Beautiful closure to this beautiful story.  Oh how I have missed Travis and Abby.  Beautiful Disaster is one of my favorite books ever and Travis Maddox is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends.  I just fell in love with him, and with his and Abby's story in Beautiful Disaster, and then enjoyed getting to see things from his point of view in Walking Disaster.  I was so excited to find out that Jamie McGuire was writing A Beautiful Wedding, and have anxiously been waiting to get my hands on it so I could read more of Travis and Abby's story.  A Beautiful Wedding takes place between the ending of the A Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster, and the awesome epilogue that was in Walking Disaster.  We all know they got married and got a glimpse into their lives a number of years down the road, but what happened at the wedding?  Well, hold on to your hats and get ready to find out everything you want to know about the how, why, what, and when regarding the wedding, the events that lead up to it, the reason behind the rush, the wedding night, and even a glimpse into their future.  One of the things I loved most about this novella was the relationship between Abby and Travis. Whereas in the previous novels they went through so much drama, pain, obstacles, fighting, and separation, before they finally got together, in A Beautiful Wedding we get to see a more mature side of Abby and Travis and the solidity of their commitment as they experience the unselfishness that come with totally giving yourself to another person in love.  I think you will love this side of Travis and Abby.  Don't get me wrong they are still Travis and Abby, and Travis is still the Travis we have all come to know and love, just a more grown up version.  Travis has always rocked my world with his bad boy vibe, his hotness, his swagger, and his intensity, but in A Beautiful Wedding girls, Travis Maddox will make you SWOON big time.  I loved A Beautiful Wedding and the completeness it brought to this timeless love story.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

This Novella did NOT disappoint! You get a more detailed account of Abby & Travis' Vegas wedding. Plus a brief look into their lives after. I only hope we will someday soon be reading "A Beautiful Baby"?! Maybe?? Great job, Jamie!!

You know, sometimes there’s come a point in the life of a series where you want to sit the author down and say to them, “Listen, it’s been swell. It’s getting old, though. Just stop. Just stop it and let the series die a peaceful death.” (I’m looking at you Pretty Little Liars.) Unfortunately, that time has come much sooner for the Beautiful series by Jamie McGuire. Beautiful Disaster was a fine book. It certainly could have been (and *should* have been) a stand-alone book. We didn’t need the same story from Travis. Be honest, there wasn’t enough of a change between Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster. Yeah, I get it… It was the same story so most everything should be the same. Okay, but no. It was the *exact* same story with *very little* changed, repacked, and sold as a separate book. There was no difference between Abby’s point-of-view (BD) and Travis’ point-of-view (WD) and the last time I checked, they were two separate people no matter how in love they actually are. All that nonsense aside, we couldn’t possibly let Abby and Travis rest in the land of ended series, could we? Nope! Now we’ve got A Beautiful Wedding which practically changes the story that we were led to believe… within the first few pages! Super Fans of the series certainly won’t like this. I’ll be honest, I didn’t too much care for it, either. Though I’m not invested in the series whatsoever it still ruined the story that I previously read. I didn’t care for this book at all. I didn’t really care for Walking Disaster, either, though. I guess I have a horrible tendency to read books that I know I’m not going to enjoy. This should certainly be a lesson for me, but I doubt it will be. Be sure to check out all of my reviews on my blog, KDH Reviews.

After finishing Beautiful Disaster, I remember being a bit bummed because I wanted to see Travis and Abby get married. Just finding out they got tattoos wasn't enough for me- I wanted details! Lucky for us, Jamie McGuire decided to write a novella to fill us in on how Abby and Travis got to that point and how everything progressed from there. I really enjoyed this novella. It was cute, sweet, and funny too! Abby and Travis are one of those couples that really drive you crazy and will make you shake your head at them and wonder, 'How are these two even together?' They are both stubborn, passionate individuals and you can see that in all aspects of their lives, especially their relationship. However, Travis and Abby really do love each other deeply and we are reminded of that in this novella so many times. "And when a Maddox boy falls in love, he loves forever." I will say, some of Abby's decisions bothered me (as they did in the previous books) and I was really fearful for where McGuire was going to take this novella. We really get to see firsthand that Travis is not the only one who is extremely protective of Abby- she is of him as well. She would do anything to ensure his safety and while that would seem endearing, it actually caused some inner conflict. One of my favorite things about Travis is that he is so attentive to Abby. He cares about her comfort and he puts her wants and needs first and that is a very beautiful thing. Oh, and did I mention this novella was dual POV? Oh, yes folks- you get to see our boy in action and he will make you laugh, swoon, and then cry all in the span of 160 pages! There is absolutely one scene in this book that gave me chills. In fact, I think it made the whole damn book because of how emotional and beautiful it was. I wasn't expecting it, and yet it was so pivotal to not only the novella, but for Abby as well. Travis and Abby are both still trying to process the events that took place in Keaton Hall and we really get to see firsthand just how much of a toll this takes on both of them not only mentally, but emotionally as well. It was worrisome to wonder if Abby and Travis were really in their right state of minds at this point to go forward with their plans to get married. We do see some insecurities, some self-doubt, and some hesitance in the beginning, but come on. It's Abby and Travis- nothing is bound to go as planned! However, all of those things aside- these two truly do love one another and want to be together forever and nothing is going to stop them from doing that. This novella has a lot of great moments in it: some will have you laughing out loud (Trent!), some will have you happy sighing from all the sweetness, and some will have you fanning yourself because of how sexy and steamy Abby and Travis can be together. I felt McGuire did a great job of answering our questions as to what really happened the night Travis and Abby got married, as well as gave us a little taste in what came next for our couple.

This was so nice. I fell in love with these characters and I'm glad Jaime McGuire decided to add this short story for them. I loved how Walking Disaster ended and told of the future 10 years later but this was a piece that had been missing from their journey. I refer this story to all my friends and everyone just fell in love with Travis. Why do girls always fall for the bad boys? In this case I'm glad Abby did.

I LOVED Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster. I don't usually read books over again, but for those I probably will. I might have had too high of expectations for this novella, however, it just didn't seem like the same Abby and Travis I fell in love with before. It seemed a bit rushed and similar to fanfiction quality to me. Whereas, Jamie McGuire is usually a MUCH better writer than that. I hate to say anything negative, but I wish that she would have left the story alone rather than adding this to it. But I'm glad some other people enjoyed it! :)

Amazing! Loved all three books! Travis and Abby's story is by far the greatest I've read. Not one to spoil the book so I say it's a must read!!! I really hope Jamie writes another that book that continues from the end of Walking Disaster. Like maybe a Beautiful Baby, or Beautiful Forever???

Loved this novella! YES, finally, the ending I'd been needing all along. I worried it had been too long since I'd read BEAUTIFUL DISASTER and WALKING DISASTER for this short story to make an impression. I was so mistaken! Right from the beginning I was transported back in time. Jamie McGuire did an amazing job of making the reader relive, reexperience all the love (and some of the angst) a third time around. Both Abby and Travis have POV's. An unforgetable love story with a superb ending finally! I highly recommend reading this book. S.A.K. P.S. there's actually sex scenes too!

3.49 is too much to pay for a 100 pg book, especially when plot spoilers give everything away. Please plot spoilers, give it a rest and stop ruining books for other readers. Have some consideration for others and stop being so rude and thoughtless.
