I feel like we don't always get to see black people portrayed in a loving healthy relationship in the media. I liked that Theo and Maddie has an easy going relationship where they got to just be normal. They sit on the couch eating takeout binge watching their favorite TV shows. They have discussions about being black in the workplace and their career aspirations. I feel like so often in contemporary black romance the guy is a player/bad boy. Theo is a good guy and very quirky. He loves to cook and make things from the freshest ingredients. And he loves coffee. He's definitely one of those coffee people who has a special method of making it. And it's nice to see Maddie come to appreciate these little things about him. Maddie is the pretty girl who people automatically have perceptions of. Theo allows her to show her less put together side.
This is an enemies to lovers story. When Maddie and Theo first met, they had a difference of opinions about each other and they had a hard time being in the same area with each other for the sake of their mutual friend Alexa. Too much liquor and a ride home led to a sexy night which changed everything. They still could barely stand each other but the sex was great.
Both characters have their faults that make it hard for them to get together. They frequently misunderstand each other and get their feelings hurt but in the end, they manage to find their Happily ever After.
While The Wedding Party was a solid attempt, it was my least favorite. This was for a number of reason. First, these two characters, Maddie and Theo, were introduced in The Wedding Date. In that, they are solid supporting characters. In their own book, it was hard to feel invested in them as they seemed more like an idea than three dimensional characters. Second, unlike in most of her books, there was a lot of telling vs showing. By that I mean, the characters spent more time telling us what their issues were than we, the audience seeing it and seeing how they are and react to things. Which leads to my second point, I think the secrecy of their relationship is what hindered my ability to connect with them. It would’ve been far more interesting if there relationship had gotten out midway through the book and then deal with the consequences and repercussions which there should have been some stakes to keep it engaging but there weren’t. Not really. Lastly, I wasnt a fan of the first 3 chapters which were time jumps to get readers to the real timeline. As a result, I felt like I had to stick with it longer than I’m accustomed to with a Guillory book. Usually midway through the first chapter, I’m all in and invested in the characters, a testament to her writing. Because this dragged, I found that by the time I got to chapter 4, I just wanted something, anything, to happen To make me care.
Despite this being their book, Alexa, the main protagonist from The Wedding Date, loomed large in this which showed me that Guillory had so much more she could’ve added to The Wedding Date but instead spliced it into this one.
It’s still enjoyable. But, admittedly, if I had known beforehand, I would’ve likely passed on this book.

I did enjoy reading this one and do not regret pouncing on it as soon as it was released. I was a bit indifferent at the beginning as I found the dialogues unnecessarily long and a bit boring, but I got more interesting midway.
It’s not particularly literary, the definition of chick-lit in fact, but was a fun read.
