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.

    Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen What a great start to a new series! Bittersweet is set in Vermont and it sounds absolutely beautiful and picturesque. It's a second-chance romance between bearded, grumpy, beastly, sexylicious farmer, Griff and smart-assy, sweet, bubbly, slightly insecure chef-who-isn't-employed-to-cook Audrey. Audrey employers have tasked her to source and build connection with farmers to supply their restaurants and that's how the two meet again - when her car breaks down on Grumpy's, I mean Griff's, farm. The attraction between these two characters was palpable and watching their relationship develop was exciting. It wasn't all rainbows and unicorns; the characters had a complexity to them that I quite liked. Each had their issues and/or complications that they had to face and deal with. I adored the whole Shipley clan and other secondary characters and I'm very eager for the subsequent books in this series. I truly enjoyed this book and I feel that Bowen painted a great picture with her words. I was disappointed to finish the book and as much as I avoid teasers and snippets, I couldn't help but read the first chapter of Steadfast. Can't wait! Great story, great writing. Definitely recommend. *Reviewed by Melinda for Jo&IsaLoveBooks Blog

    I adored this book.!!!I read it on a day that I was in a total book funk and it ripped me back out. Loved it. So different from the other Sarina Bowen books I have read but still awesome. The characters are beautifully written, the setting is spectacular and the chemistry between the leads is off the charts. Loved the dual POV as I enjoy getting the guy's take on things. Felt like it was a real love story and really enjoyed the secondary characters and look forward to hearing their stories also. Highly recommend this book
