Brewing up trouble one pint at a time.

Enemies ...After years away, Miranda Sweet returns to Salvation, Virginia to save her family's brewery, but her fate is in the hands of her lover-turned-enemy, Logan. What's a girl to do when the only person who can help her is the man who betrayed her?

Lovers ...Logan Martin can't believe his luck when the woman who smashed his heart to smithereens walks into his bank asking for his help. What she doesn't know is that he needs the land her brewery is on--and he'll do whatever it takes to get it.

An Irresistible Combination ...Their wager becomes a battle between their attraction and their determination to win. But it's in each other's arms that they realize there might be more at stake now than their bet. With the town against the Sweet Salvation Brewery's success, Logan has to choose between what's expected of him and what he really wants...

This book was a modern day Romeo and Juliet kind of thing. Without the suicide and things like that.

Things I liked:

Miranda Sweet- AKA Juliet. She and her sisters were run out of town because of their last name. I really liked the insight we got into Miranda. She gave off this vibe that she was confidant and owned the town. But her commentary was anything but. She was always nervous and she managed to fight through it to get what she wanted. I felt really bad for her character. She was being judged for a family she didn’t choose. She was a great character. She was pretty funny through this book too. She was also really determined.

Logan Martin- AKA Romeo. He was born into the good family of Salvation. Once he got his head out of his ass he was a sweet guy. He was another guy trying to get out from underneath his father and he found the way to do that was to love the person he wanted to love no matter who said he wasn’t ok. He was great when he finally started to see how Miranda was treated. Plus he was a hot guy. Those steamy scene were just that. Steamy!

The Story line- I am not going to lie. I have always been a huge fan of Romeo and Juliet and I thought this was a fun retelling of it. It was a different and modern take. The writing was great and the flow really worked. It didn’t linger in places that it shouldn’t. For example it didn’t have extra-long, unnecessary sex scenes. Sometimes those things go on and on but these ones were great.

Things I didn’t like:

Logan Martin- Yes he is part of the things I liked but it’s the before he got his head out of his ass that bothered me. He was a complete dick just like the rest of the town for like the first part of this book. It drove me nuts considering he had no reason to act that way other than because of her name.

The Town- Those people were complete douches to the Sweets. I can’t even begin to understand how an entire town hates someone that much. I guess it was just a little unbelievable to me.

The story was a fun and quick read. I hope the next ones are the sisters because I think that would be fun. If you love enemy to lover stories this one should be on your TBR!!!
