Book 2 in the Brewing Passions series. This book is very much a sequel to book 1, Tapped. For that reason, I highly recommend you read the brilliant Tapped before starting this one as it will give you lots of background on the characters.
Ross Hoffman no longer wants to be a third wheel. Having been introduced as the third in his best friends Austin Fitzgerald’s relationship with Evelyn, it is now becoming more difficult to share. It’s hard but he knows he needs to walk away, even if his heart is fighting it. So doing what he does best, he flees and throws himself back into his first love of beer brewing away from the only person he has ever loved. But when his best friend calls, he has to return. Little does he know that this may lead him to a new love along the way.
Elisa Nagel is the new assistant brewer for the Fitzgerald’s. She is everything that Ross doesn’t usually like but is unable to stay away. Despite her spirited love of life, it is clear that life has broken her and that she hides many secrets. Can Ross mend her? And in doing so can he mend himself and find a love he never expected?
Liz Crowe has created a great sequel to Tapped. This book is very different and certainly covers much darker subject matters, but as you expect from this author, it is also full of humour, steam and real life situations.
I really loved Ross in this book, even though at times I could have punched him. We get to see a lot more of him and he is much deeper and is worth so much more than being a couples third, that’s for sure. Elisa, well she was certainly a colourful character in more ways than one. She hides her pain behind humour and sass and doesn’t trust easily. I liked her for Ross. He needed to have someone completely different to Evelyn and someone them that only wants him; he gets that with Elise.
So another great story from an author that always puts her unique twists on romance. Always well thought out storylines and characters with lots of depth to both. I now look forward to what may come in the future with secondary characters, she has certainly laid the foundations for stories to come.
If you are looking for something a little different, that embodies the term Real-life Romance. This series, indeed this author is a must read!
