Bitter Love by Emily Goodwin


Release Date: April 30, 2022

SYNOPSIS: If there’s one thing I know to be certain in life, it’s to expect the unexpected. I never expected to become a teen mom or have to flee a toxic relationship years later. And I certainly never expected to go head-to-head with Jacob Harris, doctor of veterinary medicine, to prove I’m worthy of running the struggling rescue full of misfit animals I suddenly inherited. Jacob is as smug as he is good looking, and I refuse to let that cocky grin or sharp jawline distract me. I won’t go down without a fight, and this time, it’ll be easy to stand my ground when my opponent is someone I can’t stand–even though my body reacts whenever he’s around. This time I’m not backing down no matter how much he gets under my skin. But the more I push, the more he pulls…until I don’t know what I’m more at a risk of losing: the rescue or my heart.

REVIEW: I have been waiting for another Emily Goodwin contemporary! I absolutely loved her Dawson Family Series, and I’ve been looking forward to more in the Silver Ridge Series. This one was more of a slow burn and a real enemies-to-lovers. Josie and Jacob did not get along for a while, and it was not exactly what I was expecting. If you like these elements, I think you’re going to like this one! It also had a more “women’s fiction” genre vibe, because a lot of the focus is on Josie, her journey as a single mom, and how awesome she is. While this is not the contemporary romance I was expecting, there are some really wonderful things about this story for certain readers!
