That Boy ends with an engagement... That Wedding picks up right where it leaves off.

Following Jaydn and Phillip’s engagement was just as fun, emotional and entertainment as the first book. Reading the book the first time was fabulous. Listening to it on audiobook was even better!

Phillip and J.J. are meant to be. It’s taken her a long time to see it, but these best friends belong together.

Planning a wedding isn’t easy. In fact, it’s very stressful. Jaydn finds it to be overwhelming.

5 I love this series Stars

Jaydn and Phillip are finally engaged, they have overcome their obstacles and are ready to spend the rest of their lives together. Oh if only it were that easy.

JJ has finally realized Philip is the guy for her, but she still has other issues she has never dealt with. That Wedding tells the story of Jaydn’s journey to her happily ever after with her prince. JJ is forced to finally deal with her parents deaths, planning her dream wedding, changing jobs, and moving.

I can’t wait to marry that boy. The boy I’ve loved my whole life. The boy who knows what a freak I am and who loves me in spite of it. I smile and walk slowly down the aisle, like I’m supposed to, and take his hands. When this is over, I’ll be his wife.

I loved this book. It is the follow up from "That Boy" and if you loved that this is a must read. This book was so good, but to me "That Boy" was one of the best books I ever read and this was "only" an amazing novel. Going a bit nerdy here I would speculate that this book has higher rating due to selection (that is only those who really liked That Boy continue on and read this one and they naturally adore this one as well).

“Love is friendship gone mad.”

Yay! I was so excited to jump into another adventure with Jayden, Phillip, Danny, and Lori! These are some of the most lovable characters ever. I always compare this series to watching your favorite movie or chick flick. That movie that you leave in your DVD player for weeks and replay it over and over. I have them in paperback and also on audiobook and have already listened to them both multiple times. It's like audiobook crack. Freaking hilarious!

“Love is friendship gone mad”

I fell in love with best friends Jaydyn, Phillip and Danny in That Boy, and was so happy to finally get back to them with this book. The story picks up immediately after the ending of That Boy. Jaydyn (JJ) is now engaged to the boys she loves (in the interests of not spoiling the first book I’m not going to say to who), and is preparing to embark upon the next stage of her life – marriage. Starting with the perfect wedding.

Jillian Dodd has completely knocked my socks off with this debut series. Just to think two weeks ago I didn't even know these books existed. Thank God they found me. That Wedding picks up immediately where That Boy left off. We finally get to see Phillip and JJ together in every sense of the word and boy are they "together", alot ;-)

Though I didn't think it were possible, I fell head over sockless heels in love with Phillip even more. In That Boy, he turned me into a pile of goo. In That Weddin

First of all I'd like to say that I really enjoyed this book, not as much as the first one though, but still I had fun reading this. However there were parts that just made me quite annoyed and frustrated and I think I just can't really overlook them this time - but maybe that could just be me. Ha!

3.5 stars...Very sweet finish to a lovely story! Although I did enjoy That Boy more, I had fun following their journey through wedding plans, cold feet, couplescounseling, and finally-- resolution in That Wedding.

I was happy to see the transformation of JJ's character in the end and I enjoyed the concepts of the unbreakable bonds of friendship, and always stoping to smell the roses. Charming series!

So, I'd like to be able to rename this entire series to 'That Book I Want to Throw at the Wall Multiple Times When Reading,' but I doubt that that's going to happen. You all remember the happy couple, Jadyn and Phillip from 'That Boy' (If you managed to forget the most narcissistic character ever written after reading 'That Boy,' I congratulate you) and 'That Wedding' picks up from 'That Boy' as if it's gone to another chapter rather than a separate book, which works. What doesn't work is the fa ...more

So i am sorry but i was really disappointed with this book. i seriously LOVED the first one, but "that wedding" just wasnt for me.

While i normally am a person who finishes a book in one sitting, especially a sequel i have been looking forward to, it took me literally weeks to finish this one, because there were times i was just too bored to keep on reading. it got to a point, where i would download other books, finish them and then get back to "that wedding", which is something very unusual for

3.5 stars - I'm sorry Jillian, but I just didn't like this book as much as the first one, which I gave 5 stars hands down. Honestly, I didn't start really liking it until near the end. Disclaimer: The following review is not a "bashing" of the book, but a polite explanation of WHY I didn't love this book because I did, in fact, enjoy the book very much - just not nearly as much as the first one.

5 stars!!

“To the nights you’ll never remember with the people you’ll never forget.”

That Wedding is the sequel to That Boy, whilst That Boy covered the 22 year life span of Jadyn, Phillip and Danny, this book covers just a few short months of hilarious wedding planning and “That Wedding”. It may be a few short months, but this book is packed, I absolutely loved it, I have laughed so much reading this book. Having not long got married myself I could really associate wit

So there were things I liked about his book, and things I didn't like. I definitely liked That Boy way more than this book and I kinda of wish I hadn't read this book because it effects the way I feel about certain characters.

So here's what I liked:

1. Phillip. He's amazing, probably the sweetest fictional male character ever. He is so devoted to Jayden and always has been. He's definitely her knight in shining armor. However, I kind of thought he was a little too laid back at times when Jayden

Okay, this may not be a 4 or 5 star read for everyone, but it was for me. How lucky to marry your best friend. I'm not talking about someone you've dated for a while and now consider your best friend and you get married. I'm talking about someone you've grown up with, shared all the teen angst with, gone to college and shared all the college craziness

It's over! I'm so sad that I've finished book. Truly, if I had it my way, there would be endless amounts of Jadyn, Phillip, and Danny. This series was perfect and I don't often say that about any book. It was a breath of fresh air to read a series that didn't center itself on drama, but indulged in things like love, friendship, and happiness.

I wanted to re-live my love for this series, so I made them a playlist.

4 1/2 stars

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 wed

Before I start I have to say that I think That Boy was absolutely perfect and is a great stand alone book :)

I knew before I even started That Wedding it would not be as good as the first book, because what happens after two people have already become a couple and engaged!? no excitement and no angst, that's what happens. And I was right! this book is literally is all about the wedding. (which I guess is okay since it is called That Wedding)

Possibly my new favorite chic lit book. I was done with chic lit for the time being because I started getting into the paranormal romance and urban fantasy type books. But Jillian has brought me back into the contemporary romance once again. I need more books just like this. I was laughing, crying, and falling in love along with JJ. Such a beautiful written book and I was definitely emotionally attached to the story from the first book, That Boy.

Jillian Dodd has a knack for writing superb swoonworthy boys. Both Phillip and Danny are back in this sequel and are just as good, if not better, than they were in the original.

That Wedding picks ups right where That Boy left off. JJ and her prince have recently gotten engaged and it seems that everyone around them wants the wedding planned now. That, thrown in with obstacles such as couples counseling, exes, and not dealing with certain pasts, round out this story.

Oh my goodness! Jillian Dodd is freaking awesome! I’m gonna move to wherever she lives and we are gonna be BFFs! My logic: Her characters are so realistic that she must pull some of her content from her real life. Therefore, she must resemble her characters in some way. Therefore, she must be the coolest person ever. Therefore, she is my new BFF. Jillian, I hope this news excites you as much as it excites me :)

Okay, first of all I have to say that I really enjoyed That Boy and that I think Jillian Dodd is a very talented writer. However, the format that she used in That Boy did not work in the sequel That Wedding. Why? Because there was really not much to be told in That Wedding. All you have is Jayden planning a wedding, Jayden freaking out and having second thoughts in relation to Phillip, and Jayden and Phillip having sex every other page. That is it!

Oh...these books are little diamonds in the rough. I loved everything about this book. Book 1 is "That Boy" which was a fabulous read. In "That Wedding" we meet up with the same characters. I was constantly laughing out loud, it had a couple of unexpected events, the characters are so lovable...despite their flaws, and it is easy to lose yourself in this story. I found myself sharing funny parts with co-workers. The STD scene still cracks me up followed by 8-10 STD jokes....."How do herpes leave ...more
