Bittersweet releases in just a couple of weeks and if there is one book that you need to pick up this summer, it’s this! If you love Alice Clayton and Christina Lauren, you will love this new series by Sarina Bowen! It’s got hot farmers!
I’m so obsessed with Griff and Audrey’s story, I was so sad when it ended! There connection is so sizzilingly hot, you might need a fan (seriously, it is H O T).
I think many of the initial problems between Audrey and Griff is the fact that they just won’t sit down and actually talk with one another. It’s just a bunch of little misunderstandings.
I adored Griff’s character. He’s this gruff, sweet farmer who gave up his dream to be in the NFL to run his family farm in Vermont after his father unexpectedly passed away. When he sees Audrey–an old college flame–in a ditch by the side of the road near his farm, he’s a bit of a dick, I’ll be honest. But after he gets over the initial surprise, their sexual tension just sort of explodes. I think this book might be Bowen’s sexiest book yet, to be honest.
One of the things I love about Bowen’s writing is how she writes characters. She does it SOOOOO well!! I loved Jude (who will be in book 2, Steadfast) and Zachariah, a couple of side characters that work on Griff’s farm. Jude has just been released from prison and rehab, after vehicular manslaughter and possession of weed. He starts working at Griff’s farm as a sort of halfway house, and I’m so happy that Jude is getting his own book!
What I listened to while reading:
I love Sarina Bowen’s writing, and I felt this book lived up to my expectations.
