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?

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. But when a new tea & scones shop opens next door, he finds competition in Suzie McKenna, the pretty owner with an overprotective brother and the most delicious teas and scones Jack has ever tasted.
They didn’t leave the best first impression on each other, and somehow they both caused each other to unleash their competitiveness. If not for the volunteer work to help plan the downtown festival, they would never have found out how much they get along and enjoy each other’s company. 

“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…”

Their antics to one-up each other was quite entertaining to watch, and it was cute when they finally got along and went out. However, there were times when it felt like they were teenagers instead of adult business owners. That’s my only complaint, if you could consider it that. 

This clean romance had funny side characters, cute moments and little to no drama. If you’re looking for a quick read to make you smile or laugh, this book might be for you.
