My Cup of Tea: Summer of Love, Volume 1 Review
Author: Kat Lieu
Genre: New Adult, Romantic comedy
Publisher: Nummyz Productions
Date Released: January 18th 2014
Synopsis:It’s another suck-tastic summer for book nerd and baker, Sara Lee-Affen. She’s broke, she’s single, and she’ll probably die a virgin. At her beautiful cousin’s wedding, Sara meets a sexy and delicious stud muffin, Ian Forrests. He’s totally her cup of tea, that is until he laughs at her misery when a bee burrows into her ear. Yes, a dang bee. She’s dying (well not really) as he’s dying from laughter.
What a jerk. A smoking hot, Adonis of a jerk with strikingly green eyes, dark hair, and drool-worthy pecs and eight-pack abs. As luck and fate would have it, Sara keeps bumping into Ian all summer long and ends up working for him as a pastry chef at his failing bakery. Despite her better judgment, Sara falls for the sexy, badass rich boy. She discovers the truth about Ian: he’s a tortured soul who’s still pining for his deceased girlfriend, Sarah. One look at Sarah’s picture and poor Sara knows that she could never compete. She could never be Ian’s cup of tea. Or could she?
Note: This version of My Cup of Tea is completely different from the previously published version.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, Thank you Kat! I really appreciate it! :)When I first read the synopsis for this, I instantly knew that I would like this. This was quite different from the new adult novels that I have read and I really enjoyed it. You could really feel the emotions in the book, especially Ian's grief. This is the kind of book that you will read in one sitting.
I like how Kat made Ian and Sara's p.o.v's because sometimes it just does not work but they way Kat wrote was so good and the characters are very easy to connect with.
I thought Ian's conversation with his aunt Tootie was hilarious but you will have to read My cup of tea to find out why. I found it really interesting how Sara's name was the same as Ian's dead girlfriend, it made you always wonder if his intentions were because he was thinking of Sarah or if they were actually genuine for Sara. This was left in a cliff hanger and I cannot wait to see how Sara and Ian's story continues!! :D
I highly enjoyed this and I recommend it to anyone looking for a light summer read, it' so easy to get into and you really will enjoy it.
