I’ve Got My Mind Set on Brew

Alcove. Apr. 2024. 320p. ISBN 9781639106493. pap. $18.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Aspiring craft beer brewer Kat Malone has always taken a backseat in relationships, with her relatives as well as with her ex. Fortunately, she’s formed a found family at Resistance Brewpub in Chicago, where she works as a server. It’s the kind of place that caters to misfits and gives Kat a chance to apprentice with the brewmaster. All that is about to change, however, when the owners suddenly reveal that an unexpected event has forced them to sell their beloved brewpub to an investor whose hot yet obnoxious son, Ryan, plans to fully revamp Resistance in a way that goes against everything it has stood for. But Ryan needs Kat’s help. Can she put aside her needs, once again, and team up with Ryan to save Resistance? The novel’s steamy moments happen behind closed doors, but the chemistry of the two main characters is enough to keep this romance chugging ahead to its happy-ever-after.
VERDICT Jayne (author of Lady and the Camp under the name Stephanie J. Scott) has found a unique niche with the brewing angle; beer aficionados and romance readers alike will enjoy learning about the brewing process just as much as Kat does in this enemies-to-lovers romance.
