The Wedding Party (The Wedding Date #3)
by Jasmine Guillory
Release Date: July 16, 2019
Source: PublisherMaddie and Theo have two things in common:
1. Alexa is their best friend
2. They hate each other
After an “Oops, we made a mistake” kiss, neither one can stop thinking about the other. With Alexa’s wedding rapidly approaching, Maddie and Theo both share bridal party responsibilities that require more interaction with each other than they’re comfortable with. Underneath the sharp barbs they toss at each other is a simmering attraction that won’t fade. It builds until they find themselves sneaking off together to release some tension when Alexa isn’t looking.
But as with any engagement with a nemesis, there are unspoken rules that must be abided by. First and foremost, don’t fall in love.
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. But the closer the wedding get, the more Maddie forgets why she doesn't like Theo...
The last two books in this series both had relationships that started out as casual and the couple not wanting more, freaking out they were sending the wrong signals, and pulling away so that they didn't appear too serious. I was excited for something new and...got the same thing in this book. From the start, Maddie hated Theo and it seemed like it was a super rash and unsupported opinion. One misconstrued comment from Theo made Maddie hated him. Then, when they started their physical relationship, they both had to make sure it didn't seem like something more. Just like the other two books in this series. I'm kind of over that kind of relationship and wanted something different.
If you love a good wedding romance, this is definitely the series to pick up. I loved the whole wedding premise and how Theo and Maddie were both involved in Alexa's wedding. Alexa and Drew were so adorable and I really loved Alexa's part in Maddie and Theo's relationship.
Overall, while I love this series and this author, this one was just okay. I really can't wait for something different from Jasmine Guillory and am already itching to pick up Royal Holiday, the next installment in this series!
