Stirring Up Love by: Chandra Blumberg

I’m going to keep this review short and sweet.

I didn’t like this book and that’s because almost all the conflict is based on miscommunication and I absolutely can’t stand that. Especially when the characters are supposed to be adults. If you’re grown enough to run a business, to work in corporate America, if you’re old enough to have the ability to open a culinary school, then you’re old enough to have a conversation.

It’s one thing that I didn’t really bond to the characters which I’m disappointed by. It’s not like the writing is bad.

The characters just didn’t do it for me. And with a road trip, BBQ, enemies to lovers, this should have been everything but I just didn’t like it. And that’s probably stems from the fact that I couldn’t stand the fact they couldn’t act like adults and just communicate.

It’s a two (2) stars from me, and I don’t think I’ll recommend it. I’m really tired of romance’s biggest flaw being miscommunication. I want the character’s actions to be the cause of conflict. Not them not actually talking to the person they’re having sex with.

I received this eARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
