eating of food 😉
Conclusion Of Party Of Two
Overall, a sweet, fun and great summer read! I binged this within a sitting and I’d highly recommend it! A solid four star read for me. It had just the right amount of angst whilst being entertaining too. A little predictable, but it’s a romance book so I think that’s to be expected!
