The Wedding Laughbox contains FIVE full-length novels and ONE ALL NEW NOVELLA! – from a variety of New York Times bestselling romantic comedy author Julia Kent’s series.
It’s wedding season, and what’s better than a wedding in rom com style?
Julia Kent’s madcap style, that is.
How about a campground double wedding with three grooms and two brides? (What? Yep…) Or a billionaire and his betrothed escaping their own wedding to flee to Vegas? Paparazzi galore and a stubborn father of the groom ruining a CEO’s planned nuptials until he takes matters into his own hands and does love his way? A disgruntled older sister watching her sister find wedded bliss and maybe, just maybe, finding her own love with a rival billionaire?
With five different stories you get bridezillas, momzillas — even a billionaire dadzilla – with over-the-top fun and lush, luxurious settings, all wrapped up in community, connection, and loads of fun.
This boxed set includes:
Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife
Shopping for a CEO’s Wife
It’s Always Complicated
Random Acts of Love
And Tasty, an ALL NEW novella featuring Will and Mallory from the book Fluffy, as they go on their honeymoon and discover that life is nothing but a series of coincidences as their past comes back to haunt them with hilarious results.
Sink into SIX humor-filled books that pour you into wedding planning, bachelorette and bachelor parties, give you all the wedding jitters and proud family moments, all wrapped up in a huge boxed set you can sink into and find your way to long-term love.
Note: each of these books can be read as a standalone, but they are part of larger series. All of my Laughbox boxed sets are designed to give readers a taste of my books, centered on a specific concept (in this case, weddings). Full disclosure for readers.

Excerpt (PLEASE CHOOSE ONLY ONE TO USE WITH YOUR POST):
#1 – Shopping for a Billionaire’s Wife
“Seriously, Dec? We just fled a thousand-person wedding in our honor and all you can think about is getting above the garter?”
His confusion just increases. “Yes,” he answers honestly.
I throw my hands in the air, whacking some sort of strap that stretches behind my shoulder. It begins to flap in the wind as we race toward whatever landing strip we’ll use to disembark. As it fut-fut-futs against my veil, I realize the wind isn’t whipping the long, white lace behind me. When we crawled into the helicopter and Declan put on my harness, he tucked my veil in.
I love him so much.
#2 – It’s Always Complicated
“Who do I get to marry, Mama? Papa or Daddy?” No one had taught Jillian to call her fathers by different names. And none of the three of them could pinpoint when she’d started calling Mike “Daddy” and Dylan “Papa”, but the names had stuck. Somehow, Jillian had instinctively known they were distinct, separate fathers with different identities. She never confused Daddy for Papa or vice versa. Dylan’s father was Grandpa.
Her only grandpa. She only had Dylan’s parents to fill the ‘grand’ role. Laura’s mom was dead and her dad long gone. Mike’s mom and dad still had no relationship with him, and he wanted to keep it that way.
Until two months ago, Laura had respected that.
Something about the whole wedding process—even if she couldn’t legally wed both Dylan and Mike—had triggered a sentimentality in her that made her weepy every time she looked at the children. Weddings were supposed to be sprawling affairs, with loads of extended family present to celebrate, the three of them had only Dylan’s family.
That was it.
And while his parents and his siblings were great, there was still a hole. Sometimes, Laura would watch Jillian sleeping and wonder if her own mother had done the same, watching a tiny Laura in the depths of her dreams. Did her mom stroke her hair from her forehead and marvel at the miracle of her own love? Did she feel what Laura felt for Jillian, Aaron and Adam? In the quiet moments of the night, when all the chaos had settled down into slumber and the children twisted their tiny bodies in their sheets, limbs flung hither and yon, all-too-often tucked in between her, Mike and Dylan in the enormous double-king bed that they had created, she pondered.
Maybe every mother felt the way Laura did.
#3 – Tasty (all-new novella)
“You look extraordinary,” Will whispers in my ear as the slow, sensual lyrics taper off into the final notes of a beautiful love song. We’re dancing, my cheek against his shoulder, and I am breathing all the breaths.
Every woman should have this at their wedding. Their perfect wedding.
We’ve pulled it off, Will and I. Five bridesmaids, five groomsmen, one mother of the bride, one father of the bride, one mother of the groom, one father of the groom – and one big, new extended family.
Color coordination to the point of perfect alignment.
Ratios of food that create culinary masterpieces in each individual mouth.
My sister’s artisanal Manchego cheese.
My best friends, all happy, all at peace with their perfect partners.
This wedding couldn’t be more exquisite, and now the ante is about to be upped because the reception is almost over and it is time to head to our cottage rental.
A gift from my best friend, Perky, who booked it for us before our flight to Los Angeles.
No, we’re not honeymooning in L.A. That’s just a pit stop, an overnight before the real deal.
That’s right. We’re spending our honeymoon in Fiji paradise.
“Need some water?” he asks, making me smile as I nod, because he’s tracking me. Watching out for me. We’re in symbiosis mode, and it’s a delight to have someone who cares so much that he notices my state. As he walks over to the bar, I watch, mesmerized.
