New Love takes the cake in the third novel in Nora Roberts's new Bride Quartet-in a stunning French flap edition 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...

My thoughts:
I had a whole post already ready to go for this book last month and our computer was infected with a virus and I lost it along with a lot of other things. This is the third book in the Bride Quartet and it follows Laurel as she finds love with Parker's brother, Del. The cakes that Laurel designs for the couples getting married all sound so complex and beautiful, that is a skill I wish I had more of! While I enjoyed this book it took me longer to read than usual. I started to get annoyed with Laurel and her feelings of inadequacy and not being good enough for Del since her family didn't have the money his did. While I know that money will probably always divide the world to a certain point, I really wish people were more able to move past obstacles such as money to find happiness with the right person for the right reason.
