That Wedding (That Boy)

That Wedding - Jillian Dodd That Wedding picks up right where That Boy let off. JJ and Phillip best friends since childhood are now engaged and about to start planning their wedding. But the process definitely won't be without challenges. First they will need to attend couples counseling and second JJ will have to deal with things from her past if they are to make this relationship work and make it to the alter. The friendship between Phillip, Danny and JJ seems stronger than ever. JJ and Danny are very similar and seem to turn to each other for advice about everything. Phillip and JJ are in love and he has always been there for her but she needs that friendship with Danny.There are many bumps in the road to the alter. They have to attend couples counseling which JJ does not take very seriously. They seem to use sex to solve all of their problems. I think that through this story all of the characters have grown up. Perhaps the one who grew up the most was Danny who is now a husband and soon to be father.I went through a bunch of emotions reading this book. One minute I was laughing and smiling with the characters and the next I was tearing up. Jillian Dodd really does know how to write some swoonworthy boys. Phillip is just dreamy and sweet and regular knight in shining armor. Danny is nothing short of awesome. He is a husband and soon to be father who just loves and adores his wife.And can we talk about the wedding for a minute!?! This wedding sounded amazing. From the dress to the princess martini to the custom made nikes for the groomsmen it sounded like nothing short of amazing. A beautiful wedding for a very deserving in love couple. I am sure Jillian Dodd had an amazing time writing and planning out this whole wedding. I know I would have.This book made me so happy and upset at times. I laughed, cried and swooned through the whole story. This is a book that makes you believe in true love and that maybe just maybe your prince charming is out there somewhere.I would love to see another book about these characters and where their story goes from here. Maybe a book that tells a little more about Danny. As much as I love Phillip and JJ I would love to here more about Danny and his story. I am sure you will fall in love with these characters as much as I did. Happy reading!Favorite QuotesHere's what I'm going to do. I'll move to California and start a new life. I'll rewrite fairytales. I'll make a fairytale reality show. a behind the castle look at Cinderella and Prince Charming's lives. I think we'd all take wicked pleasure in seeing Cinderella scream, Asshole, at Charming, and then in a fit of rage, chuck her glass slipper at his head. Hopefully, it was made from like bulletproof glass, so it did not shatter and rain down glass on Charming's head and like disfigure him or anything. Oh , but if it did, we could change it to a Beauty and the Beast sort of thing.When I was little, I used to tell my parents I was gonna marry a prince. They told me I was silly, and I should marry you. Little did we know, we were both right. For a long time, I didn't think my prince existed, but then I realized he'd been standing next to me my whole life. Thank you for believing in us, even when I wasn't so sure. Thank you for loving me, even when I'm stubborn and never wrong. Thank you for making me believe true love, the fairytale kind, actually exists. It will be my extreme honor to spend the rest of my life with you, To cherish you, to love you and to be yours forever.
