Series: Brewing Passions #1
A hot hook-up in a cold beer cooler changes everything…
When wealthy brewery owner Austin Fitzgerald meets sexy saleswoman Evelyn Benedict, angry sparks fly. They seem destined to clash, until a hot hook-up 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 preconceived notions nearly tears them apart—until they meet up with brew master Ross, who opens their eyes to a deeper, even 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 repair the tattered shreds of their relationship.

Book 1 in the new Brewing Passions series.
Everlyn Benedict is at the top of her game in the world of Craft Beer sales. But when an over privileged, rich, stupidly handsome brewery owner is thrust upon her for a day, she can’t hide her dislike for him or the situation. But Austin Fitzgerald is not at all what she expected and he doesn’t just charm the customers, but also gets under her skin. From opposites sides of the track, Everlyn and Austin find it hard to fight the mutual attraction that burns between them, soon finding themselves together despite the opposition from his overbearing family and an almost fiancé. As they get to know each other they open up that little bit more. But it is Austin’s tales of his time in Germany and his close friend Ross that really get them both thinking of what could be. But fantasies are just that… until Ross appears.
Will Ross be the link that forges the gap between 2 people from very different worlds? Which begs the question… Do the best things in life really come in threes?
I have been really looking forward to this book. It is no secret that am a huge fan of this author; in fact she is my most read author by far. But what I really loved when starting this book was knowing that this was going to be the start to a whole new world that she was creating. And if this book is anything to go by, it’s going to be another corker of a series.
Set in the world of Craft beers and the breweries that make them, Liz has created 2 characters in Everlyn and Austin that couldn’t be more opposite. Everlyn has had a tough and challenging upbringing. As much as she is independent, she is also stubborn and can be flighty to say the least. She is certainly intimidated by the world that Austin comes from and whilst that is understandable, it makes her a bitch at times. But as much as she is frustrating, she is totally balanced out by the understanding and loving Austin. He is trying to escape the shackles of his family and the money and power they have. In Everlyn he finds someone that shares his passions and love of the brewing business, someone that understands him. The only other person that has shared that with him is his friend Ross. So when Ross arrives on the scene, he adds another dimension to their loving, passionate and hot relationship. But this is Liz Crowe and she never navigates smooth waters. She will always show us the pros and cons to relationship rather than the hearts and flowers; and so ensues a relationship that will certainly twist and turn a plenty.
So it does end rather abruptly, but I think that is a masterstroke by Ms. Crowe. It has left me absolutely chomping at the bit for the next story which will delve more into Ross’s life. This in itself leaves me with loads of questions. I hope I don’t have to wait long to have them answered as I am eager to continue this journey, full steam ahead.
So if you want a sizzling hot MFM read that has a great storyline, well developed characters that are both frustrating and endearing, and a story that tackles issues that relate to real-life romance, this is a MUST READ book, indeed author.
