Author: Nora Roberts
Book: 4 of Bride Quartet
Found: repeat read
Rating: 5 voodoos
Parker Brown turned the quartet’s childhood game of Wedding Day into their dream jobs. And now she’s the face of Vows—the one who meets every bride’s demands; keeps every event on schedule; and brings Emma’s romantic flowers, Laurel’s delicious treats, and Mac’s stunning photgraphy together in one glorious package. She knows how to make dreams come true…
Mechanic Malcom Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker Brown—with her mile-long legs—is no exception. But as a good friend to Parker’s brother, Mal knows that moving from minor flirtation to major hookup is a serious step.
No man has rattled Parker in a long time, but the motorcycle-riding, raven-haired Mal seems to have a knack for it. His passionate kisses always catch her of guard, much like her growing feelings for him. Parker’s business risks have always paid off, but now she’ll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart.
Statistically, my favourite male is in the last book.The last book is also where you get cute little wrap ups from the other books too. I do have to admit though that my ratings for this series have been based off of my first read. When I re-read them, I didn’t feel the same as the first time, like I have with other series. While the women seemed a little too ‘whatever’ about some things, they certainly hit the spot when you’re after a little romance.
Unlike many other sets of her books, these were not touched with the supernatural, ghosts or even a secret. All that joined them was a shared lifestyle/job. Another abnormality was that there were 4 books not 3 (previous set of 4 was due to the 4th book added later).
While Mal was my favourite guy (not just because of the name) Parker was not my favourite woman. Nora Roberts has types. With this series, it seemed like she used up all the features on the others first, but perhaps it was because Parker’s personality WAS control.
It was exciting to see Mac’s wedding, though a little disappointing not to get to see the massive wedding of their careers go down.
