What was supposed to be one night of passion and fun turns into more in Meg Benjamin’s Saison For Love, the second book in her Love On Tap series. Two people, who have known one another for years, spend one night cutting loose knowing that given the complications in their lives, they couldn’t have more. Saison For Love was on the sweeter side of romance yet there was so much want and passion between these two that it just oozed off the page.
Liam Dempsey has always enjoyed his job as a bartender at Black Mountain Tavern even when the winter sports people left town and just the locals remained, but this year Liam is a bit more melancholy as the end of the season approaches because soon he’ll be leaving his hometown for a more promising job in Utah. Given the way the new owner of the tavern has run it into the ground, Liam is looking forward to this new opportunity until one night with his sister’s friend and local business owner, Ruth Colbert, drops into his bar and they share a night neither one can forget.
I loved the way the connection between Liam and Ruth took them both a bit by surprise, knowing each other for many years neither one had really seen the other as anything other than friends, but following one night together they can’t seem to get the other off their mind. Their lives are complicated, Ruth has a 12 year old daughter and Liam is leaving town for a new job, but the more time they spend in each other’s company and most of that time not intimately, they grow closer and knowing their relationship has an expiration date is making them both a bit crazy. Thing I really appreciated about this book is that even though Liam is a bit younger than Ruth, it isn’t a big deal to him just like her having an almost teenage daughter doesn’t bother Liam even though he really had never thought about kids. In fact, Liam and Ruth’s daughter, Carol, got along well with her helping him secure dates with her mom and him being a sounding board when she needed one. I liked that they had an adult relationship, that there were some issues that came up but they were good about communicating and moving on.
This book had a HFN ending, but I was pleased there wasn’t a rush to tie up every little thing in a nice neat bow. This couple will face challenges, but I have faith given their communications skills they will be together in the long run. Engaging, sweet, with a sensual side and a plot that moved at a realistic pace, I loved Saison For Love.

I didn't put this one down, I just loved the whole storyline, Liam and his sister as brewers, his sister now taking that over, he does help out now and then. The bar he works at has been bought out and the new owner is a half wit and running it into the ground. Liam already has a back up plan in place.
Ruth, who owns a cafe and is known for her goat cheese. Yup, that's right, goats. Her brother is a goat farmer, she's also lived the life and is a single parent. When her cook/chef/expert morning muffin maker leaves, she's without a dependable cook and hires a ??, you can fill in that blank, luckily Liam steers the chef from his bar to Ruth and it's a match made in heaven. Are Liam and Ruth the same? Ruth and Liam's sister are best friends, she works for Ruth part time too, but they're keeping their blossoming relationship a little quiet for now. Ruth has been burned once in a bad way and her ex continues to hijack her life via her daughter. I felt so bad for her. But you'll love her when she plays little Miss Matchmaker with Ruth and Liam. I loved it! Smart kid.
So the story bobs and weaves and you get sucked right in and then, the proverbial cheese doesn't curdle and my heart skipped a couple beats. My grip grew tighter on my kindle as the story took the long way home. And what a story it was.
Meg, great book! I loved every single minute of it. A well deserved 5 star book.
**arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**
Liam is this good looking (which you can tell from the way women seem to want to throw themselves at him) bartender/brewer who is only too happy to supply the women with what they want. Benjamin has supplied us with the quintessential bad boy women can’t wait to get in bed and then become incredibly surprised when he doesn’t turn out to be commitment material.
To balance the ego and eye rolling masculinity we also get Ruth. A strong, beautiful, independent woman. She normally puts herself and her career ahead of men but wow I wish Liam was real and I could meet him because even he manages to convince her to hop aboard the Liam express.
Occasionally there comes a time in every bad boys life when he meets the woman who CAN alter his ways and it’s possible Ruth is Liam’s kryptonite. They’ve been friends for years so there wasn’t the insipid insta-love that seems so prevalent.
Since every good romance novel needs a twist, some kind of hardship the couple needs to overcome in order to prove they belong together, you have no need to worry because it has been provided in the form of an ex who appears out of thin air suddenly wanting a relationship with his daughter.
The dialogue was written in a conversational tone and the story moved pretty fast so it felt more like you were watching a movie than reading a book. It feels like she put her heart into these characters and the story they needed to tell; it is well balanced giving us context through both the eyes of Ruth and Liam.
Overall it’s a sweet story that will leave you feeling happy you gave it a chance.
