I knew I couldn’t fix him. I could only love him. But I should’ve known better than to think that was enough.

Genre: New Adult, College Romance
Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
First, let me start off by saying that I love how Ella Fields tackled adolescent mental health issues in this book. Many tend to stay away from these issues within their novel either because they don't know if readers will connect with the characters or simply because they don't know enough about said issues. That's fine of course, authors should write what they know and what they are comfortable with. Ella Fields on the other hand DOES tackle these issues within Bittersweet Always and I think she does an amazing job with it. Not only did I connect with EACH character, but I felt compassion and riveted because of it. Bravo!
For those who haven't had the pleasure of reading book 1 in this series (https://amzn.to/2KES2M4) don't fret! Each of the books can technically stand alone. The characters from the previous book ARE secondary characters to this one, but they don't play a big enough role to make this one unreadable on it's own. Of course, I recommend book 1, but you can read in any order.
This is a new adult, college romance novel. It's an emotional love story between two individuals who are clearly meant to be together yet, something begins to slowly get in their way of an HEA. Unfortunately, this thing is a mental health issue, on that has the capacity to do a lot of damage to both their relationship and their individual lives. Readers will go on this journey with Pippa and Toby as they struggle not only with young love, but nearly debilitating issues that cause a heap of troubles and feelings that can stand in their way.
For those who love new adult, college romances, this is a must read book/series. You get the feel of the college experience, the feel of young love, and a whole lot of sexiness in between! There are emotional parts of course but they don't take up the entire story. I very much recommend it!

While these books are interconnected, they can easily stand alone.
