But besides the crappy shit that happens near the end there were some other red flags that bugged me. First I wasn't enthralled with this as I was with Mac's story. Everything about Mac and Carter came off natural and organic even with their ups and downs. Here everything seemed incredibly forced and overdone. It took me a good pages to even get into the story. Jack and Emma share 2 sporadic kisses before jumping into bed.
Emma, along with her childhood friends Parker, Mackenzie, and Laurel are the founders of Vows, a fictional wedding planning company in Connecticut. Jack is the childhood friend of Parker's brother.
Bound by deep bonds of friendship, the six of them consider themselves family. Emma and Jack have long been attracted to each other, but refrained from acting on those urges for fear of disrupting their friendship and that of the group in general. When they finally share their first kiss, it is obvious to both of them that they will no longer be able to fight the attraction. They agree to a fling and promise to remain friends when it has run its course.
As the story progresses, Emma falls in love and begins to take on more of a "girlfriend" role. Jack, always more wary of commitment, resists her overtures and wants to keep their relationship less serious. They eventually work through their conflict and Jack admits that he wants a future with Emma.
The four novels of the Bride Quartet share a strong emphasis on sisterhood. The heroines of the books bonded as children and have become sisters by choice. Throughout the series, they provide mutual support and acceptance of each other's quirks.
The emphasis on their careers and building their business means the heroines have little time for outside relationships, and they rely heavily on each other for comfort, help, and distractions.
Robb, has a heroine who has created a family from female friends and colleagues. Reviewer Jill M. Smith noted that the series allows Roberts to delve into how relationships can change over time.
A review in Publishers Weekly described the plot as fairly predictable, but praised Roberts' "effortless wit". The first novel of the series, Vision in White , had been the inspiration for a downloadable casual-play computer game. According to Roberts' website, game sales did not match the developer's expectations, and plans for sequels to the game were cancelled.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The New Yorker. Retrieved June 10, Emma has her demonic WTH? She catches him on a bad day which he warns her repeatedly but it seems to sail right over her head she ambushes him by pouring her heart out telling him she loves him and wants everything in return, when she doesn't get the response or reaction she wants she shuts him out and runs off.
Naturally Jack being a typical guy is too stunned and tries to process what she's telling him and instead of giving him the chance to actually TALK, she takes his stunned reaction and runs with it like a woman scorned. She draws the conclusion that he doesn't love her and never will. Oh Good lord. She gave Mac's psychotic narcissistic mother Linda a run for her money in the melodramatic drama queen department. She runs straight to the Quartet ladies for comfort with shaking hands and endless sobs included.
How could he do this to meeee?! I was really hoping here was when her friends would step in and talk some sense into her, especially Parker, the most level headed out of all.
But what do they do instead? They coddle her with 'there there, hush hush' and act horrified and crucify Jack for what he did and didn't say.
The jackass! How can he be so cruel?! Parker had me rolling my eyes the most with her overprotective smothering routine. Her exceedingly patronizing speech to Jack when he comes by to check up on Emma was ridiculous and unnecessary 'We all love you Jack.
I'll give you this. I'll forgive you Give it a damn rest. I seriously felt like I was missing something here with their soap opera reactions. Just because he pockets the keys in front of her and doesn't have words he's deemed the biggest asshole? I call bullshit. Not even.
But no he broke poor sweet-hearted perfect Emma's heart so he deserves to be drawn and quartered and banished from the Brown mansion.
He's not allowed to see or talk to or even explain to Emma until she's fully healed and once Parker thinks it's 'okay'. What kind of elementary fuckery is this?
Over dramatic much Roberts? YesISaidIt What was even more eye-roll inducing was Emma holing herself up in a dark room the very next day, drapes drawn, unable to move or get out of bed or eat ala Carrie when Big leaves her at the altar in Sex and the City. She needs time to heal after her "emotional upheaval" her words not mine.
Mama bear Parker is there to fuss and coo over her like the heartbroken child she is. This was cringe-worthy and embarrassing to sit through. Overblown to the extreme.
What was even more ridiculous was her contemplating moving to Jamaica and starting over because she can't bear to face Jack ever again, it hurts too much.
Girl, stop it. This all could have been avoided if you gave him the opportunity to actually speak instead of running off because you didn't hear what you wanted. Jack of course has to beg and crawl to even be permitted to see Emma again and apologize profusely more than necessary IMO over what a jerk he was.
He romances her and asks her to marry him all with Mama Bear Parker's stamp of approval. Tell me again how this is romantic? As someone who wants love and the whole package too, I was with Emma, empathized with her until she took a veering turn into MoronVille. Her whole meltdown after the fight was just silly, unnecessary, extremely overblown and childish.
Having the poor guy crawl and beg because he made a careless mistake is ridiculous and extreme in this case.
While his words were sweet and sincere during his ILY declaration it lost all poignancy for me considering the lengths he had to go through and how he was skinned alive over something so small. It ruined the HEA moment completely and lost all flavor for me as the reader. It came off like a parent supplicating a 2 year old after throwing a tantrum and giving them what they want in the end.
Not very flattering and just silly. Guys have their stupid moments, just like us ladies do too. No one was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and somewhere in all this juvenile overblown mess I was hoping one of the girls would point out to Emma 'don't you think you are overreacting?
Cut the guy some slack' but no.
