A chance meeting with a handsome stranger turns into a whirlwind affair that gets everyone talking. Dating is the last thing on Olivia Monroe's mind when she moves to LA to start her own law firm. But when she meets a gorgeous man at a hotel bar and they spend the entire night flirting, she discovers too late that he is none other than hotshot junior senator Max Powell. Olivia has zero interest in dating a politician, but when a cake arrives at her office with the cutest message, she can't resist—it is chocolate cake, after all. Olivia is surprised to find that Max is sweet, funny, and noble—not just some privileged white politician she assumed him to be. Because of Max's high-profile job, they start seeing each other secretly, which leads to clandestine dates and silly disguises. But when they finally go public, the intense media scrutiny means people are now digging up her rocky past and criticizing her job, even her suitability as a trophy girlfriend. Olivia knows what she has with Max is something special, but is it strong enough to survive the heat of the spotlight?

*Starred Review* Best-selling Guillory specializes in tales of modern love featuring high-powered professionals' relationships. The fifth installment in her multicultural romance series, kicked off with The Wedding Date (2018), features Olivia Monroe, big sister to the series' first heroine, Alexa. Olivia recently moved back to California from New York to start a new law firm, and on her first night in L.A., she strikes up a conversation at the hotel bar with a very handsome, oddly familiar stranger. Assuming that he's just another L.A. actor, Olivia is surprised to see him on the news and to realize that she was flirting with hotshot U.S. Senator Maxwell Stewart Powell III. Luck brings them back together at a fundraiser where Max, who was immediately smitten with Olivia, vows to win her heart, sending her baked goods and promises that they can keep their fledgling romance a secret until Olivia is ready to go public. Being in the spotlight is not her cup of tea, but she's willing to sacrifice some privacy as long as Max can control his impulsive nature while on stage. Perfect for readers who enjoy uplifting, steamy, and diverse romances similar to those of Jamie Pope and Talia Hibbert. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
