Review: Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen

The new series is set in Vermont. True North is populated by the tough, outdoorsy mountain men that populate the Green Mountain State. They raise cows and they grow apples. They chop a lot of wood, especially when they need to blow off steam. (Beards are optional but encouraged.) 

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.

The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they’d shared a couple of steamy nights together. But that was a lifetime ago. 

At twenty-seven, Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, three siblings and a dotty grandfather. He doesn’t have time for the sorority girl who’s shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price. 

Vermont was never in Audrey Kidder’s travel plans. Neither was Griff Shipley. But she needs a second chance with the restaurant conglomerate employing her. Okay—a fifth chance. And no self-righteous lumbersexual farmer will stand in her way. 

They’re adversaries. They want entirely different things from life. Too bad their sexual chemistry is as hot as Audrey’s top secret enchilada sauce, and then some.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
4.5 Princess STARS

Love me a man that respects the earth, mother nature and is not afraid to get a little dirty!! This was a fun, sexy read.

Griffin Shipley and Audrey Kidder have history. A couple hooks-up in college and then they both went their own ways. But when fate, circumstance or just plain old life has them meeting again, they both can't forget the hot chemistry that brought them together in the first place. And they can't deny that it's still there.

If you're a foodie or have a real appreciation for food to table cooking, nature, produce and sexy farmers, you'll really enjoy this! Griffin is sexy and an all around stand up guy. Seriously, you can't help but love him. And Audrey is funny, determined and cute. These two together were a lot of fun.

This is a romance novel at it's best. In it’s simplicity of execution with lovable characters, a good paced, straightforward story with laughs, romance and not much angst.

“Every touch was a command, as if I’d been placed on this earth to pleasure him. Judging from the way my body responded to his touch, perhaps I had.”

If you're looking for a feel good romance, you have to meet this hot sexy farmer and cute chef! I'm looking forward to Zach and Jude's stories.
