That Boy and That Wedding are two books that I’ve read, re-read and re-read again. To say that I was anxiously awaiting That Baby to release would be an understatement. The wait was long, and as soon as this book became I available I dropped what I was doing and picked it up! Phillip and Jadyn are one of my favorite couples and Danny Diamond is one of the best fictional characters ever! I loved seeing this trio back and together. They’ve been through a lot- childhood, high school,

I’m a huge fan of this series. Book one sits proudly on my favorite shelf here on Goodreads, while a signed copy sits on a shelf at home. To be honest, Jadyn’s character in book two seemed so different to me and I’m ecstatic to report that the Jadyn I loved in book one has returned for this installment. She has grown up and has become the woman I knew she could be.

Lori, Mrs. Diamonds, however sucked and was downright cruel at times. She was a nightmare of a wife an

I was knocked on my butt and SHOCKED quite a few times along the way. I mean it's the final book. I expected to cry. NOT all out bawl the way I did. **laughs to self** Yeah, I truly didn't expect to be so emotional, regardless the impact still lingers days later.

Gosh this author redeems one person and downs another.... I loved Jadyn in this book, she totally 110% was the person she needed and wanted to be. She passed the bi*ch baton to Lori, good lord did she ever. I felt towards the end of this book I was reading more for Danny & Lori than Philip & Jay. Wish we could have more to that story line closure. I loved Philip and Jadyn's baby story, they came together perfectly and beautifully.

That Journey

I was in my final semester of nursing school when I stumbled upon a book. This particular book caught my attention because of my unfeigned obsession with the idea of best friends becoming lovers. There is something so incredibly special about the evolution of a love that begins with the purity of friendship. It also makes the build, the tension such an amazing experience. I wanted That Experience. What I got was a journey.

That Boy will forever be one of my favorite books of all time

I was anxiously waiting for this book to come out. I was a bit worried because of the huge gap between the books. Would I still love the characters the same? Would they still sound the same as what I remembered? Would I like them now since my book tastes have slightly changed?
Yes. Yes to all my doubts.

The humor of JJ, Phillip and Danny was all the same as I remembered. THANK GOODNESS!!

They were still quirky, still in love, still best friends and still pulling pranks.

Did everyone else read a different book? We must have because I am not swooning over this one like the other two.

I gave That Boy and That Wedding five stars each. This one damn near got a single star. And I've waited years for this one to come out. Not entirely sure if maybe I just built it up in my head, but I can tell you I'm not happy right now.

Let me start off: it's not worth the 10 bucks that Amazon is charging. 10 dollars for the ebook - are you freaking kidding me?

Just finished another re-read of this fantastic series (listening to the audio books). Even though I knew what was coming I still felt everything like it was the first time. My eyes welled with tears and my heart broke all over again. This is why I love this author's work, she pulls every emotion out of me. Every. Time.

4 stars!!

“I love them in entirely different ways, but I love them both with all my heart.”

This has been one of my most eagerly anticipated books and I have waited years for it to finally come to fruition and I have to say Jillian Dodd did not disappoint. This book killed me in two ways, firstly one character turned into a stark raving loony evil bitch, seriously, we are talking hate on the scale to rival Cathy from Arsen and I thought that was i
I did a series re-read before starting this one, so I already went in starting this one with a certain mindset. And all my worst fears were suddenly almost realized with the dedication. But after reading the book from cover to cover, I can't be mad at the author for taking so long to write it. I may not understand her experiences, but I can definitely sympathize. This is going to be a lengthy review, so you can cut out early or hang on for the ride.

I just want to start off by saying that the authors dedication in the beginning of the book was one giant spoiler. Maybe next time wait until the end of the story to say things like that.

Now for the actual book...what did I just read? I have been looking forward to this book since the previous book ended. I fell in love with these characters in That Boy and while it diminished some in the sequel, the overall series made me happy. With the third book, it just died. I almost wish I hadn't read it

Not sure I can find the proper words to sum up the emotional roller coaster for THAT BABY! You're gonna cry, whether from tears of laughter, frustration, pure romantic joy or heartache - tears will be shed. We've all waited so long for this novel and it did not disappoint. I have been a fan of JJ, Phillip & Danny since That Boy came out and believe me the wait was sooo worth it! Thank you, Jillian, for giving them what they needed. ...more

OMG! The wait was so worth it. Thank you Jillian for sharing and writing this story. I don't want to stay too much, just know that the wait was worth it and this is a MUST read!

So many emotions through this journey and then Jillian hits ya again with her acknowledgment. I too would also like to thank Mollie Harper, thanks to her I came across Jillian and this awesome series almost 3 years ago and fell in love with Jadyn, Phillip and Danny.

And done! I can't believe I just read the final book in the That Boy series. I was never one that felt I needed That Baby to conclude Phillip and JJ's journey. I'm glad I got it though. I got to revisit 3 characters that I adored. While it was a bumpy and emotional ride, it came together in a roundabout heartbreakingly beautiful kind of way. I hope readers enjoy the conclusion as much as I did. And thank you Jillian Dodd for once again writing characters that are so easy to fall in love with. ...more

That Baby was definitely worth the wait. It was funny, sweet, sad, relate-able, and altogether a great conclusion to the series. However, I would have liked a little more explanation/resolution than what was provided with the Lori situation. And I didn't really think the $10 price tag was all that reasonable either... Anyway all's well that ends well.

Update 07/27/2015: Well, release date is still listed as August 10, 2015, and now the book is available for pre-order. Dare I get my hopes

THAT BABY was a very long pregnancy and I was beginning to wonder if it would ever be born! This has been and remains one of my very favorite New Adult series that I've read. Jillian Dodd just knows how to write emotions and characters who come alive on the pages. And the friendships she created within this series are among the best. I just finished and am blubbering like a baby. What a fabulous ride!

4.5 stars Loved it in audio! I first tried it in ebook, it was enjoyable, but it just wasn't keeping my interest. When I switched to the audio, I couldn't put it down. The narrator captured Phillip (best boyfriend and husband), Danny, and Jaden's personalities perfectly. I was a little sad and frustrated about Danny's relationship situation- he was way to awesome to put up with that.

The ending and epilogue gave me complete satisfaction!!

So good. So, so good!

I was happy and then I was wrecked and then I was happy again. Relationships were tested. I disliked a specific character in the one and I’m not sure I’ll ever recover from that, but we’ll see.

I love Jillian’s writing. It just makes me happy. She writes on the cleaner side and every book I’ve read is more fade to black, which I can appreciate. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything.

I recommend if you’re looking for a binge worthy series!

It is hard to believe a little over two years ago we started Romance Rewind Blog. In fact, one of the very first review posts we did was for That Boy and That Wedding. (The blog post is so old it even has the original covers and we love them so much we can't bring ourselves to update the post.) That being said, waiting for the release of That Baby has felt like forever! It was a long wait, but now with the last page turned in the story of JJ, Phillip and Danny, we can say without a

When I was asked by Jillian Dodd if I would like to read an advanced copy of That Baby I jumped for joy and did a happy dance. One thing you will figure out about me is that I am an avid reader/fan of Jillian Dodd’s work. I am also a part of a group called Keatyn Chronicles and ten of my friends and I read this book with a group text of commentary. We have been hearing about That Baby for a while and I was excited when I realized that she was going to finishing the trilogy. I got the book yester ...more

Phillip, JJ and Danny have such a beautiful friendship and love for each other. Finally getting to read them again was amazing I missed them. Jillian is a brilliant author and some of the lines in this book were so beautifully written. The beginning has so many laugh out loud and happy moments! The middle I was mad and annoyed with a certain character that I won't name and spoil for anyone... The end is heartbreaking! Get the tissues ready. So much happens that you'll want to go back and read th ...more
Honestly the push backs are getting ridiculous.

I have started and completed my university degree waiting for this book. With all the time wasted, I'm sure this book will not reach my expectations.

I have literally written my own version in my head!!!!!

Update: yet another push back to March 15. At this point I have to assume this book is never coming out, give up the dream and then be summarily surprised if it actually comes out.
