But Lawrence wants more than I’m able to give. And it’s a damn shame because there’s no one on earth I want more than her.
An epic love.
A miserable ending.
Unless it’s not.
This is the first book in the Lovibond series which features 3 sexy men, all of whom craft delicious beer …. All in all, I found this book to be very sweet, very sexy, and a VERY good time! I loved meeting Lucas and Lawrence and found their relationship to be extremely sweet. This is especially true considering Lucas’s background and a lot of pain he had to endure when he was only a teenager. But Lawrence (aka Wren) has had her share of trouble too. She comes from a past where the people who are supposed to love and protect her the most ended up hurting her the worse. How can these two tarnished souls find love when all they knew about “love” was pain?
Lucas and Wren meet in unconventional circumstances. Wren’s brother is actually a friend and partner of Lucas, and when he gets into trouble he needed Lucas’s help in keeping his problems on the DL. So Lucas helps Stout (Wren’s brother) by texting Wren and pretending he is her brother. Only problem? He doesn’t expect to be so taken with Wren and her bohemian ways….
The two hit if off pretty early in the book and show a very strong attraction to one another from the get go. The problem with this is that Stout wants Lucas to stay away from his sister because of his tendencies to use and leave women behind. But Lucas and Wren can’t stay away from one another so they have a relationship in the sly…
Of course problems ensue here on out and Lucas’s past pain haunts their current relationship. While we readers can certainly sympathize with him there are some points where we want to slap him for not seeing true love when it is right in front of him!
Anyway, this is a really great story and the first book I have ever read by Georgia Cates. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series (which releases in may) and I certainly recommend it to fellow book lovers. I mean, what is better than a hot and sexy bearded man, BEER, and forever love??
