Firstly, I only read this book because my sister had it and I wanted to do some light reading. Not a very good read for non-fans of Nora Roberts. The book is too predictable. You could even predict what is going to happen in the next books in the series by reading this. And the story line is very typical and non entertaining. ( )

Wow, I totally forgot how much I disliked the heroine in book #2 until my re-read. Oh Emma, so perfect but a total jerk (I thought) Emma. Who even though she keeps telling her love interest (Jack) things are fine, throws a fit when he doesn't treat her like his girlfriend. And I ended up loathing the other characters in this book who decided that well they couldn't be friends with Jack anymore since Emma was so hurt. What are you? Teenagers? Who does mess like this? I actually booed when the HEA comes our way since I didn't think it was deserved at all.

Emma is the wedding florist for her and her friend's wedding business. Emma is looking for Mr. Right. She wants to be in a relationship, get married, and have kids. Of course she has a crush on Jack who wants none of those things.

Jack has a thing for Emma, but also has a thing for not committing to anyone. So of course this will totally be okay with Emma even though she knows before she gets involved with Jack, he is not looking for anyone to settle down with.

Honestly the chemistry between these two was meh. I actually think that Mac and Carter had better chemistry. And the whole book just felt off to me. I just hated that I was reading about a woman who was doing everything she could to make a guy catch feelings for her. And I hated how everyone was encouraging Emma in her nonsense.

The four friends were all kind of annoying in this one. I was just done with the whole group and their chosen freaking dudes in this one.

The wedding details (still boring). The endless discussion about the flower arranging that Emma was doing (good Lord make it stop). I just found myself bored for most of the book and did end up skimming a fair bit. I honestly thought that Roberts "In the Garden" series did a better job of discussing flowers/plants/etc. and making it organic to the overall story. This book just made everything about wedding planning sound tedious as hell.

But I really did get ticked towards the end when all of the so-called friends freeze Jack out after Emma seriously acted like a freaking child. Team Jack all the way and I wish he had thought more about being friends with people who would dispose of him so easily. ( )

Emmaline Grant has always firmly believed in love and romance and her job as the florist for Vows, a wedding planning company she co-owns with her three best friends, has always reinforced those beliefs. But when Emmaline begins to have more than friendly feelings for long-time friend Jack, whose never settled into a serious relationship in his life, both of them must consider whether risking their friendship as they know it is worth indulging their new attraction.

Second in a series, I enjoyed hanging out in the adept narrative hands of Nora Roberts. All of the characters are well fleshed out and she does an excellent job of highlighting the realities of being a wedding florist. The final conflict did feel a bit blown out of proportion by all sides but otherwise the novel was super solid and enjoyable. I look forward to picking up the remaining books in the quartet and spending more time with all of these characters. ( )

Emma Grant is one of the four women of the Bride Quartet, who started the wedding business "Vows", Emma's special talent is the floral side of weddings. Emma has a love and passion for anything that grows, and to make anything beautiful for the bride. Emma is one of those women, that attract men like bees to honey. However she is pretty picky, and is looking for love and marriage and a family and the "happily ever after" that she has always dreamed of. When her close friend Parker, whom she has known close to forever, kisses her one night, and a passion flares up surprisingly between them, she knows in her heart that she could definitely fall in love with him. Parker has always had a woman on his arm, but never a strong serious relationship that lasts. Ever since his parents got divorced, he has a fear of a woman coming into his home and taking over. However he always has had a thing for Emma, and when he kisses her one night, he knows things between them will never be the same. For their is a pulling force that he can't deny with her, and he knows he never would want to live a life without her, but the road is bound to get rocky with these two. One wanting a long term love, and the other wanting something just temporary; but sometimes love has different plans.

Well I have to say that I truly enjoyed reading the second one of the Bride Quartet of Nora Roberts, and if the rest of the series is as good as these two books that I have read so far, it will be no doubt my favorite series of hers. My heart just swarmed to this couple, especially to Emma. Emma is such a sweet loving woman, who only dreams of finding love and marriage and a happily ever after. Since her parents have had such a great marriage, she wants the same. However, she never thought that she would fall in love with the one person she knows is the least committed person when relationships are involved. However she just decides to enjoy the moment, and though she knows she is falling for him, she doesn't want to ruin what they have quite yet. Parker however is totally opposite when a woman is involved, but with things progressing with Emma he denies to himself what he truly feels with her, and what he wants with her for the rest of his life. There is a bit of a rocky road ahead for these two, but its a enjoyable and satisfying story and very emotional especially toward the end, that I definitely had to get a box of tissues. I don't know if its better than the first one, but I think they are on the same level, although I have to say that I love this couple a bit more. I also enjoyed the emotional side of this tender love story. I am so glad that I have finally read this one, and I recommend it to anyone that likes a good emotional love story. ( )

Though there are few surprises in this cute courtship, those with a TiVo full of Bridezillas should enjoy it, thanks largely to Roberts's effortless wit.
