Love Bitters (AntiLove Bookclub) by [Brandy Slaven]

Learning how to live alone and deal is the hard part. Thankfully with the help of some like-minded women and their appropriately named bookclub, Imma might just make it through the next nine months and maybe even more. Will she be able to stand on her own two feet when the past comes calling and decisions catch up to her? Find out in this first installment of the AntiLove Bookclub.

All eight AntiLove book club novels can be read as standalones. This installment is a WhyChoose, second chance romance with unplanned pregnancy and M/M.


Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

Oh Imma!! Oh hot boyfriends!!  LOL  If you haven’t read the novella “ Loves Little Surprises” then this is a great story for you!!!  For people like Me who met Imma and her 5 sexy as hell mens…this book was what happened IN BETWEEN the novella.

Ok long of the short of it, Imma (in the novella) went on vacation and shacked up with these guys when the house was double booked.  The guys and Imma formed an instant bond of love and belonging.  The story picks up when Imma realizes this might not work annnnd now she is knocked up.


  1. Will the guys be ok with it?
  2. Who is the baby daddy?
  3. Will there be an issue with one being the baby daddy and the others not being the baby daddy?

So many questions cause our lonely girl to breaks and ruuuuuuns.  She cuts the guys out of her life and tries to rebuild.  She gets a job and moves into her own place while the guys are starting to fracture and fall apart without their girl.

When one of the guys plots with another to bring her home, everything esems better buuuuut drama ensues.  Can they make it work?  Can they handle her pregnancy?  Can they figure out a family?

This book was a great bit of “More” for me since I loved the novella but begged for a longer story.

Now I gotta tell ya, Imma’s friends are HILARIOUS and I and I am dying for their books.  Those ladies are Bat Shit Crazy in the best kinda friend way.

But my favorite part was the cameo of Kendall and her guys….sigh….a reread might be in order!!!

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

I loved this anti-love book club concept really get a bunch of ladies together and talk about how unrealistic the books are compared to real life.  Let me tell you these ladies are not love experts by any means. They are a melting pot of personalities.

First up is Imma who lost her sister and is dealing with her Mom and Dad being over critical of her.  She still lives at home and doesn’t have a job. She finds out that she is pregnant but not sure who the dad is because of a fling with 5 guys she met when a vacation took a minor detour.  Imma decides she needs to figure things out on her own.  She is afraid of what the guys will say and not knowing who the dad is she decides to ghost them.

All the guys are miserable that Im has left them high and dry with no word on why. That is until Wes finds her and confronts her. This was such a great homecoming for the guys and Im.  I really would like to know more about all Imma’s men because I fell in love with everyone of them. I do believe Thatcher is my favorite. He was the one that took the longest to come around when Imma returned.

I loved these guys I do wish I could have seen where their relationship began at the cabin. Let’s not forget the anti-love book club ladies.  I want to be in their book club and I cannot wait to learn about all of them.  I’m telling you these ladies have so much they are hiding from one another.  I liked the start of this series and cannot wait for more.

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her creating worlds with her words, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state park.
