I read Shewanda Pugh’s LOVE, EDY for review in August of this year, a gift from the author for winning a contest on her Facebook page. Young adult romance is not on my short list of favorites but the book looked good so I read it. The pleasant surprise I felt at the time was mind boggling.
So needless to say, I jumped at the chance when offered an ARC copy of the sequel, BITTERSWEET.

I'm so happy that Edy and Hassan have returned and the way this book ended hopefully another book is in the making. If not the author better get cracking. For the cons the beginning was a bit choppy, the flow was off I had to go back to reread some areas. The grammar needs work as well, nothing a decent editor can't fix.

For the pros loved how Edy's character grew wasn't sure if it was because she and Hassan took their relationship to the next level. She reminded me of a typical teenager in love

I'm really into the whole romance genre, but didn't really think I would be interested in this book. After reading "Love Edy" I was instantly hooked. I like the development of the characters and the storyline was a bit unexpected for a modern day romance. My only regret, is choosing to read a series that wasn't yet complete. Come on, Shewanda let's get part 3 out there!

No, just no.

check out the bottom bit of my review of the first book, Love Edy to understand why.

Better than first

I liked that Hassan had a voice in this book and I am looking forward to the next book. I can't wait to see what direction the story goes in with Wyatt and Malia. Can't wait for part 3 as long as Hassan and Edy stay together.

I've enjoyed reading their story. I know there has to be more. Can't wait for the next chapter in their lives...

Just as good.

This book was just as good as part 1. I loved the love that the two couple has for each other.

2.50 stars. It is my opinion, that the 280 pages of Bittersweet was nothing more than a time jump. This could have been accomplished with an epilogue at the end of Love Edy and a prologue at the beginning of Wrecked. The first 15% of the book is Edy and Hassan being swished off to Kentucky to Edy's grandparents she did not know. Most of the book is filler: telling how Wyatt goes from rags to riches and how the protagonist go from freshmen to seniors. The meat of the book was told in about 3 chap ...more

I enjoyed this book, however I feel the series is being drawn out. Good story line of young adult love with the potential to with stand adversity. The epilogue seems rushed and not a good lead for the third and hopefully happy ending for Edy and Hassan. Maybe Ms Pugh will develop the characters; the friends after college.

I enjoyed this book #2, however I feel the series is the series is being drawn out. Good story line of young adult love that has the potential to with stand family and cultural

At the end of book #1 Love Edy, readers were left with the tragic accident and we held our breath to see what would become of Hassan and Edy. Unfortunately, life for the pair of lovebirds is about to become even more difficult as their shared kissing experience wasn't very well hidden and Hassan's mother saw the whole thing unfold. This isn't good since of course Hassan's mum is still stuck in the old ways, where traditions matter and second of all - Hassan has already been set up for an arrang ...more

Shewanda Pugh has completely shifted the paradigm with Bittersweet; entirely enthralling. The amount of angst, frustration and overwhelming teenage hormones had me yanking at my hair! I loved the dynamics between Edy and Hassan; and to think they're teenagers!!!

I felt like I was able to connect with the growth of the characters between this book and the last. They were more mature, but at the same time they had that “I’m still a child” vibe. I loved the fact that even when it seemed like Edy and

I'm really trying to figure out the purpose of this book. After reading the first book in this series, Love Edy, I was expecting a much more dramatic book because now Hassan's mom knows their together and she's going to tell everyone, split them apart, whatever. I figured something crazy would happen to try to get them apart, but nothing happened. Absolutely nothing. The only thing that really happened in this book is the passage of time. By the end of the book Edy is 17 almost 18 and Hassan is ...more

This was like dark chocolate

First I would like to say that I enjoyed this story so very much.I have been on pins waiting and finally,but I have some points that need to be expressed.1.From the beginning of this story you get a frantic pace.I mean this traumatic episode happens and I feel it's handled to lightly.2.The two main characters escape for awhile what was this about?3.Also they make love really,know kinda of scenes,not that I support under age sex but really.4.The pace of this story is s

I thoroughly enjoy Shewanda Pugh's work. I love her complex, melodic descriptions of the characters' relationships. She is consistent with the direct and frank dialogue between real people with so much left unsaid.

Still, I felt a little let down with this one....that special something ever present in Love Edy was blatantly absent in this sequel. To avoid any spoiler alerts, I'll just say that the title is utterly befitting. Without any blatantly obvious cliffhangers, the ending manages to feel s

My whole attitude towards Edy has changed. She no longer has the questions that she once had so diminishes the passions that she's always held...or so you think. In the original story she was was a child bravely facing a new world receiving our sympathy. Now she casts it back to us as she grows into an impersonal woman of the world--a character we no longer know.

I will likely get the third in this series; but I don't see how this could end well. Crimson Footsteps 3 put me through the ringer and

This book was incredible with a moving story line and well-developed characters. There is so much that rings true about the decisions, doubts, insecurities, and obstacles a couple like Edy and Hassan would have to face that the story is enjoyable and intriguing. I love the way it examines relationships and personal motivations at a variety of levels. The excerpt for book 3 has me on the edge of my seat with its promise of even harder choices to be made that will undoubtedly impact Hassan and Edy ...more

Once again you have made me smile Shewanda. I truly enjoy reading your work and I was Pleasantly satisfied with the follow-up to "Love Edy". Rani totally disappointed me as well as Rebecca on her actions, but the biggest surprise was Ali's justification as to why Edy and Hassan could not be together. I'm friending to read the next book in this series. Hopefully the wait will not be a long one. Great job of writing once again Shewanda!

Loved it

I really enjoyed this book. The characters and plot were well written. I really found myself drawn into it and couldn't put it down until I finished. I felt for Edy as she struggled trying to figure out how Hassan and she could be together but it seems like everyone is against them. I really look forward to reading more from this amazing author.

This series is so tantalizing, so entangled with ups and downs that make your crave for more.
I can't wait to read the next book.

Shewanda Pugh's a tomboy who's been writing romance since an inappropriate age. While she's been shortlisted for a few awards and snagged a bestsellers list or two, there's nothing she enjoys more than hearing from her readers.

In another life, she earned a BA from Alabama A&M University and an MA in Writing from Nova Southeastern University. Though a hardcore native of Boston, MA, she now liv
