This is the second book in J.L. Beck’s Bittersweet series. This books picks up where book one (Bittersweet Revenge) left off so it is a good idea to read Bittersweet Revenge first. The author does do a little backstory in certain parts but it is not a complete retelling of the first book to get everyone up to speed. It is more of a refresher from Bittersweet Revenge for those that have read it. These parts are written so that it flows with the story very well.

We pick up with Jenna and Mimi as roommates in college and know from the end of book one that Rex and Corey are going to the same college but Jenna is doing her best to stay clear of them. She is determined to make a new start where no one knows her or her made up reputation from high school.

In an effort to get Jenna socializing, Mimi makes her go to a party at a club. Jenna doesn’t want to go but being a good friend to Mimi she goes as her wing woman.

When they get to the club, Mimi immediately goes off and splits from Jenna. As Jenna is having a drink by herself, a familiar face slides into the booth next to her. Rex? No, Ryder! Jenna decides the best way to handle this unexpected guest is more alcohol. Especially when she finds out that in addition to Rex and Corey going to the same school, Ryder is as well.

Jenna continues not to fully trust Ryder and the reader wonders even more in this book about his motives. Bittersweet Love continues to follow the conflicts between Jenna and Rex and Ryder; As well as the one between Corey and Mimi.

As the story goes on, the reader aches for Jenna and Rex to give their relationship another chance. When they do, there are others that try to destroy it again.

Overall Rating: 3.75 Rockin’ ★★★☆

High school was a disaster for Jenna Haines. She was betrayed by her ex-boyfriend, who spread vicious rumors about her and broke up with her in front of the entire school. When his cousin approaches her wanting to be her friend she finds herself drawn to him and accepting him at face value. Everything warned her not to be so trusting, but she listened to her heart and he betrayed her. The only friend she had left was her best friend Mimi and they decided to attend college in California at Southern Cali. That would take her far away from all the drama she had endured during high school. Time and distance will hopefully heal the broken pieces of her heart and allow her to move on with her life.

Rex Winchester had known from the first moment that he saw Jenna that she was the one for him. He had never intended to hurt her and when she moved away he was heartbroken. The only choice for him was to follow her to California and attend school where she had decided to. He knows it will not be easy to convince her that he is really sorry and will do anything to regain her trust and love. Rex also knows that his twin brother and cousin will probably get in his way trying to get back on Jenna’s good side.

Can Rex prove to Jenna that they belong together? Will she forgive him and give him another chance? Or will friends and relatives keep them apart? Read this book and get some surprising answers!

Heroine –Jenna Haines: 4 stars

Yet again J.L. Beck has made me laugh and cry as I anxiously rooted for my favorite characters!

As in Bittersweet Revenge (the first book in this series), the characters and storyline drew me in to this book and wouldn't let me go despite the many spelling and grammatical errors I noticed. As a side note, the only complaint I have about this novella is that the author needs a better proofreader. The mistakes are distracting, but the storyline was more important.

I felt like I was continuing life with the characters as I again shared in their sadness, anxiety, happiness, confusion, love, and hopefulness. The main character, Jenna, and her best friend, Mimi, start out this novella by moving to California to attend college. I was hoping for a new beginning for both of them, but I knew that wouldn't be entirely possible because the men who tried to crush Jenna's spirit and broke her heart in high school are attending the same college. Knowing this, I wondered what direction their lives would take. I honestly didn't care what happened to Corey, Jenna's ex boyfriend, because I think he is a deplorable person, but I did care about his cousin, Rex, because I believe he honestly loves Jenna and regrets hurting her.

A focus of this book is Jenna finding herself. She discovers she has more strength, courage, compassion, and determination than she ever could have imagined. Along this journey, she finds it in her to make peace with some aspects of her past and allow herself to trust in love again.

I enjoyed reading this book and seeing how the characters have changed, or not changed, since beginning high school in the previous book. I was glad to see some of them matured!
