This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
One hot entrepreneur plus a driven saleswoman and sultry brewer: simmered in the craft beer world for a unique, sexy reading experience!
When wealthy brewery owner Austin Fitzgerald meets sexy saleswoman Evelyn Benedict, angry sparks fly. They seem destined to clash, until a hot hookup in a cold beer cooler changes everything.
For Austin, it’s a life-altering moment that sets him on a path away from his birthright, while Evelyn must face her fears about committing to a man considered the playboy of the micro-brewing world.
The power of their preconceived notions nearly tears them apart—until they meet up with brewmaster Ross, who opens their eyes to a deeper, more erotic connection.
But three strong personalities don’t always make for the best emotional mix and when a simple misunderstanding causes chaos, it’s up to Ross to somehow repair the tattered shreds of their relationship.
Although the story kept me turning the page, towards the last three chapters, I was bored to death. The ending was the worst. I was like is this a cliffhanger.
WOW!!! A bit different then other books by this author but LOVED it just as I have all the others. I am definitely an Austin fan and found myself cheering for him all the way through!!! I can't wait for the next book!!!
Three’s company indeed
Who knew that passion and intrigue - and KINK - existed in the beer brewing world!
Evelyn is a young woman not just from the wrong side of the tracks, she's someone for whom the tracks sat empty and desolate. But she's tenacious and determined, and now she works as a brewery saleswoman. When she meets Austin, a man for whom those tracks glistened like gold, she takes an immediate dislike to him, believing him spoiled and entitled. Austin, though. Austin is wildly attracted to her.
As Austin and Evelyn get to know each other, you learn that Austin has a thing for sex, particularly sex involving a woman he can share with his BFF Ross. He likes Evelyn. He cares deeply for her and he wants to rock that headboard with her, but he also wants to share her with Ross.
Evelyn, meanwhile, has a tendency to take a runner. When she gets scared or when she listens to her fears instead of her heart, she puts on her track shoes and RUNS. I wanted Austin to get as fed up with her as I did. I wanted him to tell her to just run and stay running. But he's a man in love.
Wither Ross, though? Well, the cover might give you a clue.
Liz Crowe packs this book with a lot of sexy times, and oh, does she deliver the quiver. You don't just get sex between Austin and Evelyn, you get sex with Austin, Ross, other women - it's all just delicious fun. The weakness, though, is Evelyn. She is not compelling enough to justify the way Austin and Ross react to her. She comes across like a petulant child, the very spoiled and entitled that she accuses Austin of being. I kept thinking that they surely could find someone ... better.
This is the first in a series, and I have no idea where Liz Crowe is going to take this tale. Will she use some of the ancillary characters we meet, or will she delve deeper into the relationship that ends the book?
One thing is for certain: in the Tapped world, good things come in threes.
