BLOG TOUR: Bittersweet Love by J.L.Beck


Book Title: Bittersweet Love
Author: J.L.Beck


The anticipated conclusion to Jenna and Rex’s story is now here.
Bittersweet Love is the second book in the series, it is recommended that you read book one in the series first, before reading this that way you can get a better understanding of the story.
Betrayal. That’s what Jenna Haines felt when she discovered that her relationship with Rex Winchester was anything but real.
With a broken heart, and a deep sadness running through her veins she picked up the pieces and forced herself to move on. After all, what better place to start fresh than at University of California, Berkeley?
That is until the day she finds out Rex got accepted to Berkeley too, and that he will be following her off to college. To add salt to the wounds, it seems as if he will do anything to win her back. With Rex, on the prowl and her heart being the prey can she resist his advances towards her?
Even more so can she move on from the vengeful things he once did and fall into a deep bittersweet love? Or will the hate, lies, and secrets break them beyond repair? Is love really capable of healing all wounds or is everything still just a lie?

My Review
Bittersweet Love is book 2 in the Bittersweet Series. It picks up with Jenna and Mimi in college.
Jenna is learning how to let go of the past, it’s not easily done since the ones that caused her so much heartache is lurking around the same college she attends. Many months have past and she still isn’t quite over Rex, even though she wants to be. When Mimi decides it’s time for some good college fun she makes Jenna tag along. Just so happens they’re not the only ones who decided to go to that club that night.
Rex knows he messed up and wants Jenna to to give him another chance. Jenna is still skeptical about trusting Rex even though he makes her happier than she has been in a while. Even though she is in a good place at the moment with Rex doesn’t mean the drama is completely gone. Ryder seems to have alterior motives for being around Jenna, what those motives are, I’m still not quite sure yet and neither is Jenna.
Corey and Mimi has some major drama happening with this read but with this book ending the way it did I know there is more to come. Corey is trying not to be the biggest asshole on the planet, he is struggling but has made somewhat of an improvement. Mimi is like that friend everyone has, you know the loud, wild one that you can’t help but love.  They both act as if they want each other and hate each other at the same time. I can’t believe I’m going to say this because as much as I dislike Corey for tormenting Jenna in highschool, I hope him and Mimi work their issues out.
The epilogue has me very interested on what’s going to take place next. Even though Ryder kind of acts like a douche, I think he is sexy, there is something going on and I want to know so freaking bad what his deal is. Rex still has me swooning with all his sweetness.  I don’t hate Corey so much after this book, but doesn’t mean I like him either. I have so many questions I want answered. I’m looking forward to devouring Bittersweet Hate.
