A faceless name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. But then the unplanned happened.
We met. And all I wanted from her was a dirty weekend . . . until that wasn’t enough and I longed for so much more.

Lawrence Thorn suddenly means the world to me. And that’s a problem. She’s my business partner’s sister. Forbidden fruit. Pursuing her can mean trouble for me at Lovibond Brewery. But I don’t care.

I yearn for her skin against mine.
I crave her smell on my body.
I want to make her laugh and then hear her moan my name.
And she does for a brief moment in time.

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.

My Review

“It began with two college guys brewing beer in their apartment. They dreamed of turning their hobby into a multimillion-dollar company”

Tap by Author Georgia Cates is book one in the Lovibond Novel series. It is a fun and flirtatious read, served with a side of sexy and serious.

“The saddest discovery you can ever make is realizing you’ve fallen truly, madly, and deeply in love with a dream that will never be.”

Tap is an interesting guy. One part of his life appears to be wide-open for exploration and mischief, the other is very structured and follows definite rules. Wren is what some would call a tree-hugger, a free spirit. She loves life and lives it to its fullest. Each have their own career paths about which they are passionate and deeply involved. Their chance meeting brings to light feelings that neither bargained for or are prepared to encounter.

“…sometimes being strong is about following your heart. Taking chances. Stepping forward when the door swings open, before it slams and flattens in your face. Because that would suck.”

This quote was a perfect example of Tap. One minutes it was so deep and moving. And in the next blink, I was laughing uncontrollably from the switch in word choices and tone. Written in dual points of view, Tap was another great addition for Author Georgia Cates. I must admit that the first twenty percent held my interest, but did not endear me to the story. However, from thirty percent on, I fell in love with every part of it and did not want to let it go. I was very fond of the setting in which the story took place and the uniqueness of the storyline. In addition, the characteristics that were brought to light in both Tap and Wren were those to be admired. Vulnerability with strength is an invaluable characteristic in a male character. And the ability to love unconditionally is an amazing trait, regardless of male or female; Wren was a perfect example of this. Outside of Tap and Wren, they also had such wonderful friends that added pieces to this story which were valuable in bringing the perfect ending to this story. I was thrilled to know that there would be more novels to come with Tap and Wren’s friends, and anxiously await these additions in the series.

“Your love drowns all my demons.”



Lawrence Thorn

I grab the bottom of his T-shirt and give it a tug. “I think you’re overdressed.”

“I know how to fix that.”

He crosses his arms and grabs the bottom of his shirt, pulling it up and over his head. I stand in awe, taking in his male beauty. Broad shoulders. Pecs filled with muscle. A deep V at his waist, pointing right to his dick. That shit is awesome. Any woman who says it isn’t is a damn liar.

He has ink. A lot. I will take my time exploring that a little later. Maybe even outline it with the tip of my tongue.

My hands splay over the mounds of muscle covering the top of his chest. I suck a nipple into my mouth and give it a tug with my teeth. Women pay too little attention to men’s nipples. But not me. I love them.

Brou’s hands lace through my hair at the nape. “I have a confession.”

I look up but don’t release his nipple. “Mmm hmm?”

“When I turned around and saw you yesterday, I thought you were the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen. And then you told me you were Stout’s sister. I was crushed because I knew that meant you were out of my reach.”

I release his nipple and straighten so we’re face to face. Sort of. He is quite a bit taller than me.

I snake my arms around his shoulders. “I think I’m very much within your reach. I’m yours until the morning so make it count.”

He slides his hands down my sides into the waist of my maxi skirt and panties. “We may not sleep at all tonight.”

“I’m all in.” Even if it means I won’t be worth shit driving home tomorrow. Every orgasm he gives me will make it worth it.

His mouth possesses mine as he pushes my bottoms down. I step out when both pieces drop to my feet and reach for the button of his jeans.

Brou ignores his phone vibrating on the nightstand. “You need to get that?”

“No fucking way. I’ve waited all day for this.”

A full minute doesn’t pass before the phone dances again. “You sure?”


The phone rings a third time within two minutes. “They’re persistent.”

“They’re dead if they don’t leave us alone.”
