Merrily Ever After Reviews
I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads
A cute read about what happens when something you didn't expect or know that you wanted.
Life is about to change drastically for Elise and Jay when Christmas brings Elise a true miracle: an unexpected pregnancy. She's not sure how she feels, she's been told for years that having children weren't in the cards for her. She's scared to tell bUsy because he's been very clear about not wanting kids.
I loved the way Elise and Jay's ...more
Elise and Jay are back and boy have things changed for them this time around!!
I was a little worried about how this whole surprise pregnancy would play out between this couple who had both placed themselves firmly in the not wanting children club. I was worried about how we were sold that they both were not just okay with not having children, but that they preferred it and that they would somehow magically be over the moon with the news.
Well, while Elise took the surprise pretty well ...more
Merrily Ever After by Jenny Holiday is book 2.5 in the Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series. This continues the story of Elise Maxwell and Jay Smith who we met in the 'Once Upon a Bride' book.
You could probably make this a standalone without any issues but I personally feel you will enjoy it more if you read the previous book first. Elise and Jay are so much in love and are ready for their first Christmas together but then Elise finds that she is expecting a child. Elise is concerned how Jay wil ...more

Jenny Holiday’s Bridesmaids Behaving Badly series is one of my favorite finds of 2018. Obviously I was thrilled when I found out she would be releasing a holiday novella in the series. Better yet? Merrily Ever After features the couple whose wedding in the first book kicked off this whole ride. I was so excited to get a glimpse at Elise and Jay’s life together.
Merrily Ever After isn't all light and fluffy fun and games, but it's a realistic look ...more
After the courtship, the wedding and an every day life that seem like a fairytale, comes the time where every couple have to face if they are really made to be together, for better or for worse. Jay and Elise are at that point. The moment where a happy news is also a bad news that will either bring them closer or separate them.
Diagnosed with endometriosis when she was younger, Elise was not supposed to be able to have kids. Not a thing that would bother Jay, since he's pretty set on never wanti ...more
Absolutely scrumptious! Actually, I take that back. Scrumptious does not even begin to express how amazing this short holiday novella was. I devoured Elise and Jay's story, Once Upon a Bride, and was more than a little excited to find out that they would be getting another novella. I'm so so happy that Jenny Holiday decided to write these two characters' stories because they are my favorite from the series.
In Once Upon a Bride, we find out that Elise is infertile and that Jay wants nothing ...more
Schmaltzy and over the top. Angsty yet sweet. Not a bad story but not great.
So after reading “Once Upon A Bride” I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this story and catch up with Jay and Elise. For the most part they have been on the same page about no kids but Elise ends up pregnant. Talk about intense. I didn’t know what was going to happen. My heart was hurting for both of them because they have issues with their families. I could also understand where Jay was coming from as well. I was really torn and couldn’t pick a side to be on.
“So keep remaking me, Elise. Both of ...more
