As young women interested in politics, we often find ourselves imagining what it would be like to be part of that world in a more…public way. Being a Senator, marrying a Senator, running for office, being on the Hill full-time, but we often forget that it’s not as easy as it seems. And that’s where our December pick comes in. Party of Two is a romantic comedy that pairs a strong female attorney with an up and coming junior senator in a cake-heavy meet cute. We think you all will really enjoy ending your year with Party of Two–but we also hope it’ll get you thinking about whether what we see about politics is as “cool” as it seems.

Olivia Monroe moves to LA to finally start her own law firm. She’s got it planned out, and she’s level-headed. Then, she meets a guy at her hotel bar and later at a semi-work event. Things get complicated. 

Because he’s not just any guy. He’s the junior senator from California, and he’s an eligible bachelor, and he’s super into her.

As Max and Olivia fall for each other, she must decide how much of herself she is willing to share with the public and how to balance their very different decision making styles. 

Max is impulsive and quick to respond. Olivia is a thinker and takes her time with decisions. They both love cake, volunteering, and each other, but will they be able to take the public scrutiny? 

I’m a lover of rom-coms, especially when I’m stressed. This will be the perfect December read as we head into the brunt of the holiday season, navigate traveling home, visiting family and friends, and more.

This is the story of an adult relationship and all that comes with it. Yes, we’re talking arguments, butterflies, sex, family drama, and more, so keep that in mind. If you are interested in skipping the steamy scenes, we recommend breezing through Chapters 9 and 12. 

We hope you enjoy spending a little time with Olivia and Max. This December, we can’t wait to see you in our FB group this month to discuss the political ramifications, the swoony romance, and your favorite type of cake.
