Am I going to ruin everything?
Or is it just a case of cold feet?

Fabulous sequel to That Boy. True to the form of the first book, it is written in diary style through the thoughts of the heroine, Jade/Jayden/Princess (Phillip’s name for her) and she is as crazy as ever.
Although this one wasn’t quite the emotional ride of the first one, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. Where That Boy spanned 22 years, the whole life of Jayden James Reynolds and her two best friends, Phillip and Danny, That Wedding is basically just four months, the planning of the wedding. There were times during this book that my cheeks hurt from smiling so much and there were a few scenes that were so funny I think I was blushing…STD’s you will know when you read it. This was definitely not clean, sexually, like book 1. Phillip and Jade were doing it non-stop very creatively, but it was all implied not described.
Phillip is the BOMB, enough said. Jade conflicted me. She was wild, but so honest about her faults. At times she made me mad, (view spoiler)
One thing I have noticed about this author, Jillian Dodd, when she writes a BIG event in the story such as the proposals from book 1, Naughty Dream Week, bachelorette party, or the wedding- the details are phenomenal. I am not only talking about the writing, but it is the ideas that are just perfect. The venues, the vows, the gift baskets, finding THE dress, the bride and groom gifts to each other…it makes me want to go do all my big life events again and use Jillian Dodd as my planner. I mean I am gushing on how personal all these events were made to the characters.
One of my favorite touching moments of the story, although it wasn’t made a big deal in the book(view spoiler)
Ready for book 3, I think there will be one!! Call me crazy, I felt some foreshadowing for book 3, but I think the antibiotic Jade took might have a big effect.
