I received this book from Give Me Books PR in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The beer’s not the only thing getting tapped.
I have a problem. A doe-eyed brunette in the form of my new co-worker. She’s taken my promotion and I intend to do everything in my power to get it back. To prove I’m the man for the job.
Nobody warned me that one night with her would change everything.
The rules are simple. Complete two months of training at my new job at On Tap Brewery and I’ll keep my manager position. Fail, and I’ll have to crawl back to my parents and die a slow and painful death at a desk job.
I never would’ve guessed I’d have to choose between this promotion…or love.
What do you do when your boss hires somebody for the job you think is yours? Trying to make the boss see he shouldn’t have hired her of course, so falling for her is NO option. Tap That is a sweet and funny story about two people in an awkward position, but who can’t resist the attraction between them. I’ve enjoyed reading this story.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. Nope. Not going there. He’s the enemy. He doesn’t want me here—he’s made that much crystal clear—and I refuse to allow whatever crack scent he’s wearing to penetrate my resolve.”
For the past five years Reid has been a bartender at On Tap, not the most difficult job in the world, but he enjoys it and he’s ready for more. Knowing his boss is going to work less, Reid knows (or thinks) he has the right experience for the management position, but to his disbelief an outsider is hired. An outsider who seems to fake it, but who also makes him feel funny things. Very confusing, and Reid doesn’t know what to do.
Callie is finally doing something she wants. Okay, it took some ‘lies’ and a bit of creative thinking, but she has landed herself a job away from her parents. Callie happy with it, but it doesn’t take long before she realizes running a bar is way more work then she anticipated. A moody, handsome bartender doesn’t make the situation much better…
“Holy shit. She has no idea what she did last night. Oh-ho. This’ll be fun. My lips stretch wide into a grin. “Don’t recall those naughty text messages you sent me last night?” I tsk. “Such a shame, Callie.”
Tap That is a collaboration, written by RC Boldt and Jennifer Blackwood. I love RC Boldt’s books, but Jennifer Blackwood is a totally new author for me. Tap That is told from a double POV, so you get to know Reid and Callie pretty well. You know all about their funny thoughts and sleazy plans they have for each other, but you also see their more vulnerable sides. I love this couple and their story!
Callie is a sweetheart, who desperately wants to prove herself to her parents. So in that light I get her actions, but at the same time she makes my eyes role. Pretending is not cool. I love that Reid is a normal guy for once, a friendly bartender without a shady past and over-the-top issues. He’s a nice guy, but I wanted to smack him for not speaking up is mind to his boss sooner. But that would have made Tap That a whole less interesting…
“Hey,” I murmur softly. “Hey,” she mimics. “I love you.” As soon as I utter the words, her eyes take on a certain dreamy quality that I’ll never tire of seeing.”
