This story had a completely different “love” story that just kept drawing me in. Not many books involve a family that is tight knit. It’s a bit of a sexy story of getting a chance with the one who got away. Basing it on a farm which operates mainly as a cider house is very up to date. Also the use of “organically” grown product makes it PC.

I was very surprised in regards to how many directions this book took you on the path to love, it wasn't just centered specifically on the couple, but yet had everything to do with them and also centered around a strong family Bonds as well as second chances from multiple directions, which you are going to love following each of the stories in one book. I'm keeping this book so I can come back at a later date and read it again ?

Not certain what I was expecting when I started the book , but I was interested in the story and the charactors in no time. Everyone was their own person and fit so well together. Do wish it would have ended with more closure but it wasn't a cliffhanger by any means. J

I really enjoyed this book, it was a great read. The characters were well rounded, and refreshingly real. I laughed in amusement at the lively trists that went back and forth between many of the characters. It makes you want to visit the Shipley Farm. Many trials are addressed that so many could relate to. It gives you hope that things can happen good or bad, and you have a choice as to how you handle it. It also drives home that sticking to who you are can be the best reward in the end.

Well this was surprisingly good and entertaining. My first read by this author and I'm hooked on this series, it was well written with enough angst, humor, sexy times and colorful characters to keep the reader engaged. Griff was gruff but sweet. Definitely a family man and a loyal one too. He cared very deeply for his people and went out his way to provide for his family and employees. Audrey was sort of flighty, she knew what she wanted and went for it with gusto, thing about her character is that everything always went wrong for her, the harder she tried, the more she messed up. The moment she stopped trying to impress the wrong people, her life and job aspirations took a turn for the better. It was a nice refreshing change seeing the male fall head over heels for the female, while said female is totally cool and nonchalant! I hate when authors turn the females into blithering idiots at the sight of a good looking man. That dynamic was not present in this book. Griff was the one constantly worrying about his relationship with Audrey, the one always wanting more, the one just plain in love. It was interesting seeing the tables turned for a change! Made the book that much more enjoyable. Both characters had their flaws but they were very mature about their pesudo relationship and didn't act like children. They tried and made it work, despite obstacles standing in their way, its so much easier to relate to a couple who actually acts mature instead of playing stupid games. SR

Can never go wrong with a Sarina Bowen story, read now. I'm her Ivy and Gravity fan, now True North of course. You'll feel like you've met a character then miss them when they're gone. Sarina Bowen introduces all these fully developed characters otherwise you wouldn't want to know more. No cliffhangers, you just want to know more, root for them more and get a glimpse of someone you miss. And she has this way of recounting moments without over doing it. That right amount of plot and descriptors that makes you lean in and also allows your own experiences to color a moment. I've never been to Vermont, or been to a hockey game or done an extreme sport but after you read one of her books you feel like you've experienced it or want to go or try it.

Bittersweet by Sarina Bowen is a fantastic contemporary romance. Ms. Bowen has given us a well-written book loaded with phenomenal characters. This is written in first person, alternating point of view format, which I normally hate, but the author made it work in this story. Griffen gave up a chance at a pro football career to return home to run the family orchard when his father died unexpectedly. Audrey is an underpaid, overworked new chef. Their story is full of drama, humor and smokin' hot sex. I totally love the humor in this book. I enjoyed reading this book and would happily read more from Sarina Bowen in the future. Bittersweet is book 1 of the True North Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
