Enemies on Tap by Avery Flynn is the first book in her Sweet Salvation Brewery trilogy, which follows the Sweet triplets, and them finding love in their hometown of Salvation. This first book centers on oldest sister Miranda Sweet, who after years of living in Harbour City, heads back home with one goal in mind: turn around the family brewery her and her sisters inherited, sell it to the company she works for, and get a coveted promotion with a corner office. One problem: her first love, and arch nemesis, needs the land the brewery is on for his own project. While battling each other, old passions ignite, leaving Miranda and Logan wondering what is more important: love or pride?
Enemies on Tap has been on my tbr for a while now. I love Avery Flynn's other work, so I was looking forward to it (and it was a last minute attempt to get an "E" titled read in for one of my reading challenges. After reading Enemies on Tap though, I left feeling ... disappointed. It's terribly unoriginal, the story is ... okay. The characters were fun, but not much depth. I think if this book was longer (it's pretty short), Avery could have really fleshed out these characters more, and made this story something more. Instead, we are left with a novella length, uninspired romance.
Enemies on Tap didn't leave me wanting more - I don't plan on finishing the trilogy - but if you like quick reads about small towns and enemies to lovers, try it out. It might be more to your liking.
