    *** We are continuing exactly where we ended in Love and Honor. We get super sexy good times with each couple, as they all await the wedding ! Young Noel is doing better now, surrounded by loving family and dear friends. The discovery of him being transgender was accepted by this big glorious mess of a family. They are so crazy at times, but still are deeply loving, accepting, and understanding, always ready to lend a hand. I've loved these amazing characters, and the fun stories they tell. Even the darkest tales from pasts, will be met with open arms and unconditional love. It is now the day of the wedding.... Each story is a cliffhanger, and you'll be excited to get to the next one. Highly recommended ! ENJOY ! ======================

    Seriously this series is killing me ! I'm invested in the characters and would like some closure but after 5 books we still don't have the wedding

    So look, I know these books aren't going to win any writing awards but I always enjoy them and reading about and catching up with the gorgeous men in this series. I'm a little gutted that I have to wait for another book for the weddings when it was said that this would be the last book, but at least I'll get to read more about the sexy cowboy!The only negatives for me here are that the sex scenes are very samey between each couple and also I know they are all very close and touchy feely but I feel a bit like one scene actually passed over into cheating, which is not cool C.J Bishop!!!

    I'm quite surprised nobody seems to have a problem with the barely 14 year old kid already being in the middle of a sex change??? I'm all for tolerance but no mother would accept to let their 12 year old kid who hasn't even hit puberty to take this kind of medication. This series is starting to get in my nerves and I'm really starting to consider dropping this author. It's become so unbelievable. There are so many raped kids that after a while you go "meh" another rape. The first books were real with genuine connections now it's just one raped kid after another and it has desensitized me. Now, it's all about bible extracts which get so patronizing I mean c'mon we get it! It's about couples crying just from looking at each other like where are the men? I only see mushy dialogues, cheesy lines and watering eyes. Besides Horacio and max have completely disappeared that they're the only reason I keep skimming just to see if they show up at some point. Another thing, the author pretty much has gotten lazy by recycling the same pattern over and over because now Nolan is being black mailed too. It's gonna end the same way but at some point you have to think of something else than just 2 guys meet- 2 guys fall instantly in love - 1 guy has a problem- 1guy pushes other guy away - other guy seeks help- 2 guys have their HEA......

    I need moreThat's a cruel trick that the book ended abruptly...I was reading along so involved that I didn't realize that was the end, I thought something went wrong with my kindle. As always, I love what CJ Bishop has done with this family of characters. There are so many of the boys and I love them all. I love how they all appear in each book in some way. These Phoenix boys steal your heart. They are all so endearing. I hope that these newer characters like Grid will have more of their own story. Can't wait for the next book. I'm completely in love with these characters.

    This is the master. I would pay $5 a week like a tv saga to keep her books coming faster. Shes created a soap opera that i wish would never end. Excellent writing and story telling and the love is real. Can't have it any better that.

    These couples are always great to read!3 - I hate these short stories in the middle of the big story - starsThe men have a dare to keep. No sex until the wedding night. That's only 2 problem, right?CJ Bishop writes some hot and steamy men! I love their stories and how they intertwine. I just wish the stories were all together into one book instead of spread out in little increments. Getting a second glimpse into Dane's perfect cousin and his implied sexuality was interesting although Dane was extremely dense to it. We also get some more info on Chris. But in this world every and any man mentioned has gay tendencies or is just outright gay. Maddie seems to be the only exception to this rule. Not that I mind, more stories with hot men to come!

    Loved it!This series, "The Phoenix Wedding" , is a must read. I've read all of the Phoenix series and I've recommended all of the books to all of my fellow readers. Love the stories, it captures you right from the beginning. Love it!!! Keep them coming. I can't wait to read what will happen next to the Phoenix family. Devoted fan DB

    This is the usual insane and sexy ride you'd expect from CJ BishopArgh, this is another part in the ever increasing saga of the Phoenix boys' marriage extravaganza and it ends before the actual event once again!I knocked a star off for that but otherwise, there's the usual sexy times with these ridiculously hot men and a bit more fleshing out of Grid and Nolan's story and the potential for more to come with Dane's cousin Freddie.You know what to expect from the Phoenix Club stories and this delivers in spades with a dry humour and a whole lot of sexually frustrated men on a no nookie before marriage ban leading to all levels of creativity.I hope there isn't a huge wait for book six and that we actually get the HEA in that one, but I also won't be complaining if the sexy bunch of men in these stories stick around a bit more.Lots of cuteness in this one alongside the fabulous relationships they've all worked so hard to get in all the previous books.A couple of typos and some odd tenses at times but I really don't care with these stories, they're just too much fun to read.

    A MUST READ SERIES!!!!!OMG your killing me. I just love these boys, these men this family. The unconditional love, loyality, trust, compassion, safety , it's remarkable. What this group of friends have endure, some unspeakable acts, some more vile than others , but hate, pain, and hurt is all the same, and to come out on the other side , willing to trust and love someone is a true testament that love tops hate, love can't erase your past, but love can help you heal and open your heart to the future. Clint is still my man, but I'm so happy for all of them. They deserve every ounce of happiness AMAZING

    Out of this world!!!Ever time I think CJ Bishop has written the best book I've ever read she writes a new one and that becomes the best book I have ever read! This book is full of old amazing characters like Gabe and Cole, Dane and Angel and all the rest but it's also full of new members of the family. Freddy, Noah and Noel. As always in one of these books it's full of emotion. Sometimes you laugh happy laughter and sad. Sometimes you cry happy tears and sad. These books build these men, this family into the best people in the world. You would be so proud to be a member of their family. From the first word to the last you are a part of their amazing journey and I always hate the last word in the book because it means I have to wait to be part of the family again. If you haven't read a book by CJ Bishop start with at the beginning I promise it's a journey that you won't want to stop. To the author you did it again and thank you for that.

    It just keeps getting better I'm loving this! These fellas absolutely deserve their happy beginnings because their lives are not ending but finally beginning to bring them towards the never ending happiness they so deserve. They've all been to hell and back and I cannot wait to be st the weddings.

    5 sexy starsWhat can you say!!! The day has finally arrived. Everyone will get their fairytale ending and love is on the rise for a few of our supporting cast. Nolan and Grip, Chris and Noel and last but not least Clint and Alex. Can not wait until those stories are written.

    Brilliant - As Always.I could cry at the thought the next story could be our last glimpse into the lives of the Phoenix Club boys (and friends and family). We've invested so much emotion into them they feel like our own family. I'm very much looking forward to them all getting their happy ever after.

    Love the story line as usual. Noah & Noel's storyline, is heart wrenching. Cannot wait for the actual wedding of the "Boys"!I really love this series and I highly recommend them to my friends and coworkers. I cannot wait for the next installment! How long do I have to wait?!

    Another great story The only problem I have with these books is the huge amount of sex scenes and all the "admiring" each other. The story is really great and you can just skip all the "uungh" like I do.

    One more puzzle piece The 5th installment on the road to the alter was definitely touching. This family hasn't had the easiest of paths but with Love, with Faith, and a whole load of Support. I can't wait to see where their path continues to go.

    Another great chapter in this story.This series just gets better and better. Each book goes on to tell you a little more about all these peoples lives. It is just so interesting to see what is next. You just can't help yourself from falling so deeply into them. Can't wait for the next one.
