August 2019 Indie Next List
“Maddie hates Theo’s snooty attitude. Theo hates Maddie’s snide comments. Alexa is their best friend, and they’re both in her wedding party. Neither knows how they’re going to deal with each other’s presence in the months to come, but as things might, their resentment turns to lust, and possibly something more. There’s one main rule: Alexa must never find out about their secret trysts. Playful, sexy, and sweet, The Wedding Party is another romantic bullseye hit from Guillory.”

Winter 2019 Reading Group Indie Next List
“The world Jasmine Guillory has created is full of the charm and winning coincidences of any good story, yet grounded by the everyday obstacles and failings we all relate to. Theo and Maddie, who share a mutual friend, Alexa, and little else, find themselves entangled in what begins as physical attraction, but quickly becomes something more. Unfortunately, egos, insecurities, and the sheer inability to know what you want, let alone ask for it clearly, conspire to keep these two opposites from attracting. Luckily, their friends and their feelings keep them from ruining a good thing.”
— Lillian Li, Literati Bookstore, Ann Arbor, MI
Maddie and Theo have two things in common: 1. Alexa is their best friend. 2. They hate each other.
