** FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED **

A Beautiful Wedding  was passionate, emotional, and a whole lot of fun. In this beautiful novella, Jamie McGuire reminded me once again why Travis Maddox is and always will be my favorite bad boy.

“A Maddox boy will take you all the way to the edge, but if you go with him, he’ll follow you anywhere…

And when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever.”


Even though it had been over a year since I read Beautiful Disaster, I reconnected with the characters right from the start. Told in both Travis and Abby'**

And she ripped my closure off like a bandaid!! Son of a….

When A Beautiful Wedding showed up at my doorstep, my emotions seized. I was exited. I was thrilled. I was scared. I was indifferent. I was a whole lot of everything all at once. The only thing my eyes could see was CAUTION. Caution written in bright green neon letters….with glitter.

Why?….

Because I…am an addict, and the drug that is a Beautiful Disaster is my drug of choice. Just opening my package made my hands shake. The addiction all

Oh my gracious sakes! Talk about having your cake and eating it too!!

Just when I thought I exhausted all avenues of obtaining as much swoon-filled edible-ness of Travis Maddox I could get my hands on, I discovered this gem of a novella culminating the wedding of Travis and Abby of “Beautiful Disaster.” It begins with the events before the proposal, getting to their destination sight for the wedding, the preparations and .... ta, ta, tada ... the touching, heart tugging wedding itself

“The only thing I’m afraid of is a life without you, Pigeon.”
“Then you have nothing to be afraid of. We’re forever.”


A Beautiful Wedding follows Abby and Travis from the moment they become engaged, until a year after the wedding. We get to see inside the proposal, their time in Vegas, the actual wedding, and some time after the wedding.

Initial reaction: Decided that I'd go ahead and write a formal review of this. Yeah, I didn't expect to read this and there's a bit of a story that I'll tell when I write the full review. This was about what I expected it to be - a bit on the cheese side, had some offenses to offer to the table (misogyny chiefly, but even very few instances of casual racism...fun times, not.) But believe it or not, Travis was probably more tame in this narrative than he was in either Beautiful Disaster or Walking Disaste ...more

This novella show us what happened between Abby’s proposal in Beautiful Disaster and their actual wedding.
If you all resented not seeing Travis get married now’s your chance! (I understand you, I was one of them.)
Even if you think you've already read everything there is to read about this series and this book will bring nothing new, read it anyway.
A lot of Travis Maddox is NEVER too much Travis Maddox.

“A Maddox boy will take you all the way to the edge, but if you go with him, he’ll follow you anywhere…”

Thank you Jamie McGuire for giving us all what we so desperately needed!! This is a novella on ♥Abby and Travis’s♥ Las Vegas elopement :) It was amazing getting a look at how their wedding all went down and everything else in between! But the reason for Abby's decision to marry him kinda destroyed my heart. For Travis 😭. I mean really?? TWF... Whyyy did that have to be the deciding factor behind

Almost tempted to put this in my cash cow category (ca-ching), but since the series is so utterly horrible by itself it's being marked for this category. I will not read this. People who tell me that my review is mean, that I'm a bitch, or any of the usual crap will get laughed at and told to go away.

Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, here are my top ten reasons why I won't be reading this:


10) I don't want to know what's going on in Abby's head. I already read her POV

I read Beautiful Disaster back in 2011 and I remember it being a drama filled, angsty romance that captured my heart and wrung it out! It was an addictive and memorable read and I was thrilled with how things ended.

A Beautiful Wedding Novella is meant to fill in some of the gaps we had for Abby and Travis’ wedding. Were there cold feet, or did their intense love for each other stamp out any pre-wedding jitters? All the details of the wedding like where it happened, what they wore, and who knew are all filled

2 Stars! Did she love him, or didn't she...that's what I'm wondering?!

...and the point of this book was what?! To make up things and make what was a beautiful, but complicated love story a disaster?! I don't get it. I'm sorry, but I think I should have left this one on the shelf. Maybe I'm just too old for this kind of read.

Well i went into it being really afraid of what i will read..
And yes the start was ugh.. Frustrating.. BUT i ended up loving it like the rest of the series..
After all we are talking about Travis-f@cking-Maddox.. My favorite boy!


At first i had a problem with Abby and her 'reasons' for marrying Trav but the double POV and the constant declarations of her love for him made me finally warm up to her again after the after the arctic feelings i had for her throughout WD..

***2 Not On Board With This Stars***

I'll just make this short and sweet:

Since I work in law, I can't get on board with a book that delivers the message that if you REALLY love someone it's OK to tamper with a police investigation and commit perjury in order to save your loved one from the accountability of their involvement in a very serious matter.

Sorry, Jamie McGuire but NOOOOOPE. This really killed it for me.

Did not like Abby's reasons for marrying Travis.
♥Booklish Reviews♥

Before starting this book, I told myself over and over that this was REDEMPTION for McGuire. (Should it turn out to be a good read.)Walking Disaster wasn't up to par.
Friend: A Walking Disaster is amazing! You'll love it.
Me: *AFTER READING*

There was no redemption for Walking Disaster. This novella was worse than WD. I literally skipped through most of the lengthy paragraphs just to get to the dialogue. It seemed like I was reading filler/previous even

Dislikes:

• Wow, I really didn't like the reasons Abby wanted to get married and that she didn't tell Travis!

• Not sure if I liked Elvis or not!

• The quick switch from getting married to the anniversary. A chapter about when they were home would have segued better.

• The bachelor/bachelorette parties...really? Though I have to admit I would've loved to see you-know-who at Travis'.

• I didn't really care for the event at St. Thomas - orange and purple? bleh!


Overall:

I couldn't NOT read this book even though you can be completely satisfied without reading it. There's just something about Travis that I want to read more of so I'll probably read everything that's written about them ~or~ about the brothers. Yea, I'm ready for those stories!

Favorite quotes:

❥ “This is it,” he said.

“What?”

“I knew the second I met you that there was something about you I needed. Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was just you.”

❥ “Uh . . . I was gonna give ’er away.”

Travis’s mouth pulled to one side. “She was already mine.”

❥ "One down, forever to go."

“He will love you with everything he has for as long as you let him.”


I am a mad fan of anything featuring Travis Maddox , and although I was a little apprehensive about reading this – not wanting it to ruin the utter, utter perfection of Beautiful Disaster – it turns out I’m just way to obsessed with my #1 bad boy to stay away.

If you haven’t read Beautiful Disaster, this is going to be a little
