[Release Blitz + Review] Bittersweet by Jessica Prince

TITLE: Bittersweet
AUTHOR: Jessica Prince
SERIES: Redemption
ROMANCE: Contemporary, Small Town, Second Chance, Single Parent

I loved Jensen Rose with everything I had; then he stomped my heart to dust. Now I hate him, so why is it that I can't get the sexy, infuriating father of my child out of my head?
She thought he was just a cocky, spoiled rich kid. She had it so very wrong.

Shane Hendrix had a hundred-foot reinforced steel wall around her heart to keep people out, so when she first laid eyes on Jensen Rose, she wanted nothing to do with him. But what started as disdain quickly grew into something so much more. He went from being the boy she hated to the man she loved with all her heart. Then he left without so much as a goodbye, leaving her shattered.

Jensen Rose didn’t have much good in his life. That was until he stumbled on a ray of light standing in the middle of his bedroom. He had to have her, and once he did, he loved her with every single piece of himself. But when his past threatened to rip them apart, he did the only thing he could think to protect her. He walked away.

When he returned to Redemption, Tennessee, it was with every intention of winning back the love of his life. But she’s not giving in without a fight.

And this is a battle he intends to win.

“Sure you’ve noticed already, but it looks like big brother wants to rip your organs out through a hole he’s plannin’ to punch in your chest.” 
I turned to look over my shoulder toward the section I knew Shane’s family would be sitting in, along with their other friends. They never sat anywhere else but at the pool tables whenever they came in. And sure enough, Stone Hendrix was looking at me exactly how Gage had described.
The dude had about two inches on me and a couple pounds worth of muscle. Every inch of his beefy arms was covered in colorful ink in intricate designs, only making him look even more menacing than he already did. 
I’d only met the man twice back when Shane and I were together, but it had been enough for the dude to scare the absolute piss out of me. Now, not so much. I hadn’t been in a fight in years, but that didn’t mean I’d gotten rusty. If anything, with the skills I’d picked up during my time in the service, I was even better at it than I had been back then. It was just that I had my anger issues in check now.
I looked to his left and spotted Scooter sitting next to him—only slightly smaller but no less threatening—looking at me with the same scowl. Instead of turning away, I jerked my chin up, letting them know I wasn’t going to be intimidated into leaving. They knew why I was here. Hell, everyone in Redemption knew. I was here to get my family back, and I wasn’t going to let anyone get in the way of that.


5 Stars from Renee!

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, secrets, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first:
Bad Alibi (Redemption Book 1)
Crazy Beautiful (Redemption #2)

This is Shane and Jensen’s story. Shane had a wall around her heart, but Jensen broke it down. They he shattered it. He loved her but when his past came back, he had to walk away to save her. Now he’s back and determined to win her over again. But she is determined to never let him back into her heart. Can she resist him, or will he pull out all the stops in order to prove that he never once stopped loving her he just needed to protect her so she didn’t suffer the pain he did?

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book.


5 Stars from Brianna!

Jessica Prince got me a few years back as a fan and damn y'all, I swear each book is better than the last. Huge, huge fan of her writing now and I'm first in line for her newest releases. I have a few top favorites she has written and Jessica loves a good second chance in her small town romances- but y'all, this one was special in ALL THE MOMENTS it had. Shane and Jensen were just.... special in every single way.

Bittersweet is the third standalone in  Redemption series and you better be ready to hold on to your heart and panties in this romance because HOLY ALL THE FEELS! This book was breathtaking and explosive-  angsty, intense, emotional, beautiful, complicated, steamy, unputdownable, unforgettable, and packed with so much heart.. so much heat.. so much angst.. so many feels.. all that edge of your seat, fast page flipping tension. GAH!

This book and this couple (+ that wayyyyy cute extra!) was everything I needed in the exact moment I read it. Seriously, I already want to dive back in to their world and experience it all over again.

Jessica is known for being the queen of small towns, second chances, and the BEST alpha males and she is always a top recommendation to others. Seriously, I hope she never ever stops writing because her words are like a balm to my soul and she's an addiction I never want to kick.

I can't recommend this book enough.

Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.

In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.

Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.
