Like so many of Guillory's novels, Party of Two is perfect summer reading. Olivia Monroe is the busiest person you'll know. Starting a new law firm in L.A. is a full-time job. She’s got no time for romance, especially if it involves a junior senator who lives in the dead center of the spotlight. But look, the man sent a cake. A chocolate cake. Some protocols must be obeyed.
Jasmine Guillory shares the books she's reading and why she loves them.
When I think “summer reading,” I think about long, lazy days in the sun, with plenty of time to dive into books. I don’t think these books need to be light and easy—often summer is when you have the time to really devote yourself to that doorstopper sized book, or that presidential biography you picked up months ago. But they do need to pull me in and grab my attention from the first chapter, to keep me from diving into the pool, taking a nap in the sun, or worrying about the state of the world. Here are four books that do just that. —Jasmine Guillory
This is not your typical presidential biography, and that’s a compliment. It’s compelling, accessible, and funny, but also deeply researched and incredibly educational.
Island Affair by Priscilla Oliveras
This charming romance will make you feel like you’re on vacation in Key West, even if you haven’t left your apartment in months. Make yourself a fruity cocktail and dive in.
The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon
This book is smart and fun and engaging, and will make you feel like you’re having a good gossip over a bottle of wine or two with your best friends.
One to Watch by Kate Stayman-London
If you either love or mock The Bachelorette, you won’t be able to put this book down. This is a fictional behind the scenes on a TV dating show, and it is wildly entertaining, but also thoughtful and full of emotion.
