A later in life romance about a coffee shop owner and the barista who loathed it.
Must Love Coffee. That was the first requirement coffee shop owner, Finn Allen, insisted upon in his ad for a new barista.
He wasn’t expecting his valedictorian, coffee-hating nemesis, Samantha Whitman, to answer the ad, or for her to look smoking after all these years.
It was too bad she was married because that’s a line Finn, a recovering playboy, wouldn’t cross. Things get muddy, however, when Sam turns to him for comfort during a crisis.
Can Finn keep his emotions in check or will he screw things up yet again?

“An amusing, yet touching story from a male’s point of view! Finn and Sam’s hate to love romance transpires while helping each other mend their hearts.” ~ Josie Bordeaux, Author of Alluring Promises series

“I loved this book. It’s different. The characters felt real. He is not a 20 or 30-something man with abs of steel. She isn’t a model type of woman with sultry moves. Now, don’t get me wrong I do love those characters. What I am saying is Finn and Sam are different. I need and crave different once in awhile so I am glad I read this book.”  Sandra Shipman ~ Two Book Pushers

“You don’t need to love coffee to love Must Love Coffee! I love the tender and honest presentation of his feelings as he rediscovers what is important to him. The transformation of all the characters is both beautiful and believable. I highly recommend reading “Must Love Coffee”, even if you don’t. “-Jeanne McCartney

Sandra's Review

Must Love Coffee is Danielle Bannister’s next standalone. Before I start, I just have to say that I am in love with this cover. It’s so fun. I don’t even like coffee but I had to read this book. It’s definitely different than what I expected.
Finn is a coffee shop owner in his mid-forties who is ready to put his player days behind him. In a small town of one thousand, it proves to be difficult. Everyone knows he is a one and done type of guy. It’s so bad that he has even thought of giving the shop to his sister and starting over somewhere else. Get out of this town and live. Then, she walks in and changes everything. Sam Whitman. A woman he couldn’t stand in college. A self-absorbed know-it-all.
Sam needed this job. Finn could see that but didn’t understand it. She was way too qualified to be a barista but he couldn’t let her go. He needed her and she needed this job. It also didn’t go unnoticed that she looked amazing. The rock on her hand didn’t go unnoticed either. He couldn’t and wouldn’t go there. Employee/Employer, maybe even friends was all this could be. What they both didn’t expect was how much he wanted to protect her and how much she needed to lean on him in a crisis.
Finn and Sam’s relationship is complicated. I can’t explain why. I don’t want to spoil anything. I will say their friendship is good for both of them.
Overall…even if I don’t love coffee, I loved this book. It’s different. The characters felt real. He is not a 20 or 30-something man with abs of steel. She isn’t a model type of woman with sultry moves. Now, don’t get me wrong I do love those characters. What I am saying is Finn and Sam are different. I need and crave different once in awhile so I am glad I read this book.
