Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Must Love Coffee was all kinds of cute! I absolutely loved everything about Gwen and Leo, especially their not-so-meet-cute, when he accuses her of being a horrible teacher. And she throws it right back at him for not being a present parent. Leo is grumpy and arrogant… and the last person Gwen was expecting to be a parent calling for a playdate for her daughter.
These two are a perfect pair. They are both carrying around major baggage as a result of their first marriages, but they complement each other so well. Leo wants to give Gwen the world, and really sets out to prove to her that he’s nothing like her ex. For Leo, Gwen is a ray of sunshine breaking through the darkness of his life since his divorce. Their kids are adorable, and it’s an instant, Harry Potter-loving family.
This book is a standalone in a series set in a Manhattan apartment building. Each book is written by a different author, so while we get to meet some of the other residents of 425 Madison, we don’t really know anything about any of them other than Gwen’s good friend, Mallory. (Who is the subject of the next installment.)
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
