    greetings from Ecuador

    1. Ecuador!! That’s awesome!! Thanks for letting me know and I think your English is great!!

  4. I am obsessed with these books! I have probably read them about four times, and I NEVER re-read books! I love all the characters and to be honest I am kinda jealous of Jaydn’s life! Embarrassing, I know I cry every time I read it! It’s so happy! I can’t wait for that baby to come out! I know you have probably been busy writing your other series and I am going to start that soon while I’m waiting. Keep up the good work!!

    xoxo

  8. I’ve read ‘That Boy’ and ‘That Wedding’ in the duration of 3 days! It’s a relationship every girl dreams of! It makes me smile whenever I think about either book because it’s what I want someday 🙂 Was wondering if there might be a ‘That Child’ book any time soon? 😀

    1. There will be a That Baby sometime in 2014. I’m glad you have enjoyed the series!

  9. Hi Jillian! I’m from Argentina and I’ve just finished reading That wedding.
    I want to thank you for both books, I completely loved them… JJ and Phillip´s love story it’s beautiful and it’s the story that every girl want to live. I honestly fell in love with Phillip, the way he loves Jadyn is unique, he’s always supporting her and I wish I could find someone like him haha <3 . I can't wait to read That baby, I'm excited 🙂 I'm waiting for it anxiously.

    1. Argentina? How cool is that?? I’m so glad that you enjoyed the stories and I have to say that I heart Phillip too 🙂

  10. thanks for answering! it would be great if you wrote his book, he seems like an interesting (hot lol) character!
    Im sure the two kids’ book will be as good as the previous ones…
    yep Argentina! I love English and I love reading, so now Im planning to start your other series and wait for more JJ, Phillipe, Danny, their kids and of course keep praying for Bradley’s book 😉

  11. Hi Jillian, Im an Argentian fan =) loved That boy and That wedding! Can’t wait to read That baby <3 I have read lots of romance books, but you definitely are one of my favourite authors! The way you write JJ and Phillipe story is just wonderful! I would love to read about their kids, know their story too…
    So, I have a question, will you write about other characters in the books sometime in the future?? Like Bradley the bartender? He seems like an interesting character… 😉
    anyways, thanks for a great reading!

    1. I have thought about writing a story about Bradley the hot bartender. I have already written scenes for a book about two of their children and Argentina, that’s so awesome!!

  12. You are an amazing author! I devoured your books (That Boy & That Wedding) in two days!
    Waiting for That Baby is putting me through emotional distress LOL you’re that awesome!
    Will we have anymore teasers for That Baby?

  13. I devoured your books (That Boy & That Wedding) in two days! You are simply a down to earth author 🙂
    Waiting for That Baby is emotionally hurting me LOL you are that good! Btw, will we have anymore sneak peaks/teasers for That Baby?

  14. I may have used some google translator to to understand a few words, lol.
    but yes, I speak and understand English very well! I’m suck in Spanish too…

    I still can not buy the second book, I’ll try that some friend send me. I’ve read some reviews and seems to be great.
    I’m excited.
    oh, and just so you know, your book was recommended by another girl here in Brazil.
    So yes, u got fans here 🙂

    I’m so glad you answered me, like I said, u’re cute for doing that!

    kisses from a Brazilian fan, I hope one day I can find your books translated into portuguese in bookstores here.

  15. I gotta say, this book is amazing!
    I’m a Brazilian fan.
    I’m studying for an english exam and I decided to read your book.
    It was one of my best decisions of the year.
    Can not wait for the sequel.

    And you’re seem so nice, answering all comments. 🙂 congrats..
    xoxo

    1. Thank you!! And I’m like so thrilled that someone in Brazil has read my book. That’s so exciting!! I’m also impressed that you can read english so well. I took three years of Spanish in high school and don’t even know how to cuss in the language!! The sequel to That Boy, That Wedding, is already out. That Baby will be out next year.

  16. Hey, Jillian Loooove all your books! You’re an ah-mazing and talented author! I got my cousin and sister reading them, too!!! Do you have a dream cast for That Boy, That Wedding, and maybe That Baby like you have for Stalk Me and Kiss Me??? 🙂

    1. Thank you! I’m hoping to do a dream cast and some other added content for The That Boy Series. I have to get Kiss Me out first!

  17. Bless you for your amazing writing, Jillian!! I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love Jadyn, Phillip, and Danny! I rarely come across books that make me cry and laugh at the same time. Honestly, it’s been awhile since I’ve read something that’s not for school and I’ve forgotten how fun it can be. Sigh.. thanks for making me believe that fairytales and happy endings do exist. I’m so excited for That Baby and hope you’ll still continue to write about their journey. I mean, life doesn’t just stop because you’re all grown up right? I have the ebooks and will definitely have to pick up the paperback versions. I think it would be awesome if you released a book set for the series in the future. 🙂

    1. Thank you soooo much! You have no idea how notes like this just totally make my day, week, month!! I’m glad you enjoyed the characters and they made you believe in fairytales. I think we should all marry our own princes 🙂 Once That Baby comes out, then I will do a boxed set!

  18. OMG. Hi! I couldn’t thank you enough!I just can’t express how much I loved the That Boy series. It’s heartwarming! It’s been a while since I’ve read something that got me and blew me away. With this book, I wish that I could read it all over again for the first time! You that even when I’m done reading it I find myself browsing through the pages again. Ugh, the book is so cute and so is Phillip. Thank you for writing this awesome piece!

    1. Thank you!!! You’re so sweet!! I’m really glad you enjoyed the books. I loved letting everyone see how dreamy Phillip is and letting JJ grow up in That Wedding. And I’m starting to work on That Baby!!

  19. hi i just read your preview for That Boy and i absolutely love it so far! I live in Toronto and for some reason I can’t find That Boy in stores (Indigo bookstore) and libraries, i know that the ebook version is available in Itunes but I was wondering if you know where I can buy a paperback copy of your book?

    1. You can get the PDF version to read on your computer, or download the free kindle app to your smart phone, tablet, or computer. There will be a paperback version available on Amazon in about 2-3 weeks. A week or two after that you will be able to special order it from most bookstores.

      1. thank you! but i couldn’t wait to finish reading it so i decided to get it from iTunes. OMG That Boy and That Wedding was definitely one of my favorites books that I have ever read. Thank you so much for writing these book, i can’t decide which one is my fave cuz their both amazing! I love that Jadyn and Philip finally got married and Danny is just hilarious! 😀 Hopefully someday I will find my prince and marry him. 🙂 I seriously cannot wait for That Baby and your new book Stalk Me.

  20. I just want to say THANK YOU JILLIAN!!! I fell in love with this book and it becomes one of my favorite books I’ve ever read. Actually I blame you for make me believe in “Prince Charming” again! I love Phillip so much, and love Danny and JJ too!! Just Thank you!! This book is MAGIC 🙂

    1. Aww. Thank you!! I totally believe in prince charming and was smart enough to marry mine 🙂 Have you read the sequel, That Wedding? I might love it even more than the first book because you get to see how adorable Phillip is on a daily basis. He’s pretty dreamy.

      1. hahaha Actually I’m reading That Wedding and I’m completely in love with Phillip!! ♥ That boy is the most perfect character I’d ever read about. I want a Phillip for me 🙂 And Danny is pretty adorable too!! I want both of them haha

        I can’t wait for read more of your work!!! The Keatyn Chronicles: Stalk me… is in my books to read in GR.

        1. Phillip is just dreamy and he and Jadyn are very well matched. Danny is so funny. And I’m super excited for Keatyn Chronicles too! It’s a six book series and there’s so much that goes on in the books, I have a huge calendar to keep track of it all!

  21. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!! IT WAS SO AMAZING!!!!!!!!! IM READING THAT WEDDING NOW!!!!!! THEY ARE NOW BOTH MY FAVE BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!1

          1. Omg words cannot describe my emotions. I finally found your blog! The that boy series is by far my favorite series to date. I’m waiting for that baby but its hard. How many books will there be? I want the story to go on forrever! I hope its not a trilogy? After that baby make more! I love how you continued after the wedding (that baby) because most people leave us hanging!

          2. That Baby will end the trilogy, but I might do a book about their kids.

  22. I Loved your books so much!!!!!!! That boy and That Wedding are my favorite books and I can’t wait until that baby comes out! I REALLY REALLY think there should be a movie, I could kind of imagine the scences in my head as i was reading! I can’t wait until that baby comes out and I told all my friends about your books. Thank you so much for writing such amazing books!!!

  23. I purchased That Boy on a whem… and I am absolutely in love with it! I am obviously just a teenage girl at heart and absolutely love reading from this perspective! I cant wait to read That Wedding! I have to say, the emotion in this book is amazing, it took me back to my middleschool/high school years very vividly. I also love the fact that the parents were best friends and the kids are best friends, I literally told my best friend that i want OUR kids to be that way!! Thank you for writing a book that is amazingly funny, meaningful and sheds light on the amazing friendships that us tomboyish girls have with their best friends that happen to be boys! I look forward to more books from you!

  24. I absolutely love That Boy and That Wedding!!!!! They are my favorite books of all time!!!!!!!! It made me cry when JJ’s parents died…;(. JJ is one lucky girl!!!!!!

  25. Hey! I really want to read this book (and the sequel!) and I was just wondering if you ever plan for them to come out in a paperback or hardcover version. I’m a stickler for actually holding a book! Either way, I hope to read it soon! I’ve heard nothing but good things about it! Keep up the good work!

      1. That’s awesome! Can’t wait! 🙂 I just read the ebook previews and I just love the way you write!

      1. I can’t wait for that baby!! I will be waiting outside and camping outside the store if thats what it will take!

  26. Hey Jillian! I just wanted to tell you how amazing both books were! They wre so wonderfukl i couldnt put them down. they r literally the best things i have ever read. plz write that baby! i just need more boooks from you!!!!!!!! and i was really wondering if there will ever be a movie? i think there should be! So please try and make a movie of these amazing creations! do u think its even possible?

  27. Love these books(:
    I think maybe there should even be one from the boys’ perspectives…

  28. Sing lenguage is so cool I want to learn and I belive that its importat to know a bit because you might never now when it be helpful and atually english is my foreing language I have no idea how it went until thursday but I’m not bad trasnlating than writing I do my worst

  29. I’ve made a translation of the first part from english to spanish because of my enlgish teacher asked us to chose one book and I was like That boy or That wedding so my bf said that boy and I hope it ended like you would like to be I wish I could send it to you but I have no idea if you understand spanish lol but I loved the way it went 😉

      1. sorry I didn’t know how to said what I meant is like I wish the translation sounds as good as the book it self and I just did the begging I suck at french I started and I quit right away I do understand with no need to study it but still I suck it makes a huge mess in my head because is something between spanish and english so I suck

  30. I just read this book and it is absolutely amazing!!- love it so much and so so excited for that wedding. It kind of reminds me of this other book called The Boys Next Door by Jennifer Echols- another great book. ( but i think i like that boy better :)..Anyway this song makes me think of Phillip and Jay, it’s one of my all time favorite bands-safetysuit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uklcQrSj_9E

    1. That is a great song and very fitting for how Phillip feels about her. In That Wedding you will learn how Jadyn has always felt about Phillip and why she acted like she was oblivious to it all. You’ll see her grow up and deal with some of her issues in this book.
      I’m glad you enjoyed That Boy. And having my name even in the same sentence as Jennifer Echols is pretty exciting. She’s an incredible author.

  31. one of the best books i have read in a long time! i am so excited for the sequel to come out! i already read the sample you let out and i was so sad when i could continue!!

  32. I finally finished reading That Boy! So cute and fun. On a serious note, it really made me decide that next time I renew my driver’s liscense, I’m going to add “organ donor” to it. I don’t know why, but in the past it always freaked me out. After the hospital scene in your book, I realized it is totally the right thing to do! 🙂 Ready for that wedding!

  33. OMG THIS IS ONE OF MOST FAVORITE BOOKS IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD! I fell in love with this book from the start and cannot wait for the wedding! i <3 JJ and Phillip and cannot wait to see them be together forever! I only have 3 top fav authors and you are one of them!Cannot wait for the next book!
