Swerve: St. Martin's. (Brooklyn Brotherhood, Bk. 1). Nov. 2016. 247p. ebk. ISBN 9781250114211. $3.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
With this new series, Fox (Baby It's Cold Outside) leaves the wilds of Alaska for a small Brooklyn neighborhood. Nick Kelley is a hometown hero and owner of the local hangout. Emma Bradley is leaving Nick's bar after a horrible date when she opens the door to a wild punch thrown by a drunk. The punch is just another unfortunate moment in a string of events that have brought her back home. Her luck begins to change that night after Nick takes care of her in his office. The next Monday, they both find themselves on opposing sides as she is back in town to help run her father's brewery, the same brewery Nick wanted to buy. What follows is a tango between two former high school chemistry partners that affects both their business dealings and their personal lives. This contemporary romance brews a tale of desire that mixes sports, beer, and high school crushes.
VERDICT Fans of Fox's previous series ("Coltons of Texas"; "Dangerous in Dallas") will find here a more innocent and realistic romance in a story about two people who find happiness through craft beer.
