When brewery owner Dustin Prufrock meets sexy saleswoman Helena Turner, sparks fly—angry sparks. They seem destined to clash, until a hot hookup in a cold beer cooler changes everything.
For Dustin, it's a life-changing moment that sets him on a path away from his birthright, while Helena faces her fears about committing to a man considered the playboy of the microbrewing world. The power of preconceived notions nearly tears them apart—until they meet up with Dustin's friend Erik, who provides an erotic and emotional connection that completes them all.
But fate has different plans. When Dustin is forced to honor his responsibilities as heir to a large business, Helena and Erik are thrown together in an attempt to run Dustin's brewery. Now the strength and trust of their once-balanced threesome has been shattered…and mutual lust might not be enough to keep them all together.

LUST ON TAP was an enjoyable and believable story.
The story starts out with Dustin, a trust fund boy, who rebelled and opened his own brewery, and was struck by his undeniable attraction to saleswoman, Helena Turner. Liz Crowe does a wonderful job of putting words to the electric connection between them. Dustin admits to himself he has only ever felt this once before, with his friend Erik.
Helena tries to resist, aware of his family's wealth and his reputation. But Dustin does not relent. He knows he loves her and that Helena is the one he wants to share his life with. He's willing to accept what Helena will give; he just wants her.
Helena was frustrating at times, but her hesitation is understandable so it worked for me. When Erik steps into their lives, everything seems to fall into place as Helena is surprised by her reaction to Erik and the connection the men have. This interaction will warm your panties.
When circumstances beyond their control affect their relationship, things get turned on end. This was gut wrenching and realistic.
I liked how real Dustin seemed. Pushing back against your family is not easy and it is understandable how he reacts to certain circumstances that develop throughout the book. You also see Dustin develop as a character and how Erik makes him understand that some of what he thinks he wants is just rebellion.
Erik's personal growth was the most enjoyable to watch; his devotion to the only two people he has ever felt drawn to is heartwarming. Erik's thoughts and gestures toward the end of the book will make you lust after him even more than just the physical description of this tall, handsome specimen. His ability to understand Helena's thoughts and warm her soul makes you want to be the one curled up in his warm embrace.
Liz Crowe has done a wonderful job developing three characters that will hold your interest and sometimes have you holding your breath.
