I really enjoyed this novella, which focused on Gretchen and Hunter's wedding. Gretchen always makes me laugh, and is one of my favorite characters in the entire series. A nice surprise is redemption and a happy ending for Gretchen's sister Daphne. Her remorse feels genuine, and I was rooting for her this time around. If you enjoyed any of Clare's Billionaire books, this story is a satisfying conclusion.

***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog*** Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding by Jessica Clare Book 6.5 of the Billionaire Boys Club series Publisher: Berkley Intermix Publication Date: November 15, 2016 Rating: 3 stars Source: eARC from NetGalley ***Warning: this is an adult book, and for the eyes of mature readers*** Summary (from Goodreads): In this all-new novella in the New York Times bestselling series, Hunter and Gretchen are finally tying the knot—but their wedding may not be the easy fairy tale they’ve dreamed of... Someone's out to ruin Gretchen's happy-ever-after on the eve before the big day. Can she trust Hunter, the man she's given her heart to?

What I Liked: A bit of a disclaimer - I have not read any of the books in this series, nor have I read anything by Jessica Clare. I downloaded this novella completely by accident. The publisher sent a promotional email that included a NetGalley widget, but I didn't see the widget at first, and I clicked within the email and bam! I've opened a widget in NetGalley and it's on my NetGalley shelf. So I figured, why not. I don't really do novellas, but this one was cute. Gretchen and Hunter's wedding is Christmas Eve, just a few days away, and Gretchen is freaking out. She wants everything to be perfect, but it's not just Bridezilla fever kicking in. Hunter is a billionaire, and she is an unemployed train wreck. She loves baking and decides that she is going to bake everything for the wedding. She wants a fairy tale wedding with nothing standing in their way... but nothing goes according to plan. Will they make it to the altar before things fall apart? This was a sweet novella. Gretchen is a seriously anxious person, and a bit of a control freak, and she has been taking on way too much. Baking cake, dessert, and bread for two hundred people? Good luck. Getting everything put together last-minute? It's no wonder Gretchen is on the verge of a breakdown. She tries so hard because she wants to impress her husband-to-be, to show him that he's not just marrying an unemployed loser. She loves him and wants to show him this. Hunter, on the other hand, is planning two big surprises for Gretchen, and he's excited and nervous about her reaction. Hunter is so thoughtful, and is very devoted to Gretchen. This novella was very short, but it got me into the characters' heads really well. I hadn't read any of the other books in the series, but I didn't need to. There is a family dynamic here too, and a wonderful friendship. Gretchen's younger sister Daphne has been out of contact with the family for quite some time, but shows up for the pre-wedding shenanigans. And it's nice to see Gretchen and her bridesmaids/friends interact - they are hilarious and so supportive of each other. The ending of this novella is cute! Exactly how I hoped it would end, and Gretchen and Hunter handle it beautifully. I like how everything came together.

3.5 stars--BEAUTY AND THE BILLIONAIRE: The Wedding by Jessica Clare is a novella length story line in the Billionaire Boys Club series focusing on the Christmas wedding preparations one week prior to Gretchen Petty and Hunter Buchanan’s wedding. The months leading up to the wedding have been highlighted in Jessica Clare’s spin off series-Billionaires and Bridesmaids that focused on several of the wedding party attendants for the upcoming nuptials. BEAUTY AND THE BILLIONAIRE also follows the building relationship between Gretchen and Audrey’s prodigal sister Daphne Petty, and her personal trainer Wes. Told from several third person points of view we are witness to Gretchen’s meltdown as her wedding day approaches. From a series of baking mishaps, a winter snowstorm, and a potential blackmail scheme, Gretchen believes her wedding day is cursed. With the return of Daphne things go from bad to worse as the trio of sisters begin to butt heads about Daphne’s sudden appearance. BEAUTY AND THE BILLIONAIRE: The Wedding is the culmination of several story lines and two series, and months of preparations for Gretchen and Hunter’s wedding. The reader has been up close and personal as the bridesmaids and groomsmen have come and gone never quite sure who will be standing with the bride and groom. The premise is entertaining and a whirlwind of activity but was anti-climactic with the resulting story line due in part to the massive buildup throughout the series-I was expecting a more extravagant and detailed story. The characters are colorful and familiar; the romance is limited as the relationship has already been established. The lone scene of sexual activity is mostly implied. With the addition of Daphne and Wes, I am going to presume there is another story line in the future and The Wedding is the vehicle of introduction.

I’m sure the calamity leading up to an actual date for their wedding tied Gretchen and Hunter up in knots but Gretchen took it over the top. She stressed over everything and she made me laugh, she made me sad for her (having to go thru it all) and she made me want to slap her upside the head whenever she doubted Hunter’s love for her. But I loved the story. It was sweet and funny. Hunter was the best, as always. And Gretchen’s baking disasters were hilarious. Fast, fun conclusion (?) to a sweet romance.

Christmas is supposed to be about faith, hope and charity, not chaos, secrets and blackmail. Ms. Clare manages to sprinkle in a little bit of each along with a whole lot of love, a great deal of mischief and a dab of forgiveness. Gretchen and Hunter's wedding is shaping up to be the event of the season. If the bride and groom manage to make it down the aisle. The Billionaires Boys Club series although sugary is full of optimism, life lessons and heartwarming moments that culminate in love. Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding puts the finishing touches on an adorable saga of family and friends and the strong bond they share. It proves family begins in the heart not the bloodlines. A winner. Copyright of Night Owl Reviews

I really lived the orginal beauty and the billonaire but this story seemed rushed and had errors. For exampke Daphne had met Hunter before but kept referring to the make that she just met him
