Sean arrived at the convention expecting to get down to business, including his stated goal of hiring Jen away from Brick Street Brewery. But the beautiful fellow craft beer expert provides more of a distraction than he expected.
The scenes that took place at the festival were hilarious. Who knew that you could have that much none sex but still feel the sexual tension build up between two characters? Some of the best scenes with Jen and Sean were when they were NOT having any kind of sexual anything but the teasing, torture and flirting. Liz does a spectacular job of this with Jen and Sean. Yes, they are not celibate, there are other ways but the build up towards them in bed is spot on with me. Once you finally get there, it’s totally worth it and heartfelt.
The secondary characters flew off the page for me. They only enhanced the story and moved Jen and Sean along to their ending. I really felt for Dylan throughout the whole book. That said the scenes with Dylan and Julie are great. Do not skim over the scene at the brew house when they get home from the festival. Trust me. I couldn’t decide whether to squirm in my seat or laugh out loud. You figure it out for yourself. Liam, Sean brother is important to the story, too. As Sean’s sounding board and business partner, he has a stake in this, too.
The suspense element that Liz wove into the plot was interesting. Do not skip these scenes. They explain what is happening in the background with the saboteur and how it will all play out in the end. Plus, you might learn a thing or two. I sure did.
Otherwise, look for her doing pounds of laundry for her athletic children, watching La Liga on the Fox Soccer Channel, or trying to figure out what to order in for dinner. Liz loves her Foo Fighters Pandora station, and watching reruns of Deadwood, when there isn’t any decent sports on the telly (like during “golf season”). Her beer blog a2beerwench.com is nationally recognized for its insider yet outsider views on the craft beer industry. Her books are set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch and in high powered real estate offices. Don’t ask her for anything “like” a Budweiser or risk painful injury.
