"Mitch was the glue that kept our group together and sane. Walker and Randy were both in the Army and Mitch usually kept Mags and I company while they were gone for training or other military crap I knew nothing about. Their first deployment while inevitable, we just had no idea when it was actually going to happen. It was one of the reasons Mags and Randy had decided to get married right after she graduated from college......"

We open with Cali and a hysterical one night stand with a blind date.

I really enjoyed this novella. It is a prequel to the other two books in this series and you truly do not have to read them to understand this at all.

I have not had the opportunity to read the other two books in this series so I personally felt this was a great intro to the characters. It gives you a sense of who they are beforehand.

You can sense the sisterhood between Charli and Mags in this novella. It’s a very sweet and heartfelt friendship. I smiled a lot throughout the story until we got to

This is my first time reading this author, and I have been trying to figure out why it took me so long! This is a great story! Cali is best friends with Mags, who decides she's going to call of her wedding. What follows is a ton of fun, watching these friends interact as they get ready for the big day. The character development is fantastic, and a fast paced, well written, hilarious storyline flows smoothly. The hilarious interactions between Cali and anybody, had me dying laughing.

Looking for a romance that is funny, filled with drama, endearing and breath takingly beautiful to read? Then this is the romance for you. A prequel to the Crashing Down series this book gives us the mindset of everyone before the wedding and on how Cali was helping her best friend cope with the impending deployment of her fiance and Cali's friend.
Cali forever dating the wrong men finally finds the one in the most unsuspecting ways. I mean just when you think she is going i one direction bam we

This is a short prequel to Crashing Back Down, you get a play by play of Cali's life. Her quirky humour and rotten luck in finding mister right. You get introduced to her gang of friends Mar and Randy, Walker and Mitch that are all in the series. Also get to see Mar and Randy plan and get married. I loved this it was great to catch up with these friends again.

The only way I can describe this novella is bittersweet. My heart was in constant conflict. Having read the Crashing series, I already knew how this story would end and it made reading this short piece of Randy and Mags’ life that much more emotional. I really enjoyed Cali’s voice. She is fun, sassy, and absolutely loyal. I loved the way she and Mags took care of one another and it was made that much sweeter by the way she stood up for Mags and shared in her wedding day so completely. Their frie ...more

Crashing: The wedding 4*

Just wow my only problem with this novella it was over wayyyyyy too soon. This is my honest review and I only hope you enjoy the story as much as I did. Kirsten Hope Mazzola I think is going to become one of my new favourite authors. For me the cover says it all its fun and funky highly enjoyable story.

I loved the way KHM wrote Crashing: The Wedding: Cali's Story it reads a little like a diary of events in Cali's life starting with the blind date from hell and ending wit

I am a pretty big fan of Walker and Mag’s story that takes place in Crashing Back Down and Falling Back Together, so picking this book up was a no brainer. I remember Mag’s best friend quite well and was looking forward to getting inside her head a little bit and seeing what makes her work so well in the other two books.

The Best Parts:
What did I just get myself into? I knew this happened before the Crashing series, which I haven’t read yet, but this story. I personally think this NEEDS to be read before the others. What this story sets up for the series is love.

We get to see everything from Cali’s POV and all the happiness that is in Mags’ life but then we get to see the downfall before going into Mags’ brain in the rest of the series. I truly think this was tastefully done and in a way that had you swooning w

Received a copy of this book for an honest review from the author...

I almost didnt take this book to read as i thought it was the third book in the series but it is actually a prequel book and can be read as a stand alone. I am so glad that I did read this novella, it will make you want to run out buy the other two books in the series to find out what happens as at the end of this novella your heart will be hurting and the tears will be falling.

I fell in love with all the characters in this book

Crashing the Wedding is #0.5 is the prequel in the Crashing Series

This is the first book in this series I have read...and I cant wait to read the rest of the series

The novella was a really great read, gripped me and gave me just the right amount of lure that I want to continue the series to see where it leads ...

I wished Crashing the Wedding had been a full length novel as I really enjoyed it and didn't want it to end...

I don't want to give away any of the story in this review ... with it only b

This is the prequel to Crashing Back Down and is about Randy and Mag’s wedding. It was a fun quick read. It was great to get to read about Randy and Mag’s wedding and how Cali met Kyle. I love this series and was happy to have another book in it. I liked that this book was from Cali’s point of view which was different than the other books in this series. It was fun getting to read more about the characters and learn more of how they all fit and got to know each other. I highly recommend this boo ...more

This is a prequel novella to the Crashing series, but can be read as a standalone. It takes place before Crashing Back Down
In this book, we are introduced to Cali and her group of friends. Ms. Mazzola packed a lot into this little book! I loved getting an insider's view of the different friendships and how Cali deals with each of them. Also, we get to see all of the excitement and anxiety involved in getting ready for her wedding. I was laughing out loud in several places! I love Cali and even a

This was a great introduction to the Crashing series. It took us to the beginning and told us more of Cali's story.
Cali is always dating the wrong men, this story begins with a hilarious blind date! But who has time for dating when your best friend is planning a wedding?! Cali meets someone at the wedding, will he be the one? You will have to read it to find out.
This was a great book it took us back to the beginning and introduces us to Mags, Cali, Randy, Mitch, and Walker.

Crashing is a fast paced, funny novella, that sits perfectly at the start of the Crashing series.
I really like Cali and glad we got something from her. I also like that this novella gave us an insight into Mags & Randy's wedding before the devastating ending.

I would have LOVED more of this, this could have easily been turned into a full length novel that I would have devoured as I really want more of Cali & Kyle, especially Kyle.

All of a sudden this was over & I was like "WTH!! Where's the next book?" It is a very quick read that tells the story of Cali, the best friend of the bride. Cali is there for her friend to make sure this wedding goes on. Along the way, there are fights, making up, and hooking up! The action was fast and you fall in love with the characters before you know it. I definitely can't wait to read the next book in the series!

A great and humorous introduction to the series...
This book is a great read to introduce you to the series. A wonderful combination of humor, mishaps in wedding plans and the maid of honor desperately trying to get the whole shebang back on track.

So, I haven't read the rest of the series, so this was a good start. It introduced the characters well. It was way too short though! And the ending, from a high to a low, was bittersweet. I will have to get the rest of the series now.

This is a story of great friends who just "get" each other. And are there for each other through the good times and the very bad times. They know how to defend each other and protect. But what happens when the unthinkable happens?....Guess you'll have to keep reading to find out.

Hi! Thanks for dropping in...

You want to know more about me? Well, let's see...
I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time "day job" and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.
