~Review: Bittersweet Love (Bittersweet #2) by J.L. Beck~

This book is for mature readers only 18+ due to language, sexual content, alcohol use, and adult themes that may not be suitable for all readers. 

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? 

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!
