Review at Of Pens and Pages

Sometimes life shoves a fistful of something special in your face, Jack. You need to have the balls to snatch the pebble from life's hand, grasshopper..."


I was looking for a quick fun read, and this book delivered. I finished reading this in less than two hours and had quite a laugh throughout.

Jack Robbins couldn't ask for more. He has a booming coffee business, investors who want to turn his shop into a franchise, loyal customers, and a loving pet dog.

An absolutely adorable romance! Our heroine opens a tea shop next door to our hero’s coffee shop. They have a few cute dust ups but when her brother, the jerk, gets involved the dust ups go from cute to street fights.
Lots of fun and almost too cute. A great read to cheer the heart. 😘

I was given a copy of this book to review and it was a superb book. I LOVED it. I would give it more than the 5 stars if I could. Its a great romantic story with a good plot line, chemistry between 2 people and comedy in the mix. A nice clean romance. I couldn't put the book down and read it in half a day. It was good and I have found another new author to love. Sure am looking forward to reading more of his books in the future. Cant wait to find more. :D

Not as funny as I thought it was going to be. And I’m not a fan of “tell” instead of “show”. One bonus star as this is a male author writing chick lit - how often do you get to see that?... - and the book is perfectly clean.

Favorite Quote: “You don’t know if you’re going to be here tomorrow or the day after. Neither do I. Ask her out.” “What if she says no?” “There’s something a thousand times more painful than her telling you no.” “What’s that?” “Regret…”

This book was cutesy. But I felt it lacked a lot of depth. A lot. The potential was there, but the follow through was pretty non-existent. I was pretty disappointed with the romance portion. It was pretty flat and one dimens

Reading this book has been a wonderfully mood-lightening experience. Rich Amooi has captured the essence of a good and honorable man in Jack and made him into a romantic and caring person. As I do believe that there are men of is calibre on this planet (one just has to look real hard sometimes to find them) this story was rather special to me.
In Susie we have an ambitious, clever and hardworking young lady who falls in love, has her dream crushed and her knight in shine armour takes over and sav

Jack Robbins owns his own coffee shop and his cute Chimichanga. Jack practically lives coffee and if his sales keep going up Jack will be a chain store. One day a Tea store opens up next door Jack starts freaking out cause of competition that the store will bring. Until he meets the owner Susie she's beautiful and Jack starts thinking about asking her out. Funny story and little romance added to it! I loved the character Harvey he made me laugh out loud! A must read for all those who love funny, ...more

Everyone has their own opinion but I really can't understand the 5 star reviews. The characters, although owning their own businesses, acted like 12 year old children. Funny at times, especially Harvey the supposed hypochondriac but all in all, a rather insipid read.

Hilarious and Brilliant

This was an uplifting, hilariously motivational, cheesy romantic novel. I don't know how Rich does it, but he has a knack for creating endearing characters. The storyline reminded me of You've got Mail (1998), starring Meg Ryan. Though this was different in its own way: Susie is opening a tea shop in Mountain View, and next door is Jack's Coffee Cafe. As you can expect, there is a lot of competition, and resentment, and things are getting quite heated, quite rapidly....B

This looked like a cute, quick read. It was quick, but I really didn't like the main couple. The author had them in their own heads for a lot of the book, and their thoughts were ....teenager-ish. These two people own their own businesses and the thoughts going through their heads..."does she like me" or "should I call him or let him call me"...wimpy is what came to mind. Yeah, won't be reading this again...I can barely remember it after having read it once.

It read like a predictable, cheesy, hallmark movie. Sometimes that's good enough. It's not an amazing book but it's not terrible. It takes place in Mountain View, CA. That was fun since I'm very familiar with that town, and oddly enough, the audiobook was recorded in Dryden, NY, which is where I lived for 2 years. (I almost want to give it an extra star for those weird coincidences, but I won't.)

THIS WAS LIKE EATING A TWINKIE - I LOVE TWINKIES - BUT NOT ENOUGH SUBSTANCE FOR ME


Jack owns a coffee shop that is so popular, investors want to take him and his business national. Big bucks ahead.
Susie is opening a tea and scone shop right next door to Jack. She and her brother, Kenneth, are excited partners who hope to be a big success.
Susie is cute, Jack is interested. Kenneth belittles Jack every chance he gets. Susie and Jack spar when they are together.
OK, it is just me, I am certain.

A great read between two coffee and tea shops that will have you laughing and scratching your head about these characters in a great way. Jack and Susie don't need to compete but Jack is a stubborn yet funny and caring man. Can these two come together and work things out? A great read.

Coffee, Tea or Me is a quick read that is predictable, yet fun. The title drives me a bit nuts with the lack of Oxford comma (I’m a big fan of the Oxford comma). I recommend this book to anyone wanting an easy mind vacation beach read.

Sweet and Short

Just like the title reads, this story was short and incredibly sweet! Jack and Susie feel approachable. The rest of the story and characters help the book flow to a satisfying conclusion.

Cute and easy read, no major drama (at least none that can't be resolved quickly). I liked both Jack and Susie and their supporting cast, not least of all Kenneth, Harvey and Chimi... :D
A sweet, clean feel-good story. :)

I surprisingly liked this more than I thought. I'm usually not as into contemporary romance, usually because there is sex and I just don't need that in my books. But this book was clean, which was so refreshing!

It was a quick read. And conflict was there, but not too drawn out, I don't think. It wasn't a really dumb, complete misunderstanding either. I liked how the author made it all work out.

I think I'll look into reading more from this author. Which is another surprise because I haven't read

Shelves: never-completed
I found the two leading male characters childish and annoying, while their jealousy of each other caused them to try to out do one another.

It was ridiculous! My choice of adventure and escape are not aligned with this book at all. I found no humor in squabbling. What was the point?

Finally I closed the book and chose a more interesting book to read.

"Very Entertaining, I Loved It"

This is a feel-good story about Susie McKenna who opens a tea shop next to Jack Robbins coffee shop in Mountain View, California. They become quite competitive. Jack has a rescue Chihuahua called Chimichanga, where Susie has an over-protective brother. Things start boiling when they both volunteer to help plan the downtown festival. A fun story to read. It's well written and will definitely put a smile on your face as you read. Enjoy it!

When Suzie opens a brand-new tea shop next to Jack's Coffee Cafe, both of their business partners are uneasy about the competition. But Jack and Suzie get along great - in fact, they start to fall in love. Everyone is preparing for the large community festival, the perfect opportunity to promote Suzie's budding business. But then, Jack makes a fatal mistake. Only by sacrificing the expansion of his own Cafe can there be any hope of saving hers, and possibly their relationship.

I always enjoy Ric
