As little girls MacKensie, Emma, Laurel, and Parker spent hours acting out their perfect make believe “I do” moments. Years later their fantasies become reality when they start their own wedding planning company to make every woman’s dream day come true. With perfect flowers, delicious desserts, and joyful moments captured on film, Nora Roberts’s Bride Quartet shares each woman’s emotionally magical journey to romance.
In Bed of Roses, florist Emma Grant is finding career success with her friends at Vows wedding planning company, and her love life appears to be thriving. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn’t found Mr. Right. And the last place she’s looking is right under her nose.
But that’s just where Jack Cooke is. He’s so close to the women of Vows that he’s practically family, but the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. When Emma returns his passion—kiss for blistering kiss—they must trust in their history…and in their hearts.
I read this book in just about a day and loved it! It's the second book in Nora Roberts' series, but I read it last because I could never find it when I needed it. I'm so happy that my friend lent it to me finally!
Emma and Jack are a fun couple. They've known each other for years, have secretly had crushes on each other, but never show their feelings until now. Emma is a true romantic at heart, but knows that if she moves too fast, she'll scare Jack off. But at the same time, she wants to be true to herself and not hide how she feels. Jack on the other hand, is a little afraid of commitment, though he doesn't seem to realize that about himself. Thankfully, their friends are there to support them and help both Emma and Jack figure out their real feelings towards each other.
I think this may be my favorite book of the series, though Laurel and Del's story is right up there as well! I just found Emma and Jack to be so sweet and really fun to read about. If you've read anything by Nora Roberts before, definitely read this as well! And if you haven't, but really enjoy romance stories, pick these up!!
