Wyatt Montgomery knows a barrel of legendary Zoria imperial stout will help his Denver gastropub stay on top. The only problem is the brewery that made it is no longer in business. When Wyatt hears the brewmaster has only one barrel left, he won’t stop until it’s his. He doesn’t consider what this mythical barrel might cost him. And he certainly doesn’t anticipate his reaction to the heart-stoppingly beautiful brewmaster he needs to convince to sell him the beer.
When Wyatt rushes into Bec Dempsey’s small-town cooperative offering to buy the last barrel of her precious Zoria, she’s thrown for a loop. She’s been burned by city-slickers before, and she’ll be damned if she’ll let it happen again. But when things start heating up between them, Bec decides to make Wyatt a counteroffer. One she hopes he won’t refuse.

This story features Wyatt Montgomery and Bec Dempsey. He wants her last barrel of craft beer and is willing to jump through hoops to get it. He just didn't expect his biggest competitor to come along and start throwing money around, trying to buy it out from under him. Throughout the quest for the last barrel of craft beer there's a quiet romance brewing.
The storyline was good. The characters were well developed and definitely added to the story but I didn't feel a whole lot of emotion throughout the book. Even the intimate scenes were robotic for me. There was too much information on craft beer and Gastro pubs. The romance kind of got lost inside all that information.
Meg Benjamin is an amazing author but this particular book didn't do it for me. Even so, this will not stop me from reading other books by this same author. And, I LOVE the cover!!!
I thought this was a very enjoyable read. Very interesting characters, some quirky secondary characters, and a storyline that was very entertaining. I did find Bec to be a bit of a coward for not facing her friends but she finally came around with Wyatt's coaxing and support. Wyatt was just a sweetheart and the way he interacted with Bec and Carol was sweet. Definitely a book I would recommend.
