Susie opens a tea shop next to Jack’s coffee shop and the war begins.

Jack Robbins has a booming coffee business, an eighty-year old customer who can’t keep his clothes on, and a rescue Chihuahua named Chimichanga that likes to kiss on the mouth. Life is good until the new business next door takes a bite out of his sales.

Susie McKenna has the new tea shop everyone is talking about, an over-protective brother, and a stubborn, good-looking neighbor who is trying to steal her customers.

Things really start to percolate when Jack and Susie both volunteer to help plan the downtown festival. They have to work together and soon Jack won't be able to get by without his daily fix of Susie. But can a coffee lover and a tea devotee put their competition aside to get their happily ever after?

My Review

A new day and another new Rich Amooi book and another one I devoured and another one with a predominantly male point of view!

I am loving all the romance books at the moment, I mean I will go back to my darker side soon, but I am loving the HEA and the drama! With this book, one sentence caught me and I was waiting for nearly 80% for the drama to unfold. I just knew what was going to happen, I foretold it but I knew the hero would save the day….even if it was his fault!

This time our main characters are Jack who owns a coffee shop and Susie who has just moved to the area and opened a tea shop with scones! Will these two be mortal enemies or will love win out?!

I am really loving how these early books are from the male point of view and how we see the insecurities they have! I always love the love at first sight scenario and it’s no different here despite being “competitors.” Plus it wouldn’t be a rom-com without your stereotypical protective “hard” guy.

Coffee, Tea or Me is a very cute read. The banter, the first kisses and dates will make you smile and your heart warm, despite knowing something can’t be this good to be true! Plus I want to go to Santa Monica and the pier! I must admit though I am on team Tea! Coffee makes me too hypo and I don’t need anything more!

All of Amooi’s books would be amazing to see on the big screen, a Netflix or Hallmark film. They are perfect for this, you have two endearing people who you champion from the start – think Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks!

Another book I’ve ticked off my list and I am now running out of books! I can’t wait to see what Mr Amooi has in store for me next!

Until next time xxx

What have other readers said?

Me and My Books says:- Rich does such a great job with his stories. This book was great for disappearing into for a couple of hours. It was a light read that made me smirk, especially the antics of Harvey, he is hilarious and such a dear. There is that good balance of will they/ won’t they to the romance side of the story and that is mixed in with tea, coffee and scones…If you are after a lighthearted story that will pop a smile on your face and leave you with an “Aaahhhh” feeling then check this one out. It isn’t a serious or heavy book and this makes it ideal for a cheeky afternoon book. Ideal for readers of rom-com. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would definitely recommend it.

Goodreads reviewer says:- This was just what I needed 🙂 It was light-hearted, funny, and an easy read. Nothing out of this world, but the right amount of humor to bring a smile to my face and I even giggled a few times out loud. Enough romance to get a few “Ah’s” and maybe a butterfly or two. All in all I liked it!

Goodreads reviewer says:- 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.
