I love this world of characters and all the books in this series. The Wedding Party has a great premise. Overall, I wanted the writing to be stronger but Guillory is such a charming voice and these characters are fun and interesting and I was rooting for them the whole way. If you’re looking for a sexy story that will sink it’s hooks into you, this is a nice choice. One frustrating thing—the characters eat pizza obsessively. After like ten times I was like omg seriously? More pizza? I am not exa ...more

This had the potential to be my favorite of the series because it was enemies-to-lovers but I didn't love it and I am SO SAD. I didn't really feel a ton of chemistry between the characters and the overall writing felt really.. stilted? Blah. This definitely wasn't a terrible book, but I think I set my expectations too high.

Maddie Forest thinks Theo Stephens is an uptight, hyper-organized, spreadsheet-loving jerk.

Theo thinks Maddie is a shallow, image-obsessed brat, with zero real-life ambitions.

After their mutual best friend, Alexa, becomes engaged, she asks them both to be in her wedding party.

Chagrined that they will have to spend time together during the whole wedding process, they both agree with good grace to participate. They vow to get through it no matter what.

An enemies to lovers romance by Jasmine Guillory… I’m here for it!

Maddie and Theo are Alexa’s (from The Wedding Date) two best friends and they don’t get along. From the moment they first met, they rubbed each other the wrong way. They’re just so different. Theo seems like the uptight pompous type of guy that Maddie can’t stand and Maddie is the type of girl Theo can’t take seriously.
Whatever, he and Maddie would have never gotten along anyway. She was the cool, hot, party type,
This is a book that’s been resting comfortably on my shelf for a couple months. Make no mistake…I’m loving my rom com weekends but for some unknown reason I kept putting it off. What’s wrong with me?🤦🏻‍♀️ seriously! This was such a sweet and charming read! I’m in a shame-spiral for not reading it sooner!

Maddie’s best friend Alexa is about to get married and she’s over the moon happy for her best friend! But Alexa also has a male friend Theo that will also be part of the wedding party. Norma

Jasmine Guillory’s third book The Wedding Party is (in my opinion) her best yet! In her signature style, this book is steamy, sweet, sassy, and has depth to it that will help us all learn a bit more about what it is like to be a minority in a majority industry. I thought the enemies-turned-lovers storyline worked so well, with the added element of their personal connection through their mutual friend Alexa.

This is a perfect summer book!

Maddie and Theo have two things in common:
1. Alexa is their best friend
2. They hate each other.

Before this, I hadn’t read any Jasmine Guillory books. But now, I feel on a cellular level that I absolutely must ingest every word, syllable and page that this woman puts into the world.

So, what’s this book about?

I mean this was alright. This is my second book from Jasmine Guillory, and even though I liked this one more than The Proposal I still had some issues with it. I think this is way too mild for a book claiming to be a hate-to-love romance. These two characters didn't really "hate" each other, they just made fun of each other sometimes and there was not nearly enough banter. They would just pretend they disliked each other and then have sex a bunch of times. A pet peeve of mine in romance is when ...more

I'm between 4 and 4.5 stars.

Jasmine Guillory has really become one of my go-to authors when I'm in the mood for a great rom-com. Her books are fun to read as well as well-written and steamy, and I find her characters so appealing that it feels like hanging out with friends, especially because the characters in all three of her books are linked in some way.

Her newest book, The Wedding Party , follows that age-old story of two people who can't stand each other yet one crazy night something cha

Jasmine Guillory won my heart with this delightful romance! This is her third book and in my opinion the best one yet. And I defy you to read this entire book and not crave pizza ( I am even half tempted to try roasted garlic on my next Pizza). Theo and Maddie have never really liked each other, but they tolerate one another because they are both BFFs with Alexa. Then one night they accidentally uh oh kiss and then hoops they sleep together. What follows is Theo and Maddie trying to find any exc ...more
I wasn’t too convinced by this book. It stayed lukewarm the entire time and I couldn’t really get on board on the relationship.
I don’t know whether that had to do with the writing or the characters themselves.

The plot of The Wedding Party is pretty straightforward. Theo and Maddie have the same best friend Alexa. Unfortunately for Alexa, they themselves don't like each other at all. Maddie thinks Theo is pompous and boring, while Theo is convinced Maddie is as shallow as it gets. Despite all this, they suddenly find themselves madly attracted to each other to the point of starting a secret sexual relationship. They both agree to keep it secret from their best friend, but where will all this go? they ...more

Talk about fun! “The Wedding Party” by Jasmine Guillory is absolutely everything I was hoping it would be and more.

Maddie and Theo just don’t like each other, in fact, if we’re being honest here, they hate each other. The problem: they both share the same best friend: Alexa, which puts them in close proximity quite often.

One night Maddie and Theo end up doing the deed and the sparks FLY. Of course, it happens again.. and then, they make a pact.

Aw, this is so much fun! I’ve read and loved Jasmine Guillory’s other two contemporary romances, and The Wedding Party is just as entertaining!

Maddie and Theo don’t like each other; however, they have a best friend in common, Alexa. You can probably already sense where that tension may lead them…

They had an “oops” night together, and ever since, they are each obsessed with each other.

Alexa is about to get married, and both Maddie and Theo are in the bridal party. That attraction will not go aw

This book was received in a GoodReads ARC Giveaway. I'm love, love, loving Jasmine Guillory's Wedding Date series. The Wedding Party is the 3rd installment and the perfect contemporary romance summer read! I've been crushing on Theo since the first book and this pairing gave me the feel-good HEA I needed right about now. This book was the perfect antidote to some of my heavier reads this summer, light and delicious and leaving me hungering for the next one! ...more

Let's celebrate BLACK LOVE!

The Wedding Party is book 3 in The Wedding Date series. And this book has my favorite romance trope Enemies 2 Lovers. And while the storyline in this book was slightly weaker than the other books I liked the couple Maddie & Theo the best. I think I might even like this book more on my second read. It just made me smile and given the times in which we live, can't we all use a little easy breezy romance.

Okey dokey! This was my third Jasmine Guillory book, and I'm reading her entire series for an upcoming project, so I have many #THOUGHTS. Bear with me while I turn this lil review into a fucking PhD dissertation for a second.

Similar to when I read both The Wedding Date and The Proposal, I was hooked for the first 60ish pages of The Wedding Party. Love me some characters who are agitated with one another and can't really understand their attraction. Get it, Maddie and Theo!

Jasmine Guillory's The Wedding Party is her best book to date so far!

I read The Proposal and was disappointed but am so glad I was able to get an advanced copy of her newest book because it was so much fun!

Jasmine delivers a steamy, sweet, sassy, and oh so sexy romance novel. This isn't just a typical romance novel.. it definitely as depth to the characters and you just fall in love with the entire crew!

Maddie & Theo hate each other but are pushed to close proximity due to Alexa’s (MC from The Wedding Date) upcoming nuptials. One night after Theo’s birthday party, they hook up & decide that they’ll continue hooking up until they see Alexa married off & get it out of their system.

The Wedding Party was so much fun! And so freaking cute! And so sexy and smart and so very, very quintessential Jasmine Guillory. I devoured this book in a day and enjoyed every delectable,  romantic morsel of it. 

This enemies to lovers romance follows Theo and Maddie, mutual friends of Alexa from The Wedding Date! These characters can't decide if they want each other or want to throttle each other, but as members of Alexa's bridal party, they also can't avoid each other. And so a complicated dy
So this pains me. I bought this today and ended up not really enjoying it. It was a fight to finish because in the end Maddie and Theo were not as intriguing as Alexa and Drew (The Wedding Date) and even Carlos and Nik (The Proposal). If you are going to do a hate to love romance you have to make me actually believe the two people don't like each other. We are finally shown what happened when Maddie and Theo first met and yeah, Theo sucked, but after that there was nothing there. We should have ...more

This was a fun, quick, and charming read.

I loved the chemistry between the two main characters and enjoyed that their relationship wasn't all 'sunshine and daisies'. Each of the characters had their own complexities and it wasn't a simple relationship.

Aside from that, there isn't much for me to say. It's one of those HEA reads that you get the gist of pretty early on. It's a light and fun read to enjoy.

Before I get in to why this book didn’t work for me, I want to mention something that did: Alexa and Maddie’s friendship, particularly the way Maddie processed how Alexa’s engagement and marriage could change their friendship. It is a big adjustment when your best friend gets involved with someone, especially if you’re not also in a serious relationship, and I liked how the story delved into this. It reminded me of conversations I had with my closest friends before they got married and really ra ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I love me a good haters-to-lovers trope and this was done so well! I think that Theo and Maddie showed a lot of chemistry on the page and that's probably what made me like them so much. I also liked how they showed their true selves to each other, layer after layer, by sharing their hopes and fears. Obviously it was also nice to see some of the characters from the previous two books.
I really encourage you to read this one!

I really love Jasmine Guillory and the Wedding Date series. I was so excited when this book was going to surround Drew and Alexa's wedding and their friends falling for one another.

The moment Maddie met Theo, she's hated him. He may be her best friend's other best friend, but his infuriating and arrogant personality is not attractive to her. Until one night leads to a little more and Maddie doesn't know what to do. Maddie sets a deadline for Alexa's wedding and, after that, all ties are cut. Bu
If you are looking for a fun, humorous Valentine's week read then look no further than The Wedding Party by Jasmine Guillory. The third book in the Wedding Date series, this one can easily be read as a stand alone, although, you will want to read all three because they wonderfully written.

The Wedding Party has a classic theme of wedding dates and the I hate you/I love you trope but it is written in such a fun, modern manner that the story appears fresh. It really is classic ROM/COM that proves

'The Wedding Party' was a feel-good book. And sometimes, you just need to feel good!

Do you remember Alexa's best friend from 'The Wedding Date'? This is Maddie's story!! I was so excited to read her story and I wasn't disappointed!

Maddie is funny, smart, and has a sharp tongue when feeling vulnerable. She's not opposed to relationships she just hasn't found anyone who accepts her for the "real" Maddie. She hasn't found anyone with whom she can be herself. That is until a moment of weakness has h

I was looking forward to reading The Wedding Party since I enjoy Jasmine Guillory's writing style. However, I was let down by the book. I managed to finish it, but it was mostly out of frustration, if that makes any sense. If you've read The Wedding Date or The Proposal, you've read The Wedding Party. Guillory offers nothing new in terms of tropes and content. Here again, we have a relationship that begins as a casual no-strings attached relationship between Theo and Maddie, just as the first tw
