A sweet and savory debut novel about a feisty female brewer who works on the launch of her own line of beer while trying to navigate the distracting chemistry with a local gastropub owner. Piper wants her craft beer to stand on its own merits, cause she knows that the tight-knit male-dominated brewer community will assume the worst if she starts anything with one of her vendors.
After working long hours brewing in her garage, Piper is determined to prove herself and to ignore the chemistry she has with Blake Reed, owner of Minnesota's newest gastropub who is going to stock four of her brews. She wants her craft beer to stand on its own merits and knows that the tight-knit male-dominated brewer community will assume the worst if she starts anything with one of her vendors. No way she'll risk everything she's invested in her budding business on a guy who might not stick no matter how charmingly handsome and funny he is, right?
And Blake has a conflict of his own his haughty family wants him to ditch the gastropub and support his father's political campaign. Well, that, and the fact that he knows Piper's snark and sass is the perfect blend of crisp and refreshing for him. So Blake and Piper make a pact: she'll go out with him if, and only if, two additional pubs start carrying her beer. Sticking to the pact proves harder than either of them expected especially since the attraction is off the charts between quirky, independent Piper and smart, charming Blake.
Then Piper gets a once-in-a-lifetime offer that could launch her company to the next level and take her away from Blake. Are she and Blake just drunk in love, or do they have something real that's worth risking her dreams for?
