Reviews The Wedding Party (The Wedding Date, #3)

  • Roxane
    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 ...

    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. Womp :(

    4 stars 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 ne...

    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!About th...

    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 st...

    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...

    Many thanks to Berkely for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review Maddie and Theo have two things in common:1. Alexa is their best friend2. 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? The Wedding Date follows Theo and Maddie who hate eac...
  • Toni
    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 th...

    The first time Maddie Forest meets Theo Stephens, she thinks he is an uptight, over-organized, spreadsheet-creating jerk.When Theo Stephens first meets Maddie Forest, he thinks she is a shallow, image-obsessed prima donna with her head in the clouds and no real 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 so much time together during the cou...

    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. Meh.
  • Gabby
    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...
  • Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader
    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 an...

    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 th...

    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 and Theo have two things in commo...

    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...
  • Emma
    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...
  • Obsidian
    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 a...
  • Jessica
    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 Ale...

    '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...

    4 starsSuch a lovely and lighthearted story, I love this author writing so much her stories are addictive and fun to read!The Wedding Party was so enjoyable, I loved the storyline and I adored Theo and Maddie. Maddie is funny. Their relationship is sexy and I liked how things went for them! It felt realistic to me and I like it a lot for it! This series is getting better and better I can’t wait to read the next book!     
  • Stacee
    This was definitely my favorite of the series. I loved Maddie and Theo. They’re both perfectionists and maybe a little prickly, but their banter was fun. Even if I spent the entire book alternating between wanting to slap the stupid out of them and mashing their faces together. Of course it was fun to see Alexa and Drew and Nik and Carlos again. Plot wise, it was easy and comfortable and that may have been the best part. I loved how compatible ...
  • Leigh Kramer
    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 wit...

    OH MY GOODNESS, my cheeks are sore from smiling from ear to ear while reading THE WEDDING PARTY! I absolutely loved this book! It was sheer joy to turn the pages as I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation. I don’t think I can swoon, gush or squeal anymore than I have with this book. I had several glasses of rosé while reading this book & kicked my feet with excitement throughout. This story of love & friendship just made me giddy. I tho...

    I received a copy of this from Penguin and Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. This one was just so so for me, I kinda got tired of them constantly denying their feelings and being mean. It just didn’t even make sense part of the time. I enjoyed Alexa and was glad for the hea.

    The Wedding Party is book three in the Wedding Date series. These books are sort of a cross between contemporary romance, romantic comedy, and Chick Lit.This book is Maddie and Theo's book (3rd person POVs). Maddie is Alexa from the Wedding Date's best friend. And Theo works with Alexa.This book is very connected to The Wedding Date as Alexa is in this book a lot. Maddie is a stylist. Theo works for the mayor of Berkeley, Calfornia.It took me a w...
  • Kate ☀️ Olson
    (free review copy) I’m having a hard time deciding whether my “it was okay” feelings about this one are about the actual story or about the tropes within. I honestly just don’t love enemies-to-lovers or secret relationships in books and since those are the entire premise of this story, I couldn’t fall in love like I did with the first two books in the series. The thought of being physically intimate with someone I detest is so off-putti...
