Farmers make the earth move.
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 hard cider 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 cider-making 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.
"Smart, funny and super sexy, Bittersweet is full of the kind of writing that makes Sarina Bowen one of my favorite author crushes." Author Sarah Mayberry.

User reviews about this book
Not much of a climax but steadily good
Unless a book is really bad I will finish. Decently writtten book but could use another proofreading. I will probably not consider reading more in series. I don’t usually read first person books and this one head hops between him and her by chapter which can be confusing. Plus I could have used a few less f bombs.

Loved the story. It was well written with all the different aspects of the story. Left me wanting more.
Read in a day!!!

Such great character development! Their relationship is so steamy & so playful, I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
What a delight!
Loved this one from start to finish! Delightfully funny, refreshingly honest, & the hot scenes were HOT! It wasn’t overdone. Also appreciated the fact that Audrey & Griff didn’t do that annoyingly frustrating cat & mouse game that’s the backbone for so many writers in a feeble attempt to create a worthy plot line. This one is a great read that’ll have you laughing & reflecting from one scene to the next.

I thought this was a good book. There was a good storyline that really showed the effort put into writing it and the talent of the author.
I loved Griff- definitely a swoon-worthy male lead. Audrey was... ehh. I thought the author did a good job writing her, she just wasn’t one of my favorite characters I’ve ever read. She was easily the most fictional aspect of this book whereas the rest was pretty relatable.
Most of the other reviews rave about the Shipley family and I don’t get such high praise. Don’t get me wrong- they were cute and I liked them enough, but for so many people to write about how much they loved them? I don’t get it. The family was cute, obviously loved one another, and each like-able characters on their own, but that’s about it.
Overall, this book was entertaining and had a good mix of insight, humor, steaminess, and sweetness. I would recommend it!
Couldn’t put it down

I read this book cover to cover and if you like love stories with the right amount of humor along with the right dashes of reality (that some romances just skip over) then this is the book for you.
It was truly a pleasure to read.
Loved this story and hard cider farmer is hot to boot. I’d move to Vermont if I knew there were men like this there! Lol
Great story. Hard to put down.
By Taco. (:
Such a good book! The characters were endearing and the I found myself continuously rooting for them. The ending was a little abrupt and didn’t give enough closure though.
