Bec is… difficult at times to like. She has a terrible habit of hiding from her problems and hoping they’ll just go away or resolve themselves if she ignores them for long enough. Yet, despite that, she can also be likable. She’s hard working and clearly passionate about brewing. She’s also still recovering from having her heart dented and her dreams crushed by the indifference of her ex-fiancé and the lack of support from her brother. Her reluctance to deal with Wyatt at first seemed pretty ridiculous, and the setting of three tasks straight out of a fairy tale, but it was also great to see her slowly recovering from her hurts across the course of the book.
Which would have been impossible without Wyatt. Now there’s a man with determination and who isn’t afraid of hard work. I really liked him. Sure, he is a touch pretentious at first and rather wrapped up in the image of things, but he’s also desperate to make his gastropub a success and I loved that he took whatever Bec threw at him and never gave up easily. I have to admit I didn’t always see what he saw in Bec, but then again, with someone as strongly supportive as Wyatt behind her, she could achieve amazing things and together they make a great team.
Away from these two are a few interesting characters, of which Carol was my favorite. I loved that kid. She was seriously impressive. Liam, though, I couldn’t stand. Bec’s brother was just plain awful from start to finish. He’s underhand and greedy, even if he tries to justify it differently to himself. He left such an impression that even though I really like Meg Benjamin’s books, I’ll need some convincing to read about him if he gets his own book. Personally, I’m hoping for more from Bec’s friends after that adorable dinner.
So if you’re looking for a cute contemporary read with a solid hero and a heroine with some work to do, then you might enjoy this. Especially if you don’t mind an unlikely scenario or two thrown into the mix. Interest in brewing is optional, but it probably helps. I’ll definitely be looking out for more from this series – especially if Liam isn’t the star.

You know those authors that you just fall into their books and don’t want to come out and go back to reality? That’s how I have always felt about Meg Benjamin’s work; she has the ability to write small town romances that have you ready to pack your bags and move just so you can be friends with the people who live there. Love On Tap is set in Colorado and is centered on a mostly defunct craft brewery that has one special barrel of beer left and one pub owner willing to do most anything to get it. A sweet, feel good story with a sexy side, Love On Tap gets the Brewing Love Trilogy off to a superb start.
Co-owner of brew-pub, Quaff, Wyatt Montgomery is concerned about declining sales and customers since a new pub opened up down the street and knows he must do something to get more people in the doors. When he gets a lead on a legendary last barrel of beer from a brewer who has gone out of business he knows he’s found something to get people in the doors and create some much needed buzz. What Wyatt doesn’t expect is to find a woman brew master who drives a hard bargain for her last barrel of beer.
Bec Dempsey life was turned upside down when her business partner and lover decided to quit both the business and her. To add insult to injury her other partner, her brother, decided he was done too leaving her holding the bag and dealing with local suppliers whom she still owes money.
I felt for Bec because she’d lost so much and it was easy to see she wasn’t going to trust Wyatt given the last person who came in from out of town screwed her in more ways than one. I admired the fact that she wasn’t going to give up without a fight and while she did use Wyatt to get her hands on much needed supplies he did so willingly hoping that once she started brewing again he would reap the benefits. I’m going to admit that at times all the beer talk made my eyes glaze over, BUT I am not a beer drinker (in fact I can’t even stand the smell of it) and I can see where it would be interesting to people who do enjoy craft beer.
The attraction between Wyatt and Bec was pretty much evident from the start and given he lived two hours from Bec’s hometown; they both knew what they were getting into. While they spent a lot of time together, they didn’t share a whole lot of getting to know you chit chat and I kind of missed that, and so I was surprised by the rush to the “I love you” stage. However, I was so happy for them that I kind of overlooked that and figured they’ll have lots of time to really learn about one another as this series continues.
Thoroughly engaging with intriguing characters and a fantastic small town atmosphere, Meg Benjamin’s Love On Tap was a joy to read.
