happy ever after

Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet, #4)


My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"Dreams are realized in the eagerly-awaited fourth novel in Nora Roberts's Bride Quartet.

As the public face of Vows wedding planning company, Parker Brown has an uncanny knack for fulfilling every bride's vision. She just can't see where her own life is headed.

Mechanic Malcomb Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker is no exception. Both know that moving from minor flirtation to major hook-up is a serious step.

Parker's business risks have always paid off, but now she'll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart..."

This is the book where everything ended and as expected, it ended with happily ever after scenes. Well, if you're the type of person who expects perfection when things come out as a surprise, don't read the book. It is, a romance novel and it must end happily, romantically - with the reader wearing a smile wider than Joker's.

However, we also must be fair that when it comes to romance novel, it is very much depending on description and the flow. I personally find that Bride Quartet meddled in the simplest issues and eventually telling us the common scenes in the battle of sexes. But not everyone has the idea on how to transform that into a story and Nora Roberts, in my opinion, is someone who manage to address each scenarios in 4 books.

It's just that when I was reading the book, I couldn't help finding similarities in each character and the common background of their problems. Maybe, we think that this kind of things can be boring but in another way, yes, sometimes a known story is a bitter fact to swallow.

I'm giving 3 stars for Book 4 since as for me, it was a bit to rushy in the closing where the author was trying to hard to get to the epilogue and made us lost the romantic senses. Well, maybe because the 2 leading characters are not as romantic as the other 6 but then again in my opinion, it was much enjoyable if those 2 characters could do something unexpected and out of bound. It will help the Joker's smile on the dreamy silly readers.

Like me.
