Bittersweet, an all-new hilarious romantic standalone from USA Today bestselling authors Carmen Jenner & Lauren McKellar is available NOW!

Bittersweet_Final_Full_Wrap




From two USA Today bestselling authors comes a tale of miscommunication and muffins.
Romy Love knows weddings. As the author of a hugely successful wedding blog, you’d think she’d have love covered. It is her last name, after all.
When it comes to her big day, Romy has the flowers picked out, a dress collecting dust in the back of her closet, and a preacher on standby. There’s just one problem: the groom doesn’t know it yet.
Romy has eyes for the Italian coffee god and single dad who owns the bakery in her building—she also has plans for his delicious buns—but in order to get her happily-ever-after, she has a few things to check off her list first:
Lose twenty pounds
Take over the blogging world one wedding at a time
Make Coffee Hottie fall in love with me
Yeah, this shouldn’t be difficult at all.

Review:

Rating: 1 out of 5 stars

Let me tell you something about this book that most people won't. Up to 43% Elio and Romy spend their time flirting with each other and never saying how they feel out loud. Due to a couple of situations that led to huge misunderstandings neither of them wants to have a romantic relationship with the other and Romy moves on to another man. At 43%! From the 43% mark 'till the 85th she is dating another man. And she also sleeps with him. Her reason for sleeping with him is her kiss with Elio. Does this make sense to you? In order to fix her sort of cheating, she sleeps with the guy she dates and he is hiding an anaconda in his pants. But the act itself wasn't good and that's where I stopped skimming the book. She slept with the other guy when the book was 73% done while she had only kissed the hero. What had started as a sweet book became sour and bitter which actually explains the title. Of course, the other dude turned out to be a douche and at the 85% mark, Elio and Romy become sort of romantically involved. Doesn't that describe a great romance story? I want to know which author wrote the first part of the book, so I can follow her work and which author wrote the second part, so I can avoid her future works. The book turned out to be awful.

Excerpt:
Confident I no longer look like a cave troll, I grab my keys and wallet and rush downstairs. Elio is just turning the sign in the window when I virtually slam my body against it because I was running full-tilt down the stairs, and I can’t slow my velocity. He gives a startled laugh, and I flame bright red. Elio abandons his ‘closed sign and opens the door.“Hey.” “Hi. Sorry about that.” “Couldn’t wait to see me, huh?” His eyes burn with mischief. I blush and desire arcs through me, because really, it should be illegal for anyone to look that delicious in jeans and a T-shirt with a dishtowel slung over his shoulder. “Ha! Yeah.” I shake my head.“I mean no. I mean, Coffee. I’m lagging. Please, I’m really sorry. I know you’re closed and you wanna get home, and why wouldn’t you? It’s not like you want to stay at the shop all day when there’s wine to drink and cheese to nibble and classic books to read.” He frowns.“That’s your impression of me? That I nibble cheese while reading classic literature.” “And the wine,” my mouth supplies unhelpfully. He chuckles.“You may need a crash course in what men do after work. Here’s a hint: it’s not nibbling anything. Unless, of course, it comes to ear lobes.” Oh, wow. Okay. I would definitely prefer that to an expensive gouda. He grins.“Come on. I’ll do you better than just a coffee.” “Excuse me?” I squeak. Now he laughs outright.“Relax,Romy. My nonna is here, my sister too, and a bossy four-year-old. I promise, I won’t bite.” Not even if I want you to?
