Tapped by Liz Crowe – REVIEW

A hot hookup in a cold beer cooler changes everything!


The Brewing Passion Series #1
Liz Crowe
Releasing Feb 14th, 2017
Totally Bound
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 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 somehow repair the
tattered shreds of their relationship.

Gina’s Review
The blurb of Tapped by Liz Crowe grabbed my attention. Our area of Florida has blown up with craft breweries all over the place and I found the premise intriguing. Evelyn is a strong-willed woman working in a man’s world of selling beer to local establishments to sell. Even though she appears to know quite a bit about beer and its brewing process, more often than not, she needs to use her womanly charms to get the bar owners to take her seriously.
That is until Austin starts tagging along. Austin is a well known brewery owner, who has denied his family heritage to carry out his dream of brewing beer. He and Evelyn collide in every way possible – personality and physically. They can’t deny their attraction to each other, but Evelyn doesn’t feel she fits in his world – so it’s one obstacle after the next.
I enjoyed the story. There were really great parts. Austin was dreamy. Ross added an extra sexy element to the story. And the sex scenes were steamy.  I did find that Evelyn’s character wasn’t very consistent and that sort of distracted me from the story because I’d be asking myself – “Huh?” It just seemed some of her actions and words were out of character – more childlike than that of an adult. It did make her come off a bit immature.
I give Tapped 3 silver buckles.

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.
Her early
forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction subgenre,
“Romance: Worth the Risk,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers
interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”).
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.
