My Thoughts:

This book was a really quick read and it was a lot of fun and was super sweet. It’s the kind of book that is easy to read in one sitting and to get lost in for a bit.

Romy is a character that a lot of people can relate to. She can be insecure at times and doubts herself. She is trying to get her footing and figure out what she wants in life. I liked her a lot and really felt for her. I also really liked Elio. He is such a sweetheart and so so charming. He is a single Dad and the way he is with his daughter Coco will melt your heart. These two clearly belong together and they dance around each other and it was so sweet.

A lot of this book hinges on miscommunication though and it can be SO FRUSTRATING at times. So much of this could have been solved with a conversation between the two people, but they both jumped to conclusions and got stubborn. And even though this is frustrating it’s not unbelievable. People get hurt and don’t always act rationally, so while it’s hard to watch these two go through this, it’s not out of the ordinary. And there was a twist thrown in there that threw me for a bit, so that was fun.

All in all, Bittersweet was a good read and I really enjoyed it. I’ve loved Carmen Jenner for a while now and this team up with Lauren K. McKellar was a hit. If you’re looking for something fun, you can’t go wrong here.


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?
