ARC Review ~ Love Brewing, Book Three by Liz Crowe

~ Categories ~ Contemporary Romance

~ Blurb ~ 
A Family Saga with humor, heat and heart--not to mention beer, bourbon and basketball!

Every family has one—the black sheep, the problem child, the prodigal. But Dominic Sean Love could teach all of those guys a lesson or two. Stuck in the middle of a boisterous group of siblings, he’s given “acting out” a new meaning from day one.

While he’s the one son who follows his strict father’s footsteps into the Love family business, he’s also the one who butts heads with him the hardest. Their epic clashes are the stuff of family legend. But they have made peace and work side by side to take Love Brewing to the next level of success.

Until Dominic does the one thing his father can never forgive.

Diana Brantley has been Dominic’s friend, girlfriend and ex-girlfriend so many times she’s lost count. When he shows up at the farm she’s slowly transforming into a wildly popular farm-to-table resource for restaurants all over the U.S. her first impulse is to shoot first and ask questions later. But she doesn’t. And their lives entwine once more, for good, bad and ugly.

~ My Review ~ 5 STARS
Dominic caught my heart in Book One Love Garage where he is introduced as the black sheep bad boy. I knew deep down that there was more to his story.

In Book Two Coach Love, where he spent his time causing all kinds of drama he continued to peak my interest. But it was the ending when Dominic causes a shocking event that affects the whole family that made me sit up and go "Oh no…now what". I couldn’t wait to read this book to see what would happen next.

This book was written in a spectacular manner that hit a home run for me. It took me out of my comfort zone and caused me to open myself to other possibilities of love and what happens if someone you love suffers with manic-depression.

This book is not all nice, cute and pretty. It is a lovely sort of messy in the sense that Dominic continues to make a mess of his life and those around him even as he tries desperately to do the right thing and be normal. It’s about loving your family even when they don’t love you and loving two people at the same time outside of what society thinks is right.

This book made me cry and made me wish desperately for a happy ending for Dominic and Diana. It is a HEA but there are lots of twists and turns to get to the surprising ending.

I give this book 5 STARS. It is not for the faint of heart but it is well worth the read.

An ARC was gifted in exchange for an honest review by DRC Promotions.

Amazon best-selling author, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, mom of three, 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 for Real Life,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”). More recently she is garnering even more fans across genres with her latest novels, which are more character-driven fiction, while remaining very much “real life.”

With 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.
