This is the fourth and sadly the final book in the Bride Quartet series.
Mackenzie, Parker, Laurel and Emmaline have been friends since childhood and have formed a successful wedding planning business together called Vows. Although they help thousands of couples organise their biggest day, all have been unlucky in love. Until now....
Parker Brown turned the quartet's childhood game of Wedding Day into their dream jobs. And now she's the face of Vows. The one who meets every bride's demands; keeps every event on schedule; and brings Emma's romantic flowers, Laurel's delicious treats, and Mac's stunning photography together in one glorious package. She knows how to make dreams come true. Mechanic Malcom Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker Brown with her mile-long legs is no exception. But as a good friend to Parker's brother, Mal knows that moving from minor flirtation to major hookup is a serious step. Now man has rattled Parker in a long time, but the motorcycle-riding, raven-haired Mal seems to have a knack for it. His passionate kisses always catch her of guard, much like her growing feelings for him. Parker's business risks have always paid off, but now she'll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart.
Happily Ever After is a great last book, tying up the series and giving us our very last happy ever after within the series. In the previous books I didn't think much of Parker, she was a great friend to the other girls and was brilliant at running Vows but other than that I hadn't given her all that much thought but as the books progressed and the more I read about Parker the more I started to like her, especially in Savour The Moment!
I adored the relationship Parker had with Mal and how you were never really sure how Parker would react to some things. Moments with Parker I did enjoy would have to be the motorcycle bet, where Mal took her for a meal, meeting Mal's Mother, and of course the ending!
Favourite Quote: "If you’re looking for the full deal, the till-death deal, then look at me. No one’s ever going to love you, stick by you, understand how you work the way I do."
It was truly great to see the whole group together and happy at the end with how their life had come full circle and I especially enjoyed how the book ended with the girls. I will admit that I did drop a tear or two at the sweet and lovely story.
Nora Roberts is a brilliant and talented author! I can not wait to read her next book Chasing Fire (which reminds me of Blue Smoke!) out in April.
