Bittersweet, 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.

When I saw this blurb my interest was definitely piqued. The authors were new to me, but I really enjoy trying new authors. This book wasn't quite what I expected, but I enjoyed it.

I have to flat out admit I love single dads. I don't know what it is, but if a story has it? Huge check in the plus column for me. I liked Elio here. I thought he was sweet and sexy and man, can he bake. I don't drink coffee (I know, I know) but maybe he could convert me to a coffee drinker.

Romy...well, I think Romy was relatable. Who doesn't want to lose a few extra pounds and have some romance? I just wish she hadn't felt such a strong urge to change herself to land a guy-BUT that's what I think a lot of women do. So I wanted to shake her sometimes, I can't lie lol. But I did like her.

There's definitely an attraction between these two-and everyone knows it. I did have a hard time with something though, and I don't want to exactly spoil it. It had me kind of annoyed to be honest, but I worked through it.

I liked the writing style. I liked the secondary characters, I thought they all brought something unique to the table. This story had a little of everything in there-drama, comedy, romance. I wanted just a bit more our of Romy and Elio, but overall I enjoyed this title and will try these authors again.

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?
