When his world came crashing down around him, Garrett Sharp didn’t run. He stood like the man he is and took his punishment. Eight years later, he finds himself in a new life. It’s not the life he grew up believing he would live, but it’s a life all the same, albeit numb and empty. Well, not entirely.
Every day across the street from his furniture store, Garrett steals moments full of warmth from Emily Garner. As she floats happily through her coffee shop, Emily provides him glimpses into her soul. She’s pure and full of life in a way Garrett’s never experienced. He’s never heard her voice and doesn’t know the color of her eyes. But he knows she lights up like a beacon when she serves coffee to couples on their first dates. Emily can feel the tingles of new love even when she’s not the one experiencing the thrill. And Garrett can feel Emily’s joy from across the street.
When Emily finally enters Garrett’s store for the first time six months after he opens, both their lives change. Garrett must battle the demons of his past to be a man worthy of the woman he’s fallen for from afar. Emily has to move beyond her ex-boyfriend and his betrayals to find trust again. If it were only the past challenging Emily and Garrett, their story would be easy.
Life is never easy.
Mugs of Love begins when Emily finally meets Garrett face to face. They've seen each other around for the past six months, but never really got close to each. Each for their own strange reasons. Now, when things start getting a little weird for Emily, it's time for Garrett to get over his crap and step in when she needs him.
This was a very fast romance! For the most part anyway. I loved Garrett and Emily together! They were awesome. He treats her like a princess, and she's the sunshine in everyone's day. It was great to see these to come together.
I also enjoyed all of the side characters as well. They added in a lot of extra plot and story to it, and me it that much better. It was also nice to see how accepting everyone was of the horrible past some of them had been through.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The only downside was towards the end when the "revenge" was kind of drawn out, that was a bit odd, but it was still very interesting.
