Author: Nora Roberts
Publisher: Piaktus, 2009
Genre(s): Romance, Realistic Fiction
The second book of Bride Quartet is focused on Emmaline "Emma" Grant and the Quartet's good friend Jack Cooke.
A born romantist, Emma longs for real love with lots of candles, roses, and romance. Also a born exotic beauty, she's dated many men, but never found The One. When one day her secret crush on Jack (and his secret attraction to her) results in a hot, breath-taking kiss, the rocky relationship between the commitmentphobe Jack and looking-for-forever Emma starts...
Emma and Jack are my least favorite couple in the Quartet. I just didn't care for them. Emma's too much of a romantist for me to relate to her, and Jack... dunno. Yeah, yeah, he's handsome, smart and blah blah blah but I just simply didn't care what they did, which made it hard to read through the book. Bed of Roses is one of the Nora Roberts book you don't really look forward to re-reading.
I rated this book 3.5 Kisses only because I liked the secondary characters and their wedding business. Emma's job as florist was more interesting than the development of her relationship, in my opinion.
