Tapped by Liz Crowe

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.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of explicit sex, including scenes of M/M intimacy.

This is the first in a new series and has me HOOKED!

I love reading ménage stories – undoubtedly for the scorchingly hot scenes that three bodies can create, but also because I am fascinated by the dynamics between the trio. The idea of it being only for fun, which is what Austin and Ross have had in the past is one thing, but in a situation where the word love is used by at least two people, then it is much more than just a physical playground. Ms. Crowe does a fabulous job of leading us deep into a relationship between Austin and Evelyn, with the fantasy of Ross, before opening Pandora's box... Incredibly effective and very intense.

I loved the setting in a microbrewery, with its own world of events, sales pitches, and lots of drinking of beer. It is the perfect set-up and gives a really good hook for the whole story to hang on. The family issues are played well too – mixing business, duty and pleasure, and a missing twin.

This is a book which will leave you wanting more answers, and yet allows a degree of hope too. I am hoping that the next installment is not too far behind, because I need to know where this is going!

This story was very up and down with every emotion you could have. There were funny moments, sad moments, screwed up moments, and even some where I was left scratching my head in a “What the heck was that?” manner.

The connection between Austin and Evelyn was strong, whether it was negative or positive. They swung back and forth like a pendulum. It was also a very quick connection – in a manner of instalove. When you involved Ross, it felt strained and stretched in a way that was not very organic.

This was somewhat confusing, a lot frustrating at times, and in the end, I was kind of just left wondering where we were headed. I hope that the brother comes back in the next story, as it was hinted at when Austin's brother shows up.

Amazon best-selling author, mom of three, Realtor, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, and soccer fan, Liz Crowe is a Kentucky native and graduate of the University of Louisville currently living in Ann Arbor. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse.

With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and at times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.

Don’t ever ask her for anything “like a Budweiser” or risk bodily injury.
