New Release Book Review: Bittersweet by Carmen Jenner & Lauren K. McKellar



an all-new hilarious romantic standalone from USA Today bestselling authors 

Carmen Jenner & Lauren McKellar is available NOW!


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.

My Thoughts

Bittersweet was an enjoyable read with plenty of laughs and descriptions of delectable desserts. 

It’s a light, easy to read book but it felt like the book was chopped in thirds which I did find a touch distracting. 
The first third there were plenty of laughs. 
The next third, there was a lull in the action, the couple spent time apart and the story fell flat.
The last third is when the action picks up again but the tone is much more serious than the comedy we started out with.

As for the secondary characters, well Coco was beyond cute. And I loved Nico! I think I was supposed to look down on his desire to do nothing but frankly, it was candid and refreshing. Heck, I‘m jealous! I would not say no to his lifestyle. I hope Nico gets his own book.
