In Love on Tap (Brewing Love #1) by Meg Benjamin, Bec Dempsey lost her business when her major backer decided to end their partnership, but she's chosen not to give up on her dreams. Selling the last barrel of her legendary Zoria imperial stout to Wyatt Montgomery may be her one and only chance of re-opening Antero Brewing, but he's a city-slicker and she's already been burned once by a man like Wyatt. However, once she realizes he's nothing like her ex, will she give him a chance?

Ms. Benjamin always manages to entertain me with her books, and I have been charmed by every story that she's penned that I've read, and this first book of her Brewing Love series was no different. Right from the beginning, I was drawn into this story due to what the heroine is going through. Will she be able to make her dreams of getting Antero Brewing back come up and running come true? How will she make it happen when she doesn't have the capital to make it happen? Will she allow someone outside the family or those she trusts to be a partner in the company again?

The dialogue was well-written and I loved both characters back stories. Bec finds it hard to trust after what her ex-boyfriend did, and the fact that Wyatt is from the city puts him in the you're-no-good-because-you're-a-city-slicker category; a man who could possibly gain her trust, betray her and then leave her heartbroken if she considered giving him a chance. However, I liked that the heroine didn't let her past keep her from getting to know Wyatt. Really, the heroine is strong and brave by wanting to try and get Antero Brewing back in business and I liked that she wasn't afraid to use the fact that Wyatt wants her last barrel of Zoria to her advantage. Yet, what I liked most about the heroine was that she was true to her promises and wouldn't let her brother interfere in her dealings with Wyatt.

While Wyatt, he was a fantastic hero. He needs something special to help revitalize and find a way to bring in more customers to the gastropub he owns with a friend, and Bec's barrel of Zoria is the perfect solution. However, I liked that she provided a challenge for the hero with everything she makes him do, because she needs certain things to be able to start making beer again. But what I liked most of all is how Wyatt proved to Bec that not all city-slickers are like her ex. That they're honorable and would do their best not to hurt the woman they're falling in love with.

Overall, this book starts off this series superbly, even though I wanted to slap the heroine's brother for how he treated his sister when it came to her making decisions and believing she was making the wrong one. However, in saying that, he did redeem himself by believing in her in the end and by all that he was willing to do to help her restore Antero Brewing to its former glory, as she's a fine brewer. Furthermore, I enjoyed the chemistry between this couple, which spills over onto the pages in hot sex scenes and illustrate that Bec shouldn't be afraid to give love and happiness another chance, because Wyatt will be there to catch her when she finally falls and prove that he reciprocates her feelings.

And lastly, the way this story ended had me smiling because of Wyatt does for Bec. She shouldn't feel guilty about what happened, especially when it wasn't her fault and I liked that the hero wasn't afraid to use any means necessary to see justice served. I would recommend Love on Tap by Meg Benjamin, if you enjoy books by authors Kelly Jamieson, Erin Nicholas or Sydney Somers.

Wyatt Montgomery knows a barrel of legendary Zoria imperial stout will help his Denver gastropub stay on top. The only problem is the brewery that made it is no longer in business. When Wyatt hears the brewmaster has only one barrel left, he won’t stop until it’s his. He doesn’t consider what this mythical barrel might cost him. And he certainly doesn’t anticipate his reaction to the heart-stoppingly beautiful brewmaster he needs to convince to sell him the beer.

When Wyatt rushes into Bec Dempsey’s small-town cooperative offering to buy the last barrel of her precious Zoria, she’s thrown for a loop. She’s been burned by city-slickers before, and she’ll be damned if she’ll let it happen again. But when things start heating up between them, Bec decides to make Wyatt a counteroffer. One she hopes he won’t refuse.
