Bittersweet (True North #1) by Sarina Bowen

The new series is set in Vermont. True North is populated by the tough, outdoorsy mountain men that populate the Green Mountain State. They raise cows and they grow apples. They chop a lot of wood, especially when they need to blow off steam. (Beards are optional but encouraged.)

If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the orchard.

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 harvest 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 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.

This is a series worth reading, and I only finished book 1. I hope all is as I imagine with the rest of the characters we have come to know.

Griffin is a farmer who needs to sort out his problems and support his family after his father passed away. Before, he was just a college boy who wanted a girl, but now he has other. And one of them is said girl, that he finds right in a ditch outside his farm house.

Audrey is a chef and she’s good at it. It might be the only thing she’s actually good at but being broke and employed to a company that doesn’t give two cents on her, will unfortunately keep her out of the kitchen.

This is how she found herself, again, face to face with Griff.

What started when they were college students will become more as soon as they give in to their attraction.

I am excited to hear the rest of the family and their significant other. Oh, and Jude is mine!!! I can’t wait to read his story.
