3 1 2 stars sigh I really wanted to love this one, but I didn t I did like Del and Lauren, but I didn t like the conflict It was weak, since she d known him her whole life It felt like the author had to come up with something to make them have it out before they got an HEA I am so looking forward to Parker and Mal s book We get to visit them a bit and this one, and I kept wishing for this to be their book Ah well, we can t love em all. And yet another Nora Roberts winner in this amazing series And this time, though it still revolved around the friendship between Mac, Emma, Laurel and Parker, the story was mostly about the romance

the friendship between Mac, Emma, Laurel and Parker, the story was mostly about the romance between life long friends Yes, you d think it was pretty much the same as in Bed of Roses, between Emma and Jack, but the thing is, Laurel and Del, Parker s older brother have known and been friends each other for her entire life So the switch held muchdanger and possible obstacles For them both, but mostly inside their little tribe.So the same fears and worries as with Emma and Jack were there, but muchaugmented, because of that long er friendship.But it was beautifully done, if you ask me, much better than in Bed of Roses, especially since the hero Del had no obvious and well known commitment issues Jack had He was muchlaid back and relaxed when it came to his thing with Laurel and he had no compunction in stating his love for her, since everybody knew he loved her Pity, that, since the words held no special meaning being said so many times before, no wonder she was skeptical and a little skittish.And that is the biggest problem I had with Laurel It didn t overly bother me, since I understood her reservations, but still, sometimes she came off as a bit too impulsive in her judgment And too stubborn to listenor talk about what bothered her But, her love for Del was there, and I forgave her Now, onto the less friendshipromance thingy Well, it s true Sure, the girls were still tight as ever, they talked, they laughed, they cried, they ribbed each other, but there was that much appreciated lack of friendly intervention at the end, that was present in both previous novels, and an especial burden in Bed of Roses First, it was because Laurel wasreserved by nature, preferring to solve her problems on her own and second, there was no big rift between her and Del to demand an intervention in the first place Sure, she made a mess with her stubbornness and refusal to listen, but it was quickly resolved.And who resolved it Del, of course Who s become my favorite hero in this series a few pages into this story Who wouldn t want a guy like Del Who wouldn t love a guy like Del He was over protective, self assured, caring, loving, tender, funny, sexy my mouth watered reading the pond scene , and romantic the awwwwww factor in the ending was all him.I love my girls the Quartet and I love Carter and Jack, but Del is by far my favorite.I m sure he ll fall into second place today, as I start reading Happy Ever After, because there s just something about Malcolm Kavanaugh that inspires me I cannot wait to read about him and Parker If the sparkage these two produced in Savor the Moment is any indication, the fireworks will go through the roof when it s their turn Can t wait happy squeal Well, this series is shaping to be my favorite short series I ve read in my life Romantic, funny, sexy, sensual, light weight, emotion engagingA truly awesome read #FREE PDF ã Savor the Moment Ì Wedding baker Laurel McBane is surrounded by romance working at Vows wedding planning company with her best friends Parker, Emma, and Mac But she s too low key to appreciate all the luxuries that their clients seem to long for What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker s older brother Delaney, on whom she s had a mega crush since childhood But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her or so she thinks When Laurel s quicksilver moods get the better of her leading to an angry, hot, all together mind blowing kiss with Del she ll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever 2.5 This book is difficult to rate because I both liked it and didn t It was an okay story overall, and I liked the characters, although I did get tired of Laurel at times Mostly, though, I got stuck on the snappy dialog that made everyone sound like characters out of a TV sit com or Rom Com movie Not only did everyone in the book respond with one or two word phrases, but everyone sounded identical Even the older Mrs Grady spoke mainly in predicates Some of the dialog was funny

got stuck on the snappy dialog that made everyone sound like characters out of a TV sit com or Rom Com movie Not only did everyone in the book respond with one or two word phrases, but everyone sounded identical Even the older Mrs Grady spoke mainly in predicates Some of the dialog was funny and clever, but it all sounded completely scripted, like the actors on a Disney channel tween show So no matter how cute the story was, I was always completely distracted by dialog and the fact that no one talks that way in real life I know we don t talk in complete sentences all the time, but take a look at the book Everyone answers in weird sentence fragments And, after 3 books, I m over the heart warming groups of loyal best girlfriends I started to feel a little gaggy at times Everyone is so perfect and makes all these perfectly wonderful decisions.I also got tired of the repeated descriptions of the characters workouts I can maybe see describing the cakes, or flowers, but Parker s exercise routine and Laurel s, and Mac s, and Mal s, for goodness sakes This book was neat I can t wait to listen to the last book This is probably my least favorite installment into this series and my least favorite couple, and I still really enjoy both the book and the couple Doesn t that speak volumes of my love for the series Laurel is an amazing pastry chef The wedding cakes she designs for her clients are beautiful enough to make angels weep, and are always lovingly personalized to each couple Parker has been her best friend for as long as she can remember, and she s been in love with Parker s older brother for alm This is probably my least favorite installment into this series and my least favorite couple, and I still really enjoy both the book and the couple Doesn t that speak volumes of my love for the series Laurel is an amazing pastry chef The wedding cakes she designs for her clients are beautiful enough to make angels weep, and are always lovingly personalized to each couple Parker has been her best friend for as long as she can remember, and she s been in love with Parker s older brother for almost as long Delaney has always viewed Laurel as another sister or at least, he did, until she completely destroyed that viewpoint by kissing the sisterly affection right out of him The relationship they build from the ashes of that familial fondness is sweet and funny.Laurel is incredibly sarcastic, and not the most optimistic of women Her surliness is at odds with her sunny blonde hair and cornflower blue eyes She s super entertaining, but I just don t connect quite as much with her as I do with the other three women that form the Quartet Same goes for Del He s a slick lawyer with a propensity for micromanaging the lives of those he loves, which drives Laurel insane But he s also incredibly kind and chivalrous, so it s hard to hold that against him But again, I just don t connect as much to him as I do to the other three men who fall in love with various members of the Quartet All of that being said, I still devoured this book cake pun intended When the weakest volume of a series is still 4 stars, you know it s a favorite I love the way Nora Roberts crafts her characters You re sure to fall in love with them while they fall in love with each other This third installment of The Bride Quartet doesn t disappoint in any way Del and Laurel verbally spar with each other and the dialogue snaps as you ll laugh at their witty comebacks at one another.While Mac and Carter continue to be my favorite couple of this series, this comes a very close second.Laurel is one tough cookie, to use a baking analogy, and she has love I love the way Nora Roberts crafts her characters You re sure to fall in love with them while they fall in love with each other This third installment of The Bride Quartet doesn t disappoint in any way Del and Laurel verbally spar with each other and the dialogue snaps as you ll laugh at their witty comebacks at one another.While Mac and Carter continue to be my favorite couple of this series, this comes a very close second.Laurel is one tough cookie, to use a baking analogy, and she has loved Del all her life, finally she decides to do something about it In comic retaliation, Del steals her shoes you ll have to read it to understand all of this.The love story is wonderful, but what makes this series so enjoyable is the four friends and the relationship they all have and the friendships between the men in their lives as they get to know one another The scenes where the four women are together, discussing everything from weddings, their own as well as others, to their love lives, troublesome parents, etc are often laugh out loud funny One last thing, I love all the initial speak that the girls do together and in this book, you ll learn a new one HJS.Oh, and even though we aren t yet to his story, I m already a teeny bit in lurve with Mal Can t wait for the final book 1 New York Times

much thought into it It s cute and cheesy, which everyone needs once in a while It reminds me of every little girl s fairy tale with the great company that the women own and rich good looking men after these women And, not to mention how quickly they get engaged I m over two years in and still no ring, how do these women do it Fell far below my expectations.I really had high hopes for this book given that the previous two installments of this series amazingly hit the mark for me But sadly, as far as I can tell, there was not much of a romantic spark between Delaney and Laurel here And frankly, if there had been any chemistry between them, it would have felt totally forced.Nope I wasn t pleased.The romance aspect fell flat in my opinion and the dialogue between Delaney and Laurel was slightly lackluster However, I Fell far below my expectations.I really had high hopes for this book given that the previous two installments of this series amazingly hit the mark for me But sadly,

pleased.The romance aspect fell flat in my opinion and the dialogue between Delaney and Laurel was slightly lackluster However, I absolutely enjoyed an unconditional love and true friendship between these four ladies Besides, the two couples from book 1 and 2 were so lovely that I couldn t stop smiling and I was very happy to see them together again.The most disappointing part about this book was Laurel , and this fact came as a shock to me Since I started reading this series, I saw no sign that she could be such an unpleasant character to read about But when I finally got to her own story, I found that she managed to annoy and bore me in equal measure I don t like this kind of heroine at all For me, she came acrosslike a bitter, sullen, and difficult woman I don t know Something about her rubbed me the wrong way most of the time and I have to say that I didn t enjoy her character throughout the entire story.Delaney was an ok hero but there was nothing particularly remarkable about him Of course, he was nice but the fact that he couldn t make me swoon over him says quite a lot about his character It might be because he was somehow overshadowed by the other characters I just wish there weredepth to his character.I felt like the ending was a bit rushed and unsatisfying It could have been better though.This wasn t a winner for me To tell you the truth, reading this one feltlike a chore than a pleasure to get through.By the way, I ll definitely read the last book in this Bride Quartet series Hopefully, it won t disappoint me like this one did 3 1 2 starsOnce again, NR proves how good she is when it comes to write friendship Unfortunately, that got in the way of the romance and I didn t connect with Del and Laurel s love story Del was a nice guy, but too smooth and perfect to raise my temperature Laurel was a bit harsher than him, but her bouts of temper felt forced to me because they were irrational and came out of nowhere Okay, that is known to happen in Romancelandia, but that behavior is usually associated with a character who 3 1 2 starsOnce again, NR proves how good she is when it comes to write friendship Unfortunately, that got in the way of the

that wasn t Laurel s case.So, all in all, this was a slightly better than average read to me, mostly because I enjoyed watching the friends dynamics Del and Laurel s romance was kind of meh I was happy with their HEA, but I wouldn t be devastated if they had decided to stay just friends.Now I have a long wait until Happy Ever After, the last book in the series I really hope it s worth the wait and the series ends with a bang
