Party of Two was one of those books that I smiled almost the entire time I was reading it. I just really enjoyed everything about it.
I liked the story and that these two people who were so different could make it work. I do admit that Olivia’s caution and Max’s impulsiveness may have been a bit over the top, but I did enjoy these two characters. Olivia seemed to have very low expectations of men, which I understand, but I did enjoy Max throwing her off. He was never quite what she expected and I think that added to the fun of the story.
This is told in the third person and that was the right choice. I honestly think that being in Olivia and Max’s heads might have been a little too much. Especially Olivia, she seems like a real over-thinker. What I really enjoyed, and this is a trend I have noticed in quite a few rom-coms lately, is that Max respected Olivia. Max didn’t expect her to give up her job, and in fact her liked her more because she challenged him.
This was a great book and I highly encourage you to pick it up! I enjoyed reading a romance between two mature adults that knew what they wanted.
