In this all-new novella in the New York Times bestselling series, Hunter and Gretchen are finally tying the knot—but their wedding may not be the easy fairy tale they’ve dreamed of...

Someone's out to ruin Gretchen's happy-ever-after on the eve before the big day. Can she trust Hunter, the man she's given her heart to? And can she rely on her sister Daphne (the least reliable person of all!) to help her salvage things? Or is this marriage going to go down in flames before Gretchen and Hunter ever get to the altar?

In Review My Thoughts

When I first started reading this, I was admittedly a little disappointed that it wasn’t ONLY about Gretchen and Hunter’s wedding. If you read my reviews on the earlier books in this series, you know I’m not a huge fan (understatement of the year) of Daphne. I thought she was a self-centered, spoiled brat — and other less flattering things, too. I didn’t think I wanted to read any more about her. I didn’t know if she actually deserved a happily ever after, after the way she treated everyone around her throughout the book. But, I trusted the author and kept reading because I hoped she was going to give me the story I didn’t even know I wanted. And that’s exactly what she did. In hindsight, a story SOLELY about Gretchen and Hunter’s wedding would’ve been kind of boring. I think Daphne’s storyline with her life coach, Wesley, added a little extra oomph to the story and, honestly, made me enjoy it all the more. It was nice to see her redeem herself and try to rebuild her relationship with her sisters.

There was plenty of Gretchen and Hunter in this novella, too, so don’t worry. I adored this couple in their original book, Beauty and the Billionaire, so I was happy to get a little more of their love story in this novella. Gretchen was a bit of a mess in this book, but I felt like I understood where she was coming from. Planning a wedding is stressful… and she’s a bit of a perfectionist. It was hard for her to let go. I mean, baking for 200 people? That’s exactly the kind of stuff you PAY people to do for you, to lessen the stress on yourself. You know, especially when you’re marrying a billionaire and money isn’t an issue. But, I digress. Hunter and Gretchen’s love is strong. He’s still as swoony as ever. I loved getting to see them get their happily ever after. I wish there had been a little bit more sexy times, but I guess you can only do so much with 90 pages.

I am so glad Jessica decided to write another novella in her Billionaire Boys Club series. I wasn’t quite ready to give these characters up quite yet and The Wedding novella was a perfect curtain call for this great cast of characters. Since it’s under 100 pages, it’s a super quick read-in-one-sitting type of book that I thoroughly enjoyed. Fans of the series might have mixed feelings because, well Daphne didn’t exactly give us any reason to root for her throughout the series, but go in open-minded and you might enjoy it more than you expect.

FAVORITE QUOTES

We all make choices. Not all of them are good. It’s how you recover that shows what kind of person you are.

“Every moment with you doesn’t have to be a sexy moment. Just as long as it’s with you.”

About Jessica Clare

Jessica Clare (aka Jill Myles) has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the 'naughty parts' of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.

After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own - stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.

  1. I read a few of these books from this series not too long ago and really liked them. I especially loved His Royal Princess. But I also read Billionaire on the Loose which I liked. I definitely need to read more here.

      His Royal Princess was really good! One Night with a Billionaire was probably my favorite. Now I need to read the rest of her Billionaire series — the Billionaires and Bridesmaids.
